They should have gotten RID of the electoral voting process a long time ago. It really isn't fair. And really doesn't give an accurate account of the individual voting process. Time for a change. But!

Especially when they are not legally bound to their vote reflecting the popular vote. Besides, even the reason that it was concocted, has to make it Unconstitutional to begin with.

I agree and now because of this election they are seeing that it is really unfair and don't really represent the state its in. I just heard Trump is attempting to ban lobbyists. I wonder how that will also play in the next elections. But nevertheless, I smell a rat. I think that given that a lot of voters didn't get in including those mail in votes....they are attempting to ignore that mistake. The controversy now is they didn't count all the votes for Hillary [ It says it's about a million...

and that's why your Presidential vote doesn't count!!! It has been watered down to the lowest level imaginable. Clinton got more votes that Trump and still lost....if they were running for Governor of a state, she would have one!! They also pad the numbers in states by adding federal prisoners. Prisoners can't vote so they count in the population and not in the ballot count. States with the highest prison pops?? Ohio, Florida, Texas, and California.....aren't these the same states that the...

Yep. As why I'm beginning to believe that Hillary dropped the ball in this election in several other ways aside from being betrayed by the 53 percent white women who voted for Trump and the hip hoppers who didn't vote at all. Her arrogance prevented her from hitting the pavement like she should have KNOWING about those electoral votes spewing. In addition, Obama's first presidential win earned more than double the electoral votes [365 to 173] against McCain....way before 8 pm. pacific...

I think the most troubling is how some electoral colleges are forced to vote for the state's choice. For example if the electoral college is a red state that favors Trump, it is expected to vote for Trump. And visa versa-making it unfair for individual voting. Although Obama recommended Clinton concede early when it was clear Trump was winning, that move was extremely pre-mature as we see now. It is my hope that Clinton readdresses the vote count in those rust states that appears to be a...

I say that there should be a recount, especially in "red" and "rust belt" states, and in states that committed the most likely, illegal, purging of voter registrations, or and that "lost" ballots, etc., and in ALL states where the voting machines were switching votes from Clinton to votes for Trump. There should also be a serious investigation into Russian hacking interference. I really find it odd that Hillary would throw in the towel, give up so easily, especially against an opponent that...

I agree. We are supposed to be such an advance country and there is talk about Russia hacking the votes and those that you have mentioned. I wonder why no one was on the money in terms of professionalism, accuracy and fairness. They had enough time to ensure that the ballots, polls and such were in perfect order. I still feel this was a set up. But!

So quickly, are you implying that society would be forced to be more equal? I don't think that it will be equitable even if everyone had access to equal education. There's always going to be those who are more driven, more intelligent than others as well as those who are not as intelligent. However I do think that people have the ability to excel in what they are highly proficient in. Its those talents that will eventually reshape the society.
