Re: Electoral College

For anyone that found the last post on the Electoral College interesting in any way, I felt that I needed to share this as a follow up as I stumbled across last Friday evening. Β It appears there is more than meets the eye to the Electoral College as you will find out in the CGP Grey video below.

After watching the video it points out a couple more overall flaws that are part of our current system. Β It is interesting to think that in the current system, in December the Electoral College could reverse the decision made by the “Public” (States Electoral Votes) a little over a week ago. I agree this would be bad to enact as it could cause a further divided our country.

(The current system) benefits no citizen and protects no states

All of this is very interesting to point out as some of it I never knew before and honestly can’t believe that we have a system in place today that allows it. Β I do hope in the near future there are more discussions on what a modern election should look like. Β I will be watching as all of this has really sparked my interest as well.
