But that is what the Supreme Court felt was the American way??
We touched on this matter in a prior post, but could another 'A. Hitler' take this 'new' approach to the electoral system, that some may like changed, and run with it all the way to the White House? He did it in Germany, but if we cede to a popular vote election, that could very well happen. Especially with said corporations who feed people what THEY would like them to hear.
I still think the way Maine has it's electoral system set up, would work best. To me, that way most votes do count for something and candidates HAVE to make contact with all states during every election,because every electoral vote will mean something, even to those that do not win the popular vote.
I can't speak for other states, but here in NY, if we see one political ad from either side a week, then that is a lot. We are immune to the political side of this election, as all our electoral votes are already in the blue column. The only time these, or any candidatates come to NY is to raise money. For us, that is a good thing, I mean, the no commercials, but we do not get to see the candidates either, except on TV. There are no rallies, no hand shakes, no nothing. If I was a red voter, my vote means absolutely nothing, so why bother.
The system is broken and it needs updating. However they do it, it just needs to be done, to make every vote mean something.
