If we are governed by democracy, Then the only group of people that matters are the individuals, Because there is no greater minority than the individuals. Why then do we feel that the amount of land (wealth) a person has should make their vote more valuable?

Con

I don"t understand the land money thing, But uh. .

YOU ARE A DUMBASSSSSSSSS

It was built undemocraticly by DESIGN. You idiot.

Let me show you:

John Quincy Adams -
"The experience of all former ages had shown that of all human governments, Democracy was the most unstable, Fluctuating and short-lived. "

Samuel Adams -
". . . It does not require a majority to prevail, But rather an irate tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people"s minds. . . "

Benjamin Rush -
"A simple democracy. . . Is one of the greatest evils. "

Noah Webster -
". . . Therefore a pure democracy is generally a very bad government. It is most tyrannical government on Earth. "

Now you see. It was made that way by design.

The electoral college was put in place so the places with a lower population would get an equal chance it effecting elections if we went to a pure populist vote the big cities like NY and LA with there massive populations would have an unfair advantage in choosing the president. Thats the main reason why the left is trying to abolish it and thays why they are going to try and fail.
