Electoral College Vote In Wyoming Worth 3.6 Times As Much As In California
Electoral votes should be distributed by population. Letting low population states have 3.6 times the power of another state is idiotic.
from imposing their will on the rest of the country. There is some logic in that, but clearly we would have been better off in 2016 without the electoral college. The key is to get out the vote where the EC is irrelevant.
"Big States will have too much power"
My response is this "You mean where the actual voters live?"
A place with more people should have more power.
Things change. That's why Pennsylvania and Wisdom went for trump.
What about my Democrat vote in this ruby red state? He said Alabama votes would be useless without the electoral college.... well my Democrat vote is already useless. That argument burns me up. The electoral college needs to go.
My daughter spent a year there one month shooting a film. She took turns with her design partner crying on the others shoulder about how badly they wanted to be home.
Unless something has changed since they were there I'll leave the populating of Wyoming up to braver souls. Lol.
Even Wyoming may go blue.
Everything he touches, dies...including the Repuke Party.
We go around the world scolding, chastising, berating other countries for not being democratic enough, and then we hang on to the long outdated electoral college.
Individuals who live in populous states like California, New York, Texas and Florida are not equal when it comes to electing our president to individuals who live in Montana.
The electoral college is an anachronism we can no longer accept.
Do away with the electoral college. Amend the Constitution.
And while we are at it, let's make it very clear that corporations are not people, not persons in the eyes of the law. Nor are other organizational forms like partnerships or LLCs, etc. Only human beings are persons.
I've found that if you bring up the inadequate representation being unfair to those living there, people get pissed off.
There is a joke about Wyoming ranchers wearing velcro gloves, but it's a baaa baaad joke.
New Zealand...where men are men...and sheep are nervous.
I believe our Kiwi friends tell the same jokes about us. But that's just baaaaaaaaddd!
And he told me a cool story about how his silver tongued grandfather traveled to Australia to woo a wife, telling her he owned a station. Well, when she arrived in New Zealand, she discovered he was a lowly milker at a dairy. They didn't talk after that, but they did manage to have eleven children.
That's why the electoral college is based on both representation as well as statehood.
CA has 53 reps, WY has one. CA has 55 times as many votes. The number of senators skews it to 55 : 3. That's still not 3.6x.
