5. i'm more than happy to scrap the electoral college

other countries have managed democracies with nothing like this mess, and it's ridiculous to call ourselves a democracy when the second place vote-getter can not only win, but can preside with active contempt for the majority that voted against them.

just pointing out that one few downsides of scrapping the electoral college is that it would disperse republican fraud to precincts where they could more readily get away with it. and being republicans, we know they will.

so if we ever manage to get rid of the electoral college, we better have a plan for addressing the inevitable republican shenanigans.
