Re: EC vs. NPV
I don't really feel like responding to all the derp here in this thread, so I'll just limit my post here to stating that I am in favor of the Electoral College. I actually would prefer to change it to a 2 votes per state model, if we changed it. Increase federalism. But I've got no belief that the nation would support any of the changes to our system that I'd like to see implemented.
Personally, the far more important thing to me is ending universal suffrage and returning to to land-owners only. If you don't have a stake in the country, you shouldn't have a voice in the policies.
Do you hear the people sing / Lost in the valley of the night?
It is the music of a people / Who are climbing to the light.
For the wretched of the earth / There is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end / And the sun will rise...
