Obsolete Electoral College

Before computers, the complex electoral college system helped simplify counting the votes for president. It also discouraged the favourite son of the largest state from always winning the presidency. Today, its sole function is to improperly give votes in some states more weight than in others. In addition, the way it works now, Democratic votes in red states and Republican votes in blue states cannot, even in theory, have an effect on the outcome. It is time to switch to one man/woman one vote, regardless of where you live.
