- The Electoral College exists so that a few huge American cities cannot dominate our elections
- For some reason the billions of people in these cities don’t vote like the rest of the country
- But you might argue “If these cities hold the majority, then shouldn’t their votes matter just as much as in less populated areas?
I will concede that there is a good argument, in a democracy, for “majority rules,” with the following caveat:
Those who do not contribute to government (and those who are subsidized by government) should have their vote suspended. There is nothing negative implied in this action; no record is kept. Voting privileges are restored as soon as these individuals are again contributing.
