Re: Math Against Tyranny - US Electorial College

Andrew, I am going out on a limb here, because I could be wrong.  But if I understand you correctly and if (now I sound like Gore!)you read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, the electoral college makes the whole process fair, especially between small and large population states.
>Doing this county by county in a mini-electoral college format just creates too much opportunity for skewing the vote in favor of the larger metro areas.<   BOY THIS IS TOUGH FOR ME!  I believe the electoral college helps to keep it fair when populations are diverse, especially in terms of from state to state.  Senators and Congressmen are elected by popular vote because the number of representatives, senators and congressmen, is limited by population OR they represent a certain number of the people, and each state has that number established by population.
Jim, can you or do you desire to help clarify this.  Or am I way out in left field?
