I haven't had a bone to pick in awhile. But as Election Day approaches, I just can't help complain about electoral votes. They featured this subject on CBS Sunday Morning. You've just got to watch the clip of Mo Rocca teaching a classroom of kids about Electoral College.
When every child's vote counted, they voted for markers instead of colored pencils. When they demonstrated how the electoral votes worked, colored pencils won. The expression on their faces when they find out their vote doesn't really count is simply priceless. And, just how I feel about the whole voting process.
If you're frustrated about this, you're not alone. According to a CBS News Poll, 62% of Americans want to get rid of Electoral College. Even Thomas Jefferson called it "an inkblot on the Constitution."
So why isn't that on the ballot for Americans to vote on? Who does this voting system benefit? Why hasn't it been changed? What can we do to get it abolished?
