But is the US even really democratic? We have here two parties with no real opposition or any incentive to change, who are essentially the same. We have mounting apathy levels. We have frankly disgusting appeals for "patriotism" to support the president. Where is the democracy in the US?I don't think abandoning the electoral college would be a good idea. Unless you work under the slogan of 'Death to Democracy in the U.S.' and 'Mob Rule 100%'.
But to say that it is insignificant that because this is disregarded, the majority of Americans did not get the president they want is rather risible, isn't it?Since when? (hint: overall popular vote has NEVER decided who would be president)
