Bill D BS: Trump Actions and Effects (779* d) RE: BS: Trump Actions and Effects 18 Jan 21


Helen.. I too view the electoral college system as an outdated anachronism that hamstrings fair presidential voting.

The problem is, getting rid of it would take a Constitutional amendment that not enough Southern states would support. Many of our problems are related to our basic **states rights** setup. In most countries there are things that can be done by vote or decree for the entire country.... here, on many matters, each state can opt out and write its own rules. Joe Biden plans to issue a mask mandate on Wednesday, but it will only apply to federal buildings and workers.

230+ years of our history are both an asset and a hindrance to certain types of progress.
