Change The Corrupt Electoral College?

January will be a good time to work on changing our corrupt Electoral College. A number of possibilities come to mind.

1. Keep the corrupt E.C. unchanged – the obvious choice of the republicans and states like WY and AK.

2. Eliminate the E. C. altogether – the obvious choice for CA. This would be a hard sell, but a good possibility for reformers to keep as a threat to the opposition.

3. Compromise A : Keep the E.C. but eliminate one of the two ‘bonus’ votes that the Founders gave to ease the fears of small states.

4. Compromise B : Keep the E.C. but eliminate both of the ‘bonus’ votes, making popular vote the sole basis of each E. C. delegation.
