Let me give you an example of why I think the system worked our perfectly this time... and why I will fight till I am dead and buried to keep this system in place.
I grew up in a rural county in Florida, our water management district had the rules that only counties of a certain population density could vote.
Florida was in a 10 year long drought... the big population density city in our district was running out of water... so do they conserve water, apply restrictions do anything that might annoy their city.. .nope of course not, they voted to pull the water from our county. Lakes dried up.. wells went dry... ranches closed... orange groves died... we had huge problems all so the high population density city could water their lawns during a drought!
It took our county a solid 10 years of fighting in the court system to force them to stop... that was just in one small corner of the country.
After seeing that their is no way I will ever trust the big city areas to ever do a bloody thing other than vote in their own self interest...
That is why I feel the electoral college has been the best way to this point and will remain the best way going forward to give representation to everyone...
Please remember if Hillary runs a halfway decent campaign she wins in a walk... republicans have to be nearly perfect and have the demcorats screw the pooch to win the oval office.
On topic... I would be thrilled to see a Tulsi/Rand ticket... I think it would make the fuzzy little heads of the establishment explode...quite possibly even more so than they have with trump.
