Remember kids, when we can hold up less than 5% of the entire population and say, "Look how marginalized they are. We need to change marriage for them to protect their minority rights." It's a good thing because progressives want it.
But when a minority of the population in the eyes of the progressives can outvote them according to the rules of the Electoral College that were very much set up to protect the rights of the *minority,* it is suddenly a bad thing because the minority in question do not gain the progressives what they want.

Why should the east coast and west coast have more say than the middle ?
Because that is what it's all about.
It's been lopsided since the creation of the electoral college.
The EC decides our elections.

Too bad the United States of America aren't a democracy. They're a representative Republic.
Any time I see "threat to democracy" in an article, I automatically discount the author's understanding of how our government is setup.
