Re: Lies, damned lies and Trumpy's declarations
And you end in a situation where some people are more equals than others. What is the justification to the fact that if you live somewhere your vote does not have the same weight as if you live somewhere else? Why would geography have an impact on your vote? "On Man/One Woman, One vote" is democratic, "On Man/One Woman, 0.6 to 1.4 votes according where you vote" isn't.
For the Senate it's something different, because there is the Congress to represent the People (theoretically) when the Senate represents the States; and a counterbalance can be understood for the legislative branch. But we are talking about the President, who has no other executive equivalent.
The US system was specifically designed not to allow pure majorities to elect the President.
I agree, it was designed so the most conservative part of the country is overrepresented: it's stability by conservatism
The US Constitutional system has lasted for a long time, compared to almost any other country's political system
Absolute Monarchy lasted millenniums in Egypt, does that make it a better system?
