8. Flush it! I don't ever...

I don't ever want to hear about another swing state or panicked predictions that so-and-so will could win the EV but not the PV. I don't want to hear that so-and-so has virtually no path to victory when polls in western states are still open. I don't want to hear that it's OK for me not to vote because Illinois is solid blue. The electoral college discourages voter turnout. This country isn't center right. If the 95% turnout, we'll never again have to worry about the 5%.

Flush it!

EDIT #1
Those who don't show up now because they don't believe their vote matters got the wrong message. Their vote work down ballot races mean a lot! But they don't know that. That's because they focus solely on the top of the ballot. That's the message unsophisticated voters get courtesy the electoral college.

EDIT #2
The Senate gives tiny states all the ridiculously disproportionate power they believe they deserve.
