That's the logically inconsistent part to me. It bothers you that your state is getting screwed by the E.C., but not that it is getting screwed, in almost exactly the same proportions, in the legislative branch. Do you feel that how much influence you (as an individual voter) have in choosing the president is more important than how much influence you (again, as an individual voter) have in shaping the laws, rules, and regulations that we all must follow? If so, why?
