Sure, and counting slaves as 3/5ths of a person was a feature, not a bug at the time the Constitution was written. That doesnít mean such ďfeaturesĒ are eternal.

So, yes, a relatively small number of people can shift elections.
That makes no sense. Letís say 1,500 people work on a large building, but one person puts on the finishing touch. That doesnít negate the work of the other 1,499 people. Same with elections.

Quote:
The US is a republic, not a democracy. "One man, one vote" still exists, by the way, with the EC.
That first phrase is meaningless and only intended to make some citizens better than others. The second is untrue, as you are arguing that some voters should have 1.25 votes, and others 0.89 votes, based on whether they like city life or prefer country living. Thatís absurd and indefensible.

Yup, it's a sort of electoral affirmative action....
So you DONíT believe in one person, one vote.

Quote:
The US electoral system is astonishingly strong and it has produced the most stable one.
When the person with fewer votes gets into office twice within a single generation, that canít be called strong or stable. Thatís broken and fucked up.
