Answers from 6, 9 and 10 really scare me. #10 how can you want to get rid of something you don't really understand? #'s 6 and 9, of course there is very little democratic about the EC, that's the whole point!! We do not live in a democracy but a democratic republic! A democracy is what the Greek city-states had, where there were no reprentatives and all decisions are determined by a vote of all citizens.
Go back and read the Articles of Confederation and the gestation of our Constitution. The small states like Rhode Island were seriously afraid of their debt during the war and that the larger states with populations that can afford such payments would enforce them on the smaller states. Then there are areas of commerce to be dealt with and that includes taxes and tariffs too. It is not just about voting, but how the minority are to be protected from the tyranny of the majority. I am sure you folks must have heard that phrase. There was no SCOTUS then you know.
Have you forgotten the Great Compromise of the Constitutional Convention? That to insure fair representation, the 2 houses of Congress were to have equality in the upper house (Senate) and by population in the lower house (Representatives). If you cannot see where I am going with this and how the EC protects the minority voters in a Presidential election, it is a lost cause.
BTW, there is something of importance today that relates to this discussion. That we would be able to limit discussion to only one topic, if we authorized another Constitutional Convention. By definition that is the job of our present government. A convention is what the states called for once they realized the Articles of Confederation would not work or be equitable.The simple answer is that it is not possible to limit discussion in a convention. Which is a very good reason for not having another one and to simply add an Amendment to our present Constitution so as to not screw up the good work done by Benjamin, Thomas, James, John, etc,
