A Little Too Much Democracy

Henry Lamb from writes an article that mentions two things that don't get talked about enough or not at all: the Electoral College and the 17th Amendment.

The Electoral College is an ingenious scheme to balance the power among small and larger states. Without the Electoral College, a few large states could elect the president, and the small states would be left completely out of the voting. But the wisdom of our founders foiled the monopoly of power for the big states.

Ahhh, brings us back to 2000. Was that really 7 years ago?
