I Always Find These Types of Pieces a Little Silly

I always find these types of articles a bit silly.

Now don't get me wrong, I think the sentiment behind it is great. But, really, what is the point? The author explains (rather well) the WHY behind the electoral college. She also does a could job of explaining why it will never change (but she does that quite late in the piece).

Complaining about the electoral college is personally fulfilling and sociologically useless. It would need a Constitutional Amendment to pass. Even if you could get a 2/3s passage in the house, there is no way 3/4s of the states would choose to dilute their citizen's votes for equity (only 3 or 4 states would gain in this, California, New York and Florida).

Articles like this should be reserved for a couple of high under-grads arguing into the wee hours on how life would be better if they were in charge.

What is too much Taylor Swift

 This much ... when the singer is used to send a message about POSSIBLE future problems?
