Rural Americans would be serfs if we abolished the Electoral College
If the National Popular Vote drive kills the Electoral College, rural and small town Americans who supply our food and energy will lose their voice.

Rural people choose to sell their goods and services, receive a fair price, and have their freedom protected under law. But history shows that city dwellers have a nasty habit of taking advantage of their country cousins. Greeks enslaved whole masses of rural people, known as helots. Medieval Europe had feudalism. The Russians had their serfs.

It was designed to keep the royal blood lines in the Presidency. ALL Presidents are related by blood and it goes back to King John of England

they already are.

but small town people can be pretty fucking dumb and backward.

what remains of the middle is dwindling.

Diversion.

I am descended from King John 'Lackland', and I most certainly am not part of the cool kids who get to be prezzy. I would hazard a guess that AT LEAST 10% of the population is similarly descended. There most probably is a design the characteristics of which are not what you think.

Farming does not confer privilege. Both urban and rural work contribute to our GDP. Presidents are elected by all the people, and each vote deserves to be weighed equally.
