Larry David made a humorous Super Bowl commercial. Playing John Hancock, he asks “No King? The people vote for a President? Even the stupid people vote?” Hancock grapples with others to tear the Constitution to pieces. It’s funny and we laugh.

Take a moment to digest the fact this conversation actually took place. Article II of the Constitution created the Electoral College Vote. Our Founders did not trust ordinary citizens to elect a President. 

This is a roadblock to true democracy. We need enough states to adopt the process of sending electors to Congress based solely on the popular vote to equal 270 electoral votes.
