Each election there are some who want to change how we elect the President. Specifically, there are calls to do away with the Electoral College.
I believe the Electoral College is a valid and vital concept. What I disagree with is that the electoral votes are awarded on a "winner take all" basis per State.
This last election has shown the continuing trend in American politics to do away with the "melting pot" of America.
We saw ad after ad target specific groups of people in an attempt to convince them to vote as a whole and not give individual thought to a given issue. Two of the more blatant examples covered immigration and support for Israel.
I am reminded of two terms from chemistry that are often confused: "compound" and "mixture."
In a recent letter to the editor of the Las Vegas Sun titled “Stay-at-home moms face less pressure,” the author opened with this remark: “... but until a woman works to earn the money to feed and protect her family, she cannot understand fully the critical need this ailing economy has imposed on so many working women and men.”
I cannot disagree more strongly with that statement.
