The electoral college system is complex - and a brave attempt at building a fair democratic system - but there is much to be said for reform as well, when you look at where the US is now. It would take great intelligence to tinker with it effectively and get the US public to go with that.

Voting is a fundamental right . Making it hard for people to vote is usually a form of discrimination against the disadvantaged.

What does an intelligent voter with a conscience do in a political landscape gone haywire? Where do we place our trust? It is clear that a revolution needs to happen - not blood in the streets - but a fundamental change in how the decision making process occurs. We must look to technology to improve two way communication between candidates and voters on policies and platforms and make elections work for the good of society. www.public-democracy.com

People are smarter than opinion pollsters give them credit for. Across the world there are hung parliaments - the system is creaking. Technology must lead the way forward for a more agile, responsive democracy . www.public-democracy.com

Are we so dumb that we can't find a way to govern ourselves fairly and for the common good? You'd think as a large group we would show signs of group intelligence... yet so many people are dissatisfied with democratic outcomes across the world so many strange electoral outcomes, distorted by money and corruption. It has to improve and technology must play a part. www.public-democracy.com

It seems that Americans don’t like to be forced to do anything, no matter how correct it is, appearing to view voting as a right but not a responsibility.

We're all for compulsory voting because people are lazy and that creates bad democracy. Only 26% of US voters elected Trump. . 1/4 of all eligible voters in US aren't even registered. Presidential races bring out 60% of voters, but for Congressional elections only 1/2 get off their lazy butts.
