I see people complaining about this any way you look at it. People hate the Electoral College because it puts too much power into the hands of party insiders and in the end the popular vote means nothing anyway... Then you've got people screaming that we cannot have direct democracy because a democracy is a bunch of wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.
I think many here would prefer to maintain the Electoral College but eliminate political parties, which is unrealistic, to say the least. People band together to form more powerful alliances with others who share their point of view. This is how people are... this is how animals are... this is how life works. The individual represents the icon of our civilization, but the individual is also typically tripped up or squashed by the majority.
