Why do we even have a Congress?
Why do we even vote for representatives or senators?
What's the point?
It's not like the person who gets elected to Congress actually does what we WANT.
Nobody questions electing Congress, but lots of people question the electoral college, even though the way they operate is EXACTLY THE SAME.
You vote for somebody in the hopes they vote the way you want.
Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't.
In neither case does it matter what the majority want.
The electoral college is just a single-purpose, special Congress.
Any argument you bring against having the electoral college works equally well against having a Congress.
