Still want to debate the matter? Bring yourself back here, and — despite this being a site devoted to technology and not politics — we’ll have ourselves a public back-and-forth.

Want to read what some of the nation’s major newspapers are saying about the drive to ditch the Electoral College, try this editorial from the New York Times and this one from the Chicago  Sun-Times.

Honestly, I’m itching for a fight. Make my day.
