Electoral College: Why The Popular Vote Equals Tyranny – In Less Than 3 Minutes

In this scenerio, we are using a neighborhood made up of ten families or homes. They decide to pool their resources to improve the neighborhood, and make up rules that they will all abide by, much like a homeowner’s association. Each household will get a vote on how those resources are used.

Now, imagine that two out of those ten households are wealthy, so these are actually mansions. No matter, because every household still gets a vote on how the pooled resources are used.

The wealthy families, do not only have the family itself, but also many employees and staff. The wealthy families then start to complain that every person in the neighborhood should get a vote, rather than per household.

 


Now, if you add up the eight families in the neighborhood, excluding the two wealthy ones, in this scenerio, you come up with 32. If you add up the two wealthy homes, you get 40.

As you can see, it would be very beneficial to the two wealthy families if there was a mass majority vote, instead of one vote per household.

We will call these two families, the Californians and the New Yorkers. Or, Hollywood and Mainstream Media.

In our scenerio, we can see that if you went by a Popular Vote, every household would be forced to fork over their share of resources to be spent on the whole, with no say on how it would be spent. Every single neighborhood vote would come down to: The California and New York families know better, and have already decided for you.
