In my last post I tried to show how the Electoral College protects minorities, such as rural residents, from the tyranny of the majority. When all is determined by popular vote, rural residents get the shaft.
The following is somewhat long and is Colorado specific but makes my point, I believe.
Our (P)regressive Governor on the campaign trail once drew an audience of less than thirty in Craig, CO. His support was from the urban areas and the trust funder infested mountain towns. One would hope he would rise above pettiness and try to serve the whole state.
Another possibility is rewarding supporters with an appointment to a no work involved commission with a potential for under the table earnings. No mistake, water is Colorado’s biggest asset.
Readers outside of Colorado may just shrug and say so what. You might rethink that if you live downstream along the many rivers that originate in Colorado.
