Letters to the editor

I applaud the “Both Sides” idea.  But both McKinney and Ibbotson missed a key point, as will usually be the case if you continue to exclude a constitutional libertarian point of view.

The Electoral College is a key provision in the Great Compromise between small states and large states, without which the Constitution would have never been ratified.  Changing the terms of the deal should come, if at all, only with a counter-offer acceptable to the small states.  An example might be a strengthening of the 10th Amendment that clearly restores more power to the states.
