Some voters, particularly voters in States where a Kerry win is certain, complain that the Electoral College disenfranchises them. They say that their votes don't count because the election isn't decided by the national popular vote. I agree with you -- 100 percent. So, here's what you can do about it:
Let's say you're a Democrat in New York (or California or Massachusetts, etc). You know that your vote won't make a difference because Kerry's going to take your State's electoral votes, no matter what. So don't vote. And pass the word to several million other "disenfranchised" Democrats in your State. Suddenly, your State's Republicans will feel enfranchised, for a change.
