"Gov. Jerry Brown believes that 'the occupant of the White House should be the candidate who wins the most votes.' On Monday, he signed a National Popular Vote bill that could hand the state's 55 electoral votes, not to the candidate who wins California, but to the candidate who wins the most votes nationally. ... Bad idea." [editor's note: Correct! The real direction for "greater democracy" (as I've been saying for about a decade or two) would be decentralizing electoral votes (one per congressional district) within each state - SAT] (08/11/11)
