no to hate: seek to understand then to be understood. no to injustice, no to apathy. YES to understanding and truth and love. I try. God save me from being a hypocrite.
We can deny our doubts and turn our attention to our faith.
Today, let’s practice starving our fears and feeding our faith. Faith with medicine.

Dear Ms. [Redacted]
Thank you for contacting me regarding proposals to reform the electoral college system. I am a long-time supporter of efforts to improve our election process and abolish the electoral college.
In America, every citizen has an equal right to vote and to have that vote counted.
That is why in the last Congress I cosponsored S.J. Res. 41, a joint resolution proposing an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to abolish the electoral college. Introduced by Senator Boxer, the resolution provides for the direct popular election for the President and Vice President. I introduced a similar bill in 2009. Unfortunately, neither bills passed the Senate.
We are the beacon of democracy in the world, and yet, voters in this country do not have the opportunity to elect their leaders directly. If the principle of one-person, one vote is to mean anything, it is that the candidate who wins a majority of the votes wins the presidency.
I appreciate your interest in this critical issue, and I hope you will not hesitate to contact me in the future.
