Even though it's not perfect, it's about the best we will get. If we didn't have it, this country would be run on the decision of 10 to 20 highly populated cities. Outside of those cities, your vote really would not make a difference. Although, if that were the case, locally we wouldn't have to suffer with so many political ads. It sucks being in the swing state of Ohio. I look at it this way. Presidential election campaigns are job creating and putting money into our economy and the rich are paying for it.
