It would be nice if, as a country, we could recognize that our
literacy rate is no longer in the single digits, thus the electoral
college form of voting is long obsolete.  The original idea being that
literacy was so low that by using an electoral college, it increased
the odds that the people who get to vote for president can read.

Whereas Cascadia, if it were an independent country, would be the 20th
largest economy in the world.  And it's not like we have a whole lot
politically, culturally or economically in common with those bozos in
Montréal and Washington.  It would be better if we weren't constantly
looking at each other like the other is a useless, dead weight
dragging us down.  Maybe it's better if we team up with Washington and
lower BC to secede and become Cascadia in the short and long term.
