The Dems care about majority when it suits them, i.e. the popular vote. The majority of people don't make minimum wage, but let's more than double it for the few that do. The majority of people have an ID that can easily be used at the polls, but lets not mandate that for the 6% that dont.
I was taught as a kid - probably a thousand times - you vote because every vote counts. Looking at it objectively, the electoral college prevents the possibility of every vote counting. In Maryland, where I vote, it's probably more than 3 quarters Democrats, so there's literally zero chance that my vote for President in the general election will count. And the same thing for a Republican voting in a heavily Republican state - his/her/it's (jk) vote means nothing. If my logic there is flawed, please let me know why.
