    I agree there is no need to change it. And in fact there is no way to change it-Congress would have to start the ball rolling, and the EC is the first line of defense against a multiple party system, so you would see a true bipartisan movement against it.

    The second line of defense are the people who actually pay for elections. They stand to lose a great deal for zero gain for a multi-party system.

    We have a system which has been successfully transferring power for over two centuries. You don't mess with what works.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.
