I became involved in politics in 2003 because of my outrage over the Bush doctrine and as a result have observed something over the subsequent years ... Outrage while a great motivator to take action is a terrible tool for convincing anyone to change their mind. I sense a little outrage in your post.
I assume you and I both agree that the Electoral College should be eliminated. However I would disagree that voting does not count. I live in Indiana a Red state and the majority of the time I vote for Blue candidates for President. In 2008 it obviously counted because the state went Blue, but most of the time it doesn't and even then I feel my vote counts.
This year President Obama for instance won convincingly in electoral votes, but from a political point of view he would be in a weaker position if he had not also won the popular vote. Perhaps if more folks like you would have voted he would not have won the latter.
Bottom line you should always vote if you have an opinion and you obviously do.
