Let's repair this broken democracy

The front page article, "GOP seen holding on to House," (March 31), in The Day, made my stomach turn. The ability of any political party to rig the vote by redrawing House districts at the state level should be abolished by eliminating the concept of districts all together. The fact that Republicans maintained a 33-seat House majority in 2012 even though they got 1.4 million fewer votes than their Democratic opponents should never happen in a true democracy. And while we're at it, let us scrap the archaic Electoral College absurdity.

Hey guys, it's 2014, we have computers, we can actually count individual votes.
