Yeah Jo Jo it can go both ways, and that does void my arguments. I don't think the inefficiencies are worth such minor benefits in the event of oppressive government. Since the creation of efficient infrastructure I've seen local control as redundant. With the right checks and balances I don't think its a problem, isn't that what the founding fathers were for? Elected representation with laws attempting to prevent tyranny and tyranny of the majority.
With the removal of electoral colleges you would also need to introduce run off voting for the head of state election, that way it would help balance power between large population "red and blue states", also as many candidates could run as they wanted to, that may give you more viable choices between a giant douche and a turd sandwich.
