The Electoral College is one of the few bastions that preserves what was once a proper state system. The fact that our government has grown in scope and power should not cause us to abandon the entire concept.

I believe autonomy goes in this order:

People >> Local Government >> States >> Federal Government

The average person sees it the exact opposite. Your position is a mixture, where state supercedes the people and the local communities and the federal government.
I fail to see how the electoral college does anything to negate your hierarchy. It's one of the few cornerstones left that retains the division between state and federal levels.
