US can be a true democracy and do away with electoral college

In this day and age of technology we should be able to do away with this goofy electoral college system and have a true democracy. This means EACH citizen's vote is given equal weight! What a concept. I mean wasn't that the intent of our forefathers to begin with? We would no longer have those anomalies where a candidate wins the popular vote but loses the election. How does that even make sense?
I'm sure there would be bitter opposition from politicians on doing away with the electoral college.
But I think it's time the U.S. becomes the democracy it was intended to be. And I think this would cause more people to get out and vote because now your vote actually counts.
