Electoral College Obsolete?

I hear many people saying the electoral college should be abolished. I think this just shows that they don't understand the purpose of it.

The electoral college system was installed to give a bit more voting power to the geographical majority of the country. When we voted by popular vote only, the election was determined by the population centers of the nation. Today, that would mean that the East coast states and California would always get their way, and the people in Kansas and Missouri would just have to stand by and watch. By abolishing the electoral college, we as a country would be saying that opinions of only the big population states is important. I don't think this will happen. I pray this does not happen!
