I've really never been into politics because when I was a child I saw how one (ones) with power were able to brainwash their followers and these followers were even paying a monthly dues just to stand out in the freezing weather against the man that actually was paying them their lively hood to make ends meet. What I figured out and hated that something was not in its true form of honesty representing those that were freezing their butts off at "yes" Christmas time. You see, it was the Christmas turkey (the trap actually, ever been called turkey in the military). So one word came to mind when I was in 4th grade, "GULLIBLE". Because of the word "gullible" I never once believed a vote for a sincere cause counted at all, therefore I drifted away from the political scene and never educated myself. Please explain how someone actually gets to the White House in Washing D.C.

Suck up to the right people, have no conscience, backstab when an opportunity comes. Basically you have to be a really bad person people like for some reason.

Basically the election process has been dead for quite some time. It has been replaced by a "selection" process that takes place on a country club golf course in Orange county California or a vacation retreat called Bohemian Grove. The selectors are usually from the Corporate Military Industrial complex, refereed to as neocons. The selection process is a business decision masquerading as politics for the benefit of the people that actually pay the bills.
The political process in America has become another type of entertainment theater for the taxpayers to enjoy. Some folks think they have a stake in the process but it's just a fancy illusion; complete with clowns, jokers and buffoons.

hope that helps.....

That's easy. A group of select elites disguised as the **electoral college choose a group of muppets for the voters to choose from.

These muppets work in the best interests of corporate oligarchies and Banksters and lie to voters that they do have voters best interests at heart.

Then, once elected, they renege on their promises to the voters and continue with their masters' agenda to erode the Constitution and install, through economic chaos (thanks to perpetual wars to enforce "freedom and democracy") the New World Order.

Both Democrats and Republicans are in on it and their main focus is the deconstruction of the 1st and 2nd amendments.

**The Electoral College is a process, not a place. The founding fathers established it in the Constitution as a compromise between election of the President by a vote in Congress and election of the President by a popular vote of qualified citizens

Are you from the US?

If not, I understand.

If so, have you been living in a cave?

No offense meant at all if you are from the US. I just can't imagine you not knowing.

Basically said person must be prepared to throw away all of their morals and bend over to allow elite oligarchs to shove as much mula up their behind as they would like and smile for the camera!

Afterwards they enjoy having their scripts written for them and sit back and observe the elite's controlled media brainwash the masses into "making the choice" so they can look to their flag with pride.

Voila you got yourself a president!

Have the majority of the Electoral College Votes from the house of Senate and Congress.

The popular vote is not worth diddilly squat if their elected representatives don't vote whom the people want.

You must secure the majority of the electoral votes, after which you will be escorted into a dark room with an altar where you must recite 10 Hail Satans, 8 Hail Iblis, 5 Hail Lokis, 3 Hail Hades, and 1 loud HAIL HYDRA!

You have to be wealthy....and even if everyone votes you.in.....the Electoral College has to vote you in with a majority....even if the average American....all of us....all or most votes for the same candidate.

So....

Rich, majority vote of citizens, and Electoral College majority...or you're not getting in...

Electoral Process in the United States


The electoral process--which includes the selection of candidates, the registration of voters, and the voting procedures--varies throughout the United States. Each state has the power to establish some of its own laws regarding voter requirements and the frequency of statewide elections. However, because the national government establishes federal election requirements, many of the states generally adopt the same rules and practices to reduce expenses and avoid the complexity of having two different systems

Selecting the Candidates

Political parties, which are made up of groups of voters who share similar political views, or philosophies, are an important feature of the American political system. Although there are a variety of minor political parties, there are two major ones — the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. Democrats and Republicans nominate most of the candidates who run for public office in the United States.

In most elections, each major party selects a candidate and supports him or her with money, advice, and publicity. Political campaigns increasingly use direct-mail fliers and television advertisements to present the candidates'positions to the electorate. In other words, campaigns let the electorate know how the candidates "stand on the issues." Because it is expensive to run a campaign, minor parties and independent candidates with smaller funds find it difficult to compete against the major party candidates for votes.

From the official site:



The meeting of the electors takes place on the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December after the presidential election. The electors meet in their respective states, where they cast their votes for President and Vice President on separate ballots.


The "voters" really have nothing to do with it, and neither does the November election.

It amazes me how very little most people know about this process.

Generally the point is about half the voters feel like they participated in something that they in fact had nothing to do with.

Here is the archived page for the Electoral College and how the President and the Vice president are elected... right from the source.

Well, step 1 is to proceed to the intersection of hwy 8 and hwy 1 in Rosedale, MS.

In the crossroads at midnight on Halloween, you sell your soul to the devil, not for a guitar and a talent for the blues, but for power and control.

Then you take a billion dollars and all the dirty laundry you can scavenge, and you blackmail, murder and shill your way to the top of one of the two parties.

You also should be a lawyer, and preferably a Yale grad, skull and bones a definite plus, because you have to be blessed by the other folk who sold their souls to satan.
