The voting system ( or scam ) seems to imply that "we, the people" are in control via a democratic system here in the good 'ol US of A : the
reality is, however, that we may cast our vote, but we do not elect- Get it ?
The President/V.P. are "Selected" and "Elected" via those in power and "Electorial College". Interestingly enough, I personally have never
known of one person by name who is a member of this "Electorial College", have you? We never get to nominate or elect them, do we? Why is such an
archacic system still in force in this day and age? We certainly know that the system is corrupted and manipulated, so giving us the true power of
our votes directly should be a viable concept for the 21st Century, if we truly believe in a "Democracy".
By the Way, Democracy is derived from "demos" in Latin , meaning mob rule. We, the proletarieat, do not rule : the money does, and it votes
"I pledge allegence to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands" ! The USA was never really set up to be
a Democracy, but a Republic. "We, the people" work for the Machine at its' pleasure, it does not work for ours. It is nothing less than a gross
misconception that this government at all reflects our rights, privelidges or views. Certainly, in the current Administration, that is indeed the
case, in spades!
If our votes really could count in a Presidental election, and "we,the people" really had the value and virtue of the power of our votes in a real
plebescite election, it would somehow become illegal !
Contrary to the popular belief of most of the American people, we do not elect the President ; futhermore, we never have ! Our votes only count in
the lesser elections ( gubernatorial, municipal and on ).
Regardless of which side of any political camp or spectrum that you may subscribe to, these things here are FACTS! This is the way it really is.
