Even before the suspect materials and hang chad issues at the voting both, the electoral college has always been this “thing.”
We heard about it in elementary social studies. We heard about it in high school civic lessons. But we never knew just who these ‘college students’ were.
What we did know however, is that the final answer and say as to who the president of the United States of America would be was ultimately decided by the people of this “college.”
In 2016 now more than ever, were are really getting a
hands off hands on lesson about the power of these 538 people. After all the debates and at the end of the literal day, this “college” decides who runs the country.
Despite the fact that former first lady, (slash) Secretary of State, (slash) now) former democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clint won the election by popular vote (meaning: the tally of yours and my vote),
…the electoral college decided that Donald Trump should be our president.
I don’t know about you, but I’m done voting in America. And if you’re anything smart and want something done about that old ancient “electoral college” political processes overriding our collective decision on deciding who WE want to run the country, you would to.
I believe that if enough American people sanction and boycott voting collectively, we could get rid of this electoral college and force them to meet our demands to put the power back into our hands.
Let me cut to the chase of this process that leads us all on a wild goose one on election day.
