Electoral College Vote – Why


In a previous post, Right to the Moon Alice I was asked a question. That question, “January 10, 2017 at 6:22 pm

“How could we have voted this monster into office?!!”

To answer this we would have to go back in history to our founding fathers whom are responsible for drafting that bill and placing certain people in a special group to decide who will actually get into office. I’ve blogged about this before and this is one of the things we learn in history class, provided the teacher is good.

The Electoral College was placed in the event that we the citizens of the United States were viewed as dumb and ignorant to place a person in office.

There are augments for both sides of the coin, perhaps they had reason to do so and this Jay Leno video gives enlightenment to that one aspect as to why.

So, if one of your friends or relatives has the same question, comfort them by saying, “WE DIDN’T” put this creature in office, the Electoral College did.

    1. I was one told to never assume, a lesson well learned in my younger days. A post while back entitle, “What is a Good Title” I stated this, “.” If I do vote so that they can see their popularity votes increase then I have a choice of voting for the Devil or the Devil’s relations. After all the Electoral votes are the ones that really matter.”
