Someone please explain why any of this matters...Submitted by LastAmericanStanding on Wed, 10/15/2008 - 12:20
Call it ignorance.. but if the presidential election is decided by the electoral colleges... isn't his all a moot point?
The debates... the polls... the election... all of it. Isn't it just a sham to make the 'voting public' feel like they have a say in who becomes president?
I've never gotten the full story of the electoral vote but I know that you can't be president without it. The public campaign is little more than a dog-and-pony show (very expensive one) to introduce personalities to the voters but they don't actually get to pick who sits in the white house, do they?
C'mon.. Someone smarter than me give us an answer.
Let's nail down this 'electoral college' thing once and for all.
