I only voted today to have bitching rights later…

Honestly… in presidential elections, I have a history of flat out refusing to go near a polling place.  Why?  Because I know how the system works.  The popular vote — OUR VOTE — plain and simple does not count in the election.  “We The People” do not decide who becomes president, the Electoral College does.  While opinions are split as to whether or not this process should continue, more and more amendments have been introduced in Congress over the years in an attempt to abolish this election step and let the popular vote be the decision-maker.  While no proposal has obviously ever successfully passed both houses, I think within the next four years, those of us against the process will be in for a pleasant surprise.

Ah, my love Brandon had the same idea I did…

🙂  BUT—I still did.  Can’t complain now — actually I can, when my canditate fails the country (and myself) miserably once again.  Some little itch tells me however that I’d say…. within the next 3 cycles (12 years), the entire U.S. Government is in for a major upheaval, and when the dust has settled, we will emerge a new nation more at terms with Socialism.
