Many Americans suffer from a lack of understanding of both how our "System of Democracy works", and more importantly how it has greatly failed to work. That understanding requires a highly technical mathematical comprehension - believe it or not. And at the heart of the failure is the Replicant party and an analysis made by one its desiciples now defunct who showed precisely how it was easy for the party to mathematically manipulate the Electoral College vote. See here: Electoral College Surprisingly Vulnerable Excerpt: We should all be concerned about how elections are held in our country because it is a fundamental aspect of a Workably Fair Democracy. We could take days, months and years discussing this matter regarding the Electoral College as indicated above. And it is a serious matter because the EC is at the heart of electing the Head of Government in our True Democracy. As serious as the ability of we-the-people to elect those who represent us in Congress. Manipulating the Popular Vote is simply not acceptable, and I would dearly like to see a Supreme Court argumentation that decided otherwise. (Given the mathematical evidence of said manipulation.) We Yanks think all is Right in LaLaLand on the Potomac - but why? Because to argue that it is not and that it has serious voting-defects is somehow "unAmerican". But the fact of the matter remains, the Electoral College can be employed to manipulate the popular-vote electing the PotUS. The site connected above gives a highly technical description of EC-vote manipulation. That description is technically correct but barely understandable to most Americans who don't have a Doctorate in Mathematics. Like you, perhaps, I am one of those. But, that does not make the argument wrong. Just a bit difficult to understand. Moreover, since it is apparently correct, it scares-the-hell-out-of-me ... !
