If you read the first installment of this article, you will recall that we discussed the real reasons for the American Revolution and the true charactor of the Founding Fathers who initiated that Movement. We also talked about the fact that those same founders also felt they; as the Elite Class; had the right to determine the course of the nation in perpetuity. So today we will discuss the nature of our Electoral process and look behind the facade of freedom that hides the true nature and purpose of the Electoral College. A most insideous institution? Or a miracle of American Political Thought? How do you get in? What does it do? Is the Electoral College a danger to the American people and is there a better way? Let’s begin with a simple question; with a simple but perplexing answer. What is the Electoral College?……………………………………………. Oh; wait till you hear this.

Have you ever tried to explain what it is Liberals want to a Conservative. I have had many of these conversations and the result is always the same. I tell them that no American should have to sleep on the street and they tell me that not everyone can be rich. I tell them that minimum wage is not enough to live on and they tell me you can’t expect to make a hundred thousand dollars a year right out of high school.

And no matter the evidence I produce to the contrary, they say “Big Business creates jobs” like if they say it enough it will be true. I say everyone has a right to the American Dream and they tell me that the American Dream is different for everyone. But is it? Is the American Dream different for everyone or just for the Wealthy. Well, we are the 99% and most of us have the same dream. But getting the Conservatives to understand much less support that dream is like butting your head against a brick wall. It doesn’t move. So what is the American Dream? Why don’t conservatives get it? Or perhaps more to the point; why won’t they admit they get it and stop accusing us of wanting to be like them?
