Electoral College

It is a misunderstanding that U.S. Citizens vote for the president. We do not. The Electoral Colleges vote for the president. The Popular Vote is rarely used to satisfy a tie within the Electoral College vote. The "people" are not truly represented by the Electoral College.

A good example of how broken this is would be to watch the Re-Election of Bush Jr in 2004 where multiple "colleges" deferred their vote to another state cascading multiples into Texas which quite handily voted for re-election of Bush Jr.

Since I am a layman and not a Lawyer trained in all the legal loopholes used with common words and their context I will get my coat.
