W45 – Chute libre
I’m falling. Yep, that happened this week.. Picture taken from The Stranger’s article “We’re Fucked” published on Nov 10th. Can someone explain to me why the electoral college is necessary in the USA please? I just cannot wrap my head around the idea that THE PEOPLE elected Hillary Clinton and even so, Donald trump becomes president. How is that democracy? I just wonder how many Americans do not vote because they feel their vote won’t make a change in the state they are to win the electoral college votes.. As I shared my feelings about the results of the election, one of my dear friend Daysha sent me an article from Slate explaining why “The electoral college is an instrument of white supremacy and sexist”.
I suppose i am really struggling with the INDIRECT suffrage because i have had the right to vote DIRECTLY for the French president since i am 18yo.
What do you think of The Electoral College ?
