Presidential Fraud

It matters not your conversion
the race for president is but a diversion.
The Senate and Congress are the races to watch.
These are the ones who love to debauch.
Theirs is the vote that represents you.
They are the ones who fill the president's shoe.
"For the Republic for which it stands"
Your Presidential  election is in their hands.
You gave your vote to these your elected.
The system's corrupt .... it is ... infected. 
A Democratic Republic is what we are.
We've hung our nation on a misguided star.
Our votes elect the electoral college.
Your president's elected by its lack of knowledge.
He's but a figurehead with limited power.
He gets the blame when their decisions turn sour.
Constitutional law gives them your vote.
"We the people" have bought a pig in a poke.

Author's Notes:
Contrary to popular opinion, the United States is not a Democracy.  We are a Democratic Republic.  This means we elect the officials who make our decisions for us.  The people elect the electoral college.  The electoral college elects the President of the United States and .... the electoral college does not have to cast their vote in the direction their own voters tell them to cast it.  This has been done in the past.   Watch who you put in the House of Representatives and who you put in the Senate.  Yes, the President has power, but he is far from in this alone.  The House and the Senate are the ones who make the decisions on what to do.  He says, "yes, or no", but they can override him with a simple vote.  Watch out for who you vote for ... other than the President.
They say who you vote for, for President... not you.
Can you ... trust them?

I agree; I think we are sheep, easily led so long as the grass seems green, or greener over there. or wait ! over here.

Look at the president how he has... But, they are such good magician with slight of hand, distracting. They use

the media to hype the presidential election so everyone is tired of the process when it come to their own selection.

I am concerned for the flock and wondering when we will be led to slaughter.

The thing that scares me the most is the President's power to just do the Executive Order and IT IS LAW !!!!

Such a well produced point of view and whilst I know not too much of your electoral system -- I know a good write when I see one and I'm looking at one right now -- good work --

Makes you wonder why the senate races aren't as big a deal as the presidential races... Then again people never watch the important details~

Very informal~

It seems to matter little what particular system any country has they all have people in the background who make the real decisions. We're all screwed one way ot the other. I like your political pieces Gene.

If what you say is true....

Then there's nothing we can do


As voters, we make our demands

But it's out of our hands


Therefore, we're stuck with this crew!
