Does Our Vote Really Matter?
by Michael Long
Al Gore was elected President of the United States by the American people. Yet Bush won based on the electoral college.
In this election we find out that the real power of the vote goes to "superdelegates" who supposedly will represent the interests of the average voter.
Will there be an election on that? Can I vote for or against the electoral college and superdelegates? I would much rather take part in that election.
But, I guess not. I'll just vote for who I like, and be thankful that I can rely on such wise and honest men in politics to decide who we ignorant peasants really want to be President. Oh, and lets not forget the "Supreme" Court.
Wasn't America supposed to be a democracy or something?
