“So when you’re having one of those swell elections that you like so much…on that day I will be doing essentially the same as you…the only difference is when I get done masturbating I’ll have a little something to show for it.” -George Carlin
In the first segment, we briefly discuss Kal Molinet’s recent interview with Gary Johnson and begin to define the terms that will be used throughout the broadcast; namely, “popularly elected,” “electorate,” “elector,” and “Electoral College.”
In the second segment, we tell you exactly how government officials gain their positions constitutionally in each of the three branches and begin to talk about the Electoral College–more specifically, why it was initially put into the Constitution, how it works, etc.
The third segment is where things really get interesting–it is when we begin to expose this deception for what it is. The most significant being Texas Election Code which states that electors choose the President on the first Monday after the Second Wednesday in DECEMBER–yes, DECEMBER (link below). So, what’s the point of the General Election, then?
In the final segment, a listener, Paul, calls in to provide an interesting theory, and we conclude the show with the most important points. Namely:
- Unless you’re an ELECTOR (and, if you’re reading this, you aren’t), you have no say whatsoever in who is elected as President.
- There is no reason for the Presidential debates to be televised to American voters. The only people who “need” convincing are the electors, since they are the ones making the decision anyways.
- If political libertarians and anarchists HAVE to participate in the whole “infiltrate the State and reform” routine, their best bet is to become an elector. Grassroots Presidential campaigns are completely ineffective, whereas if these individuals focused on becoming an elector, they could ACTUALLY CHOOSE who the next President is.
- Last but not least, the Presidential election is NOT democratic, nor was it ever intended to be.
