A trip into American culture 1 8, 10:00am


True enough. At the time I wrote that, I knew much less about how that mess of an electoral system (doesn't) work, and how despite hundreds of millions of people showing to proudly cast their votes, only a few handfuls of privileged people ("the Electors") in the US actually get to vote for a president.

...Why does ANYONE vote in the USA at all, ever? Is it just massive ignorance in the total lack of purpose it serves?
