Not the typical sarcastic and nearly humorous stuff we’ve come to expect from this blog. However, here is a random list of things I don’t understand about Presidential elections. Give it all the thought you feel it deserves…
Why people criticize wealthy candidates, when in fact most presidential candidates (and most presidents) have been wealthy;
Why we still use the electoral college system;
Why we have so many problems counting ballots;
Why we still have conventions;
Why we don’t vote online;
Why we call the combined infomercial/shouting matches “debates;”
How it’s possible for every election to be called the most important election of my lifetime.
Oh well. Better people (and worse people) than I haven’t been able to figure out why we make it so complicated. In the meantime, vote early and vote often.
