    The election system is full of errors, and you miss the point of a secret ballot, and you miss what the Framers were trying to accomplish when they designed the Constitution.

    The Declaration of Independence established a democratic nation. The Constitution is merely a system created in an effort to implement the goals of the Declaration of Independence. Elections were chosen because they had no other choice in that day.

    But that does not mean the elections are a good thing. History has proven that there are not a good thing.

    But if you want to ignore history and cling to some vague romantic dream of a nation that never was, then that is your right, but the election system did not give you that right and it does not protect it.

    Might and Right are always fighting, in our youth it seems exciting. Right is always nearly winning, Might can hardly keep from grinning.
