Electoral College (Does a vote count?)

A lot of young people read a Diddy t-shirt and think that if they don’t vote a bullet will release from a chamber into there skull, this is false. Voting is an integral part of our political system but your vote is not the vote that cast our president, the Electoral College determines this. Each state has a body of electors that cast a vote for president, now some of these electors have made promises to vote for certain candidates but in the end it is there final say on who the president and vice will be. Don’t get me wrong our vote does count if it comes to ballots like in Bush vs. Gore, then we play a major factor but this is a rare instance. I have to agree with why not to go with a “popular vote” but I think a lot of our entertainers are confused by the whole political machine period. Your vote is important but in the end it really wont count, the electors for each state will make there decision based on there own feelings period. Politrix is a bitch huh?
