No wonder politicians can get away with saying and doing some of the absurd things they do. Almost half the country is clueless and ignorant. How is this possible is this day of 24/7 media?

‘Obamacare’ Poll Finds 42% of Americans Unaware It’s Law

I really don't like the phrase "We the people" anymore. "We the people" routinely prove themselves to be fools.

At the time the Constitution was drafted, "We the people" did not include everyone over 18 with a pulse.

Because only land owners we allowed to vote. Only those with "skin in the game" chose who represented them.

Also, the Electoral college was still being used as designed. Each district chose a delegate and that delegate voted according to their districts majority. Now we have "Winner takes all" states. Those districts that voted but lost by state majority are NOT REPRESENTED in the electoral college vote. This is barely different from the popular vote democracy that founders worked so hard to avoid.
