In America, atheists are still in the closet

Apr 11, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Spiked

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

That's okay, Packy: people in Britain don't consider you to be a real 'citizen' anyway.

It does not mean we don't vote, SCrotumLicker.
You understand now?
US citizens vote for POTUS indirectly.
UK subjects: do not get any vote for head of state at all ever.
Close.

Historically, each State legislature was responsible for naming their electors and sending them off to vote. Over time, most states have put laws in place to ensure that these electors vote in accordance with the majority vote of the people, typically in a winner take all format (note: most, not all).

Originally, the Senate was also elected by each state's legislature and not by popular vote.

The original theory behind the indirect election was that the House would be a representation of the people, and the Senate would be a more deliberative body representing the States' interests.

The President and Vice President were the executives of a federation of independent states and represented these states on the international stage.

The electoral college still actually votes for the President and Veep separately.

Why do you refuse to dig below the surface of pomp and ceremony? Is it perhaps because you know your argument is ludicrous?

Yeah but look what you have to "consider" with.
