I have only one positive thing to say about Pence. He's better than Trump.

Can you source Aristotle on this subject?

Are you sure it's even established that people actually vote in their own best interest?
Read up on James Madison's reasoning for The Senate

That's without stating that obviously only land owning white males could even vote

That was uncalled for. For once I thought Frown was being quite polite towards you.

Well, you see, when the president does it, it's no longer illegal - Richard Nixon.
Now they're sending hampers to Russia???

You have the electoral college which exists partially for the same reason

The "state representation" line is not the whole story, just like slavery wasn't a "state's rights" issue

If I wasn't on my phone Id give you what Aristotle said directly

The populace as a whole does vote in its own economic self interest over time

He said this as a matter of fact, not as good or bad, and history has proven him correct

Consider that the last 20+ years worth of Presedential elections would have been dominated by Democrats if our system was actually democratic

But it isn't, and it wasn't meant to be

In the current system I guess I prefer it. Prevents one random president doing a lot of awful things.
