The United States of Compromise

A slight change of pace, I just want to write a quick post on United States’ history, spurred on by this article, but fuelled by an all too common refrain.

The Electoral College

“The Electoral College, designed to protect America from the election of a self-interested demagogue as its leader”

I’m sure we’ve all heard some reiteration of this point. The problem is, this isn’t what the electoral college was “designed” to do.

Well, compromise after this part.

The Senate

I like history and thinking about freedom. I have a background in International Relations, Strategic Studies and I work for the Military Industrial Complex
