The other day I was approached by a close friend who began to tell him how are her 10th grader was being thought at the local public highschool that general American vote does not count and that there is no reason to vote due to the electoral college. What shocked me even more was the fact that she began to question the value of a vote herself.
Look I know that it has been a long time since some people took a Civics or American Government course but just because a teacher said so… doesn’t make it so. I decided I would breakout my college book on American Government and explain to my friend how exactly the electoral college and voting for that matter works. After somewhat of a debate I belive I convinced her that his teacher was WRONG.
