6. That might have occurred to the framers.



But they probably decided if the voters are stupid enough to elect a complete moron then they deserve what they asked for.


Good cartoon though. :thumbsup: :hi: :thumbsup:

7. that is why the founders put in that...
Senators were voted in by the state legislatures and that the President and VP were by electoral college,...but the morons eventually got the Constitution changed over the decades and now they can elect their peers.
