Save Us from the Voters

Nobody asked but …

Even worse than the if-you-don’t-vote crowd are the it’s-your-duty bunch.  And then you have the voting-should-be-compulsory mavens (and what a fine premise for the land of the free [irony alert]!)  Acknowledging that any state or local vote is irrelevent to countrywide representation, here is what you get:

— 1 vote every 4 years for POTUS,
— 1 vote every 2 years for HOROTUS, and
— 2 votes every 6 years for SOTUS.

That’s it!  As POTUS may say, “that’s a bad deal for us.”  People say that voters are ignorant.  The above calculus confirms that, but what kind of education would fix this stupidity?
