NOW it’s official!

Contrary to what some idiot on a talk show (or Al Gore) may tell you, the people of the United States do not elect their President; they choose electors for their State, and the several States use the electors to choose our President. This system was designed by the Founding Fathers, to ensure that the smaller States would have parity with the larger ones. In this clip, a joint session of the legislative branch, presided over by the President of the Senate, alongside the Speaker of the House of Representatives, confirms the results of the electoral vote, thus making the decision official.

Complain about it if you want, but in two and a quarter centuries, we've never had a coup.

God bless America. HOO-rah!
