Faking a Mandate
Michael Arnovitz

Michael — I enjoyed your prose and storytelling very much. I disagree with your interpretation of events across the chronology. How can the “something commanded” (Latin — mandatum) be so (one way or another) when nearly half the eligible voters fail to participate? How can much (one way or another) be concluded from that?

The electoral college is the wise option, not a national popular election.

I think it is time to stop whinging. Save the energy to oppose unconstitutional proposals when, or if, they arise.

Like what you read? Give James Monaco a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
