Barrack Obama HAS NOT been elected President of the United States of America.
American voters DO NOT decide who will be President of the United States of America.
It is the Electoral College that elects the President. Since The United States Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787, a President has always been picked by Electoral votes, not the citizen's votes. It is sheer ignorance to believe otherwise.
Wikipedia.org explains easily enough that a Junior High School kid can understand, just how our system of picking a President has always worked, "The United States is the only current example of an indirectly elected executive president, with an electoral college comprising electors representing the 50 states and one federal district."
"The Electoral College consists of the popularly elected representatives who formally select the President and Vice President of the United States; since 1964 the electoral college has had 538 electors. In 2008, it will make this selection on December 15."
"Rather than directly voting for the President and Vice President, United States citizens cast votes for electors. Electors are technically free to vote for anyone eligible to be President."
This has been the Supreme Law of our Country for over 200 years! Now, why don't our politicians and major newscasters know that? Could it be that they do know it and just don't want the citizens to know?
-I swear you Americans are the only people that don't or dont want to know this! even people in russia know about this government!
