NEWS ALERT: Founding Fathers Rigged the Democratic System

It was revealed today that the Founding Fathers manipulated the system for electing a President through the establishment of a Byzantine electoral process that shut voters out.

Known as the "Electoral System," the process set up by the authors of the Constitution involves a corrupt, anti-democratic process that ignores the popular vote and instead requires states to send delegates to the "Electoral College." The process is so rigged that someone could win the presidency who did not receive a majority of the popular vote.

Never mind.
