How does the concept of the Electoral College look through the lens of sphere sovereignty? By reinforcing the separate and balanced powers that form the bedrock of the American government, I think this system stacks up quite well and is worth preserving.
It is hard for me to fathom the USA is a nation with shopping aisles full of shampoo and cereal choices, yet we insist that only two political parties can produce qualified presidential candidates. Every four years we are even farther from Lincoln or Roosevelt, and unsolved problems from president’s past continue to compound, requiring even more complexity to solve. Adding an additional voice to the conversation is necessary.
Whether it’s a family conversation around the dinner table or a quick chat over coffee after church, tensions around political views among believers has the potential to escalate quickly, causing many to shy away from the conversation altogether.

This is the first presidential election I get to vote in. Which is a pretty cool opportunity and duty that Americans carry. But despite my ignorance, there is one thing I have been good at this election season: mudslinging.
