A bill of rights was certainly one concern of the Anti-Federalists, but there were many others. I believe history has proven that their prescient arguments had incredible weight to them...

Once again, thank you for all of your posts. My students appreciated not only an explanation of the process, but also how divided American opinion is on the method. Mind you, they're still understandably confused!

You can always assuage them by explaining that most Americans have no idea what electors are, an enormous majority has no idea how the system was supposed to work (or how it's currently used), and most don't give a damn about anything of political or historical importance.

We do know much about what games are on television tonight, what Kim Kardashian likes to wear, and that new rap song by whichever "artist" happens to be the flavor of the month...

Pardon me if already mentioned, but the original intent was that
a) there were to be no parties and
b) no tickets
There were to be solo candidates, and the one the most electors voted for became president, the penultimate became vice president. Somehow this rationality got screwed up in short order.

The private bank (Federal Reserve is as governemental as Federal Express), not being congress, has no power to set the value of money. Clearly this is their main function, beyond the scam of loan-sharking fake money, all unconstitutional.
