1. If you haven't already..don't forget to vote today! I already voted, I find absentee ballots way easier. I like to sit with the ballot and research the canidates and the issues a little bit. I could talk about some of them here, but not really looking for crazy people arguing with me so I won't :)
My husband keeps talking about how he hates the electoral college. I personally didn't really get what the benefits of it were and why our founding fathers thought it was such a good idea, but once I did a little research it really does make a lot of sense and I found myself defending it to my husband.
Benefits of the electoral college according to the websites I looked at include giving the minorites more of a voice, making canidates appeal to a wider audience not just trying to get a majority vote which would mean they could potentially ignore lower populated areas and minorites. It is also weighted somewhat in favor of rural areas, which is hard to see when my state only has 3 electoral votes and others have twenty and thirty some.
You can find it explained HERE and HERE
2. I have been on a bit of a kombucha kick lately, especially kombucha with chia seeds in it. I am not really a fan of the price of it though so I ration it out a little. It is supposed to have great health benefits which I guess I haven't bothered to look up yet. I do know I have been feeling really great lately. Coincidence?
Do you like the electoral college?
Do you know you are not really voting for the future president, but just some elector that says he will vote for canidate such and such but he could really vote for the other guy?
Are you a fan of kombucha?
