      What this article explains is that even though a candidate might have a larger number of votes, this candidate might not end up being selected by the delegates, which is quite true since each state has a different number of delegates. However, however, this is a different, by all means, quite different, election and selection. There is no question about it.

      The ones running for the presidency are hand selected by the 1% who run this country. Then they go out and pretend they are in opposition against each other. It's only just a show so the stupid Americans will think they have a choice in the matter.
