THE ELECTORAL PROCESS
In the late summer of 1787, the Founding Fathers struggled to draft a solution that would satisfy the states of both larger and smaller populations regarding presidential elections. In hopes of satisfying all parties, the electoral college was offered as a solution. This compromise was reached whereby popular vote would determine what slate of party electors would meet on the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December to cast their choice for president. The most common selection method of electors is by state party conventions. In PA though, the presidential nominee for each party nominates and sends their list of electors to the PA Secretary of State. The electors for all states will meet in their state capitols on December 14 to cast their votes for president and vice-president. On January 6, in a joint session of Congress, the electoral votes will be accepted and verified. These details are derived from
Article II and Amendment XII of the Constitution.

OUR STAGGERING NATIONAL DEBT
In his article, "Will Georgia Halt the Radicals Revolution", Nov. 11, 2020, Pat Buchanan wrote, "LBJ's Great Society is manifest today in our staggering national debt". So let's look at some debt data. LBJ did increase government spending by 13%. Since Johnson, every president has increased the debt by at least 30%. In 1969, LBJ's last budget, the government collected more money than it spent: there was a surplus of $3.2 billion. The next time the government had a surplus was under Bill Clinton.
Ronald Reagan added $1.47 billion in deficits and almost doubled the national debt. He did that by reducing taxes on the wealthy and increasing the defense budget. George W. Bush increased government spending, more than any of the six presidents preceding him including LBJ, with tax cuts benefiting mainly the wealthy and increases in defense spending. Bush ran a deficit every year, increasing the debt by $1.35 trillion. Donald Trump ran a deficit of $2.47 trillion over his first 3 years in office. This was accomplished by tax cuts mainly for corporations and the wealthy and increases in defense spending.
We have a pattern here. Republican presidents increasing the debt by cutting taxes for corporations and the wealthy while also increasing defense spending. It is as if they are deliberately trying to bankrupt our nation. They said the tax cuts would pay for themselves, they did not, but social programs like the Great Society have.
