Sea Change Radio

In a lit­tle over 10 weeks, every Amer­i­can cit­i­zen will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to have their vote count­ed to either elect a new pres­i­dent or to keep the cur­rent pres­i­dent in place. Or that’s what’s sup­posed to hap­pen in the­o­ry, any­way. In real­i­ty, the prin­ci­ple of one per­son, one vote” is vio­lat­ed in Amer­i­can elec­toral prac­tices. This week on Sea Change Radio, we talk to polit­i­cal writer John Stoehr of The Edi­to­r­i­al Board about the upcom­ing Amer­i­can pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, and about the gross inequities built into the elec­toral col­lege sys­tem. We also dis­cuss whether the goal of uni­fy­ing the coun­try should take a back­seat to advanc­ing truth, jus­tice, and equi­ty. And we con­tem­plate what Don­ald Trump’s end game is for this elec­tion — is he tru­ly dri­ven by a desire to lead the coun­try for four more years, or is he most­ly just think­ing being pres­i­dent is the best way to stay out of prison?
