Discussion: There are 8 Discussion Questions on Canvas, basically one bi-weekly. These are to be answered in roughly 300 words. They are your thoughts (after reviewing the material). Once an initial answer is posted, you will have access to others’ posts. Please reply to at least one other student’s post with a follow-up question, additional thought, disagreement, etc. Please respond if I ask you a question in your thread. For each discussion question, you will get 12 points for the initial post of adequate size and thought and 6 points for adequate replies. If you feel that you’d like to pad your grade, replying to your replies will certainly be noted if there are ever those “Can you round my 89.1% to a 90%?” questions. Initial posts are due on Fridays, all responses are due by Sundays.
Choose one of the pages from this module to write about (Electoral College & Money). Ask any questions you have, share your thoughts, discuss your insecurities.
To get you started. Did you know money wasn’t real? Did you know that that was how we elected the president? Do you like it? Did you know that the founders thought that the lay people weren’t that intelligent, so they used the EC as a buffer between the ignorant masses and the “enlightened” electors…? Ever seen the national debt clock? Did you check out some of its features? Were you shocked at all?
