On one of the many motorcycle trips my wife and I took, we once were behind a group of long haul truckers talking to each other on their CB radios. We were listening in and one of them was trying to explain the Electoral College to the others. While he didn't know exactly where the college was he was pretty sure it was near Washington DC and that politicians attended it and were involved with the election and who won. There were a number of ideas batted around but in the end all of them decided it was just a place where the rich people could afford to send their kids so they could eventually get into politics. They then went back to how they couldn't get profitable loads, whether it was better to be independent or work for a trucking company and what sort of things they saw going on in passing 4 wheelers.
