The Electoral College: a lesson in anti-democracy

Many workers don't understand the Electoral College system by which the president of the US country is elected. It's a very undemocratic system, just like the 2 senators per state no matter what the population. It's all designed to weaken the influence of the working class in the political process while ensuring that either way it goes, the rich folks get their guy in.  Coupled with the fact that the capitalists have two parties and workers have no party, our actual voice in this process is extremely muted.
