How Math And Greed Elect A 19 Year Old Prez

Today sees the second issue of Prez released. And a break down of how exactly a YouTube star got elected President Of The United States.

Recently, Veep gave viewers a sum that saw two Presidential candidates tied in the electorial college, with a tied House behind it and the possibility that the current Vice President would be granted the position of President – despite never being voted into the position.

Prez doesn't take it that far and keeps with the electoral colleges. And even though "Corndog Girl" Ross got just one electoral college vote, those electoral representatives ave a chance to get whatever they want out of the main two candidates in return for their vote.


Pork belly politics at its best, Or, in thi case panda belly politics.


And so we have a state of extreme greed, where each electred representative tries to screw the main guys for as much as they can get for personal political gain. And so more and more vote for Ross in order to be bought off and switch their vote at a later date.

Of course in a world in which the frontrunner for the Republican Party Presidential candidate is Donald Trump and the frotnrunner for the Labour Party Prime Ministerial candidate is Jeremy Corbyn, for similar but opposite political reasons, all of this seems far too likely…
