Section 1 - The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of Four Years, and together with the Vice President, chosen for the same term, be elected, as follows:
Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress; but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.
The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom one at least shall not be an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves. And they shall make a List of all the Persons voted for, and the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of Government of the United States.............
The above excerpt from the U.S. Constitution clearly defines the difference between the private and public sectors of government, when it states in paragraph 2: “but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.” Offices of “Trust” are elected officials, and offices of “Profit” are people who work for the government. It says that nobody in government should either run an election or vote in one. It is a major conflict of interest for government to be running and voting in elections.
