George, you come of as a bit paranoid.
For better or worse, there are and never have been rules about how informed a voter should be. Nor how mentally stable a president needs to be.
Every citizen is allowed their say, not just the 'elites'. It wasn't that long ago that politicians (on either side) were upset at how few people were voting.
It is my opinion that we have given presidents and political parties too much power. The people should be able to care for themselves with government support and not directives.
