Have you ever noticed that the people do not vote for government helpers to the president every 4 years? 

Democracy is a lie.

yeah, you’re absolutely right. There’s absolutely no democratic component to cabinet appointees at all. Pfft the OP should know better.

By the way this OP is harping on, its as if he thinks the constitution has some laughable madisonian style rule that cabinet appointees must be approved by a publically elected body through some sort of advise and consent clause.

What a trolling idiot, amiright?

The people don't get to select Cabinet helpers any more than they get to select the winner of the Democrat party presidential candidate.

It's all done with superdelegates. 

All the people can do is "approve" of the superdelegate's choice....which they failed to do in 2016.

Thank you for completely conceding the point.

Arguments are so much easier when you admit the false nonsense you’re spewing. Well done sir, it takes a brave man to admit he’s wrong!

The closest the people can get to selecting cabinet positions is through presidential elections every 4 years. The People have selected Trump's cabinet members for the next 4 years.

Fun fact: If the Congress never approves any cabinet appointee, all of the positions become "acting"
