I am wondering, does anyone even know how to run for president?
Do you know how to get your name on a ballot? Do you even know how impossible it is for a true candidate to run for office?
Is that ok? Should you not know this in a democracy?
Is the petition process for getting peoples names on a state ballot even free? Is it free in the sense that mafia type institutions on a state and
federal level do not interfere?
Im working as a petitoner. I had no idea how impossible it is. Death threats, criminal enforcement through violence, lost petition forms,
disqualifying nonsense when signing as a regular citizen, and so on.
How anyone thinks someone getting past this all is still a peoples choice is beyond me.
Does anyone even know how to run for office beyond some dinky local position?
Think about it. Who gets to run? Not you my fellow citizen of this democracy. Not a chance in hell.
You can get on a single ballot, maybe two, then you stop. The crazies are well shown so as to propose the idea that only lunatics are running if not
for the rockstar politicians.
You really think out of the entire country of MILLIONS, that only the trumps and clintons of the world are there as a valid voice of reason?
So why dont we see more underdogs? Clean people with no political ties and debts....who are smart and loyal citizens????
Would you even consider someone like that? Or do you want to WIN WIN WIN?
You think you are participating. Because you check a box of predetermined candidates....really?
You think this is a democracy? Ok. Try running for office as a smart honest person using THE SYSTEM.
Maybe before we worry about fixing the system, we should ask if its even broken. I see it working as intended. Flawlessly.
Its not a democraric system. We dont live in a democracy. We have something less noble.
So try it out. Hypothetically, See how far you think you would get if you ran for president. Then pick a random person who you think could pull it
off. Repeat the process in your mind, how much farther would they get.
You may see what I am getting at.
