Nonetheless, although not the complete answer it does provide a framework. Where it may not be able to create change all by itself it can send a message to the powers that be. For the first time in history we have the capability of communicating with just about everyone in the country at virtually NO cost: The Internet.
We the people have the capability (if not the will) to hijack any election. With a sufficiently passionate internet campaign we could elect a write-in candidate of OUR chosing (not to minimize the difficulty in arriving at a concensus as to who that individual should be). We have two years to put it in place. Well?
You hit the nail on the head as far as the internet and elections go.
