I know this is a fantastical theoretical situation I am postulating out there, but I am just curious...
The current prospectus for 2012 presidential election looks like crap, and I really mean it.
Even with "alternative" choices, I believe it still smacks of "establishment", really...
What if somehow, the drones (i.e. us
) could get together via internet, phones, etc...), and pick a name.
Some generic name.
write that name down as their choice for President.
And I mean as many possible people write that exact name down.
And it wins the popular vote of every single state.
What would happen?
I realize that the "electoral college" is who really "elects" the president.
However, wouldn't that send a pretty important damn message to the powers that
the population is fed the -f- up with their tired, petty, crap.
Their tired, petty, candidates.
Their tired, petty campaigns.
Their tired, petty lobbyists.
Their tired billion dollar lying campaigns.
People would have to operate independent of selfish interest,
but isn't it time that we do that, for our own sakes???
Imagine the shock.
I will probably get flamed to hell and back for my
ideological, "never would work" idea, but I would relish
the pandemonium this would cause.
