As tempting as it would be to complain about everyone constantly complaining, I'll just say this... Stop whining and put forth a good idea. I wish
this thread to be about ideas on how we can fix our political mess that we're in.
Let's start with this... After just watching, for the third time, the video of the tv pundit getting all mad about our bought and paid for congress i
propose a new way of dealing with elections.
A) candidates must apply for federal money, and all get the same amount. Naturally we would have to devise some fair criteria by which to approve
candidates for the money. Corporations CANNOT donate to candidates, if you can't die, you can't vote.
B) no more of this year long or more campaign nonsense. if politicians rare campaigning, they aren't doing their jobs for which they were elected in
the first place. 4-6 weeks max sounds about right.
C) abolish the electoral college. It was a good idea in the past. Today, it's out dated and unnecessary.
D) if any tv channel decides to hold a public debate, no candidate can be excluded, and all should get as equal time as possible. Of course this is a
tough one, but we can get close.
Now let's hear some more ideas and debate them properly. Please rip my ideas apart, and help me to refine them. Just remember we are all in this
together, conservative liberals middle of the road types, we all pay taxes, we all want to be safe, and we all want our families to prosper, so why
not work together?
