I have a very long list of things that I would want to change inn politics but I would like to see what this community thinks!?
I'd like to see an end to the two party system. It does not serve the people adequately. There are so many other shade of political affiliation that needs to be represented. We need to end gerrymandering. We need shorter election seasons. We need to get big money and private influence out of politics, let campaigns be run with tax money, spending limits, and total transparency. We need to end the electoral college, one person one vote. Corporations are not people and should not have a vote. Lobbyists should be banned. Congress needs a heck of a pay cut and total transparency of all donations.
I'd like to see a lot of changes, but given this forum, how about the Christian requirement. Come on, I'm pretty sure some of our former presidents weren't true believers, but they had to decieve from the get go in order to get elected. I want my politicians to make decisions based on their moral judgments based on experience and not on a book written about some invisible guy in the sky eons ago.
Thank you for the comments! I can see that we all basically want similar things, it is my feeling that most Americans feel the same way deep down. The problem is the citizenry doesn't pay attention to what is going on and doesn't search for alternative news. Our news as well as our elections are bought and paid for! Also @Jlangston70, I agree mostly with you about the likely hood that nothing will change but alas that's only true if we don't step up and start changing things! Always remember, "People shouldn't be afraid of their governments, governments should be afraid of their people." (Sorry if I misquoted) There are always more of us than there are of them! All it takes if movement or a spark for people to wake up to the despicable position we find ourselves in today.
Consider that the DNC had intended from the get go that Hillary Clinton was going to be the Party Candidate to run for President before the campaigning even started ,might as well just give her the title ,stop the primaries and go directly to the campaigning for President right away.I say stop Politics fixing.
