We must cancel the antiquated Electoral College

We must Cancel the antiquated Electoral College Then Politicians must take Blogging 101 to Prove they're doing the Peoples work to get elected!

We discuss the countries problems all day every day not only here but on many Liberal Blogs and on the other side Conservatives do it on their Blogs. However, we need to stop wasting our time and talking the issues amongst ourselves and implement a system in which we are heard. We can do this!

What "We the people" think should be heard and required to be acted on as a prerequisite to being elected or reelected. We have been burned not only by this Republican MIS Administration but by inadequate public representatives from both parties.

"It is time to implement a verifiable Voting System that Represents the people not the Politicians! James Joiner Daily kos 2007

However thinking about it more these solutions are even more basic and comprehensive and voting time is rapidly creeping upon us again as our attention is diverted to the many problems around the world.

The issue of solving our election problems so another election is not stolen and "'We the people" are heard and our thoughts acted on are more important than ever and I have a very viable way to accomplish this but we must get our solutions heard where it matters and have them acted on. Tell me what you think!

First, we must Abolish the antiquated Electoral College. that served the peoples purpose when we could not get ourselves heard in rural America. As we learned with Bush it now represents the interests of the Politicians. We are capable of going to the polls today and speaking for ourselves.

While on the subject of a system working for the Politicians we must also throw out these new electronic voting systems because they can be tampered with casting any vote the tamperer wants and you ca not detect it. Paper trail or not it is worthless because you cannot prove the vote was real.

Technology is not the voters friend! Technology is the Politicians friend! Anyway 2ndly we must as a prerequisite to running pass a requirement that every single politician or perspective Politician must make an enforceable promise to do the work of their constituents and America not their special Interest handlers. While having to take a course about the top Blogs from their party to know what their constituents want and make them responsible for speaking for the people and not them and special interests.

Politicians must prove performance. We have got to hold them accountable. We do not care what Politicians think. They are supposed to care about what we think. They are supposed to represent "we the people" not we the Politicians.

Our Government of the people, for the people, by the people, facilitated by society, has become a Government of the Politician, for the affluent, by the media, facilitated by the so called legal system. This has got to change. We have got to take "our America" back. It is imperative to the countries future and we owe it to our kids.

Just this second I got off the phone with one of my sons that just got back from Afghanistan. Of course the conversation turned to Politics. I explained what I am saying right now and laid the future of his kids and country on his shoulders. He must for his children take an active role in cleaning up this mess. He is still determined to go back to Afghanistan this winter. He is EOD and I don't like it but some of these idiots my son included find some perverse pleasure in this.

I am afraid our misleaders will keep him busier than he wants regardless of who gets elected next. He wants to retire after 20 years and that is 7 years away. I can only pray that he makes it and survives paying off Republican and Democrat trillions in debt put on their shoulders to be paid when he is gone. Boy are our kids getting a screwing!

I can relate to that. It's the thrill of doing something that few can do. I can only wish your son was paid well for the privilege but I know that's not true with the military.
The real problem is getting all the money out of politics. With what is spent on these campaigns we could fix many of the nations problems. What is it up to this year, something like a half trillion dollars? We spent less than that on the stimulus.

We could easily have a fool proof system by now and should have but the system is designed to let fools control it and get elected. We are the bigger fools for allowing it to happen right under our noses.
