I’m so busy struggling with all the day-to-day stuff that I find it hard to study the views of all the political candidates running for office. Maybe that’s the basic idea. Ya think? Even more discouraging is that after you vote a candidate into office, they change their political position, anyway.
Another frustration I have is Electoral College voting. If I’m going to the trouble of voting, I want my vote to count as much as, say, someone’s vote in New York. Yes, the Twelfth Amendment of the Constitution talks about electoral voting, but I think it’s being misrepresented in today’s world.
If I don’t like a restaurant, I don’t go back.
What has that got to do with voting?
Well, you also hear a lot of complaints about people NOT voting. I think if the ballot added a choice of “None of the Above”, we might see hoards of people clamoring to vote. Maybe people who don’t vote are really saying something. Give us another option, please.
Even if we do find a President whose views we like, the Senate and the House of Representatives always seem to veto the bill, anyway. Or even more annoyingly, add a bunch of crap onto the bill so that the good stuff can’t pass without the crap. Just saying.
What changes would you like to see? Speak up and be heard.
General Election is Tuesday, November 8, 2011.
