Solution #8 to the Dysfunctional Political System in America
We all know that the current atmosphere in Washington, D.C. can be described as dysfunctional. I’ve been giving a lot of thought to ways that our dysfunctional political system could be fixed. Here’s what I’ve come up with.
Today, I'll expand on solution #8:
Vote Them All Out and Start Over—Well, this idea is pretty simple. What we’ve got in
Washington, D.C. right now isn’t working. So, let’s get rid of all of them. Wipe the slate clean,
and start all over. If you’ve been in the federal government before, whether elected or not, the
people just shouldn’t vote to you. If we keep electing them, we’ll just get more of the same as
former members of the Congress or of the government will come out of the woodwork to get
back into some position of power. Each and every seat in the Congress belongs to the American
people, not one individual or any particular party. We don’t have peerages in America where
you get a seat if you have a certain hereditary advantage. The American people need to wake
up and smell the roses. The people in Washington aren’t working for you. They’re working for
themselves and they will do or say whatever it takes for self preservation—for keeping their
seat and position. The media is biased and is going to push certain candidates who support a
particular agenda. Let’s educate the American people about how they’re being taken advantage
of by the politicians and their special interest financial backers and lobbyists in Washington.
Let’s find some good, hardworking American citizens and taxpayers to run for these seats
and let’s get them elected. Let’s tell the media to start reporting the news and not trying to
make the news so that the voting population can be informed about the candidates, their
qualifications, and their goals for America. Let’s get people elected to the Congress who aren’t
career politicians or lawyers but who are interested in saving America from the self destructive
path that we’re being led down.
