“Far-stretching, endless Time
Brings forth all hidden things,
And buries that which once did shine.
The firm resolve falters, the sacred oath is shattered;
And let none say, "It cannot happen here".
There are a lot of difficulties with Democracy. There must be an informed electorate. There must be a fair & just system. We have neither!
How Changing Our Voting System Will Get Us Out Of The Mess We’re In
The problems facing America today are the direct result of our flawed voting system, a system that guarantees one thing: our votes don’t count. We saw this in 2000 when the Supreme Court gave the 2000 presidential election to George W. Bush. We saw it 2008 when the super-delegates decided the democratic presidential nominee. And we see it every time Registered Independent Voters do not having the right to vote in primaries or caucuses.
One Person, One Vote is not about political parties anymore. It’s not about voting in people who will fix things for us. It’s about us voting directly on the issues.
It must be remembered that every movement in this country began with a simple idea from the American Revolution, to the abolition of slavery, to women’s voting rights, to the civil rights movement. Every constitutional amendment began by questioning why things were not working. Change grew from a groundswell of people wanted to see their country transformed. Now it’s up to us to transform the way we vote.
The time has come for us take charge of what we want for our country – not what the politicians want, not the president wants, not what the courts wants, and certainly not what the special interests and lobbyists want. Real change will only happen when we, the people, act for ourselves – and we do this through National Voting.
