Money and Politics

In my opinion there is too much money involved in our elections. The cities I have lived in, the local politicians did not have to be rich to run for office…why can it not be the same with our Presidents, Senators, and Congress members? It does not seem fair to we the people for only the ones with a lot of money are able to run for office.

If I had my way…

Anyone could run for whatever political office they chose to and we the people could vote for whomever we believed could do the best for our country.

There would be no Electoral College…anyone and hopefully everyone eligible to vote would vote and the person with the most votes would win the election. I have heard the arguments as to why the Electoral College is more fair and do not agree with them.

There would be no careers as politicians, there would be term limits for every political office.

Every elected official would be in office to work for the better good of our country and not to get rich while in office.

And what would make me real happy is if we had NO political parties.

I dream big and one never knows if and when their dreams could possibly come true.
