Campaign bribes may be the problem, but eliminating them with our current corrupt board of directors is not going to happen.
By Jack E. Lohman
The election of independents, in 100% of the political races, is the only thing that will eliminate our illegal and corrupt duopoly. And it is the only thing to guarantee future election reforms.
We must implement public funding of campaigns and other election reforms, like IRV/Ranked Choice Voting and a None-of-the-above ballot choice. But the only way to accomplish it is with non-Democrats and non-Republicans, who have to date been manipulating the rules.
First, this duopoly is an absolutely illegal conspiracy that should be challenged in court, and perhaps our good-government groups will ban together and do that. Secondly, it blows my mind that we have large segments of our population — both Lefties and Righties — that cannot connect the dots between the current demise of our country, and the corrupt politicians that lead it.
Voters and taxpayers are no different from shareholders who own a company. In fact, they have greater control and can re-elect new leaders at will. Let’s do it before our nation’s status dips even further!!! Our current politicians are auctioning off our nation’s assets all to build their own wealth. They must go.
The Dems didn’t bungle the Super Committee talks; they were bought off with campaign bribes. 2012 must be the year of the “Independents!” Fire every current politician, regardless of party!
