THE DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN TRIBES HAVE GRIDLOCKED THE GOVERNMENT. WHAT-TO-DO?
Friends after 240 years the American Democracy has shown that it is at a dead end. Each party over 240 years haS learned how to manipulate the government such that it shuts down. It really is incredible that there have been 3 shutdowns this year. And it is also mind-boggling that one issue and $5 billion dollars has closed the government.
I have created the only solution that will permanently break any future gridlocks. First, the Electoral College must go. You cannot have a Democracy that operates on anything less than the majority rules. When you skew that principle in any way, then you put a crack in the foundation of any Democracy. The Electoral College allows a candidate to take the office of President who is not backed by the majority of the voters. If you think about that for a nano-second you have to ask: WHAT ????. We had an election just like in kindergarten and the loser won. Is that possible?
Without the Electoral College, 80% of the chaos that has existed for the last two years would not have occurred. Democrats, the majority of the voters against Trump, have a right to attack the Trump Presidency on every issue because he does not represent the majority view.
Even with the Electoral College out of the Constitution, there is still a problem of one party having the House, Senate and White House. The tendency is to take advantage of that majority and stop compromising. Then when the opposite party becomes the majority in the House, Senate and White House, they extract payback and reverse the laws that were passed by the prior party. That creates ongoing chaos in government.
The solution is my candidacy for President. It is an independent write-in candidacy. Independent in the true sense, meaning no association with either existing party or any new party.
The Democrat and Republican parties truly represent the counter positions on all not agreed on issues. There is no need for a third party except one to call to attention to an issue avoided by both the dominant parties. That party could conceivably win a seat in the House and have its views represented but it is unlikely to win a seat in the Senate or the Presidency. Those offices require a broader perspective. The Office of the President needs to represent a middle ground of some Democratic and some Republican issues. An independent candidacy for President would have a flexible platform from election to election. It would not force voters to accept an all or none platform of one party or the other. The various Independent candidates would support a different combination of the Democratic and Republican issues or a different priority on the issues. And as a result, the voters could choose the direction they wanted the government to move in the next four years.
Also, an Independent candidacy would focus on the candidate and not the party. The independent candidate would have to present himself as the best candidate to move the country forward as opposed to the best candidate to move the inflexible agenda of one party or the other forward.
An Independent President would be free to work out a compromise because he or she would not be locked into the Democratic or Republican platform with reduced ability to compromise and move the government forward.
NOW CONSIDER THIS: I am proceeding to implement this concept. I am running as an Independent Candidate. And I am running as a write-in candidate which means I do not have to participate in party primaries. It means that the platform and agenda I had two years ago when I declared myself a candidate for President, I will promote for four years until the next election. I do not have to rip apart my fellow party members during primaries which always leaves animosities. Primaries are divisive events.
There is no way a state can prevent a write-in candidate. If there is no room on the ballot, all the voter has to do is write it in on the paper ballot. Even if the electronic machine refused to count the vote, I think a lawsuit by the candidate could force the state to count the write-in votes. I do not think the constitution could be read to deny a voter to vote for a nonparty affiliated candidate for President. Since my candidacy will be the first of its kind, you can bet the write-in issue will go to the courts if even one state refuses to count write-in votes for president. If a state tried to disallow write-in votes in for the Federal Office of President, I think that would be a clear case of Federal voter disenfranchisement.
I will put all 50 states on notice that if they try to prevent or discount or ignore or otherwise deny a write-in vote for me for President, they will be facing potential chaos in the elections in November 2020.
The bottom line here friends, is that our government is shut down for the third time this year. That is a severe problem and it must be addressed.
Why should I be president in 2020? Because no one else has presented any viable solution to stop the gridlock in Washington, DC except me, Dr John WorldPeace JD.
