I truly believe the party system is the major problem we have in elections. Both candidates speak of change, but since everyone votes along party lines in the senate and congress most of the time....what can actually change? Unless we can convince our politicians that we really really want them to stand up and be individuals representing us, change is impossible. Anyone have an idea for an alternative to the party system? I would love to lose those "D" and "R" from our government.
The second change I would like to see is to get rid of the electoral vote. Living in Massachusetts, which has voted democrat in every presidential election since I have been voting, means I have no reason to go vote. My vote doesn't count. It doesn't matter if I vote R or D...my vote doesnt go anywhere. Wouldn't it be nice if my vote...my little vote..was added to a tally and the person with the most votes in the country won?
