Political Changes Are In Order - It is high time for a change in our political system and the way we govern our country. We have to put an end to the traditional way of doing things. They are outmoded, and no longer have any real meaning in the way things can work if we are to see our country remain stable.
First, we must remove the Electoral College, and elect our leaders strictly by popular vote. It should be a simple thing that the person who receives the most votes, wins. It makes nose sense to see a candidate win an election’s popular vote, only to lose by the electoral system. Besides, electoral representatives in certain conditions don’t have to be bound by the mandate of the people in the event of candidates not having enough electoral votes to win.

Political Changes Are In Order
It is high time for a change in ourpolitical systemand the way we govern our country. Wehave to put an end to the traditional way of doing things. They are outmoded, and no longerhave any real meaning in the way things can work if we are to see our country remain stable.First, we must remove theElectoral College,and elect our leaders strictly bypopular vote. It should be a simple thing that the person who receives the most votes, wins. It makes nosesense to see a candidate win an elections popular vote, only to lose by the electoral system.Besides,electoral representativesin certain conditions dont have to be bound by themandate of the people in the event of candidates not having enough electoral votes to win.Surely, this doesnt appear to be a democracy. When the first George Bush became president,it was decided by the Supreme Court. If we are to continue to have a free country, this cannothappen again.Also,the two party majorities
 
, no longer make sense. The majority in theRepublican Party call themselves conservatives, and makes every effort to purge themselves of moderatemembers of the party.Charlie ChristandLincoln Chaffeewere perfect examples. The democrats,if electing a more liberal candidate, have major problems holding on to power,because they lose their more moderate constituency. Athree party systemis in order now.We should have a liberal, conservative and moderate party with representatives in each partythat represent the political leanings of the areas where they rule.The way it would go is like this. The three parties would run candidates inparty primariesforlocal, state and national office. Every party in the fourth year would run a presidentialcandidate as well. All voters who declare party affiliation as a conservative, liberal ormoderate would elect their partys candidates.Non-affiliated voterscould only vote in theelections.Campaignswould be severely limited in spending, so people could no longer run based ontheir financial capabilities. This would bring back the theory that anyone can run for office,regardless of their wealth.OnElection Day, winners would only be announced when an election ended, and there wouldbe no more projections. Every effort should be made to keep the media from dictating howelection outcomes should be run.
