Truth Against The World #11

If this presidential election cycle has taught us anything, it is that we need section reforms in the worst way. Let me be clear, the voting process is fine. Its the campaigning that needs to be revised.
.
As it stands today, the modern election campaign is roughly a year and a half to two years long. During this time, presidential hopefuls try dig up as much dirt on the competition and pigeon hole their values and beliefs and their voting records. All of their voting records, for and against, are available on the internet. Roughly everybody has internet access in their house today. whether it be on a smart phone, tablet device or a home computer. If they do not have either of these, internet access is a (relatively) free service at your local library. You may need to pay for membership in the library.
.
The campaign season needs to be shortened from a year and a half to two years, to six months. Will the politicians find this unacceptable? Absolutely! And I am fine with that.
.
But the real problem is that the Democrats and the Republicans ( including the Tea Party Republicans ) hold all the power. This was not intended by the Founding Fathers. We are taught in school that America is for the people, by the people. In the current political climate this is no longer true. It is an illusion we are taught to pacify us. To indoctrinate us so we won’t challenge their claim to the power they hold dear.
.
By now you might be wondering what power I’m referring to. Political clout. Influence. Affluence. Power. If the current election process were to be changed or reformed in any way that allows to a third or fourth party  to participate, the Democrats and the Republicans would team up and do everything  to get them to drop out of the race.
.
The two majority parties mentioned above do not want to share the power with a member of the Socialist Party or the Green Party. This is because if they share this power, the most likely have the insane fear that either The Socialist Party or the Green Party would do what they did. That they would steal [ all ] the power for themselves. But would they really keep the power for themselves? Or would they return the power to the people where it belongs?
.
In closing I leave you with this. Both Bernie Sanders and Jesse Ventura were independents. Bernie is/was a  political independent with democratic leanings. And Jesse Ventura who was in politics as a independent at first switched affiliation to the democratic party. And that presently there are no Green Party members in either the U.S. Senate or the U.S. House of Representatives.
.
Now. Ask yourselves why that is.
