Both at the State and Federal Level
Are you tired of the two party political system in the United States? Would you like to see a system wherein third party candidates can succeed in being a representative for the people? Is there any way this can be accomplished, to break the two party stranglehold on American politics? Are you wondering how? Okay, let me explain an idea (certainly not the only idea either).
First, let me say that any change to break the two party hold on government will likely require some alterations to the US Constitution. The Constitution will be an integral part of this new political system. There will still be a House of Representatives and Senate as well. Making it possible for third party representation in Congress will provide a benefit that we do not have at the moment. It will provide a greater representation of the people. There are those who don’t want to vote for either major party candidate. While they could vote for third party candidates, they do so knowing that their candidate won’t likely win.
So, how do we end this problem? We change the form of our elected officials at the state and federal level from what it is now to a Constitutional Parliamentary form.
Note: I’ve spent the past several days putting together a long post on a subject that I find particularly blaring about White America. However, after reading about the President’s antics over this Memorial Day weekend, I needed to speak about it now.
Memorial Day is a solemn day of remembrance of the men and women of the U.S. military who gave their lives for our nation. Yes, there is also a weekend of activities throughout the country, even during this pandemic that is far from finished with us. Yet, not everybody knows how to behave.
President Donald Trump spent his weekend doing his best to show his irreverence and contempt for our fallen soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines. He also did it just as publicly as he possibly could. To his credit, he’s never one to pass up an opportunity to make an ass of himself. Plus, we must not forget the Trump apologists who expect mainstream America to believe the twisted logic they put out on behalf of the President.
America today doesn’t seem to be a nation that makes much sense to the rest of the world, let alone Americans. Hell, let alone me especially!
There is a definitive change in our society, pandemic aside for the moment. It is debatable whether this change is good or bad. I guess it will really depend where you stand and look at it.
I stand in the middle, looking outward at the many angles of life that drive the existence of our country. In many cases I do not like what I am seeing, primarily because of the political situation America is currently confronted with. That situation is our President, Donald Trump, and all the ugliness he has brought forth to, as he sees it, rule the United States.
