OK - I just read the link you posted.
Makes sense, but then I am a Canadian - though I think increasingly that hardly matters - we are a fifty-first state in all but name - a client country.
Suppose this worked - what then ?
Neither the Democratic Party nor the Republicans deserve to hold office - both are irredeemably corrupt right to the top.
Jill Stein is literally the only sane politician I see in the western hemisphere - Evo Morales of Bolivia excepted - but he will soon be done in I think.
I cannot but go back to Lysander Spooner - and John Gofman, who alerted me to Spooner in his anti-nuclear book "Irrevy".
Spooner, a constitutional lawyer, became - after a long life - an individual anarchist, and I am thinking this might be worth a try, Lincoln's thoughts on this having been proven categorically wrong.
In Spooner's essay "Natural Justice", he makes a compelling case that all legislation is a "usurpation" of natural rights.
Tribal life would seem to indicate this is true.
I don't like debate - and I don't want it now.
The reason I suggest an alternative is because this system is the pitts - and I don't like failure on any level.
We, if there is in fact any meaning to the term "We the People", cannot win under this system of governance - not in any democratic sense.
So, as I learned the hard way in my own life, if something is not working -
"Try Something Else !"
PS: In the age of the Internet - for the first time it might be possible to govern without elected officials.
No - the electorate is not ready for this - but there is nothing like immense responsibility to sharpen one's faculties, and, if, in he end, little got done - why would that be a bad thing?
All we're doing now is spiraling in. There is a red line - then the wings come off.
