I came across a political organization called Party X. I must admit that I fully agree with some of its statements:
The Plan for Elections
In the interest of fairness and democracy, no vote must ever be allowed to be "wasted". To accomplish this, the federal government must force states to use an "Instant Run-off" type of ballot so votes are not "wasted" and people do not feel like they are forced to vote for the "lesser of two evils". (This is a great idea!)
Find Regular People to Run for Office-
Trying to influence career politicians has proven to be a fruitless effort throughout history. The only way to affect change is to become the representatives. We could randomly select 100 individuals and they would perform much better than the 100 individuals who now constitute the U.S. Senate. Imagine what we could do with 100 Senators who are dedicated to restoring America to the great nation it once was rather than a group of career politicians who occupy the Capital today solely for their own self-interests. (This is another good idea. There should be a party that elects solely those who aren't insiders, who have never owned a large business, and have no corporate ties.)
Unfortunately, Party X calls for placing much more power in the hands of the federal government. We've seen the dangers of federal power and a strong executive under Bush.
