Well, let me start this by saying – your guess is as good as mine! BUT, I do have an idea. I’ll share it here and you figure out how to make it work – how does that sound?
The way a LOT of us see it is that the FAR Left and the FAR Right – are totally clueless. Their ideas on how to fix things are just about worthless AND at opposite ends of the spectrum. Neither wants to help the other make a success of fixing our government, they just want to do it THEIR way.
SO – Screw them! There are enough votes from those of us in the middle of the road to win any election if they/we just pull their/our heads out of their/our butts and work together.
There are a couple of good guys out there that could do the job as President and more than enough to take over the House and Senate with ease.
The key to accomplishing this is – hold it – are you ready for this – here it is – TRUST! YUP, IT’S THAT SIMPLE!
The problem is developing that trust! The moderates have a natural tendency to distrust each other and elect the people we really need. We have to put away our differences and make some hard decisions. Do we vote for the “safe” guy or really try do make a serious change in how the government works?
We HAVE the ability to make the FAR left and FAR right shake in their boots at election time. Now YOU just have to figure out how to do it. How do you make the people opposite you, trust you? How do you know they will keep their promise if they tell you they will vote for the middle of the road candidate.
So my friends, here is your task if you choose to fix our government!
Figure out how to make a “Third Party Candidate” work for us all. How do we get people on both sides to make the move and do the right thing. How do we stop the mistrust we all have for “the other side”? How do we move the dead wood out of office and put in new blood.
Once this is done we need to take care of the next problem, we need term limits! We need to make sure no other legislators get into office and make a living of it. Max of 12 years and we boot them out and start over again.
If we did these two things we would be on the road quickly and permanently.
So, give me your plan to make this happen, lets get things moving!
