Everyone on VT already knows the US government is out of control and has NOT represented WE THE PEOPLE for quite a long time. They know all about the legal bribing of Congress, the Supreme Court, and the Presidency…. they know the big money controls it all and the profiteering mainstream media is all in for profits with talking heads making millions to pedal non-sense and distract WE THE PEOPLE from the reality. It’s NOT news!
But for the rest of the world, well not so much…
You see, that pesky grotesque profiteering media propaganda that uses misdirection has got the Average Joe Blow believing the problem is the other Joe Blow and he’s the real enemy.
It would be a hilarious SNL comedy sketch if it was NOT so dog-gone real.
To make it even more clear…
They kicked JOE BLOW in the ballz, stole his $$$, and got him to punch up the other JOE BLOW who also got kicked in the ballz and had his $$$ stolen.
The profiteers have been walking away with the store as Average Joe Blow cheers them on!
So one side says “Hunter Biden is taking Bribes blah blah…. ” and the other side says “Jared and Ivanka are taking $ 2 billion blah blah….” And it goes on and on. They say the DEMS are the problem. The other Joe Blow says “No, the GOP is the problem.
In reality, the system is the problem and each side is being played like a cheap piano; fodder for the Guns of Profiteers who aim right for their wallets and minds…robbing them blind of coin and common sense!
Now, everyone knows I despise Trump; but not because he’s a Republican. He’s not and never was! No no no, he told the truth when he said he bribes everyone; Dems and GOP. He knows the game.
My problem with Sore Loser Trump is NOT that he plays the game but that when given the chance to lead, he failed to respond and be the actual President of the USA.
Instead, he went full MAGA Only President magnifying the play on to divide-and-conquer. He chose to be The Chief of Exploiting and Profiteering instead of a Lincoln, Gandhi, or Mandela.
Now, he’s just a bloated grotesque worthless pig who scapegoated undocumented workers, Muslims and so much more (the list is too freakin long).
But the worst of all of them is that chose to exploit his own MAGA cult for hundreds upon hundreds of millions. So yeah, I don’t like him. He’s a pure Machiavellian Greed Monster allowed to fester in a system gone mad.
But I digress….so let’s stay focused here…
The real deal is to take back America from the profiteers in both parties and the bankster and billionaire corporations who purchase their fealty. So for you, I put forth these top 10 political reforms that will revitalize and strengthen the US government, ensuring it remains responsive, accountable, and effective in serving its citizens. Here ya go go go…
1. Campaign Finance Reform
The influence of money in politics has reached concerning levels. To ensure fair representation, campaign finance reform is essential. Implementing stricter regulations on political donations and contributions, limiting the influence of wealthy donors, and exploring public financing options can help level the playing field and promote genuine representation.
2. Gerrymandering Mitigation
Gerrymandering, the manipulation of electoral boundaries to favor one political party, distorts the democratic process. Establishing independent redistricting commissions and adopting more transparent and objective criteria for redistricting can help prevent partisan manipulation and ensure fair representation.
3. Ranked-Choice Voting
The current first-past-the-post voting system can lead to a two-party duopoly and discourage third-party or independent candidates. Ranked-choice voting allows voters to rank candidates in order of preference, ensuring that winners have broader support and fostering a more diverse political landscape.
4. Electoral College Reform
The Electoral College’s role in presidential elections has been a subject of debate. While respecting the balance between federal and state interests, reforms could include allocating electoral votes proportionally rather than winner-takes-all, ensuring that every vote counts, and reducing the potential for candidates to focus solely on swing states.
5. Term Limits
Term limits for members of Congress can prevent the entrenchment of power and promote fresh perspectives. While experience is valuable, an infusion of new ideas can help break the gridlock and foster a more dynamic legislative process.
6. Overhaul of Lobbying Regulations
Transparent lobbying regulations are crucial to prevent undue corporate influence on policy decisions. Requiring more detailed disclosure of lobbying activities, imposing cooling-off periods for former government officials, and restricting the revolving door between government and lobbying can enhance public trust in the political process.
7. Strengthening of Ethics Oversight
A robust and independent ethics oversight body can hold elected officials and government employees accountable for ethical violations. Ensuring adequate funding, investigatory powers, and transparency in the ethics enforcement process can maintain the integrity of the government.
8. Enhanced Civic Education
A well-informed citizenry is the foundation of a healthy democracy. Implementing comprehensive civic education programs in schools and beyond can equip citizens with the knowledge and critical thinking skills needed to engage effectively in the democratic process.
9. Streamlining Bureaucracy
Excessive bureaucracy can hinder the government’s ability to respond efficiently to challenges. By streamlining administrative processes, reducing redundancies, and embracing digital innovation, the government can become more agile and responsive to the needs of the people.
10. Decentralization of Power
Devolving power to local governments can encourage citizen participation and tailor policies to specific regional needs. Empowering local communities can foster a sense of ownership and lead to more effective governance.
Oh, and the big one that is NOT directly political? MASSIVE MEDIA REFORM to return media to truth and stop all this propaganda that is hurting every JOE BLOW!
Okay, so that’s it.
I mean, the United States has a proud history of adapting and evolving its political system and so implementing these top 10 political reforms above will help address contemporary challenges and ensure that the government remains truly representative, accountable, and effective in serving the interests of all citizens.
By fostering transparency, limiting undue influence, and encouraging civic engagement, these reforms can lay the groundwork for a stronger and more resilient democracy and return the USA to prominence as a beacon of hope for relative freedom in our relatively un-free world.
