Disappointment with the political class is an open discussion these days. Both major parties are corporate-owned, their leaders little more than puppets and none of them represents any of us.
That reality has finally pushed average Americans into talking among ourselves. And talk we have.
Lots of genuine conversations about real issues have transpired and do you know what’s happening? Some really good ideas are starting to surface.
One of those ideas has resulted in the formation of Americans Elect, an Internet era solution to the gridlock and general childishness that currently occupies political space.
Essentially, Americans Elect has created a new way to select our leaders. It doesn’t rely on political parties or big-time donors and they don’t support any policies or candidates.
They, instead, provide the mechanism for voters to select a president based on issues that the voters themselves define. We select a president, not a party.
It’s how democracy is supposed to work and it’s here at last.
