How the President should be elected
Here's the format:
10 people are going to vie to be the leader of the USA. Beginning in January they will need to complete 10 tasks- 1 per month, January thru October with the best performer being inducted in November- right on time.
Each month on the first the new task will be presented to them. They will have to raise the money and put it towards that task. The task could be Creating a solution and putting it into action for homelessness, or creating universal health care, repairing Social Security or cleaning the environment-just to name a few.
In doing this selection process we can have most problems fixed by the time November rolls around and it will be general maintanance at that point. At the end of the month you will see who achieved the goal. Whoever did the least is now out of the running. It will trim the selection pool down until the last month you will have the top two performers competing in the last task. Whoever does the best job there will be President. Period.
No talking, no promising, no warming up to any special interest groups at all. The leader will have shown the ability to take a problem in our nation, find a solution and put that solution into effect immediately. Everybody wins! The Nation is back on track. No more political red tape and time wasting. No more disconnected, overfed, overpaid politicians in nice suits, perfect smiles, a unique hand gesture and immovable hair who have zero interest in anyone but their own pockets wasting our time, money and resources. This should scare a lot of people but it should set a light bulb off in the heads of 95% of the people.
Of the people, for the people and by the people. Let's take it back!
