The whole red vs blue + blue vs red mess is not leading us to better governance. Its broken. So is money.
If the objective were just to -have- the office, the current ad campaigns would be suitable so many political ads are about why the other guy sucks... not why they are the suitable candidate. Then, there is no accountability after being elected.
To lead and govern the people, to protect them from each other, and from outside entities (etc). To enjoy life as we all see fit, without destroying the enviroment, or keeping anyone else from enjoying theirs. Legislating on facts, and not on beliefs...you know, by and for the people.
Sure, there is a huge $$$ divide in our nation, one would hope that those "with" would have earned it thru supporting the culture, the people and society by doing something relevant. Like elected office, its not about having money, its a medium of exchange.
Who else thinks both processes are broken (money and politics), and we need to be lead/governed by those that want more consituents to enjoy a better life as interpreted in the changing world we are in. Do we need a rehash of our consitution to get back on track?
Lets create a wikipedia page set for candidates, so candidates can be understood, elected and held accountable.
Another Wiki page for the role of money as we evolve off barbaric mediums like bills/coinage.
