Get rid of the electoral college. Or, failing that, have it be proportional to the popular vote. if a state has 4 delegates and a 50/50 republican/democrat population then their 4 votes will be split, 2 and 2. I live in a republican state, my vote for president literally doesn’t count. Cause all our electoral votes go republican regardless of what the popular vote is. And yes, while I simply do not mind at all being spared all the bashing commercials, I also know that it’s a number’s game and the presidential candidate literally doesn’t give a fig about 90% of the country….all he cares about is scoring those few high delegate states that’ll win him the electoral college.
the system has been skewed to make it easy and cheap for candidates to do a minimal amount of work to gain a maximum amount of votes.
Term limits – we need to end 50 year long reigns of power in elected officials. If the prez is limited to 2 terms so should everyone else.
I’d like to say regulate the PACs more but make more rules they’ll just find more loopholes. After all most PACs were created to allow candidates to smear and attack each other while dodging any rules put in place trying to make them accountable for their attack ads. I just don’t know how to make it happen.
Failing that, maybe ending ALL political ads. No more ads on tv period. Maybe if the candidates spent less time attacking each other they could come up with actual plans for things to do and run on a better platform than ‘He sucks so much, you can’t elect him’.
