First Of Two New Posts—READ BOTH

ISSUE ONE–THE ELECTION…..ISSUE TWO…LOVE THOSE IRISH

I FIGURED OUT THE DEFINITIVE METHOD WHICH WILL FORCE US TO RUN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS WHILE GUARANTEEING THAT WE WILL CHOOSE SUBSTANCE, INSTEAD OF IMAGE EVERY TIME!
Popularity, looks, and charm will mean nothing, if we adopt this system……..
We enter the voting booth and ONLY ISSUES ARE LISTED;
NOT CANDIDATES’ NAMES:

THE IRAQ WAR; you write a sentence of two on YOUR opinion/
EDUCATION… write what YOU want done about improvement/
HEALTH CARE…again, YOU write what you want done about it/
HOMELAND SECURITY…same thing….write YOUR views…./
THE ECONOMY…..again…YOUR views for improvement/
IMMIGRATION……write in YOUR answer to the problem/
RIGHT TO LIFE vs FREE CHOICE; write what YOU believe/

You then leave the voting booth…….when the voting period ends that night….A VERY SOPHISICATED COMPUTER CALCULATES THE MAJORITY VIEWS ON ALL THE ISSUES VOTED ON DURING THE ELECTION HOURS.
THE MAJORITY OPINIONS ARE CALCULATED, AND THEN MATCHED TO THE POSITIONS OF EACH CANDIDATE….AND THE COMPUTER PICKS THE CANDIDATE WHO MOST CLOSELY SUPPORTS THE MAJORITY POSITIONS OF THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE. CASE CLOSED, AN ELECTION BASED ON ISSUES ALONG.
There! I solved the problem….we don’t have to worry about which candidate looks the best, sounds the best, charms us the most etc., etc,…..
IT WILL BE DONE OBJECTIVELY WITHOUT HUMAN ERROR.
WHADA-YA THINK? LIKE THAT IDEA?

    Your proposal is almost as scary as Carl Rove…..always remember w/computers: garbage in garbage out. Sorry Sweetie…back to the drawing board……….

    OF COURSE IT’S OVER THE EDGE…BUT I’LL I DO ANYTHING TO GET PEOPLE TO MAKE THE PROCESS MORE SUBSTANTIVE, RATHER THAN THE SHALLOW PERSONALITY CONTEST IT IS NOW.

    I don’t give a rat’s ass about the personality of the president….he or she can be ugly, ill-mannered, even classless….anything he or she wants to be…..
    ALL I WANT IS SMART, INSIGHTFUL, AND MOST OF ALL, A PERSON WHO USES ALL THREE STEPS IN THE DECISION-MAKING PROCESS:
    1. Will my decision solve the immediate problem, AND,
    2. What are the surrounding circumstances related to my decision, AND,
    3. What the the possible short term and long term results of my
    decision
    HELP ME OUT…HOW CAN THAT BE DONE?

  3. Duffy Says:

    I’m not sure it can. A great number of people are easily swayed by emotion rather than facts or logic. We live in a multimedia culture where people have the attention span of a gnat. If you can figure out a way to get a majority of the voters to sit through substantive policy debates you’re certainly smarter than I am.

  4. Referendum Says:

    Legislate through referendum…

    What is popular is not always right, and
    what is right is not always popular.
