Isn’t it time to level the political playing field in America? – June 2016

Changing Tides - June 2016

By this time next week, the California primary will likely be history. The predictions are calculated for months in advance on a daily basis, so there is little room for surprise. And if there is a surprise like we experienced in the Gore vs. Bush election of 2000, everything turns into chaos. Political chaos is never good.

So I have a simple proposal. Only those Americans with a tax ID can vote. All voting is done online and the unique tax ID is used to prevent people from voting more than once. Community polling centers would be set up at schools and churches for those without a computer.

Why is this a good idea? It would save a lot of paper. It would save a lot of money. It would increase voter participation due to its convenience to vote at home or by phone. It would be far more democratic because every citizen’s vote would count. So who wouldn’t like that? Probably the 538 electors who theoretically represent our interests in the electoral college. They would be outvoted. But hey, whatever happened to majority rules?

What do you think?
