Think of it as a right-to-work-for-America law, but for politicians: We don’t like you. That’s all we need. Buh-bye.
So, no matter what voting improvements are made, if any, in the coming year or four, rest assured it likely won’t be enough. Unless we radically reassess the actual voting process, all of those down-ticket candidates and issues are being settled – in far too many instances – by the equivalent of taking a multiple choice quiz without ever receiving adequate study materials. When it comes to real democratic elections, folks, we are doomed to fail that test.
