voting regulations

21 Aug

It is unfortunate that the politicians and Judges in power don’t have the intelligence to assess the problems to make proper decisions concerning anything.  In this case I am referring to voting.

 At the present time we have the states making decisions on how to vote in federal elections.  Since all the total population is eligible to vote for all federal policy makers in the legislative branch of government and the president and vice president in the executive branch of government, I believe the federal government should have the right to adjust the voting rights for those elections.

 

If I am voting for President or Vice President, if anyone anywhere in the United States is disenfranchised from voting my vote is either enhanced or impaired which should not be the case ever.  My vote should be on an equal playing field with all the others voting for candidates for those offices.  If I am voting for a senator or representative to sit in the United States Congress,   if anyone anywhere in my state is disenfranchised from voting my vote is either enhanced or impaired which should not be the case ever. My vote should be on an equal playing field with all the others voting for candidates for those offices. 

 

In any other scenario of voter control only a few persons are manipulating the system to elect only those they want to be elected.  Therefore this ability of choosing representatives on a national level should be regulated by the Federal Government.  

 

The states then could set the regulations for state and local representation.  This however in many states would result in two elections and to sets of voting cards.  In many cases it would case two separate elections to be held.  This would be more expensive, but it would be the only thing that would come close to the intentions written in the Constitution. 

 

If my argument holds then the Federal Government in its elections should make the rules of election uniform throughout the United States so we don’t end up in a situation that allows the Supreme Court to elect the president. 

 

I checked into American Values First website because I was happy someone was thinking, at least I thought, outside the box to discover they were probably working the same way everyone else is working.  This description refers to individuals and organizations that simply have an idea and sell it.  They are afraid to allow people to give real input to address problems faced.

 

The present administration is doing the same thing.  They want change, but not from the ground up.  They solicit people that caused the problems to solve the problems without input from the people that are working within the conditions that resulted from the problems caused by the people in power that caused the problems.

 

I suggest someone read the definition of grass roots and instead of just saying grass roots, follow the definition principles.
