- The process of selecting candidates for president is catastrophically flawed and obsolete.
- Political parties that govern the process of candidate selection are ineffective and obsolete.
- There are no standards for evaluating candidates.
- There is little understanding about the jobs that are sought by candidates by the voters who must evaluate candidates.
Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Ignorance about our government and process that is essential to selecting and electing superior candidates is without excuse.
The American electorate may not be more ignorant than the past. However, the electorate is not keeping pace with what is needed to select and elect excellent candidates for public office intelligently.
What can be done about it?
Legally, we are stuck with Trump at least for four years. His moral integrity as a person and role model cannot be improved.
We the People can demand improvement from both political parties. We must audit their performance, their systems, and leadership from bottom to top. We must become better educated about what is the need to address the considerable needs of the nation. We must select and elect candidates whose personal constitution aligns with our highest ideals.
I am going to do something about it.
