Here we go again…

I’m all in favor of democracy, but I hate idiocracy, which is the system currently in place, I sadly have to say. Drooling, uninformed idiots electing Schmucks who are less inteligent and informed than the idiots who elect them.

But fear not my fellow people, I have solutions!

Step 1: no more voting with 16! I mean seriously, what was I interested in at 16?
Tits! If you’re a sixteen year old, you should be listening to your raging hormones, not raging old folks!
Step 2: mandatory tests before elections. For both the candidates and the people – you wanna vote? You need to know shit. Current shit. Political shit. Shit you should know through osmosis, just by being alive, and watching the news at least once or twice a week.
Step 3: ignorance is a bliss! We never get to see the people we elect. Why? Politics has devolved from an argument based campaign to a popularity contest. Admitted most, of the scarecrows we have as leaders are anything BUT pretty faces, but still, you ask why someone voted for Joseph KillAJew “He has so pretty eyes!” And youre just standing there “what does that have to do with anything?”
Step 4: bound by blood…err..signature. Since we have informed people only voting now, who have a concept of “in ten years”, and no one ever saw the people we vote for, it is time to form an opinion! Candidates (and partys) have to sign a binding contract, that, in case they are elected, they will do everything in their power to fulfill their agenda. And their agenda has to be included in said contract. That’s the lies they currently tell us, only in this system, they’re bound to it, and if they neglect to even try – pay time! Massive monetary loss for the candidate/party and a ten legislations ban on competing again! (Yes, 50 years. Deal with it!)

This should, at least temporarily, fix the problem. No more idiots, no more pretty eyes, no more lies, no more teen favors. Real politics. Real people.
Period.

Here’s a little something to pin up in the voting booth:

DO YOU KNOW?
DO YOU REALLY KNOW?
ARE YOU SURE?
ARE YOU ABSOLUTELY SURE?

Just remember, we only get a government as good as its people, and therefore we can say only one thing: We’re fracked!
