Am I the only one that thinks Bernie's Amendment doesn't go far enough?

It does not - unless I'm missing something - prevent someone like the Koch's from spending billions and billions to buy elections.

It does not get the rigable electronic systems out of the mix.

It does rely on Congress to do something about these problems.



Why go to the trouble of a Constitutional Amendment for crying out loud, if you still have to rely on Congress?

A Constitutional Amendment should solve the whole damned problem or why bother.

I like this version being promoted by Michael Moore better...

...snip..

A constitutional amendment that fixes our broken electoral system by 1) completely removing campaign contributions from the political process; 2) requiring all elections to be publicly financed; 3) moving election day to the weekend to increase voter turnout; 4) making all Americans registered voters at the moment of their birth; 5) banning computerized voting and requiring that all elections take place on paper ballots.


..end..


What is it that I'm missing????



Here's Bernie's proposal...

Did you say a 'culture of deviancy'?

Did you?

And what is white culture? Non deviant? They don't misbehave or speak terribly and unintelligibly in many areas? They don't kill or harm?

What about the hundreds of years of history of white racism? Not deviant? Even though it never ends and affects us and our children and always has? Or is it only us blacks that get labeled a deviant culture for our bad apples? Why do you white not whip your deviants and racists in public as you would have us do?

How about this? You go first. You fix your deviants and racists and do it loud and publicly while broad brushing yourselves, and when you all come correct, then we will take our turn. We have already spent 400 years being publicly whipped by our own for the benefit and pleasure of the majority. Now it us time for you all to take your lumps. From each other. Your turn.
