22. They are ONE thing we need to be protesting.
The entire system and way we elect our candidates must change.

Paper ballots is one very important thing that must change.

There are many others.

Removing legalized bribery, instituting publicly funded elections, imposing term limits, creating bans on serving as lobbyists/corporate BOD's/etc., creating a massively reduced campaign season - it's time to kill the circus, etc.

We need to make the system work for the people and not have a system that guarantees millions to those of us who become elected to Congress. Those days are hopefully coming to an end one day.
