I'd like doing away with primaries as well. I want to vote for a person not someone who is just towing a party-line
Mostly agree, except you might have the problem of glut if everyone who wanted to run for president actually did. Money is a barrier, and if removed, another barrier would be needed. I don't know how to address this problem overall, but I generally have more faith in independently wealthy politicians as they don't have to bow to interest groups.Originally posted by: PrinceofWands
20. Finance in campaigns is one of the single biggest problems in American politics. It has created a 'rich only' government which is wholly out of touch with the people it is supposed to represent. Money should have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with anything, especially your chances of being elected. I would take his idea much further in order to make money absolutely meaningless in elections.
