Presidential Questions

I think it is time for significant changes to the Presidential election process. 

The race for The White House begins earlier with each election season. The first thing I think we need to do as a nation is to limit the election season and not allow it to begin before February 1st of the year of the election. Nine months should be enough time to select a president. Babies only take that much time to be born.

Next, we need to change the candidate selection process. Instead of having a plethora of choices, We the People should decide upon the qualities we need in a president and draft that person to run for us. The way it is now, the candidates decide the issues, the people need to decide the issues and find the best person to serve. That is how the first few presidents were selected. There was no national primary system followed by a general election.

Finally, we need to continue to support the Electoral College system. The Electoral College has ensured the relevancy of the less populated states and rural areas of the country. Loss of the Electoral College would render anything other than the big cities irrelevant.

Maybe we can find a real person to be President.

We need one--and it surely in not "The Donald."
