12. Is that looming threat from the fringe elements, perhaps?

20. New Party System

The election process as it is now pleases nobody. The huge amounts of money that turn elections into auctions are on side of the problem, the other is the process itself.

In our two party system a voter has no option but to support the party nominee because anything else works against the reasons for aligning with the party to begin with. It isn't a perfect democracy but what are you going to do?

The real problems come up before and after the election vote. The Electoral College is an un-democratic dinosaur. We can't get rid of it. We're stuck.

The party primary system is a patchwork of crazy rules that has shown how badly it functions in getting voter input and chose a candidate. In an era when just about anyone who cares to can log on to a site on the Interwebs, this ancient primary mechanism is worse than obsolete.

We should make party membership be real. Joining one's state party should be easy and mandatory. I' like to see a $5 enrollment fee just to get some skin in the game. Join online and get your party PIN number. Now you can log on to the party websites, state and national, and vote in surveys and opinion polls to steer the party leadership. Primaries are closed primaries voting limited to members signed up for some time.

With this technology, party member input becomes real and important. As for primary elections, they can be held over and over until a real consensus is formed. The whole thing would cost less money than a single state primary does now. People have lost faith in the party system. We need to get it back of we are to restore real democracy to our constitutional process. Just sayin' ...
