4. Horrible proposal.

1. It's a fairly privately funding activity. If it's not important, it goes on. The importance it has is the importance we give it--it should be for something done, but lately it's been for posturing and preaching. As such, it's proclaimed its lack of importance. Except as preachers. (I left my church long ago and have little use for the incessant preaching that many engage in these days. "Be pure and righteous--like me!" Bullcrap secular Puritanism.)

2. Nominations are cheap. All kinds of folk are eligible to nominate somebody. It's like having a KKKer sign a petition for Biden to appear on the ballot as a joke--or seriously. The signature doesn't invalidate the process, the petition doesn't invalidate the process.

Which brings us back the aforementioned Puritanism.
