Kickstarting the Revolution
So i'm not american, but this particular podcast on the american voting system was such a great listen.http://www.dancarlin.com/product/common-sense-282-kickstarting-revolution/
Highlights for me:
We have one more choice of president than the old soviet union used to have- George Carlin
"you arent allowed to be blissfully unaware; in a republic, we all have a responsibility and job to do, for the system to work"
"The internet is this wild card, what about a kickstarter idea for votes? Won't that encourage more people to run against those backed by larger entities?"
"Some creator, innovator, business person, out there, he would make a great choice too wouldnt he? Would love to see one of those people up there on a stage with Hilary Clinton and Mitt Romney..whichever terrible choice we have, won't it be great to have someone different?" (*vote Rym for president)
"i'm not here to fix the budget, I'm not here to fix the wars, I'm here to reconnect the people with the political system, and that will be my legacy"http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/15/books/republic-lost-campaign-finance-reform-book-review.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0
