Politics in The United States

Political Priorities

“I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.”

                     ~~~Thomas Jefferson

Two top priorities for American voters to regain our Democracy:

Publicly financed elections:

Americans need to get big money out of politics.


We can do this by designating $10 of our tax return to go to public financed elections funds. This would put more than enough money into our election system to pay for all future elections, giving all candidates an equal amount of money with which to seek federal office. It would truly put the elections back into the hands of the people.

Paper Ballots:

America needs to outlaw electronic voting machines and go back to using locally monitored, locally verified, locally counted paper ballots.


Electronic voting machines should be outlawed, or at the very least, taken out of the control of the corporations and put into the hands of the people. These machines can be manipulated by anyone!!!!
