In the 2016 Election, the Electoral College worked exactly as it was designed. It balanced the interests of the large coastal, consumer-driven cities -- for example Los Angeles and New York -- with the interests of the smaller, producer cities and rural farming and industrial populations The Founding Fathers believed the job of electing a President was too important to be left to the people. Both under the original Constitution and the 12th Amendment, that task was delegated to states – not the citizenry. The Electoral College reflects the popular will of voters state by state -- not across state lines.
It is the job of the media to inform the electorate not to inflame or manipulate it. America needs a free, independent, unbiased press corps more today than ever before. If we can't trust our politicians – then we must be able to trust our press to be the ever vigilant guardians of our freedom. American democracy doesn't work without an inquiring press.
The 2016 Election the depth of the divisions in this country. Those divisions are both human and institutional. Reform, renovation and rebirth are urgently needed. But before we turn our attention to the future – let's take a moment to summarize what went right and what went wrong on Election Day, November 8.
I would favor a law banning public announcements of poll results in the last 30 days before an election. The mystery would deepen. "What if I don't vote and my candidate loses by one vote"? Put the pollsters in their place – do your duty, vote!
Clinton or Trump or Johnson or Stein -- we are going to have to vote to hire one of them to manage our economy and national security for the next 4 years. They are all imperfect candidates. I want to be persuaded objectively – independent of my emotions and against a common standard which candidate is at least not going to make a bad situation worse. The 2016 Reimagineamerica Presidential Scorecard is designed to help you reach your best possible choice -- objectively. By the numbers!
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projects National Debt will rise to at least 110 percent of GDP by 2036. Before the United States reaches the 100 percent Debt to GDP threshold, no investor, foreign or domestic, will be willing or able to purchase our debt at any interest rate. The combination of political and social instability will swallow everything – including your savings. And yet, unlike Barack Obama, neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump have focused on the rising ratio of Debt to GDP or the risk it presents. No more credit card shopping for Congress and the American people. We can't pay the bill!
Donald Trump Thinks like the CEO of a Major Corporation. He is articulating the objective (goal) and then listing the major obstacles that must be overcome to reach it. There was a buzz in the checkout line at the grocery store – even the gym. Heads were nodding in agreement whether people were politically to right or left of Trump.
