Tired Of Campaigning Commercials, Unkept Promises, And More Negative Lies Then Informative Descriptions?
Refocusing Of Advertising
While this seems to be a good idea, we can rest assured there would be two teams of lawyers assembled for each side. One team to figure out how to take advantage the new system, anther to sue to get the thing changed back to the old broken confusing system. The team trying to figure out how to corrupt and exploit the system will be trying to figure out how to Influence the questions and how to gage what their candidate should answer. Incumbents would have less of an advantage then they currently do. As of now, the most important trait a candidate can have is name recognition. Ask the Kennedy’s, Bush’s, and Clintons to about that. But this approach will make ballots nameless. Unless you know exactly how to answer the questions the way your candidate did? You are not going to get assigned a pre-determined candidate.
With no names and parties on the ballot, people who are afraid to vote for a candidate they actually believe in, will lose that fear under this voting approach. As of now, people vote for party and players in politics with the same zeal as they root for their sports team. That would stop. Instead, they would be expressing their ideals and electing candidates who share them. The libertarian party would have just as much of a chance as the Republican Party. The country may wake up one day and find out that it is actually communist or, dare I say it, socialist. But a release from being controlled by fear and spurred on by divisions and hatred would be truly set the place free.
