The party in power in congress, or the White House, should not matter. Wait a minute; that is a pretty bold statement, one may argue. The truth is that it really is not as bold a statement as one may think.
If congress had the power to pass legislation to the President and he had the power to pass that same legislation on for the approval of all registered voters through an online majority vote, would the party in power in congress, or The White House really matter? The answer to that long winded question is “NO”.
In fact, the more diversity in congress and men or women who file through the Oval Office every four to eight years, the better off we are as Americans. We need the diversity of ideas, but the majority of registered voters must have the final word before legislation is enacted.
Now wait just a minute, you say. That is not the way our founding fathers wrote the Constitution. True, but our founding fathers did not want women to have voting rights, nor African Americans. Way back in 2008 one woman actually snuck into the Presidential campaign and an African American actually won the election that year…go figure.
None of the founding fathers sent emails, paid bills online, or posted their profiles on match.com. The Constitution would have been written much differently today than it was written by the founding fathers. In fact, women and African Americans would participate in writing it if it were penned today.
Since times have changed since the Constitution was written, there is a tool which can be used to fix imperfections in the Constitution. That tool is called a Constitutional Amendment. It is a tool that is not used frivolously and must be ratified by three fourths of the United States before it is considered a part of the Constitution.
A Constitutional Amendment is appropriate at this time. All registered voters must be afforded the opportunity to approve all legislation passed by congress and the President, before that legislation becomes law. The online majority of registered voters must be the final voice.
Congress and the President of the United States are .000004% of all registered voters. Forget their respective party affiliations. We must give the American people the final voice. It can be done very easily and efficiently through an online vote.
Would a majority of voters have voted for the bank bailout? Would a majority of voters have voted for the current health care bill? Would a majority of voters have voted for the stimulus bill? We do not know, but the majority certainly should have voted for those bills and every other bill offered by congress.
