The weekend before the general election and I would like to illustrate what the election is and what it accomplishes.
I have tried to get Americans to re-connect with the civics that they need to be productive citizens of the system.
Sadly our media is way too busy trying to influence the election than they are trying to educate the voter…..
This article is from the BBC and could teach the American media a little something about civics.
The US president has a huge influence on people’s lives both at home and abroad, so when the next election is held on 3 November, the outcome will matter to everyone.
The US political system is dominated by just two parties, so the president always belongs to one of them.
Since civics is a disappearing subject this type of article should be in every newspaper web site and printed edition for the last month before the polls open.
Maybe then Americans would learn about their system and stop trying to destroy it with their ignorance.
“Good governance never depends upon laws, but upon the personal qualities of those who govern. The machinery of government is always subordinate to the will of those who administer that machinery. The most important element of government, therefore, is the method of choosing leaders.” ~ Frank Herbert
