Democracy is dead in America.
Representatives no longer represent.
I’m reminded of the classic comedy featuring Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle . . . Young Frankenstein.
Why was the Frankenstein creation a monster, disloyal, cold-hearted and destructive?
He had a bad brain.
A bad brain results in bad behavior.
The brains of our elected officials, the monsters who roam the two legislative bodies of our government, the Senate and the House of Representatives, have been corrupted by money, effectively destroyed, are now lacking the capacity to fulfill their constitutional mandate. They no longer are controlled by the citizens who elected them to office. They now are exclusively the lapdogs of the rich and powerful — disloyal, cold-hearted, destructive.
I call this procedure a lapdogectomy.
The lapdogs must go. They must be replaced with good brains, those individuals who are willing to respond to the needs of their constituents — those candidates who will guarantee to us the voters that they will do the job we elect them to do.
How do we know who has a bad brain and who has a good brain?
The candidate contract is actually better than an MRI or CATSCAN in this respect.
After we the people have decided what issues are critical — based on numerous credible issue polls, there already is a good list of what the public wants done but isn’t getting done — we formulate candidate contracts spelling out in no uncertain terms what we expect our elected representatives in Congress to do IMMEDIATELY UPON ARRIVAL in the nation’s capital. The contracts are presented to every candidate for office in the coming election.
Candidates with bad brains refuse to sign them.
Candidates with good brains gladly sign them.
We only vote for people with good brains.
Replace bad brains with good brains.
Could it be any easier?
