Americans Elect Nominee Process Underway

Updated on February 7, 2012

The initial public offering for Americans to draft a Presidential Candidate has begun its unchartered journey. The traditional two party practices may yield to technological progress in this much anticipated experimental on-line voice of the people. Americans Elect overcame their first obstacle toward the realization of this lofty goal through the success of placing a third party candidate on all 50 state ballots.

Any registered voter is eligible to participate in the candidate selection process. Presently the number of delegates involved to this degree exceeds 360,000. The common denominator shared by those looking for change is lending a voice to the people’s concerns. The information available on a wide variety of prospective nominees is specific and extensive.

American’s from all political affiliations have unified in a time of divisive negative and extremist views which have succumbed to a stagnant and broken political system. This venue offers another option, preeminently, the people choice of whom they consider a leader. The frustrated electorate requesting more options may have been answered.

Presently over 50 candidates have been drafted. Some of the names of this diverse political spectrum include Buddy Roemer, Michael Bloomberg, Warren Buffett, Ron Paul and Condoleezza Rice. An interesting twist for the eventual Presidential nominee is the requirement to pick a running mate from a different political party.

This is America’s best chance to reclaim our democracy. If you are thinking of not voting this election, you may be passing on an opportunity to make your own political statement. The eyes of the world are looking at ‘We the People’ to right the wrong of our misguided leaders.

      Thanks professor. Needless to say I look forward to your comments. But in the words of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers; "The more I see, the less I know..." Gerrymandering has me bumfuzzled. All the more reason to start anew.

      Sad to say, I had no idea this was all going on. Guess I have had my head stuck in the Western Civ textbook. Thanks for bringing us all up to speed. It may be an interesting election. :)

      BUT this is a Constitutional Republic---Not a Democracy.

      I think so. Going forward are plans to add third party on-line candidates for U.S. House and Senate seats. In fact, there were discussions reaching a fever pitch regarding the inability to achieve that very goal this election cycle. Eventually, the participants would like to have on-line third party candidates for State congressional elections and Gubernatorial races.

      Thanks for your comments Edgar. Feel free to jump in. All are welcomed.

      This is a fascinating idea. We are at 100 years or so since we've had multiple parties and/or candidates getting much attention during an election. I believe that a democracy depend on fresh ideas or it rots from inside out. Good Article!

      Democracy will com from the majority, meaning the people, not the minority. A multi-faceted political scene symbolizes pluralism or at least a more reliable representation of the American people!

      Good hub!
