We've already seen what happens when most of the country doesn't vote - but, we're still here. People on both political sides have talked about how our election process needs to be fixed, updated or whatever. The topic often comes up, but after elections are over - it doesn't get talked much about again until the next election comes. If we took the time to alter our voting processes for the better - more people might come out to vote because they'll trust the process & feel that their vote will actually count. This 'movement' could become the new tea party, LoL! What do you think?

Most people actually think they elect the president and have no idea what or why the EC even is. Eliminating it won't make people any less ignorant. The system works fine, people need to adjust to it, not the other way around.
The officials need to uphold the constitution we would not have parties, conventions, and the rest of the corruption in government. The people WOULD question every elected official on the constitution prior to their being considered for electing.
There's nothing wrong with our govt. The problem is that those who run it are human and have human faults. And guess what, those faulty people running it were put there by the American voters. So where does the real problem reside?
The People are the government of the USA and need to take the responsibility the constitution provided us over who We Choose and
Elect to accomplishing the Preamble's intention. We allowed the governors to become corruption; studying it changes it
The people are NOT the govt of America & the constitution onlyprovides for us to elect the officials who are actually responsibility for picking the president. The underlying "we"of the"preamble"you mention is often misinterpreted to mean everyon
I understand, you can not comprehend that era's wording, you are entitle to your lack of understanding. The people elect them and DEMAND impeachments per Article 2.4 and Amendment 10 although I am the only person I know to attempt to use is.
Art.2,sec.4:The Pres.,Vice Pres. and all civil Officers of the United States,shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for,and Conviction of,Treason,Bribery,or other high Crime
The high crime you want to impeach them for is only in your imagination
Perjury, felony, a High Crime above Misdemeanor; 9/11, treason none sought to punish makes all electorate treasonous per Article 3.3 and Amendments 10 gave both to The People since states follow fed's corruption. You're asking "what High Crime"?????
Valid example, yes.Things like that have always gone on and no one did anything about it then either.Seems the evolution of the concept of what is actionable has superceded the law itself. Perhaps Bush's "it's just a piece of paper" is true.
I'm working on an impeachment order to get everyone out of government's leadership positions except the 4 I'll use to purge government of its corruption due to 9/11 and wish I could because of WW 1 & 2 and Viet Nam.
Well, you've got more guts than most, I'll give you that! Just be watchful of winding up on some govt. "watchlist". These days it doesn't take much to get a person flagged as a terrorist. And I'm sure you know what happens then. Good luck.
I've been there and have already had several attempts on my life that failed, I AM THAT I AM is protecting me to achieve e my destiny. https://hubpages.com/politics/Why-And-How-The-US-G... is a version of it.
Since voting does not directly elect the president it absolutely would not matter if you "boycotted" the election. The status quo rules here, not personal opinion. Become an American citizen&learn the process then talk about system rectifications
If we agree with your 1st sentence, 2/3rds of voters who stayed home bcuz they didn't like either candidate committed treason. We can do that again to make them re-analyze & update our system even if its only 4 tech & consistency across state
Simply not voting because 1 dislikes the choices is not treason,its neglect of civil responsibility. Boycotting elections is an attempt to undermine the system which IS treasonous. Systemically; anything short of a revolt has no chance for change.
