One wonders what our Founding Fathers would have thought about the incredible cost of elections in the United States of America? I assume that other than Justice Scalia there are few in this nation who actually believe the “original intention” of the wig headed men two hundred years ago created the Constitution intended that one could purchase a seat in Congress. So, why not just admit that seats are for sale and instead of submitting we Americans to the nonstop voices filling our TV sets with words of doom if we vote for the other guy, why not just have an auction and allow whoever has the dough in a congressional seat of a state to simply openly purchase a victory in the allegedly thing we term, an election?
1. In each congressional seat allow an open auction. The one submitting the highest bid simply is the next congressmen.
2. Money from these auctions could be used for some meaningful task such as new roads or money for schools.
Let’s end the pretense of a “free election” in which the person who offers intelligent ideas is elected. Those days are over.
In fact, why not just auction of the United States of America to the Koch Brothers?
