The 2016 election cycle is over and frankly, America, you fucked up. I can’t mince words about it. I wrote about what I think needs to change as far as our election system last week and I am reposting them below with one addition. Get rid of the Electoral College. I am sorry, some dude in bumble-fuck Wyoming just doesn’t count. Liberals naturally congregate to cities where there is diversity and exchange of ideas, perspectives, and experiences. People who choose to isolate themselves and their minds should not impact those that try and make this world a better place. I plan to respond to this election by using something I am good at, technology. I have faith that it can ultimately bring people together and stop the anti-progressive elements of society.
The 2016 election cycle is almost over and with that we all hope to take a collective sigh of relief. What comes after, one ca n only wonder. Regardless, I take away three lessons from this past year and hope that we can chisel away at their underlying root cause in the hopes of repairing our broken political system. For me, it all starts upstream. The selection process is putting too many subpar candidates and undeserving people into office. So, all my suggestions impact the selection process. I have faith that if we can put the right people in office, they can at least try to work together versus pandering towards extreme members of a political base.
