The cartoon above portrays what initially made America great in the 1950s, 1960s, and early 1970s. In case you missed the related article titled “What Made America Great?“, here’s what you will learn by reading it:
- How our great wealth was consolidated into the hands (and bank accounts) of the business owners who make the biggest campaign contributions.
- How campaign money is used to herd voters like sheep.
- How to defeat the divide-and-conquer strategy used by political insiders of both parties.
- How we can restore prosperity and greatness to America.
In the future, the divide and conquer strategy explained in that article will be defeated. How? By requiring that a winner must get more than half the votes. Alas, this simple rule cannot be imposed yet. Why? Because virtually all democracies (in Europe, Asia, and North America) currently use primitive single-mark ballots, which allow only one mark in each race. That’s not enough information to always yield a winner who gets more than half the votes.
Fortunately we do have another option. It has these three parts:
- Vote in primary elections, not just general elections.
- Do not waste your vote on “can’t-win” candidates!
- Help others learn basic history, such as what made America great at the end of World War Two.
In this time of frustration with what goes on in Washington DC, please be a hero by sharing these insights with others. Especially the importance of not wasting votes on “can’t-win” candidates. Read more here.
