Want to know why the Two Party System isn’t working anymore? And, more importantly, what to do about it?
At The Center Strikes Back, we believe the dysfunction Americans have in their government is a result of the dysfunction we have in our politics.
In other words, we believe we Americans have the non-productive behavior from elected officials (and the resulting poor outcomes from government) we have because of the system we use to elect those officials. We will have the behavior and the outcomes so long as we continue to use the system. If we want to change the behavior and the outcomes, then we have to change the system first.
Put another way, the true source of our troubles is the ballot system we use. If you don’t want to be forced to choose between the lesser of two evils when you vote, then you need to join with us in demanding a system that will offer you more than two choices.
This Blog provides you the data you need to understand not only why this is truly the lever to grab if you want more effective and efficient government, but how to explain it to others and join in the efforts to make the needed changes.
We strive to be as brief as possible, but the hard fact is you cannot explain the complexities of what’s wrong and how to fix it in 140 characters or less. Our primary means of doing this is using current events to explain why a current controversy exists and how a solution could be found if we had a better system in place in a free weekly Ezine. (And, of course, it would be helpful if you read our book or listen to our DVD).
Deluded caterwauling to the contrary, we do not need a Constitutional Convention, Constitutional Amendments, extreme interpretations of the Constitution and the Founders intent, or term limits to make things better. Government is a business we run for our mutual benefit. The reason it’s not running very well is our hiring processes are screwed up. If we will fix the hiring processes, then everything else can be sorted out.
Although this Blog serves as storage for our free Weekly Ezine, we urge you to get your own personal copy by subscribing to the Ezine at our website, www.TheCenterStrikesBack.org (You can also order our books and DVD there. In addition, we recommend illuminating books for you to read.). We also have a Facebook page at Facebook.com/TheCenterStrikesBack.
