I registered my disappointment at the upcoming election in my last post but starting this month I will be in the process of a little activism which I hope will improve our nation’s politics.
I’m going to try and convince my county board to approve a resolution to call for non-partisan state legislature i.e. members are elected without party designation, just like county board members and other local government officials are across the state. If they approve it, hopefully it can become a resolution at next year’s Wisconsin County Association state convention. Ideally, Wisconsin state legislature would like Nebraska’s which is non-partisan or would be like Minnesota and Nevada’s legislatures used to be.
What dominates our politics now is akin to parlimentary system without a parliment. Party-line voting and political tactics within legislative systems has wrecked good public policy and made it hard for independent lawmakers to do what’s right when they are so worried about maintaining the “party line”. Such thinking, truly is a socialistic methodology that has crept into our nation’s governance and is the kind of threat George Washington warned us about in his Farewell Address, the so-called “spirit of the party” crippling government. Its why I’m supporting Michael Krsiean, independent for Congress on Tuesday and I’d like to thank Mike for influence on my thinking on this matter.
My latest article on Etherzone.com expands this topic. I hope you all can support me in this endeavor.
