  •  My wish for future elections: A National Voting (8+ / 0-)

    Day that is a paid holiday like Thanksgiving and Christmas. If it is too expensive to have as a paid holiday, legislators decide, then it should be a national holiday anyway.

    The second wish is for publicly-funded elections, so money won't impact the vote as much as it does presently. That means a constitutional amendment. Another wish is for a $100 tax rebate for everyone who votes. I think positive reinforcement to vote is better than a punitive measure.

    Finally, there could be a fifty-state competition as to who has the highest percentage of citizens who vote, with a statewide award to be determined. That could be federal funding for a needed instate project like a bridge or highway repair or something that benefits all members of the state.

    With some creativity, we can increase the vote and get the money out of politics.

    There are many adoptable cats and dogs being rescued around the country. You can save a life by adopting one.
