Potentially there will be 10 charges against Trump, including the Espionage Act violation.
Q: What weaknesses in our existing system have allowed all these Trump nightmares to happen? How can we improve our system?
There are two wake up calls to ALL Americans. I am speaking as an American who loves our democracy, NOT as a partisan voter. It doesn’t matter anymore whether the team you identify with is Republican or Democrat, like in a football game, whether you root for 49ers or Green Bay is pointless when the RULES OF THE GAME is going to be disregarded, destroyed, there are no winners or losers - we all lose when elections are no longer fair and honest.
The first wake up call: our election system needs some extremely URGENT changes:
(1) certification of state election results by PARTISAN secretaries of state: This is a political ticking time bomb, a tinder box. Solution: New federal laws must be passed ASAP to mandate all 50 states’ certification process to be checked and balanced by each state’s representatives from all political parties, to be live streamed, completely transparent, devoid of any partisanship;
(2) gerrymandering: both Democrats and Republicans have committed this dishonest and corrupt gerrymandering, which is a cancer on election integrity. Solution: New federal laws must be passed ASAP to completely ban gerrymandering.
(3) rank choice voting! OMG, this is SO important, to truly represent the underrepresented majority in the middle, whose voice is getting drowned by extremes on both the far right and the far left. I previously simplified and explained about rank choice voting in this blog, video, and podcast - it’s Part II of “What Caused the Insurrection: the Seven Headed Monster”. For details, please read “The Politics Industry: How Political Innovation Can Break Partisan Gridlock and Save Our Democracy”, written by Harvard Business School strategy expert Michael E. Porter, and with a unique business perspective by Katherine M. Gehl, founder of Institute for Political Innovation.
(4) Get rid of the electoral college: It is NOT that hard to hold a national referendum! The vast majority of Americans across party lines want to get rid of it. Once the electoral college is gone, we don’t need the #1 I mentioned above, since there is no need for state certification checks and balances. (
5) Remove the Presidential pardon power: it conflicts with the principle of no one is above the law, thus unconstitutional.
(6) The presidential power is NOT like that of an imperial king, we must impose checks and balances to limit it in various aspects.
(7 ) term limit for Supreme Court Justices, - 18 years. AND more, as listed by Stanford Professor Larry Diamond’s call to action in his book: “Ill Winds: Saving Democracy from Russian Rage, Chinese Ambition, and American Complacency”.
The second wakeup call: What weaknesses in our system have allowed a con man, a pathological liar, a narcissist psychopath to go this far?
