SORT BY Relevancy
Plagued with infighting, corruption, deep differences in party ideologies between the parties and within the major political parties is it time to consider doing away with the Straight Party Voting System?
Looking at the major political parties in the United States (Republicans and Democratics) you would think it would be as clear as Tiffany crystal on how people will vote when they enter the voting booth. However, that line has blurred and the crystal has become cloudy.
Throughout the country there are groups pushing to make a change in the the process.
Join me this morning 8AM-10AM EST "In the Pickle BArrel" as we try to understand what is going on and what to do about it.
You are invited to express your views and opinions in the Chat Room or live by calling in at (toll-free) 1-855-236-2486.
I can not even begin to guess how many times I have been told things like...
"Bill our two party system is just not working"
"Our voting system needs an overall, It's all broken."
"Bill, we need open primaries." and the opposite, "We need to tighten up our primaries. The system is being abused."
This morning "In the Pickle Barrel" we will discuss these issues.
Hopefully, with your input, we will be able to determine what is right and what is wrong with our system of elections.Or, perhaps we will decide our system is okay.
Hope to see you at 7AM-8:30AM this morning "In the Pickle Barrel".

Voting is a fundamental right. In 2002, President George W. Bush signed into law the Help America Vote Act (HAVA). This legislation is aimed at improving the general election process and sets forth new requirements for state election officials to follow. This episode will focus on the requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and HAVA to make polling places accessible to people with disabilities. We will discuss accessible registration, effective communication, and voting aids for people with disabilities.
Ferguson is a city of 21,000 residents. This little city is 67% black 28% white, and others. On August 9, 2014 a young man, preparing to enter college on Monday August 12, never made it past August 9. This young man was killed by a police officer. The account given by the officer is that the young man was ordered to not walk in the street. It is said by the officer the young man refused to move to the sidewalk; words were exchanged, the young many reached into the patrol car to grap the officer and the office shot to protect himself. Based on the officers statement via police chief, the young man proceeded to run away, and the officer chased the boy and shot him several more times. The young man then lay dead, for 4 hours in the very street the officer attempted to prevent him from walking in. The reason for the now body of the young man to lay in the hot August street for 4 hours is known only to the police officers of the small town of 21,000 residents. The officer, Darren Wilson, has not been arrested, and no other person has been arrested. A person walking in the middle of a street is killed while running away from an officer, and the officer remains free, on paid leave. What does the death of a person mean to a city so small? To the majority of the people, the death is a tramatic experience and they want justice for the death of the young man. Mike Brown, who is not longer with us. To a few choice people the death of the young man, a black man, means peace has been disturbed in their small city and the few does not want the eyes of the world on their small city watching angry demonstrators.
I find something strange going on in Ferguson Missiouri. I will talk about some concerns in todays shows. Any listeners from Ferguson who know something about the voting there, please call in and let's talk about voting statistics in Ferguson Missiouri.

Voting is an opportunity to put people in place to improve the quality of your life. The right to vote is under attack. Voting initially was a right only for the wealthy White men. Unless citizens use the opportunity and vote, there is evidence that voting will strategically be afforded once again only to wealthy White men.
Voting is a matter of the mind. When we decide on who to vote for it should be based on issues and positions you calculate as best for you, yours and your community. If you do not like what you see day to day, vote to change your surroundings.
We get to vote local, statewide, and nationwide. Which one of these opportunities would you give up freely? You are giving up your vote every time you fail to vote. Your vote is needed and you wont see your needs and wants being met until you begin to exercise your right to vote.
Everything we do has some tie into how you voted or how you failed to vote. From the conception of life to inheritance taxes and everything in between. Voting is a mind activity not a heart activity. Love has nothing to do with voting. That's why voting is done in a booth with no eyes other than those of the voter. Do your civic duty and vote in every election and you will be instrumental in an improved society. From jobs, to healthcare, to increased minimum wages, ending Stand Your Ground, to keeping public schools open, to ending voter suppression.
