All votes are cast at the cash register. By the time candidates make it through the gauntlet of money, it really doesn’t matter all that much which one is ‘chosen’ by the electoral college. The money is already counted and the lobbyists lined up to manipulate the winners long before the elections even happen. If you want change, keep it in your pocket: sales taxes are less regressive than a dead planet. Eliminate the income tax (fairtax.org) and negotiate the rate and the prebate until the air and water are clean and a prebate provides everyone with tools and land to grow their own food.

Until that happens, the power of government is held in the hands of the income tax lobbyists, not the people, who choose to destroy the planet because it is the cheaper option.
