America desperately needs close to a dozen political reforms. But the very first step is to circumvent the stranglehold that corporations and their lobbyists have on the political process. Once that goal is accomplished, other reforms will be possible — and will happen rapidly.

The fact of the matter is that corporate money has hijacked the ballot box so, no matter who gets elected, it is corporations who actually win — to the ongoing and increasingly severe detriment of the average American. A voting advice system that uses directed social media, with subscriptions and filtering, can be implemented in a matter of months.

Such a system would revolutionize the election process, making money irrelevant to elections. Once we take money out of the election equation, government can return to being the ameliorating force on corporate activity that it needs to be, for society to prosper.

With such a system, people can choose advisors they trust. The system enables multi-party coalitions in cyberspace, and allows centrist candidates to be elected — instead of our current two-party system, which has us, as a society, lurching from left to right, and back again. The system appeals to voters because it’s convenient. It appeals to social activists and reformers because it levels the political playing the field and empowers them with a stronger political voice.
