The fundamental rule of gamesmanship is that if you can’t win the game you’re playing, change the game! In this case, corporations are running the government, citizens have virtually no voice, and third party candidates are frozen out of the political process. That’s a process we can change, and one that we need to change.
Summary: Some otherwise impressive thinkers like George T. Will acknowledge that the American political system doesn’t represent minorities, but conclude that it is somehow a good thing. In fact, he asserted that minorities shouldn’t be represented, and, for that reason, electoral votes shouldn’t be proportionally allocated. This article aims to refute that notion, along with his assertion that it would be a mistake for Colorado to allocate its electoral votes proportionally among the competing candidates.

There is a happy medium, however. The goal of this article is to identify the proper role of government, to explain what it should be doing, and why.
At the same time, you may well ask: What’s wrong with “Alternative Medicine”?
The failure to look for deeper explanations is widespread among health practitioners—both mainstream and alternative. Fortunately, a younger breed of functional medicine practitioners are beginning to get it right.
A Call for SYMBIOSIS of Corporations and Government
Marx was a brilliant thinker who got a lot of things right. He clearly identified Capitalism’s major problem, but unfortunately he missed the solution. His big oversight led to a false dichotomy in theory, which in turn led to “dictatorial socialism” in reality (a bad thing), as opposed to “democratic socialism” (a very good thing, as I will argue).
