Most Americans are not aware that the Republican and Democratic parties have a two-fold monopoly of our American electoral process. Independent (unaffiliated) candidates, and minor (non-principle) parties, are not given automatic access to the election ballot. We must "attempt" to gain ballot access by collecting "petition" signatures (**any officially registered voter in Maryland, regardless of party affiliation or lack thereof, can sign a ballot-access petition). Have you ever tried collecting petition signatures? It's a difficult, time consuming, mundane and sometimes futile task. All a registered Democrat or Republican has to do is cut a check and boom, their name is on the Primary ballot, and whether they have "establishment" support or not.
Is this what the Constitution of the United States had in mind? Are you fearful of independent candidates or minor parties? Are independent candidates and minor parties somehow a threat to American society or somehow un-American?
What independent candidates and minor parties "ARE" is a threat to the Republican and Democratic establishments, which when taking the handful of wedge issues out of the equation are simply one or two shades of grey away from each other.
So, I need your help. Contact me and sign the petition.
Consider becoming a petition circulator by collecting petition signatures to whatever degree you feel comfortable with.
