For instance this November, as it is a Presidential election, the ballot would pertain to Washington and would list the following choices – economy, education, balanced budget, taxes, immigration, health care, entitlements, term limits, environment, campaign reform.
Behind the curtain, each voter would select those five items that they feel are the most important to fix/change. Once tabulated (top five selected), this would give our politicians a clear message on what they need to do. Then we can evaluate their performance and decide whether to re-elect them.
Futhermore, this list would be generated by only those citizens who have the right to vote and use that right accordingly. Kentucky’s list would be created and voted on during the next election period, so there is no confusion about who is responsible for what.
