    An outstanding good article! It is nice to see effort towards resolving this most critical problem.

    One thought I would add to what was presented here. America needs election reform, there is no doubt of that. The system in play is not well trusted and teetering on the edge of failure. One element of that mistrust is caused by the presence of professional advertising agencies managing the media presentation of the candidates. By whatever means available to them they are contracted to sell a candidate to the public. The problem with that is that truth told about the only thing Americans trust less than a politician are the promises intimated by the nuanced and subtle presentations of the advertising industry.

    Seriously. Everyone already knows Chevy’s Corvette is a fast little road-rocket, but no one has ever found that beautiful blonde on the options list. To counteract this issue America should adopt regulations governing the nature of political campaigns… limit their duration and demand substantive, issue based content rather than continue to allow meme maker sound bite advertising to dominate the scene. The former allows an informed choice, the latter just increases the volume in the social media echo chambers.
