In the section on: Electoral reform for a better democracy, I see a problem.

5. Eliminate all ballot access laws and rules that discriminate against smaller parties and independents, and otherwise place undue burden on the right of citizens to run for office.

I see some problems with this, in that if this is the Federal Government telling States how to run elections for State races, then States Rights Advocates are going to get up in arms.

Sanda added: Unless I am educated differently, I tend to object to term limits. I think it is useful to have people around with history. If they are not doing a good job, their constituents should not re-elect them, yet I know being an incumbent is overwhelmingly effective for a candidate . . . unless they are doing a bad job. I could have my arm twisted on this one. Well I did my own research on this and when I see who opposes term limits, I wonder if I am in the right camp.
