We need campaign reform.
There should be a time limit. It is insane to start the next campaign the very next day after an election. Our elected officials should spend their time in Washington to do the job they were elected to and get paid for by the taxpayers. It would be easier to judge them by their accomplishments while in office.
A shorter campaign time would also save an enormous amount of money that could be used for many different needs. It would also save the candidates’ energy, which could be used for working on the job.
A shorter campaign time would also help the public stay interested in the subjects at hand and increase voter participation.
As a naturalized citizen, I value my right to vote. It is a privilege I treasure.
