This Essay Is A Satire About The 2003 California Elections.

650 words - 3 pages

Two Week ElectionIn respects to the highly successful California recall election, I would like to propose a new amendment to the U.S. Constitution. As Americans, we are tired of seeing the same face as a political figure everyday, week, month, and year. Just like how our eating, recreational, and even sexual habits change, people should have the ability to change government officials. It would be beneficial for the country to be able to elect officials in a shorter amount of time.

I propose having a voting booth, and booth operator, in every liquor store throughout the country. Have a voting booth in a liquor store ensures that everyone voting is of voting age. This might be a costly process, but we can not put a price on democracy. This will create jobs, and if we could trademark the voting experience, we would be able to license it to liquor manufacturers. Obviously, the licensing of voting will be a fee based process, which will subsidize the cost of the voting process, relieving some of the imposing income taxes. Manufacturers can use this to their advantage. Placing "Voting is cool" on a bottle of Vodka and centering it next to the voting booth, might...
