I wonder if anybody still looks at this, it doesn't really seem like it. Anyway after watching the democratic investigation into the 2004 election, I have a few additions to the Project Phoenix/Phoenix Party platform. Elections should be on Satuardays, we are one of the few countries that conducts elections this way. In addition, it should be a national holiday, giving as many people as possible the day off, most notably all federal employees and hopefully some private companies would work half days or take the day off.

I no longer am opposed to the electoral college( well I am but I am postponing my objections). Essentially, until technology becomes more accurate and voter irregularities are less frequent or better handled; we will need the electoral college to avoid massive nationwide recounts. However, I think that the problem might lie in the fact that we still operate in a federalist government. As much of a unifer as federalism, it is a major divider. I think the states need to be far more subordinate of the federal government. But that is a different discussion, for a different day. Anyway I think maybe 1 vote for each state would be better than 25 here and 3 there.

SO what do you think, are you out there? Am I talking to myself. Come on people.

I agree that election day should be a national holiday. It seems like common sense to me.

Not too sure where I stand on the electoral college.
