Senator Bernie Sanders has proposed a bill that ‘Democracy day’ be a national holiday so that everyone can make it out to vote. By having the day off work, the hope is that people will vote. This will not cure voter apathy though as many feel politicians are all liars and crooks and say will do this or that to be elected and do nothing when get in office. That is why they don’t vote. it is sad though as it is a right we had to fight for. Most people are too busy to keep up with what politicians are doing or not doing and don’t know the people that are running. Many are completely out of touch, like our senators with what the average American is going through now a days as they are making salaries of $100,000 and are still practicing law and bringing in more revenue.
Philips, a leader in electronics makes amplifiers, besides items like dvds, antennaes and tvs. The Philips RF Amplifiers are one example of something Philips specializes in. Siemens mri parts as we know, amplify the sound, along with speakers and a microphone, so it is louder so one can be heard in a large room. Many musicians and speakers use amplifiers to be heard. The Philips RF Amplifiers use tubes, similar to the old, large televisions of days gone by.
Along with Democracy Day, aka, election day, as a day off to vote, on November 4th, other effective strategies to get people to vote are: emailing them online, having candidates on SNL and debates so people can learn what the candidates stand for. Also instead of the mudslinging that goes on in the campaign process, via tv,radio,mailings,news paper ads,that is so annoying, clearing stating what the candidate has done in the past and will do in the future is enough.
Instead of the candidates campaigning across the united States, wasting money and time, why don’t they donate the money to charities the most in need like mental health, homelessness, education, boys and girls clubs, parks,gun control? They could meet at one place that we all could tune into via tv or internet and view and listen to them. That is plenty.
