Is the political election system of the U.S. the laughing stock of the world? It sure is the laughing stock of millions of Americans. Why does it take so long to decide who we, the public, want to be our next presidential nominee?

Every day, every hour, every minute we are bombarded with, "I'm the chosen one to be your next leader." They all promise you the moon. Just what we need a new moon, which is always dark on the other side.

Sometimes you wonder is "Freddy Krueger" disguised as the next nominee! They tear each other apart like destroying a jigsaw puzzle with the wrong pieces. They tell us they are conservative but spend millions of dollars on ads to convince us they are frugal. They tell us everything is wrong with the United States but if we vote for him/her everything will be fixed. They all seem to have some kind of fairy dust to sprinkle to make everything just the way they want.

While they keep whining so they can win, most of us have made up our minds months ago before the onslaught of the gibberish that contaminated the air.

Why don't we just have a lottery? Everyone 18 years or older, a citizen of the U.S. can have their name in the hopper. On Election Day the first name drawn will be president the second name will be vice president. This will save a lot of wasted money, wasted time and wasted words that were a waste before they were even spoken.

Oh, for the good old days that never happened. Oh, for the good old day that will stop in November. But we know the day after the election the same process will start again and never end.

There has to be a better way! The whole process, maybe it should be the "hole" process is like playing a video game gone wild and you lost even before the game started.
