Think of the benefits of frequent elections

Success - Article sent! close

I read this morning that the presidential campaign alone has resulted in $2 billion dollars being spent. This does not count all of the other federal and local elections.

The United States Postal Service is enjoying record income. In order to keep money flowing, we need to have a presidential election every year but retain the two-term limit. The post office becomes solvent, all the money being spent on election campaigning trickles down to the rest of the country, and we all lose some weight due to the number of interruptions we experience during meal time answering robocalls. I think it would work.
