It’s only 85 days until the first ballot of the Americans Elect presidential nomination, the first ever all-online presidential nomination in which a corporation will decide which candidates can run, the same corporation will run the election, and yes, the very same corporation is in charge of how the votes are counted.

According to the Americans Elect Draft Rules by which it proposes to run the nation’s first privatized online presidential nomination in 2012, anybody who’s constitutionally qualified to be President can ask Americans Elect for permission to run. Anybody can ask, but only some contenders will be allowed to run. The Candidate Certification Committee will get […]
