If I Had My Way
One Man's Opinion -- for what it's worth.

Subject: 2015022 - To whom it may concern!!

(This is my third attempt -- following is a copy of my previous attempt -- you people have lost me with your non-responsiveness.)

This is my second attempt to open some kind of discussion with Senator Sanders. I would assume that someone in the Sanders' organization is reading all the incoming mail and deciding which ones get to Bernie and which go to the round file.

Please, please -- whoever you are -- please forward this note to Bernie.

Senator Sanders:

So far your campaign has made good headway; however, it will not succeed in electing you as our next president without some drastic changes.

You are running a twentieth century campaign (twentieth meaning, one way communication). However, we now live in the twenty-first century (meaning two way communication). You must take advantage of that change by getting the voters engaged in some meaningful two-way unrestricted discussions. (Twitter and Facebook are restricted discussions designed for advertising purposes).

You need these kind of discussions to prove that you are the individual that can, and will, solve problems. Please, please -- do not make the mistake that Barack Obama made. He made all the right words before the election -- and failed to deliver, after the election. You have to deliver the right words and then convince the voters that you really mean what you say -- you have to prove your ability to solve problems -- by actually solving some before the election.

You must become involved in some two-way communication with the voters -- you must prove that it can be done!!

Getting Microsoft to buy into the type of software I am promoting would do the job quite nicely.

But first, I need some kind of encouragement -- that I, at least, have your attention, and participation, in the months ahead.

I don't wish to be melodramatic; however, we are talking about saving the world during the next presidential cycle -- you must win that election.

(It is all down hill from here without some major changes to your campaign.)

To be continued (of course)

Doug Skoglund

I don't provide for comments since that is a system designed to control the communication process -- I do provide an e-mail address!! (Please put a [MYWAY] in your title to get my attention).

BTW, I am working on a replacement system for individuals -- and I sure could use some help. Please see, a work-in-process.
