Are you tired of trying to figure out if there's any real difference between Republican and Democratic politicians, and whether there's a difference between liberals and progressives, libertarians and anarchists, independents and moderates, or tea partiers and neoconservatives?

Are you fed up with being forced to chose between the lesser of two evils when electing a president, and are you afraid to cast a vote of conscience because the worser of two evils might get elected?

If you've answered yes to any of these questions, perhaps you might want to consider aligning yourself with others who share your concerns and whose political views extend across the spectrum.

The one thing we all have in common is that we are voters and we are sick and tired of our government being controlled by corporations and special interest groups who could care less about our happiness, our health, our families, our jobs, or our futures.

What would you call a political philosophy that focuses on the rights and interests of all voters? What terms would you use and how would they be defined?

Here are a few ideas:

Voterism

is the political belief that a legitimate government must be composed of and created by the voters who elect it, and that the primary purpose of such a government is to care for the needs, aspirations and interests of those who elect it.

A votocracy is a government organized to sustain the environment in which its voters live, maintain the economy in which they earn a living, and defend the rights of every individual to be secure in his or her person and property.

A voteristic government continually evolves by encouraging the informed opinion and participation of all potential voters in referenda to develop political policy, not law, and by the election of representatives who are an extension of the voters and who are committed to the effectuation of the policies established by the voters.

A voter centric government is one that is founded upon the belief that a free society depends upon the handwritten selection of representatives by voters who use hand-counted paper ballots and who celebrate all national elections with a paid voting holiday.

A voteric is a nation whose government is organized according to voteristic principles. It is one in which voting is a sacrament of the national political religion.

A voterian believes a voteristic government can only impose minimal legal restraint on the liberties of each voter in her or his pursuit of happiness.

A voterist believes a votocracy created and controlled by individual voters is the most favorable form of government.

Voterism

is not a political party. Rather, it is a way for independently-minded and concerned voters of every political persuasion to think for themselves.
