    Complicated things (like a 1,900 page health care bill) almost always fail. Simple things on the other hand usually work without a lot of effort.

    So -- how to get people to focus on what's important when deciding how our country will be run, and by whom?

    Simple.

    Change the day that taxes are due from April 15 to July 2nd. Next, move the day for having state and national elections from November to July 3rd.

    Doing this, politicians will have to address how they plan to spend the money people pay in taxes at exactly the time that people are most sensitive to paying money to the state and Fed.

    So it's simple -- pay taxes on the 2nd, vote on the 3rd, and then celebrate our great country on the 4th of July.

    Simple.
