68. 3rd world countries with illiterate and semi-literate populations don't have a problem with voting.

Why do we? Because we make a simple thing like voting very complicated. Why do we do that? The easier to rig the vote to get the "winner" our owners want. Take a look at the current Democratic primary for a case in point.
I think we need to institute the same techniques that these 3rd world countries use. Paper ballots, with pictures of the candidates besides the names and when you vote, you dip an index finger into the ink well. (Middle fingers works too.)

Get rid of the caucuses, delegates and the electoral college also. Direct voting, instant run offs. Yeah, we can do this, if we have a mind too.
