Yes, we do need some extreme vetting.
Not of immigrants, but of candidates vying for the job of representing constituents’ interests.
Looking at the individuals sitting in the House of Representatives and the Senate, not to mention the Oval Office, perhaps a more careful and stringent vetting process before qualifying to put their name on a ballot might have yielded better quality representation.
Whose name goes on a ballot is under State jurisdiction. Perhaps it’s time to jolt our state legislatures into action and demand measures that protect the voters’ interests.
