Get rid of term limits which insures that only those who lack practical experience in governing are running the government, and instead focus on taking away the power of lobbyists who are more than happy to step in and teach (corrupt) all those newbie politicians in the art of getting things done--things which serve the agenda of the lobby. Highly paid, deep pocketed lobbyists are a virus that threatens the health of the concept of governance by the people, and they must be disarmed. Not eliminated, but their absolute power must be severely diminished.
for my state government, i would like to appeal amendment 1 of the NC state constitution. for federal government, i would like to see the disbandment of all political parties. also i would like to see the people becoming more involved in government. having the right to vote is not very much power at all
Change the regulatory measure to a more energy conserving method, utilizing every possible resource for the job most applicable. Then I would with others attempt to formulate semi-communal methods of benefits, yet still have a system based on the choosing of your own lifestyle, and the reciprocity of work vs wealth. Next I would try to minimize cultural suicide pills if you will, and bring about an end to those things which are degrading humanity.
As an individual or organizational... Since our country is facing an economic crisis i think as individual the govt should focus on more of the education...why? they need to cut the fee of much is the tuition fee now a days and a lot of students sometimes cant afford and they end up under grads. In other countries college is a must for job requirements but the level of education is really great and very advance. Another thing that govt should be focus more of the mortgage houses dues, need to cut the payment a bit lower, we eat, we have babies, we have other bills that we need to pay also... Please to all the leader we need some actions... Jobs jobs jobs since the economy drop the recession go down... A lot people lose their jobs we need jobs or people needs jobs. For the organization and companies please make it more reasonable all your employee are worth it. Give them some raise or gus some raise... Fir the foods their fetting abit pricey and sometimes a lot of people cabt afford to shop or do their groceries please drop the price a bit... Gas gas o ma gas... Their not cheap anymore need to cut the price of our gasssssss... I have a lot more to say that a lot of our government should be dealing with instead of starting their solution or their answer through the politician or big people or people in the positions...i think might as well focus the solution in the consumer or to the people before the big people of our countries we are the one who need and experience all this matter.. And who experience the reality the real deal whatever is happening to our. Economy... Please cut and make it ecerything better for us for our kids future peace......
give each person a set amount of campaign funds that is the minimal and maximum amount for campaigning. that creates a somewhat equal playing field. no donations, free airtime etc. - get rid of all organized crime ...i mean all organized political parties. - get rid of - get rid of ALL lobbyist! - all government has a one term term limit - no lifetime protection, insurance, pay, "retirement" etc. that is different from any other American citizen. _ taxed ( including social security) the same as all other Americans. - pay raises can only be voted on in a general election, and by the American people, not those holding a government office - a travel and expense account that is voted on by the American people and is dependent on the official job title. - no government official may lobby for any type of special interest group - no pillow-busting allowed. - pay rate would be set at $25,000 above the average of your last 5 years income as verified by your income tax returns for President, and by decreased amount for other government offices. - i think that would be a good place to start. -
Allow more than 2 political parties, Term limits on congress. make them pay for their own healthcare, transportation, etc., Reduce their salary to hourly wages, and dock their pay when they don't show up, while giving them just 2 weeks paid vacation. I would dissolve the speaker of the house position therefore allowing members of congress to openly discuss and reach solutions as a unified group. I would do away with the process of large corporations donating money and lobbyists, while still allowing individual voters to contribute. I would leave issues like healthcare, social security reform, and sending our money and troops overseas to a public vote. And finally I would make all federal politicians pay a much higher tax rate to help balance the budget, since they are the ones who decide how our taxes are spent and they are the biggest spenders. That's about it, but if anything else comes to mind I'll let you know.
You've received some excellent ideas, I would only add that there should be an election fund for all federal government elections. This fund would come from our tax dollars, say 0.02% of the current US tax income. This would be used by campaigns after the parties primaries and would eliminate the influence of corporations hand picking candidates that promote their cause over we the people. Now you should copy and send these ideas along to the white house ;)
