Everyone already wants to get rid of all the lobbiests and stuff..

So while I 100% agree and would include that in any attempted fixes, I really want to focus on something different that is probably just as important.



I think the best thing we could do is end all the celebrity and ONLY focus on functionality..

For example...

I would sell off every painting and piece of billion dollar furniture..

I would end giving politicians 50k to redecorate their offices..


Now ALL. Government buildings become plain FUNCTIONAL offices with cubicals and zero unnecessary eminenties..

The government only buys coach when flying or whatever the cheapest necessary item is

Hit send early.. will continue...

The Marx 10-Planks apply to most world governments.

And so does the worldwide central banking system.

Eliminate the 10-Planks system, and you will have the solution.

Remember all world social and financial crises have been caused by people with high educations.

It takes massive Left Wing authoritarian policies to make governments work.

The first chemically propelled projectile used in war was first used in China.

The modern gun was based off a german inventors early designs and whom studied under Leonardo Davinci. He probably copied Leos revolving sparking chamber filled with gun poweder "gun".

Leo learned the recipe for gun powder from arab and asian traders. They had tubes with single shot proto muskets.

you cant do any of those things or fix anything without addressing the most important issue , which is conflict of interest in congress,

you cant expect a congress that is riddled with conflict of interest to fix healthcare or any other issue.

if you are focused on any other issue besides conflict of interet in govt then you are the reason why nothing gets fixed

For a healthy change, I agree. Governments should operate at minimal costs, not like kings and queens.

Taxes
Pulling taxpayer money out of corporations
Allowing Joe Blow a chance at having a voice on the political stage. Not parties and donations.

Whomever runs on platforms that cross deep into each political spectrum is what is needed to properly represent Americans.

Umm, that will never happen. Neither Repubs nor Dems want that to happen or else they would've done it by now.

Also, it doesn't make sense for them to fly coach if they have urgent business to attend to. Just imagine the delay if there's an important emergency that requires congressional hearings or a vote but everyone has to fly in through coach. After all, members of Congress (and other highly ranked members of govt) also go on international trips. They also spend a lot of their time back in their districts.

End of every term a politician should face a jury.

The jury has to rank them

Excellent:
They get to rerun and get a 50% bonous

Good:
Get to rerun but only 20% bonous

Satisfactory:
Gets to rerun but no bonous

Poorly:
Barred from rerunning. 25% pay fine.

Terrible:
Barred from politics. 50% fine and investigation.


They should be judged by constitution, how well they represented there constituants and how well they kept promises.

Everything will be done under oath in a court so no lying!

A way to force congress to enact congressional terms limits would be a good start. Unfortunately most people don't and won't fire themselves.

Politicians are millionaires when they leave "service".

Your idea will do nothing, the lobby pays much better and is much scarier than the voter.
