I like the idea of random selections, devolve all bodies, create two new ones.
There is no longer political parties of left or right.
First the judiciary, one judge is chosen at random from each state, their job is to amend the laws that the political body passes to make them work
legally and rule by majority on legal and moral matters such as the death penalty and abortion for the entire country as each state no longer gets to
choose the most divisive issues. They serve for a 15 year term. They have a chairman judge, voted in by their peers who decide what order the cases
and laws they will deal with, but the laws passed by the new senate get priority. They rotate every 5 years.
Second at random one citizen representative from each state that has just graduated from university with at least a grade point average of 3 or higher
is chosen for a senate council. From their ranks they meet and vote on a chairman who would act for that body, this person has more power than the
rest as he can limit discussion on topics and call for votes, but they still only get one vote themselves. They serve for a 10 year term, so their
experience is not wasted. The chairman rotates by vote every 2 years, so this person doesn't get too powerful. There is no President.
Plebiscites can be held to decide issues as well but they need to pass by not just 50 plus 1 but 75%, this makes it so that half the country is not
left unhappy. It could be on something like pay a 15% flat tax rate and everybody gets free health care.
Lastly the media is banned from all political commentary, they are only allowed to report the news, no opinions on that news are allowed. So if a law
passes they report that it has passed and by what margin, no comments on what they think of the law or the people that passed it.
