How's that working out so far?
I am sure we could come up with a mechanism to determine when it's time for a change.

Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss?
Perhaps running for public office should be a requirement for suffrage. If you don't play the game, you can't.
Term limits for all public offices would be good too.
...the same thing that was suggested 100 years ago... 200 years ago... 300 years ago...
My opinion is a gigantic part of the problems is that we try to tackle modern issues with old ideas. All our ideologies, political philosophies are mostly approaching their 100th birthday. And they've never worked, never served anybody well, they're just creating additional problems and divisions.
What I'd suggest is...
if you go in with a net value of 100 grand you leave with a net value of 100 grand if you have more then the rest goes into the community fund for all project.

I've always wanted to see a move to voting over issues not personalities. So much energy is wasted and power given to individuals with the financial ability to promote themselves. The results would change as society evolves and the implementation could be carried out by qualified workers for average wages based on experience. Why is Trudeau running our country? Everybody voted for him here purely because he's prettier than Harper and everybody wanted Harper out... there were no other options. Piss poor system that favours the rich. Trudeau came out of nowhere to run and this is something that only the wealthy and well connected can do. It's nothing more than bought monarchy. Time for a change.
