There is alot of talk today about how our Govt. today is "broken" and needs to be "fixed". I am starting this thread to get an Idea of what Ideas
my fellow members might have to help improve our Govt.
Ill start the Ideas off with these:
I would like to see mandatory polygraph testing
done on all Govt. employees. Whether they be elected or appointed. Terms of tesing:
Once upon entering office or position, and once per week/month during said officials term of office/position. Sure polygraphs can be beat, but thats
easier said than done and would really help to curtail govt. corruption.
I would like to see Term Limits on ALL levels of Elected Office
From Local through Federal. Two terms is the limit.
I would like to see massive campaign reform
. Which includes a proposal to outlaw outside contributions all-together and in it's
stead use Federal funds to Equally Finance ALL respective Candidates on a Local,State,Federal level. Thusly, eliminating the Corruption that has
destroyed the true intention of lobbyism.
While I believe that Both the Special Interest Groups and the Business Community deserve a "Voice"; that voice should not be louder than that of the
single American Citizen(in regards to financial voice)
I would like to see The Ethics Amendment
- An Amendment that Places Ethical Principles as law of the land in how All employees -BY
LAW- must cunduct themsleves in EVERY situation. Example: A BILL that makes it cheaper to dump toxic waste in the ocean with a fine of 25,000 per day.
But it costs that same company 250,000 per day to dispose of the waste properly. a BILL like this would not be allowed to pass under the Proposed
I would like to see a review and Repeal of several Laws that directly contradict the Constitution.. example: The PATRIOT ACT.. I dont think
I even need to go into this one.
That is my starter list. I will add more Ideas when I have some more time.
I would Love to hear some Ideas from other Members As to what they think they would like to see take place in our Govt. today.
Thank you for your time
