Nor a group of men. The President, and all of our elected officials are public servants. Their job is to serve us, and if we don't like the job they
do, we fire them. If we really want a stable America that is democratic and strong, we should pass the following bills:
1. Set up internet, television and telephone voting
So every American citizen can vote from their home for president, congress, governor, etc. More of us voted for "American Idol" than voted in the
last Presidential Election. We're not lazy, we just want our public servants to do their job and make our government more accessible to us. And we
want to vote on bills in front of the congress like they do in Switzerland. That would be a government "By, for and of the people".
2. Employees have the same voting power as management and owners
Every American citizen who works for a company has a vote in all matters of that company that pertain to them directly. So their jobs can't be
exported and their retirement can't be gambled away. Personally, I'd make it an act of treason for an American company to profit from the labor and
raw materials of another country. Keep it all at home, and everyone works, and no other countries got us over any oil barrel.
3. Limit the ages of President and congress to 25 - 45
Young people should run the place. People whose whole lives are ahead of them, not us sad old white guys. By the time we're 45 we've figured out how
to jimmy the system to make money for ourselves. No public servant should ever know how to do that. When we're 50 we need a pill to get a woody, and
we start drooling over girls young enough to be our daughters. We don't need all that crap in the way when we're trying to balance a budget and fix
people's homes when they get washed out. Besides, young people respect their grandparents more and get along better with other races and other
4. Those who have to go to war, are the ones who vote on going
It's only right, and you know it. The ones who may die, and the families that may lose them should be the only ones who decide to send in troops.
They have the most to risk. Let the American people decide this, not some politician. Have we learned this one yet? And the vote should be repeated
every 6 months, just to keep their progress on track.
