There is no "for sure" fix to our system but i have ideas.
-Set a maximum limit on how much can be spent on a Campaign. Regardless of where the money comes from, once the limit is reached thats it. No more. No
Super Pacs, no personal money, nothing. Remove the ability for the Rich and the ones with rich friends from buying their way into office (Romney,
Obama, W Bush ect)
-Remove the ability for Congress to aprove their own raises. Have it be a bill that is sent to the President. Then if they sign it during an economic
downturn, they get the bad rap. Obviously congress will approve their raise every single time. They're greedy. Take that away from them.
-Force all primaries/caucuses to be open primaries/caucuses. We should be allowed to choose our President and that should include choosing every
candidate regardless of party. The Party leaders don't want to lose influence to the members of the other party who might vote for their weakest
candidates, to throw the vote. But if its allowed for both sides it would go a little way in deconstructing the massive influence of the Party Leaders
and the parties themselves. Besides, if a person is running for an office that oversees the WHOLE country then everyone should have a say if they can
run or not. The only advantage to closed primaries is to maintain the two party system.
-Supreme Court Justices should run for their office just like Presidents and Congressmen. Since the only one who can veto Congress is the Pres and the
only ones who can rule a law as unconstitutional is the Supreme Court and the Justices are chosen by the President, it creates an imbalance of power
between the branches. If we want the PEOPLE to have the real power, put the choice in the peoples hands.
-If a major news outlet covers a specific candidate, then they should be forced to cover the other candidates with the exact same amount of air time.
The end goal would hopefully be that they would be discouraged from talking to or covering any of them specifically since they would have to track
down every other candidate and cover them as well.
-Voter Fraud should be considered Treason, and the punishments should be very severe. Things like handing out fake slates at a GOP should be
considered voter fraud.
-If there is a screwed up ballot and suspicion of voter fraud (I'm looking at your Florida 2000) then there should be a revote, not a recount. If the
turnout is less, so be it. Those who care enough to go and vote should have their voices heard. Supreme Court should never get involved in the process
EVER!!!!!!!! If there is a legitimate tie, i would call for a revote as well over a recount or allowed congress to cast the tie breaker. Politicians
should NEVER EVER have any control over who gets in, even if its rare.
-We should base winners on the popular vote and remove the electoral college.
-When politicians are impeached they should actually be removed from office.
These are just some, i could go on and on and on with ways we can make our system better or more balanced.
