Great idea and I could not agree with you more.
The only problem I see is that the ones who set or change the rules are the same ones who are in power and do not want to make these changes.
They know the first thing to happen would be their being voted out of office.
After all, that would be the first step in making the changes needed to get this country back on track.
Come to think of it, we can do a lot within the current system. It will take atleast four elections, or eight years.
Each member of the House of Representative must be elected, or re-elected, every two years. Each Senator does the same every six years, and the
President every four. Yes, in know, this would be only six years total, but an extra cycle would make a stronger statement.
IF EVERONE, would "vote-out" the incumbants, reguardless of party or name, for the next four elections we would have sent a message. At the very
least we would have an opportinity to start getting people who were interested in doing the job they are "hired" to do.
This will make "term limits" unnecessary and we could start over afresh.
I am not dumb enough to think it will ever happen, but I do like to dream.
