Just make it a 6 year term and no re election, 6 year is enough to make a difference and not long enough to fill up your pockets with billions of dollars.

How about local city positions are filled like jury duty. Your name gets picked, you serve on the city council for a year or two. Totally random.
"Ah man, I got called to serve on the city council..."
"Well, it's more interesting that jury duty..."
Just an idea I had.

I totally agree. Especially with the electoral college nonsense. Why does my vote need to get filtered? Why are the Koch brothers allowed to give so much money to political interests? Is this legal? Is this justified? Is it part of the Constitution?
Why is the Supreme Court so partisan? How and when did it start?

Something else I thought of is to teach politics from birth...
Like English, Maths & Science...
The old excuse of "you'll need these when you grow up" has never been more true than when it comes to politics.
