I agreed with him. Huh?
The congress is screwing both the left and the right.
These politicians are playing games making decisions that are not based upon constituent interestes, not based in the nation's interests. They're making decisions based on their personal interests, based on the goal of keeping their jobs forever. They all want to be Strom Thurmonds, becoming octogenarian legislators-- either that or Jim Greenwoods, grabbing high ticket CEO salaries working for the companies that used to successfully lobby them.
1- Institute term limits-- non-negotiable term limits.
Three two year terms for members of congress.
Two three year terms for senators.
Rotate the congressional terms just like senate seats are rotated.
Change the term of office for president to three years, with one second run allowed.
2-Clean up the voting system so it can't be gamed. No touch screens. Only paper ballots to be counted. No counts by computer.
4-Instant run-off voting, or something like it, where voters can pick their first choice, and then, if that choice isn't among the top candidates in the running, he is dropped and the second choice candidate is credited with your vote.
5-Equal treatment to third party candidates. This allows shifting coalitions, more like a parlaimentary system, for closer representation.
The goal is to throw out all the ancient incumbents, get legislators to start looking at the short term. This will get power back to the people.
The left and right can compete on political issues. But both sides want real representation, democracy, not patrimony or feudalism. Who knows, if the left and right join forces to clean up an incredibly unpopular congress, they may even find other ways to work together and pull America up by the bootstraps.
