  •  We don't need anything conservative (9+ / 0-)

    It might be good to have a congress that represents the people that elect it rather than special interests that just fund its campaigns.

    Given what little regard we have for our present government maybe its time for some new rules.

    If we had a SCOTUS that worked we could get a Congress that worked by eliminating campaign contributions as the unconstitutional bribes they are and then we might have shorter less expensive elections that don't require years to identify all the necessary funding. Justices on the Supreme Court should be subject to recall elections as well as impeachment and have term limits.

    We could also make serving in Congress a civic responsibility like being called up to serve in the military or on a jury; with candidates having to enter a lottery like they do in Maine to get a hunting license for a moose, and having to qualify by having taken an exam like you would to get a license as a doctor, lawyer, architect or any other certified professional position or even a drivers license.
