How to Fix American Government In Three Easy Steps

For the record, I’m a flaming liberal…

I’m not too keen on item number one. Much to arbitrary, and makes being rich bad. I much prefer a very strictly enforced law requiring 100% divestment in all businesses before appearing on any ballot… although, I think that is too draconian for small local government.

Item number 2 is a fantastic idea… Both the psychological test and a comprehensive civics test should be required. I don’t know how deep into local government this should apply, but certainly it should be done at all they higher elected levels.

I like item number 3 too… and there should also be a limit on when campaigning can begin… say, 3 or at most 6 months prior to the election. That is likely to be challenged on the basis of a 1st amendment violation.

As you said, I am thinking most of that will never happen… But item 2 by itself would have saved us from the boob currently occupying the White House.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
