What would START to improve government?Posted Saturday, November 3, 2007, at 2:58 PM
I would be interested in reading constructive solutions to improving government.
What if we took away their ability to add attachments to bills and required that the bills only apply to a limited amount of subjects, we might be able to see through the "mud".
ALSO, if we limited our litigious society, we would not have to write 20,000 pages to say that they want to build a bridge over the Potomac. An exaggeration I hope, but......
While we say elections are built-in term limits, they do not seem to be working well because the political machines are WELL oiled and we the public are either too gullible or uninformed.
Maybe there are fewer and fewer people of high quality who want to put their and their family's reputation through the political microscope.
Or maybe make political campaigns liable for things they say about someone. Nah, that would be adding to our litigious society but there should be a way to make them more responsible.
Eight to twelve years seems long enough to learn, be productive and get out.
