As long as I am posting impossible changes of the government that might save us, let's do the other big one: The elimination of Politics in America and the return of Citizen Legislators. On Federal, State & Local legislatures we enjoy the same method of elevation into our duty of those who pass laws as we use to parcel out punishment and justice in our courts. You will receive, in the mail, your notice that you are called to duty. Just like on Jury Duty, your first job is to be taught what is involved in governance. Those who learn best are put up to be tested. The best students then are put into the places of Congress, Council, School Board or whatever positions are needed. Only the President, Governors and Mayors are elected. Those who are on duty then are sequestered, with their families, into Government housing and serve for 2-4 years. They will be clothed, fed and housed. When they have finished service they will be mustered out, with their mandatory public service paid, just like military, peace corp or the like. They will be eligible for government loans to go on with their lives. Any form of lobbying is a capitol offense. Any corruption is a 1st class felony. Again, just an idea.
