  • Term limits and pay cuts for Congress. I think that if we eliminated the career DC politician, living in their own little political world, then that would eliminate a lot of our problems in Washington, which would, in turn, eliminate a lot of the problems our nation faces.

    I would also like to see candidates who are running for office be required to take (and have their scores published, as well as how many times they had to take it to get that result) - the standard test for citizenship. After all - if they are to govern us, shouldn't they have at least as much of a basic knowledge of our country as the average immigrant is supposed to have?

  • Take the power away from the politicians and special interest groups and give it back to the people.

  • People should have to pass a test & prove they are intelligent enough to make informed decisions before they would be granted the right to vote. Maybe then we'd have more people in government positions who can actually make that happen.

  • Actually I would reverse several laws that aren't working. I would legalize marijuana and other drugs so that they can be regulated and taxed.
