We must REFORM America’s democracy!

And here’s how I would do it:

  1. Abolish the Electoral College. Presidential candidates should be elected only by direct popular vote.
  2. Abolish primaries. Let all candidates of all parties go directly to the general election, provided they get a certain number of petition signatures in every state.
  3. Eliminate the Senate and thus make the U.S. Congress a unicameral body. The term length in the U. S. Congress should be four years, rather than two. The membership of Congress should be 1000.
  4. Forbid state legislatures from drawing and approving Congressional and state legislative districts. Only federal courts should do that.
  5. Allow voters to cast a vote for as many candidates as they wish in the general election at all levels and positions, instead of being forced to choose only one.
  6. Require that the Presidential candidate that gets the second most votes become Vice-President.
  7. Make Presidential terms four years long and make Presidential elections at the same years as Congressional elections.
  8. Impose term limits on Congressmen; they should be allowed to serve no longer than 16 years (four terms).
  9. Make electronic ballots illegal; only paper ballots should be counted in all elections.
