If I were to run for president, my first order of business would be to abolish all forms of Congress (Federal and State). The president would create laws, and the American people would vote on them directly. If citizens have an idea for a federal law, they would attain a certain amount of signatures on a petition, it would be sent to the president, the president would put it on a ballot, and the American people would vote on it, along with all other agendas. Voting polls would be held 4 times a year If citizens in a state wanted a specific law passed, it would be the same process, however, the petition would go to the state's respective governor. We the people need a president and a court system. We do not need to be paying our dysfunctional Congress salaries, pensions, and benefits for life to bicker and look out for corporate interests. There would be no more lobbying. Every American gets a vote, so the majority's interests are always protected. America would then be a True Democracy!
