There are so many things that need to be changed so our society has a just system by where we can incorporate common sense solutions to the overwhelming problems we now face. One is to change our political structure so there is some accountability without all the lost of time and money with an overwhelming amount of political campaigning.

If the men who wrote the Constitution of the United States had been able to foreseen how politicians have become so influenced by private interest along with their own financial gain rather than the doctrine of civic duty their title bestows them.

I believe they would have written

Article 1 section 1 thru 9; Article 2 section 1; and Article 3 section 1; very differently.

The three changes I would like to see incorporated into the Constitution are as follows:

  1. Concerning the Executive branch of Government:

To have the President of the United States of America elected into office ONE time for a term of SIX years. This way the time spent in office would not be as influenced by the politics of being reelection, which consequently would make the term in office that more productive. It would also make the burden of cost associated with reelections much more conversably.

  1. Concerning the Judiciary branch of Government:

Each Supreme Court Justice should sever no more than EIGHTEEN years with SIX of the Justices being change every THREE years. With the cases they are assigned to being determine by a random and non patrician manor.

  1. Concerning the Congressional branch of Government

Members of the Senate should have their elections coincide with the Governors of each state with one election every SIX years, each being limited to ONE term in office. With the elections being designed so one third of the electoral races take place every two year.

Members of House of Representatives would then have their elections held with the other State elected officials every FOUR years with each member being able to serve no more than TWO terms or a total of EIGHT years in office.

I wrote this without properly editing it as I was in a hurry however I believe you will be able to look at it and determine what I am proposing here without too much difficulty.

I am interested in hearing what others would propose concerning this one issue.

interesting - but i think we are out of time - the Rs in power in 26 states and in the house would never go along with this. i welcome ALL ideas, but we must concentrate on what we can do SOON ( before things get much worse )
