The NOBODY PARTY, everyone elected MUST be a nobody with common sense.. From dog catcher up. Take away government employee health care - would fix medicare in 5 min, take away lifetime pension - would fix social security, people making money NOT WORKING (investments) Pay HIGHER taxes than actual working money. And the big thing TERM LIMITS for EVERYONE, I'm tired of lifetime politicians.....
And stop this pendulum swing from extreme right to extreme left every 4 years... middle works better....
I suggest we have regional government entities and a president that is nothing more than a figurehead. Oh wait, I think we already have the latter.
Seriously. What is good for Detroit serves no purpose in Wyoming. What serves rural states has no impact in the inner cities.
Common sense. They know more about their way of life. We are now too big and unwieldy to be served by a president. One man cannot possibly know everything about the entire country. He would need to spend 47 hours a day just listening. He picks advisors with less care than I pick my shoes.

I agree. My brother and his family live in Switzerland and we often discuss politics. Switzerland doesn't have a president it has a 'board' of sorts. I voted 3rd party although some attempted to persuade me to "vote for the lesser of 2 evils." I'm sick of that rhetoric.

I agree with no parties. The worst thing with our government now is the party system. I'm for a "Clean House" party. If you get put on a committee, and can't reach any kind of solution, you are fired and sent home. There should be a mimimum intelligence level required before you can even put your name in for a position. Any party who has their main objective as beating the other party should be sent home-fortunately, that's what happened last night.
I know that the EC had its benefits, but honestly, when one or 2 small sections of the nation control everything else because they have more EC votes, it really is saying that the rest of us don't matter. I think that each state should get either an equal # of EC votes with some mechanism for a tie breaker, or that this non sense of winner take all just stop. It is not right, for either party
