Scrub American politics with reform

February 14, 2018
Lehigh Acres Citizen

To the editor:

Let's clean up American politics: Here's how, Part 1"

1) (First by a country mile.)

No more elected "representatives," so-called "public servants." What with modern high-speed communications, such diversions are no longer necessary!!

In any event, in the current presence of trainloads of special interest money, "Representative Democracy" is utterly impossible - as we see every day.

Let the voters act DIRECTLY upon the issues and/or proposed legislation.

2) Who proposes legislation?

Anyone, including The (informed) man-in-the-street, but primarily special interests through the political parties -but even directly - all after qualification by petition.

3) No more mega-bills

The text of any given piece of Legislation shall be limited to one side of eight letter-sized pages of 10-point type in ordinary English : No lawyer-speak or tech jargon!

Let's go!! Save our nation and our people!!
