End elections, choose leaders by lottery.

The problem with our politics is money gets people elected. Choose representatives by lottery. This new system would allow people other than rich lawyers to get into office. The corporations would not know who to bribe. A homeless congressman...

Reform ballot access laws

Current ballot access laws are unfairly restrictive of "third-party" candidates, presenting a major hurdle via registration fees, petition requirements, and even votes garnered in previous elections. This restricts the voters' options unfairly. A...

Require National Vote 65% in favor of Declaration of War

Over the past 50 years presidents have lend our country into wars that we don't want. Congress seems to have abdicated its responsibility to the President. This seems to allow even more concentration power. War is expensive and the public really...

Term limits for Supreme Court Justices

It would seem that the Judicial leg of our tri-cornered system of checks and balances has usurped entirely too much power for itself. The Founders, obviously, had no intention of the courts of the land to legislate from the bench. It is past time...

Elect a national Attorney General

Rather than have the Attorney General be an appointed position, allow him to be elected. The idea here is that right now the President has full power when it comes to execution of laws and such. But as we have seen President's abuse this. It...

A ban on all forms of lobbying.

Lobbying has proven to be an unnecessary evil used by special interest groups and corporations to pass regulations to stomp out what it calls 'unfair competition' and take advantage of the states monopoly on force. It needs to be stopped.

Set the American dollar to the Labor standard.
