I have a proposal for your consideration.
Let us assume for the moment that the major problem in America is that the majority of Elected Officials do not represent the majority view of anything but career politicians.
If this is so, the simple answer is to replace our current crop of career politicians with actual citizens. Put a one-term limit on politicians. Or even simpler, always vote against the incumbent.
Throw the bastards out, and bring in fresh blood. Let our decisions be made by people who actually have careers, and a vested interest in returning to private life, their families, and in making decisions that reflect the desires of the populace.
