Reset Button

What if we pushed the reset button on the U.S. Government and started from square one? I think I’ve come up with a way to at least get things started. First we need to rid ourselves of the idea of one person having sole power at the top, the President. Now to reform congress; we need to have a person from every ethnic group, religious group, economic group and gender group. IE: One male and one female African American Catholics from the lower class, one male and one female Caucasian Jews from the middle class, etc. We vote one person from each group and give them a place in our new congress. That way we have a governing body consisting of each group’s opinions, needs, wants and ideas. Now, we can’t have our new congress getting hungry with greed, so we make this an un-paid volunteer position, much like our city councils. Now each group has their own representation and they’re not in it for the money. This way you erase these wars of money and greed and you get rid of the ‘old rich get richer while the poor get poorer creed we all face. You give each group their own vote in the way things are run and the laws that get passed. That way, everyone works together to look out for everyone involved. As I said in the beginning, this is just a start, not a whole solution. But, I think it is a good healthy start.
