Special interest groups do not represent "the people" evenly; they represent those who have money to form and run the special interest group. As such, by definition they should not be part of the democratic process and have influence over the voices that represent us.

Representatives should not be allowed to get any influence from special interest groups.

There's a reason the office of president has a 2-term limit. For the same reason, all elected officials should also be limited to at most the same period of time (8 years), and preferably shorter. The progressively more abusive politicians have become is a clear indication of why term limits are needed.

The TSA is completely over the line. When everyday people, and especially kids, are groped by agents in the name of national security, it's the TSA that are the terrorists.
Ask yourself what value the TSA has when it's impossible to hijack a plane now that pilot doors are impenetrable.

Mark my words, Obama will pardon Hillary before he leaves office. A final act of nepotism.

Any prosecutor or district attorney that pleas a deal that is inconsistent with the will of the people, or doesn't pursue charges against someone that should be charged, should be held accountable for the injustice they have caused. The injustice may very well leave the public in danger.

Likewise, any improper pursuit of justice that causes the wrong person to pay the price, due to knowingly suppressing evidence or carelessly failing to discover reasonable leads, should also be held accountable for the negligence. Having someone locked up just because a D.A. is concerned about their record is criminal.

Voting district boundaries have historically been redrawn to someone's advantage, and the system needs to be overhauled. The rules on how the boundaries are formed need to be automated such that no person makes the decision.

Anyone charged for a crime who adamantly claims to be innocent, should be given more consideration for proving their innocence. And circumstantial evidence should not be the sole reason for proving their guilt.

Criminals should not be given lighter sentences or early release due to medical issues.

In addition to reviewing that our ballots were recorded, we should have the ability to review the votes recorded to make sure they are accurate, and to avoid any possible recording errors or fraud. This should be keyed off the ballot number we each retain.
Additionally, a full publication of all votes cast should be published, along with ballot numbers, that can searched as above, but also tallied independently by anyone wishing to audit the results.

Elected government representatives should only take direction from those they represent in a way that represents all of them, as uniformly as possible. Lobbyists that don't represent their constituents uniformly should be abolished, as well as corporate sponsors and special interests.

Money, perks, or any other influence, taken from anyone other than those who elected them, should be considered bribes.

Police should never fire more than one round at a suspect unless a threat is known to have a gun and they can see the gun raised in a direction of threat to someone (police or bystander).

It's pretty pathetic that the president of the United States earns only $400,000 a year. We should pay the president like a CEO with a base salary closer to $10,000,000 or $20,000,000; with incentives for things like lowering the deficit, low executive order count, lowering inflation, lowering unemployment, cross-party collaboration, etc.
The first lady should earn a healthy wage too, depending on her involvement.

When officers use deadly force under the guise of a perceived deadly threat, only to find out there was no threat, it is natural to perceive the presence of an officer as a deadly threat.
This vicious circle is self-defeating to all police enforcement, and must be stopped.

Lethal injections used for executions known to cause suffering *should* be used, not avoided, as those executions are for crimes that likely caused the victims and their families and friends to suffer.

There seems to be a new unwritten addendum to one of our laws. A person is innocent until proven guilty, unless they are a public figure accused of a crime.
Usually the assumed crime was: committed long ago, quickly revealed by the press, and quickly judged by the entire country.
The punishment is a guilty verdict in everyone's eyes, and usually termination from their jobs or roles.

The media should never be given, nor expect, information on strategy or plans that the military will take, or has taken. The enemy should never know you're coming.

As congress decides the taxes imposed on the rest of us, we should be the ones who decide the taxes *and* pay rates for congress.
