Would it be a good idea to sequester the house - senate and president until they agree to a budget that will last a year not a week?

Explained by LorraineTwevlehundredRaineTwelvehundred...

I get so very tired of the never ending increase in government spending, also they won't pass a cost saving budget making it happen over and over again. Wonder if the US government will shut down tonight as they refuse to agree on anything. Lock them up like a jury until they get it done :?)

Yes. For what we pay them, I think Congress should be sequestered begining a month out from when ANY legislation is due, untill it is completed. .

Hey neand - I don't notice repub or demos, they are all equally at fault in my opinion. - Thanks for getting in the alien part, I was thinking of that but didn't want my post to be too long. You are right, they are more interested in keeping those illegals in country than caring for real citizens in the country.

So, I guess you want the electoral college arrested? They are the ones who have overthrown a democratically elected president, not once, but twice in this Century alone.

I know the difference, but why should some irrelevant state with a population of 84 poor people have the same influence as the large productive states?

I don't need to learn the difference I am not all that interested in politics, so unless it is some local question I care about I don't bother to vote.

AH electoral college should be done away with. Technology should be to the point it can count votes . There weren't any computers or even adding machines in the past so today wouldn't you think they could come up with a voting system that counted real votes and nothing else. Maybe that will be on the iPhone soon too(ono)

Why not just try it without a Congress or President for awhile. This system isn't working any longer, time to scrap it and come up with another form of government.

Give us your ideas. You can't scrap something without having a better system to replace it with.

The hate and divisiveness in this country has gotten so out of control, I don't believe it can be fixed. They have already scrapped having the people select the leaders, the Supremes have installed 2 presidents this century alone. Not sure what would be better, but the government we have sure isn't working any longer.

I don't think many would disagree with you on the corruption of the government over the past 80+ years. I just can't think of a better system. I think the best we could hope for is to just clean up the system we have and put things in place to never let it get this bad again.
If I had the answer on HOW to actually do that, I'd be the one cleaning house.

The system actually worked when the two sides actually would work together and both sides would negotiate. The simple majority voting in Congress isn't working at all. When either party is in control, there is nothing but conflict. If, in the Senate it took 60 votes to pass, both sides would have to work together and give and take to pass anything. Then and only then will the American people actually win.
At least that is my opinion, that and a 3 bucks will buy you a Starbucks latte lol
