How I Would Change the Government


I can't change things independently, but here is what I wish would happen.

Federal Government

My proposals will never happen since a constitutional amendment would be required.  A 2/3 vote in the House and Senate followed by approval by 3/4 of the state legislatures would be needed.
  • Abolish the electoral college and the presidential election be decided by popular vote
  • The term for the House of Representatives be expanded to four years with the election held in even-numbered years when there is no presidential election.
  • Limit Senators to two six-year terms and Representatives to three four-year terms.
  • All Supreme Court justices can be appointed to one ten-year term that may not be renewed.
New York State Government
  • There should be term limits for the Governor, State Senate, State Assembly, Attorney General, and Comptroller.
New York City Government
  • Abolish the office of Public Advocate.  I need to see what the person in this position accomplishes.  Most previous incumbents have used this as a stepping stone to a higher office.
