What We Want

Originally posted at Writeindependent.org on March 20, 2012

Here is a list of the main issues that need to be addressed before our government becomes sufficiently democratic:

Campaign finance reform

Universal voter registration

Redistricting reform

Election integrity

Constitutional amendments (overturning Citizens United)

Senate filibuster & electoral college reform

Proportional representation

Instant runoff voting

More transparency

Shame the politicians in their home districts

I would add to the above list that we need to punish those representatives who have a conflict of interest. There should be consequences for anyone who takes favors or money in exchange for influence.
