No constitutionsal change required. Vote old people out of office. 70 is a nice age to retire. Trump doesn't get up till noon and quits after a few hours. He's too old to give the public the service we need. Republican, Democrat, Socialist, what ever.
Vote the old folks out.
HPeeler, USN Ret, and yes, over 70.
Better yet fire congress, House and Senate, make lobbying illegal and give everyone over 50 the vote on all matters legislative. We the people will truly run the country. There fixed. Next?
Welcome to the forum. what does the average "over 50" know about the stuff they would vote on? Keeping the public informed would be a huge effort.
Yours is not a bad idea. Certainly worth consideration and development. Organized how? Would everybody get on-line and voice their opinion and vote on issues? A forum for 100 million people?
Strictly an automated system? Only a president? A cabinet would keep us in a system of buying influence. Replace the cabinet with automation? Computers don't have elections to fund, children in college or retirement to worry about.
Do we need a president to interface to foreign powers?
True some of them look too old and stupid to vote on anything LOL... especially the democrats sorry side.
18? 21? 25? 35? Military service? Proof of reasonability test at any age? What question would you ask to confirm a person was not too stupid or crazy to vote?
Read and write English.
?A good start. If you can't understand all aspects of the issues and clearly express your opinion why should you have the right to vote?
If we don't understand international economics why should our vote count? If we elect leaders who have the necessary insight what we get is "the best government money can buy".
