My Utopia

  • Friday, November 25, 2022

Wouldn't it be nice, even fun, to have all election results valid only for six months, giving the person-elect a chance for voters to see where they really are headed. Then, have a re-vote.

Wouldn't it be nice if candidates for elected office could not contribute anymore to their campaign than what the laws allow for regular contributors.

Wouldn't it be nice for any elected official who wants to run for a different office, to immediately relinquish their present seat once they announce and pick up qualifying paperwork.

Wouldn't it be nice to tax the churches and use that tax money to build housing next door to their campus to house homeless citizens...then they could actually practice what they preach about helping others.

Wouldn't it be nice if any and all campaign promises had to be worked on from Day 1 until either fulfilled or scrapped due to a public outcry.

Wouldn't it be nice to have our elected public officials (who are actually just public servants) wear blue work clothing, with embroidered first names and what department they work in, like our real public servants. No more starched french-cuff shirts, no ties, no cuff links or fancy jewelry.

These are just some random ideas I have had over the years and thought this was as good a time as any to share them.
