    I reject the premise that something "must" be done to "fix" the "problem" with elections in the US.
    None of anything proposed here is necessary.

    i'm serious. you should send this to someone. this contains arguments that I have been making for years, plus some that I hadn't even thought of. I especially liked how you suggested shorter terms for justices (one of the largest reasons why the civil rights movement took so long to gain momentum was because the supreme court couldn't be "refreshed" or "updated"), i'm just not sure if it is a good idea to have them elected by popular vote. the only thing that I actually disagree with is that the president would have to win 62% of the vote to gain an additional 3 years. that number should be higher. implementing this set of suggestions would be extremely difficult without, but impossible with our partisan system, therefore if it was implemented, political parties would not be as prominent. the main reason no president has ever won more than 62% of the popular vote is because, sadly, too many people always vote for the candidate form one party rather than the one who is a better candidate. this means that if that is not a factor, a good president could easily gain the votes necessary for a 3 term extension.

    overall, this is vary good, well thought out plan to fix our severely outdated election system. the only major problem is implementation. there is no way it will be implemented all at once, as it is very hard to change anything with our current system of perpetual campaigning, but maybe, hopefully, piece by piece, it will happen.
