    I propose that we create a new branch of government called We The People and create a new competing currency and give one unit to every vote any representative of we the people make. Literally hiring ourselves to control our government. This branch would hold the most authority and be fast and efficient at making decisions.

    Go ahead only you might need to call it "I the person".

    It would probably be easier to jump on a clipper, sail off to Antarctica, and start fresh.

    I realize that people are apathetic and this would be very unlikely to happen but it would be very good government if it were to happen. T

    I don't understand what you're suggesting.

    How would these "representatives" of "We the people" be elected? Or do you mean that we'd all vote, and the country would be turned into a direct democracy?

    This proposal makes no sense. Why would we do anything like this?

    OK. But are you corruptible?
