    Until we pass term limits with very short terms and prohibit the receipt of any benefit whatsoever from lobbyists, we will suffer fraud upon the voters.

    But in addition, we must have a simple and easy recall statute for every elected official and all judges.

    Finally, it should take no more than 100 signatures to start a political party in this state. Maybe if we have 4-8 of them, the competition will incentivize a lot more integrity. The Dems and Reps are loaded with crooks because they are a duopoly.
