8. I would support term limits, but with longer terms

Sometimes it feels like there's an election every other week. Out Reps and Senators are almost constantly in "campaign mode," rather than actually legislating. As soon as they sit down, they have to defend the seat.

But then I'd also support a parliamentary system of government, to replace the current primitive "winner take all" system we're running.

Just 'cause we invented it doesn't mean we're the best at it, sadly.
