Matt B replies: Maybe we should be like the Swiss. Keep all major voting local and have a president on a 1 year non renewable term. The cabinet would be county council sized and cross party; infact the whole federal assembly elect the seven cabinet members. cabinet concentrates on major policy - foreign, defence etc. Most taxes are local and needs are decided locally.written 20th Apr 2005
they can also hold referenda locally at federally (only 100,000 signatures are required). this would make our politics much more interesting and less confrontational as there would be millions voting rather than 700 duffers.
