Legislative Branch

Voting districts should be established to improve cooperation.

Every ten years Congress gets to "Gerrymander" districts and typically only uses criteria for how people are registered to vote assuring that party is favored for the next decade. This should be mandated to change using socio-economic, geographic and LOCALLY controlled processes that would more likely develop districts that produce legislators that are more willing to cooperate on issues rather than take the more extremist point of view that is counter productive in Congress today. Further, once a politician is elected to office, they should be subject to recall by the entire population they represent and eventually this same population should be able to vote for whoever they want in primaries or get rid of the primaries completely. All they do is solidify the extreme right or extreme left of political thinking and are more likely influenced by large dollar contributions.
