Currently trust in the Legislature is very low and after 3 legislators were convicted of felonies and 3 others left the legislature to work for those that lobbied them, it is clear we need to demand far more of our elected officials than we have been. We need Legislators that are honest with the people of the state of California and ones that are not controlled by anyone other than the voters of the great state of California. ...more »
Fix California Challenge
Instead of six new states, create six new Provinces using the same plan as the proposed Six Californias. Drastically reduce the size and power of the State government by transferring most of the authority to the Provinces. There is a proposal to do this in New York State.
Return California to apart time legislature. Representives do not get a salery, pension, medical, other perks, just a stipend to cover costs for attending a legislative session once every 2 years.
Take away the profit and lifetime income and those representing us will be acting for the good of the State and the people.
California and the United States are Republics, not true democratic states, due to vote count distortions like first past the post and gerrymandered districts, which all mathematically decay into single party +1 states of unequal representation. Well known voting methods that require only trivial ballot changes, studied by institutions like The Center For Election Science, can mitigate the effects and unearned power ...more »

Reynolds v. Sims in 1964 made the huge mistake of prohibiting states from having federal-style bicameral congresses. How this could be unconstitutional when the federal government operates this way is a mystery. A true bicameral congress gives each sub-government (counties in the context of a state, states in the context of the US as a whole) an equal vote in the senate and a vote proportional to their population in ...more »
Four Californians allows counties that border Nevada, Arizona and Oregon to determine which state they wish to affiliate. The idea is simple. The counties that border neighboring states have the right vote to succeed from California and join that state. Once the Neighboring state agrees to accept them, we will redraw the borders to reflect the new state boundaries. California needs a refresh. Our public schools ...more »

If you have a voting address, a student ID, or an employee ID, you can discover new groups and events in your community, instead of relying on your mutual friends ...more »
This idea is geared towards people between the age 18 and 28 (currently voting less than 9% of the time) so that their voices are heard and more accurately represented in the legislative process. Non-presidential voting issues would be presented in a persons newsfeed, similar to a sponsored add on Facebook, but the voting box would have a special "Government Sponsored" tag letting users know that this was ...more »
