    If you're too stupid to fill in the correct circle on the ballot or in any way, cannot effectively use the balloting system in place, then your vote is out. No dangling chads. We need intelligent voters.

    If you're elected on the basis of campaign promises you made to the electorate and then do not honor those promises, you cannot run for an immediate second term.

    All bills submitted for consideration by any Senator or Congressman undergo Constitutional review before they can be voted on. If the bill fails Constitutional muster, it immediately dies.

    There will be no "closed door" wheeling and dealing. All panels, committees, commissions, and conversations among the elected reps will be televised and taped. No exceptions.

    A candidate running for election in a particular state will draw all of his/her monetary support from citizens in that state. No out-of-state corporate sponsorships.

    No more incumbency "war chests". When a long-term incumbent runs for re-election, he/she can only spend what his/her opponent spends. We need citizen-legislators, not career politicians.

    And of course, there will be term limits. In fact, if term limits could be put in place, many of the above maxims would be un-necessary.

    Feel free to add, delete, modify. This is what I came up with over morning coffee.
