Another "what if"

What if polititions weren't elected. What if they were conscripted. Kinda like when those famous words were uttered; "Ask not what your country country can do for you, rather what you can do for your country". What if every one had to serve a term in office. Names could be drawn from a computer that match people's skills to a particular posting. All done randomly with the only caveat being you have to be qualified to do the job. That way the cream would be skimmed from the top instead of the bottom of the bucket.

     Lets face facts. Most people in politics today are in it for them themselves. It's easy for them to get elected because no one in their right mind would want the job. Pick the best from your population and you get the best representation. A good non political example is the Switzerland and Israel. In order to own a firearm you must first serve in your countries military. Make great sense.

Applying this to politics may be the only hope we have of having a peaceful, prosperous, non partisan government.

                                                                       What if.  

As usual, feel free to criticize or add suggestions. All are welcome.

It beats some of the other options. If we could draft soldiers, drafting politicos seems fair. Then send THOSE off to the next war lol.

I agree. They would be less inclined to be warmongers and more inclined to be peace makers. A little military experience may be just the reality jolt they need. To dammed eager to send someone else's kid to die for monetary gains that benefit a chosen few.
