I'm back from the Boundary Waters. While away, I've come up with the basic precepts of my new political party, the Clean House Party. (Clean is meant as a noun and a verb). Basically, a member of the Clean House Party has only internal reform as issues. Everything else is done only to the degree necessary. (Ex. A Clean House President would direct troops in a war since it is his role to do so, but he would not make the case for war, since that is the role of the congress.)
Anyway, to be a member of the CHP, you must believe in these issues:
*Publicly funded elections
*The creation of a new branch of government whose role is to investigate the activities of the other branches
*Uniform enforcement of the law
That's it. Any other issue is not appropriate for a CHP politician to pursue. Once passed, laws in this regard will be self-perpetuating. This means that the CHP is attempting to eliminate its reason to exist. If this occurs, a new party with new issues may arise, but it will need to stand or fall on its own merits.
