We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The only solution is to return to the Articles of Confederation. This would eliminate the Executive, House of Representatives and Judicial Branches of the Federal government. The mono cameral house would look like the old senate.
The States would be free to do whatever they wanted. They could even renege on promises to fund the Federal government. Very desirable. Our history books are written by megalomaniacal fascists. The Constitution was a very bad idea.
If this professional governing class had to form teams that competed against each other, or were independent contractors whose record of running municipalities was observable, I might be in favor of it. If they are going to be professional, do it right.
At the moment, I'd probably elect a Swiss firm to govern us for the next two years.
