Change Politics {Pol.} iPetitionRate:4444

I believe our current political system around the world is not up to its task any longer undermining our democracies.
Politicians are elected based on their popularity not on their capabilities and then they have a free hand to do what they want during their term.  (This should not be viewed as an attack to the current politicians' capabilities but to the way the system works.)
I strongly believe the people who govern entire countries should be the smartest people of that country while the laws and regulations should be voted by their inhabitants. 
That is the best and smartest democracy that would truly represent its inhabitants desires.

A committee of wise men representing all important fractions of the country would elect its best possible leaders.  The leaders' tasks would be to govern and also to present its inhabitants in the best possible way the choices it has to make.

If you agree please sign this petition and send it to your friends.  Maybe we can start a new movement and make a change.  Please react as well if you don't agree or have ideas to further improve this belief.

This is all what ibelieve stands for: give the power to the people.

Adressed to:
To all our leaders (Politics)

who could be the wise men

The wise men are respresentatives of our comunity.
One would represent the entrepreneurs, another the religious groups, another the labor unions, and so on.
Otherwise there could be a system of merit.
Anyway, the key point is not to have leaders elected by popularity but by capabilities.

I have a question here...just who selects the 'wise' men?  The money men?  The CEO's?  Who?  Probably the same folks who 'select' our candidates now...faceless, nameless puppeteers always in the shadows, doing their very best to control us for THEIR benefit...not ours.
