A Modest Suggestion

Proposed: A new order of Congress - Four types of Representatives; Two Elected, one Selected and one Random.

The number of Districts in each State shall be halved, each District electing one Representative.

Each District shall also select at random a number of potential Representatives from the roll of registered voters. An elected Judge shall examine said pool and eliminate those unable to serve by reason of disability, hardship or personal philosophic objection; from those remaining one Representative shall be randomly selected. Such Representatives that serve shall be duly compensated and serve one Term.

Random Representatives may vote on issues before the House and may do so from from their abode, within four hours of the last Elected Representative vote.

Each State shall elect one Senator by state-wide popular election; each State shall also select one Senator by a vote of their Legislators.
