My Proposed Flag:
My Proposed Republic
Many of you know of my disenchantment with political parties both here and overseas. I'd love to see Australia become a republic where both houses of parliament are filled with nothing but independents voted for as each electorate's representative rather than a representative of a party.
As for the President, he or she should also be an independent voted for by the people. However, you would probably have to have a number of run-off polls to successively narrow the field.
Once elected, the President would then get to select a cabinet from anyone in the country who was suitably qualified and whose nomination was passed by both Houses.
What? You mean this sounds a little like the US system? Well, yes it does. Their constitution works admirably - albeit with some occasional hiccoughs - but with a little Aussie tinkering I'm sure it could become the groundwork for an even better, more democratic way of doing political business.
