Ah, this reminded me of a part I forgot, thank you.
0.1. All elections are run with public money, and fairly limited at that. Districts should be drawn by neutral parties, and primaries should be open (not one dem one repub). At this point this would take a constitutional amendment it seems, but the only way logic gets to prevail, imo. We need money out of politics, and incentives for politicians to migrate towards the center, not polarize. Seems like this is the prerequisite to all of the above, sadly. Both sides have gotten way too good at gaming the current system, which is why this seems so intransigent.
