Require candidates for federal office to undergo a psychiatric evaluation

Created by an Anonymous

This campaign needs to raise $5,000 to hire one of our lobbyists. 100% of donations go towards paying lobbying fees for this issue.

My Story

There are some members of all three branches of government who act in ways that are either dangerous to the common good or who have made their job into a game of corruption (accepting bribes or letting bad people get away with illegal acts).

 

I would like to change the law regarding who is eligible for public office using psychological evaluations in the way that most police forces do prior to hiring their staff. If a candidate is seen as dangerous or has the intent to use malicious behavior, or make judgments that hurt the general public, then they are not eligible for public office.

About Federal Elections and Candidates

We have a corruption problem in the U.S. where many politicians are simply acting like sociopaths, and most likely because they actually are. They have no concern for common good and act in unethical ways that lack common decency and empathy. This results in policy decisions that hurt the majority of Americans but favor them and their coffers. In some cases there are individuals who have the ability to make decisions regarding life or death and lack the empathy or care to avoid costly life-endangering mistakes.

What will your lobbyist do?

Whether it is a small state issue or a large federal policy, hiring a lobbyist is the best way to get your voice heard in government.

 

In order to pass a law that would require politicians to undergo a psychiatric evaluation before running for office, there would need to be a lot of outreach to lawmakers about why this is important for America and how a screening system would work and what it would cost. A professional lobbyist would be able to create legislation that would answer any concerns that arose and they would be able to discuss the impact it would have on the process. Federal law could also require the states to implement such a system and leave the preferred implementation method up to the states. Regardless, the best way to get something like this from an idea into law is by hiring a lobbyist.
