Judge elimination tests Printer Friendly Version
In the current status quo, the judiciary system of Korea is facing a lot of criticisms due to its unfair post-giving. There are many unqualified judges in the Supreme Court. The unfairness mainly arises because the judiciary system is not independent enough. To solve this problem, I suggest the judges to take judge elimination test every quarter, and evaluated by the general public of their abilities. The elimination test will be able to sort out those who are capable and then evaluation will be able to figure out judges relatively free of corruption. Fairness in the judge selection is especially important since citizens are dependent on the law, and should be provided with the protection of the law.

Political candidate background information database Printer Friendly Version
We need a website that lists all registered candidates for upcoming elections and that provides potential voters with as much information on each candidate as possible, such as their:
-voting history, if already a politician
-education
-affiliations and associations
-criminal record
-stance on issues (major and minor)
-articles written about them
-awards, commendations, etc.
-criticisms of their actions and policies
-ideology
-biography
-achievements
-any controversy involving them or their actions or those of their associates

This website must meet the following criteria:
-not-for-profit
-does not recieve corporate or political funding/contributions
-non-partisan, and as unbiased as possible
-moderated and cross-referenced for accuracy
-easily accessible to anyone
-free
-easy to navigate
-well 'advertised' via public service announcements to maximize awareness of the service
The idea here is to educate and thoroughly inform voters so that they know all about who they are voting for, so as to not get screwed by greedy or flip-flopping politicians. We need third-party information that is more trustworthy (fact-based) than what the politicians speak of themselves, because they will often say anything to get voted into office. Once they are in, they can do whatever they want even without the approval of the people who voted for them; so being able to estimate a candidate's pros and cons can be an invaluable tool in ensuring true democracy and representation.
I hate voting because I never know anything about 95% of the people on the ballot and therefore vote for the most familiar name (which is almost always the candidate with the biggest campaign budget) or based on party affiliation. I always feel like I'm giving my car keys to someone I just met...not a good idea; And it is way too hard and time consuming to research all the given candidates.
Reward: informed votes = more accurate representation = better politics!

Tax Credits To Live Close To Work Printer Friendly Version
What if the Government offered a tax credit to move closer to your job? This would reduce commuter traffic and air pollution. There would need to be a cap on the credits and some way to verify the move and change in distance.
Reward: Just a "Thanks to" me.
