Make Politics Better, Reintroduce Dueling

Here is an interesting article I found on Dvorak Uncensored. The article starts out by letting us know that Kentucky politicians still need to swear they never participated in a duel before taking office. From there the article asks the following question:

What if we re-introduced dueling to Washington?

My answer. It would certainly expedite the political process. Further only politicians who really stood behind their position would be willing to continue standing behind their position. This could be the greatest idea of this century.

It would certainly help CSPAN’s ratings.
