Boy would the competition among conspiracy theory news sites heat up though. It would be like a lottery among pawns.
Better idea: call a unique jury of randomly assigned jurors for all legislative votes.
Why not just do some direct democracy? We have the Internet, which is a secure and reliable way to poll anything.
The UK government invests a fair bit of money in sport- lots of it comes from the lottery, and it tends to go to either minority sports- like pretty much everything in the Olympics- as a result Team Sky (which is pretty much the UK national team) is among the best in the world, and the track team are also pretty incredible. There's also all the disability sports too, It's not like we're giving any of this money to formula 1, or premiership football teams, It's a lot harder than it appears to justify removing government funding. You're going to be bringing home a lot fewer medals from the Olympics, especially as China won't be stopping their government investment.
If Congress is selected randomly, there'd be no Green Party, since there'd be no parties, and the Green Party is anyway a reaction to the intransigence of the dominant two parties, which would be broken by random selection, so without them there is no reason a Green Party would exist whose members could be randomly appointed.
