Will of the council — At the beginning of your upkeep, starting with you, each player votes for carnage or homage. If carnage gets more votes, sacrifice Coercive Portal and destroy all nonland permanents. If homage gets more votes or the vote is tied, draw a card.

I'm not sure why no one is mentioning this but the best way to get draw in Red or White for that matter other than wheel cards, which you should run, are artifacts.
There are many artifact cards that let you draw an extra card each turn, even the ones that make everyone draw a card each turn seem to give Red more advantage than other colors as your burn and copy spells are very strong.
Mind's Eye is 100% worth it. Howling Mine and Font of Mythos are both actually very good in mono red. I run all of the above plus these: Coercive Portal, Coveted Jewel, Endless Atlas, Temple Bell, and The Immortal Sun
If you run Wheel effects or effects that make everyone discard and draw, Geth's Grimoire, can give you huge advantage.
If you are having trouble with lands I also recommend running more mana rocks.
Cards that make Red spells cost 1 mana less to cast are very helpfull as well as anything that will double your mana.
I also highly recommend Mizzix's Mastery, very powerful when combined with wheels and copied. You can recast the wheel cards on the first go and then use the cards you discarded from the wheel for the second go. I've cast over 20 spells in one turn doing this and managed to cast 3 cards that made me empty my hand end redraw that many cards or 7 cards using Mizzix's Mastery.
I have two Red & White decks, one uses Wheel type cards heavily, the other uses Mana Rocks and Artifacts to make you or everyone draw cards.

I forgot to mention earlier that a political card can also be cards that give a backhanded gift (ie Nin, the Pain Artist). Also, not listing every curse in Magic's history.

Thank you for the suggestions!
I added many of the cards you suggested. Do the think Academy Ruins is worth having another colorless land so that I can recur the Capsules and artifact board wipes? I was debating its value over one of the Blighted lands.
For board wipes, I have Nev Disk, O-stone, Coercive Portal (eh?), Night Incarnate for a mini wipe, and then Ugin, the Spirit Dragon which I can keep -X'ing and getting him back if needed. Ugin, Portal, and Night Incarnate aren't the best so a Crux of Fate might be needed.

Thank you for commenting!
My deck tries to make others co-responsible for the outcome of my cards. Instead of Guided Passage, Intuition and Distant Memories I could have just put in stuff like Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor, but would take away the politics.
Not only the tutors follow these principles, but the same goes for mass removal Magister of Worth, Coercive Portal, Austere Command, land destruction Bend or Break, spot removal Council's Judgment, Diaochan, Artful Beauty, and reanimation Dawnbreak Reclaimer.
Another part of the deck is about making friends so I have some influence on their choices. I can do so by giving away tokens, life, counters, cards etc.
Overall the rest of the deck is mana fixing, drawing and pillow forting.
I'm still make a lot of changes after each game. Running 5 colours gives you so many options.
I like your take on Karona, although it's it's really different from mine. You really went for the wall tribal theme. I can imagine that it's fun to play. You're not really a threat early in the game and quite annoying to deal with later on. If you haven't done so already, check this Karona Defender Build on Youtube
