IMHO, they're all good ideas but if we can define a citizen as a flesh-and-blood person only, it would go a long way toward getting rid of this being a nation which serves business and not people.  The idea of a corporation having rights is an abomination.

The corps would find a way to funnel the dollars through individuals but on a grander scale than they now do.

Just make perpetual monitoring of lawmakers bank accounts a law and then see how they can hide their kickbacks.

All of the above.  Monitoring too, but then they'd flaunt what they sell themselves for rather than hiding their votes.

Why should they not. The masses will re-elect them anyways.

remove money from politics sounds like a good idea

the constitution says only gold and silver is money..

fdr took that away from the avg citizen(usian)..

things didn't go too badly till lbj got in and said "we ca afford guns and butter"

the deficit soared so much ,that gold was taken out of foreign trade..

now money is what the gov/govs  define as they like..

these days it is pixels..

I think it has to be the electoral college, but this workaround that more and more states are adopting may do the trick.

Looks like Colorado is about to back out of their agreement.  I think the whole thing is preposterous anyway - either fix it or live with it but a bandaid won't help.

And do something about faithless electors as well - if you're going to do the EV thing, the votes should go to the state winner automatically.

I really don't know, but if you're going to have an EC - which I personally think we should NOT - then a state's votes should reflect the will of the voters in that state.  That's why we need to just go to direct election.  The idea that five or six states should pick the president, that one vote in Wyoming is worth more than three votes in California, and that tens of millions of votes are treated as if they never happened at all is an abomination with only one cure.
