As we revel in our stunning victory, we must be cognizant of the fact that we cannot rest upon our great achievement in helping to get Donald Trump elected to the White House.

Trump promises to reform our tax system, stop the free trade agreements, run a security check on every imiigrant coming into the country. However, all of this is meaningless unless, we the people, enact one major reform to hold Congress in check. It is doable and it is long over due. If we want to take our country back, we absolutely must do this one thing.

  • For once I agree with you, eraser-head. Forcing politicians to draw only from a taxpayer funded pool of money for campaign spending would be much more favorable then allowing them to take in limitless amounts of money from corporate interests. In addition to that, a spending-cap and strict accounting oversight to ensure they are only using money from the taxpayer pool should be also be required.

    All of that would be a good start, but ultimately, how would that stop private pacs and other interests from running ads and campaigning for candidates in a (so-called) “unaffiliated” or “independent” manner without violating the first amendment?

    • All that said, do you honestly think Trump or the Republicans (or Democrats for that matter) are going to advocate for reform like that, and that corporate interests are going to allow their “person-hood” status to be revoked?

      • …morguana…Its very possible that nothing is ever gonna be understood, and that humans are doomed to live out pointless lives of confused bewilderment…but, you just hang in there sweetie…There are a lot of nice , less cynical subjects you know a lot about, too, I’m sure.

  • Only the true narcissist, and of course, narcissist are not of god, since god is of and for happier and better for all, could be so blind to their own undoing posed as success, and walk smack dab right into the simple trap set before them, and not see it right in front of their own eyes.

    but go figure…

    the self righteous, the self superior, have always been the most easily duped, gullible and ignorant idiots…

    because they use a belief in god to make their own thoughts as supreme to them self.

    pray mercy upon the deplorables, as they shall surely need it in their time of travail, which cone upon them as a thief in the night.

  • I agree with much of what you say but would propose a more moderate limitation on campaign donations. If you outlaw campaign donations you are effectively limiting free speech. You may argue that campaign donations limit the free speech of the poor whose voice is drowned out by the wealthy, and that is a valid argument, hence my proposal for moderate limitations. Also I object to my tax money going to fund a campaign I find objectionable. While public financed campaigns may be a lesser evil than the current system, I still believe there has to be a better way. Legal bribery is only slightly better than illegal bribery, but like it or not, companies and corporations need a way to get the attention of lawmakers in order to make their needs known. Without money, congress would have little reason to bother with lobbyists. Then you run into the issue of non-monetary contributions such as media coverage. That is opening another can of worms with the freedom of speech issues and the freedom of the press. This is a complicated issue with no easy answer. Presently corporations rule our govt because money more often than not influences lawmakers to make decisions that are clearly bad for the people, and the same money buys the propaganda to get them reelected. The elite have become scientific experts at manipulating democracies. They control the corporations and the mainstream media which they use to project their power via money and propaganda.

    Reform is clearly needed. I would suggest deeper limitations on the amount of money that both individuals and corporations can contribute. It’s much more difficult to provide a solution for the corrupt mainstream media as any curtailment would be a double edged sword. I despise the democrat’s fairness doctrine. But perhaps the biggest issue is that we, as Americans, need to do a better job of educating ourselves and our children. We need to do away with the idea that govt or other people owe us anything. Each new generation feels more entitled as we slip deeper and deeper into socialism. And socialism is seductive. It is forced upon us as most Americans are too poor to afford healthcare, childcare, education, and retirement. Rampant continual inflation, and the draining of jobs overseas makes it impossible for all but the upper middle class and above to be self sufficient. Having sick people dying in the streets is clearly not an option most of would accept. So gradually we must change attitudes toward self sufficiency. The less we depend on govt the less control govt has over us, and by extension the elite who control govt through money and propaganda.
