This can grow into a huge blog entry, but I will keep it short.
The ONLY way the US Government will get ‘fixed’ in the best interest of the citizens:
1) Place a campaign finance cap on BOTH the party and the individual candidates.
2) Remove all allowances for earmarks on bills.
These two reforms will stop the motivations of ALL AMERICAN politicians to say one thing and do another – to stop their self-serving votes and involvements and concentrate on the desires and best interests of their constituents.
There are no longer party lines, there are only politicians and different marketing tactics; blue and red, donkey and elephant. These are no longer Republicans or Democrats, but simply congressmen who are manipulated by their own greed and little to no interest of their constituents.
