I don't think there will be an honest president or an honest candidate until all money is removed from politics. It's likely to be snowing on the
hilltops of hell before that happens.
As it stands only already corrupt, filthy rich, folks can even think about running for president. That severely narrows the field from the get go. One
has to already be connected, and backed as well.
When we completely remove money from the equation, then we will see our choices for viable candidates expand tremendously. I also feel that the office
should be held by a volunteer (meaning NO PAY). If one truly believes in what they are doing, wants change, wants better, wants to serve, then they
will gladly volunteer their time and effort for the cause. Housing, utilities, travel, etc. would of course come with the job, but anything above and
beyond would cease to be offered.
Many of us volunteer for worthy causes. How many corrupt folks are going to volunteer if there is no salary, no kickbacks, and no other perks
We have doomed ourselves to an endless two party system that only allows high rollers into the club. I'm not sure we can change it at this point. The
whole system will have to crash IMO before any real change can be expected.
