You won't be able to "balance the scales" as long as people can be made to fear for their livelihoods.

Just look at the last US presidential election. It is clear that one of the key factors in the outcome of the election was the response of a vast voter pool demanding, in essence, job security.

Despite the fact that the candidate elected had no prior experience in government and, according to a number of reports, had, in fact, a history of disrespecting the very working class supporting him.

When you threaten the lobbyists you threaten the corporations. When you threaten the corporations, they turn and threaten their employees.

And when employees are threatened, they "toe (the Corporate) line", and cast their votes to maintain the status quo.

And who's to blame them? They are acting in their own, best, self-interest.

At least, to the best of their current abilities.

In today's world, the unemployed are, essentially disenfranchised; powerless, save for the intrinsic potential power that they could wield as a "fighting" army (the PTB know to keep the masses of unemployed just low and/or disorganized enough to prevent the formation of any kind of effective power block) and no one wants blood in the streets.

The employed are too afraid of becoming the unemployed to act against their corporate masters, even though they are the only ones who can, and are therefore the only ones who could "fix" this sad situation.

Interesting, but I can fix America in one step.

Value the rights of the individual over those of the Government and corporations.

The end.



But corporations are now considered to be, at least in terms of political contributions, individuals.

They have been acknowledged to have at least many of the same rights as "real" people.

You forgot to add term limits for the Supreme Court as well.


I mean, as long as we're "wishing" for things.



There is already an established term limit for Supreme Court justices; Life.

That provision was set forth to prevent those charged with deciding the most important legal issues facing our nation from being influenced in their deliberations by concerns over appeasing political demands.

Maybe adjust it to a single term of say 15 or 20 years?

Oh, and can we limit congressional vacation time at some point? Or will that just make things worse heh.

What if we outlawed the stock market, or, made it illegal for corporations to sell stock to the public?

Corporations could only be formed by combined private companies, and only for the purpose of construction of projects for the public welfare: schools, roads, dams, and the like.

The corporation would then be disbanded once the project was completed.

With no stockholders to answer to (other than the employees, perhaps), there would be no incentive to artificially inflate the value of the company for the benefit of the CEO's.

We complain about "fiat money" while turning a blind eye to the "fiat" worth of major corporations.
