1) People have to get involved in the civic process. It does no good to empower people with political power, if half or more are just going to sit back at home and let others do the work. When close to 1/2 the eligible voting population does not vote, that is the first and primary problem right there. All of this other stuff is secondary, if people are not willing to get involved in the civic process. They have to vote. Means that they have to think, and make decisions, and look things up. You want more power to the people that is the primary thing. A citizens grand jury, is fine, but if half the population is not willing to get involved, would it really matter?
2) I have heard it time and time again, it is time to put term limits on congress and all elected offices.
3) Make all elected positions have to write down why they voted for a bill, show their reasoning in writing, open for any and all to read and look at. The Judges, have to write down their reasons for why they ruled, so perhaps if congressmen were required, it would clear up much.

My how the right has changed their tune.
A year ago...
Black Americans make the claim law enforcement is corrupt.
The right: You're a disgrace, respect law enforcement
Rich White Americans make the claim law enforcement is corrupt
The right: You're right, down with law enforcement.
Funny, many on the left for years have been trying to tell you conservatives about the FBI, but you didn’t listen.
Trump didn't seem to "get THAT memo"...

I think Obama spent the last 8 years weaponizing the IRS,FBI,DOJ,and God knows what else we're still finding out.
No deflection or spin will help the dems now..
