We are going way off topic here.
No prob, I was wondering the "no military" thing myself. Plus we've had at least 3 nuclear bombs dropped in this thread already.

1) TERM LIMITS
Be that one or two terms, I don't care. But career politicians should NEVER be a thing.
2) REDUCED PAY TO POLITICIANS
They make too much money. They need to be in line with what the majority of Americans make.
3) BAN ANY AND ALL OUTSIDE PAY TO POLITICIANS
No speaking fees, no book deals, no special interest money until out of office for 5 years
4) BAN LOBBYING
Yes. No corporate interests in politics.
That should do it I think.
Serving this country as a Senator, Representative, Judge, President or any other office should be a duty, not a privilege.
