So what's your proposed solution? Any ideas?

That's a tough question, although I've laid out some ideas in this thread...
I say we turn it around on them! Start getting enough people to organize and propose changing the laws around how Congress gets paid, what kind of
medical care they get (should be the same as us), take away all of their "special" privileges, and make them more accountable by creating easier
methods of impeaching them. This can all be done with signed petitions along with public awareness. Of course, the catch... it WILL take money to pull
The kicker... is once the public starts to see Congress vote those kinds of measures down, they'll start to realize how corrupt and entitled they
are, and how they care more about lining their pockets than the People. What's good for the goose is good for the gander, and Congress and public
officials are no exceptions. They should be treated like anyone else, and as public servants. It started to surface with the medical laws changing for
us, but NOT for THEM, which angered millions of Americans and will likely have a direct impact on this election. We need men of virtue, with
demonstrated backgrounds showing their interest in helping people.
The next thing to do would be to petition putting the power to coin money back into the hands of the people by keeping the Federal Reserve as a bank
of all banks, but only giving them the money that our government prints instead of giving them the power to print it.
Both of these things would be a good start. From there, the currently corrupt system would start to fall apart, as the banks would lose their power to
influence matters once they no longer have an inexhaustible supply of money that they can control through the Fed. This would also change how laws are
created to protect corporations instead of people, and eventually, the tides will turn back in the favor of the people.
If someone really wanted to, they could even create a show like American Idol or The Voice, except call it "The Man", and spend several months
vetting people publicly on the same stage that is used to manipulate us today.
This is what I mean by use their tools against them. It can be done, and maybe I'm not the person to figure out how, but it has to happen.
I'd love to hear other members suggestions, and not just philosophical ideas, but real tangible ideas based on using the current system and all of
its loopholes. After all, these elite masters of illusion are in fact just men (and women) and are not above anyone else in that regard, so there has
to be people smarter that can find ways to turn the tide.
