">Propose a constitutional amendment that imposes term limits on all members of Congress."
Limiting the ability of new members to say "Hook up with and I'll look after you for the rest of my life."
Limiting the ability of existing members to threaten new members with "You cross me and I'll f**k you up forever on every vote."
Requiring parties to consider accession planning when that term come to an end.
>A five-year ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service.
Lunches at this level should definitely be on the official calendar. If it looks like a lobbyist and behaves like a lobbyist..
>A lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.
No problem as British Petroleum no longer exists (and hasn't for decades). Now had you said BAE...
>A complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.
Sounds good to me. After all isn't it people who elect candidates? Or does "personhood" of public companies extend to them making campaign donations and getting a vote? How is that vote decided? CEO, Majority stockholder? Stockholder ballot? Board ballot?
Here's the thing. Trump is not the disease. Trump is the symptom. BAU produced Trump.
I don't like the man. I don't trust him and I wouldn't vote for him. Hence we'll see if it's all talk or wheather he will actually change anything for the better. I'm sure he will change things.
But a large part of the US voting population felt that conventional candidates would rather look after themselves than their voters.
Both parties should look at that and ask why voters think that.
Here's an idea. Maybe the voters are right and the system has encouraged career politicians who view the taxpayers money as their own. Who've never had a job, just a political life style. Who first and last question is "What's in it for me/my main contributors/my party (in that order. No voters don't count)?"
Let me repeat. The system is ill. Trump is a symptom. I don't think he's the cure either.
