    What's the solution? Hand it over to Big Government? That'll sure save us some money... how's that multi-hundred million dollar website going for ya?

    No one.

    IMO, America has to have an economic disaster - worse then 2008 - to make the masses realize that both the Fed and the government have no idea how to properly run an economy. This could lead to far less power for these two entities AND that would mean far less crony capitalism - no 'too big to fails', no QE's (which mostly just pump up the stock market which mostly helps the rich), no artificially low interest rates (which helps the rich and the big banks with their 'carry trade' with the Fed), no skewed CPI to make inflation seem lower (which allows all the above plus massive fiscal deficits) and smaller federal budgets (which hurts lobbyist's and the military industrial complex).

    The good news is that just such an economic disaster is (IMO) probably within a decade of occurring.

    The bad news is that just such an economic disaster is (IMO) probably within a decade of occurring.

    The American voter.

    It'll never happen.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Either option will quickly be co-opted. If you want reform, remove all money from politics and do true federally funded elections. Then you have to come up with something to keep these guys from cashing in on any deals after their term is up. Like enforced retirement with a pension or something.
