    I read that poorly too... I thought you said that makes "no" sense... not more sense.. No idea what is wrong with me today.

    On a related note, I wasn't aware of the history behind the 27th amendment.

    Over 200 years from submission to ratification, daaaaaaamn.
    Education.

    Definitely the 5th, although the 4th is a close second. The war on drugs and war on terror operate almost entirely without due process. Asset forfeiture without trials literally happens every day of the week.

    None of those examples are acceptable to me.

    I'm talking complete removal of money from politics.
    No contributions to politicians campaigns are allowed.
    No spending by politicians on campaigns are allowed.
    No contributions to or spending from 3rd parties on behalf of a politician or their campaign is allowed.
    No significant gifts from anyone, including family members.
    Politicians are not allowed to maintain any prior investments of any form, or make any new ones for a period of time beginning when they announce their intention to campaign and extending until 5 years after their last term ends.
    Politicians are not allowed to create or sell any products or media for the same period of time.
    Politicians are not allowed to


    I could go on.
    All of those are great ideas. But I think that even a little reform would go a long way, such as a ban on corporate donations and a either a cap or a total ban on individual donations would go a long way. Would you support replacing donations and the like with public funding for campaigns? I don't think it's going to be practical, especially for the uneducated or undereducated voter, if a candidate doesn't have the means to advertise. That being said, political advertising should severely restricted, IMO.

    But, in short, if you decide to become a politician, you give up all rights to any other source of income until 5 years after you leave office.

    **** I dunno.


    Edit: It's kinda like going to prison, or something, except it's voluntary.
    As long as there is somewhat decent pay for representatives, so that someone in lower incomes could practically run for the position, I'd say we should put as much scrutiny, especially when dealing with financial affairs, on our political representatives as possible.

    4th, 9th, and 10th pop out. Those are not even so much "poorly enforced" as much as they are systematically destroyed.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
