The underlying issue of all this corruption is the ability of private money to influence legislation and other political affairs. Take away this ability and the government can start to work for the 99% rather than the 1% who are dishing out money to greedy politicians.
As I see it, the only way to do this is to create a bill that would restrict all present and future politicians from accepting any private money. Also, we would have to find a politician (or two or twelve) that would be willing to risk his or her seat in order to present it to the proper governmental legislation.
Think of the implications this law would have; equal campaigning, uncompromised law makers, freedom to enact stricter environmental and trade laws, et cetera.
Plus I have a sweet chant to go along with it: SE-PA-RATE CORP. AND STATE! SE-PA-RATE CORP. AND STATE! ... One can dream...
