We need a constitutional amendment that allows for the complete public financing of all elections. Each candidate shall receive the same amount of money from the government (via the taxpayers) and they cannot receive funds from any other source. This removes corporate influence and the "constant campaign" syndrome that most elected officials suffer from. This needs to be a constitutional amendment to protect the law from the Supreme Court's previous ruling on campaign finance reform attempts (i.e. McCain - Feingold).
The OWS movement needs to focus on this one single issue. It is the path to victory.
