Obviously, its the first one.

That being said, throw them all out, replace with 99ers and all your goals are done

Remove corporate money, Remove walls t money. Those humans would be left with so much time on their hands. EXPAND { pushing barrierers and planting seeds ] is the dream of what would come. I am under the influence that if left with TIME we all come to the truth. Stand up. protest. block the intersections. occupy the bank lobbies. Can you at all see what we can do ?

Congress won't change, some of the Congressman and members of the House have been there for decades.

I worked for the DOE for years an a contractor, I'd LOVE to see any of our politicians go through a background check you'd need for a typical security clearance, and then random drug and alcohol testing like much of the workforce has to do. Yeah, keep on dreaming.

Nothing can be achieved as long as the majority opinion is under the influence (control) of a corporate-controlled media. I'm talking about the majority of the 99% who is not out marching in the streets..

It would take... so much time and so much man power to get people to vote on every issue. That's sort of why we elect representatives to... ya know... represent our views. The problem is, like the OP says, nobody has paid attention to who they're voting for for the past 2 decades.

I suggest creating a parallel voting system so the people vote on issues can be known

someone suggest in article 5 (the measure to amend the constitution) could be called by 2/3 of the state legislator
