    Do you even begin to think that the Congress which would have to set all that up would ever do so? If you do, then why not also wish for all mankind to live in peace, love, and plenty. Unfortunately, without the intervention of an all loving God, that is not going to happen. And, believe me, I am truly, truly sorry about that!!

    As Clark Kent, plus make lobbying for money a serious offense like bribing an official.

    I was going to comment, but Clark Kent and The Trusted Mechanic already expressed my view.

    That sounds great, but the SCotUS already ruled that money is protected speech. You’d have to amend the Constitution, and that thought scares the #$%^ out of me. God knows what special interests would have their politicians-for-hire write into that amendment.

    Almost, ALMOST a gold post.
    Chinese donated quite a chunk of cash to the Democrats, which no doubt helped Clinton’s reelection and the Chinese in turn received technology to upgrade their ballistic missile systems

    A sample amendment: "Corporations are not people, speech is not money, and the source of campaign contributions must be publicly declared prior to any and all elections. "

    I might agree with you, but corporations are taxed.

    “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.” — July 4, 1776.

    Good idea on the campaign rules but there is a free speech issue, plus that short of a campaign would give the government too much control. How could we vet anything.

    Forcing people who have no interest in voting to vote? Yeah, that’s brilliant. You may vote, but you sure as heck don’t think.
