Re: OP. One thing and one thing only? Simple. I'd require of all politicians and judges a strict Constructionist view of the COTUS informed by the supporting documents authored by the Founding Fathers. This strict Constructionist view of the COTUS would be applied without regard for how it might suit or not suit whoever might be involved regardless of if they were a minority or one of the wingtipped corporate persons.

End career politicians.

Reduce government legislature (Senate and House members) to a total of 13 (no party affiliations) and they enact legislation based on citizen approval, not based on their beliefs.

Go back to the first legislator that voted proposed spending funds from the treasury that had no constitutional basis. Sieze all assets of said individual and every legislator that voted for it. Sieze all assets of their decendants and apply it to the debt.

Bren there are a lot of women that would have a major disagreement with you.

This ^^^

Fixing the country starts with educating those who reside in it. Right now progressives have been running the education system for close to 100 years. They have been successful at getting generations of people to desire socialism. To desire communism. To desire Marxism. To think wearing Che shirts is cool. To think being rich is somehow bad. To value the collective over the individual. They are currently brainwash kids with progressive ideals and theories for more than 12 years of their lives.

Or, a TRUE FLAT TAX

Divide the federal budget by the number of citizens over the age of majority. Each adult citizen pays an equal share.

You could have people PAY to hold the office and their would be no shortage of applicants. There's just that much opportunity for graft.

The entire concept of minimum wage as opposed to free market is a large part of the problem.
