Smoking GNU: Jurodan: serial_crusher: but who monitors the monitor monitors?

"'His Grace, His Excellency, The Duke of Ankh; Commander Sir Samuel Vimes"

/If only...

If only you americans had someone like that in Washington DC.


If we had someone like that in Washington DC he'd either be assassinated, die of a heart attack, or they would move the capital.

This is actually part of what I think needs to happen for the USA to not become a plutocracy in the next decade or so.

1) Full disclosure of every lobbyist contact with any politician.
2) No more private donations - every campaign is publicly funded. When every politician has a set amount to spend, money as easily determine the election.
3) No more full pension/healthcare for politicians - your pension/healthcare is commensurate based on time served
4) A moratorium of at least 5 years before a public servant can become a lobbyist or vice versa.
