4. Remove the influence of private financial contributions and of lobbyists on members of Congress in the traditional way. The Library of Congress will create a website that will become an online forum and clearinghouse for all public policy advocacy. All positions and arguments will be publicized. Everyone will know who is lobbying for what and why. Publicly provide the same finances to the political campaigns of the seven largest national political parties, and give all seven parties equal public exposure.

5. Elect the U.S. House of Representatives through a system of Proportional Representation, and abolish the U.S. Senate: Why should California and Wyoming have the same number of senators when California's population is about 70 times greater? The seven largest national political parties will be empowered in a single-chambered, national legislature. Under proportional representation, the National Green Party, for example, may get 15 percent of the vote in the 435-membered House of Representatives. Indiana's population currently allows it to have ten members in the House of Representatives. But it may be that of the seven national political parties, the Indiana Republican Party will get to select five of Indiana's ten representatives in the House of Representatives because Indiana is a conservative state.
