My unAmerican solutions to the multiple problems discussed by you are the following:
1. The CEOs of all failed banks be fired and their properties confiscated. (Confiscation of property is a common Chinese penalty.)
2. Flippers of houses who caused much of the foreclosure problem be made to flip burgers at minimum wage for life. (All of the houses foreclosed for sale in my neighborhood belong to flippers. None is a primary residence of anyone.)
3. Campaign fund raising be made illegal. Funding comes from #1 above. (The golden parachute money is more than enough. If the Rep money comes from Rep CEO's and Dem money comes from Dem CEO's, they'll fire more CEO's.)
4. The Constitution be amended to restrict the services of members of Congress to two terms only, with a third term permitted only if they can hunt a moose or know the dates of the Civil War. (That means no one will ever serve a third term.)
5. The two parties be abolished, with their presidential candidates chosen by lottery among all US citizens, including all lunatics and criminals, over age xxx.
6. All media organizations and employees must announce in public the candidates of their choice and not pretend ridiculously that they are neutral and only reporting. ( You had trouble seeing the whole Dem Convention, which I was able to see with the Time-Warner cable. But I wasn't able to see most speeches delivered at the Rep Convention when the broadcasters focused on the protests, with the protestors speaking at great length.)
7. Candidates must debate while being hypnotized and also hooked to a lie detector. They must be sequestered for a month before the debate so that they can't just read and regurgitate the same thing prepared by others over and over. Public speeches must not repeate the same slogans.
8. Politicians can only drink milk from China with lead!
