What would it take to truly reform our political system of government, so that we eliminate corruption, and can have a peaceful, realistic, and just government?

When the forefathers first created this great republic, was it at least a workable solution? Grant it, the character of the people at the time was a contributing factor to its early success. Two things got in the way of the early republic and its Constitution, which expressed high hopes in its declaration of, "We the people of the United States". That was the slave trade, and the indigenous American Indian population. You can easily see the dichotomy between the high ideals of the Constitution, and the realities of daily life.

Another aspect to look at, considering the early republic, was the fact that, Jefferson and Madison were vehemently opposed to Washington and Hamilton over their approach to the executive office, and the banking system. So we can see that unity is important in order to run a government. Some of the founding fathers were opposed to the formation of a Central Banking system. Others were in favor of a Central Bank. So from 1781-1913, the United States experimented with different banking systems. In 1913 the Federal Reserve System was created, and the central banking system in the United States was born. There was a sinister side to private banks, as one famous banker wrote: " Give me the ability to control a nations money and I care not who makes its laws".------Mayer Anschel Bauer Rothschild. I could go into more detail about the pitfalls of private banking, however; most of you already know what they are.

Now, given this mix in a governing system it's easy to see how things can start to unravel. So what is needed to keep it from unraveling? Well, I think that getting rid of private banks in favor of national banks is the first step. Secondly, why have a two party political system. Why not have a one party system, in order to promote unity instead of divisiveness. I also think centralized government is not such a good idea. We should give back more power and decision making to the states. The executive office should be made to work more closely with Congress. We need to pour more money into "smarting up America", instead of dumbing down of America. The first order after getting a core of extremely qualified candidates, is to find out where all the money is, and have a redistribution of wealth. Since we all know that this money was taken from the working class, because the rich generally don't produce goods and services.

So now we have a core group of government officials who have gotten a hold of the money. The first order of business, is to stop all wars except those defenses needed to keep our citizens safe. Redirect that money into education, and job creation. Make it hard for big corporations to outsource jobs. Have those government officials do away with draconian laws like the Patriot Act, and the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.

The 14th , 16th, and 23rd, amendments to the Constitution should either be abolished or revised. In general a tone and prosecution of violators of the law including high ranking citizens and political leaders should be observed.

I want to also mention that "individualism" is a dangerous concept, and family values should be taught, since we identify with our families, and get our strength and resources from family.

There are many more issues to address, however, I think this formula would be a good start. Will it work? Maybe, maybe not. Can it be done? If enough people wanted to do something in unison, it can be done. After all we are Americans, we can move mountains if need be.
