Whom we elect President is very important, but there's something else where we as voters together have far, far more power to Make Our America Even Better. Too often our government is about alienating or taking advantage of one group, or of all America, in order to get favors for a special interest. We do have leaders who are the exception, but this is the overall system, and it is a corrupt system. Indeed, there's an international rating of countries by how corrupt they are, called the Corruptions Perceptions Index -- from least corrupt at #1 to most corrupt at #175. The U.S.A. is #19 from least corrupt -- tied with Uruguay. Not bad maybe, but we can do better. The reason we're not higher is how much special interests control our government. This book suggests some reforms to discuss and consider to end corruption, such as proportional representation, public campaign financing, term limits, ranked-choice and "none of the above" voting, and combining these with a Council for a long-term federal balanced budget and just and fair and simple taxation, for a just and fair and thriving economy for all. Many of these require Constitutional Amendments. But Congress proposes Amendments, and the incumbents in Congress are unlikely to propose these reforms, because they would change how the people in Congress become incumbents in the first place. However, our Founding Framers gave us a nonpartisan solution for just this problem: the states calling an Article V Convention to Propose Amendments.
