It's impossible to have untainted politics, but that doesn't mean we can't do anything to make it better. It's clearly possible to have more corrupt politics than in the US, so the same could be said of having less corrupt politics.

Getting rid of career politicians would go a long way. That was never intended to be an occupation in the US, but instead a brief term of service (a sacrifice).

It would be nice if something caused all the mountains of law and regulation to be lost and we had to start over (which is inevitable by the way). We'd all be standing around asking what laws we need, and we'd start with don't kill anyone, don't take their stuff, and don't make libelous claims.
