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 USA is #19 from least... More > 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 long-term federal balanced budget and just and fair and simple taxation. 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 solution for just this problem: the states calling an Article V Convention to Propose Amendments.< Less
