    I've always wanted politicians who get elected to abide by the Constitution and work within the LIMITS placed on the government by it. The Constitution is a plainly written, easy to read and understand document that most pandering politicians (is there a different kind?) have never bothered to read.

    I want them to pass laws or amendments that close all the legal loopholes and clear up all the ambiguity in existing laws that Trump and his cronies have been using to commit crimes, defraud the government, and install corrupt people into power, along with laying out very clear penalties to be enforced. It's completely bipartisan because it would affect any subsequent administration of any political party. I'd also like them to clear up the rules of congress so that no one person can completely block votes on issues like a dictator, eliminate gerrymandering so that congressional maps are drawn up by a nonpartisan committee, secure our elections not only from foreign influence but also domestic tampering through the use of nationally standardized and completely secured voting machines (with redundant paper record, not just electronic voting), harsh prison sentences for those who tamper with the vote or throw out ballots as has happened in the last several elections, a law or amendment that nominees for supreme court justice must receive a hearing within 30 days of nomination, no exceptions, to prevent the stonewalling like we saw against the Merick Garland nomination, and a rule that all changes to rules or reinterpretations to rules must be brought up for a vote and pass by the majority vote, if not 2/3 majority. I'd also want them to overturn the "Citizens United" ruling or overrule it with an amendment that gets money out of politics, pass a medicare for all bill so that all people can receive treatment and/or necessary medication regardless of their ability to pay, pass laws that ensure executives of corporations or banking institutions that defraud and rip off the customers/taxpayers/country actually go to prison, mandate that all nominees running for federal or state public offices (especially president) must release at least 5 years of tax returns publicly to help ensure there won't be a conflict of interest, clarify and enforce the emoluments clause as well as extend it to any legislative office to prevent profiteering by the people who write and set the laws, prohibit lobbyists from running for office, prohibit politicians leaving office from getting any sort of job with a corporation that their legislation directly benefited, prohibit politicians from serving on any committee or in any active role that would directly influence or be influenced by a corporation or industry they formerly or currently worked with (ie. installing petroleum executives in the offices of EPA, land management, department of the interior, secretary of energy, etc.), close the tax loopholes that allow multi-billion dollar corporations pay no taxes and usually even get a huge refund from the government (ie. Amazon, GE), end subsidies being paid to corporations that are turning a huge profit (like the petroleum industry), and I'd like to see politicians who are on a committee or head of a department actually be experts in that field.

    In short, I want to see good, upstanding politicians work hard to get the money, greed, and corruption out of our government. And that's just a start.

    Tax the corporations and Wall Street their fair share first and foremost.

    Take out cooperate socialism, and use those resources to help the general public instead, along with enacting FDR's Second Bill of Rights.

    Get assault rifles (a long gun, regardless of fire-rate, that chambers intermediate cartridges) out of the hands of non-military or non-law-enforcement people.

    And finally, figure out a realistic way to enact the Green New Deal.

    Source(s): Among other things, but this is a general overview. Like shred the OLC Memo that says sitting presidents can't be indicted.

      Once again a moron uses the phrase "fair share" without bothering to define it for confiscating earnings but doesn't mention that welfare parasites pay NOTHING.
