    Ultimately, the consumer decides that.  If the consumer turns against a corporation, they will change their behavior or go under.

    Make lobbying illegal. You shouldn't be able to buy policies. Also, term limits for all offices. If we legalized canings and stopped putting rich people in more luxurious prisons, they'd be afraid to wrong us. Currently, they've got our balls in a vise. The media is trying to make us tribalist so that we ignore the wrongdoings of our respective teams, and they can continue to be corrupt. We need to make people fear consequences and hold them accountable. We also have to put this pissing contest attitude to bed. We can't hold people accountable for things we ignore, and our representatives doing wrong doesn't make each and every single one of us wrong. It doesn't help anyone to sweep wrongdoing under the rug, and our egotism is holding us back. I don't see these changes being made though. People are vain, and the truth is all it takes to make someone unhinged these days.

    Profit is not a bad word.

    Profit = creation of wealth = more prosperity.

    In 2018 and 2019, we saw Trump's economic policies kick in and we saw Profits go up, unemployment go down to record low levels, and lower income folks getting bigger pay raises than their bosses!

    That's probably more on voters to HONESTLY evaluate their leaders as well as prospective ones to determine if they are or not.

    We're well past that point... like 40 years past. The US is on the decline and the only way to stop it is campaign finance reform. It's the lynchpin.
