    More research my arse! Here’s the solution: (1) Demand federal income tax rates rolled back to levels during the Eisenhower administration when the top earners paid 91 percent; (2) Demand an annual 100 percent wealth tax on personal assets greater than $100 million; (3) Nationalize the major energy, transportation, health care, etc. industries; (4) Hard-time prison terms for corporate executives who defraud customers or knowingly pollute the environment while hiding behind the corporate shield(5) Eliminate the oceans of money that controls elections; (6) Make sure that legislatures realize that they are either part of the solution or part of the problem (7) Ignore the naysayers who whine that it’s too hard; (8) Never give up.
