How to Get the Crime Out of Politics

I just read a really great suggestion about how to get the crime, graft, and corruption out of politics:
Call me a dreamer, but I propose a simple fix to this problem. Pay politicians more. Give these takers the chance to become rich legally.

Here is how. Let’s put every elected federal official and appointee and bureaucrat on a stock option plan. The value of these options would be tied to the health and wealth of America.
Now, that's out-of-the-box thinking!

We need to look at this and similar proposals.
