"How to fix the mess"... I fully agree with your solutions 2 through 6, however number one will never work (example: Putin/Mevedev's Russian waltz). Instead how about a constitutional amendment (harder to change) that requires all Senators to be elected by their state legislatures (which the founding fathers had originally put in place) and that all congressmen and their staffs' salaries be paid by their respective states and not the federal government. This makes them all accountable to the people and their states as it should be.
