Nationalize all the banks! Keep all the employees and managers, they are government employees from now on. Their HUGE profits now go to the federal government. Eventually, individual taxation shall no longer be needed. And the bank's risky schemes shall no longer take place, or be supervised by government, now present at all board meetings. I see this as the only path to a saner economy.
One person one vote, iniversal access through the postal service, which serves every American in every community.. Everyone gets a ballot and signs with their unique fingerprint. No machines that can be hacked and not traced. Only paper ballots. We should be required to vote or pay a penalty and pass a simple citizen awareness test at 18 when we become eligible to vote. Corporations, businesses and lobbyists should be banned from the political process . Gov. of by and for the people.
Cleave large corporations so none are too large to fail. A side effect would be to stimulate competition. Another side effect would be reduction of corporate control of government. Limit bank operations to the state in which each is incorporated. Modify patent law in some areas to stimulate idea sharing rather than hoarding.
We already have term limits in the form of election days. However, we are not allowed to choose who runs congressional committees, and, thereby, wield strong influence over what legislation is promoted, heard by the public, and voted on by each of the houses. Therefore, there should be a maximum term limit of 6 years for anyone to serve as a committee's chairperson within the house to which they were elected.
The Great Hat Race! AKA This Game Has Rules AKA The Goddess Has Returned TGHR A simple acronym, or a race to radically heal our cultural wounds? Or both? :-D Our systemic "problems" have a systemic cause -- the dis-ease (the lack of ease, the lack of peace) in each of us. Some more that others. If you want to change the world, ha! Good luck. However, perhaps you can understand the world. Perhaps you can understand yourself. Know thyself. The rest is details.
Recognize the need for paradigm change in education - the need to replace "student progress based on time" with "student progress based on learning", which requires personalized learning and competency-based learning and assessment. Create government incentives and supports, like those described in the book, "Reinventing Schools," to help school systems to transform to the learner-centered paradigm.
End using Rainforest Lands for growing commercial crops. Rainforest territory must be returned to native forest and habitat for indigenous people and animals. Likewise, end using Native Lands and Public Lands for mining or any commercial business. Native Lands belong to Native Americans and Indigenous peoples. Public Lands belong to The People.
We need a Vision that is based on human and planetary values. One vision that we could look to for guidance is the Native American philosophy of determining how each decision, each action will affect Life for 7 generations to come. We need to value children first and foremost; and meet their needs of genius, creativity, and freedom. Next we need to value families - mothers, fathers, and communities. We need to value Mother Earth and take care of her rather than destroying her.

Pass a Constitutional Amendment acknowledging explicitly the Government's inherent DUTY to regulate its elections according to each individual citizen's equal right to speak DURING campaigns corresponding to their equal Voice/Vote at the END. Legislation can then be passed that enforces it at local, State, and Federal levels by monetary and media measures, allowing fine-tuning.
Train veterans to clear out the back log for veteran's benefits. Our veterans deserve better than years of waiting; they, already, fought for us, they shouldn't have to keep fighting, when they get home for the benefits they have earned. Training veterans to do the work will kill two birds with one stone: give veterans jobs and clear out the back log.
Early screening in schools for mental health. Improving cognitive function for those at risk with cognitive training paired with vocational services: placement and support combined with computer based cognitive training exercises, a social information processing group and a work feedback group to lead to improvements in executive function and working memory
We understand that Social Security is a benefit that citizens and employers pay into- it is not free money from the government. Having said that, because we are in a country that encourages free enterprise- a place where you can live the life you want, we should have access to earned funds for a one time, penalty free withdrawal up to $10,000. This will gives citizens the opportunity realize enrichment, education or entrepreneurial pursuits...whatever they wish.
