We have one home, Earth. Every decision made, political, economic, industrial, or agricultural should be made intelligently and passionately with great regard for our environment. If an intended action or policy were to have a negative impact on our environment it would be reworked to create a positive result with no negative impact at a minimum. If there was an essential program or policy etc. there could be mitigation on a different site that was environmentally damaging or degraded.
A constitutional amendment to change our two party system to a parliamentary system where greater amount of the populace are represented. Instead of only the Richest people having & corporations having a voice. This would bring more people in to the activities of the Government, stronger turn out at the voting poles, and better choice as to where our monies are spent. Like less military, more Education, and Environmental concerns. Break away from fossil fuels, Green Power Grids, etc....
Universal income to offset advances in automated working system, changing market forces, and long-term, systemic favorable bias toward capital interests in both policy and regulations. Paid through a negative income tax to all adult citizens age 18 and over no matter what their current state of employment or ability to work may be.
End corporate lying for profit. In honor of Dr. Clair Cameron Patterson who fought multinational oil and gas corporations to prove that lead in paint and gasoline can fatally harm people; we must end the for profit science liars like Robert A. Kehoe by punishing the corporations who employ them. The tobacco science wars have evolved into the climate science, chemical pollution dumping and GMO science wars. The US have the most relaxed regulations and relaxed enforcement.
Pass an amendment to the constitution that citizens are the sole managers of their bodies, property, and residences. That no government or private entity can infringe upon that right, unless the citizen is causing harm to another. Thus we will have the right to die, to have sex however we want, to refuse a draft, to take any drug we need, to grow any type of drug W/O taxation, and more. Imagine a world where drugs cost pennies w/o legal issues. It was pre-WW1 and a golden era in history.
This is long term - but should we be thinking now about how to create a "post-jobs" world? One can imagine a time not too far away when automation will do most tasks handled by humans today. We're all so used to money and jobs that it's difficult to imagine anything else. The traditional response to this possibility is: "we'll just create new technologies, new products, and the game will go on as before". I'm not so sure.
education is out of date and over rated , most of our schooling has nothing to do with the real world of today and most anything of desire to be learned can be learned on line , demand of tax dollars for education that is of nothing of the future and training for jobs skills that there are no jobs for is a waste of tax dollars , on the job training is of more common sense
Institute a basic stipend/check for every citizen of the US to ensure no one lives in poverty. Inflation has stolen everything affordable and has become bankster usury that goes in the elites pockets. Along these same lines, End corporate welfare! No one should have to be on food stamps working a full time job. What we are paying in food stamps ends up in the corporations bottom line and the elites pockets and not in the pockets of the citizens where it belongs.
Public funding of election campaigns--something similar to the British system, with strictly enforced caps on private funds raised, would return government to the people. It would do an end run around Citizens United. Establish a national initiative process, similar to the initiative process that is legal in 24 states, to give the people a voice in making laws that Congress would never pass because they're not in their best interests, such as limiting Congressional benefits and pay,
Grant Conditional Residency to any immigrant who starts or purchases a business within 1 year of the grant. Period. Waive all grounds of inadmissibility other than INA § 212(d)(14) (Nazis, Persecutors, major crimes, and terrorists). Immigrants start businesses at rates higher than native-born. Immigrants drive our economy through innovation and hard work and will contribute through business taxes, as well as payroll, sales taxes, and more. Fees will cover program costs. Demand will be amazing.
