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.
Voting should be mandatory, you should only be able to opt out by physically going to the polling facility and voting to opt out of that particular election. Voting should be done in person on paper ballots with a representative from each party stationed at each voting station. Ballots would be counted there in front of everyone before leaving the building and posted in the media. This would make it impossible to fake election results. This system works well in Australia.
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....
One big RE-Election ASAP because of the outrageous amounts of dark money that bought the last one. Candidates will only be allowed a set number of television/radio/newspaper advertisements and a set number of mailers & street signs. They will be required to participate in multiple live aired debates. Voting machines will be prohibited; paper ballots only. Voting will be mandatory with fine imposed on those who don't. Election day will be a national holiday so everyone can make it to the polls.
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.
Cap on corporate size and personal wealth: Define Foreign individuals companies and corporations whose wealth and/or size exceed American Cap Limits as terrorists and/or terrorist organizations and forbid imports from same. Penalty for noncompliance: Life imprisonment under House Arrest for individuals, officers and 100 hundred largest shareholders.
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,
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.
