America, Canada and Mexico should all join together...
If Canada & Mexico wish to petition to become states I'd have no problem.
The disgraceful amount of military spending ...
This spending provides no return to the public and it should be curtailed in a dramatic fashion.
Patriot and other draconian legislation should be scrapped...
Legislation of this type has nothing to do with freedom or patriotism. It must be repealed.
The American media should be made to tell the truth for a change.
Local ownership of television and radio media should be required, along with aggressively forcing the media to provide equal time. These are the
public airwaves, they do not belong to the media conglomerates that tell us whatever BS they desire. The FCC should not involve itself in trivial
morality enforcement such as Janet Jackson's breasts and Prince's shadow genitalia
Education levels in the US should be raised...
Education needs to be subsidized by the government proportionately to grades up to 100% for students with a 4.0 grade point average.
people should be encouraged to travel abroad, cheaper modes of travel should be introduced, education should include the teaching of different
The government has no business encouraging or discouraging travel.
Health care should be state run with free health care for all people.
Without a doubt.
The CIA, NSA etc. should be made to account for their actions and be answerable to the people...
Black budgets & programs need to be made fully public, so that we can have strong oversight of the actions done in our name. Our enemies and allies
already know about this stuff, the only people being kept in the dark are the American people.
Nasa should not be controlled by the Military.
Both civilian and military use of space is needed. Other countries are a genuine threat in this area, so the military has its place.
We are suppose to be a constitutional republic, if this country wishes to impose gun control it must be done via a constitutional amendment. We have
a constitution for a reason and it protects us from government stupidity if we use it. Violating the constitution by invading Iraq without a
declaration war as is required by the constitution is what got us into our current predicament.
A external group of experts in every field including a group of American lay people should investigate who was really responcible for 9/11 and the
perps should be brought to justice.
Sure, but lets not bankrupt the treasury doing it. 99.9% of our resources should be used to move forward. It happened and most folks have already
decided what they believe. We will probably never get to the real truth until time and age put the key players down to RIP.
The American troops shoud be brought home from Iraq/Afganistan and reparations to those countries should be made.
In those locations and many others.
The prisoners at Gitmo should be allowed due process and the camp should be closed down.
Of course. Regardless of the actions of those that oppose the US, we need to hold ourselves to a higher standard.
