1)Term limits to all politicians.
2)Spending caps on the government.
3)Legalize all drugs.(effectively ending the fake war on drugs and killing the black market for drugs)
4)Create a voter app so that people can vote on their iphone,andriod, or symbian device.
5)Create an alternative mainstream media outlet that is not corporate controlled via the internet.
Term limits are a must - and this position should not have a dual role (running country and salesman). It should not be a job that gives one the best
of the best of the best of "every human want and need. Power, glory, riches, excitement, adoration, servants, etc, etc. That is dangerous and the
greatest temptation to behave badly. We have to take back power since we are contributing to the preverbal carrot for these guys (wish they were
strong enough but they are human).
If the public demanded this of every new politician - to enact some of the ideas agreed upon by most we could see a shift. Because they are so large
and powerful there could be more lies to get elected. But...try long enough it becomes salient in the population and eventually happens.
How about: (maybe)
Public funding of campaigns maybe - no fundraising Everyone gets an equal amount. You know that 3.00 check mark you can put on your taxes - just
make it mandatory and that's it - no more, not even their own money.
Somehow take the partisanship out.
Exploitation of any disaster or traumatic event is tightly controlled - so there is none. When the public is at its most vulnerable the government
cannot capitalize off of this to make themselves more powerful and the public more dependent.
Checks and balances for major media by uninterested persons from various agencies (NGO's maybe). Illegal to give one candidate more attention than
another or to endorse one over the other. Any evidence of this - license suspension . These outlets carry a lot of power and weight in elections and
since they cannot be ethical on their own should have regulations imposed. Have to be unbiased on "all" levels.
