I know most people think of making America great again as something tied to who you vote for but it is much more than that.
Some things I can think of that would really make a difference:
Smaller homes being built - which later turn into downsizing homes for retirees
I know this is a complex issue. Builders don't want to build small houses and getting through red tape to build your own is
a nightmare right now. Some towns/neighborhoods outright ban certain small sized homes. We need to reverse this trend
Affordable housing is a good thing. Maybe mom or dad could even stay home with a kid if this was possible.
Speaking of housing reform, we need a total overhaul of the insurance scam. There was a time when both home and auto insurance was affordable!
I am absolutely against socialized healthcare, and as a child that grew up using Military healthcare I can tell you it was horrible! Let's face it, the healthcare in the US is broken and it is 100% because of insurance & big Pharma.
If other countries can have affordable healthcare without socialized medicine why can't we?
Along with healthcare, we need a total overhaul of our food safety. Notice how many recalls there have been lately, it will get worse
More food safety regulation
More education on home and small community gardening, organic gardening, and even inner city gardens can be successful
The food in Europe is so much more "pure" for a better word than the US. Having lived in both places it is almost shocking. Seriously folks, the food here tastes like chemicals!
Education - Property tax based funding for education should be abolished. There can be a book written about this. How are other countries ahead of us yet don't use property taxes for education?
After high school service. Some countries require students to serve in the military or other social venues for two years after graduating high school.
Man, I think this is an amazing thing. Most kids just aren't ready for college right after high school. I think those two years are key. Maybe this isn't a forced thing, maybe they offer a big discount of local college or trade school tuition after you serve. This would be different than the GI bill because every student would qualify.
Just my 2 cents for the day! Happy Friday
Flat income tax of 10% on ALL income. No deductions for any kind. I don't care if you make $1 or $100,000,000. Income tax is 10%. EVERYONE pays and has skin in the game.
