" What's required for humanity to move forward is a paradigm shift the likes of which we have yet to experience in all of recorded history. "

It's taking its time. LoL

When i was a lad, the books and publications, papers and news, promised colonies on the Moon, Mars, and under the ocean by now.

Instead, we got the information age, mobile phones, VR and Quantum computers.

Not a bad deal, and quite frankly rather impressive in its own way, yet still no colonization of low Earth orbit.

Frankly "They" did not do what it said on the tin, then again how could they, after all down that road lies true freedom and expansion, which is not exactly synonymous with there methods of control.

Space will be militarised long before its colonized which seems backward imho.

To fix the political system would require the total dismantling of our current two party dictatorship.

Conservatives and liberals (politicians) could still exist but only as PAC's which is all they are anyways.

No more party designation on any ballots period. Only the name of the person, which would require voters to educate themselves about the candidates and what they stand for.

Now people just look for the crutch designation "D" or "R" and vote for whomever it is within that designation.

Next would be to revoke all news media licenses. New applications for broadcasting would require contract signing to tell the truth and report the news. Not create it or spin it.

It won't ever happen unless a meteor wipes out North America.

1. Term limits immediately - clean house.
2. All politicians must answer to the same laws as the common people.
3. No politician shall enjoy any benefit or entitlement that they have not first secured for their constituents.
4. All politicians are held to a higher standard regarding criminal acts. Any crime automatically receives the maximum punishment allowable by law.
5. Gerrymandering ends. No district shall consist of more than five sides.
6. Lobbying ends.
7. Every member of Congress must vote yes or no on every issue. No exceptions.
8. Congress must approve a fiscal plan in a timely manner.
9. All politicians are held accountable for their campaign promises. Deliver on your word or step down.
10. Any politician that does not honor their vow of office immediately steps down and loses any and all pensions or benefits previously awarded for their position.

Teach all people to have greater integrity, compassion and patience for others, and that solutions come from compromise and unity, rather than divisiveness.

Once again we see that what we have now is NOT WORKING!

Whomever becomes President in 2021, the people of the United States are in for 4 more years of a political mess.

So I will state it again,


The President of the United States will serve only One Term.

They will have only One Term to be the best President they can be, which means making as many citizens as possible happy. Not half the population, not just their party, but everyone. One chance to make the country better off than it was when they took office.


Whatever party ends their term in the Oval Office when 2024 begins will NOT be allowed to have a candidate run for the office in the upcoming election. Meaning if a Republican President is leaving office in 2024, only a Democratic or Libertarian (Third Party) candidate may run and be in office for the next four years.


Meaning all Republicans and Libertarians will vote for who they feel is the BEST Democrat candidate available. And vice versa, depending on which party is leaving the office.

The reasoning here is to bring a centrist viewpoint to the government, instead of the two opposite viewpoints we now have. Instead of the government swaying from far right to far left and back again, in a political civil war. The political system needs to stabilize for the better. Like a good marriage, it will be constant compromise toward middle ground.

In this way all Americans can vote for whom they think is the best person in each party to be President of the United States.
