  1. Electoral Reform (1 Page, 9 Points)

    Working with ideas from Ralph Nader, Jim Turner, and Christina Tobin, I and others have put together an Electoral Reform program that is implementable by 4 July 2011 in time to rescue our democracy for 2012. Search for the title to see this at Huffington Post and Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog. There is NOTHING wrong with America that cannot be fixed by restoring the INTEGRITY of our democratic process. IMHO.

    • Politicians.... Do away with the "parties"

      Politicians - One term limits. $50,000 a year salary. No pension. No health care. No retirement plan. No lobbyists. No immunity from the laws. If you vote for a war... you have to serve on the front lines for 2 years to show your belief that it is a just cause!

      • We need a "Main Street March on Washington"

        It's time for the low and middle class to stand up and say "enough". No one in Washington is listening so we as a people need to get louder. I think Dylan Ratigan and Ed Schultz would be great candidates to organize this.

          • Convene a constitutional convention

            2/3rds of the state legislatures need to vote to convene a Constitutional Convention to update the document for the 21st century.

            It is currently the oldest document used to govern a western country. It needs to be examined and changed to reflect new realities and ideas. Some of the language needs to be updated and clarified.

            This would provide more clarity as to the will of the people and allow the country to function better and be more productive.

            • Truth in Politics: If a Politician Appears on Public Airwaves,Mandatory Fact Checks Crawl Onscreen

              Broadcasters should be required to subscribe to an independent, third party fact checking service, like C-span, that scrolls facts in real time across the screen in a crawler, while a politician is talking.

              • Evaluate the Credibility of News Sources in Real Time

                With today's balkanization of new and the existence of organizations dedicated to producing false news and false science, we have lost the ability as a society to even agree on what the facts are. What is needed is a app/add-on/service that evaluates the credibility of a news outlet based on their track record. This would be something like the seller ratings that online retailers provide, showing both the quality and quantity of seller activity. I don't care who gets the credit, I just want this done to marginalize the liars and extremists who are destroying our country.

                      • Modern Gun Culture is not what the Founders intended

                        Modern technology could not have been forseen when the founders legislated "the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." From now on, gun lovers should be able to own any gun invented before 1791, without restriction. These were single-shot, inaccurate, and slow to reload. Modern killing machines would be subject to common sense restrictions.

                        • Stop Job Discrimination in America

                          Job discrimination is a real problem that is being over looked especially by in the political arena. Congress and the Senate often choose to down play the problem and sometimes ignore it completely. A person's right to work effects more than just than their ability to but trival things. You need income to keep a roof over your head, go to the doctor,eat properly-The Basic Needs. But people are legally being allow to bring their personal beliefs to the job and use that as a "reason" to not hire or fire someone. Employment should be based on ability, references and…

                            • Check President Obama's Birth Certificate

                              Business investment is driven by stability and a reliance on the rule of law. If there is a possibility of sudden political change, investment will not occur.

                              The birth certificate issue is significant and preventing investment in this country. As long as this remains unresolved many investors will remain on the sidelines.

                              Encourage the House Oversight Committee to subpoena the document and decide decisively whether he has the constitutional right to serve in the office of President.

                              • End farm subidies

                                Farm and dairy subsidies make no economic sense and are a huge drain on the US Treasury. We should be able to make products that can compete on the world stage. We are currently protecting this industry and it is responding by producing low quality products.

                                We should open our boarders and allow food and dairy imports from fully certified plants and farms. Prices would be market based, quality would improve and we would save billions.

                                • It is time for a DREAM TEAM to be declared by the republican party.

                                  Instead of pitting some of our best candidates against one another in the primaries...let's hold our own nationwide primary to select the best TEAM to start out as our candidates for President & Vice President...establish TEAMS instead of individual races. At my website, www.fly.to/rbstone, find out who I suggest as MY DREAM TEAM and why. r.b. stone, fayetteville, NC

                                  • Truth in advertising

                                    Friends,

                                    I just created a petition entitled Attorney General Holder: Enforce "Truth in Advertising Laws" on Political Ads., because I care deeply about this very important issue.

                                    I'm trying to collect 100 signatures, and I could really use your help.

                                    To read more about what I'm trying to do and to sign my petition, click here:

                                      • Force politicians to wear racing suits with donor patches. Tell us who owns them.

                                        I know who sponsors Jeff Gordon. Likewise, we should require our politicians to wear a racing suit that has a patch for every donor over $10,000 (because let's face it, money don't start talking until you're talking 10 large, right?). They should have to wear one once a month and if they are found to have left off a patch, they are disqualified.
