    • Different sources of fuel

      I believe that we need to get away from oil and go to natural ways of making energy such as sun light ,water and ,wind to generate electricity and use those same technologies for transportation . more so than we do now . The short term would be expensive but in the long term it would break oil company's grip on this nation ,we could bring allot of our troops back home our enviroment could actually try and heal from all of the damage that was cause dby the pollution of gas powered cars and so forth. I say every…

Time is now stand united or fall divided

        • National Website- America’s Direction and Destination.

          When you get into a car you have a “direction” to drive the car and a “destination” you wish to reach. Correct? Where is America going, and where our desired destination? It would look like we want to destroy ourselves and any future of mankind the way were heading currently. Why? We are destroying ourselves because we can’t agree on where we wish America to head and when we get to our destination. Were blind, driving a smog producing, gas guzzling, death trap, circling in a parking lot, going nowhere, hoping we don’t fall off a cliff. Sound smart?..... not. …

          • Pay as you Go or Sliding Scale on Voting

            Pay as you go. If the national deficient is 35% or more of GDP then the current generation must reduce it’s federal retirements, S.S. and healthcare services of the it’s current retiree’s or raise the age to retire until the debt is 35% or less of GDP. Taxing the children, enslaving them in debt, or massive reduction in future benefits, to pay for the mistakes of the elders is morally wrong and a poor example of acting responsible.
            Or
            Make a sliding scale on voting. This is based on life experience and your future benefits from your current decisions. A…

            • Americans citizen must pay, or the government must fund, a Freedom Fee

              I think we all know that bribes, or “campaign contributions” to our government officials are running and ruining America. Campaign contributions are controlling our political system, destroying our freedoms and has enslaved with us an unscrupulous national debt.
              Solution?
              Everyone must pay tax to vote, if you do or don’t vote. You still have to pay a fee. You are forced to pay car insurance and soon health insurance, and state, and national tax, if not your fined and possible put in jail. Tax is just part of America. Call this a Freedom Fee.
              This is how it works. Every…

              • Women Need to Empower Themselves

                I believe it was the greeks who said "Nothing in Excess."
                What we have is an excess of testosterone - we have gone too male and female characteristics, traits, values and energy aren’t empowered to balance it.
                But how can women balance men? Women are told their characteristics are weak. Go to any group discussion and someone will post a Havard Business Review article telling women the reason they are not getting ahead is because they are too timid, lack self-confidence and the solution is for them to act more like men. Male traits dominate and overpower female. That’s jsut…

                • Two Education Reforms--End Discrimination Based on University and Tie Costs of Education to Career Success

                  With the advent of institutions such as Udacity and Coursera, it's quite clear that it's more than feasible to automatically vet job candidates for knowledge, without needing to take up a human being's time. This means that a university name and GPA, which are supposedly proxies for knowledge, no longer need to be taken into account, if candidates can simply be tested for that knowledge itself. And since candidates can simply be tested for knowledge itself, then that means that where a candidate went to school should have no bearing on whether or not he or she gets an interview.…

                    • SOCIAL SECURITY/SOLUTION

                      There are sets of shareholders under social security. One set is the employers; the other set is the employees. Each set contributed equal shares on a regular basis. Congress was suppose to be the guardian of the program. However, congress never paid anything into the system and yet without asking the shareholders for permission to take their money out of the system; congress went and took it anyway. If this occurred in the private sector; those folks would have been prosecuted for fraud. Therefore, force congress to repay to the system the entire amount that they illegally took out plus…

                        • Require everyone to contribute 2 years of national service

                          One of the things we are missing in the UNITED States of America is something that unites all of us in common endeavors that strengthen our nation.
                          This relates to several "categories" (education, environment, employment, energy, technology).

                          WHEN? After high school, after graduating from college (or at the time of dropping out of high school or college). Perhaps with the requirement to be satisfied (for youth) by the time they reach the age of 26 or 28?

                          HOW? It would require establishing programs (combination of government and industry) for young people and would be mandatory for ALL, even handicapped people…

                                • Fusion power.

                                  We need a manhattan project or space project to finish developing fusion power. The Britts already have a working prototype. That prototype produces more power than it takes to generate. It just needs to be expanded upon to fit commercial applications.
                                  MIT has been working on this project since the 1940's. They been funded by congress for 60 years with lack luster results. We should take this funding and put it in a cooperative program with Britts. Imagine not having to pay for fuel your car. The only thing to pay for is infrastructure.

                                      • Infromation and education

                                        Is it possible to bring money from wealthy and not so wealthy people who share your views and passion to create PSAs to air on major networks that will inform and educate people on what is really going on in this country. People like Matt Damon share your outrage as do I. Forget campaign adds how about some "truth telling". Not everyone can buy your book or see your program. Information is power. We need facts not marketing ploys that extract our money.
