  1. inform the nation about The Orion Project - it is set up to stop the suppression of inventions.

    I have recently taken up a cause to inform as many people as possible about the The Orion Project www.orionproject.org. I invite you to check the subject website. It is a group whose mission is to remove the suppression of inventions by special interest groups. There is much to add. The suppression by the oil cartel and others involves such tactics as murder, intimidation, censorship, and buying out inventions and hiding them in the patent office. Please check the web site, then if you find it consistent with your ethics join the official Face Book page ‘The Orion Project’.…

    • Balance: Equate Labor & Union Rights with Shareholder Rights

      Demand an end to journalists' one-sided examination of labor unions & labor rights WITHOUT the counter-balancing, off-setting "Shareholder Rights" examination. e.g., demanding labor contributions to be volunteer to political action committees WITHOUT demanding likewise with shareholders' money is bias and short-sighted, not to mention one-sided.

      • Increase military strength to Cold War levels and FIRE Civilian contractors.

        If the military had soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines doing the things that provide them with bridges, beans, bunks, and bullets, we wouldn't NEED the civilian contractors - it would most likely save money - it would certainly be better for our reputation - and in peacetime, instead of reducing the force, we could put those military personnel "on detail" rebuilding our infrastructure. I really don't think it would take away jobs - because labor is such a big part of the expense, many jobs go unfunded and undone. THIS labor would be free.

        • Stop large companies, organization from contributing to polical campaines.

          Stop large companies and organization from polical contribution and lobbing.

          Past a constitution amendment which only allows a vote to contribute. Another way of looking at this is to say, that only and indiviual ( one vote) can contribute to canidates or lobby on thier behave.
          This is in direct contrast to the Supreme courts ruling which was making anyone or thing that pays taxes the right of a voter.

          • Dedicate % of Media Airtime Free for Political Candidates/Initiatives

            This would reduce the need for fund-raising instead of governing. The airwaves have been "sold" to the corporate media by the government. I propose that a certain percentage of airtime be divided amongst finalists in elections, so that it removes the requirement to raise money to support media expenditures.

            • Invest in your country, in the people, and in the future.

              1. Invest in your country: That is energy independence for security and jobs. Also a new air traffic control system that will save 12% on fuel. The savings to the airlines can go to build new aircraft. A high speed internet system. Perhaps high speed rail.

              2. Invest in your people: That is mandatory vocational training. We live in a globalized world and you can no longer rely on factories. We have to be an educated society.

              3. Invest in the future: Federal research grants to be given to universities and business to bring out new technologies. Today there are…

                • Small scale modular nuclear reactors. Economical, safe, green, high paying jobs. Lots of steel!

                  There are several start-ups developing small, 50-125MW nuclear reactors. If we chose to, we could accelerate their deployment and produce thousands of skilled manufacturing jobs, and thousands of MW of CO2 friendly, clean energy. We have all of the raw materials in America and the labor and IP to get this done now. The safety benefits of going smaller are enormous.

                  • Balanced Budget Ammendment for Federal Funds (general fund); AND no looting Trust Funds surpluses

                    Federal deficits would be even more insideous if not for the immoral act of Washington looting of OUR SS, Medicare and other Trust Funds of their surpluses. Federal Funds (the general fund) harbors greater deficts than is widely reported, due to the fact Washington loots the Trust Funds to help pay gov operations.

                      Take the cap off of SS tax and contribute until you no longer work. Then rich continues to pay like everyone else.

                      • In a post Olbermann platform, move BOTH Dylan and Cenk Uygur into msnbc's primetime

                        America's problems are deep. They need address and journalistic focus. Few primetime soapbox platforms truly exist in America to address them in any meaningful, educational way. Dylan is doing so, and so is his frequent guest commentator and sub, young turk Cenk Uygur. MSNBC can elect to simply throw red meat to its audience, cross its fingers in hopes it can substain some viewership... OR... throw two stellar talents into its primetime who actually address BIG PICTURE issues and substance and tailor their program for progressives, independents, and moderate republicans. Dylan & Cenk are those voices... ready to lead in…

                        • When Unemployment is high, revise welfare laws to help unemployed remain fiscally sound

                          When the unemployment rate goes above, say 7.5 percent, the welfare laws should include emergency financial relief for those unemployed when all unemployment insurance benefits are exhausted. This would help prevent homelessness, and would help sustain the economy from further collapse.

                          • Ajust retire age to the job market and go back to how you can make an still draw social security

                            Instead of paying a young person with a family unemployment let a older person retire early. young people with a family and home payments need more to live on then a older worker with some savings. Also we need to go back to ajusting how much you can make and still draw full s.s. It would encourage some older people to retire and free up those jobs for younger workers.

                                  • Pay down the debt.

                                    Our debt can be reduced by creating a new transaction fee of 1 penny per item sold or traded, with no exceptions. With the trillions of transactions processed each year, including the computerized trading on the stock exchanges, we could reduce the debt by hundreds of billions of dollars per year. Once it is paid off, it would be a new source of revenue to reduce other taxes or to fund new programs.

                                    • Grow Jobs with Sunlight

                                      Build solar power plants funded 100% by tax and ratepayers. Use the revenues created from the sale of the solar electricity to enlarge the plants. The larger they get, the more they produce and get even larger. This will grow jobs with sunlight!
