Reclaiming Government for the PEOPLE.

Establish best practices commissions on every spending area, including military.

Return tax levels to the period of sustained general prosperity, pre-Reagan.

Clean out the legislative trash with Fair Elections Now Act and similar acts.

Incentivize not-for-profit models in every industry to weaken the greed creed/shock doctrine.

Include operation for the public good as the basis for every corporate charter.

Include personal liability for corporate management and controllling shareholders.

Accelerate green homegrown energy transition to remove the war rally calls.

Establish state banks so that earnings go to state coffers and loans go to state citizens.

Some of these are a little extreme or even vague to me. I know I'm not the only one that doesn't know every detail about how the government and our system works that's joining the movement. Instead of making a post with a giant list, why don't we start a thread where we go over one topic at a time and try to come to a general consensus on it. That is what we are after, after all. Real democracy!

Let's start with the first one. Give us some of your thoughts and links to more information. Please try and treat sources like you would for a school assignment . We want more facts based than opinion based.

I know this will be hard in politics on some issues, but just try not to link to opinion pieces and give us YOUR opinion with a link to facts and reasoning for that opinion.

We want real discussion.

No yelling.

And no name calling.
