We need a "check list," to communicate to our politicians (our policy makers), that these are issues whereby we must reform and find a way to implement meaningful and effective policies.  

  1. Implement vote by mail in every state, or a federal level vote by mail.  
  2. Gerrymandering needs to be illegal.
  3. No more voter suppression!
  4. Fix our education systems (more State/Federal sponsored Montessori schools!).  
  5. Get rid of the electoral college system.
  6. No privatized prisons - prison should not be for profit.
  7. Prison reform (education).
  8. Get rid of lobbying and replace it with Democracy dollars.
  9. Do not sell arms to other countries. Period. We have no business arming other countries.
  10. Guns, and more guns.  We need big reforms if we're going to have guns in this culture, i.e., finger print safety features, or a simple code.  Force insurance policies, just like driving: you own a gun, you better have damn good insurance...just in case.  There is so much we can do to make people accountable and to reduce gun access.
  11. Healthcare for all - single payer system.  Take the profit out of healthcare.
  12. Smart long-term economics (more on this later).
  13. Last, but certainly not least, we should not be selling arms to the Saudis.  What they've done to Yemen is horrific.  Trump wants to label mainstream media as evil, well he's in bed with what is truly evil.  Trump, on a personal level, is doing business with the Saudis, along with his son-in-law Jared Kushner.
