MILLINOCKET, Maine, June 22, 2013 ― To oversimplify the argument, there are two camps in America today. One thinks that everything is all right and we can overcome any obstacles. The other thinks we’re already in the proverbial hand-basket to hell.
What would you change, amend, abolish or tweak to make life better in the good ole USA?
Below is a list of suggestions for reforming the country. Give us your recommendations in the comments.
A short list of national reforms:
Public service of any kind, from local officials to the President, should be like jury duty … temporary and with minimal compensation.
Professional lobbying would not exist. Only individuals or employees of businesses would be allowed to lobby on their own behalf.
National referendums would be held for any issues involving taxation of all citizens.
Any legislative bill would not have attachments, amendments or riders that are not directly related to the main bill.
People who are not criminals and who have been waiting more than twelve months to become naturalized citizens would be automatically given citizenship. These new citizens would be allowed to consult on the procedures and timetables for other non-citizens to become naturalized.
No Corporation would be allowed to form unless employees immediately become stockholders with full input governing the corporation’s board members.
The nonsensical notion that “corporations are people” would not exist.
How would you do things differently? Let us know ― we’d like to hear it.
