I suspect most of these measures would be absolutely catastrophic to the global economy.

Actual real penalties for corporate crimes would be good - no-one is ever held accountable whether it's fraud or manslaughter.

If you get hurt, you expect the Dr to treat you out of the goodness of his/her heart? Despite the 20 years of school, they don't deserve to get paid for their studies and hard work?

Don't need to repeal the second amendment - just stop prople mis-quoting or amending it to suit themselves.

R22: and the constitutional amendment is going to come from who? People in Congress who got elected with corporate and PAC money?
No. The first step and the only one that the electorate has the power to do is to elect people who run with no corporate and PAC money.
Where are they?

[quote] Require hetero couples to pass exam on life skills, parenting skills, and home financial skills before obtaining a license to have a child.
I agree with some of your other posts, but not this one. My parents would never have passed and a lot of my most interesting and successful friends wouldn't be here, so no.

Thank you for exposing how banal and fucked up giving the government control of wages really is!
[quote]Make all per hour income equal. Period. Let's say we all make $1 per hour, plus costs. Everyone is taxed at $10/week. You can either pay in money or in work for the government (gov't chooses job, you might be doing dirty work even if you were previously not of the dirty hands set)
So, someone who spends 10 years crafting a boat should be paid the same as someone who spends 10 seconds wrapping a Big Mac?

The US is primarily a corporatist economy now, and only secondarily capitalist. The essence of capitalism is that each person is able to own the means of their own production (i.e. own your own farmland, start your own business), which is generally not the case in the US.

I would confiscate the Walton family fortune,let them keep a pro-rate share of $100,000,000. Take the billions and use it to get our factories restarted, making all the stuff that gets sold in Walmart, Target etc. I would require them to raise prices by 10% to 15% and use the extra cash to pay their employees a living wage. I would also have a cut off date after which there will be no new public benefits granted, unless someone is in need due to death,illness, job loss or abandonment. If ya can't feed em don;t breed emand I would make it a crime tohave a child that you are unable to support (as opposed to losiing the ability to support, but you had the child in good faith). I would abolish all prison scentences over two years, maybe, in extreme cases five years. After that, if someone commits a crime that is so heinous, and that includes non-violent crimes, that justifies a longer scentence---execute them.
