LIST OF GOALS

This is a list of goals to include in the survey for NatGat 2013.

Please add/edit.

It's intended that the categories will roll up and become "the goals", and the details will be targetted milestones under a specific goal. It's envisioned that each will be prioritized as short, medium, and long term objectives.

CATEGORIES of CONCRETE GOALS

SHIFT TAX BURDEN

  • Zero-Sum Budget the Tax Code
  • Flat Tax (no deductions)
  • High Tax on "money-on-money" transactions/income
  • Tax companies that are not "zero-waste" and those who do not adhere to "Extended Producer Responsibility" standards

ELECTORAL & CAMPAIGN REFORM

  • Publically funded elections
  • Free Press / Media for Candidates Free/equal prime time airtime w/major broadcast stations, as a permit condition , for all candidates on the ballot
  • Proportional Representation & Instant Run Off Voting
  • Abolish the electoral college (popular vote for President wins)

MONETARY/BANKING REFORM

  • Dodd-Frank (get it done! been in committee controlled by derivatives industry forever!)
  • End the Fed (put the soverienty control back in the hands of the people)

ESTABLISH A "STRONG COMMONS"

by Restoring Inalienable Rights to Individuals/Environment

  • Amend the constitution to declare the right to basic healthcare, basic income, basic shelter healthy food, clean air/water
  • Amend the constitution to end the corporatocracy and restore inalienable natural rights to individuals and the environment

Not sure where these go:

- Nationalize the Healthcare System
- Give racial minorities first use rights to wide ranging commons that encompass air, open land, housing and water


IDEALS and IDEAS and PRINCPLES

That may not be concrete goals for the "roadmap", but may be treated as principles, or very long term ideals that we can strive for.

  • Global Peace


We can do ACTIONS NEXT. Let's keep this list to GOALS? Refer to President Franklin Delano Roosvelt's 1944 State of the Union Address wherein he advocated a second U.S. Bill of Rights, a U.S. Economic Bill of Rights. Search FDR 1944 State of the Union.
