Fixing The Government After the Desperately Needed Revolution

Whether the revolution comes in the form of young, intelligent minds replacing the corrupt government representatives and senators by way of votes, or in the form of something more violent, change in Washington, D.C. is desperately needed. We cannot continue to support a government that only represents the wealthiest of Americans. Consider the tax break given to the rich, at a time when the infrastructure of the United States is falling apart. Does that somehow qualify as representing the majority of Americans?

The Democratic Party is only slightly better than the Republican Party, thanks to the Clintons. In 2011, the Clintons convinced the Democratic Party to accept the 3rd Way as their new political advisors. 3rd Way is essentially run by Republicans.

Currently, bribes are how things get doneĀ in Washington, D.C.

After the revolution we should focus on the following issues, immediately:

Gun control– intelligent regulations to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally disturbed, and to eliminate the sale of military weapons to civilians.

Honesty within politics. Politicians who have been shown to have blatantly lied to the public need be put in jail for… a reasonable amount of time. Bottom line, they must be punished for screwing over the public. These are either our leaders, or our representatives. Either way, they have to be honest with the general public. Consider the cultural damage President Trump has caused, by promoting a philosophy of blatant dishonesty. He and his staff have normalized lies and deceit.

An intelligent tax system that does not favor the rich, and pays for maintenance and improvements of our nation’s infrastructure, plus the basics we are currently used to, and educational funding.

A complete revamp of the voting system, including the elimination of the electoral college, and protection against outside influences.

The DACA Dreamers

A constitutional amendment protecting gays, lesbians, transgenders, and others from sexual discrimination.

A return to Net Neutrality.

A return to previous EPA regulations and standards, at the very least.

Public recognition of global warming.

A free college education to anyone who can maintain an appropriate grade point.

Improving the Healthcare System, rather than trying to destroy it.

While a revolution would certainly disrupt corporate world, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
