2,3,8 (3 tics, sum 13) The US shall not engage in any action of war against another
country or people. Violence begets violence. To extend the Olive Branch
of Peace, we must be open to listen to other solutions besides our own.
We must close all foreign bases and reduce our military to that which is
needed to protect its citizens and its borders. You cannot have Peace
with a military presence to enforce it.
1,2 (sum 3) As to the fact that the current system of government is broken;
and when something is broken you tear it back down to the basics and
rebuild it in a more efficient manner; the first order of business is to
restore government to within the bounds set forth in the U.S.
Constitution. Any amendments or changes must be approved by majority
vote of the People and those elected to serve.
2,8 (sum 10) CORPORATE LAW: Overturn the citizen's united ruling that 80% of
America is opposed to. Add a constitutional amendment that says
corporations are not people and that corporations are forbidden to lobby
or give money DIRECTLY to political campaigns. And are specifically
limited in the amounts Corporations can give per year to any PAC, or
Candidate for office, and such non-tax deductible donations must all be
publicly disclosed for all to see.
9,1 (sum 10) A USA PARLIAMENT: We support a constitutional amendment to create a
'US Parliament which can and will replace Congress. And the Check on
this US Parliament is again the same U.S. Supreme court, which by this
amendment would be forced to consider the issues put forth by the US
Parliament and thereby forced to make a ruling.

implementing Pro-organic foods & pure water.
9,5 (sum 14) FREE SPEECH: RE-ESTABLISH THE PUBLIC AIRWAVES IN THE U.S. SO THAT

INTERVALS IN DAILY PROGRAMMING DURING CAMPAIGN SEASON. The same should
extend to other media. Re-establish the Fairness doctrine. Remove
restrictions on the free flow of information.
4, 11 (sum 15) DRUG WAR: End the drug war at the federal level, (by restoring the
amendment process and putting forth amendments to LEGALIZE AND OR
CRIMINALIZE DRUGS.) and let states decide to legalize (/ CRIMINALIZE)
marijuana and regulate (ANY) hard drugs, WHICH IS NOT SPECIFICALLY
ADDRESSED IN THE u.s. CONSTITUTION, AND MADE CLEAR BY AMENDMENT.)

and place it under direct control of the Federal Government. And forbid
any and all private interests from being involved in the production of
6,18 (sum 24) MARRIAGE: Equal benefits and rights for Civil Unions in comparison
Items below garnered one or fewer tics and were not approved by a majority vote:
1 _Whereas the continued practice of exercising corporate welfare
nationally, defined as the granting of government subsidies or tax breaks
or advantages to specific corporations or industries, results in an annual
cost of $100 billion of U.S. Government funds, and
Whereas the practice of economically favoring certain corporations or
industries over others represents a direct interference in the process of
free market capitalism which unfairly disadvantages small businesses and
industries that are not subject to governmental favoritism, then
Be it resolved that the U.S. Parliament hereby assumes and defines that
the nation's policy shall be to effect economic policy in the absence of
corporate welfare so as to create fair and equitable opportunity for all
the nation's businesses and citizens, and
Furthermore be it resolved, that the U.S. Parliament declares an immediate
moratorium and elimination of all corporate welfare transactions of the
U.S. Government, regardless of the nature of the corporation or industry
which is the recipient of special subsidies or tax breaks that are not part
of the nation's tax code as is equably imposed upon all businesses, and
Furthermore be it resolved that the U.S. Parliament takes a national
position against all forms of corporate welfare in all aspects of our
And finally, be it resolved that the U.S. Parliament will use all its
resources and regulatory authority within its powers to administer policy
that considers all forms of corporate welfare to immediately be considered
null and void in practice,
And furthermore finally, be it resolved that if the U.S. Parliament were
the real U.S. Government, then it would send notification to every
corporate recipient of special subsidies or tax breaks to provide them with
notice that all such subsidies and tax breaks will be immediately ceased as
is legally permissible.
3) Because politics was never intended to be a career choice; for then
the career becomes foremost over the needs of the people; Term Limits
and Per Diem pay will be set forth for ALL elected officials; From the
Presidency on down. Serving as an elected official never was to replace
or expand your yearly salary; just a token of appreciation without
breaking the backs of the people they serve.
4, VOTING SYSTEMS: Abolish the electoral college. Adopt the
Sainte-Lague parliament seat distribution system, TO ELECT LEADERS BASED
ON POPULAR VOTE WITHOUT INTERFERENCE OF CONTROL BY ANY GROUP.
5, RESTORE GLASS-STEAGAL ACT: Restore Glass Steagal act.
6, PRO-ORGANIC FOODS AND PURE WATER: Incentives for
implementing Pro-organic foods & pure water.
7, CORPORATE LAW: Implement a state or federal law that encourages
corporate bylaws to use ranked choice voting in electing their board of
directors and that requires 50% of the BoD to be workers and 50% to be
shareholders with the CEO holding the additional vote. Prohibit equation
of corporations to people with inherit rights.
10, ECONOMY: Bona fide criminal investigations into white collar
crimes with full prosecution and severe sentencing of those convicted of
wrongdoing. Real investigations for the many white collar criminals that
crashed the US economy.
12, HEALTH CARE: a) A tax based expansion of medicare taxation on all
workers, to the point of offering that national insurance plan for all
the people under the age of 65, but limited to true emergencies and
yearly checkups and otherwise tests which doctors insist are needed.
(meaning free healthcare, but not cushy everything you want once a week
healthcare which some (some) often do, but honest aS everything YOU
ACTUALLY NEED healthcare.)
b) The existing HMO systems can remain as supplementary, faster, better
service care systems, which offer faster more convenient services, as
the result of paying into said HMO systems. Meaning, for profit care can
remain, if it actually provides extra services to its members, while all
rational and reasonable real needed care for the masses would be
provided as by the national system.
c) The payment scale for this national plan would be set to what
medicare is now, and adjusted as is reasonable over time.
d) As part of this national plan, a form of nationalized cheaper testing
for all biological samples (blood tests), is needed to provide the
affordable means to encourage testing by doctors, and doing everything
to motivate doctors to investigate their patients problems to the
utmost, and do to this, requires cheap and efficient and trustworthy
testing. Yet again, still allow private testing to service HMO's and
other systems, who service private clients for profit.
13, CONSTITUTIONAL LAW: Restore the only legal system mentioned in the
U.S. constitution and most state Constitutions, which is the Common Law
legal system. It is the legal system our nation enjoyed since its
beginning up until `1933, when FDR began to use emergency war powers to
do unconstitutional things, AND WE DEMAND TO REPEAL AND REVERSE THE
CHANGING OF THE LEGAL SYSTEM IN 1938, and thereby end the implementation
of statute laws over the people, as under the Common Law the government
is prevented from ever writing laws to control the free people. That is
what the Common Law legal system did, AND WAS FOR, TO PROTECT US FROM
THE GOVERNMENT ABUSE OF THE PEOPLE BY ENDLESS LAW MAKING.
14, PRIVACY: We support upholding the fourth Amendment 4 - Search and
Seizure. Ratified 12/15/1791. The right of the people to be secure in
their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable
searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall
issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and
particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or
things to be seized. Restore constitutional rights of privacy and
freedom from self-incrimination.
15, INTERNATIONAL TRADE: Restore constitutional trade mechanisms,
including tariffs to protect our domestic markets.
16, EDUCATION: Make legal terms every day common language instead of
Latin or other specially designed terms. Require statutes and
regulations to be written in everyday common language.
17, MILITIAS AND ARMS: The right of individuals and of citizen
militias to keep and bear arms, including legally concealed weapons; and
the freedom to manufacture, purchase, trade and train in the use of such
weapons and their constituent parts including the unfettered acquisition
of ammunition. Restore constitutional AMENDMENT BASED limits on
government arms restrictions.
19, INFRASTRUCTURE: A rebuilding of America's infrastructure with a
huge investment in high speed rail, electric cars, windmills, solar
panels and any other energy efficient technology. Major R&D research
into green tech and find those silver bullet breakthroughs that could
create a tech boom much like the evolution of the computer/internet age
that's still evolving. It's long overdue that America invests in itself
and that our government takes a very active role in this. Hiring
preferences need to be given to US citizens first and foremost. Also,
meaning an increase in the public investments made into the universities
of this nation, to encourage leading scientists and high level students
to test and work on as much cutting edge research as is possible at the
university level with full government support and resources to expedite
20, CONGRESSIONAL LEGISLATION: CONGRESS PASS SPECIFIC AND EFFECTIVE
LAWS LIMITING THE INFLUENCE OF LOBBYISTS AND ELIMINATING THE PRACTICE OF
LOBBYISTS WRITING LEGISLATION THAT ENDS UP ON THE FLOOR OF CONGRESS. And
empower the Attorney General to seek punishment for Representatives who
do not write their own bills. All Congressional bills must be written by
members of Congress, and must be read in entirety by members of Congress
prior to voting.
