15. public financing of elections
something to reign in the power of corporations and lobbyists, especially with defense spending.

Communities planned to be more pedestrian friendly and less spread out. The thinking should be "how can we live without cars" at least to get to work/school.

Affordable housing probably in the form of apartments that integrate nicely with public transportation and have parks and libraries nearby.

Fund the arts and sciences goddamnit.

Improve public education and career training programs.
