What should our priorities be, going forward?

Eliminate corruption in government?

Eliminate dark money politics?

Improve voter education?

Improve education, period?

Dismantle large media conglomerates?

Make taxing structure more progressive?

Improve civil rights enforcement?

Implement reasonable gun ownership laws?

I'm just riffing here. Feel free to add totally orthogonal options.

2. National vote by mail. Increased voter participation will eventually allow us to solve all problems.

Attach the bill/amendment/provision to must pass legislation so that it is signed into law.

3. Put all Rs in a for profit prison

and have the cost of their internment be paid for by their estates.

Just one for profit prison... just for them... all others need to go.

11. But protecting the environment and, as a subset to that

providing subsidies to small, sustainable farms instead of big agri is so boooorrrrinnng! At least it is when I can picture the Rs receiving monthly letters from their financial advisors telling them just how much money they have spent keeping themselves in prison.

4. Voting rights nationwide and election security

automatic voter registration, mail-in option ballot. Every single voter must receive a receipt that the vote was counted. In Cali I get the receipt and can check online that my ballot was accepted. If it was not I would get a notification and the reason why not.

Nothing else is nearly as important. Voting accessibility is elections integrity is the basis of democracy.

9. Voting. Everything - Gerrymandering, disenfranchisement, integrity, registration, access, ease...

No good policy survives if you let those bastards regain the majority/White House and repeal/rescind it.

The best way to make Democratic/progressive gains and retain them is to have more voters vote and have their votes count fairly.
