76. ME!!!
+ Wars = DONE. Wasteful pieces of Bewsh-shit.

+ Pentasewer = defunded and defanged substantially. Troops - employed to rebuild infrastructure. We're no longer the world's oil cops.

+ Three Words = Universal Motherfucking Health CARE.

+ Three More Words = Mandatory Paid Maternity Leave.

+ Yet Another Three Words = MANDATORY PAID VACATION. It's utter stupidity that the U.S. has no mandated vacation, but we're the world's largest consumer of anti-depressants.

+ Serious work will begin on universal college education also. The debt-for-diploma bullshittery HAS to stop.

+ Cheney/Rove/Rice/Ashcroft = subpoena'd. Cheney gives any of this "who do you think YOU'RE talking to" guff, the ICU's getting pulled on that fuck. Call it severance pay for ruining the country.

+ "Free Trade" agreements = as good as DEAD, or at the very least, repealed until something better and non-zero-sum can be built.

+ Lobbyists, especially war, pharm, tobacco and finance lobbyists = BANISHED.

+ Guaranteed minimum income. Maximum wage.

+ >$500,000/yr = 45% TMTR, $500,000/yr - 250,000/yr = 40% TMTR, 249k - 125k = 36% TMTR. 124k - 85k = 30%TMTR (that's right . .. LOWER). 84k - 50k = 25%. 49k - 25k = 15%. <24k - 10%. Time to institute some progressive taxation for once.

+ 0.05 cent tax on all trade transactions.

+ Tax credits for energy saving.

+ Excess money coming in - New WPA! Infrastructure, bridges, roads, airports, transporation updates, education, schools, alternative energy building, small business funding, etc.

+ Wall Street will no longer hold the White House or the American people hostage. BANK on it. The next to be investigated and watched heavily will be the SEC. Bernie Maddoff and the Collapse-o-rama didn't just HAPPEN.

+ White supremacist groups = investigated.

+ Drugs/prostitution = legalized, regulated, taxed.


+ Marriage is for ALL consenting adults of legal age.

+ More installation art, Legos, music, retro video game museums, spontaneous acts of kindness, travel, sex and robot labs.

+ I'll of course be paraded around in a bulletproof tank-like HughMobile and refuse to fly, because when you piss off corporations and the wealthy that run them, they tend to get itchy trigger fingers and have plants do a little something-something to certain planes.


Seriously, it had to be Obama. Five Guys has a bigger menu than what we have. It was either that or bury the country in a heap of right-wing liquid manure.
