A living wage. A young family cannot afford to live making what is known as the minimum wage. Free secondary education, whether it be a tech school or a pretigious university. Knowledge should be free. Free access to the internet and a device to get online. Communication is a basic human right. Free electricity and water. Water is the basis for life, clean water is a key to health and well being. Electricity because it is now part of the human condition. Low cost food. Humans have to eat to survive. Not saying this would include junk, but healthy food. Free health care. No explantation needed. Access to affordable housing anywhere someone desires to live. Banks should not be allowed to charge for access to our own money. Banks must exist as security is important. A bank cannot charge more for interest on a loan than what it pays on deposits. CEOs, CFOs, and other corporate executives may not earn more than 50% more than their lowest paid employee. Senators should be appointed by their state governor as originally intended by the authors of the Constitution, thus they represent the state and can be withdrawn should they not have the interest of their constituancy at heart. All lobbying shall be abolished. Most companies have policies in place that prohibit receiving gifts beyond X amount, subject to termination if violated. Brokerage firms should be liable for losses do to negligence or fraud, with jail time served as well. Stocks are a risk, but they should be handled with proper feduciary care. Companies that outsource should be required to pay in to the social security system the entire amount for each employee that is located overseas to compensate the SSA for the loss of payment do the outsource action.these funds will not be available to non USCitizens. Just a start, but I believe a good one. Any thoughts?
