7) Dissolve Federal Reserve
8) Eliminate the “revolving door” that occurs between government officials and big business
9) Lobbyists must represent a cause that will benefit humanity and the planet (not their company) in order to see any government officials
10) Move toward local economy and a more agrarian society
11) Greater participatory government and less representative government
a. yearly national elections that decide certain legislation by popular vote

21) Free education K-college
22) Outlaw for-profit universities
23) Reduce spending of tax dollars for military from 45% to 20%

24) Safe food, slow food, organic food legislation
25) Production/consumption legislation that encourages sustainable practices
26) New simplified tax code

i. 5 categories that dictate % on manufacturer, retailer, and consumer

Note: I would really like to see a legitimized online “occupy wall street” election in which people can vote for specific demands. To insure validity, use social security numbers or drivers license numbers. The people voting need to be legitimate U.S. citizens as to avoid fraudulent claims by the other side.
