Common Sense Progressive Movement
This platform is all common sense. Input to improve and expand them is most welcome. Any input must apply to everyone on the planet, not be region specific, and have considerable social significance. And please do not tell us that these things can NOT be done. You would be lying. They can!
ONE PERSON/ONE VOTE – people should control government via a universal voting system – ensures a true continuous democracy – totally doable today
TOTAL RELIGIOUS FREEDOM but complete separation of church and state
ANTI-WAR – War never makes sense – “defense” budgets need to be slashed. A 50% reduction pays for all infrastructure repairs and greatly reduces unemployment
BAN ALL NUCLEAR WEAPONS and ban all WMD’s now! This should not even need an explanation. This is death on a massive scale – ban them now
STRICTER GUN LAWS – mandatory classes, licensing, and registration. Guns are exclusively created to maim and kill. Educate people on their proper use and disposal
HEALTH CARE – universal health care for all – No exceptions – No one has the right to say who will suffer and/or die – and who will not.
PRO-CHOICE – Believing in the integrity of adults, of both genders, and their ability to make responsible choices for themselves.
RIGHT TO DIE – will be based on age and/or infirmities
RAISE PAY & FULLY TRAIN VITAL PERSONNEL e.g. teachers, police, fire, etc. Our most important support groups are the least paid and even lesser equipped. Higher pay, better training, fully equipped.
CORPORATE TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY – close all tax loopholes – limit performance bonuses – annual audits for major corporations
FAIR GRADED TAXES FOR CORPORATE RICH – 50% tax rate at 10 million/ 80% tax at $100 million for the rich. A Corporate tax starts at 25% upward and graded on profitability, reinvestment, and employee benefits
GLOBAL WARMING – proven beyond doubt – immediate remedial actions MUST be taken NOW, if it is not too late already.
PRO ALTERNATE ENERGY i.e. solar & wind – stop destroying the earth with high priced polluting oil and switch to free renewable clean energy – another easy choice
PRO-CONSERVATION and the preservation of public lands– this also should not need an explanation and goes in tandem with our pro-renewable energy policy
AUTONOMOUS INTERNET – ONLY the people should regulate and control the internet
EQUALITY FOR EVERYONE – No exceptions. This is common sense in its most simplistic form yet classes and castes exist even today.
FOOD– No one should ever have to go hungry. We have enough food now to feed everyone. Malnutrition is inhumane and should become obsolete.
HOUSING – No one should ever be without shelter. Once again – simple common sense and we do have the resources.
EDUCATION – as much as each individual wants and/or needs – education means progress and immeasurable future returns. Pro science and technology.
