I’d like a change in government. The change I’d like is to a government of the people, for the people and by the people, rather than lip service that makes fools of us as the wealthy influence the U.S. Supreme Court, buy elections and direct our path.
I’d like a government where state and national senators and representatives seriously plan 10 to 50 years ahead. I want them to realize increasing debt is a failing measure that burdens everyone, especially those not yet born who will be taxed without representation. I’d like those who gain wealth from wars to pay their fair share for sending people into war; either that or reinstate the draft so the rich would also serve.
I’d like our nation to accept its responsibilities through fair taxes that lower national debt, as when Dwight Eisenhower was president. I’d like to see votes that again make our nation the best-educated in the world, rather than saving money by making educational cuts. I’d like to see us abide by national laws regarding gay marriage and abortion; either that or start a peaceful change of them. I’d like for us to return to being Americans.
