    my modest proposal for fixin the States

    Its the same old story short term profit for the Big corporations. We have over 1000 military bases around the world. It is all solvable. There is enough wind power potential in North Dakota to provide all of Americas energy needs, One tenth of the land mass of New Mexico if covered with solar electric panels would also provide enough energy to run the country.

    Get out of NATO out of Japan and Korea,flat tax national sales tax,no income tax. national health insurance fund form the taxes all Insurance company's eligible,but they can not pick and choose each must take a percentage of those with pre existing conditions.
    Everyone must join no exceptions. New national rail and transportation system ruining on all that almost free electricity. 250 mile an hour bullet trains from coast to coast,inner city trolleys. Any buildings seized for tax purposes or because of criminal history,must be reviewed as possible temporary homeless housing sites before they are sold on the market.
    Ferry trains where cars electric cars can ride on for high speed transits long distance,then get off.
    Two years Mandatory national service if you have not met minimum education requirements to go to college or trade schools. Free education but require two years public service.Require all lawyers to serve as mediators as well so many hours a month. All potential litigation requires four hours mediation and review before suits can be filed.

    Martial law called in all high crime areas such as ghettos barrios,gun drug sweeps with dogs Any home that is caught twice with illegal drugs or weapons may face demolition. No medical debt can be accrued over 10 percent of ones annual income.

    All felons of non violent offenses serve their time on infrastructure repair crews and neighborhood clean up painting work gangs,or tree planting squads. lastly no war criminals on money. get rid of the penny all together. Put Mark Twain on the five,Abbot and Costello on the fifty.Put Timothy Leary on the 100's in multiple psychedelic holotype ink. With words Forge this!
    Also the words in God we trust should be changed to Does God trust us?
    Hurrah!,Hurrah! for Southern Rights
    Hurrah,Hurragh for the Bonnie Blue Flag
    that Bears a Single Star
