Campaign: Public-Private Partnerships

Mixed Martial Arts Rugby

When in Rome do as the Romans did... In this case the idea would be to create a public-private partnership that promoted the sport of Mixed Martial Arts Rugby and split the profits evenly, the private side using its profits for whatever it wanted to and the public side using its profits to pay down the debt. The sport itself would combine the basic rules of rugby with the more primitive rules of mixed martial ...more »

health care

Have health insurance companies follow the same rules walmart does. If walmart refuses to sell you something you can sue them, if walmart gives someone 20% off the price and not you, you can sue them, so why do we let the health insurance companies do this? I say do not let the health insurance companies turn people away, instead sell them insurance, also if the health insurance plan is the same the price should be the ...more »

Instead of Taxing Cow-Farts to Bully Farmers into Controling Methane-Output ...

Have each farmer Raise the cows in a greenhouse (with a vent and air container at the top to filter and contain the methane)! Then deliver the methane to the appropriate government office in exchange for a refund on the cows bought who made that gas!

 

The 'government office' can then either appropriately destroy that gass or can modify it into a more-usable form.

Campaign: Making Government Operations More Open

Common Sense Tax Law/Rate

I propose that all of our tax laws and tax codes be scraped and replaced with a simple flat tax system. In this system it would not matter how you earned your money or from what source, you would be taxed at the same flat percentage for every single dollar of income. No longer would we need loopholes, tax accountants, tax lawyers, or nearly as many IRS agents as we now have. You make a Dollar, you pay a flat percentage ...more »

Legalize marijuana for agriculture, taxation, medical, bio fuel, AND TOURISM.

Legalize marijuana for agriculture, taxation, medical, bio fuel, AND TOURISM. Henry Ford built his first car using plastic made from industrial hemp. It was also powered by hemp diesel. The oil industry does not want this. Industrial and medical hemp would generate billions of dollars in tax money. Bio diesel is not my favorite fuel, but it can be "made in America". Location, location, location, tourism in America ...more »

National tax transparency website needed

Have you ever wondered what your true federal tax bill is? We all know our income tax bill, but what about all of the other federal taxes assessed separately for various activities, services or products? The Tax Foundation has a slew of data on various federal taxes here: http://taxfoundation.org/taxdata/ We already have a national spending website, and that's nothing to sneeze at, but shouldn't the other half of ...more »

DOD Weapons System Procurement and Cost Assessment

Speaking from experience as a former U.S.A.F. Civil Servant performing duties as a WG-9 Jet Engine Technician, then as a GS 5-10 Material Inventory Control Specialist, and as a Division Leader of the U.S.A.F. QP 4 Program - that the current methods of defining related costs of maintaning Weapon Systems is inaccurate and outdated. Example: The recycling of used parts into the rebuilding process includes the purchase price ...more »

Macro/Micro System Comparison Review

When discussing new methods on increasing "Government Transparency" it will be more beneficial to flowchart the existing operations under consideration from both the Macro and Micro point of view. This comparison technique opens the door to items of interest and importance which - if reviewed by only one of the two aspects - may be overlooked. Secondly - it demonstrates where there may be a "Troubled Intersection" that ...more »

Should also include the estimated jobs and lives lost as a result of the poor being unable to heat their homes and the rationing of healthcare, etc;...in addition ...more »
