Obama birth certificate is important for other crimes, but not necessary to remove him from office.

Obama, by his own admission, read his books, his father was a Kenyan by birth, died a Kenyan; and was always a Kenyan. Therefore, his birth could at best could only have bestowed US Citizenship on him; that is if his mother had the capacity to do so, because of her age at the time of his birth to make that happen; it would not have mattered where he was born, whether he was born in Hawaii, Canada, or Kenya, in the case ...more »

Encourage development of alternative candidates and third parties

Encourage development of alternative candidates and third parties.

Both parties are now the captives of professional poliitics. We need to find a way to help individuals and third parties to run for office - so as to minimize the impression that the USA is now owned by two corrupt parties.

This would mean state llaws would need to be modified so that average people have a chance to get on the ballot.

Sickos...

I think pedophiles should be considered for the death penalty depending on the severity of their crime. For example; how many children, their ages, and how long they have been committing the crime. Some of these people need to be put down like a wounded animal! They are only harmful to our society.

Public education: personal financing classes

Elected officials running campaigns is not served time

Elected officials running campaigns should not be paid for time in office.

 

Elected politicians running campaigns (for long periods of time) while in office for other positions are not doing the job paid for it, seems appreciate and fair that any person paid by the people should either:

 

-leave office to campaign.

-receive no pay while not on duty.

-serve the time lost serving.

No more self regulation

No government agency should be allowed to regulate itself. The Department of Energy is currently self regulating. They made immense messes everywhere they went. Now that it is time to clean up, they make the rules and get the first whack at it. EPA, the states, OSHA, etc.. are all left to second or third fiddle and are essentially neutered. DOE in particular should not be the primary land manager over natural resources ...more »

Predatory sex offenders (pedophiles and rapists) need to be locked up forever in a large community, never to be released back in

Pedophiles and predator rapists need to be removed forever from society. our children should be able to play freely in their neighborhoods without a parent standing guard. we are looking at "civil rights" in the wrong light. we are so concerned with the civil rights of the criminal we forget the rights of the innocent. our kids deserve freedom from fear in their childhood. if these people are locked in their own ...more »
