Reporter, if you want rural philosophy, go to a feed store, auction, or farming related internet forum, and you'll get regurgitated Fox News and Limbaugh spew, mostly, due to the limited availability of high-speed internet in WV. A WV connection does not automatically mean a rural orientation. Maybe you can see some woods and fields from downtown, but that doesn't make us all rural.

1. Reverse the Citizens United decision, pass a constitutional amendment for public financing of elections, whatever it takes to get economic interests out of elections so that lawmakers can respond to real people and needs with no interference from corporations. Take the glamor out of being a politician. Make them live on the median income of the people in their district while in office, and subject to the same laws, etc.
2. Some kind of flat tax or similar with few exemptions (first $100,000 tax free, say) and no loopholes such as tax shelters, applying to any person, business, or income. And a transaction tax and other regulations for financial markets, to reduce manipulation by huge banks who can afford fast computers and specialists to outgame average investors.
3. Nationalize the energy industry and start a transition to renewable sources (including oil from algae), which have been supressed by various means. We need everything in the mix for now. Then renewables will be in place when fossil fuels have to be phased out or deplete on their own. We will have less need to go to war over oil, for example.
4. Promote greater income equality and security through living wages, health care (including family planning and birth control, retirement plans, equality for women, etc. so that people will not spend their lives in worry and frustration, and having more children as their private retirement plan. It will be necessary to stabilize Earth's population to ease the strain on limited resources, and this is better than wars, famine, and disease.
5. Encourage more localized production of food and goods to reduce transport requirements, and make the national economy less vulnerable to disturbances such as hikes in gas prices every time some foreign event gives financial traders the hiccups.
6. Build new, more efficient infrastructure: smart electric grid, light rail, electric buses, energy-efficient everything. A new building code to require energy-efficiency in new construction and rerofits. This will keep the construction industry booming for decades. High-speed internet for all, and anyone who can telecommute instead of driving to an office will do so.
7. Decriminalize marijuana and hemp. This would free a significant part of the prison population to lead productive lives again, reduce the use of the remaining illegal drugs, and provide a fabulous new crop for farmers and material for industry. Better yet, legalize all drugs and put the law enforcement money into treatment for those who can't handle it, as has been done in Portugal since 2001.
8. Trim down the budget for the military industrial complex, and other such waste. Eliminate corporate welfare unless it is shown to be in the public interest, and then find other ways to serve the public interest instead if possible. Fund an independent inspection and auditing agency to ferret out waste and fraud, from no-bid contracts for cronies to public welfare cheats. This might be a good use for all the ex-IRS agents.
9. A new emphasis on education, particularly science and technical education (even if it means paying for competent teachers), support of space and ocean exploration and eventually industry and colonies. This will also have returns to the economy bigger than the investment.
10. Increased protection and respect for the environment. You can only abuse it so far before it bites back. It's what we all depend on for everything, and we can't get a spare when this one is worn out. The economy will need to be more steady-state than growth oriented. This may call for new systems of doing things.

You sound like a five year old. Why would he be AGAINST small and medium sized business? Most Dems have jobs with for-profit businesses. Why would he want to cause them to lose their jobs. You're statements are overly simplistic and juvenile.

Bacon.....Oh yeah, this tax law is such a good thing. They are still adverstise for a firm law. Obama cried for 30 million who did not coverage and you have nowhere near that many signed up. You have had 4.5 million kicked off their healthcare along with the lie of being able to keep your doctor and coverage. Such a great law the just pass it and we will find out later what is in it. Plus change it 27 times without congressional approval. So you like keeping the individual mandates in while you help everyone else. But this was suppose to help all Americans and you chose to help everyone but the people. A screwed up website and socialized medicine. Good job sheeple
Typical Republican. Say it's a failure the day after it becomes law and say it needs to be scrapped. Why would you complain about changes being made when you didn't like the law in the first place? I would think changing it would be seen as good to someone who doesn't like it.

Obamacare will go down in history as one of the greatest presidential accomplishments since the New Deal, Medicaid, Medicare, etc. Not today, but when the bugs are ironed out. And, it will be know as Obamacare, making him a praised and influential president throughout history. And, all Repubs will be know for, as usual, is being against something that improved lives (see the above programs).

Hey George. You never did answer my question about why you are a Democrat and what is it that Dems stand for that makes you identify yourself as one and what is it Repubs stand for that makes you not want to identify yourself as one of them?
