These are just overviews on important topics. More detailed viewpoints will be forthcoming.

That includes Global Warming and the depletion of Fossil Fuels. We need to focus on renewables in order to secure our future.

The practical elimination of Art and Music from core curriculum around the country only depletes the culture of our great nation. It’s time for these items to re-take their place of importance in schooling.

Not only that, but it is antiquated and needs replacing, not just repairing.

Cutting tariffs and trade penalties is the way forward if we intend to grow our economy. Turning inward only leads to stagnation.

And not the debacle that we have in place now. We need a system that is simple, that works, and that is covered entirely by our taxes. Out of pocket costs for care – preventative or otherwise – need to become a thing of the past if we are to move into the future.

We’re no longer Number 1 when it comes to education – and we haven’t been for a long time. Making college available at no cost for our citizens will eliminate crippling debt heaped upon those just entering the workforce, AND allow us to regain our position at the top.

Not just probes. Humans will be going back into space in a way that we really haven’t since the Apollo program. We’re talking Humans on Mars, long-term. Staying confined to the Earth is not a future.

The entire US Tax System is so broken that it needs to be scrapped and started over. We need to eliminate the loopholes that allow the rich to “skate by” without paying their fair share, and re-structure it so that the poor are not pushed farther into poverty by the system.

Government needs to stop legislating the reproductive organs of people. Like, now.

I don’t care what you believe in. But we’re not going to legislate others based on your beliefs.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
