Overhaul the Freedom of Information Act and codify it in a Constitutional Amendment to prevent administrations from excessively blocking and/or impeding the provision of requested information and/or excessively classifying and/or redacting released documents. Specify harsh penalties and other legal remedies. Abuses have simply become downright fascistic. Time is long overdue for sunlight.
Revamp our immigration policies to allow a larger visa quota, stop deportations until fair hearings can be held, open a pathway to legal citizenship for the undocumented who do not have a criminal record, pass the DREAM Act, allow parents of DACA students to apply for stay of deportation while President Obama's executive order is in effect.
Ban all trafficking in personal data (including geolocation) with a few limited exceptions (e.g. for credit rating agencies). Limited amounts/types of data held by companies/organizations with which one is directly dealing should be allowed, but sharing that data with other businesses owned by the same holding company should be forbidden. Accidental violations should have modest penalties; systematic or egregious violations should have very nasty penalties.
The (NRA is the source of them, I believe) black human form shooting targets must NO LONGER be used for police or military training. The not-so-subtle but subliminal message in those is horrifying. They SHOULD be illegal in any venue, but I fear it'll be difficult enough to start eliminating them from governmental agency use.
Repeal the Hyde Amendment once and for all.We need to promote abortion worldwide and in the US.Also allow any abutter of a women's health clinic to be a de facto friend of the clinic by establishing a 500 foot buffer around THEIR business from the anti choice bombers and murderers as a matter of public safety.
Place a High Tax on Guns and Ammunition. Offer Licensing courses to train people in the use of firearms, consequences of using a firearm (taking a life) and firearms care. Include Range time and target practice in the Free courses. Require bi-annual refresher courses to maintain certification. All who pass the courses are certified and have a card that eliminates or greatly reduces the tax.
Transgender men and women face more violence than the average person, by a large margin. We also commit suicide far more often than statistics for any other demographic. Employment opportunities are given to others simply because the fear of what people can't understand rules them, we cannot fight what's in another's mind. Housing is another area in which we as trans Americans are shut out of more often than not. If we are not recognized, and granted equal protection under the law, we're lost.
If police are considered "Professionals",REQUIRE them to carry (and pay for themselves!) a form of Liability Insurance much like a Doctor. If they discharge their weapon or assault an unthreatening person and cause harm or death from an unprovoked incident such as we've seen recently. Cities and counties get sued by the victim/families and the TAXPAYER has to account for the potentially illegal actions of police. The police officer might think twice if INSURANCE may have to pay and rates rise.
In every trial where the person accused has minor children, appoint a child advocate to help in sentencing. Parents who won't be hurting their children belong at home (perhaps with a bracelet on their leg) with their children. When parents go to jail/prison, the children do time right along with them.
