Neuter the CIA. Allow them to only do what they're supposed to do: collect intelligence. Their meddling has been the cause of perpetual war, torture, death, and misery for millions of people, and, especially, terrorist attacks like 9/11. No more meddling in other countries' affairs, no more coups, assassinations, torture, imprisonment etc. Collect intelligence and deliver it to the executive branch and military. Eliminate the NSA and all other spy agencies within the government. One is enough.
Make sure war profiteering is not an option (or incentive) for large corporations. Limit the profit margin on defense technology, weapons, and military supplies to 10%. If they truly care about contributing to American freedom and national security, why shouldn't they do so with the same patriotic selflessness and devotion as our men and women in uniform who serve for a modest wage? National security is a calling and a responsibility, not a business.
Change our foreign policy to stop financially supporting governments who oppress their own people (Saudi Arabia, Israel, Bahrain, etc.); end the failed drug wars (Mexico, Columbia) where our $ goes to corrupt military) End the training of foreign troops at WHISC); stop trade policies which empower international corporations over governments and send jobs overseas.
Assign an Indepedent Special Prosecutor to investigate and report on the former VP Dick Cheney's role in illegal domestic snooping, torture at Guantanamo and via "renditions," and the 9/11 attacks, specifically WTC Building 7's demolition and the mysterious absence of airliner parts in Shankstown, PA, and at the Pentagon.
So long as the United States commits to sending troops to war, all citizens must be eligible to serve at a certain age. The human costs to military and their families of wars that preserve our 'way of life' must be shared by all. Such policy will severely limit the likelihood of U.S. participation in wars.
Force the Veterans Affairs in Los Angeles to use the land that was donated to them for purposes of housing Homeless Disabled Veterans.At one time the sole purpose of the West L.A. campus was to house veterans. That began in the late 19th century, when a couple of prominent Californians donated the land to the federal government specifically to create a home for disabled soldiers.NOT STARBUCKS, BANKS,MEGA MALLS,BASEBALL TEAMS! THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!!
