What Gives Me Hope Another sunrise...
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Re-establish our democratic republic. Abolish corporate greed. Raise the minimum wage to $15.33 an hour. Develop renewable energy, so to use less fossil fuels. Revert to Single Payer healthcare. Reestablish Roe vs Wade and equal pay for women in the workplace. Establish tighter background checks, testing and licensing before the purchase of guns. Rebuild our infrastructure. Tax the 1%. Close all tax loopholes. Overhaul our public schools. Develop free higher education for those who want it. Ban privatization of prisons. Repeal the law that the Post Office must pay employee benefits 75 years into the future and ban the potential privatization of America's oldest institution. Develop incentives to promote business in America and not over seas. Promote 'Made in America' marketing. Begin investigations on the Bush administration and Darrell Issa. Outlaw Nestle's near monopoly on America's water. Ban Monsanto. Promote organic produce and the humane treatment of farm animals, chickens and farmed sea food. Then take a well deserved vacation.
