In the beginning there was a constitution.
From the constitution came the thought that it had created a free enterprise system.

honest banking system

one that can be trusted with consumers money - a regulated utility-grade platform for electronic transactions, and one that protects the account holder from bank fraud such as overdraft fees, and other dishonest behavior by those facilitating electronic purchases. otherwise we should all simply remove our money from these institutions and use CASH.

Internal Revenue Service

Modernize the IRS to allow individuals who have grievances about how an IRS case is handled to make the process less paper-intensive and more due-process oriented. The overwhelming perception that the current system is a virtually "closed process" where extagent circumstances cannot be discussed prior to full compliance, a formal hearing delays handling enormously and case resolutions are inflexible.

Consumption tax

do away with the IRS and filing every year, and just institute a flat consumption tax. Rich people who buy more will pay more taxes, poorer people who don't spend as much will pay less tax. This will also encourage personal savings, (the only way to get a tax break) something the American population has to little of.

Can providing for the general welfare be more open?

Citizens should be directly involved in recommending open ways that the government might provide for the general Welfare of the United States because of the overlap between collaboration and funding. If we are prevented from making such recommendations, then how can open resources which are shown to improve the ability of citizens to accurately and effectively instruct their access to government information and services... more »

2/24/2010
I strongly suggest that all business travel and entertainment expenses should be taxed. This is for all businesses in the United States of America. If your company sends you to China, or any other place in the world.

Stop discriminating against Americans abroad

America has a very large international balance of payments deficit. One of the best ways to encourage exports by American businesses, and encourage imports by those living abroad, is to end the practice of imposing income taxes on individuals’ worldwide income. Section 911 of the US Tax Code penalizes Americans abroad vis-Ă -vis their foreign counterparts by raising the cost of employment and living. Americans abroad frequently... more »

Innovate Banking / Loaning / Bonding

We will save trillions of tax payer dollars if we the people, the common wealth and the issuance of our currency were done by government and for the people. Look into bonds, greenbacks, and all possible alternatives to get the economy functioning. In order for a free market to function we need the 6 pillars in place. So far, all have been destroyed by Wall Street and the ever present menace of conglomeration which crushes... more »

Transmodal concentric timezoning

Please don't think me pretentious however, the creative dynamics behind this theorum of collective economic and/or daily commercial commuting is far to elaborate to merely convey in such short forum. I can assure you that I have studied, contemplated, and performed near return analysis on these intertwined formuli if you will. If given the proper resources and time (approx) 12-15 (due to seasonal variables in travel modes)... more »

Transparency in spending

Implement a searchable database of every expenditure of federal money.

Allow full search of every check written by the Treasury, searchable by date, department, district, and authorizing law.

Obviously some expenditures would need to be aggregated for security or privacy reasons, but this very concept has already been implemented by banks and credit card companies for personal accounts.

The same level of visibility... more »
