Ending Government Overreach/Abusive Policing/Mental Health damages

Requiring all government employees to utilize a digital signature when accessing a citizen’s personal information and for the citizen to be notified at the time it is accessed, and for the employee to state the purpose for accessing the file.

Creating a legal mechanism to dispute health and social service decisions that can be brought forth immediately in court when there is a dispute surrounding diagnosis or doctor/social service/police behavior.

Creating a neutral system for chain of possession in investigations to prevent planting of information or police damaging evidence, whereby evidence can not be accessed without representatives of both parties.

Restoring faith in the banking system by ensuring that governments can not access bank accounts without a warrant, nor freeze them without leaving at least a livable amount of money (ie not jeopardizing the safety of individuals and families).

Requiring unions to split into two bodies to resolve the conflict of interest between the public and the workers: one as a professional guild or regulating body to protect the public’s interests, and the other as a union to protect the interest of the workers, and preventing them from taking one political side.

 

Housing

To create a system whereby priority is given to single ownership, rather than corporate ownership of homes.

To end the mortgage discrimination of the disabled and poor so that they can purchase a home and attain financial stability as opposed to being at the mercy of a predatory rental or government housing system. (Mortgages are significantly less than rent, and often go down whereas rent always goes up).

To find options for seniors to purchase apartments that they have paid long term rent in.

To end the policy of applying disability money to long-term hospital stays in which the disabled person looses his/her home thus continuing the cycle of homelessness.

Taxes

To end the tax system written by wealthy liberals to support wealthy liberals and replace it with a more representative system with the goal of developing upwards mobility and financial stability.

To re-evaluate taxes on a gradient system so that people are able to attain a stable living situation (ie lower taxes for those purchasing their primary hose or helping a child buy his/her home – to encourage stability in the economy).

To end taxes on more than 40 hours of hourly labour (if your company can’t require you to work more than 40 hours per week, why should the government be allowed to tax you on it)?

To create larger sustained tax cuts for those whose professions required longer training to give them the time to catch up.

Students/Family Law

To address the issue of white collar abandonment of university aged children who look wealthy on paper but have parents that do not assist them, or who live with financial abuse and whose parents often still claim them on income taxes.

To reduce the shame of family abuse, and help people attain a state of truth in their lives more quickly.

To examine the possibility of stepped education allowing students to engage in practicums at earlier stages in their education and allowing them to switch between studies and work experience (especially useful in fields such as medicine). This also helps them pay for their education quicker.

Energy Security

To set cost goals for utilities and plans for stabilizing prices against infrastructure development and updates.

To craft a plan for energy security on each continent and encourage others to do the same.
