What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

It’s amazing how they are always telling us how small the increase will be in our property taxes but for some reason our property taxes keep going up and up. I don’t think these politicians know the difference between “fare” and “fair.” Vote “NO” on all of these bond proposals and when these politicians come up for re-election give them a dictionary and not your vote. As fewer and fewer of our federal tax dollars go for education and other human needs while these never-ending dirty wars cost more and more the burden of higher taxes is shifted to the state and local level... let the politicians get their priorities in order. It is costing us trillions of dollars to bomb schools and level a city like Raqqa, Syria with bombs when we should be funding education here in our own country. Maybe instead of sending school children out door-to-door selling candy and coupon books the generals should try selling candy bars to finance their stupid wars? How come we never get to vote on if our country should go to war? All politics ends up being local especially when politicians in Congress have messed up priorities.
