Extremism: You realize that partisan politics and meddling and manipulation by a hostile foreign power has turned Americans against each other like never before, right? That's the first place to stamp out extremism..partisan politics. We have to learn to work together..especially in the face of Russian Aggression.
Environment: Clean technology can be produced by giving the right research grants to the right scientists. If the government can waste funds on the study of the flow rate of ketchup, it can INVEST in tech research for cleaner farms, industry, and transportation. AND ..since charity begins at home, getting kids involved in conserving wildlife and nature is an investment we can afford to make. Even cleaning up a local park now and then is helpful and building an appreciation for the environment in our future.
Economy: Do the top management and CEOs of companies really *need* those huge salaries? C'mon guys, share the wealth a little. Spread some of that money down the ladder. When you don't invest money, people don't buy. It's that simple. When you shut down your US operations to move your manufacturing to China or Mexico so you can keep or increase those already too-fat salaries, unless you are making an absolutely essential product, people won't buy it.
Not unless their unemployment benefits are really good.
