Just a Few Bones of Contention

The following document is the result of the Salon staff's brainstorming; we're incredibly grateful to Alex Pareene for crafting it into a coherent piece.
~ from A New Declaration of Independence by Alex Pareene ~
I'm not going to cut-and-paste the Declaration here. You can utilize the link above for that. Listed below are the bullet points that Pareene offers as some of the important things needed in this country right now. See if you agree or disagree.
1. Debt relief
2. A substantial jobs program
3. A healthcare public option
4. Reregulate Wall Street
5. End the Global War on Terror and rein in the defense budget
6. Repeal the Patriot Act
7. Tackle climate change
8. Stop locking everyone up for everything and end the drug war
9. Full equality for the queer community
10. Fix the tax system
Hmm. There's not one thing on that list that I have any problem with!

  1. No. the long term goal of any society should be:

    Complete unemployment. (automate)
    No money.
    Clean water.
    Great air.
