Energy Policy - massive government investment in research and infrastructure for renewable energy; zero subsidies for oil companies; a gradual imposition of a carbon tax, the proceeds of which will be used to fund carbon reduction programs; end to corn ethanol subsidies; aggressive investments in energy efficiency programs and education; sharply increased fuel economy standards for cars and trucks, to phase in over the next decade; investment in public transportation systems; ratification of an international agreement that calls for dramatic reduction in CO2 emissions globally by 2050.
Trade Policy - more free trade! Completion of the Doha round of talks for the WTO, with the industrialized economies giving up their ridiculous farm subsidies.
Economic Policy - a balancing of the federal budget. If we can't pay for it, we don't buy it. A clear plan for paying down U.S. debt. Serious tackling and solutions for economic time bombs such as Medicare and Social Security. Dramatic simplification of the U.S. tax code (yeah, that's gonna happen...). For crying out loud - open the border to skilled workers from abroad so that companies are not forced to open offices overseas or outsource. Keep the jobs in the U.S.! Encourage international students to attend U.S. universities and remain in this country after their studies are complete.
Foreign Policy - end to Iraq war; aggressive pursuit of Al Quaeda terrorists especially in Afghanistan & Pakistan; Cessation of Iran's nuclear program, through the use of force if necessary; improved relations with Russia and China; cessation of NATO expansion; normalization of relations with Cuba; serious push for Middle East peace, talks with Syria, and serious action against Hezbollah.
Health Care - health care is a basic human right. No person should have to pay to stay alive. Government is the only force that can ensure that everyone is covered. Take a bold step!
I have many other items on my wish list, but if 40% of the ones I listed above are addressed (with energy policy at the very top of the list), I think we will be on the right track as a society.
May the fates smile upon us all tomorrow, and may the Bush era fade deep into the history books.
