Plenty of bad things these days. I saw the start of a lot of them. Here's what I know. We'll talk about what we can do.
A Real Health Cae System for Vermont Vermont needs a single-payer, universal Health Care system financed by an income tax on all income generated in Vemont.
Biomass Fuel We need a biomass fuel economy in Vermont, with hemp grown for vegetable diesel fuel and waste vegetation fermented for ethanol. Biomass fuel is a triple win for Vermont. It will cut the pollution of petroleum products, provide the basis for many local businesses, and cut the cost of oil and gasoline in half.
Education I want to see Vemont schools today as good as were the one-room schools of sixty years ago.
Electoral reform We need IRV for instate voting and proportional allocation in the Electoral College. IRV offers Vermonters the best way to indicate their full preferences and at the same time to keep elections within the electoral process.
Taxes Taxes shouldn't be "high" or "low", but what is required to pay for what we need, and should be on real wealth.
I want to offer my salute to one of the great women of this world-- Wangari Maathai who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize of 2004. If you click on the link, you can find the full story of her wonderful achievments in Kenya.
