3. Release all non-violent inmates:
Inmates that have been convicted of stealing will have to recompense their victims threefold, once that is done all records will be expunged if it is a first time conviction. If it is a second conviction but is non-violent put into a medium security prison where they will have to work off their sentence up to 5 fold.
4. Execute 1st Degree Murder with DNA evidence:
Anyone convicted of 1stDegree Murder with DNA evidence deliberated on by a jury of your peers will be executed within 2 weeks of conviction including child rapists. Child Molesters will get life in prison without parole (molesters that have not committed rape).

Require firearm training for every man, woman and child (similar to Switzerland) and require all citizens to keep and bear arms.

Income tax is unconstitutional anyway. Instead tax only for services rendered, like use of roads and bridges and sales tax.

Repeal all benefits that Congress currently have and have a nationwide vote to review and renew them.
9. Stop Corporations from Buying Influence:
All monies from Corporations given to a political person for reasons of influence to be illegal, as well as using your own wealth to run for office or support those in office, only money gathered from the public can be used to promote someone politically and that amount to be capped individually so that the wealthy cannot buy a candidate.

Install verifiable machines that can be counted individually when needed and that are overseen by an elected local body that must be replaced every two years.
12. Overhaul Health Care:
Institute a pay as you go health service including Clinics that are subsidized by the tax payers for preventative measures. Some of the money saved from prisons and gained from drug sales could fund this.

Stop giving money to other countries. If individuals want to support a country then they can do so but no money is to leave the U.S. that is tax money.
14. Stop all wars, cut the funding:
Use the money saved from the wars to propel a government program that would give grants to individuals that have good ideas for small businesses. Local citizen groups will be convened to judge whether someone's idea would qualify (similar to the small business administrations)
