    I would vote for more funding and promotion for sustainable product inventions, more funding for education (including higher pay for teachers) and a health care system that is not in bed with insurance companies.

    preserving rights for women (equal pay, choice, no forced medical procedures etc)

    developing more alternative energy sources (wind, solar, etc) so we can get rid of our dependence on foreign oil.

    Passing laws that regulate lobbyists and corporate influence - we can start by repealing the law that says corporations are people (citizens united) and then make laws that state those who serve in congress/senate are to have term limits and cannot be employed as lobbyists for a certain long length of time after their terms are up etc. to help reign in some of this corruption

    I want our government to focus on jobs, the economy and education. We need to get our employment rate across all area under 5%. Our economy needs constant attention with the increasing competition from foreign countries. The education system has to be a major focus because we need to compete with other countries and if our education is not up to par, we will fail.

    Level the playing field and give everyone the right to healthcare (it's a shame so many are against it, and would rather judge who lives or dies!). Next would be creating jobs where we actually produce a product, replacing all these low paying service jobs. Lastly educate our children with knowledge (let our teachers do what they do best, TEACH!), not just answers to the tests. A further comment would be to remove this vote process for these ridiculous negative votes, which I will probably get! lol

    1. first and foremost, bring the troops home from every single other country in the world and stop supporting israel

    2. make the government smaller in size and influence, give the power for decision making back to the people

    3. cut the military budget, invest in renewable sources of energy and non-genetically modified foods & reinstate all the constitutional rights of the americans as well as the human rights of people across the world (shut down secret prisons and rendition practices)
