guns should not be legal.

George / January 2, 2011 2:53 PM

Our stupid drug laws.

Dennis Fritz / January 2, 2011 10:44 PM

We ought to get rid of the death penalty. Also, we might want to take a hard look at ending tax-exempt status for religious institutions.

All politicians should have the same retirement and health benefits as the average private sector employee. And they should have to send their kids to public schools.

The greatest cancer on American society are lobbyists. Get rid of all of them.

Keep guns and abortion legal, decriminalize drugs and prostitution.

Public transit should be free for everyone.

Ramsin / January 3, 2011 1:31 PM

I think it starts with decriminalization of drugs.

zero tolerance. three-strikes-you're-out laws. the whole reagan mindset. sentencing reform needs to be much more prominent in our national dialogue than it will ever be.

Libby / January 3, 2011 2:59 PM

Decriminalize prostitution. So much money is wasted punishing consensual sex acts between adults.

Dubi kaufmann / January 4, 2011 12:56 AM

The English system should be thrown away and the metric system used instead.

Spook / January 4, 2011 10:21 AM

Mainstream religion
American optimism
Conservative values related to sex-and every thing else.
