What you can do to help do good for all today.
You can help improve things help the needy help themselves and save lives.
Make the Golden Rule the code of conduct for all, with the expectation that one must not bring harm to another by one's actions or inaction. Hold people responsible for their actions and inactions.
Find out who your national and state Senators and representatives are and get their email addresses and phone numbers. Put that down in writing in a list.
Call or email them and ask them to do the following: (Just do a couple at a time in each email or call.)
Create jobs. This can be done by creating public service jobs to build low income affordable apartments for the homeless, veterans, senior citizens. Installing solar panels on them and on all senior and public housing. Improve the roads. Create subways which is the safest, weather proof, safest mass transit system. Use prisoner labor. We have to pay over $35,000 a year to give criminals free housing, medical care, food, legal services, and recreation. You and I are sentenced to a life time of work why should they get off without doing public service work. And creating subways keeps them busy and safely out of our way. We need mass transit. And Smart is inadequate pays its executives like Mr Ford $200,000 a year which is a waste of our taxpayer money.
Replace welfare with workfare. Insist on workfare which requires recipients to work and receive training so they earn their way off of it.
Stop hunger, homelessness, illness by making sure work fare can provide food, shelter and medical care for the needy.
Provide jobs training for all who lack a vocation. And provide public service placement or an internship for a a few months then require they pay back by working in these fields in Michigan. We then get the unemployed working supporting themselves and their families and paying taxes.
Everyone must be required to support themselves after childhood and before retirement and not rely on you and me to support them.
The same for social security slackers. Require training and community service work. Most slackers are capable of doing computer work or other light work. Only the absolute totally disabled should be let off.
Create affordable good health care for all. If Japan and other countries can provide total health care for everyone so can we. The problem here is that medical care is a for profit business which rips us off.
Eliminate payroll tax on all jobs paying under the minimum wage. Taxes should not burden the poor or working class or even the wealthy. A Better idea is to charge a 1% tax on $15-19.99 an hour $31,200-41,579 year jobs. And 2% tax on 20-29.99 an hour 41,600- 62,379. And 3% on 30-39.99 per hour 62,400-83,179. And 4% on 40-49.99 an hour 83,200-103,979. And 5% on 50-50.99 per hour 104,000-124,779. And so on with this graduated tax. Those making more being able to pay more. Eliminate having to file tax returns. All taxes would be required to be deducted by employer. No exemptions, loopholes etc. so no tax returns are needed. Corporations would be treated the same no loopholes capital gains etc.
Require 1% tax on all stock trades, no deductions or loopholes
This would bring in huge amounts that could be put to work creating jobs to make road repairs and build affordable housing and help seniors. This would help everyone and not even hurt the wealthy.

Require corporations to pay their lowest paid workers not less than 20% that of their highest paid executives. Encourage a living wage for all workers and adequate work hours for a worker to support a family. 10 an hour x40 hours x 52 weeks = $20,800 a year. 20 an hour gives $41,600. 30 gives $62,400. 40 gives $83,200. 50 gives $104,000. $60 an hour gives $124,800. $70 an hour gives $145,600. $80 gives $166,400. $90 gives $187,200. $100 an hour gives $208,000. a year. This is 10 times minimum. 50 times the minimum would be $1,040,000. 100 times would be $ 2 Million. This means that if you pay your executives a million dollars a year the lowest paid worker should get at least $200,000. In other words if they pay their executives 200 thousand a year the lowest paid employee should be paid 20,000 a year.
Government is overgrown so lets reduce it to what is most efficient and necessary.
Remember the purpose of government is to provide for the safety and health of the people it governs.
