    Recommended by:
    jamess, Eric Nelson

    guaranteed education through jr college or trade school

    health care for everyone with costs brought down by efficiencies

    80+ % of energy from renewable sources

    high speed rail network coast to coast with feeder lines within areas

    serious work on cleanup of environment

    food more locally grown and grown without chemical nasties---ie  tending toward organic

    Serious Work of cutting the acidity of our oceans

    Gun laws that require permits and have teeth to keep as many "crazies" as possible from running around armed

    more jobs at living wage than people looking for them--enough for people to be able to move if they need to

    Acknowledgement of  basic rights--freedom to marry whomever you choose

    Widespread understanding that nobody has the right to force his/her religious beliefs on other people--or their bodies based on religious beliefs

    That's just a few off the top of my head in no particular order---

    Oh yeah, a space elevator---access to the whole solar system and a big part of renewable energy

    And viable colonies in orbit, on the moon and on Mars, at least

    ;)
