    so this exercise is no fun for me since I'd still have a Teabagger Legislature no matter what.

    Soo..if I added on to yours (and I agree on all of them) I would add for California

    * SINGLE PAYER BEFORE EVERYTHING ELSE *
    Then:
    1-High Speed Rail and funding for the Desert Express
    2-Increase in Conservation funding and a ban on fracking in sensitive ecosystems (Monterey County being the focus)
    3-Designation of 10 new State Parks since the last 10 years has only seen 6 square miles added to the State Parks System (a pathetic indifference to our wilderness)
    4-Gay Marriage in the Constitution
    5-Prostitution Legalization while heavily regulated and taxed (a similar model to Nevada)
    6-Increase in Arts Funding. Arts is always on the chopping-block and I'd like to change that
    7-An increase in income taxes (I'd be willing to slightly lower corporate taxes to make this work)
    8-Death penalty abolition added to the Constitution (beyond statutory)
    9-"Make for-profit prisons and schools illegal in the state"
    Agree 1000%. I'd also add cash advance services that make a profit on ripping off the extremely destitute
    10-Electoral Law to be more like Washington's. Immediate registration.

    I also have 10 more for my prospective future home state, Maryland, but I'll leave it there for brevity.
