OK this is a slightly longer version of the Action Plan on the home page, with a few more links, and a few more ideas, too. -Sander
Here’s Our Top Ten Positive Action Proposals:
Let’s start a public interest venture capital bank - that will directly fund new ventures in the public interest. Let’s support small business and open up opportunities for capital, networking, and growth. [Read more on this here.]
Healthcare: Free Medicaid for All. Period.
Impeach Trump - Before he starts a nuclear war on a whim, or a Tweet.
Audit the Defense Department Budget - We are wasting money on a Pentagon budget that is grossly over-funded, non-transparent, secretive, and unaudited. Congress recently proposed a defense budget of $640 billion, which was $37 billion more than what President Trump proposed. We need to look at some of the top most wasteful programs, such as these.
Let’s make peace. End Islamaphobia in US Foreign Policy: Stop targeting Shi’ia Muslims and threatening Iran in the Middle East.
Declare that Peace is Possible in the Middle East and Israel: Form a Middle East Peace-making team in the name of interfaith organizing, using the three major world religions that emerged from these lands: Judiasim, Christianity and Islam.
Let’s stop helping the Saudi monarchy starve the people of Yemen. Our US Air Force planes are currently re-fueling Saudi jets which bomb the cranes that are attempting to bring in humanitarian aid in the form of food and medicines to a decimated population.
Let’s support the Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, an important new organization, currently filing a Petition for a Grand Jury in Federal Court in NY, asking for a Grand Jury investigation into 9/11. And yes, this IS a way to break with business as usual - a US Foreign Policy that kow-tows to the wishes of the Saudi Royals, the Israeli Likudniks, and the far-right political establishment in the USA.
Integrate refugees - not only should the USA continue to be a home for refugees from across the world, we should work harder on integrating the skills they have and help to integrate them into the information-age economy.
Investigate Bush/Bandar - President Obama released the “28 Pages” which were the secret financial documents of the 9/11 attacks. They implicate Bush’s friend, Saudi Prince Bandar, in being involved in financial support of 9/11 terrorists Khalid Al-Mihdhar and Nawaf Al-Hazmi. This issue is hot, having been covered by 60 Minutes, and having inspired the JASTA legislation which was passed by Congress last Summer, over Obama’s veto.
