1. People need to learn to pay more attention to detail, and be less apathetic, and hold less of a sense of entitlement, more assertiveness.
2. There needs to be a proportionate limit on CEO salaries, limiting them to a salary based upon the base wage of workers in the firm.
3. The blocking of the national banking system by the nation’s founders needs to be heeded. We have become enslaved, and instead of trying to deal with symptoms, we need to be dealing with the root cause, that money is not real and the banks have no right to own us or the government.
4. Everyone is focused on the big picture but we need to look at the local level.
5. I’ve been dealing with a major health care issue since I was a child. I have learned you have to be extremely assertive, sometimes calling every day to find a means of getting a life saving operation that the Oregon Health Plan was unwilling to pay for, and eventually was able to get it done at OHSU. Your insurance won’t pay for it? Then what are you planning to do about it? Be assertive.
8. My experience has been that local authorities are willing to listen if a well-documented proposal is presented.
9. Civility is essential,and dialogue and transparency equally so, in civic life.
10. Taxes need to be more equitable. We all pay for and need public services. I think that Republicans are trying to send us back to the Dark Ages, with slavery and no services.
