What Must Change In Our Government

*

A true citizen works to change the corruption and violence of his or her government.

This list includes only a small number of the many things which must be changed if our government is

to reflect the spiritual values of the vast majority of the US whether theist or athiest.

 

1. the most warmongering population in the world.. 17 nations bombed or invaded since 1980
2. the most prisoner punishing nation with highest % of incarcerated prisoners
3. Only the US and New Zealand, 2 countries out of some 200, allow the tv advertising of drugs with lethal side effects
4. Only 2 nations, the US and Israel, voted in the UN to sanction Cuba.
5. Less than 20% of the world's countries serially murder prisoners (capital punishment). In addition the federal government tries to take capital cases away from the 42 states which do not execute.
6. The US has more toxic food ads on tv than any other nation.
7. The US has the most obese population in the world.
8. The US and perhaps 9 other nations have nuclear weapons. These governments have refused to eradicate them.
9. The US has the highest health care costs in the world yet is near the bottom of the industrialized world in health care.
10. The US has the highest prescription drug prices in the world and in Ohio spent 62 million dollars in 2017 defeating a pricecapping proposal which would have saved citizens 400 million dollars a year.Bankruptcies from medical costs, greed among health insurance co.

11. The US in a Security Council vote in which 16 nations
voted to condemn Israel's illegal settlements in Palestine was the only nation to abstain.
12. The US has more serial killers than any other country, more mass shootings than any other country. The violence of the US is increased by Republican opposition to gun control. The National Rifle Association promotes
hunting and is supported by hunters who represent less than 5% of the population, yet dominate Republicans in the House and Senate, as well as those installed in the White House by fraud.
13. US only nation in world not to sign Paris climate accord which works to reduce carbon emissions in order to prevent global temperature extremes of heat and cold as well
