A Dream Cabinet for Millennials — Supported by a Council of Wise Elders

 

For progressives and independents who do not buy into the partisan duopoly in Washington,Jill Stein and the Green Party received a disappointing 1 percent of the vote, Nearly 100 million chose not to vote and more or less 125 million voted for the Democrats or the GOP.  This was the most angry election in recent history with half of voters irate and livid at the other half.  Isn’t it time we stay Cease and Desist? Isn’t it time to put a stop to this madness? Doing more Doing more of the same in the parties wont change anything. For the past 32 years, neither Democrats nor Republicans have constructively changed much and put the nation on a proper course.  There is little time to debate and argue and all efforts must be made to:

 

  • Stop regime change in foreign nations
  • No longer support to dictators and rogue nations such as Saudi Arabia, Israel and Ukraine
  • Stop widespread spying and surveillance on all citizens
  • Stop energizing the fossil fuel industry contributing to further global warming and make efforts to reverse its trends
  • Stop the proliferation of GMOs, industrial monocrop agriculture and the destruction of the environment by the meat industry
  • Reverse the dumbing down of educational institutions and put a halt on charter schools for profit
  • Pass a national universal healthcare law
  • Obstruct the power of the pharmaceutical industry to dictate and control federal health policies
  • Restore Glass-Steagall and curtail Wall Street’s casino gambling of derivatives
  • Restore the nation’s broken, archaic infrastructures: raiways, highways, schools, bridges, etc
  • Revert private prisons to the public sector.
  • Eliminate the war on drugs and legalize
  • Stop job outsourcing overseas that take away jobs at home
  • Regulate trade agreements that injure the public interest and domestic economy
  • Eliminate Citizens United
  • Restore the Constitutional separation of Church and State.

 

A fundamental question everyone should be asking is:  Knowing that another Democrat, including Bernie Sanders, will be unable to implement the necessary and urgent changes listed, what then could be changed that might lead to a truly progressive revolution? Perhaps the answer may be found among our nation’s older wise elders who are not corrupted—our humanitarians and visionaries, peace activists, educators, economists and sociologists, diplomats and nonpartisan politicians and spiritual leaders to work with and guide the best and brightest of Generation Y and Millennial Generation. Together perhaps they can repair the damage the US has inflicted upon other nations and the planet, raise again America’s reputation among the community of nations, demilitarize our world, cease pathologizing human life and criminalizing normal behavior, and finally usurp power from the corporate oligarchs who now threaten all of life on Earth.

 

We are offering a radical new view of the future for a Millennial cabinet and advisory councils of wise elders..
