Divert 1% of Federal Bureau of Prisons $6.8 billion budget and transfer that $68 million to the Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs to establish a national pilot program of “zero tolerance probation” under the Hawaii’s Opportunity Probation with Enforcement (HOPE) model.

Stop the war on drugs – or at least address the demand issue more than the supply side

For years we have fought a war on drugs by tackling the supply side of the equation. That approach has failed miserably. We have spent hundreds of millions on programs to eradicate coca in Latin America and poppies in Asia; plus millions more to intercept cocaine and heroin transiting Central America and other parts of the world on its way to the US.

Switch to the FLAT TAX System

Eliminate income tax and go to the Flat Tax System which has been proposed for years. This way everyone will be assured to pay taxes. Also we will have more take home pay as well as not having to be burdened with tax laws and the like. it's a shame when you have to carry the burden as a tax payer, when your local drug dealers get to keep all their take home pay, as well as illegal immigrants. Think about it people, this ...more »
