Far too much to list, so I'll say most of it later. But for now I'll just mention something that directly hurts Americans for absolutely no reason. We need much cheaper costs for Universities. The tuition rates and fees have gone up over 1000% (probably more but I don't remember how much exactly) in the last 2 decades even though the quality of college and the average American's salary have remained the same. It doesn't add up. There's not even enough government aid to compensate and colleges are extremely picky with who they give scholarships to. At this rate, only the rich 1% will be able to afford college without going in debt even with financial aid.

You're going in the opposite direction. The last thing this nation needs is more militarization. We need less military. America is the largest terrorist nation in the world. We bully other nations while pretending to be the world's police.

Serious campaign finance reform/public funding, term limits and multiple political parties. Everything else would sort it's self out after that

Ban lazy people who refuse to work so we could take care of those who worked all they lives and were a positive influence to this country
Ban people who murder, should not take 10 to 20 years to carry out a death penalty fix the system
Secure the border close to 400 bodies found where I live- you save lives, smugglers don't care about the people they abandon in the heat,cold, wildlife.
Get right of race baiters such as Sharpton anyone who incites riots
Way to many things to list but start here

What we really need to fix is our political mind set, we have this idea that 2 parties work at polar opposites trying to do what they see is best for the country however when ever parties come together its become them vs us, what really needs to happen is for people to begin to learn to compromise

Your view is dim.

I only offer two years of service.
I'm not going for power but for something that each person should discover on their own.

The concept is derived from S. Korea.

But if that's the only thing you think of after hearing the word "military," then too bad. Two tears in a bucket.

1. Get rid of political parties(They are the plague when it comes to compromise, courtesy of redistricting and many other mistakes).
2. Reform the education system(Almost every part of our middle/high school curriculum is taught way too late, or at to simple a level).
3. Find a way to force the News Media to dislodge their heads from their rectums(Reports are meant to gather publicity as opposed to reporting established facts).
4. Actually separate Church and State(Still hasn't been done properly).
