Electing any legislature to a one-year term is an awful idea. Nothing would get done and congresscritters would think about reelection even more than they currently do.

I think it could potentially work at a local level, though not at national.

social conservatism. anti abortion, anti-gay marriage (any state marriage really but the whole concept personally annoys me), anti-gun control, anti-immigration, anti-cultural marxism and 'individualism' in general. the 1960s murdered this country.

Eh, i think this is our main difference. I'm generally quite libertarian except on gun rights and I think it's kinda misguided to think "cultural Marxism" has any impact left other than attempts at forcing equality

third position economics. smash the fed and international financial parasites, credit unions are better. end 'free trade.' some deregulation and spending cuts would actually make sense but i'm very much in favor of nationalizing large portions of healthcare and oil, coal and natural gas. also i really don't like environmentalism, we need more nuclear power and i want to avoid any 'green' tax hikes or subsidization schemes to fight alleged global warming. id also be in favor of the fair tax or a vat so long as it was somewhat progressive. i don't want to screw over the poor.

I agree with most of this except for promoting nuclear power which I think is good as a temporary solution but in the long term unsustainable and risky. I don't like flat taxes either.

isolationism. bring our troops home and put them at the border. we don't need to spend 6 x more than china as a country and police a bunch of countries for no reason. also we get nothing out of our 'friendship' with israel, they are a burden on the tax payers and war criminals. i consider the neocons to be israeli firsters and un-american, more so than a lot of left wingers.

Agree, though obvs. we differ on how we percieve Israel.

against universal suffrage. there need to at least be safeguards like voter testing to screen out the incompetent and lazy. as it is democracy is a highly flawed concept even taking that into account. i don't have a very high opinion of liberal values in general, not everyone is created equal. sorry.

I support democracy as a check against tyranny, but if a better system came along, sure. It'd be too dangerous to support a limited franchise again imo.

oh and last but not least end the stupid wars on concepts that don't do anything positive for the country like the war on drugs. the whole fake rambo mentality is pretty nauseating coming from ex-coke heads like bush and obama.

Agree.

third position economics. smash the fed and international financial parasites, credit unions are better. end 'free trade.' replace income tax with some sort of national sales tax (this doesn't have to be regressive). some deregulation and spending cuts would actually make sense but i'm very much in favor of nationalizing large portions of healthcare and oil, coal and natural gas. also i really don't like environmentalism, we need more nuclear power and i want to avoid any 'green' tax hikes or subsidization schemes to fight alleged global warming. we need more industry in general in this country.

Most Republicans would balk at nationalization.

Ten economic points, because i cant be bothered rewriting everything yet

1. A new Bretton Woods system and the fixing of exchange rates. Bank of England powers taken back into government hands. Quit the EU, WTO, IMF, World Bank.
2. Nationalization of key banks, utilities, transport, energy, shipbuilding, steel, automobiles and a large scale reindustrialization program. Use a national champions policy to promote nation over profit. Form a nationally owned mutual bank to give low interest loans to business for development.
3. Repeal of trade union laws, with co-determination signed into place and state/business/unions to act as checks and balances. Abolition of the minimum wage in favour of collective bargaining.
4. Heavy regulation on finance to make sure capital serves the nation and not the elites, including a ban on payday loans and a limit of 48% on interest rates.
5. Introduction of industrial tariffs to protect British industries against unfair competition from countries with little worker/environmental regulation.
6. Move towards a 30 hour workweek by 2020, combined with huge subsidies for solar power & wind/wave farms in the North Sea.
7. Merge income tax and National Insurance, re-introduce the 10% rate for lower earners and make tax more progressive - top rate of 80%. Reduce VAT gradually. Introduce Tobin tax and LVT.
8. Strongly enforce anti-monopoly laws and introduce regulation on supermarkets to decentralize and promote small business.
9. Move towards a corporatist welfare model, including Japanese style "shataku" housing. Decentralize the NHS and give municipal needs more weight.
10. Slash military spending, end Trident, legalize and tax drugs/prostitution. Introduce copyleft.
