14. EMBRACE Progessive (very socially liberal and medium socialist) economics and social policies.

Refund public education and pay public school teachers high salaries such as professionals entrusted with the future of our children and grandchildren deserve.

Climate Change: re-join the World. Foster sustainability and the jobs of the future. (hint: China and Europe are busting a gut developing green technology.)

Health Care: Single Payer, Choose Your Own Doctor, Allow doctors to charge above Single Payer fee, but all people in any area should have the lowest fee for that are met (nobody but nobody should lack for preventive, remedial, or palliative health care).

Reinstate and extend equal rights for LGBTQAU throughout society.

Gun Control: Extend background checks to ALL sales, even private sales. No sales of assault-rifle mass-killer type weapons (existing ones can be kept and maybe even resold until a way can be found to take them out of circulations without "grabbing" them, perhaps buyback from agency whenever an owner dies or wishes to get rid of one).

Increased intake of refugees commensurate with international responsibilities: 44 so far this year is ridiculous.

Livable minimum wage: Raise to $15 one dollar a year if not faster.

Cooperative non-belligerent foreign policy: no more MAGA: Make America Go Alone.

Secure the election systems from top to bottom, which may require some level of enforced federal control or at least standards. Get rid of Gerrymandering, Voter Suppression, and dirty tricks.

Fact & Science & Evidence based policy making and legislative standards. Reinstate scientific freedom to speak out. Reinstate multiple scientific studies. Refund NOAA and other agencies.

Look into Basic Income and Basic Housing free for all who need. It works wonders and cost less in every jurisdiction that has tried it.

So much more.
