Four Californias

Four Californians allows counties that border Nevada, Arizona and Oregon to determine which state they wish to affiliate. The idea is simple. The counties that border neighboring states have the right vote to succeed from California and join that state. Once the Neighboring state agrees to accept them, we will redraw the borders to reflect the new state boundaries. California needs a refresh. Our public schools ...more »

Bring back the real bicameral congress

Reynolds v. Sims in 1964 made the huge mistake of prohibiting states from having federal-style bicameral congresses. How this could be unconstitutional when the federal government operates this way is a mystery. A true bicameral congress gives each sub-government (counties in the context of a state, states in the context of the US as a whole) an equal vote in the senate and a vote proportional to their population in ...more »

Fix the California Income Tax Code and save $$$$$

While preparing my income taxes I discovered that the depreciation schedules for real estate investments are different for federal and state tax returns. Why is this? I also looked at five past tax returns and discovered that my California income tax was around 30% of my federal obligation. We could greatly simplify the California tax code by having individuals (and maybe even corporations?) file out a one page California ...more »

Tie traffic ticket / citation fines to income!

Fines for tickets / citations should be linked to your income as they are NOW in Europe. As the gap between rich and poor continues to grow, fines continue to grow. In the past 15 years fines have increased by 500%! In light of the current unprecedented inequality, it is a gross injustice to ruin someone's life, livelihood and ability to earn a living by imposing flat fines without regard to income or ability to pay. ...more »

Take the profit fom being a politician

Return California to apart time legislature. Representives do not get a salery, pension, medical, other perks, just a stipend to cover costs for attending a legislative session once every 2 years.

Take away the profit and lifetime income and those representing us will be acting for the good of the State and the people.

Honest Legislator Program Act

Currently trust in the Legislature is very low and after 3 legislators were convicted of felonies and 3 others left the legislature to work for those that lobbied them, it is clear we need to demand far more of our elected officials than we have been. We need Legislators that are honest with the people of the state of California and ones that are not controlled by anyone other than the voters of the great state of California. ...more »

Business Related Gov Forms

California has many forms that a business has to fill out. They don't accept most of these forms online, and thus must be filled out by had and mailed in. It is also hard to find which forms need to be filled out. There should be a website so that these forms can be filled out online with autofill, good design, and ease of use. The website-owning-organization would then print out the paper forms in the format that the ...more »

Make all votes count through fair Electoral College reform

California has the largest number of Electoral College votes in the United States with 55. Like all but two states (Maine & Nebraska), CA awards its EC votes on a winner-take-all basis, nullifying the votes of MILLIONS of Californians every presidential election (exact same outcome as the popular vote). Since CA is one of the few states that has an independent commission to draw congressional districts, now is the time ...more »

CA Results: Performance Dashboard by Every Local Government

The number one job for every government is to be communicate accurately and clearly with its stakeholders. This has become hard, despite initiatives like open data.
