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 »

End Gerrymandering ! Redistrict based on mathematical algorithm.

Gerrymandering is a very big problem. And the citizen's redistricting commission helped, but did not make it go away. Whenever people are involved in the process there will be compromises, there will be "Horse Trading", there will be millions of dollars, and years of lost time. What if I told you that there is a way to end gerrymandering, save millions of dollars, and get the process done in days instead of years. ...more »

Bring actual democracy to the U.S.A.

California and the United States are Republics, not true democratic states, due to vote count distortions like first past the post and gerrymandered districts, which all mathematically decay into single party +1 states of unequal representation. Well known voting methods that require only trivial ballot changes, studied by institutions like The Center For Election Science, can mitigate the effects and unearned power ...more »

Increase Legislative Transparency in California

Politicians know that information is power, so they often prefer to limit public scrutiny in order to achieve more favorable outcomes for themselves and the special interest groups that support them. The California Legislature Transparency Act, which may be on the ballot this fall, counters the strong incentives facing elected officials to conceal legislative proceedings by requiring that the public have more access ...more »

Better representation along Sierra-Nevada mountains

The (now defunct) "Six Californias" idea was very interesting. I wondered who drew the lines, why they were drawn there, and especially disturbing: who named the resulting states. I liked the idea otherwise, and feel a better first step is to find commonality amongst a region within California that has a distinct difference to rally behind. With 1-in-8 Americans calling California home (38 million people), no policy, ...more »
