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 »

Create the Six Provinces of California

Instead of six new states, create six new Provinces using the same plan as the proposed Six Californias. Drastically reduce the size and power of the State government by transferring most of the authority to the Provinces. There is a proposal to do this in New York State.

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 »

Drought Solution

Many parts of the US currently suffer from water shortages. Many countries around the world suffer from water shortages. My idea is to institute greywater reclamation systems and rainwater harvesting systems.

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 »

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.

Prohibit government departments funding themselves via fines

Government departments have perverse incentives to excessively fine people and confiscate property via civil forfeiture. A constitutional amendment, requiring that any fines or fees be either given to the state treasury or returned to tax payers via tax refunds, would fix this problem. Without the ability to fund their departments via excessive fees, parking tickets, traffic tickets, civil forfeiture, and other seizures, ...more »
