Incentivize Charter Provinces for Statehood

In order to gain support from the State of California for areas of the State that wish to reconstitute themselves as new States, I believe we need to align the incentives for such a goal with the financial interests of California. We say we believe the greater personal and business freedoms of such a region will - along with many desirable intangible benefits - generate greater economic activity and growth. Therefore, ...more »

Since 1973 when the first federal laws were passed supposedly to limit business money contributions to politicians, no effective legislation has been passed. Every attempt has been subverted or been found to have loopholes. The ...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 »
