The common theme is ending the entrapment and exploitation of US citizens.


Crime and Prisons



Foreign Policy

  • End all visas for Saudis and freeze their US assets until they establish freedom to change religion and freedom of speech, stop murdering gays, and stop sponsoring terrorism.
  • Ban oil imports from countries without democracy, freedom to change religion, or freedom of speech.
  • Put compensating tariffs on foreign goods from countries with lower wages or lower environmental standards.

Freedom of Speech

  • Prohibit job termination based on political activities outside of work.


Medical Care

Men's Rights


  • Define the dollar as one ounce of pure silver minted by the US government.
  • Audit the Federal Reserve and make all their books and operations completely open to the public.

Real Estate



  • Require every employer and financial company to use the exact same printed and online format for every W-2, 1099, etc, and to make all financial data available to customers via standardized REST APIs. All fields must always have exactly the same names and be in the same positions. HR Block etc lobby to make sure this does not happen.
  • Increase taxes on non-productive rent-seeking and decrease taxes on income from productive work or sales. Swap the current maximum tax rates on income from work vs capital gains.
  • End Prop 13 in California.
  • Prohibit sales tax on used property that was already taxed per the full retail price when first sold.
  • Prohibit all public sector unions, especially teacher's unions and prison guard unions.


  • Give official federal priority to fast safe cheap rail transit in place of subsidies and favoritism for cars, oil, and highways.


  • Require proof of US citizenship to vote.
  • Establish the inalienability of the right to vote for all US citizens, whether in prison or not.
  • Publicly fund all congressional and presidential campaigns
  • Publicly post all bills two weeks in advance of Congressional vote. Require that Congressmen personally read entire bill before voting on it.
  • People should have a right to petition Congress regarding a specific proposal, and if they get enough signatures require a roll call vote in both houses of Congress on the verbatim topic of the petition, without amendments.

How you can help: If you agree with any or all of these proposals, please add your own feedback on the proposals and post links to the proposals on other websites.

Unmarried status: men should have equal post-conception rights and the ability to refuse financial obligation for a child where the woman unilaterally decides to continue the pregnancy.

Yes, that's a favorite issue of mine, and I'd like to get there, but I think it feels like it would be hard to get enough support and I've already get 3 men's rights issues that seem more likely to get support:

Ban corporate HR department and university Title IX kangaroo courts.
Mandate paternity testing at birth. Eliminate all child support obligation for non-biological fathers.
Require courts to assume that a woman of age, voluntarily alone in a bedroom with a man, has consented to sex.

Establish the inalienability of the right to vote for all US citizens, whether in prison "or" not.

BTW - I think that your third point (assumption of sexual consent if in a bedroom) is more controversial than my point. But I understand...

@krc you know what, you are right. I should add post-conception rights for men, because it is an injustice that they just don't have any.

I'll find a space.

Thanks for pointing out the error! Fixed now.

I'm interested in hearing more about banning corporate HR.

Patrick, would you please explain your logic/reasoning ?

@BayArea thanks for the push. I expanded on the idea here:

Patrick thanks for sharing.

Regarding the Kangaroo courts, this is a topic that I don't think many people are very familiar with unless they've been through that system for some offense.

Thanks for bringing it to light.

Confine Colleges and Universities to plagarism and other scholastic offenses.

Educational Institutions that receive $1 of Federal (or State) Funding cannot expel or discipline students over suspected acts that would be considered Felonies. They must wait until a conviction is reached by a proper court.

Women's Studies Professors and Sociology Majors are not qualified to run a court judging Felonies, and since many allow the accuser not to testify...

Yes, good way to put it! I added your comment to my original post about kangaroo courts:
