I like a lot of those ideas. I also believe that we’d make headway advocating de-federalization of drug programs returning to the pre 1971 war on drugs model. We don’t have to get into the legalization argument but can be supporting an approach I think a majority of Americans could embrace. I think this could be done also with many social programs starting with many smaller ones. Empower states and empower people. When the federal government shuts down you shouldn’t have your state parks shutting down. Why not de-federalize those? We have to think the way the average person thinks. Too often GOP targets ideas to the wonks. We need to appeal to basic instincts of individualism.
I think you are correct about drugs— unfortunately. There is massive public support for legalization.
I think it is bad but probably would not hurt the nation as much as continued democratic rule.
I also think small scale but vivid ideas like the parks would probably work well.
I would also add a notion that federal subsidies have to be paid back. That could be done experimentally to an entire range of federal activities.
