I’ve proposed 3 initiatives.
- 1,000% sales tax on large campaign political advertisements within California. All proceeds to benefit public education. This is meant to combat the corrupting influence of money in politics. Importantly, this would only apply to large campaigns (>$1M of annual spend) and has provisions to avoid nullification by the courts.
- Removal of party affiliation from ballots. This is an effort to remove party line voting and partisan generalizations. This is meant to combat the corrupting domination of the major political parties.
- Lower drinking age to 18. This is about equal rights. 18 year olds have nearly every burden and privilege of adults … except the right to drink alcohol. This is a misguided aberration from 1984 that should be corrected. ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Minimum_Drinking_Age_Act
