Top Ten Ways to Improve the United States

The U.S. is definitely a powerful country, but it is crumbling. How can we fix it? This list will give details, although it is the governments job in taking care of America. But I thought this list will help anyway.
The Top Ten
1 Help more people attend college

Think about this my generation wants free college right?. But despite me being a liberal humanitarian even I know just like some republicans that someone or some group is going to have to pay someone or something. This is why we should make all universities and colleges including rich ones public instead of private. Public schools don't need paid tuition. We could at least make it way more cheaper if it can't be free. There is no reason why 1-2 classes for a year should cost a student the same amount a house cost.

College is what helps you become a smart citizen. Without college, we wouldn't be that smart, and it could affect jobs and other things.

I feel like the costs should just be lowered because it should't be around 1,000 dollars for a cheap college for one class. You also have to buy the books also.

We need to have more people learning about finance and business too

2 Stop violence

Increase investigations into hate groups, massive terrorism, push men to ask for help, criminal reform, stop private prisons, get better drug and drinking services. Create a better way of living so people will be happier with their lives. Fix the school to prison pipeline

What are the causes of violence? Poverty is one of them. Areas in the U.S. with higher poverty rates could mean more violence. Helping the poor out could help reduce violence.

It's well-established that poverty does not cause crime, but rather that crime causes poverty.

Lower violence will lead to people feeling safer and more secure

3 Donate more money to charities and to the poor

If all of us donated what we possibly could the world might just get a little better for everyone. But there are pros and cons. LIke people abusing this like those who abuse welfare. But here's the thing that could also be fixed if we tackled the problems of not enough jobs, not enough unions, not enough healthcare.

It should be no surprise that Americans give by far the most total money to charity worldwide. What is not widely known is that the US is second only to the country of Myanmar [90 percent Buddhist] for per capita giving, and percentage of income giving.
Interestingly, Atlanta is the best, at 6-9 percent of discretionary income, and San Francisco the worst, at 3-4 percent.
Canada and New Zealand are close, but European nations are far behind.

America has many poor citizens. We should help donate money to them and to charities. Just looking at poor people or seeing how they act is just very sad to watch.

"We can make a program that helps the poor"

4 Provide more opportunities

Create an office of opportunity: There are million without education, millions without jobs, millions without healthcare. It's time for a change. We could give job training to homeless people, We could give them affordable housing, We could get them better drinking and drug services like safe sites.

More amenities, jobs, stores, etc could help America a lot as well.

We have a lot of opportunities already, but we will still need more as long as 1 american is in poverty

5 Find ways to stop global warming

Mandate that couples take showers together. Take fewer showers and shorter showers. Get America's factories solar-wind and rain-powered. It starts with the factories. Tax fossil fuels more and stop them from donating to campaigns. Incentivize people by giving families that get renewable energy, buy and consume less, carpool regularly tax cuts.

Its another common problem with America, and the entire Earth. We should find ways to help reduce global warming. If we didn't, Earth could be burned to a crisp in millions of years.

We can make it less severe but only mother nature can do anything about it.

Save the earth!

6 Be more generous

Giving the poor money, helping people out, and lots of other things that is generous would help the country out a lot, in my opinion.

7 Use electricity wisely

So as not to be too spoilt

8 Stop racism

In case you haven't noticed, many Republicans and Independents also think Trump is racist. Also, his policies weren't taken seriously until he became a serious candidate. He has actually run for the Democratic nomination before but never got very far because we didn't like him even when he was on our side. I'll freely admit there are racists in the Democratic Party. The difference is we make sure they never become our candidates.

Racism is a common problem in America, especially in the South. If we help reduce that, the South and America itself would be a happier place. I mean think about it, if Martin Luther King didn't exist, Blacks would be poor and sad, its unbearable. We should find ways to stop racism.

People are gonna be racist. No matter how hard you try to change it, some people are just going to be jerks.

The only true way to make sure we all get along is to kill racists. The only way to end racism is to kill "it".

9 Ban guns

Just the automatics. People can keep their 22's, pistols, and shotguns. As long as they are only pump/pull/lever action. Put limits on the magazines or bullet capacity for all guns. Increase taxes on the selling, buying, and owning of guns and ammo. Make background checks far more authoritarian. Lengthen the waiting period on background checks from 3-5 days to 14 days.

Guns nowadays only have one cardinal purpose: to kill. Besides, most guns used in shootings were obtained through legal means.

America is not the only country that has criminals with guns. But you have guns in the shops. Its known for shooting.

You actually think criminals follow gun laws? You must be a special kind of stupid.

10 Recycle

Imagine you live in a place full of garbage. that's what America and the world could be like if we didn't recycle often.

Provide more jobs and save the earth

The Contenders
11 Decrease deforestation

There are some areas in America where forests are being cut down, and trees help provide oxygen to the area. If every tree in the world were gone, there would be much less oxygen.

Plant more trees and stop killing them

12 Impeach Donald Trump

Should be in first place.

Get that trash locked up

13 Give men and women equal rights

Equal payment. Oh you just want to attack feminists.

Men or women should have their equal rights.

They should already have them. This should be a no-brainer.

14 Kick California out
15 Kick Florida out
16 Like Trump
17 Smaller government

More power to the states, less federal government.

18 Get rid of pollution

Have cleaner air

19 Have a Military Junta
20 Stop being addicted to phones
21 Restrict plastic

Reduce would be better. Some plastics like biodegradable should replace the common single use plastic

22 Reinstate the draft as a punishment

-for stupid millennials only.

23 Kick New England out
24 Vote straight-ticket Democrat
25 Use the metric system
