    The Debt Solution: #MintInterest

    We can avoid a catastrophic US debt default by minting a trillion-dollar coin. While a debt default likely violates the 14th Amendment, by the time that cycles through the courts, it will be too late to save the full faith and credit of the United States. We can mint the interest on the debt, and…

    SuperMajority Sunday, Debt Ceilings & the US Public Policy Leaderboard

    We’re five days away from the federal government starting to shut down some of its operations because the debt ceiling will be reached. We have a solution. It’s SuperMajority Sunday when we update the US Public Policy Leaderboard (US-PPL), the Sweet Sixteen, and Key Electoral Reforms. The debt ceiling is a chance for the two…

    Politics 4.0 Methodology

    PolicyKeys uses political DNA pattern-seeking artificial intelligence that is sandwiched between the writer and the editors to forecast the amount of support for public policy solutions using role-based politics. Politics 4.0 PolicyKeys Values Methodology Politics 1.0 is each party wanting to be a one-party system. Then, Politics 2.0 is the two-party gridlock that blocks the…

    2023 Top Ten Public Policy Ideas

    We’ve invented a nonpartisan rating system for public policy solutions. The Observatory for Public Sector Innovation at the OECD has said PolicyKeys has major potential for success and replication.

  • THE TWELFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS: Twelve Parents Drumming

    THE TWELFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS: Twelve Parents Drumming

    The Pro-Family (FUN) Act is a compromise both Pro-Life and Pro-Choice can agree on. Let’s Foster Unwavering Nurture for parents and children. Here’s the math: One of the primary drivers of the economy is household formation. Since 1970, marriages are down 60%. Why? Having kids is way too expensive. The Twelve Days of Christmas On the…

    ELEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS: Primaries Opening

    Truly OPEN Primaries to Other Political Entrants Now: The two parties can’t be found in the Constitution, and public funds should go to open, NOT closed, primaries. Color us optimistic: one primary election with all candidates, red, blue, and yellow (the other half of us), all on one ballot, and let the top two to…

    TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS: Tense Lords a Weeping

    BETTER BALLOTS: Our House of Representatives was not supposed to be a House of Lords, with the dominant party telling us who would be on the ballot in their safe districts. The House was to be uniquely responsive to the will of the People. The two parties, which are not in the Constitution, have acquired…

  • NINTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS: Nine Justices Doubling

    NINTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS: Nine Justices Doubling

    A Grand Supreme Court. The pinnacle of our legal system is which ruling party is lucky enough to have a justice die so they can pack the court. Independents now outnumber members of either the red or blue political parties, and they’re repulsed by serial court-packing and their questionable ethics. Having lifetime appointed justices when…

  • EIGHTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS: Ate Gerrymanders

    EIGHTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS: Ate Gerrymanders

    Proportional Representation: Gerrymandering is the vermin eating our democratic republic alive. Let’s return the favor. Only 42 of 435 Congressional districts are competitive. No wonder the House is dysfunctional. What serial dating is to marriage, gerrymandering is to a democratic republic. Proportional representation would be making a commitment to uniting our country, not continually trying…
