I would propose a Constitutional amendment that bans discrimination against homosexuals and legalizes same sex marriage. This is the greatest atrocity we regularly commit in our supposedly enlightened and advanced society. It is so sad.

How about proposing a bill that allows 16 year olds the right to vote?  You could say that 16 year olds are allowed to drive in every state, and allowed to work.  So they pay gasoline taxes and even file income tax returns, so by NOT allowing them to vote, in effect, it is "Taxation without Representation".

There are so many things that you could propose, depending on what you think should be done differently in the US.  Here are some examples of things that might be proposed:

  • A bill that says that a woman can serve in any role in the armed forces that she is physically able to perform.  In other words, if a woman is physically able to pilot a helicopter, she should be able to do it even in combat situations.  Right now, women are banned from serving in combat positions.
  • A bill that would increase the age at which people can start drawing their full Social Security benefits.  Something needs to be done to reduce the amount we have to pay out in Social Security.  That is one option.
  • A bill to allow drilling for oil in places where it is not now allowed.  The most important of these are in the eastern part of the Gulf of Mexico and in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR).

Any of these would be something you could propose, depending on your political attitudes.
