Where the Progressives and Libertarians Can and SHOULD Unite
1) Ending or drastically scaling back on the drug war (sorry, Mr. O'Reilly). 2) Comprehensive immigration reform (and especially allowing Masters and PhD graduates to remain in the country). 3) Reductions in military spending (AKA pentagon reform). 4) A much lesser internationalist foreign policy. 5) Ending corporate welfare. 6) Tax reform; reducing the rates in exchange for eliminating loopholes. 7) Entitlement reform involving further means-testing. 8) Visa reform in an effort to reclaim a lot of the tourism which was lost after 9/11. 9) Campaign finance reform. 10) Welfare reform; beefing up the Earned Income Tax Credit in exchange for dismantling much of the bureaucracy. 11) Marriage equality.
