More police, stricter enforcement has to lower crime rates…Couldn’t hurt.
Raise the minimum wage and raise middle class standard of living…Of course.
Eliminate poverty by handing out food and money…Worth a try.
When the rich get richer, the money will trickle down to everyone…It could happen.
Raise taxes to increase revenue…Makes sense.
Cut waste in government to balance the budget…Has to work…right?
Genetically altered food can increase productivity and help feed the world...How could that be bad?
Alcohol is bad; make it illegal…Problem solved.
The value of some ideas change with a moving target of economic and social conditions. We need to be open to adjusting "status quo" positions.
