Imagine a country called The United States of America whose sole purpose was the advancement of it's citizens individually and as a corporate body. A nation such as Switzerland who has put forth a bold initiative in which ALL of it's citizens receive a 2,500 Franc Basic Income Every Month. Added to that the RIGHT for all Swiss citizens to have access to a bank loan to purchase a home.

our duty now to begin to lay the plans and determine the strategy for
the winning of a lasting peace and the establishment of an American
standard of living higher than ever before known. We cannot be content,
no matter how high that general standard of living may be, if some
fraction of our people—whether it be one-third or one-fifth or
one-tenth—is ill-fed, ill-clothed, ill-housed, and insecure.
This Republic had its beginning, and grew to its present strength,
under the protection of certain inalienable political rights—among them
the right of free speech, free press, free worship, trial by jury,
freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. They were our rights to
life and liberty.|
As our nation has grown in size and stature, however—as our industrial economy expanded—these political rights proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness.
We have come to a clear realization of the fact that true individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. “Necessitous men are not free men.” People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.
In our day these economic truths have become accepted as self-evident. We have accepted, so to speak, a second Bill of Rights under which a new basis of security and prosperity can be established for all—regardless of station, race, or creed."
Among these are:
Imagine a United States of America where instead of bailing out the Robber Barons on Wall street, the same 3 Trillion dollars was given to the citizens of this once great nation to settle ALL public and privates debts. Imagine, every family in America with a home that was paid off. No Credit cards debts, no mortgage debts, no student loans, no medical bills, no loan payments, no car payments, nothing at all. This would give all American's a vested interest in the American economy and finally a chance at the American dream.
Imagine a United States of America that was actually FOR Americans...
