Government privacy intrustions on citizens
Addressing climate change
Addressing generational poverty
The biggest problem that government needs to address is ending out- and in- sourcing, both the legal and illegal types, and thus return millions of jobs to the Americans to whom these jobs ethically and patriotically belong.
That would go the longest way to raising the economy out of the lingering ashes of The Great Recession as well as halt the continuing slide of America into city-state status of the one-world U.N. government that Obama's Multi-Cultural Internationalists desire.
When the election is over and we open our eyes, it will sadly be too late to wonder what the hell just happened.

"Entitlement Reform". That's what is about to sink us. "Size", in general, is the problem with our government. There is too much of it.

If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.
There are some additional structural things that could improve the quality of government that ties in with the term limits of one term. I like the idea of taking away the direct democracy of selecting all of the senators in the Senate and allow the state Governors to appoint one of the two senators of their state, with state congressional confirmation of the selection, and allow these appointed senators to be re-appointed as many times as the state government wants to re-appoint them. The hope is this will improve the quality of the Senate and many of the really good senators will be re-appointed when their six year term is up adding some experience and wisdom to the Senate. I'd also like to see the Senate have to vote for 10% of the House of Representatives that will serve additional terms when their legally restrained one term in office is up. For example a really talented person gets elected to their one term in the House by the citizens of their state, the Senators see this person is a benefit to the nation, a really good congressman, and so they are voted by the Senate for a second term, and no longer represent their districts, but are counted as the 10% of the House of Representatives that are voted in by the Senate. Some of these 10% may have long careers in the House, others may lose out to new congressman that impress the Senate. The hope here is to keep some continuity and leadership in the House that is 90% one term. The Presidency I'd like to see as one term of six years with a vote of confidence by the congress after 3 yrs. If 3/4 vote in both houses call for elections, then the sitting President would face a general public election.

Probably energy, and all of the interventionism that goes along with it.
That would help the economy big time.
Ony two parties can't represent people accurately. Currently a person can't be Pro-Life and Pro Same Sex Marriage. They have no representation in the government. I would Finance two candidates (one Liberal and one Conservative) to run at the same time. That way maybe we would eliminate the concept of "wasting" your vote for a party other than the current two.
From the ashes.
