Election Security

Mail in ballots should be nationalized along with having a bi-partisan watchdog group in every district for oversight.

Given the current status of Covid-19 and the absolute need to continue social distancing for the next several months if not years, going to a nationwide system of mail-in ballots along with automatic voter registration for anyone born in or naturalized in the USA would make for much fairer elections, especially for those who can't take time off work to stand in line for hours to vote.

Community Paramedicine for Offensive Operations Against COVID19

We are on the defensive, waiting for our ICUs to be overrun by patients that are being allowed to deteriorate untreated at home until they become acute.

That is a losing strategy.

I propose we take the fight to the enemy before it reaches and overruns our base camps.

We do that with interdiction actions taken in the field...delivery of early onset care in the field utilizing Community Paramedicine.

Please see attached... more »

Portable applications of negative ions, UVC light and Far UVC light to reduce the airborne transmission of Covid-19

This idea concerns Covid-19. Since the Covid-19 campaign no longer exists here, I have no recourse but to post this idea, and many others, in the five current campaigns which still exist here.

It appears that DHS no longer reviews ideas that are submitted on this site. I hope they will disprove this assumption by communicating with me on each of my ideas and directly address any potential which they may have.

Develop a "headset" to emit negative ions and Far UVC light near the face and thus reduce the transmission of Covid-19.
