What are the three most unconventional U.S. policy suggestions you've heard of lately, and where did you hear them? By "unconventional," I'm trying to get at the nature of an idea that the majority of news-watchers (let alone the general public) haven't heard of but that enough analysts or experts or politicians have heard of to at least make it credible. ...[text shortened]... don't agree with the proposal--I just want it to have made you stop and think.
Couldn't anything be an out-of-mainstream suggestion?
We could legalize all drugs, speech and weapons.
We could make the entire planet clothing optional.
We can ban all abortions or make all of them legal.
We could eliminate certain taxes such as the estate tax or income tax or sales tax or we could make them very high for certain groups.
We could ban the death penalty or extend it to rape or certain white collar crimes.
We could allow bigamy
These are non-mainstream ideas and while none of them seem likely to be implemented and I am sure there are people who would not be bothered by some suggestions.
