All of this would be less important, giving the ban on media ads.
Public school would be paid at the national level, by number of students (regardless of performance). Any outside income (gifts of cash or supplies by parents for example) would reduce funding by 50% of the amount of income (i.e. parent donates $100, then federal funding is reduced by $50), used for the pool, to benefit schools with less generous parents.

No company or corporation could buy another.
No company could have more than one location, except in those cases where the nature of the company required multiple locations (such as delivery service). Exception could be made on a case by case basis, if the expansion could be shown to benefit society as a whole enough to offset the anti-competitiveness.
No US military protection of private property, on US soil or abroad. For example, US oil companies would have to pay for their own private security to guard pipelines. Private corporate interests could not be considered "national interests", even if the product they produce is of value to the nation.

One could apply for citizenship at anytime, up to age 40, however, once revoked, you could not get it back for 15 years, and would have to begin the process from the beginning.
