    A helicopter lands in your back yard, and men in black suits and sunglasses pick you up, fly you to the Whitehouse, and sit you down in the Oval Office.

    "The old president wasn't working out. The nation is practically in a state of emergency, and computer simulations say you are the best person for the job. Raise your right hand and repeat after me..."

    Now you're the leader of the free world, and you've got carte blanch to make or break law in the US as you see fit. What do you decree?

    -----

    It's been about 4 years since I originally posted this. Some things have changed since then, some things haven't. What have you got in mind for your next 4 year term?

    If it could be so! Unfortunately the prez don't get to make law, that's the job of the Senate. But, to play along, I would
    1. Go to a Fair Tax system
    2. Do away with NAFTA, and GATT. Impose a tarriff on all imports from other countries.
    3. Now America is in a position to create jobs.
    4. Revamp the intitlements system in America. Once there are jobs, get folks off welfare. Do away with all the intitlements such as SS, Medicare, and Medicade, and welfare. People will invest in 401K plans for retirement.
    5. Revamp the prision system, if you don't grow it, you don't eat it. No more TV, gyms, or ball courts. Prisioners will be too busy for these things. Make it really hard, so they don't want to come back.
    6. Outlaw Lobbyists!
    7. Make it law that all insurance companies in America will be able to insure anyone in any state. If you do business in America, anyone who wants to buy your insurance can.

    I would have every single member of this so called administration arrested and locked up behind bars where they couldnt do anymore damage. I would hire the best of the best conservative patriots in the country and I would stop EVERYTHING. Nothing would be funded that didnt make perfect sense and nobody would draw a check that hasnt paid into the system.

    I would put an end to any and every pork barrel spending, stop and reverse every single illegal policy that has been put into action by this illegal administration, I would make the 2nd ammendment be followed to the letter and stop all of these nonsense regulations.

    I would fire EVERYONE in washington and start fresh, except for the new conservative hires. I would unload any interest the gov. has in any corporations. I would evaluate and defund fannie and freddy until everything was in order. I would force every member of the house and senate to pay their own way on commercial flights and no more lavish motels and parties.

    I would send as many troops as needed to the borders and have real fences built while deporting every illegal that is in the country. Troops would be given the order to shoot on sight. I would also have armed drones patroling the borders. I wont keep typing, I think you get the idea.

    What they said and:

    No more free aid to other countries. I don't care if half the country dies in a flood, they will have to trade or pay back the US. How many countries have we rebuilt for nothing in return?

    There would be term limits for all.
    The Constitution would be followed to the letter.
    Mandatory military service at age 18.

    Tell that to some of the previous guys in the position. ;) But yes, call it "emperor" if it makes for a more fun discussion. Or for hard mode, describe how you would handle it if you were technically president.

    Can't argue against any of those fine ideas. Here are some more:
    1. Seal off the southern border.
    2. Deport all Illegals. If caught after 30 days, imprison on work farms for a year.
    3. End all federal unemployment and welfare after 30 days. Let states do it if they want.
    4. Prefer the feds do a flat tax. Everybody pays the same percent on all earnings from
    wages. No deductions and no exceptions.

    i would make it into a sewage plant :)



    all federal agents who have murdered US citizens(Waco, Ruby Ridge, etc.) would receive the death penalty, said penalties to be carried out within a week.

    the Firearms and Explosives divisions of BATFE would be disbanded.

    all public schools would be ordered to give age-appropriate gun safety classes, with the earliest grades learning "don't touch" and "go get an adult", then in later grades teaching their use.

    all households would be required to have a firearm, and every adult would be required to learn how to use it.

    tax breaks for homeschoolers, but homeschoolers would be required to take exams to prove that the children were actually learning the basics(reading, writing, spelling, and math).

    corporal punishment would be legal, in fact parents who refused to spank their kids for misbehaving would be spanked themselves. also, police officers would be authorized to spank unruly children.

    Federal judges would lose most of their power.

    the 1934 NFA, 1968 GCA, and all other federal, state, and local anti-gun laws would be immediately revoked, and any officer attempting to enforce them would be guilty of a felony, as well as being assumed to be committing a violent crime, and as such could be shot in self defense like any other criminal, and if they survived and escaped, would become a fugitive from justice.

    mining, oil drilling, lumbering, and all other economic activities would be allowed almost anywhere, but in as environmentally safe a manner as possible. for every tree cut down, the lumber companies would be required to plant 2 trees to replace it.

    excessive wildlife populations could be harvested in heavily populated areas, but the hunters would need to undertake rigorous gun and hunter safety training(free for those who couldn't afford the training).

    rapists and murderers would face a mandatory death sentences.

    after reading the input here, i just have to point out..in each and everyones mind, their ideas ate the cornerstones to a better civilization!...HOWEVER...if each of you had to LIVE under the others rules...well..lets just say it would get interesting real quick...for instance lets consiter one comment from a recent post..

    from HunterAlpha1.."corporal punishment would be legal, in fact parents who refused to spank their kids for misbehaving would be spanked themselves. also, police officers would be authorized to spank unruly children."

    for me, should one of you or a person i dont know to lay a hand on my child, without my personal permission??(and to get that permission..well i would spank if nessary, NOT you!) and what if you spanked too hard or too much for the "CRIME??" well lets just say ..you had better have your plot paid for, dug and ready for use. the shear volume of "LAWS" that would be required to be passed to cover such a BROAD statement would keep us all busy for a century! and thats before one child gets spanked.

    thats why my coment was what it was. while I "think" i have the answers..I am wise enough o understand what our FOUNDING FATHERS understood..NO one man howerever great he may be can have all the answers. hence in the beginning of OUR CONSTITUTION...WE THE PEOPLE it takes a great many decatated minds to try to come to grips with our socity..if anything WE THE PEOPLE ARE TO BLAME FOR OUR CURRENT STATUS..WE DROPPED THE BALL! write down on a piece of paper all the names of ALL the people you personally know..now ask this question of each and every one..did YOU vote in the last elections? include local, state and national elections..for each one answered yes give yourself a point..for each one NO..subtract 10 points. hows your score? if each and every one of us took the time to encourage just 5 more people we know to actually vote..would we be in this situtation? for your information our FOUNDING FATHERS took the time to try to get every person they knew to vote every chance they were able to.

    except for the very people we complain about here and elsewhere..no one really works to get people to vote..we allowed the scholls to be barred from teaching the importance of voting..we allowed the family unit to stop teaching the kids...oh sure I'm sure WE personally try to get our kids to vote..what about ours neighbors..you talk to them about the importance of voting? your shooting buddys?, your pastor? your hairdresser?

    you see its really is in OUR hands already to change the course here and now..WHAT are you going to do about it? I know what I am doing....i dont want to BE THE MAN..it too big a job for me..i know and understand that part..but together ..WE can DO IT! you just need to start today and WORK as hard at getting the people around you to vote as you do bringing home the "BACON" or learning to shoot that new rifle, or what ever it is you do..

    flame me or cheer me our future is in our hand and voices. it up to each of us if we are a ROAR to be noticed or just a tiny squeek to be ignored.

    Voter involvement is not the way to solve our current situation. Having 100 percent voter turnout IN A BROKEN SYSTEM still yields the same outcome when you have TWO choices that are virtually the same AND were picked by those that control the system.

    Simply abiding by the constitution and not adding the hundreds of thousands of federal laws and regulations would make the difference. But, it takes people of integrity to abide by the constitution, and when 99% of those in government have NO integrity --- this is what you get.

    I would add...... Refund all money to people who paid in to social security with interest. Deduct from refund any legal costs to the system caused by criminal conduct of any person getting a refund. After that just shut it down and tell people to save themselves. Eliminate any unearned benefit program right now. Save pensions etc as these are earned. Also give people who earned benefits the option to get a payout right now with interest on what they earned. Give the deadbeats nothing at all.

    I totally agree with you on this. Just think of the number of people in America that would vote to raise their welfare checks. The number of people that would vote to make themselves American Citizens. The number of really dumb people that know nothing about what is going on, nothing about the Constitution, or the laws that govern America, and would vote based on the way they feel! Then add in the numbers of people that are just plain un-American, and want to see an end to Capitalism!
