Feel free to post your own, "If I were runnin for president".

If I were running for president I would nationalize all earth based resources and take the profits and reinvest them into education and infrastructure.

If I were president I would tax the ultra wealthy and Wall Street and make healthcare and mental healthcare free for everyone.

If I were president I would end the drug war and use the added tax revenue to build the worlds best mental healthcare system and programs for the perpetually homeless.

If I were president I would change the primary education system to focus more on life skills such as the ability to socialize, understand tax code, developing entrepreneurial skills, and how to invest.

If I were president I would take the money out of politics and publically fund all campaigns.

If I were president I would make the district attorney's office a non elected position.

If I were president I invest heavily into the space program and launch a national campaign to get as many people into space as possible.

That's what I would do people!

And you would pay for all of this how?

The devil is always in the details.

What would be your alternative?



@Metallicus

I assume from the ultra rich tax, the resources and legalisation of drug taxes.

Well. Hmmmm. I would need an administration and people who are experts in local politics to aid me in the process of problem solving that one.

The idea is to get the DAs office Out of politics and into just doing what's right for the job. It'll help put space between them and the police unions as wellz

I agree, I just wondered really.

Maybe a referendum would be a better choice than politically elected.


Let the population decide.

The problem I see here is that most of America is not politically motivated right now and that by leaving it to the public as are really leaving it to the lobbyist.

It's actually in the publics best interest right now to have an out of control cowboy president. It's the American way anyway.

If I were President I'd tried to inform the American Population how government works and that it's not there to solve all of their problems. I would than shrink the government drastically to how it was intended in the Constitution.

Destroy the IRS and get rid of the Income Tax, institute an across the board fair tax with zero tax on basic necessities such as egg, bread, water, etc.

I'd than encourage private entrepreneurs to create solutions to the problems facing society which they previously asked the government to fix, I'd do this with tax incentives.

I'd than get myself impeached because I acted unilaterally with power not allocated to me in the constitution.

If I were President:

I would refuse to sign any budget that came across my desk that did not cut 10% off the top of every single Federal Agency and Department and expenditure. I don't care how the managers deal with the cuts in their budget process, but the cuts WILL happen, every year until we run a balanced budget.

Every single Federal Dept. Head of every single agency and committee MUST come to DC and justify the constitutional existence of his or her department/committee every year to a seated majority of both the House and Senate at budget time. (If this doesn't motivate them to trim some dead weight, nothing will.)

Severely limit and/or do away with public employees' unions. Investigate the possibility of going after other large unions under anti-monopoly laws. I don't want to destroy unions, but I do think the very large ones should be busted up back down to local levels. There are some near monopolies in some industries that negatively impact business.

Investigate ways to improve education first by weakening the control of the Dept. of Ed. Maybe abolish that sucker altogether except for a small dept. under a Sec. of Ed.

If I were running for president I would legally change my last name to Bush and walk into office....Seems that's all that matters in the USA....

No wonder the ultra rich need a private military.

How would somebody stop that?

If I were elected President the first thing I would do would be to hold simultaneous surprise audits on the Federal Reserve and Fort Knox. While that's going on, I would declare any and all current wars to be over and an end to any state of martial law. The US Constitution would be in full effect throughout the US. I would redeploy our armed forces away from bases overseas to patrolling our borders and coastlines. There is no reason our borders can't be as well protected as Area 51.

I would have the Attorney General pursue a breech of contract lawsuit against the Federal Reserve Bank, with a cease and desist order against the enforcement of that contract while the lawsuit is pending.

I would not approve any budget that included any foreign aid to any country.

1. US Financial System

Eliminate private banking, Fed, IRS.

But the ATS reason to Elect Me is FULL DISCLOSURE!!!

Area 51, I want a camera crew to film everything, we can cover high level military secrets, but no room should be off limits to it's elected leader.

A FOIA on everything. Full Disclosure of everything our intelligence has gathered. And full disclosure of our spying and recording the world.

There will be no more secrets in a government OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE! Only an informed populace can meet this criteria and we can never become uniformed again.

I tried to start the common sense party but instead I started the common sence party. www.abovetopsecret.com...
I am a poor speller, when I get elected president I will employ the ATS member who offered his services to me in the common sense thread.

Since every underdog needs a theme song, a playlist for the revolution.
