I would like to get a consensus on this topic, and hopefully it can better help us understand where we all differ, and where we all relate. And maybe in someway, we can start to lay the groundwork for healthy conversations. Let's start off easy, what are 10 changes YOU would make to the country. Don't worry about what is possible, or what isn't. I think it's better if we we say what we are actually feeling, it will tell us a lot. Wether it's infrastructure, research, power, social issues, and even government re-structuring and international affairs. What would be your ideal America.

Try to keep name of your political ideology hidden on your post, so others can see the lists more objectively.

Take the teeth out of the propaganda machine, er MSM. Bring back The Fairness Doctrine. Yeah, I know that's coming close to a 1st amendment no-no.

That one should cover damn near every other issue.

I'd make it like star trek where we abolish currency as we just work to benefit ourselves and the society. Everyone gets food, shelter, prospects.

But ten things to improve a broken system?

1. Reduce tax for the modest working class and the poor
2. Increase tax for the rich and corporate giants.
3. Use money from the tax gains to fund special programs such as charities, education and helping the vunerable
4. Reduce student loans by 75% using money from the royal estate
5. Reduce military budget
6. Use gains from military budget to fund new homes for first time buyers, and to increase funding for counterterrorism
7. Work to reduce the housing bubble in the main city, and to make it easier to own a home
8. Find way to pull in more money to fund disability schemes and to help the elderley
9. Stop meddling with other countries, drastically reduce military presence in foreign land
10. Clamp down on bias media reporting for major new outlets

Well since the President can't change anything without Congress, this is more akin to acting like a dictator.

I'd like to see more changes like the above posters, but a lone POTUS can't enact them at all.

Would be great to see term limits, abolished IRS and FED, and lobbying made illegal.

Good luck though!

Forgetting about the Ferengi and their gold pressed latinum, and endless war and imperial expansionism by the federation.

In that little story.

The Ferengi were the capitalists.

The Federation were the socialist's ( the supposed good guys)

The borg were the commies.

And EVERYONE hung out as far from Earth as they could possibly get.

And you had to travel way out near Bajor just to get a Dabo girl; otherwise, you'd end up with miss goody two shoes, and who wants that? Not even Jean Luc!
