personally I think the federal government has too many laws on the books as is. there are so many laws out there, if you're following one you're breaking another..... the real question should be if you could remove 6 federal laws what would they be. for heavens sake, we don't need anymore laws, lets take some away, or revise the ones we already have.

1. Don't kill, death penalty if you do.
2. Don't steal. Toss you in jail if you do.
3. Don't harm other people or animals, toss you in jail if you do.
4. Term limits for SCOTUS, POTUS, Senate and House
5. If you're not promoting freedoms or human rights? No foreign aid.
6. Pharmaceutical companies, if it's found that you have been doing treatments and ignoring cures, then see # 2.
7. No yoga pants. Really. We don't need to see that sh#t.



Does #3 imply you want the world to go vegan then? Or only certain animals...

1. A definite "border zone" of electronic sensors, drone patrols and physical barriers.

2. Prison sentences are for "x number of days of labor." A prisoner doesn't have to work on a given day if it's her holy day, or prisoner is sick, etc. but they also don't get time off their sentence for a day not worked.

3. Doctors declare their fee schedule for the year, and it's the same price for everyone. If it's $1000 for an appendectomy, that's fine; but the doctor gets paid that regardless of whether it s insured or not.

4. Flat tax.

5. thats all I can think of

Speak for yourself.

1. Switch to a Cryptodollar.

2. Repeal the last 100 years of gun control and enforce a strict anti-gun control agenda via legislation.

3. Repeal the last 55 years of federal control of healthcare management.

4. Outlaw medical insurance.

5. Decrease funding to contractors for jobs that joes could do(speaking of military spending)

6. Increase funding for space exploration and colonization activities.

1) The Civil Defense Act Of 2018 - The largest government project for the specific purpose of protecting the population (instead of just the Government).

--- FIre up manufacturing facilities to produce transformers, 2 for every active transformer in production, which will be delivered to local stations and shielded against EMP. It is predicted that if we have another Carrington Event that 90% of the population of the US will be dead within a year. This is unacceptable for something that can be easily planned for.

----- Food Storage for the population: Stop paying farmers to not produce... pay them to produce and commit to canning LTS food which will be readily available to the population in every county storehouse. Again, another no brainer if there was a commitment to the population as a whole.

2) Fix Healthcare:
----- Posted pricing of all non-emergency tests, imaging, examinations, and procedures sparking direct advertised competition and lower prices, de-regulation of the drug monopolies, and a smack down of the AMA which has lobbied for decades to artificially limit doctors.

3) Flat Tax or a Consumption Tax with no exemptions: hint, congress gets their power and lobby donations by picking winners and losers through taxation exemptions and favorable (for them) regulations.

4) Term limits plus: What does that mean? Well, term limits are useless if one can jump from state congress, to US congress, to senate, to governor, to appointed positions. One Term Only with laws to prevent taking a lobbyist or government appointed position for at least 10 years after your term.

Sorry, have to go to bed soon so i will go with the Top 4 with my first being off the scale in importance as it is truly life or death for most of the population.

1) TERM LIMITS ACROSS THE BOARD.
2) Mandatory drug testing every 90 days for all government employees including all elected officials.
3) Any federal laws or Powers not expressly enumerated in the Constitution must be immediately eliminated unless they want to make an amendment for it to specifically give it to Federal. No more just grabbing power for the sake of grabbing power.
4) All panhandlers must have a license that proves that they actually are in need. If they don't have a proven need, they need to get a freaking job instead. If they can stand on a freeway overpass all day, then they can cashier somewhere.
5) Repeal the 14th Amendment, the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and put the currency back on some sort of standard.
6) All social justice warriors must immediately be deported to Venezuela. (Just kidding on this one! We actually need them to stick around for entertainment.)

1) Limited and fully publicly funded elections at all levels of government.

My #5

Two years of mandatory service.

-use an aptitude test. Top 10% can choose between services: military, medical, or police auxiliaries. Next 20% below them are the equivalent of interns in those branches. Everybody else goes into the construction corps building roads & bridges.

Medical is basically free EMT training, with 2 years of labor for the state.

Police auxilliary get different color uniforms, no guns, but a pair of handcuffs. They can assist with crowd control, writing traffic tickets, making welfare checks on the elderly etc. basically the cops behave better when there are more witnesses. And youth would gain respect/empathy for the police by learning that job.

I'll bite...

1. No person may run for a US Congressional office who has had an income exceeding $200,000 more than 3 years out of the previous six, or who has taken government assistance for more than 3 years out of the previous 6. (Automatic term limits)

2. Fix health care once and for all.

3. Free 2-year college (Associates) for all high school seniors who score in the top 25% of their class. Free 4-year college (Bachelors) for those who score in the top 15%. Free 6-year college (Masters) for those who score in the top 8%. Free 8-year college (Doctorate) for those in the top 3%. Requires US citizenship, enrollment in an approved major, and continued acceptable performance (3.0 GPA or higher), plus an agreement to work in the US for the first 10 years.

4. 10 years in a Federal penitentiary for anyone falsely accusing another person of being racist, homophobic, or misogynistic.

5. Mandatory firearm education for anyone over 18 years of age, free of course.

6. Remove all political contributions from Federal income tax forms, and give a $10 tax credit plus a $10 tax deduction for every hour a taxpayer spends filing Federal income tax (includes preparing and participating in audits and researching IRS regulations).

Farm subsidies fall under a few beneficial categories. Green spaces for wild life preservation, fallow fields for renutrientization of the soil and crop rotations, and to regulate crop price deflation by balencing varietations of bumper crop and lean yields (who would produce what it pays less to the yield than the cost to plant?) And then there is also government backed crop insurance in there as well.

Farmers can be a nasty bunch that destroy some of their yields in order to maintain profits. Early 20th century milk dumpings over a drop in price of milk come to mind. But sometimes grain is left in storage until later or they will gamble on early plantings in order get early harvest prices when demand is highest.

You can experience it small scale putting out a garden and watch as it melts under three weeks of heatwave and realize that you are buying veggies at the store this year or doing without.

Better management of farm subsidies is a better suggestion.

Not sure how many of these could count as federal laws:

1. Term Limits for all elected officials
2. Get rid of all unions - antiquated and not necessary
3. Flat Tax
4. Re-align federal pay scales - raises for teachers, police, fire, etc. Lower pay for most all other govt positions in Washington
5. Eliminate any gun laws inconsistent with the Constitution. Same laws apply to all states, cities, etc.
6. healthcare plans the same in all states, offered across state lines

OK. Serious educational reform. It would take about a decade to do it right. Start now.
