I think the best way to "fix" AmeriKKKa would be to scrap the system, and start over.
Special interest groups need to go away. I'm tired of hearing "gay rights" this and "minority rights" that, people are people no matter how gay
or not white they are, shouldn't all the people be working for equal rights if in fact all people are equal?
Secondly, the cost of college education is ridiculous, since February of 2002, the college I attend has had tuition go up 3 times, however I can't
get a bigger student loan, and none of my jobs are into the idea of an extra 50 cents an hour to help cover my tuition. Some incentive.
Third, people need to give up their "lesser of two evils" mentality when selecting a candidate to vote for. A lot of people have good ideas, but do
not carry the "republican" or "democrat" backing in the primaries and caucuses.
Fourth, alternative energy sources need to be researched and instituted.
Fifthly, churches should not be non-taxed organizations. They have income. Income tax is unconstitutional as hell, but everyone who has a job pays
it. Church should also be seperate from state, because in an ethnicly diverse society, it's borderline immoral to have a state's policies permeated
with or favoring one religion.
Sixth--Reagan, I hate to break it to ya, but your war on drugs didn't work. Everyone knows the war on drugs, Reagan had it and now you can't get
drugs anymore. I suspect the same thing is probably true about terrorism as well, after this war, there will be no more terrorists *SARCASM*. As
someone posted on the board earlier, the KKK is still alive, well, and plotting hate crimes. Some dudes in Texas got busted with a cyanide bomb and
assault rifles. Maybe we should start looking inward for terrorism rather than looking overseas.
Seventh--The "if you don't like it, leave the US" attitude has to go. The US was founded by people who simply did not like British rule. Freedom
of speech is protected, so if someone wants to speak out against the president, let them do it. It's constitutionally protected. Freedom of speech
has more to do with speaking out against the government and their policies than it ever had to do with slandering another person on the basis that you
don't like what they said. One of the redeeming features of this experiment gone bad is the ability for things to change. If a policy isn't liked,
the citizens have the right to speak out against it, contact their representatives or senators, and try to get enough support to try to change it.
Eighth--For some strange reason, I think an individual knows what's best for them better than big corporations, government agencies, or hollywood and
other media outlets do. Less emphasis should be put on things like "smoke these cigarettes, drink this coffee, wear these pants, watch this movie,
watch this tv show, watch the news here".
Ninth--Lose the PATRIOT Act. It's a piece of #. PATRIOT II shouldn't even be allowed to come to vote. Look at the board for more information
about these pieces of crap.
10--Lose the Electoral College. One voice, one vote. Direct democracy will work if people will cut the partisanship # out and vote for the candidate
that they think will perform the job best. Let the voice of the people be heard instead of the Electors doing what they think will be best.
11--Quit taxing everything!!!! Overtaxation is one of the things that led to the first AmeriKKKan revolution. You get taxed on income, taxed to
purchase, taxed when you die, it's a bit ridiculous.
12--Stop giving airtime to the Jerry Falwells and Pat Robertsons of the world. Fundamentalism begets fundamentalism, hate begets hate, and some of
the hate that these folks and other like them spew is insane.
Finally--The movement of the people, by the people, for the people worked well, for a while, but it's fairly obvious in a lot of people's eyes that
the system is broken. I say give back what has been taken, the ability to be free. I don't mean free as in "quit working, do drugs, kill people"
freedom. I mean the freedom to be an individual, to pursue your life as you wish without having the government interfere with every aspect. I
apologize for the length of this post, I didn't realize that I'd sit here and type for over a half hour on this topic.
