Problem One - Education - I agree that the education system needs to be fixed, but oddly I know that it does not need more money. (Even though I'm a righty) I do NOT like Bush myself, but he did give 4 billion additional dollars to education that was NOT needed.
The problem here is this. The money that goes to schools is a direct reflection of the personal property taxes collected. SO, poor areas get poor
Is that Bull? You better believe it. Uniformity is something that is lacking in our current education system. I'm sorry, but every kids deserves
the same level of education.
Problem 2 - Foreign Aid - I am tired of SO much money going out of this country that I WORKED HARD TO EARN. Am I against helping people? NO. There
needs to be a bigger incentive for private industry to foot the bill with tax writeoffs etc. I am positive that a profit minded company (most at
least) would want to be sure of what they were spending their money on, unlike the federal government, who seems to just give generously in a global
Western Union transaction.
Problem 3 - Foreign policy - STOP MESSING AROUND WITH OTHER PEOPLES BUSINESS, unless asked nicely, and prove to be a worth while task. It took the
U.S. quite a while to get into WWII, and there were Nazis in power. Why are we so quick to start a third one?
The simple fact is, is that we almost are totally at fault for terrorist activity. We effectively aimed the sights of angry folks world wide on us by
interfering with business we had no right to be in (i.e. Isreal...god when will learn from that alone).
Problem 4 - Big Business - I read something about this above and agree whole heartedly. Big business is important in this country because they have
the JOBS. I keep hearing all the left wing folks compain about Big Business this and that, but they need governmental help (tax and legislative wise)
to be profitable thus maintaining the jobs the tax payers hold.
What I'd do, is make campaign ads free for all media, period. That way, the money given to each candidate would be enough to run even for the
presidency (although they might have to raise the amount a bit). I am sick of people giving huge funds (business, etc) to political parties and
candidates. It severely underminds the possibility for objective agendas.
Problem 5 - Immigration - Immigrents are great. They add a diversity to our country who has forever counted on innovation of thinking to succeed.
BUT, there needs to be a bit of a lockdown and organization. Maybe a modernday Ellis Island (without the name problems (hehehe).
All current illegals should be given a grace period to come forward and obtain legal status (with some conditions of course), that way we would have A
There are a ton more, but these are the big ones to me.
