Me in charge of the USA
1. stop all foreign aid immediately. not one penny goes overseas.
2. change EPA laws on gasoline restrictions. all refineries would make one type of gasoline for the entire country.
2.5 open all areas in the US to drilling, (yes Anwar and Florida/California waters)
3. immediately begin repatriation of ALL illegals in the country.
4. implement the flat tax across the board and dismantle the IRA
5. recall all national guard soldiers to their respective states and re-deploy them to guard our borders.
6. finish "the wall" across California, Arizona and Texas.
7. force all American companies in Mexico to pay their employees the same wages their counterparts get paid in the U.S.
8. implement drug screening to those applying for food stamps and welfare.
this would be just a start....
I would add this.
Make all foreign workers living and working in the country to pay more in taxes.
Also foreign land owners would pay double property taxes.
All state owned tax payer supported,colleges/university's would be required to recruit only from their respective states for scholarships.
No foreign student would be allowed to enroll in any pubic taxpayer funded school until every American student qualified to attend has been enrolled.
All amateur athletes attending a university/college military academy on a tax payer supported scholarship who drops out to go pro would be required to pay back his entire scholarship,out of his first year salary.
All students that use government funded student loans would be required to perform public service in some manner respective to their skill.
All Military Academy appointees would come out of enlisted military applicants.
All potential officers would have to serve a period of time at least 1 year as a enlisted.No more high school to academy to officer.
They would have less drop outs ,more career officers, better leaders and less issues that the academy's are experiencing now.
All public assistance,welfare recipients would be required to perform some type public service monthly. Nothing is free anymore.
Eliminate professional public elected servants.No more
Change Congressmen terms to 4 years vice 2 as is now.
Term limits strictly enforce,no retirement no federal benefits.
States may determine benefits as vote by the legislature.
Eliminate PAC's,lobbying,special interest groups.
Give Puerto Rico,Northern Marianas Islands,Guam and Samoa their independence.No more Welfare territory's.
Imminent domain ALL civilian owned property determined non essential in D.C. and make it just a federal business zone.
No residents of the federal zone can be on welfare.
It is a shame that a part of our capital and federal zone is a crime ridden slum.
I don't believe that was the founding fathers intention.
Remove the civilians make it all federal property and have a government appointed city manager under the authority of the Department of the Interior.
Any commercial enterprises,would be allowed long term leases for their land.
Expedite death penalty judicial revues and have public executions for all who want to witness.
WE as a society should be allowed to view this punishment.
It was a good deterrent in the old days.
Allow all law abiding citizens 18 or older to carry unconcealed weapons in holsters.
Any convicted felon caught with a weapon in their possession would incur mandatory life sentence with out parole.If they commit a crime with a weapon it would be a mandatory death sentence.
No more insanity/retard defenses.You do the crime you do the time.
All elections from campaigning to nomination to voting will only be a one month period.
Close all overseas military bases and return all forces to the states.triple the size of the Marines eliminate the fighter component of the Air Force and give that responsibility to the Navy/Marines.
Build modern versions of the B-52.Exact copy's of that platform with modern technology in the air frame,etc. Don't reinvent the wheel,just improve upon it.
