I would establish a Constitutional Monarchy mixed with Direct Democracy. I would establish myself as King within Constitutional bounds, although I
would extend my power into enforcing certain political ideals without overriding the democratic system, i.e. I would only give my opinion and
occasionally veto legislation, but would not be allowed to pick any seats or appoint the Prime Minister.
I would streamline all laws, cutting out the fat and leaving only the bare minimum of laws for the country. People would be free to do as they wish so
long as they do not harm others or own dangerous material (guns, bad drugs). I would not abolish religion, but all religion is public life would
become forbidden. The only places you can even talk about religion is in private places (homes, churches). And no law shall ever be permitted to be
influenced by religious beliefs. I would make it strictly illegal to spy on citizens for any reason except in the case of a warrant.
On the economic front I would develop a system similar to Socialism, but not Socialism. It would recognize the shared cooperation of business and
government. All corporations would be immediately turned over to the workers, but not made public. They would become democracies with the workers and
share holders having equal say and equal right to the capital produced by the corporation and by themselves. All people working for government would
be required to join a Union to protect their interest from the change of power, thus not permitting the following administration from breaking
Small business and entrepreneurship will be pushed as the ideology of the society, with very minimal government involvement in the affairs of small
business. The government would seize all banks and would begin a system of social credit, where the banks will lend to people that would otherwise not
be able to obtain a loan.
Government would seize all apartment housing and make it subsidized (very cheap). Government would also direct building projects, environmental
projects, construction projects and the energy projects (without private say in the matter). All citizens would be required to work, if you are
unemployed you will either go to college (for free) or you will volunteer for the government until you or the government finds you a job. All
schooling will become public and free, from pre-k to college including daycare. The government will force all doctors into private practice while
nationalizing all hospitals. Government will create a refund system for health expenditures covering 75% of costs, while you are free to either pay
the other 25% or purchase private non-profit insurance.
The country will only join the United Nations. We shall be officially neutral and act as a mediator for world peace, we can speak out in favor of
certain things (like Palestinian state, or anti-Iraq war) but would not be allowed to join anyone militarily. A standing military will be abolished,
but all high school students would be required to take and pass military training (instead of physical education).
Government will also nationalize all mass transit. Agriculture will be strongly encouraged and there would be incentives for people to leave the
cities and move to rural areas and purchase farming land. Individuals will only be permitted to a certain maximum amount of land so as to not create a
monopoly over the land.
