Hi Boondock Saint, As promised, I added my post to this thread as well. I read both titles, and I clicked on the other thread. I didn't want to
read another thread about the upcoming revolution and speculation and posturing and tough talk. Now that you linked to yours, and I read your OP, I
see that it is a pretty good discussion. I'll post in both!
I'm POTUS tonight, first thing tomorrow:
1. Demand a review of all "mandatory sentencing" crimes. I would start getting people out of prisons if they are not a danger to society. Prisons
should only be used to protect society, not to provide a "punishment" mechanism.
2. Begin a thorough audit of the current budgeted items and other expense pay outs of the Federal Government. Bring in help from successful private
industries that have turned around bad business plans. Appoint a team to give the fine-tooth comb to each Federal Agency and start cutting expenses
3. Propose a constitutional amendment explicitly outlawing certain taxes, such as property tax, estate tax, etc. In a "free" country, we should have
clear property rights and inheritance rights, and we should not have to fear losing those things we worked our whole life to attain!
4. Seek an audience at the UN, and a WorldWide press conference. I would declare the US undying commitment to bringing "inalienable rights" to all
the residents of the world. I would extend all the protection of our Constitution to our foreign combatants and prisoners of war. I would guarantee
human rights to all people impacted directly or indirectly by the actions of the US, and I would guarantee that if we are going to use our military
might on High Moral ground, then we would also extend that morality to all of our actions.********In the same speech, I would declare (much like the
Romans) that crimes against the US or its citizens in any part of the world, would be met with overwhelming retaliation! We would do away with
"Proportional Response" and go with "Bring The Pain-Retribution" if we are attacked in any way whatsoever!! We vow to use our military might and
high moral ground for the good of the world, but do not try us! Do not poke and prod the gentle bear!
I'll add more later.
