1. Shrink it in size by at least 70%
2. Spending cannot exceed income
3. Social programs turned over entirely to the states
4. No subsidies for anything...if something is worth investing in let the investors do it.
5. Impropriety by federal politicians (congressman, senators, president)....severe imprisonment terms.
6. NO pork in bills, if the feds are gonna build a two lane bridge on a pig ranch somewhere then put it to a vote, don't bury it.
7. Qualification to run for president: Must have at least 15 years in private sector business, no career politicians, but real world American
8. Qualification to run for president: Birth Certificate made public at time of announcement...because I don't ever want to see all the stupid
bickering about this again...
9. NO sin taxes...if a product is legal then it is legal....it taxes same as any other product...i.e. beer, cigarettes, gas guzzling cars, etc.
10. Primary elections for president to be held nationwide on the same day, just like the general election. I'm tired of four or five tiny states
having the power to knock out good viable candidates.
11. If decided we need to go to war, then a plan submitted to win it, get it done, and get the hell out and damn the collateral damage. If it's
serious enough to go to war, then it is serious enough to bomb hell outta the country in question. i.e. Afganistan and Iraq not serious enough in my
opinion, if a serious threat to our sovergnty existed then the country causing that serious threat no longer physically exists. Not serious enough to
warrant such drastic action? Then we don't send aid, we embargo, and we talk nasty on the news and keep out taxes out of defense contractors, etc.
.....MY foriegn policy in a nutshell.
12. If you can work, you ain't physically or mentally handicapped, then you will work if you want to eat. You get a job. Private or public sector.
Unemployment, Welfare, ? If you can work then you will work in some way or you get nothing. No more free rides on the tax payers dime. If my taxes
gotta pay you because you're hooked on the pot pipe and can't get a job, then you will get off the pot pipe and come help build a road, clean a
courthouse bathroom, or mow some public grass and pass a friggin drug screen or eat out of dumpsters and live in a box in an alley...your choice...I
have to keep my nose clean to make a living for my family...so can everyone else.
I am sure there is more I would change but I guess the above will do for now.....so who's gonna vote for me...lol?
