Let's say you had the chance to change the way the U.S.A. Does things.
What would "you" do (good or bad) that would be helpful in the change. Example: stop spending (why, how) - limited terms (why, how) and so on..
For me, personally I say make all congress members responsible and liable for thier actions by allowing them to be sued by the people. Stop allowing them to be 'above the laws'.
We need to make a petition to the voters.
I know im not a American (thank god) but hey my 2 cents (Or 2 pennys)
Reduce the USA military budget by half done by:
Withdrawing from the ME expect Isreal though only if they sign the nuclear non prolification treaty like the rest of the world and declare all there nukes and stop antagonsiing the arab states
Withdrawing from Europe (I mean we can look after ourselfs!)
Stop giving out US military money to Arab nations
Concentrate only on defending South Korea, Taiwan and Japan as those are the only allies at risk.
Try and encourage Japan to take up more military resposibilitys in its region defence.
Scrap Obama care and just expand on medicare and medicad.
Round up all the bankers and Traders responsible for the 2008 Crash and strip them of all personal assets to help pay off the debt and ban them from ever holding a position of economic and political resposibilitys.
Stop 90% of NSA dometic spying and enacting strict privacy laws and slashing its budget.
Slowly phase out the myriad diffrengt alpbet agencys either by merging them or if not doing anything just eliminating them.
Legalise certain T&C no no's and tax them like booze.
Abolish student loans for non essential University courses. While allowing more scholerships for any needed proffesions.
Enforce stricter enviromental safetly laws on fracking and high enviromental risk industrys.
Try and push through some laws to curtial the lawsuit culture.
Relax gun laws but in exchange introduce mandatorty saftey courses.

I would send in the army to get rid of the corrupt politicians.
They would all be hung on lamp posts as an example of what will happen if you slap the American people's faces like that ever again.
Corporations would be made to pay ALOT in taxes...no more freebies on the backs of the people.
Voting would be paper ballets and they would never be able to be tampered with.
A third of the golf courses would be taken away and food will be grown so NOBODY goes hungry.
Free education as well.

I would slowly move the population away from U.S. dollars and onto something like bitcoin. I would then eliminate the Federal Reserve entirely. After that transition I would begin eliminating government agencies/programs starting with the least needed and ending with major ones like foodstamps, welfare, and employer tied managed care insurance mandated by law. I would then eliminate the IRS. After that I would work with states to start eliminating their agencies etc. as well. The first to be eliminated would be to restore property ownership to 100% of the individual, meaning personal property is sovereign land to an individual. No more asset forfeiture. No more cops busting down doors of innocent civilians. Does that mean it would be a perfect system? Of course not. But it'd be a lot better than what we have.
Slowly I would work to move society toward autonomous anarchy and then eliminate myself by taking on a new identity.
