    Default What would you do if you was in power?

    Your the Prime Minister or President.

    What would some of your short term goals be within your country?

    Just curious to see if its all fluffy and nice.

    I am not asking for huge amounts of thought to go into this and the consequences etc.

    Just some policies.

    Suggest stricter laws for drunk driving, and for illegal drugs.
    Construct new prisons so we can fit everyone who should be in one.
    Look for good nominations for Supreme Court and lower courts.
    Increase health care spending.
    Education initiatives for math and science.
    Have a low cost victory celebration.
    Probably some other stuff.

    -Decrease government employment (such as state workers ESPECIALLY New York!)
    -Place an environmental tax on certain items which would go toward government spending on projects to help the environment
    -Tighten the Mexico/US border and create an emergency "lockdown" procedure should their be any international emergency

    -Regroup all troops stateside and rebuild our military strength to help deter N. Korea,China, Iran and other hostile nations from hindering the "peace" we have at the present time.

    Halla74's Reign Would Immediately:
    ---------------------------------
    (1) Eliminate ALL Lobbyists/Special Interest Groups from Government

    (2) Establish Term Limits on the Legislative Branches (House of Reps./Senate) similiar to those of Executive Branch

    (3) Mandate that the Judicial Branch do Something other than just Sit on their Arses and Write Opinions (They are NOT a Legitimate Check and Balance of the Other 2 Branches, IMHO)

    (4) Eliminate Preferential Outsourcing/Contracting Policies and Their Capacity to Mask true Federal Expenditures

    (5) Penalize White Collar Criminals as Severley as Felons. Kenneth Lay and Madoff Would be on a Web-Cam in the same Cell Block of a Maximum Security Penetentiary as Rapists and Child Molsesters (Both would be wearing wigs and have had breast implants)

    (6) All prisons would be mandated to utilize inmate labor for purposes of total, 100% self-sufficiency of their facility, thus eliminating the burden of tax on the common man.

    (7) The Insurance industry (Health, Auto, Property, Etc.) would be eliminated as it is now known and all lines of coverage would be consolidated into regional geographic risk pools as dictated by neutral, third party actuaries.

    (8) The pharmaceurtical industry, AMA, and FDA would be disbanded. An international medical and Rx consortium presided over by academics, social workers, medical professionals and public administrators would be the central body of US medical/Rx policy development.

    (9) I would cancel all U.S. Debt and mandate that industry and all associated capital receive favorable but fair taxation status once they returned their operations to U.S. soil and employed 80% or greater U.S. citizens.

    (10) I would eliminate political parties and mandate that candidates and citizens focus on real issues, real methods of addressing them, and not bullshit platforms that never accomplish anything.

    (11) Blue laws, raves, and all associated activities would be legalized in regional districts so as to eliminate such activities from the common populace.

    I would create a THX 1138 society where conformity, collectivism, and commerce are mandatory and love and emotion are forbidden.

    And all would be well with the world.

    Assuming this isn't some dictatorship where I'll start dissolving by legislatures, consolidating power, and oiling the guillotine.
    - Discourage lobbying and special interest groups
    - Mandate that news reporting organization do basic fact checking rather than paraphrasing the spokeperson
    - Shift from income tax to consumption tax
    - Implement carbon tax instead of cap and trade
    - Require future presidents/prime ministers to outline their campaign promises with clear, measurable, and time specific plans. The plans will be reviewed by a committee at the end of the term and the president/prime minister will be assigned a rating based on their effectiveness.
