I would follow my personal agenda because I have a problem with how the country is treating my race of people. I would make sure that I get back the power which they have lost. I would make sure to fool everyone that I indeed care about e v e r y o n e but instill programs that benefit my chosen people. I would ignore the Constitution to do this. I would do this whether or not the country ends up loosing its economic freedom, its morals, its values, it traditions, its love of life and its freedoms. Yep, thats what I would do... ! ! Not ! !
Well, first I'd slap myself just to see if I'm awake or not. Then I'd wonder how the hell I became President without an assload of money and/or a legal degree, and then I'd say "Fsck it" and nuke the Middle East once and for all. Because I totally can.
I would remove "legal" marriage stipulations. I would put minimum wage to $50.00 an hour. I would make sex illegal for all (except homosexuals) who are not making a minimum of $150,000 a year. Mistakes would be mandatorily aborted. (Jail time for breaking the law for the woman, unless she can prove she was forced. This would give lawyers plenty of work... and aid to the economy.) Corporations would be taxed 50% for the survival of all needy people.
Who is paying that kind of minimum wage? You would bring a huge mountain of unemployment to your country. I don't see that helping anyone. The money has to come from somewhere to pay out. I think you must be trying for sarcasm.
In reality I'd do more to bring jobs in for people who are unemployed and I'd support small biz, especially home businesses. How can a country succeed if it's people aren't working and earning enough to buy the stuff being sold which keeps everything going. Also, it would help if there were far less imported crap from China, India, etc. How can a country survive economically if they keep giving their money away rather than supporting their own people?
Thank you. I read up and realized it was a joke thread. It is interesting to read what people really do think. But, those threads tend to be flame wars so I avoid them. I don't know why I popped into this one. But, I did find you and interesting people are nice to find.
Hi Jaxson, that's assuming quite a lot - hard violence is not something that I'm faced with or anyone I know either. I'm not talking about drug lords etc. they will always have guns but when it comes to making guns available for everyone - they get into the wrong hands. The thought that anyone can get their hands on a semi-automatic in the US is mind boggling.
I think every adult should have a gun, and a security system, and a fire extinguisher, but i'm not going to force them to have any of the above.
What is your answer? Hope you have time to call the police, and the bad guys don't kill you while you wait 10 minutes for them to show up? Sorry, my answer is to prepare for the situation.
And no, I wouldn't have a problem with teaching children how to handle guns, or teaching them how to deal with emergency situations, or to think critically, or a number of other things that we don't teach kids.
I would gradually and then quickly, change the country into socialism. Our modern problems can be solved with equality and fairness! I would make life fair for all through equality. If some start making more money than others, there is no reason they should not share their wealth with the less fortunate! It is all a matter of luck after all. Everyone should be dealt the same deck of cards. I would make sure that happens!
Just kidding! Of course, I would turn the country over to the One World Government. It has to happen. The globe has become so small due to air transportation and the real and potential virtual realities of our computer age. No boundaries, no countries, minimum and maximum wage for every citizen of the earth@ $15.00 an hour. All will be taxed according to income and the UN will regulate the world economy through control of energy production and natural resources including mineral and precious gem mining. The microchip idea is a great Idea... everyone will have it implanted and for those who do not comply... well they would be on their own. They would become the savage outsiders... Free idea for authors or script writers: The Savage Outsiders.
On the other hand, maybe I would tell the New World Orders Guys to go Jump in a Lake. Politely, of course. I wouldn't want to piss THEM off. Cuz maybe I, as president, would care about the citizens of the country and maybe I would like to seriously figure out what would be good for them. Which of course, as we all know, is interdependence through independence and a percolating economy brought forth by economic freedom, (without all the BS!)
A recent thread mentioned giving every US citizen $1,000,000 as a possible solution to the current economic crisis. I wonder, if by some chance you were given that amount of money, would it really make your life...
