Because I would clean house the moment I walked in the door. I would go through every single department within the executive branch, eliminate anything that is unnecessary and wasteful, consolidate anything that is needed so no monies get wasted on duplicate programs.
Because I would eliminate any Executive Order that legislated through the executive branch, that created agencies unprescribed by Congress, and grabbed authority from any other branch not granted to it under Constitutional rule.
Because I would advocate for the reformation of the tax code into a flat tax for three areas: personal, business, and import/export. I would discuss my want to see it set between 10-15% for each, with a very high threshold necessary to raise them as all are tied together at the same point, to ensure no sector of the economy is unfairly and unequally taxed.
Because I would offer a plan to reform Social Security so those who pay into it now will have it there when they arrive at retirement under their own power, while those who currently are apart of the system will have their benefits available to them unimpeded. A reformation that calls for tiered set-ups for a decending/ascending percentage of contribution for all to allow for a transition to occur in 50 years that would allow for complete private ownership of their retirement.
Because I would tell the truth about our government's activities: I would declassify and release all documents previous 1950, unredacted and uncensored to the general public for my first term, 1950-2013 in my second. The greatest level of honesty generates transparency, and it happens through actions, not words uttered from a teleprompter.
Because I would prosecute all criminals under current statutes for criminal acts, conflicts of interests, and war crimes that are still the within government, or have retired from it.
And this is just the beginning.
That's why I can't be President.
I'd do the job the way it should be done, as a concerned citizen.
Not as a pig at the taxpayer funded trough.
