    Kill all the lawyers... who can argue with Shakespeare?

    This is a great question... the biggest problem is nationalism and corrupt politicians. This will never be solved unless we all start living by the words of John Lennon in Imagine...

    For starters I think we need to do the following:

    1) Establish a viable state for the Palestinians with full access to their holy sites in Jeruseleam
    2) Make peace with Iran and North Korea
    3) The United States must stop playing favorites on the international scene (i.e. unconditional love for Israel; ignoring human rights abuses in China while scolding others)
    4) A shift to renewable energy sources so the power that is vested in the countries of OPEC are somewhat diluted.
    5) A universal adherence to International law and the Geneva Convention
    6) Uniform standards for the treatement of workers (wages, safety etc) around the globe so manufacturing opportunities wil exist for all countries

    Some of these things I say are merely declarations and may be naive but we must solve the hot spots so we can move forward. The United States in particular must regain the image of morality so the man on the street in the Islamic countries cannot so easily be swayed by the bin laden's of the world. We must have clear missions and be uniform in our objections.

    With regard to the economic crisis in the USA, we have to deal with those factors which are within our control.  Here are some items to address:

    1. First and foremost, quite spending like drunken sailors on a weekend pass.

    2. Down-size government and get it out of the lives of business and the people to the greatest extent reasonable.

    3. Get rid of ObamaCare.

    4. Establish a reasonable flat tax rate across the board.

    5. Establish government budgets and live within them.

    6. Let the private sector drive the economy and lose the idea that government is responsible for creating jobs.

    7.  Set terms limits on elected offices.

    8  Do away with earmark and pork-barreling spending.

    9. Stop the government's insistence on being the social conscious of America...leave that to the people and the churches.

    10. Secure our borders and deal effectively with those who break the law to cross them.

    Thanks. WB
