If you were told you could be President for a day, what would be the first thing you would do?
Firsts things first, and all, i'd change the farm bill to make a drastic if not complete cut of the federal subsidies for corn with slightly less drastic cuts for cotton. Then i'd allocate the monies freed from that, along with some of the billions and billions of tax dollars freed by ending failed 'war on drugs' to fund subsidies for farmers and SBA and large note loans for business interested in developing a domestic hemp industry.
The harder part will be deciding how to enjoy the prosperity after a global hemp industrial revolution blossoms...
Bring the troops home on every front: the middle-East, Africa and the drug war.
Well, if non US citizens were allowed to become President I would abolish the Federal Reserve, wipe out the imaginary paper debt and tell the private Fed to go....itself!
Throw all of Congress in jail. Abolish all Federal laws back to the Constitution & allow the States to set their own destiny. As was the origional intent.
president of what? i'm the president of my company and i'm good at it.

Congress should get rid of oil subsidies. Not only should we get rid of oil subsidies, we should tax it more. Let's all write to our senators and congressmen to get rid of oil subsidies and tax oil more and subsidize alternate fuels.
