    If you had the chance to be the political leader of your country, would you take the opportunity?

    Out of the question. I value my friends, reputation, and integrity too highly to throw them all away like that.

    I definitely would, responsibilities don't scare me, nor the stress. I am a person of people and of action. I love changes and if it had to happen I would destitute both chambers, would suppress the lobby influence, would impose radical reforms economically and socially, would legislate on new laws... Then I guess, I would be assassinated!

      You wouldn't have got so far. They'd have done away with you from the lobby suppression.

    It depends upon the values you have possessed for getting a recognition among the people.

    Definitely not.

    If I were, for instance, to become president of the United States, I would be setting myself up for assassination -- easily!

    The Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Warburgs and their ilk don't want anyone messing with their plans for world domination. And they're almost done as it is, now, anyway.

    They already have the European Union, effectively the African Union, and behind the scenes we have a defacto North American Union, with economists already talking about the new Amero to replace the Peso, American Dollar and Canadian Dollar.

    The way Bush and then Obama have run the American economy into the ground, it's only a matter of time before the $16+ Trillion national debt bubble pops. The chaos that follows will be perfect for them to reform America into their debt slave.

    As president, I would ruin their plans (while I was still alive).

    I would pull all of the troops back to American soil. I would strengthen the military from their new (old?) mission of defensive posture, instead of aggressive wars of corporate greed.

    I would eliminate all executive orders that involve erosions of the Constitution -- and many of Obama's nearly 1000 E.O.s fit into that category. He's written more than all the other presidents combined, and then some. I would push for a restoration of the Constitution and the repeal of all legislation that goes counter to it. I would get on the Supreme Court's case about declaring things Constitutional that aren't.

    I would push for campaign reform so that Corporations can never again be the influence they are. I would push for an end of the practice of corporate lobbying.

    I would push for the elimination of numerous branches of the government that go beyond the intent of the Constitution.

    I would push to have the private Rockefeller-Rothschild Federal Bank ended (closed forever). I would restore the control of America's currency to the Treasury. I would eliminate income tax.

    Somewhere in all of this, I would meet with resistance from the Power Elite, the military industrial complex, big oil (losing all those lucrative oil fields in the Middle East).

    Frankly, I'd give myself 2-3 weeks at most. And if the vice president was cut from the same cloth, he might not last much longer.

    I saw a video last week that has some good ideas, but may also be a bit naive. It's worth a look.

      Your comment is well informed and clearly articulated. I lean towards the naive side, always ready to take another look at idealist visions (with a half-grin of cynical optimism) - so visited the link. It is worth viewing. Thanks!

    Nope; I'd rather be rich and just buy one.

    In comment to LoneStars answer, " saw a video last week that has some good ideas, but may also be a bit naive. It's worth a look...."

    I viewed a few minutes of the trailer and thought it looked good, then saw the movie with my partner last night. In a nutshell, it says that the suffering of the world is due to the high cost and inaccessibility of energy, which is caused by a monopoly of the Rockefellers, Rothchilds, et al.

    And that the solution is to draw free energy for all from the ethers. The spokesperson for The Thrive Movement is Foster Gamble, and he comes across as sincere and adds credibility.

    However, he interviewed people like Nassim, whom we saw in an auditorium on Hawaii a few years ago and dismissed as someone with little credibility. He is a performer. And David Icke, who wrote that the Queen of England is a reptile who eats people. I cannot say for certain it is not true. What I can point out is that putting emphasis on the controllers and what they do only provokes fear and anger in people. And neither advanced technology nor politics of any kind will ever provide a lasting solution to the world's problems. They may make short-term fast fixes at best.

    Real change will come about, as I see it, only when individuals shed their old fixed ideas and habit patterns and fulfill their potential as self-empowered, self-contained beings knowing who and what they really are and knowing their place in the universe. With this self-awareness comes greater self-responsibility, and then the world will change.
