    If I were president ( king, monarch )

    My wife & I were discussing some of the changes that we would like to see made:
    If I had the authority to do so, I would:

    1) eliminate welfare ( substituting a program for ONLY the truley disabled )
    2) double ( at least ), the amount a person recieves from SS
    & make the retirement age at 62 with paid hospitalization
    3) Automatic death penalty for first degree crimes of violence...period
    Automatic death penalty for 2nd degree crimes of violence - on 2nd
    offense.
    Automatic death penalty for crimes of theft, assault, etc - on 3rd offense
    No longer would juries have to be unanimous - 10 of 12 would suffice
    4) No governmental funding for private organizations...period
    5) Allow a person to defend his property & loved ones...
    6) Political elections would consist of televised ( &/or radio ) debates..period
    NO billboards, posters, or TV / radio commercials
    7) Reduce government ( & governmental control ) by, at least, 20%
    8) Keep our money in this country, unless for disaster relief...
    9) Reduce income taxes by 15%
    10) Institute a program to reduce the population, by limiting childbirths...
    11) Put religion, & discipline back into the schools

    Ok I gave mine, now what would ya'll add, or what changes would you make????

    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    I agree, except for those claiming besides "disabled", having to work publically(municipals) until work is found. Checks are based on initial filing, no increases for added family members, period.




    2) double ( at least ), the amount a person recieves from SS
    & make the retirement age at 62 with paid hospitalization

    No, as this would encourage laziness, and "floating by" to get to SS age.


    3) Automatic death penalty for first degree crimes of violence...period

    While i agree on the principle, a falsely accused is dead instantly.



    Automatic death penalty for 2nd degree crimes of violence - on 2nd
    offense.
    O.K.


    Automatic death penalty for crimes of theft, assault, etc - on 3rd offense
    No longer would juries have to be unanimous - 10 of 12 would suffice


    life in prison is more in line to me ....no release/parole.







    4) No governmental funding for private organizations...period

    Agree.


    5) Allow a person to defend his property & loved ones...

    Agree.




    6) Political elections would consist of televised ( &/or radio ) debates..period
    NO billboards, posters, or TV / radio commercials

    No, they can advertise any way they see fit IMO.




    7) Reduce government ( & governmental control ) by, at least, 20%

    O.K.

    8) Keep our money in this country, unless for disaster relief...

    Yes.






    9) Reduce income taxes by 15%

    Have to see what $$$ is needed first, hard to say just reduce by x amount.




    10) Institute a program to reduce the population, by limiting childbirths...

    No. I would limit aid to families that expand beyond their means, and offer free gov't birth control.


    11) Put religion, & discipline back into the schools

    No. Discipline yes, religion no. Too many different religions in our melting pot.

    If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.
