Many threads are made about what is wrong with the way the US of A does things internally, few are made about what normal people would do. Let's say you were the President, and had the full support of the House, Senate, and the supreme Court? As in anything you suggest gets passed What would you do to to make sweeping changes? Me? I would cut the military by at least 60%, via closing overseas bases, reducing troop numbers, and scrapping any hardware we don't need. No more boneyards of ships and planes we don't need. No more bid free contracts, no more stockpiling weapons we'll never use. I would also form a separate unit to Audit the military ti keep costs under control. Even with a 50% cut, the US would still be a huge military giant, easily capable of defending itself and its allies without any issues. I would also end all the insane amount of pocking lining that goes on in the military. This whole " spend more on fuel or ammo so we get more next year " is gone. I would end all free trade agreements the US of A has, and increase tariffs, while offering Tax breaks to business that do not outsource, and tax increases to those that try to move jobs out. Clearly the " Free market " has failed at protecting the American worker, time to step in and protect them. I would get the goverment out of the scam that is the student loan business ( The Government pays more in interest to the banksters than just straight up paying tuition at state owned universities ), and just straight up pay for people to go to state owned Vocational schools, community colleges and University . It would actually cost us less money in the long run then the interest free Fed loans. And students would not have crippling debt. This money would stay out of private school coffers as well. If people want to go to those schools, they can take a loan from a bank or pay in cash. I would end Obamacare, and offer a single payer healthcare system that first world countries have, and allow the private providers to keep functioning if people want to pay it out of pocket. I would increase funding to education on the K-12 level, and reform the school system, to cater to the needs of every child, and not just throw cookie cutter crap tests on everything. I would also start a MASSIVE overhaul of America's Highways, bridges, rural roads, water and sewage systems, power grids, power plants, drainage systems, irrigation systems, air ports, seaports, and Aircraft tracking systems. We need it, badly. I would also invest in a high speed rail system on the east and west coast, where it makes sense. Also, Privately funded Elections? Gone. K street? Gone. Lobbyists? Gone. Also, I would increase grants to car or train or airplane companies that develop better and more efficient cars. You might not think that as I am a huge car guy, but my 470 Horsepower Grand Sport Corvette is also gets 29mpg highway and is super clean on emissions. I also plan to buy a Tesla. I would also massively increase NASA funding. Id dump a ton of grants and funding into the International Fusion project and the next generation of Nuclear Reactors. Mars Mission, NASA has straight up said its been possible for almost 10 years now...instead of giving corporate handouts, and I do mean handouts, the right complains about handouts to the working poor and students and disabled and people who need help, while at the same time big business stands with its hands out demanding tax payer money, that is gone. Give that money to the poor, and give it to NASA to restore American pride. No more handouts for Mega Corps. What would you do?
