If You Were The President Of The USA?

Okay, so if you were the president of the united states what would you do to help improve America, the economy, and the people of this country?

Give more money to the space program. Solves all of the above.

Try to open up new business relations with as many countries as possible. Also I would try to get as much infrastructure building in the US as congress would allow including roads, bridges, alternative energy soyrces, and better internet.

One thing I would do for myself as president (and consequently the people) would be to increase my own internal administration. Bush once said that ultimately he's the decider, and frankly that is far too true. We need more deciders, people who are experts in their field who don't require the approval of one person at the top that logically can't be and isn't an expert in every field. It would remove some of the weight of the presidency that is famous for taking years off a person's life and allow for a greater amount of good to great decisions to be made while minimizing the bad to mediocre decisions that all too often get made by one man. A man who logically cannot be an expert in all things.

If I were President of the United States of America I would have a foul taste in my mouth because my tongue would be all the way up Benjamin Netanyahu's asshole.

I would give full disclosure for all things ufo/alien related and make sure the technology we've developed using their help was made public for the good of mankind.

The people of earth have a right to know.

@BlackGenjii:

1. Have Bilderberg members arrested for treason

2. Media owners are forced to sell their media outlets making a law saying no one person is allowed to own more than 2 media outlets

3. Make GMO illegal and withdraw it from the food chain

4. Arrest Big Pharma who have been in bed with the FDA

5. Close the borders

6. And generally re-install the constitution

You forgot

7. Mandate the watching of conspiracy YouTube videos by everyone for at least 1hr a day.

8. Make infowars.com the start up page for all web browsers

Also, LMAO at the conspiracy nut job that admits he would violate personal and property rights given the chance. Dat irony.

Thank you sheep:)

If I were the president, I'm pretty sure I would've been assassinated within a year.

I would make sure everyone who works pay a percentage in healthcare, & make it free for everyone. Well the necessary operations anyhow. Also definitely add some female security guards. A couple of hottie interns too !

As far as improving the economy goes, I would:

1. Repeal the Obama Administration's HHS mandate

2. Reduce the corporate tax rate so that corporations can bring more of their money here instead of having it overseas in countries with lower tax rates.

3. Authorize the Keystone Pipeline. It would probably be short-term, but it would help some people out.

4. Narrow down federal anti-discrimination laws.

I will repeat, "not ask what country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country".

#20 Edited by Ballroompirate (23052 posts) -

Legalize marijuana and tax this shit out of it

Raise minimum wage across the board

Increase jobs here and not over seas

After I save this country, I'll probably get caught having an affair with my secretary or mistress

LOL!!! Good one bro.

I'd quit right away, I don't need the attention and stress for the good of the land, everyone can go fuck themselves.

#23 Posted by SOedipus (6815 posts) -

I would nuke the hell out of the Middle East.

#24 Posted by Iszdope (10163 posts) -

I'd also move to the country and eat a lot of peaches.

#25 Posted by MlauTheDaft (3853 posts) -

I'd remove healthcare and corporate taxes universally.

Also, I'd take up horse riding and start listening to country music.

#26 Posted by KHAndAnime (13918 posts) -

I'd probably step down - I'd be nothing more than a puppet for my advisers, no reward is worth the stress of being president.

Damn we got some totalitarians up in here!

"You're a Republican - 10 years in prison"

"You were praying yesterday. $150,000 fine".

By the way, I think Aljosa is just joking, but I get the feeling speedfreak is serious.

That's the one I was criticizing him for. I'm fine with his other two proposals.
