id tackle them all in one bite!!! HAHA

environmental issues - and monsanto would be first. then i get to some of these money issues along with religion in one big gulp to wash it down with.

id have some great advisors on my side too like steven hawking, mayo angelou, and the ever awesome jack johnson! (um the last just because his voice makes me mellow and im sure if i met him in person id melt ever care away)

This could get really lengthy if I were to just rattle on so I'm going to keep it short and sweet. LOL!

Money~ In general I'd like to see us going back to using tangible money (coins/gold) and bartering. Politically speaking, I'd cut the governments pay in half and help those in the lower classes.

Politics~ Minimal intervention from government in personal lives. Possibly give power back to the states/people.

Religion~ Every man for himself.

Insurance/Health issues~ Free. Seriously, I'd like it to all be free lol. Of course if the food/pharmaceutical industry was ripped to shreds then we'd solve about 90% of the health issues in America

Any other thoughts~ Nah, I'll leave it at that. LOL!

Politicians would get paid minimum wage.
We'd dissolve all debts and start over as best we can with bartering being the main tool for getting things and giving things.
Health care free and the more natural approach wouldnt be regarded as unsafe or horrid or anything else...no more FDA!!!!! Doctors and Pharmacy folk would get a minimum wage too. No bloating nothing!
Borders would be closed for a while til we could straighten our own youknowwhat out then we'll open up again.
States and people would control things more than gov't dudes.
You wanna believe in God or whatnot...awesome, if you dont...awesome. To each their own and if you start crap...jail.
I wouldnt put up with too much LOL, respect will be the main law of the land and that goes for plants and trees and other things too not just humans. We need to relearn that concept.

I don't even know where to begin...I guess I shouldn't rule anything...

BUT...that being said...

I think Big Brother should go away...states govern themselves...close the borders and sort out the immigrant mess, schools should be run by the people who teach, shut down at least half of the U.S. military bases we have around the world, and bring our soldiers home to protect us and not some other countries who should/can protect themselves...invest in science and math and our education system in general so that we can protect the U.S. with technology, compete with space exploration, and prevent global hacking and warfare of technological infrastructures, encourage self sufficiency for all people with regards to food production/bartering/eco-friendly energy...get rid of the FDA and pharma lobbyists, make sure that the rights of individuals pertains to ALL people, fair and affordable healthcare for everyone, livable retirement/healthcare/hospice for all people who have paid into the system, and positively, absolutely, NO outrageous provisions for our elected officials...they will have, deserve the same benefits and rights that they pass into law for all of us.

These are just a few...there is oh, so much more.....

I agree with everything you said but definitely the bolded. We are SUCH busy-bodies, always getting up in other people's business! I get so irritated about this. Stop trying to RULE THE WORLD America, sheesh..

political people just plain piss me off. if your gonna be in politics then be in politics. if you wanna run a social club then buy a stupid golf course.
where are they getting all these "votes" from anyway? who voted to raise their pay? who votes for the rich to stay rich and to tax the poor extra? where are all these votes at? are there not more poor people then rich???....

i agree with all the people here who have anwsered this post. but if it could only happen then it would be America the great. The land of the FREE.

k...rant over .

Whats sad is that we, the average folk, know what it takes to get this country back on its feet and working the way it should.
Yet, we are in the doghouse and never get listened to by those WE put into office.
