Government does not create jobs. They can only nurture (or in the case of the Jerk-in-Chief...hinder) the economy to entice the job market to improve.2. Jobs, jobs, jobs! Come up with a plan and name someone BIG to implement it.
Why only 5%? I'd make it 10% + the dissolution of select agencies (education).3. Government reduction plan: 5% across-the-board spending cuts, consolidation of agencies and departments, tax reform (revolution).
Public education is the biggest form of child abuse this country has right now. Government meddling is the reason.10. Education reform and someone to run it. Massive change based on getting education to educate to the coming economy, not the economy of the last century. Public education built this country. The greatest thing this country offers is twelve years of free education. It’s up to the local level to get control of the public schools.
Absolutely. Make each unemployed person work a minimum of 5 hours of community service for every UI check they get. Let's see how long those butts stay on the couch THEN.11. Welfare reform: drug testing, report for work at 9:00 AM 5 days a week to perform public service or just to report and be sent back home. Require SOMETHING in return.
I'd be more for zero earmarks, and all bills up for vote must be no fewer than 100 pages. If you can't get a bill in under 100 pages, then break it up and force a vote on the pieces.14. Term limits for all federal elective offices and a lifetime ban on becoming a paid lobbyist after term ends.
Listen you peasant. You can NOT be dictating how our dear rulers act. Get back in your little hut and STFU or get to waxing one of their Escalades, while they brainwash you about how (other) rich people are hurting you.15. Congress meets in full quarterly. All other time is spent in their home districts with meetings done over the net by teleconferencing etc unless a national emergency is declared. This will keep them closer to their constituents and make it more difficult for lobbyists to access them.
I would also add that presidential candidates can be sued for slander/libel. Perhaps if this were the case, we wouldn't be bombarded with these "my opponent hates you and eats babies" advertisements.
