    I would send Michelle on a world tour and invite Ali Larter to the White House for a funraiser.

    If Ali Larter did not like me I would order the Secret Service to pimp for me, and get impeached, so someone better would get the job. But, first I would make the courts work for me like they work for asshole corporate welfare queens and garnish the accounts of every single executive officer and employee of Bank of America until they could not feed their dogs and their significant others threaten suicide. I would tell them in writing according to court order that if they put more money in the bank than they owed they could eat, it would be a bald faced lie. Also, all the usurers who think a National Treasure Sweepstakes hidden in the attic is funny would be sent to Guantánamo Bay, for their years of unrelenting terrorism of those who fell on bad times, and I would tell the Muslims what they are, then I would close Guantánamo Bay by letting all the Muslims out and leaving; the sight of usurers running for their lives with Muslims chasing them with swords brings tears to my eyes.

    Let’s see, what else...

    Eliminate capital gains taxes, in keeping with my picture on JFK‘s coin.

    If any so-called rich person so much as said, “fair tax,” I would amend the Constitution--like all presidential politicians say they will do something that is not in their job description--and tax the rich ****ing bastards according to their Net Worth at a flat percentage until their butts were red.

    Have a public works project for clean domestic energy production to make us energy independent, haven’t got a clue what is best but what the hell; give a man a foreign source of energy, like amber trade, feed his enemies every day, teach a man to make domestic power, feed him for a lifetime. If Congress would not go along, like all presidential politicians say they will do something that is not in their job description, I would make them, and pack the court to make it legal.

    Don’t you know it is the end of the world?

    I am no libertarian, but I agree with 90% of what they say as a Constitutionalist. I admit some of the idea's they want implemented are unrealistic, but that makes them no less right on a huge percentage of issues.

    I think your last comment about compromise is true. To bad more of the government was as uncompromisable.

    Re: If You Were President...

    I used it as an analogy.

    Marxism and Libertarianism are both political ideologies that are basically religions to their adherents.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Cut off every nation that is getting money from us. American money should be spent on America for basic essentials like law enforcement, infrastructure, military/military operations and etc. And we have a national debt, so it definitely doesn't make any sense to be giving money away like it grows on trees. If you owe money it doesn't make sense to be giving it away when you have essentials to worry about and a debt to pay off. Israel is a our ally and I think they are right in invading the Gaza strip and not letting human shields stop them from attacking the enemy but financially wide they should be on their own.However I do not give a **** if there are Israelis with dual American and Israeli citizenship,our government needs to stop this nonsense of dual citizenship and force them to pick which country they want to be part of and live there. As Teddy Roosevelt once said "Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all."
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    For those that wish to end or reduce welfare and social programs? What would you suggest we put in place to help our fellow man?

    Isn't the idea of reducing or ending a program as a means to cut cost to not replace it with something else that cost the same?

    This poll is multiple choice. Vote for all options you would perform.
    "If I were president...". I would focus ALL of my efforts at subdueing the ,Money Whore". Plain and simple money whores created ALL of these current ,and most past financial crisis.Money whoreing being criminal I would then begin to lock them up for a very long time. They,(the money whores),said," if you keep us filthy rich the economy will be strong". They are filthy rich and the economy is anything but strong.
