Drastically reduce government spending
Drastically reduce taxes
Drastically reduce or eliminate regulations
Stop all foreign aid
End Iraq war
End or reduce welfare programs
Send every individual a stimulus check
Stop corporate welfare and bailouts
End tariffs and embargos
Some of those ideas/choices...are completely impossible and unworkable...
When man learns to behave and act in a civilized manner, then the taxes can be lowered.
I selected "other".
One would think that thinking and reasoning are prohibited here..
My idea is probably no better , but here goes...
If I were President, I'd request that Congress commence with an Congressional level investigation as to what went wrong with the mortgage companies and financial institutions..
The CEOs, CFOs, and high level executives must all appear in front of Congress (the Representatives of the American people) and explain what happened.
Not one penny until the truth is known..
Some heads may have to roll.
This includes top people in the Federal Government..
Basically, writing checks is not the best way; eliminating government meddling is the best (excessive taxes, regulations, mandates, etc.). However, writing the checks is BETTER than than your other (socialist) proposals....It depends what kind of stimulus we're talking about. I'm skeptical that just writing everyone a check will help much...but establishing a public works program, and expanding unemployment insurance and medical care very well might stimulate the economy.
2. Agree totally, I would even eliminate some of the 'essentials," which may not be as essential as many people perceive.
3. Agree totally.
4. Disagree. I believe in free trade and competition.
5. Very, very few.
6. As long as it is strictly voluntarily provided and from strictly private (non-government) sources.
7Agree provided that no new spending is enacted. However, I prefer tax reduction combined with massive spending reduction.
If it is voluntary and provided privately, fine. It is NOT a legitimate government function.As I said before I am not for the complete elimination of welfare and food stamps as long as it is a helping hand and not a hand out.
Wow, a lot of good ideas.
I picked all but, ‘send every individual a stimulus check.’
