    Honestly, I would get a bunch of the most important economic thinkers, lock myself and them in a room for a week and talk it out. If something should be done, they can explain to me why, and why that something is better than another's idea. If I don't understand something, there's gonna be some learnin' goin' on.

    I believe at least a moderate recession is both inevitable and necessary. That is, there is no fix.

    But that doesn't mean anyone should have to fear it (with)...
    1. good public health care
    2. reasonable public housing
    3. more unemployment benefits


    And since sustainability is critical (a)...
    1. more progressive income tax
    2. moderate inheritance tax
    3. high luxury tax

    Now that is interesting.

    And mans attempts to relieve human misery......we now know that neither of the above are effective....at least most of us...
    There will always be a degree of this suffering...

    If I were President, I would request a Congressional Investigation as to the cause of the financial crisis.
    Men would have to answer tough questions, without any blaming others and politicing...
    On our automakers, I do not wish to see any more fail...Maybe corporations should not be allowed to grow so much that their possible downfall could create so much misery on the people..
    We must study the success of the Germans and Japanese...
    But, IMO, its one word..
    Respect.

    NONE of the above three items are legitimate government functions. The correct and constitutional function of government is to is to keep its nose out of our business and PROTECT our right to provide these for ourselves.

    I'd take most of those along with dismantling many government agencies including but not limited to Department of Education, Homeland Security, NSA, OIA, etc. Return as much power to the States as possible, and let people start figuring out how to solve their own problems.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    This poll is multiple choice. Vote for all options you would perform.
    If I were president I would be assassinated, promptly. I don't want to think about it.

    According to whom? The Church of Libertarianism?

    Certainly not the Constitution...

    We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
