    1) issue presidential pardons to anyone in federal prison doing time for non-violent drug offenses involving weed

    2) issue an executive order allowing gays to serve openly in the military

    3) disband the ATF

    4) start pulling back Americans stationed in foreign nations-especially places like Germany and Japan

    5) disband the department of education and look to disband some others

    6) make sure the judges that are appointed don't think the constitution is a "living document"

    I would have a National Manufacturing Index. When unemployement was above 4% it would trigger tariffs. All Imports would fall into the catagory. National sales tax 10%- No other Domestic tax!

    Re: If you were the president of the United States...

    I was thinking, if we invade iran and maybe one other middle east country, we could do a number of things right this time:

    *reinstate the draft
    --don't use the expensive Black Water thugs, when 3 new recruits come at half the price
    --targeted recruiting to achieve specific homeland employment numbers
    --we target areas of high unemployment for recruiting
    --we recruit from factories with low productivity (just to make an example and get other factory workers to step it up)
    --we recruit collage grads living at home with their parents
    --and we recruit from industries that have strong labor unions (this will allow companies to hire new people at starting salary)

    *Make sure we pay for it this time
    --call it the PATRIOT TAX or whatever, but we need to properly fund it this time
    --TAX guns, booze, smokes, and internet porn.
    --TAX married couples w/o children at higher rate
    --Allow people to sponsor a unit, makes it more personal
    --For a nominal one-time fee, individuals or groups can sponsor a particular unit. You'd get an official certificate, photos of men, and weekly updates on what your boys are up to.

    *don't use Haliburton!!
    --sure they're one stop shopping for all your logistics needs, but they overcharge!
    --we could get more competitive bids from many american companies
    --Coke, McDonnell's, Walmart, Kraft
    --sell ad space on tanks and planes like they do for NASCAR

    *we keep the oil
    --how the frig did we not get the Iraq oil??
    --this time, finders keepers.

    *sell the media rights
    --Super bowl, World Series, Olympics... Why not sell the exclusive rights to war coverage?
    --Pay-per-View Special Ops missions
    --Season Ticket Conflict option on satellite

    *Other Misc Items
    --To incentivize extra tours of duty, enlisted men should get a substantial bonus... payable upon completion of the year.

    --strict cost controls on high-tech weaponry. Granddaddy didn't need all that fancy, pricey crap to fight the VC.

    --Officer bonus pay should be based on meeting quarterly cost per kill numbers. Overspend on ammo or artillery and lose your bonus.

    --Consider engaging in conflict with a Country that has some level of air force and air defense. We can't build new planes if none of ours ever get shot down.

    --Pilots flying planes older than 5 years can eject w/o penalty after dropping payload. This will help us modernize our air force with cleaner, newer planes. (More homeland jobs.)

    --People incarcerated can volunteer for IAD detection teams. They will walk in tight groups of 20-30 a hundred yard in front of vehicle convoys.

    --Also, to involve the navy as much as possible, look for as many beach and coastal battles as possible. Oman, Yemen.

    In five to seven years we could solve the financial and employment crisis--American would be back on top...

    guns already are subject to an 11% Robinson-Pittman excise tax-it pays for wildlife conservation etc (on top of sales taxes)

    I'd have a fireside chat with the American public and lecture them in no uncertain terms about their poor judgment.

    Re: If you were the president of the United States...

    Ok seriously,
    Economy- I would institute a works program to get people back to work, and stimulate the economy. I would eliminate wasteful spending, such as corporate welfare, and I would push further legislation to regulate wall-street so we can avoid another recession like this one.
    Foreign policy- I would continue to move the troops out of Iraq, and would make a plan to do the same for Afghanistan. I would spend more time, focusing on destroying individual terrorist cells by use of special forces, and individual missions, than a full scale war.
    Environment- I would further promote alternative energy sources, by giving grants to research effective, and cost efficient alt. energy sources, and I would stop off shore drilling.
    Immigration- I would expand the border patrol, giving them more power, and funds. So as to make it harder for illegals to cross. But I would also make it easier for people wanting to come into the country to come in legally, by making the process simple, and easy to understand, and accomplish.
    Same Sex Marriage- I would push for legislation for nationwide legalization of Same Sex Marriage, and nothing less. If I was going to accomplish one thing during my term it would be this.
    Drug Legislation- I would push for the legalization of marijuana, where it would have the same status as alcohol. I would stop the war on drugs, and have that money focused on more important things.

    I would task a Secret Service agent to carry a chalice full of beer for me.

    Why? Because I'm the president, bitch.
