If You Were President.
 
In the spirit of continued civil discussion, I thought this would be an interesting thread.

To the best of my knowledge, none of us here are qualified to hold the office of Chief Executive for any extended period of time. But perhaps for a day, a week, a or even a month, we could get something done.

What one or two things would you immediately "jump on" to change or laws you would enact? I almost want to make the only exception to this discussion, the war in Iraq. Simply because it's already being discussed ad nauseam.

Now think about the possible pros and cons, because everyone has great ideas when it comes to change, but in the context of politics and all eyes on you and only you, would you still make that same decision?

Not quite sure how, but I would eliminate money in politics.

Right now that's our number one problem... from media giants slipping their bias' into pop culture to finding money in refrigerators... we need real people making real decisions... not all this mumbo jumbo...

Secondly, I would make it so no-one could form a huge run-on paragraph where they constantly abuse the ...... It's obnoxious, and I do it non-stop.

I'd move the Skins back to RDK. Seriously.

Secondly, I'd probably take a look at Supreme Court Justices serving such long terms on the bench.

I don't know, but I think I am qualified to be president. It's a management job though you are leading an entire nation. You put together a great team with experts on different subjects, have them advice you, and approve or disapprove proposals by your aids. The president just has to be a ethical and a critical thinker.

If I were president for a day I'd kill the abomination that is the Patriot Act and sign the Kyoto Treaty. And yes, I would make the decision every time.

I don't know what the problem is with the media giants putting their bias into pop culture. That's the basis of free speech and free press. My first order is business is going to be the coolest President for the day ever. I would sit out on the front lawn like total trash and drink Keystone Light.

THEN I'd go inside and make some decisions. Creating custom teams USA and a custom team called "The World" in Madden, I would title each player a different country. Each player that I defeated would then be sent a box of Wheaties provocatively suggesting, "Better eat up if you wanna' hang with the big boys." Canada would be the punter.

After my tenth Keystone, I'd probably want to see some strippers so I'd smack my wife on the ass and tell her to make the call and to make me a sandwich while she was at it. If she refused, I'd remind her to call me Mr. President. The strippers should also refer to me as that as well.

Next, I would make some serious decisions about social security while soaked in Keystone and stripper sweat. Social security gets privatized while I'm in office and that translates to a lot of Keystone and strippers later in life.

Last thing I do before I leave my day as President is to rob the place blind and smack a Secret Service agent in the face because I could.

Yesssssssss! I know so little about politics, I had to think of something funny. Seriously though, I'd probably enact at least two or three of the things I mentioned above.

sane energy policy. (corn subsidies, nuclear, more research into oceanic sources, more transmission bandwidth, etc) no bills that allow invasion of privacy without some kind of watchdog group to check for abuse. more emphasis and education on preventive care (which save TONS of money in the long run). a revue of tax codes (more simplicity could save lots of money on oversite and compliance). etc etc

I'd make TMC my Vice President just to make my day a little funnier.
Then, I'd probably shoot myself in the head - so many sh*tstorms are brewing right now that I wouldn't have the first clue where to start.

I like the lawn thing....I don't think I've ever done that before. Sounds cool.

I think we could resolve a lot of our nation's woes over a good game of beer pong.
