Fire all the Czars,
Repeal Obummercare
Tear up Clintons Stupid foreign policy agreement, (America would be self sufficient again, with out own farmers growing our own food.)
Tell the U.N. to take a flying leap and pull us out. (America, stands alone)
Tell all these morons who scream and whine and cry about GOD, being in school, federal/state/local buildings and on our money to shut up or get out.
Incite the people to let there reps/congress/senators know that if they don't do their job then they WILL be FIRED

Excommunicate Al Gore, banning him from ever stepping foot on American soil, ever again, and so for Bill and Hillary, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Al Frankin, face it, everyone in the Senate.

FOR STARTERS

CandaePrincess 10-04-2011 11:02 AM

so basically pigheaded would prefer to do away with Democracy. That's nice.......

I would make it a REQUIREMENT for anyone who votes to actually KNOW about politics, read up on bills, help them understand them....and then make their choices. You know...the way it's supposed to be done, instead of someone basing their decision b/c they hate the other party. it's about time to grow up now isn't it??? this isn't football.....it's gov't.

Including the extended the long term unemployment benefits that he fought for to keep Americans from loosing their homes and forced to go to welfare and soup kitchens? LOL... You know because the economy collapsed because of a major lack of regulation and oversight, which was the fault of both parties.

Not everything he has done was bad. Obamacare was bad from the start because too many people put too much pork into it for the sole purpose of letting the bill destroy itself within a few years.

Isolationism is what got us attacked in WWII.

Clinton's policy with NAFTA has its ups and downs, but just imagine how much more expensive produce would be if we had to pay the tariffs on it when we bought it from Mexico during the winter.

But why exile Al Gore? I can see why some people would like the others on your list to go, but Al Gore?

Poor judgment and stupidity is what got us attacked in WWII. "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." - from the diary of Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

What was wrong with the produce we used to grow in AZ, forever and a day? As far a tariffs, well, that's that political BS I referred to when letting your rep know that he worked for us. When America was self sufficient, things were well with Her.

Because he is the biggest TOOL of them all, and that whole Global warming invention of his. I mean really. I keep hearing how global warming this global warming that, yet keep seeing record breaking freezes, snows, rain, ice cap growth. It's just all too made up.

But this is just what I'd do.

Democracy is never compromised CP when the voices of the people are heard and listened to. That is not what has happened AT ALL these last 3 years. The majority did not want socialized healthcare, now we are all on IHS insurance, that's how well gov medical takes care of ya, and we are all footing the bill, my private insurance, really isn't that great anymore and almost 5 times more expensive. The doing away with democracy is when the general consensus decides to vote something in, so they can see what's inside of it.

Remember, the question was, What would you do if YOU were Prez for a day. Well this is what I'd do. I didn't refute anyone else's opinion. Because as an American, you have the right to your opinion. Toolbox did you forget that when you decided to ban the tea party? A movement that started out as a genuine movement of Pissed off American REP, DEM and IND, alike.
Just saying if your gonna throw rock, you might want to move out of the glass house.

No animosity, just honesty. :smile:

Toolbox 10-04-2011 01:21 PM

No animosity either, I like a good debate, do it all the time with my friends and family.

I tried to so hard to avoid this thread but I gave into myself.

I wanted to ban the tea party, because the majority are bigots, and no nothing about government. For instance 80% of them when asked had no idea what even the basics of what Obamacare was about. They have no idea how the global economy works and how isolationism is incredibly bad.

As for growing and making stuff here, I wish we had more manufacturing and farming jobs. The reason why so many jobs went over seas isn't so much government regulation and taxes (GE is proof there) its corporate greed on the part of the board and shareholders. See the larger part of the problem and what is really difficult to deal with is that corporations are responsible to their shareholders and not their employees.

As for Obamacare, it needs to be thrown out, but not without first putting in place something that serves the original intent which was to fix healthcare and make it affordable and accessible to everyone.

Global warming is real, the myth is that we are fully responsible for it. The record cold temps are a result of a change in both the gulf stream and the jet stream which are the natural climate regulators in the northern hemisphere. All the pollutants and natural occurrences are causing them to change. For instance the gulf stream is slowing down because the north is becoming too warm.

CandaePrincess 10-04-2011 01:27 PM

the tea party to me was extreme whites who wanted "their" american back....sans Balack Obama........let's address the elephant in the room. Yeah....climate change isn't real...although there have been floods, tornados, droughts that have happened. But yeah, it doesn't exist. So why are the polar caps melting again???

Mother nature fixes herself.

as far as healthcare, if we had one in place that was working and not leaving people to just fend for themselves, there wouldn't be a problem. what irks me are the conservatives I know personally who gripe about left wing politics, Obama's health care and then...I swear on everything holy...they send their kids to IHS b/c their spouse is native. I'm like HELLO IGNORANT!!!! You're sending your kids to "gov't" funded healthcare. What's the differenct??? It's okay for you to send your kids but for other kids you don't think it's right???? It's mind boggling.


Moving on - if I was president for a day...I'd move all non natives back to their respective countries. I would say "thank you, we can take it from here" You better hope you have a CDIB. :P

I would agree with you on all points but Isolationism. I still believe America was it's strongest when we were self reliant.

Are you insinuating that greedy slim ball corporate billionaires decided to move there corp. to another country so they could save a buck? I mean could this really happen move a company to say China and pay some one $3 a day verses oh i don't know say reasonable wages to live off of? Is that really what you are trying to say? (Insert sarcasm here):teeth_smi

And that's what I'm saying. See without all the rhetoric DEM and REP can actually see the others point. That's a MAJOR problem for both sides of the isle

I will agree with you there in some areas, yes. But they are also too scared to say it for fear of being labeled what they are. Example, why is it he is the most hated Prez we have ever had, and yes, there have been many things he has done that if not teetered on the edge of unconstitutional, were down right unconstitutional, why has no one screamed for impeachment process to be enforced? So CP, I'll agree with you on that point, but NOT the majority of the tea party. Where I am, we have tea partiers who are black white, I'm an active Native Tea party member. We have men, women, liberals, democrats, independents, libertarians, oh and this is the state where we are supposed to be racist because we have SB 1070. Go figure.

ROTF. I'm sorry that just is not funny, but I couldn't help myself. The problem is, is that Big Government will never solve that problem, it can and will only make that problem bigger. Even with the best intentions, it's goin to hell in a hand basket.
