    If elected, I would...

    I woke up in a ranting mood this morning. Actually, it started yesterday evening watching the news broadcast regarding the TN judge who ruled that illegals commit no crime when they steal SSN numbers for employment.

    This got me thinking, what would I do if elected to the presidency? Granted, one individual will not fix this mess, and I do believe the USA is in a real state of decline. However, here is what I would do...

    -Secure the borders
    -Round up 12 million illegals and ship them home
    -Remove all Federal funding from San Francisco
    -Replace the entire Federal judiciary with common sense minded folks
    -Severely toughen up Federal sentencing guidelines
    -National Concealed Carry, no permit required, no restrictions
    -Arrest and prosecute the elected leadership of DC and other municipalities for not upholding the Supreme Court Heller rulings
    -Break the back of the NEA (National Education Association)
    -Not bail out the mortgage industry, but let the market correct itself
    -Put forward several multi-million dollar prizes for energy r&d, including wind, batteries, hydrogen, etc
    -Hit big oil with windfall taxes to fund the energy initiative prizes
    -Make Iraq pay for the cost of cleaning up their mess

    Whew, I feel better!

    So, what would you fix in this country that you think is wrong?

    Hugo Chavez is doing the same thing..... unfortunately he managed to sink the Oil Industry in Venezuela.

    How about keeping things simple and enforce that little document called the US Constitution?

    Our great country was built on immigration. I myself am the product of immigrants many generations back. But immigration must be legal. So, what about the other 10+ million illegal immigrants? Round them up too.

    Make the Constitution required reading...make all politicians take a required 'reading' course and test prior to taking office.

    Windfall taxes on big oil is silly. They don't even run a large profit margin.

    I don't want to be elected. That is too much work. I want to be anointed.

    I think there should be a law, that anyone that wants to be president, should be disqualified. There should be a test given, including full knowledge of the Constitution of the United States.

    Companies pass the taxes straight on to the consumer. We would all suffer with higher prices and less jobs available because the cost of business just went up. That goes for higher taxes on all companies.

    The profit margin of the oil companies is on par or much lower than many other companies out there. The government makes like 4-5x what the oil companies do on each gallon of gas...for doing nothing while the oil companies do all of the work.

    How about passing legislation to drill, build refineries, mine oil shale, and build nuclear power plants(France electricity is 70% nuclear, let's catch up). This would make us self sufficient. Oil prices would come down because now we have our own supply, and aren't entirely reliant on foreign energy, the speculators would see that we are doing something about our energy problems and the prices would drop like a rock.

    I think you should go back to bed and wake up in a better mood...


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
