just put the fate of USA in my hands for 4 years
Day 1 - cancel the big inaugration parades, swear me in at a simple session at White House. pull out our troops in Afganistan, put members of Congress on the same benefit package as the rest of us (no lifelong health care, social security, etc all retroactive)
Day 2 - start drawing down our troop levels in Germany/Japan/S. Korea. Have meeting with my generals to get them working on a comprehensive report as to our enemies in the next year to ten years and how we are to combat them
Day 3 - put Congress on Term Limits (2 terms no more).
Day 4 - close Department of Education and Commerce. Cut funding for PBS
Day 5 - authorize the building of 4 nuclear plants. authorize more drilling for oil
Week 2 - no more handouts to other countries (to include Israel), announce a 15% cut in funding to all government agencies effective immediately.
Month 1 - no tax breaks for any company in America that sends jobs overseas
Year 1 - institute a 15% flat tax on all purchases. No more income tax period. Cut military spending to be in line with what America needs to defend itself.
After only 2 years, our goverment spending is now closer to an acceptable level, we will be able to pay our bills and have money left over. This money goes into a rainy day fund. The people will then start clearing a place on Mount Rushmore for me.
