Sarge we have a lot of the same ideas. Some of mine are even more radical. I'd pull all of our troops out of the middle east and empty our prisons of those who will be serving life without parole, death row, or just more years than they have left. These newly liberated "troops" will replace the old ones. "they go in unarmed and will have to jack a weapon if they want one" I think the savings in feeding them alone is worth it, but to supplement it I will have cameras set up to pay per view their exploits in said countries. This I feel will solve several problems and generate needed revenue. It might also serve as a strong deterrent for the young people considering murder and such as a career choice.
Next I will put the current troops to work actually defending our borders. "aidos muchachos" I'll give all the illegals currently here 30 days to move out or they will be rounded up and subjected to human testing in the pharmaceutical industry.
Then it's term limits for everyone in a public office.
Also there will be mandatory drug testing for EVERYONE receiving government help. There will also be the same drug testing for all employees paid with tax dollars, no exceptions.
Everything beyond 6th grade will be optional as we will be needing our own pool of unskilled labor once the illegals are gone. 7-9th grades will be trade type schools for those in need of skills, but not academically inclined. This will make our schools better and less crowded as well as taking a lot of the criminal element out of them.
The 2nd amendment will be further strengthened to reflect what those guys actually intended it to be. None of this rate of fire restrictions, magazine capacity nonsense, or barrel length hooey. The caveat here is that if you intentionally use a gun in the commission of a crime you will be sentenced to life without the possibility of parole and set to the middle east.
Sexual assault of a child under 14 will be a death penalty only offense.
I also plan to socialize the legal system. Every lawyer will be assigned a random pool of people to cater to. The members of the ACLU will no longer have time to be part of the problem with a full case load of fender benders and divorce cases.
Directional drilling technology will be a primary spending item. No need to invade and destabilize a country when you can simply suck the oil out from under them.
I have other ideas, but type with 2 fingers, so by the time I get them all typed the election would be over.
