If You Could do ONE Thing to Fix the Country...

A local radio host asked this question today and people called in like crazy. So, if you could do ONE thing what would it be?

Me, I'd limit voting to people with skin in the game.

For sure no one on entitlements can vote.

Maybe also restrict voting to property owners, people who have an earned income, people who can pass a civics test, or people who at least volunteer a certain number of hours in their community.

Reduce government legislature (Senate and House members) to a total of 13 (no party affiliations) and they enact legislation based on citizen approval, not based on their beliefs.

Go back to the first legislator that voted proposed spending funds from the treasury that had no constitutional basis. Sieze all assets of said individual and every legislator that voted for it. Sieze all assets of their decendants and apply it to the debt.

Bren there are a lot of women that would have a major disagreement with you.

Or, a TRUE FLAT TAX

Divide the federal budget by the number of citizens over the age of majority. Each adult citizen pays an equal share.

No matter what happens, if we don't fix the education system, no one will ever know why it happened and it will repeat.

Yup.

Yeah, all that! ^^^

And, welfare lasts one year and you WORK while getting it...cleaning parks, roadways, something. NO babies while on the dole. Benefits are REDUCED if you get knocked up. Piss test for EVERY check.

Work or starve. (I guess that would be my "one thing" boiled down to it's essence)

If You Could do ONE Thing to Fix the Country...

First I'd make myself the Supreme Ruler of the United States for life with unlimited power.

Then I'd go to work.

This has been tried over and over through history. Many forms of government work and have worked for a while, problem is they are always derailed by mans' actions.

Then comes death. Always a game changer.

Man cannot rule himself and never will be able too.
