I strongly agree with reforms to voting. You should have to earn the right to vote by some means.

Education. If we don't respect individuals, the entire point of this nation is lost.

Stop electing lawyers and business men adept at gaming the system in their favor and then wondering why they all game the system in their favor once they get into office.

I'm pretty sure we'd be better off if we had scientists, engineers and even plumbers running things.

Too much to do, but if I had to pick a starting point, it would be either abolishing the income tax or abolishing the Federal Reserve.

I'd put a contraceptive in the public water supply. If you want to reproduce, you have to come before me and prove you will instill good values, work ethic, and can afford to pay for YOUR child. Then, I give you the antidote.

My one thing would easily return it to being the greatest country on earth. I'm not allowed to say what it is and I'd be kicked off Glock Talk if I did. (and no, it has nothing to do with any political assassination).

If it counts as 1 thing, I'd repeal every amendment after the 10th, but that wouldn't be my 1 thing to fix the country.

My fix?

A basic, common knowledge test would have to be passed as a requirement to be able to vote.

I agree with EnemyOfTheState.. this country is so effed-up no way can doing 'one thing' correct the situation.

Not saying those suggestions are not good ones.. most are, but, MAN, what a pickle we are in.

We have too long been satisfied with being spectators..

We had that, prior to the civil rights movement of the 60's, in many states. We fixed it. Turns out, requiring basic, common knowledge is discriminatory.

And, we could do that by going to a national sales tax. Then you could dump the IRS as the states already have the people in place collecting it now, which they could do for the federal government and send in. Make it hard to raise it, with super-majorities in both houses. No exemptions, no deductions (because once you grant one, no matter how logical or compassionate, you have opened the door to be right back where we are).

And to rile the atheists among us, this is also Biblical...

By a floating flat tax I mean a flat tax that can only be raised by Congress to pay for a defined national emergency. The tax increase will have a time limit of 1 year from date of enactment then it expires and will have to be revisited by Congress to keep in place depending on circumstances. No national emergency, no tax increase and the rate defaults to it's lowest setting.

Yep.

And after some time, when we again had the strongest economy imaginable by the modern mind, begin enforcement of Article 1, Section 10.

And live happily ever after.


All the other problems and troubles would eventually take care of themselves.

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.

Yes, eliminate withholding, and make ALL income tax payable, in cash or MO, on the day before Election Day every year.
