A Quick and Simple Plan For Politicians to UNFUCK AMERICA


So what Jefferson was saying was,
"Hey! You know, we left this England place because it was bogus.
So if we don't get some cool rules ourselves, pronto,
we'll just be bogus too." 


I was recently asked by a person in the UK government to list the steps I would like to see the US government take in order to actually Make America Great Again.

Here are my first ten actions, in no particular order:


1) Re-institute The Glass-Steagall Act and require FASB to re-institute Mark-To-Market

2) Require an independent audit of all of the Federal Reserve Banks, every year

3) Pass and enforce a Balanced Budget Amendment

4) Pass a Flat Tax Amendment, not to exceed 10%, with an equivalent rate for income and capital gains

5) Enforce The War Powers Act and repeal The Patriot Act

6) Close all 800 or so overseas military bases and cancel all foreign aid

7) Pass a law that only people eligible to vote for a candidate may contribute to that candidate

8) Pass a law that limits US Senators and Congressmen to two terms

9) Protect privacy; enforce The 4th Amendment; and prosecute government employees when they spy and collect data on American citizens 

10) Move all spent nuclear fuel to Yucca Mountain


I can dream.

I wish we could hear our so-called elected representatives argue against these ten simple items, but that will never happen.

Who are they really working for?

Please share what you see as the pros and cons of each step, or suggestions for other steps, in the comments below.
