I would:

1. Loosen up gun laws.

2. Start cracking down on illegal immigrants.

3. Make it harder to get an abortion.

4. Work on lowering gas prices.

5. Start pulling out of Iraq.

Every one has really great ideas of what they would do before becoming President or any politician, but once there it's a whole new world and trip, and being President is not about ONE person, it's an Institution, as President Yes you do have to put pen to paper to activate and to confirm the final go on certain issues, but the decisions you make or avoid making are most of the time not yours and yours alone to make.

In Theory everything sounds great and obtainable but in reality it is usually not the case. I wouldn't want to be President no matter what amount of money was involved, you can't please all of the people all the time and you sure hear about them loud and clear if your the President, you are under a microscope and no one looks good under a microscope.JMO Sorry I sort of answered you question by stating I wouldn't want to be President.

That's true the president is really like a figure head, a puppet if you will and doesn't have the power to do too much. The country is really run by the banks. So, the real question is if you were a filthy rich capitalist, how would you run the country?

I'd realize I have no f***ing clue how to be President, and that someone f***ed up big time getting me there.

I, too, would appoint Ron Paul as my Vice President and then promptly resign my post with my deepest apologies to the people of my country.





But I'd do all that after I made sure Ron would give me essentially unlimited use of the White House bowling alley and any unoccupied White House bedroom

1. Pull the troops out of Iraq
2. Ban guns on the streets (local law enforcement and military use only)
3. Put immigrants to good use
4. Downsize the amount of fast food joints in the country
5. Give the country a better health plan
6. Conserve money
7. Pull out about 1/2 the money that's fuelling the defense budget and put it to good use (such as all of the above).
8. Use diplomacy to rebuild new relationships with countries that generally don't like America
9. Give Canada's oil back to them ( )

That's about all I can think of.

end the illegal war. anyone that doesn't is contributing substantially to war crimes. hence i'm not voting for mccain or hillary, who supported it.

end torture. anyone that doesn't either is a war criminal or deserves to be called one. why i like mccain and i'm not voting for hillary or obama, they give little indication they take it seriously, and i'm used to (and tired of) seeing allegedly-left-wing politicians lay down on important issues.

cease to be the last 1st-world country without a real health care system, before we become a 3rd-world country. people b**** about nhs, but laying a finger on it would ruin any politician in the uk, because politics actually matter there, it's not a high school contest for popularity.

and you know what i would say to people that took issue with any of the above? "f*** you." it's not like we haven't heard as much for 8 years, and almost no one complained about it. i know, i was looking for the people that did. people just sit down and shut up, i might as well run the country properly while they're watching television.

another thing i would do would be to set up the best committee on the planet for figuring out how the hell to have a global economy without screwing over a. every worker that was born here and, b. every immigrant (let's start with canada, since this country seems to hate mexicans so much...) that comes here under the absolute lie of "nafta," saying it's going to free up trade and employment. obviously the most important ways in which nafta could help are exceptions. it's the biggest double standard we have next to "freedom" itself.

oh, oh, and, i would bring back THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, without using that as a teaser to make it illegal to be gay like the so-called constitution party, which is a bunch of far-right bible-pounding nutjobs who wouldn't know the first amendment if it it was shoved up their ass.

but to be perfectly honest i don't have time to be your president, i'm trying to flee you nutters. you can't blame me for that. so i hope as much as most of the country does that obama turns the country around. i don't actually hate america. i pity it.

the one that would finally get me killed by the way, would be when i actually enforced the laws we already have against monopolies. i'd be a hero to the doj, and to the small businessman, while i was around. but freedom isn't about standing up for the little guy, no of course not. if you look around, it's obviously something much different than that. no one gives a s*** about the little guy, not even the little guy gives a s*** about him.

i've stood alone on any number of occasions, waiting to see if anyone else stands. i have to say this is a country of people sitting down and being quiet. it's a country where superficiality reigns. you don't deserve what you get, but you don't do anything about it, either. you deserve better, but you'll probably have to stand up for it anyway.

good luck.

All except the pull out of Iraq, Mike Savage has a plan for that.
