I used the Senate for a link but feel free to expound from any Federal elected office. Some of you posters in this forum are strikingly intelligent and I think a round table discussion of our ideas to fix this absolute mess would be informative at the very least.

My own list, in no particular order other than #1.

1. I would order an immediate withdrawal of troops in Afghanistan. No sense in risking further injury or death to our nation's finest when its going back into Taliban hands anyway.

2. We'd deploy troops to the Mexican border with standing orders to shoot to kill inside our perimeter. I'd even be nice and post signs in Spanish saying so. Same for Canada.

3. We'd balance the budget and amend the Constitution requiring it. Tax breaks for everyone with skin in the game once the national debt is paid off.

4. We'd go to a flat tax system.

5. The rule of law would be strictly enforced.

6. Freedom trampling agencies and laws would be abolished.

7. We'd explore our nation's oil preserves to the utmost.

8. English would be established as the national language and required for citizenship.

9. Illegal immigrants would be detained, collected centrally and sent back to their country of origin.

10. I would bludgeon social program spending.

Thats my quick .02, lets hear some ideas.

* If you receive food stamps, social welfare, or government handouts, you don't get to vote. A person should not be allowed to vote themselves a handout from somebody else's pocket.

* If you never paid into social security, you can't ever collect from it.

* Ban rap music.

I am a firm believer that 99% of our problems can be traced back to taxation of labor. I think if that single issue is addressed, a large portion of the rest would solve themselves over time, including illegal immigration and welfare.

Stop punishing success and rewarding failure and you'll see people behave and VOTE more responsibly. Remove the federal withholding and people are going to start caring A LOT about where their money goes.

Whoever controls the money, controls the govt. Right now the govt controls the money. Give that BACK to the people as it was intended and much of our ills would be reversed.

All the socialism is FORCED. Money is taken from the people at gunpoint. Take away the gun and you re-impower the people.

Without that socialism, there would not be an illegal immigration problem. Those coming here would really be coming here for jobs. No jobs = No immigration. Jobs available, we NEED immigration. It would regulate itself.

We can reverse it all just by removing the 16th amendment.

IMO

Government is a necessary evil, end the need for the evil and all will be well.

If I wanted to answer problems I wouldn't choose government as the vehicle to do it since government isn't nor was it ever the answer to problems.

People that constantly support government as an answer to anything have the attention span of a nat. If government was the answer to problems don't you think it's current size would've eliminated any problems? It hasn't eliminated one problem since it's beginning and only added to them all the while being highly inefficient and grossly abusive of power.

You may say it ended slavery, really? If it did then why the civil rights movement 100 years later and still counting?

Let me splan in simple english, government groupies have empowered the government to be gigundous and at the same time enriched this highly inefficient, grossly abusive power with the most advanced weapons of all time all the while the groupies try and hold on to 30 round clips they can only use in their semi auto pee shooters. Were screwed and some think an election with evil and a lesser evil will solve anything. Morons.

The irony is ....the problem is the federal government.

Point by point from wars, to taxation, entitlements, over regulation, immigration, non enforcement of laws, deficits, etc. All of this is courtesy of a giant federal government which is exactly what The Founders went out of their way to limit.

More irony... we all know what the problems are and we all know how to fix them. Think of the political chain emails that go around detailing exactly which laws we need. The solutions are there and nothing ever comes about politically. It is a travesty that Bob Corker ran essentially unopposed in 2010 and that Lamar Alexander to date has no Republican challenger.
