If I were an elected official and could have my way;

1) The federal Dept. of Education would be abolished. States would be free to run their school systems as they see fit.

2) EPA would immediately cease the war being waged on fossil fuels, farmers, local governments, and business.

-CO2 would no longer be a pollutant.

-If a farm, business, or local government produces waste that is potentially harmful to humans or the environment, you would be free to handle it as you see fit so long as you can scientifically prove your method is not harmful.

- VA hospitals would be improved drastically or some administrators would be serving time in jail.

- No more infringement on the 2A. Government officials who attempt to restrict it will be prosecuted for civil rights violations.

-Citizens would be encouraged to arm themselves and learn how to handle their weapon. No programs for this.. just verbal encouragement.

-The ethanol mandates, especially the one requiring 40% of the corn crop to be processed into ethanol, would be history.

-Farm subsidies would end. Farmers would be free to create their own safety nets with tax deductible contributions to their own private programs.

-Federal OSHA offices would be shut down and all related land, structures, etc. would be sold to the highest private bidders. Private entities would be free to develop their own safety standards by working with the insurance providers they use to cover workplace injuries.

-Unless on a trip that truly represents the interest of the country, the President's wife and children would have to travel at their own expense.

-Congress would be subject to the same rules, regulations, policies, and health insurance as the average private citizen.

-Lobbyists and anyone who has contributed PAC money or donated to a political party within the last two election cycles would be barred from visiting the White House as guests.

- Hiring, employing, harboring, entering into a contract (written or unwritten, including hiring them to cut your grass) with an illegal alien would be a federal offense and would result in fines equal to at least three times the monetary benefit you may have received or payed them.

-If a congressman ever again suggested too many boots on the ground may sink or capsize Guam, he would be ridiculed until he resigned his office.

Fat, power-tripping, mall cop reject TSA employees would be subject to sterilization, branding, and public floggings when they overstep their bounds.

All of this is nice but does any of it have a realist chance of happening??

Sometimes I think America is too far gone, we ALL let it happen for far too long.

They absorb challengers so they do not get primaried

Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, said she would NOT challenge Lamar Alexander. Of course this was no surprise as she has already endorsed Alexander and serves as a campaign co-chair.

First, let's assume I'm not an elected official (because we all know elected officials can get nothing done in today's government). Instead, let's assume that after participating in a 2nd Revolution, I'm elected by my fellow patriots to be temporary dictator of America with absolute power to fix the problems that have built up over 200 years of mismanagement.

1) Write and publish an accompanying document to the Constitution, explaining in great detail what each Amendment in the Bill of Rights means, why it was originally created (what problem existed and what remedy was needed to fix that potential problem) for the purpose of greatly reducing misinterpretation of the Constitution by Judges, Lawyers and the Government.

2) Re-assess every decision the Supreme Court has ever made, undoing the 80+% of their decisions that have been wrong, and all laws linked to those incorrect decisions.

3) Work with the brightest minds in the Country to develop a non-partisan police force with the power to arrest any elected official, including the President, for violations of the Constitution. This police force would focus specifically on seeking out abuse of power. Abuse of power will be declared one of the worst crimes that can be committed, at every level where one citizen has power over another, with extreme punishments attached. Figuring out how to prevent this ultimate governmental police force from being able to abuse its power would be the tricky part.

4) Re-evaluate all Federal employment, eliminating everything that is not ESSENTIAL to Federal governance. This would eliminate at least two-thirds of all federal jobs and many entire Departments, such as Labor, Energy, and Education.

5) Implement a flat income tax and ALL income--every dollar made--is taxed at the same percentage, no deductions.

6) Assess every single person who gets any government assistance of any kind. Only people who are incapable of working due to complete physical and/or mental incapacitation will receive assistance. A kind and caring society takes care of those who, through no fault of their own, are incapable of taking care of themselves.

7) Implement two-term term limits on all elected federal offices, and strongly urge states to do the same.

8) End all federal business/industry subsidies of any kind.

9) Implement 2-year mandatory federal/military service for all citizens. Those who prefer not to enter the military can serve by performing what had previously been paid federal clerical and physical labor jobs.

10) Require passing a "knowledge of the issues" test before citizens are allowed to vote.

11) Require elected officials to pass a "knowledge of the bill" test before being allowed to vote yes or no. Those elected officials who fail more than three of these tests during a single term are immediately sent packing.

12) Work with the brightest minds in the Country to revamp our election process, with the goal being to eliminate the influence of money on election results (I honestly cannot think of a workable system yet).

13) Enforce all of our immigration laws, fortify and protect our borders, and revamp our immigration policy with the goal of attracting the top minds, talent, and lovers of liberty in the world to our country.

14) After all of these are accomplished, resign my dictatorship and turn the country back over to the people.
