Although there is NEVER any chance that I will run or be elected to public office, I pretty much know what I would do if selected for the Oval Office.
First of all, it needs to be stated that America doesn’t need change; America needs restoration.
My first act would be to issue a pair of Executive Orders.
The first one would nullify every previous Executive Order, most of which are unconstitutional anyway.
My second Executive Order would completely repeal Obamacare, an unconstitutional action that was only passed by the Senate, deliberately breaking their own rules and procedures. Moreover, it was also a tax bill that unconstitutionally-originated in the Senate, not the House.
The repeal of Obamacare would save over $1 Trillion dollars to the annual budget. In addition, this one single action would be solely responsible for jump-starting the economy, freeing up small and large businesses, and result in the hiring of untold millions of workers in private industry from sea to shining sea.
I would immediate change the name of the Secretary of Defense to the Secretary of War, for no other reason just to give our enemies a reason to once again fear what we might do, should they be so stupid as to once again attack us.
I would eliminate the Department of Homeland Security, because that responsibility should be made plain in the previous paragraph.
My next program would be to eliminate the IRS, fire its employees, burn down the building, take a wrecking ball to the remains, and dump them into the ocean, immediately following the dry run of this exercise on the United Nations.
You won’t need the IRS, because there would only be a two-tiered tax system for all individuals and businesses. The tax would be 10% on all income for those with adjusted gross incomes of less than $250 thousand a year. Anybody earning more than that would pay 20%.
And I’m only creating a two-tiered system just to satisfy you whiny, liberal bed-wetters. You know who you are, those of you who routinely pout and protest because someone who worked harder or studied more than you just happened to achieve more.
I would abolish the Departments of Energy and Education. The reasons are simple: these two departments haven’t produced one quart of oil or one graduate. No need for them.
The Departments of Housing and Urban Development and Health and Human Services would no longer be needed because our Commerce and Labor Department would be combined, and no longer in the business of hindering and hamstringing US businesses.
And with the millions of additional jobs created, aided by higher salaries, in order to keep your best employees from going elsewhere, there would be no trouble taking care of those relatively few Americans who truly cannot work.
I would close the Department of Transportation, since they don’t arrange carpools and most of their duties could also be handled by the Department of the Interior.
I would fire every single government Czar, a position that was never constitutional anyway.
Foreign aid would be increased to the Nation of Israel, since they are the only other democratic country in the world that truly understands that Islam is the world’s greatest threat to individual liberty.
Foreign aid would be eliminated to ANY country that publicly denounced the US, or allowed any terrorist attack on ANY of our embassies in their countries, or any country that has Sharia Law.
I would enforce our borders, make English the ONLY language of citizenship or commerce, a decision that would save untold millions to federal, state, and local governments on the need for multi-lingual documents.
These few changes would unleash the power of the American economy, restore freedom, increase our sovereignty and security, and once again make America the envy of the world.
No doubt there is much more I would do, but that’s certainly enough for my first day in office.
