If I was President....My Platform
Original post made by Common Sense, Danbury Park, on Dec 14, 2011
Make all presidential candidates draw from a public fund.
Make the needed common sense adjustments to SS and Medicare.
Cut existing public pensions and future public pensions to a point where they are solvent.
Hire the best and toughest cost cutting-budget experts to go through the entire gov't and eliminate all the waste in every facet.
Simplify the tax code and raise taxes on the wealthiest and make sure that all but the poorest of the poor pay something.
Set up a program with cooperation between the gov't and private enterprise and rebuild the infrastructure of this country.
Establish some type of national teacher training academy,make teaching a desirable profession by raising standards and pay to attract the best people.Our educational system is failing and has to be fixed.
Take a new look at our role in the world and realize that we need to take care of our country and its problems first.
Rebuild our manufacturing base.We need to be able to build things again.
Sit down with the ceo's and retired ceo's of major corps and cut out all the b.s and decide what is needed to get them creating jobs here and not overseas.
Immigration....to be continued
Before you all start insulting me....What is sad is that every one of these things needs to get done,dem or repub...it doesn't matter,but we are unable to do ANYTHING.I am so tired of seeing nothing but name calling and complete total dishonest b.s.Everyone has to sacrifice to get us out of this rather dire mess.Nobody is willing to.Pretty soon it will not be a choice.There will simply be no money.Our high schools have about a 25 % drop out rate.Our society is in jeopardy and all we can do is refuse to compromise and sacrifice and make tough choices.500 bucks says that if there are 20 comments on this post in the next several days there will be name calling and insults...just like congress.We are pissed at congress but do the same thing.
