WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE PRESIDENT OR PRIME MINISTER OF YOUR COUNTRY FOR A DAY I would do the following:
- I would tax all not for and non- profit organizations including all religious organizations
- I would cut all tax favors for corporations
- I would end the War on Drugs and tax all drugs as alcohol is taxed
- I would pass a universal health care law similar to Massachusetts
- I would cut all welfare and instead make the government the employee of last resort, and within this program make it possible for one parent or adult in a family to be paid to stay at home and care for disabled, aging family members and children under the age of six.
- I would re-establish funding for abortions and contraceptive care.
- Release Pollard.
- Release all non-violent drug offenders.
- Ban the death penalty.
This is all pie in the sky, because our government is not a dictatorship and executive orders have limited value and can be over-written the next day. Still I can dream and the above represents my political agenda.
Assuming, however, that you could wave a magic wand, become president or prime minister and have your way, what would you do? What are you doing to act on your ideas?
