DAILY POST CHALLENGE

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE PRESIDENT OR PRIME MINISTER OF YOUR COUNTRY FOR A DAY  I would do the following: 

  1.  I would tax all not for and non- profit  organizations including all religious organizations
  2. I would cut all tax favors for corporations 
  3. I would end the War on Drugs and tax all drugs as alcohol is taxed
  4. I would pass a universal health care law similar to Massachusetts
  5. 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. 
  6. I would re-establish funding for abortions and contraceptive care.
  7. Release Pollard.
  8. Release all non-violent drug offenders.
  9. 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?

  1. First thing I would do is cut all our political parties in half. We have too many which keeps giving us minority governments. Yeah America..Cana da cripples itself because whoever won the election did not really win unless they get into bed with the opposition and a thousand other mini parties.
    I would strip down the multiple justification layers in the Ministry of Health and create a leaner system focused on actual provision of care. I would pull every nurse sitting behind a computer or heading up committees all day long and get him/her back at the bedside. I would streamline reporting to one basic one instead of different reports on the same information to different branches of the Ministries, the LIHN..don’t even ask, and corporate offices.
    I would……oh..okay I must stop now because I could take a lot of space and a lot of time…GRRRRRRRRRR
    Oh my do you think you touched a sensitive point with me! GRRRRR
