I am thinking of running for President. For the purpose of this fantasy letís assume I would sweep in a supportive Congress on my coattails.
Here is my platform:
1. Complete the mission in Iraq.
2. Thereafter extract ourselves from international political and military entanglements, especially in the Middle East. This includes supporting Israel.
3. Close down many of the foreign located US military bases such as South Korea and Europe.
4. Station American troops on the Southern US border with orders to stop the illegal invasion by all mean necessary.
5. It would be my intention to disband the ATF. However, before doing that I would have them go after the confiscation of illegal firearms with the Black and Mexican gangs in LA and other big cities. Letís see if those fuckers have the guts to take on the tough street gangs like they had the guts to go after Ruby Ridge and Waco.
6. I would get Congress to pass a law forbidding the use of any government funds to a state or city that provides government payments to any illegal. I would also withhold funds from sanctuary cities.
7. Under existing law I would arrest thousands of employers of illegals along with hundred of thousands if not millions of illegals.
8. I would not sign any bill that had one ear mark or pork in it.
9. I would decrease Federal spending by 10% the first year and 15% each year thereafter.
10. For every dollar reduced I would return half to the people in the form of tax breaks and one half to be used for debt reduction.
11. I would get Congress to repeal the part of Davis Bacon requiring that the Federal government pay union wages.
12. Implement the findings of the Moorer Independent study to properly investigate the USS Liberty incident and to hold Israel accountable. Also properly honor the crewmembers of the Liberty.
13. Reduce all foreign aid except in the case of a natural disaster.
14. Require that the United Nations find a world headquarters elsewhere while reducing our contributions to minimal amounts.
15. Repeal the NFA laws.
16. I would substantially reduce government spending but increase it in the area of veteran benefits.
17. Immediately order the NRC to license the new construction and operation of up to 600 new nuclear power plants.
18. Open up drilling wherever there is oil.
19. Apologize on behalf of the United States government to the people of the South for invading their land and killing them. Provide financial restitution to families of Confederates killed by the US government. Establish a National Confederate War memorial and make Robert E. Leeís birthday a National Holliday.
I may think of other things later.
Feel free to comment on my platform or do up your own if you want to add your convictions.
