  • I'd make an excutive order to change anything(laws etc...) that does not honor the Constitution the way it was originally written by our Founding Fathers...and yes this does include the health care bill and the s510....and turn Our Country back to "By the People For The People"....not by who can pay the most to get their way...

  • If I were President there are so many things I would like to change..... although I am sure the Congress and the others will not be very happy and would probably Veto everything I suggest.

  • Nothing. Mainly because the President alone can not change anything alone.. Congress gets to make the changes, the President gets to say yay or nay to them. The President can suggest something, ask for something, however ultimately Congress decides whether it's going to happen or not.

    People who are running for President make a whole lot of promises. Promises that they know they can not guarantee, promises that they know (when they state them) that they most likely can not/will not keep. Yet people believe them over and over again.

  • Shrink the size of the federal government as quickly as possible...then begin to shift regulation to individual states according to their needs. If you knew your history, you would know that when any government begins to control the individual to any great extent, it begins to implode with absolute predictability. After doing all of that, I would part the seas to reassure myself that I was still immortal.

  • I'd make it mandatory that anyone who runs for President, and is already a Senator, is REQUIRED to attend all Senate and House hearings, instead of skipping every single one, so they are prepared for the job BEFORE they get in there, with not a clue what they are supposed to do, and end up putting us in even worse times than we were before.
