If you were President, what policies and reforms would you push for? -Abolish the EC -Expand the number of seats in House of Representatives to around 800 (while reducing overall salary) and thus creating smaller districts. Also add a 100 or so seats apportioned proportionally to ensure results like last year do not recur where the party that should have won more votes did not gain a majority -Increase House terms to three years -Establish a nonpartisan electoral commission to prevent Gerrymandering. -Reform Senate so that it is largely a house that can review and delay legislation -Institute a line item veto for the President -Repeal term limits for the President -To ensure that Congressmen don't engage in pork barrel spending, remove decisions on spending appropriation to a nonpartisan commission of economists, demographers, and so on who will determine where spending will go based on income, population, and so forth -Have the Federal Reserve continue its stimulatory policies -Continue aggressively implementing Obamacare, if it fails to appreciably rein in costs a decade after full implementation, move towards a German-style UHC system -Remove the payroll tax cap on Social Security -Devise a "retirement age formula" for Social Security and Medicare that depending on health, type of job, employment status etc. allows one to retire at an age range of say 60 to 70. -Means-test Social Security and Medicare -Raise the minimum wage to nine dollars an hour and tie the minimum wage to inflation -Institute guaranteed maternity leave along with guaranteed vacation time of at least a month -Restrict loopholes and deduction in tax code to a set cash amount -Raise estate taxes back to levels in the '90s, keep the income tax the same (or raise it a bit depending on various factors), institute a Carbon Tax and possibly VAT. Cut corporate taxes and work to eliminate them eventually. -Institute a combined infrastructure-alternative energy bill. Provisions will include repairing currently outdated infrastructure, building an extensive national high speed-rail system, expanding Amtrak services, subsidies to major metropolitan areas for expanding mass transit systems, building dozens of nuclear power plants, and increasing funding for alternative energy research. -Increase funding for the space program with set dates to return to the Moon, establish a lunar base, and land on Mars -Eliminate farm subsidies -End the War on Drugs, legalizing marijuana and most other soft drugs while decriminalizing most hard drugs with a few exceptions such as bath salts. Encourage states to reduce drinking age to 18. -Immigration reform involving a path to citizenship for most current illegals, increased border security, and revise immigrant quotas. Country-based quotas are to be abolished and granting of visas to be determined by income, education level, job, and skills. -Continue aggressively pursuing free trade pacts -Create universal preschool education while expanding the number of daycare programs so that all mothers can afford it -Reform the education system by abolishing summer vacations and instead putting in school vacations throughout the year. Also establish a minimum national curriculum -Expand funding for vocational education and create a Richard Nixon scholarship program giving a full ride to college for the top five or ten percent of students with middle class or lower income -Repeal DOMA and leave gay marriage to the states -Promote voluntary eugenics by offering subsidies for sterilization for parents identified as carrying hereditary diseases or disabilities -Pass a federal amendment banning abortion unless the mother's life is threatened. Also abortions after the point of fetal brain activity shall be treated as equivalent to first degree murder -Leave death penalty to the states but encourage them to restrict it to those convicted of multiple killings. Meanwhile this would enable us to abolish multiple appeals before carrying out a death sentence -Institute mandatory sterilization for sex criminals -Institute universal background checks and increased punishments for straw purchases but no other gun control measures -Promote Western culture and identity by increasing funding for PBS and NPR along with the fine arts and humanities while cutting off funding for degenerate art -Create a Department of Science and a Department of Culture -Cut areas of military spending especially missile defence programmes and conventional forces -Identify Russia and China as primary strategic threats and work to isolate them by strengthening our alliances in Europe and East Asia until they democratize. -Pursue a treaty of alliance with India and institute a Marshall Plan for that country -Work to completely eliminate the current regimes of the following countries: Iran, Sudan, North Korea, Syria, Saudi Arabia. While we won't go to war against them, isolate them as much possible, aid opposition forces, engage in cyberwarfare and a few discreet assassinations etc. -Continue the policy of drone warfare against Islamist reactionaries in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and elsewhere -End the embargo and establish diplomatic relations with Cuba and improve relations with Venezuela while weaning them off the Iranians. -Create a mega-free trade zone called the "Union of the West" incorporating all First-World democracies (so NAFTA zone + EU + Korea/Japan/Singapore + Australia/NZ + Argentina/Chile/Uruguay+Israel) and with India and other poorer democracies as associate members. Aim to create a common currency, defence pact, and political union. -Establish the metric system as the official system of measurement in the United States -Intervene in Syria by enforcing a no fly zone and air strikes but no boots on the ground -Push for a two-state solution in Israel/Palestine with Israel keeping 1967 border plus all Jerusalem and some settlement blocks. Palestine upon independence shall sign a treaty of non-aggression with Israel -Proclaim a "Never-Again" Doctrine that the United States shall oppose any instance of genocide or ethnic cleansing and will intervene unilaterally if need be to stop it.
