    If you were crowned king for a day, and had full executive and legislative powers by decree in the United States, what single law would you pass or what single law would you repeal? Similarly, since your term of office is restricted to one day, what single amendment would you add to the Constitution or what single existing amendment would your repeal?

    First I would get rid of the National Endowment for the Arts.
    The Poet Laureate would get the boot also.
    I would require NPR to get new theme music.

    I thought about it and I don't. I like rule by consensus and law; subverting it doesn't appeal to me.

    Drawing from my embarrassing lack of knowledge on how the legislature works, I can only say I would turn as much of our country Libertarian as I could. Thanks!

    Make abortion an act of murder - once and for all with an irreversible law.

    Carpo, I wouldn't want the headaches.

    But what I would do is pass a law that would grant a monthly stipend of $2,000,000 for all ex-Kings. :D

    First thing I would do is order the horsehair to be replaced with a length of chain! ;)
