    End the wars

    Balance the budget

    End secret prisions

    End the DoE

    End Homeland security

    Look at SS, MC/MC

    End welfare

    Get Government out of HC as much as possible

    Let people be free to make or break themselves

    Free the American people

    Then look at the tax code and the possibility of lowering taxes and ending taxes on all business’s/corperations.

    We could outlaw the Democratic PArty.
    Oh you want serious.

    We could tax the Democratic Party to death.


    It's actually not complicated. We need to create incentives to work and invest and do away with things that create disinentives to work and invest.
    99 weeks of unemployment benefit is a disincentive to work. The highest corporate tax rate in the world is a disincentive to invest. A complex tax code that requires paid accountants and lawyers to comply with it and find ways around it is a disincentive to work and invest.
    So:
    Simplify the tax code
    Lower taxes across the board.
    Adopt a flat tax
    Reduce benefits to people perfectly capable of working
    Eliminate any subsidy to manufacturers in the name of "protecting" anything.
    Strengthen the rule of law with tort reform, to encourage risk taking.

    Repeal Obuttheadcare.

    Repeal the current financial regulatory "reform".

    Abolish cap gains & death taxes, as a precursor to repeal of the 16th Amendment and abolition of the income tax.

    Privatize Fannie & Freddy and get the feds out of the banking business altogether.

    Eliminate the foreign military installations where the wars have been over for decades, in advance of bring ALL of America's troops home to defend our own borders.

    CUT (as opposed to reducing the projected baseline increases) spending by no less than 15% across the board, in advance of abolishing the Departments of Energy, Commerce, Education, HHS, Fahterl...erm...Homeland Security....

    And that's just the short off-the-top-of-my-head list.

    That'd free up lots of money in the private sector to fuel economic growth.

    Tax incentives, instead of increases, for new businesses to open in THIS country.

    Replace income taxes with a Flat Tax

    She's rather surprised at the good ideas folks on this board have.

    I'd be surprised if she has any of her own.

    You know the drill....

    Liberoidals ask "where's your plan?"...Then when you give them one, they shriek about how you seek to throw the poooooor out into the streets, starve the chiiiiiiilllllldrrrrreeeeennnn and make gramma eat dog food.
