    Put religion back in school. I don't mean teaching only christianity but about all religions and if a student group wantsw to start prayer meetings on campus let em. Seems like secularism isn't working.

    I would banish all laws except the Constitution and rotate the elected and appointed officials.

    That way there would be no more corruption in office, and only a Constitution to start over with. This would give us focus on how to be correct in our foundations once again, and stop the decline we have created already.

    It may only buy us a little time before we are at this same point again, but I am confident it is worth doing.

    It creates a focus on the highest document in the land as it was intended to be used, but hasn't been in over 50 years.

    Our National Anthem, I'd change it to Freebird.

    EDIT: oh that and I'd kill Whitey!

    sorry, it's a great question but I needed to have a laugh before dinner.

    Amend the Constitution to read that while judicial review is great, judges may not make up their own laws - they may only judge on the constitutionality of existing laws and either affirm them completely or strike them down completely.

    Life means life.
    No statuate of limitations for rape, assault and battery.
    No early parole.

    No kids pagents for a child under five! (or older)

    Gasoline at .99/gallon.

    Free transportation for seniors.

    No adopting a pet without education first. Too many end up in shelters months later.

    Tipping a wait person is mandatory or else, the or else is at the legal discreation of the person 'stiffed'.

    Drunks are responsible for their own stupidty and cannot sue the establishment.

    Anyone who files a frivilous lawsuit that is determined as such will be subject to heavy fines just for wasting time.

    No car tax.

    I know you said one thing but I cannot! I think if I had to choose, I would have to say no statuate of limits for rape....but I still have to change all above.
