    1. Reduce the deficit (and interest payments)
    2. Save Social Security (follow Debt Commission)
    3. Save Medicare (follow Debt Commission)
    4. Stop illegal immigration (put troops on the border)
    5. Audit the Federal Reserve (rein in "Helicopter Ben")
    6. Defund Obamacare (save States' money)
    7. Reclaim State powers (from overreaching Feds)
    8. Decrease Defense spending (lots of waste there)
    9. End the war in Afghanistan (waste of blood & treasure)
    10. End foreign aid (we can't borrow any more)
    11. Increase taxation of the rich (to the Clinton era rates)
    12. Regulate business (limit bonuses, stop outsourcing)
    13. Regulate unions (...to fair wages & benefits)

    Good answers on a personal level, but I'm looking more for political goals you'd like to see completed.
