    People Before Profits Law. Make it permanently illegal for lobbyists (and related professions) to work prior (within the last 10 years), during or after serving office (within 15 years of leaving office), Medicare For All, Fight Climate Change, Push for Clean Energy, make it illegal to give donations to any politicians, affordable PUBLIC higher education, make it illegal for politicians to do insider trading, etc.

    End all support for the terrorist nation-state of Isreal until they get rid of that hardliner Netanyahu.

    I would also push hard to declare the interstate highway network 100% complete and no new routes can ever be built. I would permanently kill off that costly unneeded extension of I-69 from Indianapolis IN to Laredo TX. I would raid the highway trust fund for public transit and bike path funding.

    I would yank all funding to California, Illinois, and New York as justified punishment for voting for that pathological liar Hillary rotten Clinton.

    I'd work with this boy to help rid our oceans of trash islands: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-29631332

    I'd also help as many outreach programs for homeless youth to get as many kids off the streets as possible.

    Finally, I'd classify Scientology as a cult in America.

    Jump start the Congress. Presidents aren't supposed to DO anything other than insrung that the congress etc is doing its job. Obama set a bad precedent of executive order King which we now are paying the price.

    ^
    Obama was in no way King of Executive Orders. That was just Republican media propaganda.


    Stick with the FACTS:

    Obama had 276 Executive Orders over 8 years.
    Bush 291, Reagan 381, Nixon 346, Roosevelt 3,721

    I would immediately pass a law that allowed me to remain President forever. Then I could do SO much. The list is endless...and quite fun. One guy had a good idea on here...send all the guys on this site with whom he disagrees to North Korea. I would not need to do that. The law that I would pass would simply impose the death penalty upon ANYONE who disagrees with me, displeases me, or upsets me in ANY WAY on ANY SUBJECT. And the penalty would be imposed immediately...no trial or anything...just immediate execution!!!!icon_twisted.gificon_biggrin.gificon_evil.gificon_cool.gificon_wink.gificon_exclaim.gif

    I'm amazed with some of the right wing, self-absorbed vitriol eminating out of this -1-topic
    If I were president for a month.
    I would tackle population control with a law that no one could have children before the age of 30 and then just two.
    all energy would be carbon neutral solar,wind, wave etc
    All drugs would be legal and sold by the government but when a person wants help they get it immediately upon asking
    colleges would be tuition free
    healthcare would be single payer. Anyone making over 10% of the medium for their family size would pay 75% tax rate. People making
    5% less no taxes
    Retire the electoral college!!!
    Fake news and alternative facts outlawed with severe punishment.
    Doctors, scientists, the facts, explorers of space would be lauded with celebrity.
    Athletes, actors, social media stars, singers, dancers reality stars would not receive the focus of fame.
    Those are just a few
    Oh hey this exercise was futile but now you know

    You have that all wrong, it is all you Hillary supporters who would be shipped to North Korea for your "stay in the mountains".

    If I am the US President (or a president/Prime Minister of any country) I would like to:

    1) Reform public schools.
    2) Put a cap on the amount, university can charge as tuition fees.
    3) Invest in public housing.
    4) pass stringent laws that will make it harder for rich corporations to avoid paying tax.
    5) Invest in green and sustainable energy and cut down on pollution and gas emission.
    6) Reform public transportation including bike lanes so more people are encouraged to use wide means of transportation as opposed to cars.
    7) Push for nation-wide laws that will end discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity in housing, employment, and public services.
    icon_cool.gif Pass stringent measures on gun control and gun violence.
    9) Encourage self sufficiency measure that encourages one to grow one's own food and provide subsidies for growing plants more trees.
    10) Create a business environment where small and local business do not end up being swallowed by multinational corporations.
    11) Decriminalise use of cannabis.
    12) End capitalisation of healthcare.
    13) Renegotiate draconian trade deals that results in war and displacement of people and creates massive refugee crises.
    14) Uphold and respect treaties signed with indigenous communities to not repeat the tragedy of Dakota Access Pipeline.
    15) End for-profit prisons.
    16) End militarisation of police forces. Hold police accountable for uncalled aggression.
    17) Invest in art, science and culture.
    1icon_cool.gif Encourage agriculture.
    19) Promote work-life balance with mandatory paid vacation time of at least 18 business days, 10 sick days, substantial maternity and parental leave and profit sharing with employees.
    20) Stringent consumer protection laws.
    21) Protect Flora and Fauna.
    22) Renounce war and use military for aid and defence only.

    You are definitely living in an ultra leftist fantasyland. Where are you going to get the money to fund all your free government services and tuition free education. Retire the electoral college, that is a horrible idea because the three high taxed, corrupt states of California, Illinois, and New York would rule the roost in every Presidential election. The last thing this great country needs is to have those three dysfunctional asshole states determining the final electoral outcome. Since you are such an extreme leftist, probably you should emigrate to Venezuela, the premier socialist paradise of the Western Hemisphere.

    Appoint myself a Supreme Court Justice. It's the only job security you can be sure of.
