America is still the greatest nation on planet Earth.  We seem as a nation, however, to be losing our way.  In light of that here are my solutions to making America great again.  Implement these changes and our country will improve immediately.

  1. Laws need to be fair, simplified and easy to understand.
  2. Laws must be Constitutional.
  3. People need to work for a living and stop receiving “lifetime” government handouts.
  4. Government is too large and needs to be significantly reduced in size.
  5. Government and business corruption needs to be severely punished.
  6. Government needs to stop sticking their noses into every facet of people’s lives and stop trying to regulate everything.
  7. Proper morals and values need to be taught.  There is a right and there is a wrong even if the mainstream media doesn’t think so.
  8. People need to take personal responsibility for their actions.
  9. Criminals need to receive harsher punishments and should serve out their full sentences without the possibility of early release.
  10. Criminals convicted of rape, murder, carjacking, etc., should automatically receive life sentences with no chance of parole or the death penalty.
  11. No restrictions or laws should ever be placed on law abiding citizen’s when it comes to owning guns.
  12. The right to protect your home and family from thugs and criminals should always be the law of  the land free from malicious prosecution. 
  13. Laws should protect law abiding citizens, not thugs and criminals.
  14. Border security must be strengthened and illegal aliens must be deported.
  15. Flat tax should be implemented.  Everyone pays the same low percentage regardless of income level.

    I have to agree with your post. However, regarding numbers 9 and 10, lately my opinion has been that we should get away from things like long prison terms. Many gangs consider prison time to be a rite of passage and something to be respected… not to mention the cost to society. I think we should get back to public floggings for the really bad crimes (ex. drunk driving, assault), and the “stocks” for things like theft. Crime would drop dramatically with such painful and humiliating (yet humane) forms of punishment. Of course the absolute worst crimes (ex. murder, rape) would get the death penalty by hanging in a public place. Again, the deterrent would be amazingly effective, and it would cost society almost nothing. Maybe I’ve just been reading Starship Troopers too much…

    Sounds like a great wish list. Unfortunately, most of the items represent the “good ol’ days” that we’ll never see again. As long as the liberal mindset that brought us here continues to prosper in Government and the media, we’ll continue to slide down that slippery slope into socialism and government control.

    As long as mind numb idiots continue to vote in liberals to run our Government, we aren’t going to see anything change but just get worse. We have to vote Liberals out.

  3. At the risk of being labelled a ‘liberal’ our biggest problem is the fact that there is no such thing as a moderate any more Liberals have good ideas and bad ones just like Conservatives. If you want to see changes in the government then quit voting this party line BS, that is what mind numb idiots do. This Liberal/Conservative garbage is what is dividing this country. Just because someone is not lock step with everything that you believe does not mean that they are this or that. If we would take the time to listen instead of slapping labels on people we might just find that we have some common ground.

    Forget what party a candidate belongs to and vote for the best candidate instead of just voting for them because they have an ‘R’ or a ‘D’ denoting their party. Every time people go down the line checking boxes by party they are voting for corrupt and or inept candidates along with qualified candidates.

    As for the criminals, there’s a reason I’m such a fan of the Boondock Saints. If the legal system can’t or won’t clean up the streets I would personally welcome someone actually doing it, so that honest people can walk the streets in safety.

      When I look at the major issues I have opinons on and I view how I would handle them and then compare it to the liberal approach and the conservative approach I find myself agreeing with the conservative approach probably 99.99999% of the time.

  4. That is fine but the question is when you enter that voting booth, do you take the time to evaluate each pair up for election or do you simply ‘vote the party line’?

    I am a registered Republican But I really don’t give a damn if a candidate is a republican or a democrat. I vote for who I feel is the best candidate regardless of party affiliation. If people actually voted that way you would get rid of all this Republican vs Democrat BS. That is what it really is Two groups constantly blocking each other over labels instead of doing the right thing for the people. As long as they can depend on people voting party line instead of choosing the best candidate there will always be a political division.

      I evaluate candidate by candidate but in my area the liberal candidates are always on the wrong side of the issues so I end up voting for the conservative ones who are more in line with my own core values and beliefs.
