You're supreme leader of the US for one day. You can only make three policy changes, but these policies last 100 years. What policies do you implement?

Campaign Spending Reform (Undo Citizens United)

Eliminate the TSA. Everyone flies naked.

OK, I can compromise on the third one. But every time I get a genie wish, superpower or any other all powerful grant, at least one has to involve nudity. Just a personal rule.

Why didn't you just ban empirical evidence and logic? That would have had the same effect and you still would have had 2 more policies to implement.

We'll take it case by case.

But a good credit history and no addiction to Oxy's goes along way. 😂

How can you outlaw a natural phenomenon?

JennaB Mother

So you plan on expanding renewable energy and cutting our pollution rate?

Jenna, it's not a natural phenomenon. I would love to outlaw all this crap that's happening because of human-caused climate change. Unfortunately, it can't be done like that.

Balanced budget amendment
Overturn a case from way back in the thirties that allied the federal Gvnmt to reach into every state's business. Return power to the states except for those proved to Feds by constitution.
Make every president have on his cabinet a scientific advisor and another in mathematics/logic

JennaB Mother
12/17/15 4:41 pm

You can only choice three. I personally like the fourth one about a science and mathematics advisor.

I only saw three. She was returning states power by overturning the amendment.

Overturning the case not an amendment.

Free public college, nationalize the Healthcare system, and bring an end to SuperPACS while also placing a political donation limit.

12/17/15 7:24 pm

How are you paying for all of that?

JennaB Mother
12/17/15 7:32 pm

Budget cuts, mostly in defense spending, increased taxes, ending the costly war on drugs and wars in the middle east.

12/17/15 9:48 pm

And your plan to defeat Isis with all those cuts?

JennaB Mother
12/18/15 4:46 am

Let Russia spend 10 years and trillions of dollars.

12/18/15 6:04 am

I might agree. But they don't have it. That's how Reagan finally caused the downfall of communism, getting them to spend against a perceived threat from us, which finally broke them literally.
