I'd put more into education...other than that I don't see what I major things I'd do as president.

Education education education. I don't think the government should allow companies or the loans that the government gives for education should have high interest loans. It should be like .9% or something like that. THe education that we get will help propel this country, economy, and the people of this country. When a doctor gets their education, it helps everyone, when person goes to college for criminal justice so that they can be a cop or work for the secret service, they are doing the society a favor. 

Education in my opinion is not enough of a priority in this country.

You're using test scores as your point, but you want to control what students are taught.

Also how we handle crimes. I think that nonviolent crimes should not get 2 to 3 years or jail time thats for sure. Also I think that those who do crimes should have to work. 

We send a lot of our companies overseas for cheap labor. How about keep those jobs here and have those that are criminals work in those companies for cheap. This would allow for there to be management positions with good pay with a job here in the U.S., but get cheap labor out of these criminals. They would have to pay for themselves taking up a place in the jail. Less taxes taken from the public and companies would stay in the U.S.

Everything is made in china . I agree with prisoners in certain industries . I think one draw back to your plan would be the liablitiy factor . I can't imagine companies taking a risk to make Wolf Gang puck knives unless they where non violent first time offenders .

Yes! That would be great..wonderful! College should be made affordable. Stop with the debts. Sweden can have good schools from start to finish, why can't the US? A child receiving a good education benefits us all. No reason for a parent to have to struggle to send a child to a private school just to get a decent education. Totally unnecessary.

- The very first thing I would do would be to pass REAL universal health care.  People could choose private insurance companies for their insurance if they wanted to, but everyone would be covered.  I would sign a law that would put limits on how much hospitals and doctors were allowed to charge for medical expenses.  There is no reason why someone should go bankrupt for going to the emergency room. 

- Education, for the most part, would be centralized.  This would go for school funding as well.  If schools do not have the resources needed to teach the children, the government should supplement it so they at LEAST have up-to-date learning materials and equipment to succeed.

- I would ban the teaching of creationism in public schools.  Students need to compete with students from other countries and teaching creationism just takes away from studies that could help them compete.

- I would raise taxes on the rich.  Most likely, I would reinstate tax rates from the 90s...possibly higher.

- I would end tax breaks for companies that have moved jobs overseas and place high tariffs on products that have been made overseas by these companies to force them to come back to the United States.

- No more privatized prisons. 

- Decriminalize drug use and legalize marijuana and LSD.

- Abolish racial profiling.

- Truly make a system where suspects are tried by their peers in the case of African Americans.  Since a lot of whites can't be trusted to sentence black people fairly, black people should have the right to take care of it ourselves.

- I would make it a federal crime for states to discriminate against who should run for elections.  Some southern states refuse to allow atheists to run for office. 

- Repeal the Patriot Act.

- Repeal NDAA.

- Sign an Anti-Police Brutality Act that would take away police power to just get away with whatever they want. 

- Do more to protect the environment, including harsher penalties for companies that do not meet environmental standards while in operation.

- Legalize euthanasia.

- Sign a federal law for gay rights so that they can marry, pass property on to their loved ones when they die, visit them in hospitals, raise children with their loved one, extend health care and inheritances to their loved ones.

- Encourage states to go through their state laws and strike any archaic laws that are no longer enforced.

- Repeal Voter ID requirements.

I was watching the Rachel Maddow show and Chris Matthews said , if a person has been waiting on line for 4 hours to vote, I'm pretty sure that person is who they claim to be. 

I agree with his statement. Who is really fraudulently trying to vote? One person said on the show that they should require fingerprints to vote That way there won't be any discrepancies about who the person is.

Ok so in states like Pennsylvania, Fl, and Ohia, they cut the hrs down for early voting, hoping that forcing people to stand on line for hrs on end would deter them from voting. Didn't work, thank God. 

Here's a quick article I found. Not too long either:

Voter misdirection seemed to be the order of the day for the 2012 election.

In Virginia, Florida and North Carolina, Latino, African American and elderly voters received phone calls telling them they could vote over the phone by providing their name and address to the caller. Other voters in Florida and in Washington, D.C., received robocalls telling them the election was Wednesday, not Tuesday. In Ohio and Arizona, government authorities sent notices announcing the election was on Nov. 8 instead of Nov. 6. In Pennsylvania and Arizona, voters were left messages directing them to the wrong polling places.

As disturbing as it sounds, this purposeful voter misinformation looks relatively benign in the face of reports of voter intimidation. For example:

-- A group of poll monitors in Ohio was barred from the polls after they took photos of voters as they entered the polling place and recorded their names on tablet computers.

-- Latino and African American voters in Florida reported receiving phone calls saying that poll workers would be checking their car insurance and registration status when they arrived at the polls. In other cases, voters waited in line for four to six hours to vote.

-- Voters in Pennsylvania showed up to polling stations to find signs saying photo identification was required - when state law says it is necessary only for first-time voters.

When it comes to voter turnout, the United States is an outlier among advanced industrial democracies. To strengthen our democracy, Americans should be actively working to end these restrictive laws and to find ways to increase voter participation - not restrict it.

These varied attempts to restrict eligible voters' access to the polls are part of a larger movement to repress the vote of certain voters. Since 2011, 19 states have passed laws that restrict voter registration efforts and establish voter identification requirements - laws that the  http://www.sfgate.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=opinion&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=Brennan+Center+for+Justice" rel="nofollow - Brennan Center for Justice  estimates will disenfranchise the 11 percent of eligible voters who do not have a government-issued photo identification.

Although many of those laws were not in effect in 2012, laws in 13 states were in force for the 2012 presidential election. The  http://www.sfgate.com/?controllerName=search&action=search&channel=opinion&search=1&inlineLink=1&query=Republican+Party" rel="nofollow - Republican Party  backed most of these laws, largely because the party realizes that demographic trends make it impossible for them to remain a majority party absent this type of voter suppression.

Girl,Bye. Id be the best president ever. Im not for the wealthy few on this here website who orders EP, Indique etc. I am for those who might only be able to afford what is sold in the BSS. That is ok. I am trying to move everyone up the ladder. Expand the middle class. Give those who are poor the opportunities necessary to get them out of that situation. Its about main street and not wall street.

Belle Femme for President, 2016.

women's rights, poverty, health care, and education.

but honestly, a position of that magnitude is beyond my scope, so I'd humbly resign.

could clarify belle, i never really looked too deeply into voter/national id and voter suppression in the states.

how did it work?

Ok so in states like Pennsylvania, Fl, and Ohia, they cut the hrs down for early voting, hoping that forcing people to stand on line for hrs on end would deter them from voting. Didn't work, thank God. 

Here's a quick article I found. Not too long either:

Voter misdirection seemed to be the order of the day for the 2012 election.

In Virginia, Florida and North Carolina, Latino, African American and elderly voters received phone calls telling them they could vote over the phone by providing their name and address to the caller. Other voters in Florida and in Washington, D.C., received robocalls telling them the election was Wednesday, not Tuesday. In Ohio and Arizona, government authorities sent notices announcing the election was on Nov. 8 instead of Nov. 6. In Pennsylvania and Arizona, voters were left messages directing them to the wrong polling places.

As disturbing as it sounds, this purposeful voter misinformation looks relatively benign in the face of reports of voter intimidation. For example:

just to piggy back off of this, I spoke about suppression last week & couldn't post the link I was referring to because it was not yet available online.  Well now it is for all those that are interested.  Washington Watch comes on TVone Sundays @ 11:00 a.m..  watch Black Enterprise @ 10 just b4 it too.
