    Realisticly, who would you like to see as the next President?

    Please keep it to someone who realsiticly has a shot. Feel free to post who'd you'd like that wouldn't stand a snowballs chance in hell, but if you do try and post someone who realisticly has a good chance as well.

    I don't want to vote for President. Presiden'ts are largely powerless. I want to have a dictator for 4 years. Somone with absolute power to fix everything thats wrong then we can return to the usual system.

    The dictator should be trustworthy to repair the damaged parts of the government, which I alllow is most of it. ANd he should be aware that he will be shot at the end of his term if he doesn't willingly step down.

    I suggest he roll back all laws made after 1901. He can add or remove laws from that starting point. He should dissolve all government agencies that have become unnecessary beaurocracues (kind of redundant isn't it?) and shut down the socialist programs that have made a large section of society beggars and sheep.

    He should send home the career politicians, all of congress, the senate and the judiciary. They can be replaced with new elections in 2012. ( and hopefully better individuals)

    He should abide by "The U.S. Constitution" [Reverent organ music sounds] and assure it is followed in every state.

    He should get rid of the FBI, BATF, IRS, BLM, ACDA, BIA, DHS, FDIC, OCC, FCA, FWS, GwoB, INTERPOL, TSA, USDA, and FSA for starters. (maybe just get rid of all acronymed agencies)

    He should give the finger to OPEC, the UN, and George Soros, he should make all the people that said they would leave the country after the last election do so, he should never provide social programs to illegal aliens, he should control the borders, he should allow drilling in ANWR, he should BBQ PETA.

    HE should be........welll, ME! [nobody else I'd trust]


    Smoke for Dictater in 08!

    I solemnly vow to only serve one term and then return you to your regularly scheduled system of government.

    Smoke

    Those who have a "realistic" chance wouldn't be popular here, that's for sure.

    I suggest that those who do have suggestions or opinions keep in mind that form is more important in the end than substance. Getting elected is a deal with the devil.

    I have no interest in anyone I can think of who has a realistic chance.

    The only current national political figure I could vote for is Ron Paul.

    I don't know that they can proactively select someone, but they can certainly determine which candidate gets the most money to run. Campaign finance reform is not a completely repulsive idea.

    I would give the next president a better than even chance of presiding over the collapse of the United States. Too much paper and not enough durable goods production. Too many service jobs that aren't really necessary but are around when times are good. Too many " take care of me's".

    A bit premature to be making a personal selection, other than who I DON'T want as President! That list includes:

    Hillary Rodham
    John Kerry
    Al Gore
    Charles Schumer
    Al Sharpton
    Jesse Jackson
    Louis Farrakhan
    Osama bin Laden
    Jacques Chirac

    Believe it or not, but I wouldn't mind it if Mel Gibson became pro-active in politics! He was born in New York, so he IS a U.S. citizen. We didn't do too bad with that other actor fella, Ronald Wilson Reagan!

    Actually, he'd be elligible even if he were born in Australia -- his parents were citizens, so he was a natural born citizen.

    The idea that the president must be born within the borders of the USA is a common mistake. Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 requires that the president be a "natural born Citizen," not a native born citizen.

    Methinks it will take about 10 years realistically to set up things up, hire the correct people, clean house methodically, restructure the political and economic system, and then strengthen everything to allow continued success.

    The post should be Imperator and would allow only one term of office, ever, for the holder and all his descendents, to preven hereditary problems.

    Me (or somebody like me) for Imperator! :D

    There are historical precedents - the Roman Republic had the post for times of extreme peril. With the war on jihadists, illegal invasion, and crumbling economy, I'd say the nation is in extreme peril...

    But, realistically, it will not happen, because no decaying society ever avoided long-term problems by conscious intelligent choice.

    So, Hail Hillary, those about to crumble salute thee.

    :barf:

    Smoke,
    That's exactly what happens to republics. Things stop working, graft and self centered politicians take over. Some powerful and well liked person stands up and becomes dictator. Then the SHTF.

    I do think well see that happen here. As soon as the terrorists use a WND anyplace in the West the sheep will go into a panic.
    Me I hope I never see it, but I'm not optimistic.

    Now, to keep the thread on target, I'm for Dr. Rice. I don't see her as a RINO.

    Oh - wait - you want someone who actually has a chance.

    There is in my opinion not a single serving politician in the US today who is both deserving and capable of serving honorably and competently as President of the US.

    The system is broken, the apples in the current barrel too rotten. SERIOUSLY! Dump the lot and start over.

    Sooooo...
    I guess that leaves ME!

    I promise to serve only one term (however long that may necessarily be).
    • I will eliminate pork in the budget,
    • bring the troops home,
    • solve the illegal immigration problem,
    • rid the world of terrorists and the dictators that support them (don't need troops abroad to do that - think about it)
    • issue executive orders re-establishing the BOR's as they were meant to be
    • will not execute or enforce stupid laws (I reserve the right to decide which laws are stupid but will entertain suggestions and recommendations from my loyal subjects - errrr - the people)
    • will make sure that congress stops blackmailing the states with stupid threats to with hold federal funds
    • will eliminate :evil: career politicians from the congress (they can leave voluntarily or - well - not... think lots'a fun target practice)
    • slash the federal employment rolls to the levels necessary to efficienty administer the national defense and national land management functions which are the only real jobs of the national government .
    • Income tax will become a flat 15% - that's it - you earn 1000 you pay $150 - you earn $10,000,000 you pay $1,500,000. Income to be defined as any money or other asset that you acquire during a calendar year. No deductions, no loopholes. Any money left over at the end of the calendar year will be returned to those who paid in the previous year. Try to screw the system and I'll screw you (yay! no more tax lawyers and most bean counters get to learn new job skills!
    • the IRS will become an auditing and tariffs/fees collection Agency
    • Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms will become a convenience store chain.
    • Force Congress to establish a fast track appeals court that only deals with death penalty cases. Each death penalty would get one automatic appeal to the court and if upheld would be executed within 7 days. The execution would be public and be televised by all visual media live. This would make the death penalty an actual deterent.
    • The infirm and mentally challenged would continue to be cared for by the state - all others are free to freeze to death in the dark - or not - as they choose.

    And that's just in the first YEAR!

    Any other suggestions for my platform?

    Werewolf for PRESIDENT in 2008! Hoooooooowwwwwwlllllll!

    I'd like to see the 22nd Amendment repealed and George Bush get another term. He's my number one guy.
