I believe president Obama is doing a good job but I believe he has not gone far enough, There are four things he still needs to do. Institute a draft - This will help stabalize the army and help rebuild US military image. It will also help deter the crime rate and help alot of 20 to 30 year olds get off the corner and into more productive paths. Institute a small business plan with no credit restraints. Limit 100'000 dollars but must have business plan. -This would help turn around the economy with new innovations and new energy. Reform Health care -They are very close with this one but they must lower cost and maintain good coverage. I believe this will get done. Institute a USA store all over the world selling USA souveniors from History and today. Sell the Obama souvenors all over the world and make some of the money the hawkers are making. Stock the Embassies across the world with interesting gifts and start promoting. In the US alone, Obama souvenors make 1 million per month and across the world,they make over 10 million a month. Across the World, there is an upswing of Americanism. This will not damage our credibility, it will enhance it and continue to build upon our theme as the land of opportunity and home of the free. These four things, along other with other govermental implementations, will keep America progressive and at the forefront of World Events for a very long time.

I disagree completely with having a draft. Yes some of the lazy young people will have to do something with their lives, but why should any person be forced into something that they do not want to do? Especially if it is something that could cost them their lives, the last draft was during the Vietnam War I believe and that did NOT go well at all, and there are enough mothers in the U.S that are losing their children everyday, who were once tiny babies that they held in their arms and dreamed about their futures. So why do that to more mothers whose children did not choose that path of life? What is the triumph in forcing someone to be a soldier when they do not want to be one?

I have to say to your first idea of instituting a draft dreadful, no offense. What really needs to be done is slowly pulling out all troops while we still have somewhat of a reputation left. Adding many more troops will just make other nations grow wary of us and increase their military in preparedness for our downfall. Besides, our economy can't handle many more troops in the military. The military and defense funds take up most likely around 25-40% of our total budget. Adding more military is definitely not what we need right now. It has proven to be a long 8 years over sees and we are just throwing too much money away on this. Also, 20 to 30 year olds do not need war to get them productive. In fact, war can cause great stress to people, not help them. I do agree with you on Healthcare. We can't have 50 million people uninsured and it doesn't need to be run with profit in mind. This is the good health of human beings we are talking about, not a thing we should make a profit of. A propaganda technique like a souvenir shop selling American trinkets may actually improve our image, or it could make everyone think we are made of cheap plastic. :P

Hate to burst your bubble, but Obama souvenirs are not selling that well right now. Your man's polling is at 42 percent right now, not good for a president that's only been in office for six months. I heard you can find Obama souvenirs at Big Lots for a dollar a piece. If Obama instituted a draft, you can guarantee he will not run a second time. He has pissed off people enough pushing this healthcare debacle. Please start watching Fox News, and not MSNBC. Communism will not help America, it will destroy it.

wow. I cannot believe that you seriously think that they need to institute a draft. You must be too old to get in it yourself then huh? I dont want my fiance getting shipped over to Iraq for a war that I think has gone on way too long for reasons that I wont get into. There are more than enough people wanting to sign up for the military right now but they are being very picky about who they let in now. Not all 20 or 30 soemthing year olds are worthless you know? There are many of us who have full time jobs and work for a living and deserve to live free from government force. I think that a draft right now would be a horrible idea. Especially since we dont need it right now. The government healthcare system will not work. I think it will end up being a failure. I somewhat agree with the business plan situation that you suggested. but there should be credit restraints. Dont hand over 100,000 for people who have bad credit. That is what got us into the economical struggle that we are in. People borrowed money that they couldn't pay back. You have to be careful who you put money in the hands of. And most small businesses have a life span of about 5-10 years. so I dont think that they could pay back that type of funding within that time limit and have a for profit business. People need to get over that he is a black president and actually focus on what he is doing. They support him for the wrong reasons. So far he has come through on NOTHING that he has promised. so we will see.

I echo the distain for a draft of the other posters. Before even thinking about a draft, we should close bases incertain areas and bring the troops home. Obama has yet to come up with any kind of policy concerning military troop strength. So far, almost every policy has been "stay the course" from the Bush administration. I find it interesting because he was such a critic of Bush's policies. Health Care reform may be needed, but nothing about the bills being considered now have anything to do with lowering costs or maintaining good coverage. I like your idea of the US Store. That does have a lot of merit.
