I'm an American. I'm proud of that. I think even with all our faults our country provides the most opportunity and self expression of any in the world. That being said there are things that need to be fixed. 1.) Properly fund international intelligence services. 2.) Only engage in one theater of war at a time. 3.) Seal the borders to all but political refugees and those that arrive through standard legal channels. 4.) Require English literacy to obtain a driver's license. 5.) Audit the entirety of the US government budget and cut a minimum of 10% of the fat. This includes a revision of the miltary contracting structure completely. 6.) Require higher MPG on all vehicles built or imported into the US 30 MPG minimum. 7.) Implement clean elections(max contibution amounts, etc.) for all levels of government including the presidency. 8.) Institute term limits on the House and Senate of a max of three terms in each branch of congress. 9.) Re-write the tax code so that your average person with a high school diploma can do their own taxes with ease. 10.) Implement the line item veto to disallow pork. Those are a few things that need to be done in order for the company to flourish. All in all the US government needs to be run like a business. It needs to operate in the black or a least only slight bleed red each quarter. Until we take care of this stuff we'll never reach our full potential.
