I was never all that impressed with Obama to begin with, thinking of him as merely a Novelty President, someone you just vote for cause it'd be cool to help elect our first Black President but not much else. But on the other hand, it's good to know that he was able to put his foot in the door for a good Black President to know it can be done. But once he was elected I had hoped he'd be hte next Reagan or Clinton...but apparently not. But heres what i hope for the next President (but will never get) Legalize Gay Marriage, nationwide. End The War on Drugs End the Overseas Wars (they have been more devastating to our economy and on human life than 9/11 or any terrorist attack it could prevent) End Taxation On The Poor and make up the difference with Corporate Taxes Get Us Off Foreign Oil and Embrace A Self-Sufficient Energy Policy Work hard on a Two-State Solution Cut Unnecessary Spending Eliminate The Federal Deficit Create A Budget Surplus Create Jobs by encouraging new industries and reduce taxation on small businesses Reexamine Line By Line Our Budget (perhaps allowing popular vote to decide) Enforce a sliding scale on Congress (both senate and house) for their salaries, make them all work for the average income of the people they represent. If you want higher pay, work hard to improve their conditions (or allow voters to determine their salary) and for those who don't need the salary, let them work for free, allowing only those who want to help the people run. Cap or eliminate corporate bonuses and salaries, and let them use the money to hire more people or invest rather than a mansion upgrade universal health care (once we get our economy in order) just a few things lol whats your ideas?
