These are some vain thoughts from a "seasoned" citizen about how American Society should be run if I was a dictator. 1. After the 14 foot wall is built and razor-wired with electricity all border guards should be commanded to shoot on sight any attempt at illegal crossing. 2. Every school should be required to have a quota of concealed carry trained teachers in the classroom. 3. The only immigrants allowed in this country should be of Jewish or Christian origin 4. Food stamps should only be used to buy 100 lb sacks of flour, sugar, cured meat. 5. All American yutes should be required to join ROTC and do 2 yrs. service defending our country. 6. The job of our military should be to detere nuclear nuthouse powers not "nation building. 7. Black History month should venerate Clarence Thomas, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell,James Beckwourth 8. All druggies (with the possible exception of Marijuana) should be put in labor camps or in the case of dealers-executed. 9.Any school or institution or professional who teaches yutes that there are more than 2 sexes should be fired. 10. Any athlete who refuses to stand for the pledge should be immediately fired and fined. 11. Any reporter who intentionally lies or distorts the truth should be immediately fired and the network cancelled. 12. Welfare should be administered on an at-need basis by local churches. 13. Every American should be required to own a firearm and be proficient with it (preferably a semiautomatic AR-15) I could go on and on with my more radical ideas but this will suffice for now.
Okay, I think I'm just going to go read someplace else since this is now apparently vanityrepublic.com
You need to run for President. Course I’m just another old fart and no one listens to me.
We should be a good enough people so that laws like that wouldn’t seem necessary.
Well, were not. Although there are still some God-fearing segments in our society, for the most part we are going the way of Sodom and Gommorrah.
I still believe that there are more “Good Guys” than bad guys.
And, I believe our Tribe is growing!
HST, We The People have our work cut out for us!
In that vain, how do you expect to become the "dictator" to be a able to carry out all of your "fantasies"? At the point of a gun?
Because unless you are Maduro in Venezuela, or Castro in Cuba or Little Fat Boy in North Korea who control the elections in their favor through armed force and intimidation, you would never be able get elected the way we do it here. Which dictator in history do you aspire to emulate?
You probably don't see the irony is wanting to be a dictator in a country that was founded on freedoms, which your "dictatorship" would eliminate.
Remember, absolute power corrupts absolutely. Without checks and balances, laws, and proper institutions in place, tyrants and dictators will consolidate power and cause a tremendous amount of suffering and death to its populace.
My advice is to go back to sleep and dream of some other way to "rule" the country that prides itself on individual freedoms and limited government.
Im only going to be a dictator for a day. After that we can go back to our democracy
We elect school board members who promote homosexuality in our classrooms. We elect zoning commissioners who prevent small businesses from sprouting. We elect mayors who assume tyrannical powers to regulate what soda we can drink and force landlords to rent to undesirables. We allow judges to legislate and legislators to oppress.
WE do that. And the scum that floats to the top simply takes advantage of us. We don't need a dictator -- even one with good ideas. We need a people who vote their conscience and refuse to be bullied by political correctness.
The Old Farts Party, it sounds like an idea whose time has come. Why leave politics to those who exhibit worn out ideas which, as Reagan said, belong on the ashheap of history, constantly repeated by uneducated kids and halfwit losers looking to shock the adults? The thing the Founding Fathers feared is here, mob rule, we can change this cause we’re damn near dead and we aint afraid. As our testosterone levels drop we are now able to think with the big head, something that our present politicians, from all indications, lack the ability to do.
We won’t need term limits cause God takes care of that, on our taxpayer funded phony info gathering trips, our jets won’t have a wet bar only Depends and Ensure. Think of the many ways we can save the taxpayer bucks. I am in, Old Farts unite.
So you would possibly not imprison or execute pot smokers?
Man that ship has sailed
What about booze.
Execute the Coors and Busch families....hey...we can be the McCains in AZ
14. Perpetrators of voter fraud should be summarily executed.
15. Labor camps (if they are lucky) for those who oppose these initiatives.
Lar ? Lar Daly ? is that you ?
you forgot castrating rapists...
Points well-made. Thanks.
Roger that! :-)
“WE do that. And the scum that floats to the top simply takes advantage of us. We don’t need a dictator — even one with good ideas. We need a people who vote their conscience and refuse to be bullied by political correctness.”
So how do you do that?
Formatting would help..... JMO
In other words, I try to make it known that not everyone is a mindless drone repeating the left-wing mantra.
And of course, I vote for pro-life, pro-Christian, pro-America candidates wherever I can. I refuse to buy products from companies that jump on the left-wing virtue signalling bandwagon. Most of all, I try -- often unsucessfully, I'll be the first to admit -- to live my own life according to the principles I profess. Honesty has to start with me.
