We should be a good enough people so that laws like that wouldn’t seem necessary.

Sounds extreme, but I'll play along for the sake of discussion, which you wouldn't allow under your dictatorship.

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.

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.

14. Perpetrators of voter fraud should be summarily executed.

I don’t see any benevolence in your dictatorship.

Neat fantasy, but you want to dictate the kind of country that would actually have to be chosen by your subjects, especially with the being armed part. You’re leaving out the human nature part, which is the downfall of any totalitarian regime.

I did enjoy your post, BTW.

Love it, except rule 3. I would allow agnostics, Buddhists, and atheists.

Your recommendation of the churches being in charge of welfare would be perverted almost immediately. Can you imagine a church with the power to handle money led by Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Reverend Wright?
