If you were the president, what would you do to try and turn this mess around? I'm serious! Everybody has a plan. Let's hear it. I realize the president can't do it all, but what's the plan? Be realistic, ok?

So far all I hear is the uninspired babble of the Mark/LOL confused dual identity poster who can't answer the question and resorts to being one in the same person with the privilege of approving his own posts. Everybody wants to bitch about what a president should be doing, but who has a solution? Other than to resign and declare it a lost cause, what would YOU do as president to make it all work? Stand and deliver. Stop laying the blame on everyone and give us the story. Sure, it's easy to complain and point fingers, but I don't hear anyone coming up with a panacea. You say you want a revolution? The ghost of John Lennon and I would love to hear the plan.

Impeach the imposter now

United States

First impeach the imposter in there now with

Their national health policy's violation of the free exercise of religion with respect to the practice of abortion;

Their national security policy's violation of the 4th Amendment (unwarranted NSA data mining);

Their military policy's suppression of militarily innocuous religious practices by military personnel, in violation of the 1st Amendment;

Their social policy's enforced acceptance of homosexual marriage, disparaging and denying the God-endowed rights of the natural family, which the Constitution's 9th Amendment plainly forbids;

Their immigration and border security policy's failure to take care that the laws are faithfully executed, in violation of Article II.3 of the Constitution;

Their policies for the national defense, in particular their decisions flagrantly to sacrifice the lives of American military and diplomatic personnel, as well as the increasingly egregious failure to maintain the nation's strategic nuclear deterrent, all in evident disregard of the goal set out by the people in the Preamble to the Constitution, "to provide for the common defense";

And their persistent moves toward the general disarmament of the people, in violation of the 2nd Amendment prohibition against infringing the right of the people to keep and bear arms.

All these policies, and the malfeasant actions and activities to which they give rise, constitute high crimes and misdemeanors within the meaning of the constitutional language that specifies the terms on which the U.S. House and Senate, respectively, may move to impeach and remove civil officers of the United States. The people around the country calling for impeachment are therefore fully justified in their demand. Moreover, the number (and insolent willfulness) of ongoing offenses more than justifies the conclusion, being reached by an ever-growing number of Americans, that these high crimes and misdemeanors are part of a "long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object" which "evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism."

Are you dense or just plain old home talk stupid? Like I said, what would YOU do as president. It would be hard to impeach yourself, now wouldn't it, you half cocked blunderbuss. Instead of being obtuse and embroidering the question, why don't you just give us a very simple answer: WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE THE PRESIDENT????????? Let me get out my Crayons and draw you a picture, my verbiage inflicted friend. You are so busy copying and pasting that you have missed the simple and basic question. Did I stutter with the original question? I don't think so! Again, for all you rabid posters, the question is: WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE THE PRESIDENT? Quit harping and answer the question.

The book of Revelations is fullfilling. The great nation will fall. Mankind is destroying its self. Be ready my friends. God is on his way. Maybe not today, or next month, but he will surely come.

The answer is really quite as simple as looking at past and recent history.

I would rely on recent history to see that a nation divided is a nation that is doomed to fail. I would open my doors and encourage bipartisan input in solving the most pressing issues our country is facing such as health care, immigration, the economy, etc. When Washington unites, so will the people.

I would rely on past history to see that immigrants built this country and made it what it is today. I would embrace our immigrants' desire to live in our country, yet still require them to fulfill stringent requirements to become an American.

I would rely on recent history to see that we live in a very diverse country with regions that have different "personalities." Instead of forcing the will of the federal government on the states, I would acknowledge the fact that what is good for California and New York might not be good for Texas and Tennessee, etc. I would cede more power to the states to do what is right for their own citizens and remove a majority of federal government intervention into states' rights.

I would rely on past history to see that most failed societies succumbed to a loss of values and morals. I would bring together leaders from all religious faiths and non-religious practices to seek ways to maintain our morals and values, both religiously and non-religiously, while still being respectful of others who do not share those same beliefs.

I would encourage economic growth through jobs. Our country's strength was gained through manufacturing and we must eliminate or modify those treaties, pacts, laws, etc. that stifle business development in our country. I would work to make it affordable to once again operate a business in the US while still ensuring that employees' rights are protected, yet not extreme.

Instead of being divisive, I would work towards unifying our people by seeking different perspectives to solve problems instead of shutting the door to other possibilities besides my own. In other words, I would do the opposite of what Obama has done the past five years.

Every President since John Kennedy has been bought and paid for by the shadow govt consisting of a few large corporations and major banks. Kennedy tried to buck them, and they killed him.

All the rest since then have toed the line and danced to whatever music they were told to dance. Presidents are merely actors playing a role ( and in George Bush's case, he couldn't even read the script that well )

Voting for any of these clowns is a waste of time. You are given "the vote" to foster the illusion you have some participation in the direction things are going, when, in fact, you have none.

I wonder if you really understand the magnitude of the question that you asked? The very fact that you felt the need to ask it should speak volumes about the direction Obama is leading our country. Very Soviet Union-esque wouldn't you say, comrade?

It fairly easy to be cynical, especially when it comes to the Warren Commission findings, and to simply throw up your hands. I urge you to review Jim Garrisons findings broadcast on national television in the 60's.(you'll find it on youtube)

I'll think you'll come to the same conclusion I did. Not everyone was in on it. Garrison describes the major actors. In particular disaffected Cuban loyalists. That Oswald was their patsy is debatable but like many things in life, behind the scenes, you'll find a group of vested interests and an even smaller group of idealogues. I'm a little less cynical now knowing/believing that the entire nexus of U.S Government and major busines interests were in collusion.

Ed, you said it well. I applaud your post. When Kennedy decided to challenge the Federal Reserve..........well, we know the rest of the story. You have a level headed approach, got a plan?

Sounds like a good plan, Book. Thanks for a real response.
What do you think of the former gvt. regulation of oil prices? It worked then, but that was then. I'd sure like to see it enacted again, along with some stiff taxes on imports. Where's Teddy Roosevelt when we need him? Time for the trust busters to come back to life!

Yep, I agree. But what's your solution?
