Your own political party
« on: June 27, 2004, 05:21:57 AM »
I don't know if this has been done before...

If you could set up your own political party, what would your program look like? Don't make it too long because I still wanna feel like reading everything. Just make a couple of points you'd really wanna spend your time on if you were a politician.

Also, what would you call your political party? Would you like to have politicians in your party who are actual politicians right now?

The elimination of income tax
The elimination of all entitlement programs (Wellfare, Social Secruity, etc.)
The elimination of foreign aid
The elimination of all government regulation of buissness
The leagalization of all victimless crimes (Drugs, Prostitution, etc.)


Maybe I'll post more later, but this is the just of it.

so ur government is gonna run on business and purchase tax?

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

Picking up the ball from inside his own half, the pint-sized Argentine skipped past challenge after challenge. Always appearing to be on the point of tumbling, he was miraculously able to retain his balance before rounding Peter Shilton and slotting the ball home for a goal manufactured in heaven.

1) Government regulation (and therefore "free") Schools, Hospitals (Medical Care), Universities, and natural resources.
           
             There would be less money lost due to fraud and we wouldnt have to worry about government's intervention, because they
             would already be regulating these areas.

2) Trust-Busting Teddy Roosevelt politics. Because large corporations run America.

3) Less foreign aid to Israel (They get 97% of our aid)

              Our help to Israel is a large reason for the Terrorist acts on 9/11.

4) Change electoral college system to a system of Popular votes (I hate the current electoral system)

5) Less foreign intervention (I know this one is vague, but you get my idea).

6) Equal rights to men and women

7) Elimination of Affirmative action (If all schools were funded comparibly we wouldn't need affirmative action in the first place)

8) Elimination of all taxes other than the income tax (Make it one large percentage, around 40 or 42 %). For expedience's sake!
                   This way we would have less bureaucracy.

9) Government funded exploration of new forms of fuel and less money spent on space exploration.

10) Public works projects (like during the depression) would create lots of jobs.

...........OK i realize this is virtually impossible in modern day America. A little too reminiscent of the pre-depression to depression United States. But if u think about it, the years of 1900-1929 Were some of the best in United States history. Everything was progressing and we had the policy of No Foreign Intervetion in effect. a more socialist government may conflict with a modern day american's psyche, but in my opinion, it is an optimal form of government.

No, I wasn't.

But I was talking about a political party for my own country, not for the United States.

More money to:
> Schools (education)
> Arts and Culture (music, art, etc.)
> Security (police, not army. "so you'll get usefull violence")
> Socialisation (or sumthin'... anyway more money to get to know eachother more, more open discussions.. and more possibilities to get your "luck")

Less money to:
> Foreign countries
> Globalisation of "your" country (the influence of Coca Cola/McDonalds and so on)
> International corporations have to pay more tax

How I would name my party? Erm.. "Freedom & Luck For All" or ehm.. "Joined luck-chasers"

Mr. Mauzip, cool idea of this topic!

Tsjaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

1. Have equal spending on public schools, so that kids in lower class schools get the same education as kids in rich schools. I know that I will catch hell for this, so hear me out first. Also, to tend to the needs of lower class students, give them more school counslers, so that one school counsler is not overwelled by the problems of many students. Many intercity kids are dealing with drug addict mothers, no fathers, abusive homes, so create a way for this children to be found, whoever is needs help no matter the class, but especially in poorer schools, and set up programs to help the student recieve a good education so that they can help themselves when they grow older, and give them alternatives to gangs. That would be the main platform of the party, to reform education and not put all the pressure on the teachers, have a true "No Child Left Behind" bill.

2. Universal Health Care, but through privite companies. The reality of the United States, if money is to be made, then big business will make it. They will not lay down just because it is better to have a working Universal Health Care system. So include them into the mix, and make sure every U.S. citizen has health care, especially children under 18. All children under 18, even non U.S. children, can go to the doctor, free of charge, no matter what. All elders can get free medication, free doctor visits, whatever they need. Elders, children, greatly ill people, and emergency all get first, grade A treatment paid for by the government. Everyone else can have government paid for health care, proved by any company you want, whatever, it's your chose.

3. Increase military pay, increase military and bring back all vet benefits Ronald Reagan took away, but decrease military spending by focusing less on war, and more on peaceful solution. In otherwards, we have the most advance and powerful military in the world. No one can mess with us. If it so happens we get over 50,000,000 people in the military, we will pay them great wages, but we are not trying to send our soldiers to war, unless someone does something like drop towers in our cities, or bombs us, or is sinking our civilian ships. In cases like that, yes, we go to war, but also try to smooth over relationships with other countries surrounding the area, keep peace with the rest of the world, and not start wars over nothing like misguided information about weapons, or what a leader did 20 years ago. Also, end embargos on countries like Cuba, and instead of punishing countries, help them. You get people like Castro madder at you by being their friend than by punishing them. Don't let them get too close, don't give too much trust, but be their friend.

4. Keep the damn budget balanced. Find a way to make sure the budget is balance, and pay off all debt.

It should be legalized.  The government is spending so much money to keep it off the streets of this supposedly free country.

So how would kids from families with no money be taught?

Wouldn't this make society even more unequal?

some stuff off of the top of my head...

pro-abortion (to a limit.. not late term sht.. )
pro birth control
anti death penalty

- govt. backed basic housing for everyone provided at a standard rate. this would lead to reductions in homelessness etc
 
this would all be of a standard quality but provide only basic facilities.
perhaps to set of standard templates depending upon family size to keep things fair.

e.g. a 2 bed house is for 2 or 3 people, not 1.
e.g. a 1 bed appartmen/house. is for 1 person, maybe 2.

of course privately if people can afford to rent or buy something bigger, they can do what they like.


these wouldnt be crammed together too much.. they'd be arranged in a hexagonal system so to everyones 'rear' is a garden. so housing would be in clusters. these would also take advantage of modern water recycling, and energy collection techniques.


- govt. provided health, dental care, education at all levels BUT alternatives are allowed to exist if people can afford to go private.

- transport would not be govt funded. (uk govt has lost major money this way in the past, esp through the rail system).
would up the taxes for people who own more than one vehicle as a deterrent.

- abolish the seperate govt agencies police, army, navy, and air force and all combine them into one force. a mergnig of what i see as rival establishments into a more effective force.

- govt. sponsored jobs program. where the unemployed *have* to work for the govt if they dont have a job.
perhaps in my 'new govt system' or something.

- prisoners would work to keep themselves where they are, or opt for education (where they'd still have to work a bit as well)

it's been about 2 years... and I finally got somebody on my nuts!!!  :D

first - I didnt insult him or anything, in fact I told ppl they shouldnt mock on him no more.. which is pretty kind I think.
2nd - at least I didnt proclaim he doesnt shower, and I also didnt make a whole thread about it.

what's next? you gonna tell me my sig is too large?

Regarding my own country,the Netherlands:

More strictness regarding foreigners and less procedures for them,so less bureaucracy
Less foreign aid (especially to the Netherlands' Antilles).
More powerful police force.
Education more pointed at teaching kids something about the world they live in,meaning more education in history,geography,biology and even theology (though I'm an atheist,as I'm sure most of you know...it would increase tolerance though if kids knew more about other's belief.)
No positive discrimination of ethnic minorities
free medical care
Z knows about ALL your inner conflicts..
