Writer's Block: Following the leader

Let's say you're running for president, and you win by a mudslide. What would you change about your country and why? Would you make new laws? Paint the White House blue? Tell all!

Nobody who thinks the way i think could ever win any race for any public office, so the fact that I had won, and in a landslide would be a miracle.  Because, in myu campaign, i would have called bullshit on the entire economic, political and social structure.  I would have suggested that deliberate non-action is always preferable to half cocked action. I would have called  for a new tax code which taxes wealth rather than poverty.  I would recall that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness were the inalienable rights of all human beings mentioned in the founding document.  I would have advocated a cease fire and a cessation of covert operations in all places where they are occurring.  I would say that i want a full scale rehabilitation of the infrastructure.  If i were elected by a landslide vote, it would mean that the country no longer needs or wants a president or a government.  It would mean that the vast majority feels that they could do without government  and they are willing to trust the eightfold path and the wisdom of the ages and ancients as their sole guide to public and interpersonal life
