Dear Mr. Next President

A note to our next president:

Think of all Americans as your family. Your job as head of the family is to ensure their health and safety. How does the head of this family take care of their health? Think of this. If you have four kids and two are sick, that is quite a burden mentally and financially on the family. It becomes the focus point of the family. So taking care of our children should be a high priority for the next president. Free or low cost medical for every child under the age of 18 should be a priority, not just a dream. Be sure our children, the future, are healthy. A healthy body and a healthy mind makes for a healthy nation.

Next, the land. Everyone needs to recycle. Make it mandatory. Make it a high priority and not just a voluntary afterthought.

We need to think as Americans, as one people. What is good for one should be good for all. A fair tax system, a first class public education system, alternative energy sources, all of which are very easy to do if we have the leadership that wants it to get done. Is there money? Yes...

Let's stop sending our money around the world. First of all, we can't afford it any more. Foreign aide should be totally cut unless there is a disaster that calls for help. Second, giving aide promotes dependence. Dependence promotes intervention. Intervention equals imperialism. Stop all aide. Again, we can no longer afford it other than on humanitarian grounds. I don't know about anyone else, but I've never gotten a thank you card from any country that my tax money has gone to for supporting their US "friendly" government. They want our dollars but not our intervention. So just STOP! NOW!
