    1) Force HP/Verizon to fix the aGPS issue on PrePlus and PixiPlus devices and certify that this will never happen again on any phones. Require the release of 2.x for existing webOS devices on all carriers ASAP! Standardize the public sector smart phone use on webOS.

    2) Require 2/3 majority to pass any law. 1/3 minority vote can repeal any law. All laws require summary statement in 9th grade English certified by a cmte of randomly selected people with 9th grade equivalent reading skills.

    3) Do away with current system of election for congress and senate. All legislative positions to be filled by DRAFT. Barracks housing, communal cafeteria, armed guards - no one gets graft or visitors except for monthly family visits.

    4) Review existing legal code and submit suggested reforms including repeals of duplicate or confusing laws.

    5) Wish I had never run for president and given up annonymity for a pocket full of magic beans!

    Seriously, like Micael hinted at, you wouldn't run on these items. Who actually does things that they run on???? I think the question should have been "If you've just been elected King.....".

    Yup....no doubt. That's why the term limits are SO DANG IMPORTANT. These idiots up in Congress won't touch Social Security because they know if they do, even if it only affects those under age, say, 55, people will start telling seniors they will lose their social security benefits. So, if you weren't going to get re-elected anyway (your term is up), who cares about the scare-tactic people? You do the right thing and change social security so that anyone currently under the age of 55 can't start receiving benefits until age 70...or 72...or whatever will get social security back on track. This way, the old folks like davidra won't lose their benefits!

    Hey, Micael, we all know I'm a pro at doublespeak, look how much I can say on here, without ever actually doing an obvious line cross. So, I'll do the campaigning and get elected, then bring you in as my top advisor.

    Micael....I actually am a Czar! When the Prez of my Rotary Club approached me about handling attendance (no vote was necessary, she would just appoint me), I told her I would only do it IF I could be the Attendance Czar. So, in my club, I'm just known as the Czar.

    Refer to one of my quotes...."It's good to be the King." If you ever saw that movie (History of the World), just a fantastic view when he says that line

    Not commenting on this is tacit agreement right?

    in my club i am know as the photo N A Z I, other wise known as the club photographer. when any of the people offer to take my picture, all they get is the evil look, and I photoshop them outta any pics i take.... So ya i guess I have all the power i want or need. the guys leave me a lone as pics of them and the local pole dancers end up in their spouse inbox, and the ladies leave me a lone cuz they can suddenly gain all sorts of weight and strange blemishes on their faces. the attendance czar in my club allows me to have perfect attendance lol

    im all for term limits be it down there or up here in the great white north. up here we need an elected senate, right now its appointed by the party in power, it is suppose to be a rubber stamp, but more and more its being used to block legislation, ie conservatives in power elected, liberal majority in senate hold up or outright block legislation.
    max two terms for pm and 3 terms for an mp.. no more voting themselves raises, and other benefits. national referendum for all changes in that department.

    I think Canadians PMs should all be required to come from Alberta.

    You would not want to challenge this Czar! We don't have anyone with that much knowledge on photo "doctoring", so we are all safe. I was wondering if the mention of Rotary might cause my favorite Canadian to pop up. Good to see you are alive....a bit cold up there this year?

    Man, I'd hate to see you with real power... like homeowners association president or something.

    okay... explain to me exactly what is good about a flat tax system. is it because paying more taxes because you have more money is 'socialist'? if you have a horse and a cat both pushing a cart, you can expect them to put in the same amount of effort, but not the same amount of energy.

    No can do on the HOA....tried it....people seem to like you when you speak your mind before serving, but once elected, they expect you to kiss their I've never been very good at that, so my term was cut short. Now the local Planning Commission was interesting, but since Town Council trumped anything you voted for, that was a complete waste of time (though I did get the inside scoop on what was going on in my home town).

    The flat tax is better than what we have....but....focus on the Fairtax: Americans For Fair Taxation: Americans For Fair Taxation
