@Bender I hate Priuses too but damned if I don't drive one. The gas savings allow me to BMA. 50mpg, c'mon son!
Why am I not surprised?

Screw the self righteous propaganda.

If members of the Church Of Electric Cars truly wanted to save the earth, they would all be driving a 53 Beetle because all of the “carbon pollution” made from manufacturing it has already been recaptured by the earth. Not driving a car that takes more energy and resources to make than a Hummer H2.

Hypocrisy and Virtue Signaling.

I hate them.

Adding to the above:

Jail time for anyone bringing frivolous lawsuits.

No more hashtag, indentifying, MSM, social media, looking for reasons to be butthurt sort of bs. And have consequences when there is.

Don’t fuck with the electoral college.

A couple years of compulsory military or civil service.

Our military's new motto would be that we only fight people once.
You all have crystallized my thoughts very well, so I really have nothing to add. However, this quote by @TheGerman is one of the best I have read. Absolute truth and one we should absolutely adopt as our doctrine.

I live in AZ and as one rancher said, “we could fix illegal immigration in no time...it would be the bloodiest few weeks in American history, but we could fix it for good”.

My old boss bought one of the pure electric rechargeable cars- quite proud of his part to save the environment. I promptly pointed out that here in Texas our electricity comes from burning coal, so it was worse for the environment than my 1977 Bronco. Pretty sure he almost fired me on the spot.

as much as i hate to say it the reason america is the world leader/"best country" are the relatively small swings left and right over the years.
seems to be as of late the left has been getting a bigger share, which is screwing things up

first day in office:

take out the rule book: 1 out of 5 laws passed since 1970 get crossed out.

if you have 5 good ones in a row (which can happen) 2 of the next 5 have to go.

start there and then add the good ideas.

Good ones from everyone.
Mine would be abolishing ATF and DEA and repealing all gun and drug laws. Anyone incarcerated for those offenses would be pardoned (for those offenses only).
All future crime will have the following penalties. Murder, rape, and child abuse/molestation will be a death sentence, with one appeal 6 months after conviction, if the appeals court confirms the conviction, execution happens within 72 hours afterwards. All other felonies will be punishable by public flogging or caning. The number will be 1 lash for every two months that would have formerly been spent in prison for the maximum sentence possible with the crime you were charged with. Misdemeanor offenses will be punished by public humiliation, such as the stocks, or by caning/flogging, at the judges discretion, and based on prior history. Repeat offenders would be declared habitual offenders, just like habitual traffic offenders, and future crimes will be handled as felonies.
Two term limits for congress, with no retirement and their pay is the national average +10% to cover travel expenses. Their travel will be standard commercial, not government funded. Congress will live under all laws they pass, no special laws for them, and no exempting themselves from any law.
End all charity programs at the federal level,including any subsidies to any entity or individual. All charity would be handled at the state/local level.
End all foreign aid.
Repeal the Patriot act and NDAA.
Repeal the 17th.
The tax code would be changed to dividing the federal budget by the number of citizens and that quotient is everyone's tax bill. Withholdings are eliminated. Your taxes are to be paid one week before election day. That would quickly make folks re-evaluate what is actually needed government services.
Build a southern wall. Find and deport every illegal in the country. A $10,000 per day, per person fine for every illegal found working at any business, for the first offense. 2nd offense is a 5 year revocation of holding ANY business license,plus the fines are tripled.
All citizens will serve a 4 year term, in the military, or as a police officer, fireman, medic, or nurse.
All lawsuits will be attached with a loser pays proviso. Repeated frivolous lawsuits would result in a felony charge for the plantiff and/or lawyer.

I'd start by shaving my goatee. Then, I'd shave my mustache all but a 1inch strip right below my nose. I'd get some black hair dye, and dye that little "stache" black.
I'd give stirring loud screaming speeches in front of millions, and show these stupid fucks what a real modern day "Hitler" looks like. Maybe round up some malcontents and send them to "Uncle Chikn's bed and breakfast with free delousing".

Hey, you asked. I'm getting tired of some of this crazy shit in this country.
They want to "find Hitler"? Keep it up, cause this is the atmosphere that creates that kind of "man in charge".

Empower and resume executive order 11110. Use our nation’s military and intelligence might to expose every root and leaf of the treasonous conspiracy. Launch a campaign to enlighten the public to the plot. Prosecute agents as they emerge to resist. End the Federal Reserve, criminally prosecute those responsible. Then extend the effort abroad, give no quarter, hunt them down and bring them to justice.

Dude...you'll need a tiny mustache like mine for all that work.
I'd offer to share power with you but......"there can be only one".

That may upset a lot of them.... BUT... if you really want to have them flip out, go insane and start foaming at the mouth:

Get on stage behind a giant cross, with you dressed as Moses, and in your speech say "Jesus Christ" as many times as possible, and sprinkle it liberally with "Christ", "Godliness", and references to bringing the country back to worship Christ and follow his teachings...

Then sit back and watch their heads explode...

Restore the protections and checks and balances the Founders created:

If you eliminate the 16th and 17th amendments the ship will right itself.

The 16th will force the Federal Government to cut back all the Unconstitutional programs and live within it's Constitutional boundaries because it will have to exist on an earthly budget instead of the unlimited one it now enjoys. The Federal government will also become beholden to our economy since their ability to just tax us for whatever they want will be eliminated. Socialism will disappear entirely once force is removed from the equation.

Repealing the 17th will restore federalism, and the states legislatures will no longer be rump, municipal governments with no power, but reassert sovereignty over their state's territories. Making the Senate 100% beholden to the States will reduce the size of government by half alone.

Fix these two and we will be ok. Don't and civil war is inevitable between now and 75 years.

Yeah but remember our demographics are not what they were when you were young. We’re doomed to become a majority of minorities and traditional America values are out the window.

We need a mechanism to build better Americans with a sense of duty and responsibility. A national goal and a complete shift towards the Right culturally. That’s a multigenerational process.

Here's what will fix nearly everything when it comes to voting.
You must be a property owner. That means a minimum of .19 acre with a single family dwelling on it.
Renter, nope.
Lease, nope.
Sub-lessee, get the fuck outta here.
Apartment or condo, see above about single family dwellings.

You must vote in the state where your driver's license is issued.
No valid, verified driver's license, no vote.
State issued ID? Meaning non driver. If you don't meet the home owner criteria, you're SOL.

Must be 21 or over to match gun and alcohol laws. 25 would be even better.
You must be gainfully employed, retired or verifiably disabled.

Public assistance disqualifies you.

I'm sure I could come up with more but I'll toss in abolishing 16 and 17.

would declare national ex lax day . the nation really really needs it for maybe a month at the end of that month a collective sigh and silent prayer that , that would never be needed again too many people are too wound up over everything . life has got enough tough real problems to worry about little things.
