Changes America Should Make

There are lots of things we love about the US, but there is a lot to be fixed.

The Top Ten

1 Stop Illegal Immigration

There are way too many people coming into the country. Just because their own countries are too violent or poor for their own happiness doesn't mean the United States should take them in and cradle them. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

But the real question is, who on earth would want to come to America when it's nearing an inner-crisis. Like save yourselves, don't come crashing down with us. - cjWriter1997

So untrue. Are you really bent on making life hell for anyone who wants to come to America. - Songsta41

And what would be legal immigration? Someone who's asking before a wall of solar panels if he can come in to work? Someone who's skincolor has to be white? Someone with a Harvard degree ( separation of working classes )? Someone like Ivana Trump?

2 Get Rid of the Debt

Get rid of a debt is for politicians taxing more the people of their own country, making everything that we really need more expensive etc... As long as they don't have to give money of their own fat pockets, that's what politicians do.

Or at least stop creating more debt. Yes, I am looking at you, democrats. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

They are heavily in debt of China. Solve these to get rid of the tension, which bugs me. - MChkflaguard_Yt

We need a Republican to do this.

3 Expose the Lies

Finally something we can all agree on, however it is ridiculous to pin dishonesty solely on one party. They all spin, massage the truth, or outright lie. One study noted 935 false statements publically made by Bush and his top aids about Iraq in the 2 years following 9/11.

When Bush said "I recognise similarities between Iraq and Vietnam", what he meant was "I think they're the same country". - PositronWildhawk

Since the Media is dominated by democrats, all we here are positive things about how it's going. Their should be more republicans so the lies of the democrats are exposed. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

4 Export More Than Import

That's stupid economy thinking. If you export too much you will get more productivity in your own country which will raises the prices of your own products. Also, you think that all countries outside the US will agree to import US products? Why should they lower down their own productivity? Why should they give less work to their own people and more work to the people of the US? Import-export should always maintain a certain equality to maintain a product / price similarity with other export countries. More export will give more work in the US, give higher prices and therefore less buying-power for the working class. The reasoning for more export will only benefit for the big industry bosses to get richer.

Do you know how much our economy would benefit from not buying things from China? - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

5 Teach Religion In Schools

Also untrue. What about the atheists? You can teach reading and math, but you can't teach a belief. There's a good reason why it was banned. - Songsta41

Perhaps less likely to commit traditional crimes, but more likely to commit horrendous atrocities in the name of their faith. More likely to subjugate. More likely to repress.

Christianity had its chance at ruling the people. We call it the Dark Ages.

Not. At. All. No way. Religion is a belief, which you can't teach in schools. That's why atheists like myself are glad that religion isn't in schools, a place where "God" doesn't have a place.

The kids at my school are forced to learn religion in history. - naFrovivuS

6 Concentrate On Economy Instead of Wars

Exactly! Stop getting us into unnecessary wars and focus on the economy and the environment!

War is economy. Why do you think America go to war?

7 Reduce Pollution

Why did the United States elected a clown then ( yes, I'm talking about Donald Trump ) that doesn't believe in global warming and therefor in reducing pollution? Changes America should make? But it seems that a majority of Americans don't care about reducing pollution. " Don't care " or maybe they are just plain and simple " stupid ".

I agree

8 Impeach Obama and Those Like Him

He has violated the constitution over 200 times, which is more than any other president in history. He has also broken his oath to protect the constitution. Not only this, but he has brought about more debt than all of the past presidents combined. Obama created a program, Obamacare, which could turn out to be the worst and most devastating government program of all time. Also, he is allowing tons of immigrants, even illegal ones, to disperse throughout the country. This will just create more Democrats who will vote for more presidents like Obama. We better pray for God to bless us, because we've got a deep hole to dig out of, and almost no time left to do it. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

I actually agree with you on impeaching Obama. However, he is not the only president who has violated the constitution. George W. Bush has violated it through his creation of the Department of Homeland Security. He was also the one who raised the national debt by spending more money than he received through taxes, and he was also the president who hurt the economy and created the recession. Obama seemed like he was responsible for the recession since he took office at the time the recession hit, but recessions usually take time to have an impact on the economy. Again, I do not really support Obama, but I want you to know that we had presidents who are just as bad as he is.

Based on your understanding of the other topics on this list, you being against Obama is evidence enough that America made the right choice in 2012.

I'm not even going to start on how bad Obama is. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

Debt before: 6.32 tril. Debt after: aprox 19 tril. - SoldierOfFortune

9 Stop Taxing the Rich & Benefiting the Poor

If you do that you will get very soon 80% poor people. What is the economic benefit if only 20% of the population are able to buy? I think it's also really unhuman to do something like that. Not everybody has the chance to make expensive studies or go to expensive shools and universities. Everybody is making and needed to make a contribution in this world. Even a waitress ( and believe me, they work very hard ) is needed in a society. Who will give the coffee at the 20% financial Lucky ones? Respect of humans is more important than money! Never forget that!

It's hard to believe you're a Christian if you think that everyone should just fend for themselves. Proverbs 17:5 Whoever mocks the poor insults his Maker; He who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished.

Honestly, do you not have compassion? It doesn't matter what situation that person is in, a druggie, homeless, jobless, a dropout. They deserve a chance. Everyone deserves a chance. - keycha1n

Taxing the upper classes so that there is money for the poor only creates MORE poor people. It makes the middle class poorer. That's why America no longer has the richest middle class among countries. Because of Democrats who vote and crap to 'help the poor'. Even If they are poor, they should be made to live on their own and fend for themselves just like everyone else. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a life - SoldierOfFortune

10 Improve the Quality of Education

The Contenders

11 Increase Death Penalty Killings

Not only does it cost more money in the United States to put criminals to death, but statistics have clearly shown the death penalty is completely ineffective as a deterrent to crime. States that still use the death penalty have no less crime than states that don't. What's more, there is a very good chance at least one innocent person has been put to death which is more than enough justification to abandon a practice that already doesn't work.

The death penalty does not really save people money. It actually costs more than life imprisonment because it is a long, complex process requiring the defendant to go through multiple trials.

Can't agree with that. It's banned in my country for a reason. - PositronWildhawk

It will stop crooks

13 Get Rid of Money in Politics
14 Allow Gay Marriage

I think they have the right to marry. It doesn't harm anyone, and that's one of the things I don't agree with that is from the Bible. - Minecraftcrazy530

Thankfully, they now allow it in all 50 states - Ajkloth

It is allowed now. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

It's not marriage. I'm not saying that you shouldn't be gay. I'm just saying that marriage should only be between a man and a woman.

15 Journalists Start Reporting the News Rather Than Become the News
16 People Who Run Businesses, Companies and Corporations Stop Treating Their Employees Like Dirt
17 Stop Atheists from Banning Religion In Politics

Freedom of religion means you can be a part of any religion you want, and no one will punish you or discriminate against you if you are an atheist. Also, "God" who I don't think exist, myself being an atheist, doesn't have any place in our economy which runs fine without "God". - Songsta41

Yeah, they don't need to. The constitution already makes it so that religion doesn't effect politics. But they shouldn't stop someone from having their own religion - SoldierOfFortune

Yeah we were built around Christianity but other religions and atheist are allowed in but not to change are laws - 2storm

Religion and politics should always be separated. Who wants to live in a theocracy? ( exept for some religious freaks ) Just look at the islamic states where laws are based on religious concepts. This are the worst countries where freedom of individuals aren't consisting. Religion and politics separated is also what gives choise of freedom of religion because a theocracy gives only one choise ; theirs!

18 Get Rid of Both Democrats and Republicans

Come to think of it... This might actually not be that bad. Why even have parties that are so divided? Everyone knows that everyone's going to end up siding with one... And that's the one that gives them money. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

And what is your alternative? Anarchy?

19 Reduce Poverty
20 Stop Spending Money On Israeli Military

I wish Israel just got erased off the map... Damn terrorists whom NATO are funding. - Cazaam
