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 Changes America Should Make

1 Stop Illegal Immigration

Rid nation of all republicans! The nation and world would be a safer better place as per actions not words. Republicans are all terrorists egotistical masochistic sadistic bigots racists fascists war mongers hateful as per actions not words.

I'm a liberal but I still think that was a tad bit harsh. But I do agree that a lot of republican can seem that way. - 0w0uwu

What about the Mayflower? When the first people from Europe went to a new country where Native Americans lived. Don't you celebrate a holiday in November called Thanksgiving, eating a dinner similar to Christmas, watch a parade, sports.

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

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

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

Give the money back to the people and enterprises. They do a better job with it than the government.

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

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.

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

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

The ONLY way republican'ts win is by lying cheating stealing. See 2000 election, 2004 election, 2016 election. 2018 election all working with the terrorist Israelis and Russians and terrorist Saudis and dictatorship Chinese. The only good republican is a dead one!

4 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?

5 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

This is stupid

6 Teach Religion In Schools

So you don't have R.E. in American schools. Religious Education.
It's not just Christianity its global religions.
Nowadays they could end Atheist teens from doing subject if it irritates them and just let people who like learning global religions take the subject. Just write some paper work title it either "I hate religion" "I like learning global religion/my religion is" Sorted. The angry atheists can do something else.
I'm not religious but religion doesn't irritate me like most of the internet.

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.

7 Get Rid of Donald Trump

He's terible everyone in school thinks he's terible they would say the worst musicle insterment is donald trumpet! and he's does not respect no one not even the millitery!

Noncey item - Puga

8 Reduce Pollution

No, republicans, climate change isn't "liberal propaganda". It's SCIENCE. - RoseWeasley

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 ".

USA has far less factories than China and still manages to pollute the second most! - MChkflaguard_Yt

I agree

9 Improve the Quality of Education

We should change our education system completely, it has proven so many times what our schools are doing to kids, let us be honest what did school do for you good and bad? How could it have changed for us?

10 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

Yes. He has done poor decisions and has done enough damage!

The Contenders

11 Get Rid of Money in Politics
12 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

How does giving money to the poor Robin-Hood style widens the rich-poor gap? - MChkflaguard_Yt

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

13 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.

Change the way the prison systems are set up by design. They need more educated people to teach them how to learn to live in there but most importantly how to live rightful as they return to society by adding teachers,counselors and psychologist to study the belief an childhood background to understand how they operate to be able to make positive progress when released so they won't have that institutionalized mind set when they get them to find where they could go to live or jobs lined up an,most important active in church while in prison and bible studies and getting them ready for a,good church to attend before getting out...some ideas, but make it,more like a learning and rearranging the way they use to think will make a big impact on not having them reincarnated again..

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

14 Practice True Separation of Church and State

Remember that old document people like to wave around when talking about their God given right to bear arms (but conveniently forget the mumbo jumbo about a militia)? Yeah, that one also has a little something to say about your God, mainly that he has no business in government.

And as such, religion should stay out of schools including the teaching of a ludicrous creation "theory" (in quotes to distinguish from the scientific definition of the word theory as in the Theory of Evolution). Religion should also stay out of our laws. Banning gay marriage because of what it says in the Bible is unconstitutional and the courts are finally warming to that. Hopefully death with dignity will be not too far off and we can abandon the feudal banning of the practice because you won't get into heaven.

On a different note, the irony of this list is that every item added by the original poster illustrates how they are what is wrong with America. It embarrasses me that people around the ...more

This I agree with! This has recently been put to practice when the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage! This is starting to happen! - DueslistofX

15 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

Gay marrige should be legal. - Turkeyasylum

16 Enforcing Gun and Weapon Laws

Yeah, this makes a lot of sense. Let's take away everyone's guns so criminals won't be afraid to rob houses, as they'll know no one can defend themselves. And taking away guns will so decrease violence. I mean, it's not like criminals will just start getting their guns illegally. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

Japan: very strict gun laws, very low murder rates
USA: lenient gun laws, a high murder rate - MChkflaguard_Yt

17 Reduce Poverty
18 Improve the Quality of Music

I'm really tired of saying this every time I see an item like this, but this is subjective. - Jasmine21064

Realise that its your opinion.

Yeah, way overdue.

19 Journalists Start Reporting the News Rather Than Become the News
20 Hospitals Hire Doctors and Nurses Who Actually Care About Their Clients and Patients
21 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?

22 People Who Run Businesses, Companies and Corporations Stop Treating Their Employees Like Dirt
23 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

All those comments by religious freaks makes me sick!

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

24 Stop Spending Money On Israeli Military

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

25 Stop Bullying Each Other
26 Make Good Diplomatic Relations With Other Countries
27 Schools and Colleges Start Hiring Administrators, Teachers and Professors Who Know How to Care About Students
28 Innovate Medicine and Medical Technology
29 Ban the Theory of Evolution

Eve: Well I don't know what bad/wrong/evil is so I will eat the fruit. (How many types of fruit are there in the world besides an Apple? ) Do you want some Adam.
Adam: Ok.
God: Get lost!

Noah: But God I'm 600 years old, how can I build a wooden ark?

Jonah: How am I gonna get out of a Whale?

Blah blah blah Thou shalt not kill thou shalt not steal.

So you're going to take logical science out of our schools. We evolved from other types of humans who evolved from primates. You can believe evolution doesn't exist all you want, but the proof is there and you can't argue with clear proof and you DEFINITELY can't take logic that affects all of ours lives ever day out of the equation. - Songsta41

Kiteretsunu: #1. It's DARWIN'S finches. #2. Dinosaur fossils have nothing to do with evolution. They are species that were just wiped out long ago. #3. The NEANDERTHALS were not separate species, but humans that had been isolated from others for so long that they developed odd characteristics. They could still reproduce with normal humans. #4. The peppered moth's evolution is called MICRO evolution. That exists. We're talking about MACRO evolution, which is species to species. #5. Chimpanzees and Monkeys don't even have 1/100th of man's intelligence, spirit, ideas, feelings, and more. DNA does not mean anything. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER

Banning a theory ( from the greek word " theorema " meaning " speculative knowledge " ) or theories is the beginning of fascist methods. If you can't even speculate in a free country it would be not free anymore. The first principles of a democracy is that everybody should be free to give their opinions and speculations.

30 Talk Show Hosts Let the Interview Be About the Subject and Not About Them
31 Re-Elect George W. Bush

he's Dope!

Is there a troll on this list? You want a WW3 and wipe out humanity? - MChkflaguard_Yt

32 Get Rid of Kanye West
33 Reduce Income Inequality
34 Educate Democrats On Why Their Party Is Actually Not a Good Idea

Going against freedom of party. Well done "US."

35 Get Rid of Democrats

If you do that, you need to rid of Republicans too.

I can already sense a huge bias against democrats. - Jasmine21064

36 Educate Americans On Why Being Republican Is Good

Bad idea. That's brainwashing.
Also, if only women were to teach us this, then that would be called Republican Motherhood. I think. - Jasmine21064

They did the same in NAZI Germany. Teaching ( or educate as you like to call it ) at schools, at social media channels etc...the " truth " ( you will be brainwashed that all other belief is a " lie " ). Just look what happened in NAZI Germany by doing that. You got a republican president now ( Donald Trump ). Wait and see for the future. Things will be worse for the United States in the future, believe me, ( economic crisis to come because you are taxing import countries, more racism by building walls and deny access to several countries, more terrorism to come because you provoce them now, and many more issues to come... ). But hey, you are allready brainwashed! " Make America great again " while the rest of the world doesn't care about your greatness and hates a clown like Donald Trump.

You've got to give it the ingenuity Republicans. By aligning themselves with God and Christ they have managed to get millions of people to vote against their own interests and in support of policies that benefit rich, white men. Quite the coup.

"To make the world democratic! 1" Looks like you are doing the opposite. You are repeating what Hitler does. - MChkflaguard_Yt

37 Stop Calling Themselves America

It's a short term because we don't want to go around saying 'The United States of America'. This can be used or US can be, but they pretty much mean the same thing. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

Most people from the United States think that only they are Americans, when in reality, American refers to anyone from North or South America. - NicholasYellow

The name of our nation is "The United States of America", so please pull your head out of your butt when making comments.

What do I read there? Mexico is in North-America? Do I have to buy a sombrero for the snow?

School is an oppressive system. How about educate by giving kids iPads that have an educational test on them, the do once per week. The gov’t chooses the criteria of what to teach with these tests.
There would be so much more freedom! For kids. If they do these tests, they could have a
Money reward! If they can’t afford iPad, have the gov’t mail paper tests to their house
