Changes America Should Make

GHOSTbirdnatureLOVER
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

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.

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.

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

Europeans arriving in a new continent and colonizing the natives is illegal immigration too. - MChkflaguard_Yt

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.

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

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

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

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 ".

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

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 Improve the Quality of Education

ALL obvious guilty like Serial killers should be killed in the way they killed their victims, sooner than later in every state.

10 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

Which just makes capitalism worse. - MChkflaguard_Yt

no

Noncey item - Puga

12 Get Rid of Money in Politics
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.

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

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 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

16 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.

20 Reduce Poverty
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

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!

29 Ban the Theory of Evolution

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.

31 Educate Democrats On Why Their Party Is Actually Not a Good Idea

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

32 Get Rid of Democrats

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

33 Educate Americans On Why Being Republican Is Good

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

Because it makes you more white? - naFrovivuS

34 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?
