Everything else is secondary until you deliver on your promise to make America great again with jobs and innovation.
Yes, Americans want you to nominate a Scalia-like Supreme Court justice (do so on inauguration day). Deport our millions of foreign criminals and felons, secure our borders, terminate Obamacare and Dodd-Frank, and end America’s intervention into the religious war in the Middle East. It is long since time to extract Americans from the Middle East permanently.
But first, honor your pledge to America’s small business owners, family farmers, blue collar skilled tradesmen (Harley workers and NRA members) that have propelled you into office.
Start now. You can begin by ending taxation on savings and investment, including an end to double taxation on dividends and taxation on interest, estates (see family farms) and capital gains. Make Wall Street (especially the hedge fund pariahs) pick up the tab. This cannot happen soon enough.
Immediately initiate a flat tax system in which every American pays his fair share and entrepreneurial success is not punished. In such a setting, the tax code would be junked 100% and the IRS shuttered. Tax filings would be made on post cards.
Immediately begin cancelling the vast array of Obama executive orders with the goal of dramatically reducing the regulatory burden on America’s small-business-owning job-creators.
Tell Americans we are going to move as fast as possible to 100% reliance on North American energy resources. Appoint a North American energy czar to work with our neighbor in Canada to make such a program beneficial to both countries.
Americans voted for you for action. Let’s not hear any back-treading and mincing of words. Let’s roll!
