"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

The Regular Guy Believes Fixing What's Wrong With America Will Be Easy for President Romney

Imagine if in President Mitt Romney's first 100 days he (and, hopefully, a Republican House and Senate) can do the following:

1. Put in place a significant plan (Paul Ryan's) to reduce entitlement spending.
2. Cut other discretionary federal government spending by 10%.
3. Cut marginal income tax rates.
4. Cut the corporate income tax rate.
5. Make permanent the Bush tax cuts on dividends and capital gains.
6. Enact fast-track legislation for approving oil drilling in ANWR, off America's coasts, and on federal lands.
7. Enact fast-track legislation for approving oil pipelines and new refineries.
8. Enact fast-track legislation for building new nuclear power plants.
9. Task his cabinet officers with reducing regulation in their departments by 50% in four years.
10. Eliminate complete departments and return those responsibilities to the states, starting with the Education Department.
11. Repeal Obamacare.
12. Repeal Dodd-Frank.
13. Increase funding for building a larger, more modern blue-water Navy.
14. Propose and fund a NASA mission to Mars, with the goal of landing men on the planet by 2025.
15. Propose, fast-track and fund building the world's tallest building in Manhattan to replace the World Trade Center.

Smaller government, lower taxes, less regulation, cheap and abundant energy, fiscal responsbility, a strong military, and an America that reestablishes itself as the country that dreams big dreams and then accomplishes them.

That's an America I'd like to live in.
