If I had the power to do so, here’s what I’d do to fix our problems.
First, I’d declare the death penalty for all persons caught sneaking into our country and I’d order tens of thousands of troops to be stationed along our border with Mexico and instructed to shoot on sight anyone entering illegally.
I’d also impose the death penalty for anyone caught with seriously addicting drugs such as meth, heroin, cocaine and so forth, and require that anyone caught with any usable amount of such drugs be sentenced in any court by any judge and publicly executed within one week of arrest. No appeals, you have a usable amount of any such drug, and “usable” will be defined by law, then you die.
Everyone here illegally would have to leave within 30 days of the proclamation. Anyone caught after that would be put to death. Any retaliation for this by Mexico, any sort including economic retaliation, would be considered an act of war and responded to as one.
Any act of espionage, electronic or otherwise, committed by China or any other nation would be met by seizure of all that nation’s assets within our borders.
China must either rein in North Korea and get rid of the Kim family dictatorship, or I would put such high tariffs on all Chinese imports that they would collapse economically. That would end the N. Korean problem.
I would use our economic power to bring our enemies into line. Not to try to change their national philosophies or any of that, just to teach them that screwing with us can be painful.
I would make sure the winds were blowing out to sea before dropping several nukes on the so-called Palestinians, putting an end to that cancer. I would drop some more on Saudi Arabia, to wipe out their entire military, the royal family and most of the wealthiest Saudis, thus ending a lot of child sex slavery abductions and putting the rest of the OPEC nations on notice to start playing nice or else. I’d nuke hell out of Iran.
The Russians would then have no problem securing Syria, and ending the fighting there. They’re long time allies, they deserve each other, no problem. I’d send in enough troops to wipe out ISIS and then go into Africa and wipe out the various Islamist terror factions like Boko Haram.
All these acts would put a screeching halt to Hezbollah in Lebanon and elsewhere, because they’ve been supplied and supported by Iran, and I would have put paid to Iran. With no Islamists shooting missiles into Israel anymore, the Israelis could focus on making Jerusalem their capitol at last, and maybe even replacing that Dome with their own temple once again.
With the war in Syria ended, all those millions of refugees can be sent back home. I would heavily pressure the Western European nations to expel all Muslims back to their countries of origin including their children, and to pass laws outlawing the practice of Islam. Somewhere during all this I would have also outlawed Islam in the United States, and ordered the destruction of all mosques as being dangers to our National Security. All the Muslims would have to go home including any born here, or else abandon Islam for some other religion or no religion. Death penalty for anyone caught cheating.
The only way to get people to play nice is to scare hell out of them. If a smoker knows that smoking “might” give him cancer and kill him, he’ll keep smoking, but if he knows that he’ll get a bullet in his head if anyone even smells tobacco on him, he’ll quit. People only stop screwing up when they’re forced to stop. Death is a great stopper.
It would probably only take me about 3 months to end all the terrorism in the world and get everyone to live in peace. Too bad I’ll never get the chance to try.
