I would rather have a term be 4 or 10 years. If people want to change, they should do it on a year by year basis. I also would like to see someone other then a democrat or a republican as president. It would be good for the country.
I think healthcare could be affordable by trying to get religious institutions to pay for it for those that can't afford it. The poor people would contribute what they can to their health insurance, and the church pays for the rest. If you don't think they can, they probably will be able to if RIEP(Religious Institution Enhancement Policy) comes into effect. What this is is it is the government encouraging that people tithe to the church or their religious organization. Atheists can tithe to whoever they want. It's encouraged, not mandatory. Democrats want to help the poor out, many on the left would tithe. Many Republicans would also tithe since Republicans tend to be religious.
Even with RIEP, lets say for the sake of argument that religious institutions can't pay for it. It still helps reduce the cost of health insurance significantly for poor people, leaving much less work for the government to do.
Can we project global military power without spending half our taxes on unproductive weapons, etc.
What is an unproductive weapon? We don't need more nukes then what we already have, but what would you think of robot soldiers?
