If I ran for Prez on this simple platform would you vote for me? My platform would be to put an "internal" timeline on a total withdrawal of Iraq. Neither the press nor our enemies/those who stand to gain by us leaving would know the exact date or time of our departure but it would be within the first few years of my presidency. I would then cut off all funding/foreign aid for any country that did not act in our best interests in the last decade. Any country that helped us after 9/11 in Afghanistan and Iraq will be regarded as a dear friend and ally that will continue to receive America's thanks. I would take a complete hands off policy in terms of world affairs. America is no longer the world's policeman. I would close all military bases NOT on American soil and bring all US troops home and station most of them along our borders which would summarily be closed to ILLEGAL immigration. I would however keep our Navy battle groups deployed throughout the globe near "hot spots" in case there was a clear threat to the US and we needed quick deployment. I would immediately withdraw the country from the United Nations and evict them from U.S soil turning the UN building into a museum or completely razing it and turning it into a playground or something. With all the money not spent on foreign aid and operating foreign military bases, I would cut taxes considerably for every tax brackett in a fair and even manner. I would not cut them however so that we could not maintain some sort of "safety net" for those who need it in terms of the poor or the disabled. I would also use a large portion of that leftover money to ensure that our military members received top notch health care for them and their families throughout their lifetimes free of charge. I would ensure that the military would be a career that people would want to choose. Would you vote for me and if not, why not?
