Some ideas for a better America

Here's some wishful thinking, but with nothing else to write about, I'll list my top 5 ideas for a better America:

1. Abolition of the Federal Reserve and return to a gold standard (no more Fed produced inflation).
2. A fence at the Mexican border to keep illegals and terrorists out of this country (see weneedafence.com ).
3. Health care reform where every American is covered regardless of their employment status or age.
4. Abolition of all racial preferences in education or employment.
5. Repeal of Roe v. Wade and the passage of moderate, reasonable abortion restrictions.

These may all seem far-fetched and impractical, but they're not. They can and will happen if you- I'm talking to all citizens of this Republic- pressure your elected representatives to get on board.

"Health care reform where every American is covered regardless of their employment status or age."

The other ideas are good, but this one is easier said than done. Canada's single payer system is a disaster. So it much of Europe's. The British NHS's wait list for routine non-emergency operations is up to 7 years long.

I disagree. To take a country I don't care for, but give the Devil his due-France's system is far superior to ours. France spends about 10% of its national income on healthcare, as opposed to 15% in the U.S. GM recently had to move a plant to Canada because health care costs add up to $1,400 per car. Our system is unsustainable.

So reduce regulation in the US covering health care. The solution is less socialism not more.
