AS President, I would do my damndest to fix the American family. Make people accountable for and to their children. Tougher laws on deadbeat dads, rework welfare to NOT reward people for having more children than they can take care of, overhaul the social services so they can better do thier job, instead of just judging those that physically discipline their children.
Fixing the american family fixes America. If BOTH parents are more involved with their children, the children are likley to behave better, do better in school, and grow up to look for, find and nurture a healthy relationship.
It all comes down to family. It always does. I am not saying that divorce will be a thing of the past, but that both parents understand their obligation to their child, together or otherwise.
I am also not saying that love and nurturing will make all American kids straight A students, but how awesome would it be if every child in the country was actually performing to their potential? more kids going to college, not relying on McJobs, and getting real careers? More people with real careers means more tax dollars to do with what needs to be done, Republican or Democrat, you cannot argue with that!
I would also name Bill Cosby as my Secretary of Common Sense!
