My first policy as the president will be to revamp our foreign policy, we are spending too many billions policing the world. I say withdraw from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and all other countries in the world. Let them sort their own problems.

Billions saved there

Then I want to execute all death row inmates right away, saving billions more in keeping these inmates alive, 68000/year per inmate saved. No more 12 years of appeals.

Billions saved

Then invest those billions in domestic policy, create a standard health plan for everyone like other countries such as England, Canada, Cuba etc etc. I need surgery it should be covered, not I have to mortgage my house because I need heart surgery.

Invest in our education system, build new schools, bring industry back to dying cities such as Buffalo and Detroit.

That's my platform

Why don't you just privatise everything? I'm sure you'd be handsomely rewarded for your humanitarianism.

Reece I like your way of thinking and that is why I would like to nominate you to be my Minister of Domestic Affairs, get you a nice office in Washington DC

You will make a difference when you become the Minister of Domestic Affairs, you will hire your staff and handle all domestic issues, how does a salary of $215,000/year sound? Company car as well.

You will delegate domestic affairs and set new policies which we will have congress pass into law.

So you interested

My platform on Taxes is to keep them the same, except for Corporate Tax, that would be increased by at least 25%.

Energy would go back to coal, nuclear I think is too dangerous, just look at Fukashima and Chernobyl, plus the nuclear waste can never be eliminated. I will open all the coal mines in West Virginia again, give the people there employment.

Trade with China would be eliminated, no more cheap dollar store crap, led paint toys and cheap china made goods, we make goods in the USA. No cheap clothes from Bangladesh with their cheap child labor. Bring back the manufacturing jobs back.

Vote for me and I will elect you Minister of Energy or Corporate Director of IRS

That's illegal, this would require a constitutional change. It would be much cheaper to just abolish the death penalty.
Legal process is only a part of the high cost of the death penalty. Extra security and the extremely high cost of the drugs is another key part of the cost and you'd still have those.

The drugs they use for the death penalty are just a few dollars per gallon. Actually I would get rid of the lethal injection, lets go back to the rope, rope is cheap, lets start hanging them again.

Murderers can't be rehabilitated, I'm saving a lot of money here that I will put into social programs and education

The Supreme Court would strike that down quickly. Its considered to be cruel and unusual.

Murderers can't be rehabilitated, I'm saving a lot of money here that I will put into social programs and education

Actually, murderers can and have been rehabilitated in the past.
https://www.theguardian.com...
https://www.npr.org...

Your plan doesn't really "save money", given you would never be able to abolish or limit the right to an appeal, as no one would support this and the amendment would never be passed, your rope proposal would be struck down by the Supreme Court, and you still have the extra security costs!
And assuming you somehow did get some of these things passed, you'd have reduced the civil rights of citizens, increased the likelihood of innocent people being executed,
And I have met even mentioned the fact that the death penalty doesn't work and the federal death penalty is hardly ever used! It's almost all state! Federal savings would be minimal at best.
There are better ways to find funding for social programs and education like
-Raising certain existing taxes, like income taxes on top earners or corporate tax
-Creating new taxes, like an FTT or a Carbon tax
-Increasing or introducing Tariffs
-Clamping down on tax evasion
-Closing tax loopholes
-Cutting defense spending
-Cutting military aid
-Ending the drug war
-Cutting other expenses

Billions saved there

Then I want to execute all death row inmates right away, saving billions more in keeping these inmates alive, 68000/year per inmate saved. No more 12 years of appeals.

Billions saved

Then invest those billions in domestic policy, create a standard health plan for everyone like other countries such as England, Canada, Cuba etc etc. I need surgery it should be covered, not I have to mortgage my house because I need heart surgery.

Invest in our education system, build new schools, bring industry back to dying cities such as Buffalo and Detroit.

That's my platform

Also, what would you do about Taxes, Energy, and Trade?

My platform on Taxes is to keep them the same, except for Corporate Tax, that would be increased by at least 25%.

Energy would go back to coal, nuclear I think is too dangerous, just look at Fukashima and Chernobyl, plus the nuclear waste can never be eliminated. I will open all the coal mines in West Virginia again, give the people there employment.

Trade with China would be eliminated, no more cheap dollar store crap, led paint toys and cheap china made goods, we make goods in the USA. No cheap clothes from Bangladesh with their cheap child labor. Bring back the manufacturing jobs back.

Vote for me and I will elect you Minister of Energy or Corporate Director of IRS

And Nuclear waste CAN be reduced, if not eliminated

That's illegal, this would require a constitutional change. It would be much cheaper to just abolish the death penalty.
Legal process is only a part of the high cost of the death penalty. Extra security and the extremely high cost of the drugs is another key part of the cost and you'd still have those.

The drugs they use for the death penalty are just a few dollars per gallon. Actually I would get rid of the lethal injection, lets go back to the rope, rope is cheap, lets start hanging them again.

The Supreme Court would strike that down quickly. Its considered to be cruel and unusual.

Murderers can't be rehabilitated, I'm saving a lot of money here that I will put into social programs and education

Actually, murderers can and have been rehabilitated in the past.

Your plan doesn't really "save money", given you would never be able to abolish or limit the right to an appeal, as no one would support this and the amendment would never be passed, your rope proposal would be struck down by the Supreme Court, and you still have the extra security costs!
And assuming you somehow did get some of these things passed, you'd have reduced the civil rights of citizens, increased the likelihood of innocent people being executed,
And I have met even mentioned the fact that the death penalty doesn't work and the federal death penalty is hardly ever used! It's almost all state! Federal savings would be minimal at best.
There are better ways to find funding for social programs and education like
-Raising certain existing taxes, like income taxes on top earners or corporate tax
-Creating new taxes, like an FTT or a Carbon tax
-Increasing or introducing Tariffs
-Clamping down on tax evasion
-Closing tax loopholes
-Cutting defense spending
-Cutting military aid
-Ending the drug war
-Cutting other expenses

You have some excellent points there BrendanD19, I would like to nominate you for my new Finance Minister when I get elected as President.

You mean launch nuclear waste into space? That sounds pretty dangerous with all the space debris out in our atmosphere.
