MY PLATFORM


America needs a grownup in the White House.

Like Lincoln preserving the Union, and FDR overcoming the Great Depression, the central theme of my administration will be restoring stable, affordable middle class family life.

To have strong families we need family friendly federal policies, fiscal discipline, a realistic foreign policy, and a military doctrine to fight to win instead of repeatedly getting bogged down and financially bled white in “Viet Nam” war scenarios like Iraq.

The first key the success is I will be a strong president who will demand the federal bureaucracy fully support my program.

The second key to success is whenever possible to use existing law and regulation to effectuate my policies.

The third key to success is setting priorities. An administration that tries to be all things to all people ends up doing little or nothing for everyone.

The fourth key will be the FAMILY IMPACT STATEMENT to accompany an adminstration request for new legislation, or a federal program seeking approval for new or modified rules and regulations.

AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Creating stable, happy families requires affordable housing. Hence I will do the following using existing law and regulation.

1. End the housing price inflation by ordering the end of non-conforming mortgages which pump too much money into the property market to chase a naturally scarce commodity.

2. Seal the borders to illegal immigrants and institute an aggressive removal policy. Illegal immigrants are a major factor in today’s scarcity of affordable rental particularly at the lower end of the housing market.

RESTORE MIDDLE CLASS WAGES FOR
BLUE COLLAR WORKERS


1. Impose financially meaningful penalties on employers who knowingly hire illegal workers.

2. Withdraw, or modify trade treaties which export jobs overseas.

3. Withdraw or modify trade treaties which create persistently adverse financial consequences for the United States.

GET THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OUT
OF THE DIVORCE PROMOTION BUSINESS

DISCOURAGE DIVORCE BY REMOVING THE INCENTIVES:

MONEY, REVENGE & GETTING THE CHILDREN

1. Order as a condition for states to receive federal subsidies for family programs child support recipients shall be designated fiduciaries required to file reports supported by documentation showing how the money was used for the child’s direct benefit.

2. Order as a condition for states to receive federal subsidies for family programs they must enact a rebuttal presumption of joint physical custody in a divorce action.

3. I shall order the Attorney General vigorously prosecute as a federal civil rights felony anyone making a knowingly false domestic violence allegation resulting in incarceration of the alleged abuser.

FISCAL DISCIPLINE

By nature I’m a frugal person who dislikes debt, saves regularly, and lives within my means.

I will bring those same attributes to running the federal government.

The voters can take to bank my promise the budget deficit will be slashed and unnecessary spending eliminated whenever I detect it.

THE TAXPAYERS WILL GET VALUE FOR MONEY IN A KLEIN ADMINISTRATION.

FOREIGN POLICY

Our foreign policy is so dated, stale, unimaginative, and intellectually bankrupt it endangers our national security and undermines the economy.

Here are a Klein administration’s foreign policy priorities:

1- Iraq: The war is lost and we’re headed into an intractable “Viet Nam” scenario with no way out under current policy. I will withdraw
our forces very quickly. Iraq’s already fallen into a civil war which
will inevitably lead to the breakup of the country into Kurdish,
Sunni and Shiite states. Our presence prolongs the conflict.

2. Globalization has proven an economic and social catastrophe
for ordinary Americans by shipping too many industries and jobs overseas. EVERY TRADE AGREEMENT WE PARTICIPATE IN WILL BE REEXAMINED FOR ITS FAIRNESS AND EQUITY FOR AMERICAN INTERESTS.

3. I will end America’s “neoconservative” foreign policy of imposing
democracy at the point of a gun. Our notions of democracy cannot be
imposed willy-nilly on countries not ready for it, or in which to preserve a family-clan society the society doesn‘t want it.

4. I will open diplomatic relations without prior conditions with Cuba, Iran and North Korea. As in everyday life, problems can’t be solved unless people talk with other.

MILITARY POLICY

I will institute a new military doctrine to fight to win even if that requires in infliction of mass civilian casualties and property damage. Otherwise, we end up in “Viet Nams” like Iraq bled white fighting local insurgencies.

To do that I will demand revision, and if necessary withdraw the United States, from international law agreements no longer appropriate to effective fight 21st century asymmetric wars.
