Education:

Schooling would start at 3, and the children would attend primary school from the age of 5 and shall end when they have completed 5 years of schooling wherein the curriculum consists of the trivium, which is: Grammar (English language structures, words, and spelling), logic (basic arithmetic, basic scientific arguments), and rhetoric (debate, and communications).

Secondary school shall consist of 4 years, wherein the curriculum consists of the quadrivium, which is: Arithmetic (and algebra), Geometry, Music (and the arts), and astronomy (Physics, and the physical sciences). Children shall also have to take basic courses in History, Geography, and Sociology. Foreign languages shall also be pushed (i'm a fan of latin and esperanto).

Tertiary school shall consist of 2-4 years, wherein the curriculum consists of the natural sciences (Physics, Biology, and Chemistry), Mathematics (Calculus, and Statistics are mandatory), Economics, Accounting, Psychology, a course in philosophy, Classical literature (and modern literature), Foreign language literature, and basic job skills.

Higher Education shall consist of 3 routes: Trade School (2 years), Community College (2-4 years), or University (4-6 years).


There's plenty of things that I would like to change about the United States, but the education system is the only thing I feel needs to change... Other than our economic model, of course.

I'm a fan of complete de-regulation of the markets (dropping all of the superfluous "safety" regulations, anti-trust laws, and the ever-changing system of import quotas and embargos that we've got), and i'm a fan of dropping the minimum wage for small businesses (People consent to work for money. The government shouldn't regulate how much a company ought to pay someone if they're the ones that want the job.)

New Look Military, and increased reliance on a state guard or militia system (to be able to defend our country without spending too much money).
 
Quite seriously, fuck this. You don't actually read my arguments. You just skim, pick out sentences without their context or further thought into them, and rebuke them. Three-fourths of this "new" argument I have already made counter-examples for and overall destroyed. In fact, you've literally restated points that I have expressly rebuked.

This argument shall go nowhere. It will not be because I am some naive and thick individual, but you, because you don't actually read people's arguments nor think about them any further than at face-value before making rebuttals.


You're just mad, you just want to live in this drugged out world where bad people don't exist. Must be a Jersey thing.

I bet you have eroded nostrils and gangrened arms from needle/drug abuse.


You're the one that thinks the constitution is outdated and already threw a label out to anyone who doesn't believe the same as you. You're just a hypocrite.

Fire most politicians.
Have maybe at most 10 politicians for the whole country.
Restrict their political powers greatly.
Mayors, governors and that would be life time appointees, however future leaders would be able to remove them for ethical violations and felonies.
Only violent criminals would go to prison. Rest would have to pay a fine covering the damages, the court costs and everything plus ten percent for profit.
Nationalized school teaching department, basically everyone in country would use the exact same textbook for the same class.
Flattened hierarchy for bureaucrats.
Progressive tax.
Increase the minimum wage for men by a dollar, that way all companies would be cheap asses and come hell or high water would hire women over men.
Group states as districts like California, Oregan, Washington, Nevada would be called district 9.
Districts would be by populace by lateral, so that one year you may be in district 7, but all of a sudden there is a population increase, so the district would be redrawn and you may find yourself in district 6.
All states and districts would be forced to have a balanced budget.
A oversight committee would be able to terminate anyone's job or law or such. Let's say employee 1032324 job is obsolete, if they can't find alternative employment that he is qualified for or something he would be useful at, he'd end up on the curb. Or if there's a law saying you can't shoot a camel in nevada, they'd just scratch it out with their pen and it'd no longer be a law.
Change overtime to 50 hours instead of 40, cause companies try their best to avoid going over the 40 hours to save money. Unfortunately it gets a lot of people shafted with their income.
Reclassify marriage as a religious tradition.
Introduce a anti-sexuality and anti-gender identity discrimination law, that regardless of who the employee is working where ever if they violate it, they get fired.
Have the budget oversight committee able to cross off anything on the budget.
Have a government bank/credit company that you could have a bank account at, get a loan from, etc.
Have what politicians there are mainly as a affirmative group, to mainly act as a quick action for what would take the bureaucracy months to do. Like if we got attacked by another country, they would declare war; however if there is a debate about a ongoing situation that has been going on, leave it up to the branch that it affects to decide. Like gay marriage, have the supreme court decide, or a budget crisis you would leave it up to the budget oversight committee.
Limit the president to a mear figurehead.
Introduce a law stating that the government can not hinder scientific progress.
Introduce a clause for bringing in provinces or places that wish to join the US quickly.
Introduce that politicians can't use religion as a tool for election.
Have the energy department able to control fuel efficiency standards directly.
Have a national std testing, genetic testing and checkup. Make the information about stds public to everyone so that bug catchers can't infect anyone else. Make the other information on a need to know basis.
Have condoms available free to teenagers.

What do you define as "superfluous" safety regulations? I'm assuming you don't regard all safety regulations as "superfluous".

and i'm a fan of dropping the minimum wage for small businesses (People consent to work for money. The government shouldn't regulate how much a company ought to pay someone if they're the ones that want the job.)

Nice idea - in theory. However, in practice there's only a certain amount of time in a day that anyone can reasonably be expected to work - which, in my opinion, justifies the existence of a minimum wage to ensure that a person is able to make at least some kind of basic living without being stuck in hand-to-mouth poverty.

New Look Military, and increased reliance on a state guard or militia system (to be able to defend our country without spending too much money).

Well, it seems to work for the Swiss :)

Oh forgot something

Silly hat fridays.
People without silly hats will be violated.
 

Atrak

Psychological Egoist.
If I was in charge of America? By 'lead', do you mean actually lead, or do you mean be president? Those are two very different things.

My list of things to do would be simple:

1. Introduce the guillotine to Congress.
2. Take over the world without any casualties.
3. Completely rework the government systems on Earth.
4. Work it so that I don't have to be in charge anymore, and instead can go exploring alien worlds or adrenaline-hunting with some extremely attractive (and diverse, personality-wise) women.
5. ????
6. Profit.

Simple.

i stole it and sold it on Ebay.
*pulls hat out of another hat*

Oh also I'd introduce a law that future presidents if they end up so disliked that there can be a special vote to remove him.
 
No, it's not a "Jersey thing" it's a logical fallacy thing. This final little comment of yours is proof of it, and all someone has to do is read through the last thing you made me rebuke and then your subsequent editing. You have no idea how to argue progressively. It's either your way or the highway and people's attacks on your arguments can go unnoticed because everything besides yours are irrelevant.

Two ad hominem attacks in the first two sentences. Then, a strawman argument thusly after. And proof of my supposed label?

I think you really should just stop now, you're really only hurting yourself and my ability to tolerate blunt stupidity.


Nah, this is fun.

Considering your history with other people i'd say your the one with blunt stupidity.

As for me. I don't care if i have crap posts. But it makes me giddy when you in particular take issue.

*pulls hat out of another hat*
*puts silly hat on*

Not even executions?
 
I would remove minimum wage and all price ceilings/floors so the invisible hand of economy can do its' work.
