    I would add one more item to your list. End abortion by passing a Life at Conception Act.

      I would bet that at some point it would be challenged in the courts and it would end up before the Supreme Court. Thus there is still a real need for real conservative justices.

        Besides the above,

        Building up our military is very important, because we have much of our arsenal sitting on runways broken down. We have also fallen behind in our Nuclear arsenal, and other technologies.

        I'd also like to see the tightening up of our vetting process at the borders.

        Lastly, I think I'd change the curriculum at grades 1-12 and University levels. These places are a breeding ground for liberalism. Changing the curriculum would ensure Conservative Republican's survival in the future.

        A few months ago a site offered a tax calculator. My wife would lose 300 bucks under Sander's plan every two weeks. Under Clinton her checks were unaffected, but that was before Clinton adopted free tuition for Sander's supporters. Under Cruz we saved near 150 every two weeks. And under Trump, drum roll please, we save 300 bucks every two weeks. Her checks alone will bring in another 600 a month. Not to mention my wife's work is picking up medical now 100%. So I'd like to see Trump follow through on his word.

        God bless,
        William

          This is a good goal but since our schools are controlled by the states there is very little the federal government could do to bring it about.

            Oh, there are a lot of things the federal government can do, Theo. Obama forced schools to comply with his trans. bathroom laws or face funding cuts.

              One of the key promises Trump started with in the first debate of the primaries was to get rid of the Dept. of Education and hand back the responsibility of running the school systems to the individual states.
              The reasoning behind his initial canvas was the effect "common core" (and now, transgender laws) has on our kids and their ability to learn the basics.
              He does, however, fully back the concept of charter schools and wishes to help further their agenda and methodology.

              One of the things I Would definitely like to happen in our schools is mandatory English with all other languages as an elective. In Florida, as an example, Spanish is mandatory in the federal school system but an elective in private schools.
              AND, speaking of languages, I would like to see mandatory English being taught to all green card holders. In order to have permission to study, work or live in the U.S. a person should have to learn the language of the land.

                G'day Bobby,

                Instead of "common core" a new curriculum should be "common sense". None of what you posted is beyond common sense. Instead of being taught about "white privilege" students should be taught, if you're going to dress and act like a wannabe Thug, then you have to be prepared to receive that stereotype and Thug treatment. Again, nothing beyond "common sense". Now pull your pants up!!!

                God bless,
                William

                  True you William!
                  The thing about common core is it is a study in conceptual learning which in math for instance, didn't occur until the later grades. Algebra, Trig and Geometry are all based on mathematical concepts which should follow the basics. If the basic rudiments in all types of learning are not taught first then a concept is lost for lack of experience. It's like putting the Sonata Pathetique in front of a beginning piano student and demanding he/she play it without knowing where middle C is located.

                  If the basics were taught to our students along with the expulsion of curve type grading then each individual student would have to study and be graded on their own personal merit. When a person is judged upon individual successes or lack thereof, instead of part of a group and treated favorably because he was in the same classroom as successful people, then things might start to swing around in all aspects of a student and later in the adult life.
                  To me, being rewarded even though you lose is absolutely stupid and does nothing to feed the competitive side of the human existence. Such is the nature of those people out there who are protesting, burning, and stealing. It's mob mentality with not one grain of individual responsibility.

                  We should be teaching and grading the way God does. Simply because we can recite a few verses and give a couple of bucks to the poor doesn't yet qualify us to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. We have to run in the race, not just sit in the bleachers to be rewarded.

                  God Bless ya William...........Bobby

                    even though it's true that state has last word on public ed, the fed have heavy influence when it comes to sponsoring via fed funds. you are correct bob on how rewarding should be given, we have a nation that is business based and there is no reward for not winning the prize. overcome a challenge a situation a circumstance is what it's about, not entitlement because one is alive and wants what they want.

                    but still that doesn't give the right to the strong, to trample the week, because they can. strength is given by God to protect the week, not disparage them. of which the educators love to do to those who have no aptitude or interest for what they teach.

                        I think I see the fat lady warming up. Or is that the fat man? Or maybe non-binary? Someone is warming up and they're fat. I think it's over. ;)

                              Excellent! There should be a law passed by either this administration or the coming one to End abortion and criminalize any of such acts.
