A president should...
Lead the ship he's steering to safety, prospertity and most of all mercy & justice faithfully! If I were to ever have that authority, then I would use it to give everyone whatever they choose for themselves.
It would begin with just one requirement, everyone would be required by law to register to vote; you wouldn't be required to actually vote, only to choose a party, and register. The parties would be identified by their public platform alongside a list of their historic positions, issue by issue, and the citizens could choose sides. Not necessarily limited to two parties; welfare programs currently given to candidates of each party would continue during the transition period to this; up to two election cycles.
Once everyone is denominated by their stance on the issues, whether it is ultra conservative or extreme liberal, all the policy that each of us registered as would then promptly be applied to our lives.
For instance, if you are ruby red republican in your world view, you would get all the small government, civil liberties, and pro-business policy you proclaim as your primary ideals. Likewise, if you are a bleeding heart liberal, you would get all the social justice juju you opted for.
In practice, such an approach would immediately cut the cost of the budget of most social service functions of the state by about 40% across the board which could then be mobilized to turn around other glaring disparities that have been long ignored by America as a whole.
With a steady 90% approval rating among Republicans for the majority of his term, and a solid 37% of the whole country under his spell, its safe to conclude that a third of the citizenry are willing to live with the direction their party has taken. I would give them what they want!
For instance, if you found yourself in the unemployment line (as tens of millions of people have now), waiting for your stimulus check, or hoping you qualify for part of the bailout, then your application results would be determined by how you voted. Since all of those programs are subsidized by the government, then they are all welfare, also known as socialism, something you continually denounce and now get to live with. In a word, DENIED. Pull yourself up by your bootstraps! It wouldn't end there.
If, God forbid, you get sick while you are protesting government overreach telling you to socially distance yourself for general public safety then God help you. Since you voted against big government, your government subsidized employer-based health insurance would be null and void. Instead, you could feel free to experience trying to beg, borrow, and steal to cover the cost of shouldering paying for your coverage yourself, entierly out of pocket; including medications.
If you and your spouse play around during a lockdown, and find yourselves with an unplanned pregnancy, cool, congratulations! Only, your options will be determined by the paternal voter information, since the right-wing preaches a man taking the lead and women taking a backseat as her rightful place. In other words, your baby- daddy would get to decide the fate of your baby, perhaps even your family; choose wisely girl!
Republican females would also continue to receive the same .75 on the $1.00 payscale they have now; imagine the feduciary savings! Female Democrats' work would be paid dollar for dollar the same wages as their male counterparts; on all levels of business. That pay adjustment pays for itself, to Republican women, let's all give a collective: Thanks sis!
If you are too old for unplanned pregnancies, avoided the pandemic, and are living large on Park Ave. without a care in the world, then congratulations! Thankfully, you don't have to worry about relying on Social Security, a pension, or SSI/Disability, worker's compensation, or Medicare along the way; because again, all of these things are government backed welfare, and you vote against them. To benefit the greater good and give you what you voted for, you would be excluded from all of these as well. Pray for charity.
If you voted Democrat, then all of the above governmental programs to make the lives of US citizens more like the fabled American dream, would be at your fingertips. All easily affordable by the removal of that 40% of BIG GOVERNMENT expenditures Republicans decry ad nauseum, from the pool of people covered in the national budget. Traitorous vessels who were hypocritically burdening the system; privately fleecing the coffers by benefitting from the welfare subsidies while publicly bashing them.
Democrats would also have to put up shut by enforcing employment policy that requires any employer receiving any government subsidy would also have to have a workforce that matches the general population of America; 12% Black, %15 disabled, 10% gay, 1% transgender etc... or burden the cost of doing business on your own. Only then can we move past mere tolerance of diversity into genuine embracing of diversity.
If you didn't vote, then when you find yourself at a point in life that you need any of the above that are mentioned, or any others that aren't, such as benefit of a GI FBill, a corporate bailout, or a medical emergency, then you would be subject to the policy of how you registered, but given the option to switch when elections roll around again. There would be term limits for all elected officials and 10 year limits on Supreme Court terms.
Last, but certainly not least, the issue of race would be faced head on, meaning reparations would AGAIN be paid. This time to the families of the slaves who suffered and survived the atrocity that is slavery. I say "AGAIN", because, the white slave owners themselves were already immediately paid reparations to nudge them into peacefully releasing their slaves; they didn't, but still took the money! A perverted "slave buy back program" where everyone ended up with money, except the slave. The amount each descendant of slavery would receive would be based on the DNA test results; scaled to increase exponentially for those whose tests reveal that their genotype is on par with their phenotype (those who look black).
Since everyone alive in the world is descendant of those from Africa, no matter how blond & blue & pale you may be, my white brothers and sisters would be allowed to apply for a second bite at the apple (the first being the generational wealth they've inherited already). However, since those with more pigment in their skin receive more race based discrimination in every area of life, they would also receive more in reparations for enduring it.
This way, people would be forced to do several things. The first would be learning the truth about race, and who they really are. The second would be doing something to at least balance it. And lastly, all would have to live with the policies they voted for and end the hypocrisy that plagues progress in the world.
The only thing the slaves & their descendants got, is treated badly;
Know the truth, it will set you free.
