Hard Cheese

Warning, this is easily the most difficult Cheddar X yet. With that in mind, I'm planning on taking at least a week to respond to as many of the points as possible.

Because its too easy to get sucked into the negativity of the current electoral season in the good old US of A, I thought it might be an interesting exercise to sample the X-nation's ideals for various aspects of a commander-in-chief. No endorsements, no name calling, just plain what you think should be done and (if necessary) how it could be done.

I expect that this will be a tough week of the Cheddar X, It's Cheesier but then, nothing worthwhile is ever easy, is it?

So here's how I'm envisioning this. I'll lay out a bunch of typical or maybe atypical presidential platforms, take the one's you want, build yourself a platform based on what you think should be done. Articulate your position.

1. Education
2. Environment (which can be further broken down)
3. Economy
3a. Employment
3b. Deficit
3c. GNP
4. Foreign policy
4a. Nuclear proliferation
4b. Human rights violations
4c. Genocide
4d. United Nations
5. Terrorism
6. Homeland security
7. Taxation
8. Alternate energy sources
9. Healthcare
10. Social security
11. Abortion
12. Same sex marriage
13. Assault weapons or other gun control
14. Drugs
15. Big tobacco
16. Big business
17. Corporate corruption
18. Frivolous lawsuits
19. Obesity
20. Overconsumerism
21. National malaise
22. Smelly people on the subway
23. SUV's
24. Homelessness
25. Steroids in baseball

There are probably plenty of other topics to add here, if you want me to add a new topic or a subset (like breaking out the environment into more than just the one umbrella topic) then leave a comment or drop me an email (don't forget to drop the nospam) and I'll update the post.

I hope this is an interesting and worthwhile exercise. If not then let me know and I'll try not to do it again.
