If I Were Queen: My First 3 Acts Upon Becoming Your Beloved Empress For Life
2. Gut Entitlements
Don’t believe the myth that Social Security was invented to care for the elderly.
The retirement age was set at 65 because in those days the average man lived to be... 58.
It was designed never to pay out.
To use a gambling metaphor: The house was always supposed to win.
Therefore, we can restore Social Security to the Democrats' original intentions by raising the retirement age to 80.
This will be enacted overnight, because I hate Baby Boomers.
And frankly, the “Greatest Generation” who raised them have a lot to answer for, too.
Foreign aid will be abolished (including aid to Israel).
So will affirmative action.
I'm getting rid of the Olympics. Sorry.
Muslim immigration to the West ceases immediately.
Universities will return to teaching whatever subjects they were teaching one hundred years ago. Not the same course content, obviously, but the same disciplines. In other words, no more women’s studies.
Welfare will also be abolished, effective immediately. (I grew up with these people, so believe me: if you give them six months' notice, they will wait five months and three weeks to even start thinking about other arrangements. Poor people are poor for a reason.)
And two words: Flat tax.
