Good points Moaner.
A takeover transition would make a great thread as to what one would change.
I'd fix what we have....but get out the lobbying COMPLETELY out of the system, HEAVY punishment for government fraud, nearly ELIMINATE foreign aid, and determine where do we REALLY need military bases abroad everywhere we currently have them and close the rest.
That's where I'd start if I had the title "King".
I think a revolt here now would be squashed so quickly and violently that we would then see just how much of a democracy we live in.....none at all.
