If you had the power to create change and remove any laws in your country what laws would you create, change and/or remove?

Term limits for Congress. 6 years and you're out, with no retirement package and a maximum salary of 50k per year.

Personal responsibility - try it sometime. Quit blaming others for your bad choices. Consequences happen.

Term limits for congress, close loophole on president's ability to make appointments to key positions without congressional approval and congress's ability to "deem a bill passed", every law passed by congress must apply to them as well as everyone else. No more golden retirement programs for elected politicians from federal to local levels.

I would put limits on what can be taxed. A person could not be taxed more than a dollar just for a pack of cigarettes. I would reduce the amount of foreign workers that can come over on a temporary work visas and see to it the illegal foreigners are treated like illegal foreigners. I would outlaw automatic cost of living increases for politicians. I would change the way insurance works. I would lower the minimum amount you are liable for and have limits on what auto insurance can charge because since we have a law that forces you to buy insurance there should at least be limits to what they can charge. I would change the way unemployment benefits work so you can leave any job for any reason if you have been there long enough because as it is now they treat it as if the money comes from the employee and not your sweat. It is more one sided as it is. I would limit the time unemployment benefits can be extended otherwise you just have politicians using the issue to get support and votes every time there is a downturn in the economy and a lot of people don't feel they have job security. It is not fair to the employers.

An implementation which simply requires a referendum on any law change would be pretty close though, and could work.
