1. Internet? Monitor it. The most obvious thing for a safer society, is a safer internet. Right now, the internet resembles that of a wild west theme, where many criminals and micsreants can go to do their deeds. Search long enough and you'll find the weird, the lawless, the crazy, the good and the bad. To tame this "Wild West" Internet, we need to send in the Law. We need full scale internet monitoring and censoring to obliterate questionable material that is a clear and present danger to our society and children. Today, with so many people having access to the internet and its profound impact on society, this needs to be #1 priority. Federal Agencies investigating traitors and other criminal activity on the internet. Pornography sites and their visitors for instance, will be monitored very closely. People posting threats of libel on the internet can be arrested. Anyone who gets hit with a red flag will have their internet activity haulted for an inspection period to make sure they cannot harm society electronically until the nature of their query has been determined. 2. Homeland Security? Cameras. Its no secret, the majority of Americans are behind the wiretapping progress to keep an eye on terrorist activity, but its just not enough. To really get into the root of the problem, we need to keep an eye on suspicious peoples and their activities. This would be best accomplished through cameras on every street corner, in every building(not private HOUSES), but everywhere. Law abiding citizens need not worry, these cameras are for the criminals in our midst. Imagine the sharp decline of drug dealing, homicides and armed assault and robbery if everyone knew they were on camera 24/7. You'd have to be stupid to commit a crime. Dont get me wrong, im not putting stupidity beyond that of the average low-life drug dealing thug, but camera security would be the Holy Grail of homeland security.

3. Tattoos of religion/crimes. Im sick and tired of seeing a suspicious person walking down the street, and not knowing anything about them. Arent you? How many times have you seen someone and wanted to know if they were muslim/christian/jewish/atheist and whether or not they had any crimes you SHOULD be aware of? Clearly, our rights are being violated, we deserve to know this information since our safety can depend on it. I propose a system that requires a tattoo specifying religion on every citizen of this country. Furthermore, we can go one step further and put tattoos down that specify prior criminal offenses. There is honestly no logical reason for something like this to be turned away. If you have strong faith, you should be more than willing to wear it has a badge of pride! And if you dont want a tattoo specifying past criminal offences, then dont be a criminal. These tattoos would issued by the government, and should clearly visible. Either way, its a win/win situation for society.

4. High Crime? Put up walls. Sounds simple? It worked for China, it can work for us. Walls are great because they keep the good people in, and the bad people out. I feel that huge cities should have huge walls to separate the high crime areas from the other areas of the city. However, these walls should have checkpoints and clearance zones allowing law abiding citizens to pass through without hassle. If you're a criminal with drugs, beware. You aren't getting into that nice neighborhood to sell your dope. No more will we hear horror stories of innocent people being struck by stray bullets from random drive by's. These walls can mean the difference between life and death for our kids.

5. Immigration. Im going to keep this one short, because its a simple problem to remedy. First, deport all illegal immigrants. There is no logical reason why they should have that same access to this country as the same people who come here legally do. Second, set up mine fields and machine gun nests at the borders.

These are my ideas that I feel touch up on the major issues facing America today. The internet, homeland security, crime, and immigration. Each of these hold a huge impact on how our society will shape itself, and continues to do so. I hope that we wise up to the facts and take initiative to correct these problems while we still can.

You ever lived in China?

Sure some compounds have walls but not all walls are used for protection, most are used for decoration. You see I live in China and there is little crime in my area, not because of the walls - the walls have little to do with crime- its because of the sheer amount of guards. In my compound there are at least 5 guards on a rotating shift every day. The walls of my compound are used for decoration, not for protection.

However the walls in China which are used for protection differ in structure some walls have pieces of jagged glass stuck onto them to prevent people climbing over them, some have sensors. But walls like this are mainly put around schools, factories, warehouses, important buildings and so on.

Putting huge walls as you suggest around sections of cities is utterly stupid,people will feel that they are confined or imprisoned, in other words it would turn the city into a big prison.

To quote Warcraft 3 "people will become prisoners in their own lands."

Warning! Before anyone takes Jeff&Eddie's comments seriously, please read their "Werewolf" thread. In it, they believe that official European history includes time-travelling vampires called Illuminati and that there are frequent werewolf sightings reported around the world. They also believe that the world was made 6000 years ago and that dinosaurs died out in Noah's flood. Now returning to rebuttal of current thread. Thank you for your attention.

Now back to this argument, which I actually respected until line 6 (the method of controlling the Internet). I think I know where the "libel" accusation is heading - anyone accusing Bush of being incompetent can be arrested. Imagine the people who first reported torture on Guantanamo Bay before the government admitted it was true - they would be arrested and sent there immediately and no news would ever be reported.

How many times have you seen someone and wanted to know if they were muslim/christian/jewish/atheist and whether or not they had any crimes you SHOULD be aware of?

So if somebody is a different religion, they are no longer safe? Last time Jews were told to get tattoos was at Auschwitz. As for the high walls, they won't prevent drive-by shootings because guns are legal in America. Unless only the 'bad people' will get arrested for carrying a gun. I wonder how you spot one? Similiar goes for drug dealers - how can you search an entire car for drugs every rush hour? The whole city would be ground to a halt!

PS: If people get arrested for libel, that means your precious Rush Limbaugh would be next - on a thousand counts. So would you in fact, for calling me a druggie because I'm a liberal.

Yeah Jeff & Eddie give up man. Who do you think you are offering your opinions with logical rules and regulations. What do you think this is a forum?? Just accept America is a sesspool of corruption and crime and move on.

I think he was referring to the Great Wall, which actually didn't work for China...

I thought that too. The Chinese did use walls to seperate districts in ancient China.
