As far as it went, not bad. If things work out even half as good as appearances, we would be in a far better place than we are now.
I will believe it when I see it.
One thing he mentioned that holds great promise was the bit about regulatory agencies. They should have no policy making power, nor that to judge, enforce, or "punish", as the good judge put it. If we are to have such agencies, and I say we should not, their sole tasks should be to monitor, gather evidence, and present cases to courts for further action. This having vested them with judge prosecutor and jury powers was an error of truly epic stoogery.
I would add this: any agency found to have mis-constructed a case against any party, whether corporate or individual, would have the responsible parties see the inside of the military barracks for not one minute less than ten years, hard labor. In any such case, the head of the agency is automatically sent to the barracks no matter what the circumstance. I would all this the "buck stops here doctrine". Most specifically, I would place in this immediate peril anyone or group who kept exculpatory evidence from the view of grand juries, prosecutors, etc. Anyone knowing of such evidence and not coming forward: barracks. I would put the terror of a minimum of a decade of turning large rocks into small, rain or shine, into every government official from sea to shining sea.
Want to collect your cushy government salary w/bennies and pension? Fine. But you will do it without injustice to your fellow men, or you will pay with your life in a manner far less pleasant than a firing squad.
