Writer's Block: Following the leader

Let's say you're running for president, and you win by a mudslide. What would you change about your country and why? Would you make new laws? Paint the White House blue? Tell all!

The first thing I'd do if I were prime minister is end the federalization of Belgium.

I feel that all the separation stuff between Flandres and Wallonie is only turning people against one another, even aside of wasting a lot of time and money and making people feel they are enemies, instead of countrymen.

If politicians were forced to serve all of Belgium, instead of just their region, they'd be more inclined to compromise and think of what's good for the whole country and not just those who happen to speak the same language as they do.

(Seriously, thanks to federalization and all the bullshit it brings with it, Belgium currently holds the world record for forming a government, not exactly something to be proud of.)
