"Creative Conservatism"

The editors of the Weekly Standard call for conservatives to be creative.

I don't know how creative it is, but here's my program:

1. Phased-in--current recipients get all promised benefits--increase in the age for full Social Security/Medicare benefits to 75.

2. The Federal government sells a lot of its 600+ million acres of land.

3. A two-year freeze of federal spending (except for interest on the debt and defense).

4. Cuts in marginal personal and corporate income tax rates, payroll tax rates, and capital gains tax rates.

But please note that if nominated I will not run, and if elected I will not serve.
