Five Pragmatic Economic Reforms Every Millennial Should Be Fighting For

Economic recession blows. Poverty blows. Yeah. Something like that. We will also all magically fix the economy with five liberal points, or five conservative points, five personal points, or the five Calvinistic TULIP points.

But here are my own recommendations:
1. Build a Death Star.
Why not a USS Enterprise or a TARDIS? Well, for the USS, I'm not a Star Trek fan, sorry. And it seems to me just another glorified spacestation ship thingy. For TARDISes, it's more believable that the UK would build one, not the USA ('Murica!), also, I only advocate its use for individuals such as myself and myself only, not the government.
Think about it: Americans with the ability to rewrite history? You've seen their movies..

Anyways, back to economic stuff. Here are the reasons:
By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.
There was a petition that gained much more support than Obamacare. Unfortunately, the White House declined to fund a Death Star. Pity. It blows (up planets), you know?

2. Tax other countries' citizens.
Since we are number numero uno country in the world, this makes perfect sense. Take from the rich, give to the poor, but make it rich countries, not poor countries. I think this is called "tribute" back in the olden, ancient empire conquering days. The world does not deserve the American world police protection! I mean, have you seen how the world venerates Obama? They'd be practically throwing us money.

3. Replace the dollar with the Bitcoin or other alternative alternative electronic crypto-currencies.
The dollar is worthless as paper and is only backed with full faith of the government. Which, if you believe bureaucracy, is also made up of the cellulose stuff called paper. Paper is easily burnt and is biodegradable. Paper money has been trying to go transpaperistic and has emerged into something that looks like a cyber-plastic card. Then paper money shall shed its material consistency and ascend into the pure digital prison realm of the Matrix, becoming purely electronic money! It doesn't even have to be Bitcoin.

4. Reduce all and each law to 1000 words or less (additionally, each following sentence must be relevant to the thesis statement and backed by historical precedent).
This will greatly deregulate everything by principle, much faster than any libertarian reform, apart from the next point. The more laws we have, the less justice. I quoted that from a smart, dead person that I do not seem to remember his name. Oh well. But think about it, the federal law register is approaching 60,000 pages. In applying this law, we can reduce the page count to merely 600, to save on paper and secretary bills. It also has the side effect of reducing pork by principle and keeping each law to a point, making lawyers almost unnecessary. This will also create a demand for English grammar teachers, thus boosting education and therefore the economy.

5. Usher a real Third Great Awakening.
In the days before the Revolutionary War, two events ushered the rule of Natural Law and the Protestant Work Ethic and thus capitalistic prosperity in the American colonies, the revivals of the Great Awakenings. Finding freedom both religiously, economically, and politically, upheld with a strong moral atmosphere, it was instrumental in birthing this great nation! Tax was non-existent, and the White House was staffed by just a handful of people. There were no welfare or corporations, but the most level equal opportunity there is available. And the people fought off the economic tyranny of the British tea taxing overlords like a Tea Partier. Hurrah! This also takes care of the personal reform part.
