Title: If you were king...
Post by: Jacob on March 12, 2012, 10:26:25 pm
The rules of this game are rather simple. All you have to do is post, saying "If I were king, I'd ...". Serious answers are preferable. By posting on this thread, we'd be able to see how good of a king you'd be. ;) You're allowed to post more than once on this thread, but not in a row. :)

So I'll start.

If I were king, I'd make sure every person, regardless of their income, would feel extremely valued and loved by their king. :)

*Facepalm* That's REAL serious. ;)

If I were king, I'd make sure everyone had health, dental, eye insurance, and life paid by the government so long as they are a legal citizen.

If I were king, there'd be no republic system in my kingdom. The indecision would be destroyed in my kingdom.

^Good one - me too. ;)

If I were king, I'd limit importing and exporting to bare minimum needed. Any imports and exports outside of the government-paid ones would need to be paid by the ones who import or export the products. I'd also limit my yearly wages to something MUCH lower than that of which you'd expect for a king. As long as everything I needed was provided, I'd be willing to have lower wages; I'd take the rest of what I'd normally earn to make tax rates lower and to help provide jobs, and to better the nation altogether.

By the way - I'm serious. If I were king (which, I wish I was - not for the lifestyle, but rather to help make others' lives better), I'd do all of this stuff.

*In kingly voice* How DARE ye correct me?!!!!! Lol, thanks for noticing that

If I were king, I'd promote classical music, because it calms the soul and honestly, it made life better as people were more happy back then when classical music was still the mainstream. :P

If I were king of the foreeeeeeeesst! Just kidding!

If I were king, I'd make sure that no one could ever receive the death sentence, nor could there ever be a draft or a law that forces people to join the military.

If i were king i would be like the Grinch and demand items and gold. It would all be just to make a supprise for the people. Everyone that did as they where asked would get 10 fold. If they have me 10 gold coins they would receive 100 in return. :]
Title: Re: If you were king...
Post by: Jacob on March 13, 2012, 11:28:04 pm
That's an excellent idea. :)

If I were king, I'd protect and serve my people - I'd stand with them in their triumphs, and I would mourn with them in their sadness.
Title: Re: If you were king...
Post by: Ninja111 on March 13, 2012, 11:33:44 pm
You would have a lot of sadness then, when wemen are on their moments. HAHA

If i where king, I would make a holiday like christmas where you give. But it would only be my kingdoms holiday.
Title: Re: If you were king...
Post by: Jacob on March 14, 2012, 08:02:48 am
Hurr... Lol, I mean in national triumph and sadness. ;) Like if we were prospering, I'd be there. But if we were in poverty or our nation lost something great, I'd also be there, doing whatever I could to help make things better.

If I were king, anarchists would either need to give up their radical beliefs or leave the country - I wouldn't abide cowardice like anarchy.

If i were king, I would demand that people get off there butt, and do their daily chores. For instance the people that say "I'll do it tomorrow."
If they didn't obey my rule then they would be outcast until rules where followed.
Title: Re: If you were king...
Post by: Jacob on June 07, 2012, 08:39:41 pm
@Ninja - I don't think that's exactly the right way to do it. In my kingdom, the system would be - everyone does their fair share of work. If they can't, they're exempt. If they don't want to do the work, they pay higher taxes, to help pay the ones who do happen to do their fair share of work.



If I were king (no offense to gay people), it would be illegal for gay people to show their "affection" outside of their homes, and gay marriage would be illegal. If any gay person is caught kissing, holding hands, etc in public places, they can and will be charged with indecent exposure, which, thus with this law would be extended to include. I believe it's wrong that they are allowed to marry each other in certain states, and I believe it's wrong that they're allowed to kiss each other and/or hold hands in public...

Post by: Jacob on June 08, 2012, 05:52:50 pm
Lol, were I king, the education system in my kingdom would strive to have kids doing college-grade courses by 8th grade, but also would give the kids after 8th grade the choice to leave school and take on part of one of the nation's apprenticeship programmes. I think it might be better to do things this way.

If i was a king i would ban Jaekob from SMFNEW forever!

But i will be nice to people and care bout them

Lol, and I'd wage war on your kingdom. ;)

If I were king... I'd hold regular classical concerts, and before and after the show, I'd speak to the people in both the audience and the musicians, just like a real person.

If I was a king i would invite most of the celebrities to have dinner with meh!
Title: Re: If you were king...
Post by: Jacob on June 08, 2012, 10:47:28 pm
I'll take that challenge MST.

If I were king, yearly, I'd invite several random citizens over the course of the year to dine and attend a private concert with me. Also, they'd receive a year of taxes cut in half.

Following up that, I'd provide government-paid jobs and create massive homeless shelters in every city and town, I'd provide excellent government-paid healthcare for free to the citizens, as well as using over half of my royal salary to fully fund many charities (one of the charities also would be one that provides financial help to people who are poor), AND I'd take several days a year and just decide to do a normal job of a normal citizen, and take the entire day as a work day as a normal citizen.

These all would boost the morale of the normal citizens - they'd see their very leader is more like them than they thought, and they'd likely have more of a love for me. I'd care for my citizens, unlike a lot of leaders today.

If I will be a king, I would rather purchase PRO hosting :P

Serious : If I will be a king, I would spend my time chilling ,eating, drinking ,watching tv, internet etc. A strict *Department for Rules* , I mean strict rules - No death sentence , No corruption , No illegal activities .

>People will have to enjoy atleast 1 day of a week . I mean outing and something. It's a must.

>2 holidays in a week - Must

>No extra classes in schools.

>No "EXAMS" rather than "HALF YEARLY".

>A educational trip , once a month with the friends . Just chilling and Enjoying !

>No criminal activities. Criminals will be jailed for their whole life OR will be hung till death.

A safer and beautiful country , so that every citizen will enjoy that !

Title: Re: If you were king...
Post by: Jacob on June 09, 2012, 02:55:37 am
The trouble with being OVERLY strict is that you'll likely have plenty of rebellions on your hands. People *have* to have certain freedoms, and they have to feel like they're free, yet protected, else they'll not want to live in your country. You have to care for them - not just advance your personal agenda and vendetta.

That being said - (I don't think I said this before) the death penalty wouldn't exist in my nation, nor would a draft - both are stated in the un-amendable Bill of Rights of the Citizens of the United Kingdom of Northern Europe.

Death penalty only for thieves, criminals ! Not for anyone.........

Title: Re: If you were king...
Post by: Jacob on June 09, 2012, 01:50:33 pm
It doesn't matter in my kingdom - no one, not even murderers, can be given the death penalty, torturous penalties (other than jail sentences), nor be drafted in the military. The max sentence someone can be given is the choice of the judiciar - banishment or life sentence in jail.
Title: Re: If you were king...
Post by: Dxt13 on June 09, 2012, 11:52:14 pm
Okh ! It's gud but it will increase criminal activities in your kingdom......Cuz thieves haven't much fair about going to jail. They like it rather.....So they will exploit people and simply go to jail....
Title: Re: If you were king...
Post by: Jacob on June 10, 2012, 12:02:08 am
Not if you have a good kingdom-wide police force. ;) I don't believe humans have the right to take another's life, even if the criminal took someone else's life. I wouldn't want to have their blood on my hands, and I'd hate to know that I'd be the one responsible for sending someone to hell for eternity, so that's why I don't believe in killing others, even if others feel the criminal deserved it.

If I were queen, it would be a crime to break someone's heart. Because heart break leads to depression. And depression leads to crying. And crying leads to self harm. Which leads to suicide. Which is, believe it or not, a crime. Because it's homicide on yourself. SO, breaking somebody's heart would be a crime, because you'd be aiding a homicide. (I do realize this isn't always true....but just IMO teenagers are really f***ing depressed these days....)
It would be the law to tell me bedtime stories - each one of my citizens would have to. It'd be like how people are required for jury duty...But they'd have to tell me bedtime stories. Because I'm 17 but I'm super giddy and childish and bedtime stories about like kitties or bunnies or duckies would make me really smiley.
I'd tackle America's obesity, but in a way I feel the people would enjoy more. I think if I tried to like say no more fatty foods the country would be in an uproar. So I'd simply require all portions be a bit smaller. Then, people can still enjoy their fatty foods, but they'd be getting much less. So eventually they'd start to lose weight just from eating less. It works for me. I'm in no instance a health nut, I eat fatty foods like everyone else. But the thing being that I barely get in one meal a day... Well okay I'm a  bad example I'm underweight .___. But I'm proof that not all American's are obese.
If I were queen, I would ban "labels". Like scene kids or emo kids or girly or jock, etc. In hand, I would ban music being associated with labels. For example, scene kids listen to screamo. I guess I feel teens aren't lumped together...Like okay so I get called a scene kid because I wear colorful skinny jeans and lots of eyeliner. But I can't stand screamo. But I've been friends with some MAJOR idiots trying to tell me because of my clothing style that I have to like certain music and stuff and I'm just like NO. NO. NOOOO. My two favorite bands are Empire Of The Sun and Cut Copy. I like that kind of stuff.
If I were queen, animal shelters would not be allowed to kill animals. Just because a cat or a dog didn't get adopted, they would NOT be allowed to be put down EVER. Shelters would be bigger, and/or I would have a HUGE shelter in my castle's basement where they could go.
If I were queen, I would have an elite team of staff (my best friends) who would help me in matters of distress in my country and all that stuff, because I'm too sensitive for my own good and I'm very bad at making decisions and all that. So my friends would help me :P
Title: Re: If you were king...
Post by: Jacob on December 25, 2013, 01:32:19 pm
The trouble is that not everyone knows when they're hurting others. We all hurt each other at some point in life, whether or not we know it. A more effective way to combat issues like that would be to encourage kindness, and ban any kind of public hate speech (and I'm not talking about disagreeing with others- I mean true hate speech, where a person is belittling an individual person because of something they can't help, such as race, gender, or disability).

As for obesity, the only way you could really force change, is to ban all food except for your basic fruits and vegetables. A more effective way to combat this would be by instituting public dietary programmes and by encouraging healthy eating each way. Perhaps in your kingdom, you could run yearly competitions to see who ate the healthiest? It'd be hard to keep track of, but could help keep obesity under control.

As for labels. Again, there's really no way to fully end labels, but a way to combat it would be by instituting programmes to help schools have the tools necessary to help children being bullied. Even then, in my honest opinion, if someone won't stand up for themselves or go to authority when they clearly are able to, my sympathy goes out the window. I feel it's a situation, somewhat like they're saying "Poor me, I'm going to live a miserable life intentionally by not going to authority about my problems." Just my opinion on that part.

As for animal shelters, I would say that it'd be good to institute laws that regulate euthanising animals to only extreme situations, such as in the case that the animal is suffering or causing danger to someone or itself. And a bit more of my opinion - I'd be more concerned, on my end, about ending abortion and euthanising of human beings (and fighting homicide, particularly by regulating gun and weapon laws to fight as hard as my government could to keep weapons out of private hands) before I'd concern about animals being put down in shelters.

Just my two cents on the issues you addressed. :)

I will let that go, only because my best friend is also named Jacob and his last name also starts with an F :P

Otherwise my stubbornness would wanna be like "NO. MY IDEAS ARE THE BEST. I'M THS QUEEN. ME."


I guess were I to be queen I'd have to look at the nation overall and try and do things a way that'd work for everybody. But I'm too self centered for all that "other people" knowhow.

A leader must let go of self, and put the people before themselves. That's the problem these days- too many leaders are focussed on how they can make more money or fame or power for themselves, rather than what's right. Granted, as a Christian, I'd put it in this order: 1. God, 2. My family, 3. The people, 4. Myself; I'd truly love to be a king, and I suppose there's always that possibility, but it's not exactly likely. :P

If I was King, I would make my very own laws.
I would lower the taxes. I would make my people feel as though
they were royalty themselves. Respect from a King to his Kingdom, would
make it grow in size. The people would not feel mistreated. They
would feel love from the king, me, and share theirs in return.


And as a joke, I would change Kentucky's Fried Chicken to
King's Fried Chicken!
