What would you do as leader of Somalia if you had the job? What economic system would you pick (Socialist, Capitalist, etc.). How would you deal with the immense issues of clanism, poverty and religious extremism? Give me your plan to fix Somalia.

Honestly interested in peoples ideal way forward for Somalia.

Establish Meritocratic system in government and revamp the political structure.
Talk SL out of independence, if not isolate them.
Hold a huge clan reconciliation conference, involving all clans who have grievances against past governments (this ties in with SL)
Wide range social reforms such as banning selling and consuming of Khat, building new houses schools hospitals and moving internal refugees to their rightful homes (once its safe) among others.
Ban clan discrimination in jobs, schools, businesses etc.
Destroy Al Shabaab myself, Somali generals and AMISOM seem very incompetent, they can't even beat peasants. Also try to lift arms embargo and increase naval power.
Try to get rid of toxic waste on our coasts and waters, then revive fishing industry.
In terms of economy, I will go for a mix of socialist and capitalist, like what the Scandinavian countries are doing. Mix between nationalising companies and privatisation (depends on the sector).
Massive revamp of infrastructure (rebuilding roads in the cities then go and build new roads in the countryside).
Get rid of AMISOM.
Tell Ethiopia, Kenya and all other countries that want to meddle in our internal affairs to f*ck OFF.
A complete revamp of the education system with a new national curriculum.
Once I can get the economy going introduce wide ranging social welfare reforms, helping out the most needy of our people.

Not in order of course. I may have forgotten other things too.


Unlikely goals:
Covertly increase Somali national sentiments in Djibouti, NFD and Ogaden, then once those reach boiling points, call for a peaceful referendum. Get African Union and UN involved, but DO NOT be seen as overly and overtly meddling in those regions so the cause for referendum gets international backing.

Ships from other countries which are sailing in our water needs to pay for passing through. If they want to import things from other countries they need to pay, if they refuse they simply have to find another way to get to their destination.:fittytousand:

The big question is how to implement this, just the first step is an extreme challenge (also one which I would tackle first, but I can't be President :D )

Some good points you mentioned there. Now I commend you for not getting involved in qabil talk but why are you so focused on SL. We`ve got bigger problems to deal with than SL It`s not like they`re causing us any issues

Yes the first point I made is the most crucial one to tackle because it will lead to all the other ones

How to implement this? That's the billion dollar question right now. All I know is you have to be someone who is not spineless, who is courageous and fight these problems head on.

Yes I certainly agree we have much pressing matters than SL, definitely. But what you must realise something:

You are correct, in the short term this is not a big problem. But just like a malignant cancer, it can and will cause havoc in the future. Once peace is restored in Somalia, then people will say, why don't SL become fully independent since it wont destabilise the horn? SL gets its independence, then other states will start licking their lips and wanting independence too, albeit with inevitable help from Ethiopia and Kenya. That will lead on to the blackest day in the history of the Somali people, Somalia as you and I know will no longer exist. That is something that must be stopped, before the malignant cancer spreads and its too late.

I would be so corrupt it's not even funny. I would be such a polarising figure. Human rights watch and amnesty international would hate me. Trump would nick name me as the "crazy rocket man'
 
I will make sure to lift the weapons ban by any means :camby:
I would secretly give large portion of the weapons to my clan:manny:
When my term ends i will use my private army to stage a coup:russ:
If it doesn't work ill start a full blown civil war ill encourage random groups to attack others to keep em occupied :lolbron:
 
Tell me why I think I would be the hitler of secularism, I would try to bring somalia into the first world something similar to Japan and anyone who stands in my way will be dealt with swiftly :cool:. I don't play when it comes to the law and punishment.
