So many that I am forgetting and some of these would be constitutional amendments:
1)Reduce military spending by 150 billion or so
2)Military spending on research can continue for that day when we have to fight China in 30 years but decrease current troops, hardware etc
3)Close some overseas bases, European particularly. And South Korea, they have the $ and people to handle NK on a standard military basis although we shoudl still be politically involved. No more needed in Saudi Arabia.
4)50 cent per gallon tax on gas to pay for FHTA.
5)Big increase into alt energy research
6)Nuclear power. Imperfect but best available option.
7)Free trade pacts with other first world nations, limited free trage with third world nations
8)Reaffirm and rebuilt the estate tax
9)Up the social security age and lower payouts with post-haste
10)Unemployment compensation tied in with a CCC like organization to do very needed work of fed lands and light construction maintenance for able bodied people.
11)More or less end welfare for adults. Welfare for kids on health care and food with strict programs ala WIC which are tougher to manipulate.
12)Policing shift. Less emphasis on drugs, more emphasis on small property crimes. Willing to give longer sentences and pay for prisons on this.
13)Elementary education and funding needs complete overhaul. So does 7-12 but lets start with lower el and work up.
14)Bye Bye farm subsidies
15)Leadership but not legislation to try to end the cultural glorification of stupidity. OK, this is really absurd but whatever.

21)Much greater public transparency.
Amendment type stuff:

remove immunity to gas guzzler tax that trucks and SUVs now have
disable 85% of the nuclear weapons owned by the US, keep just a few ICBMs pointed at Iran and North Korea. Tie this into disarmament of Russia and China.
- shut down all coal and natural gas based power plants, starting with the oldest and dirtiest
stop manufacturing the penny
Bingo on these given transition time.
