As far as I understand, RMS is against prohibiting proprietary software for a  
simple reason: prohibition does not work.  See what happened with the war on  
drugs.  He would certainly pass a law that would make the whole public sector  
(schools, the army, the government, etc.) only use free software after a  
transition period.  And probably another one that would finally prohibit  
tying hardware with software (typically the operating system).  And he would  
end software patents.
