I am a bit doubtful that Republicans can become a conservative party again but okay, lets say they all pool their testosterone and grow a pair. Maybe now that we are back in the U.S.S.A. the new perspective will remind some of them why we sent them to D.C. in the first place. It wasn't for campaign finance/1st amendment reform. It wasn't to find out what drugs some ball players are taking and it certainly had nothing to do with bipartisanship! It was to conserve what was set forth in our constitution!
I believe that the foundation of the United States of America is the single greatest accomplishment of man kind. The principals set forth in The Constitution are the result of a culmination of the best of all philosophy in regards to the governance of man. By designing a government that so accurately recognized that inherent nature of man kind, our forefathers set the stage for giant leaps forward in human endeavor. What is important here is that they recognized what we have forgotten. That it is not our land, not our government and not even our God that makes us great. It is us, each of us, as individuals choosing to use those good parts of our human nature endowed by our creator. We each must act! That is, we must take action to use what is good in us to do something great! It is the design of this government to GET OUT OF OUR WAY! It is our nature to be free and the duty of the government to protect that FREEDOM!
To date, no country had been better suited to do just that and we have all been blessed as a prosperous nation because of it. However we have deviated from our course in favor of the comfort in doing what feels good. Both Candidates were asked during the campaign something to affect of what do you think America has to apologize for. Neither could really answer it but I will.
We have shirked our duty to foster the better part of our humanity. We have crushed the human spirit and free will of those we pretend to help. We have offered charity so to make us feel good while creating a dependent class of Americans. We have created generations of perpetual adolescents still clinging to the government apron strings and never realizing their potential.
Now, as those strings begin to strangle us all, it is time to act! This will take real sacrifice. But mostly of power from the politicians.
The best that government can do for the economy is to get out of the way. Just as I can stand on the roof adjusting the wind vein all day and not change the wind. The government's involvement other than obstruction is at best as a service provider. Everyone knows there is nothing the government does that private industry can't do better, faster, cheaper. So here's a plan.
Lets take a real look at the Fare Tax plan. Abolish the IRS.
Sell the government's interest in the banks, in the car companies, everything we just grabbed. While we are at it, sell off any other business that our government is involved in that anyone else can do.
Next, you want jobs here in America again? Make it so darn easy to hire people that even politicians will be able to do it without breaking the law! That's right, no payroll taxes, no FICA and secret social security taxes, medicare and Medicaid taxes gone! We know it goes into the same pool anyway and those systems are bankrupt.
We can mandate a retirement plan and we can still make good on social security payments already promised. But take a look at that last statement you got about your social security retirement funds because that's it. No more. The rest is on you. Consider that as just one more bubble to burst.
