“When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. . . .” Declaration of Independence
It is time that during this election we exercise this right of separation from the socialist platforms that has creeped upon us. “. . . . it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, . . . ” What we endeavor to do is not to alter or abolish the Constitution, but to bring it back. In doing so we abolish socialism. The people are awakening to the realization that we have strayed away from the principles that made us great.
To “right the ship” will not be over night or without pain. Ever since the ratification of the Constitution for the Union, forces of socialism have been creeping into the foundation of the Republic with the goal of creating the “big rock candy mountain”. These “evil” forces established their first real foot hold in the early nineteen hundreds noticeably with FDR and the “great society”. The “great society” promoters change the monetary structure of the Republic in defiance of the Constitution’s clear defense of the gold and silver standard of payment. “. . . [I]mposing taxes on us without our consent: . . .”, or the infamous Income tax. Enough has been written about this government lie, except to remind the reader that the principle of “delegation of authority” is fundamental to the Constitution; a principle which no one has refuted.
As we seek to remove the socialist programs of our current President, we will need to take care that we do not “through the baby out with the bath water” so the speak. I would advise the new President to examine each and every government program in light of the guide lines of the Constitution. If they do not match up then they must be cut away. To many of this is going to hurt the pocket book and the family budget, but the people are going to have to be slowly weaned off of the government tit.
Probably the most challenging task before the new leadership will be reducing the blotted government bureaucracy. As these unsupported agencies are eliminated the bureaucrats will enter the unemployment lines having to look for real work. We may have to reeducate them again, anyway the work-place will have to find its level again, which will take time.
With the elimination of the federal income tax the citizens will have more in their pockets to spend. The States will have to take “some” of the burden which is done away with at the federal level. However, the States should be reminded that many of the limitations and protections afforded by the United States Constitution are still in place as a protection against State interference relating to the citizens. I point out the error in thinking by Governor Mitt Romney in the health care program for his State. Again, governor, the States have no right, just as the federal government has no right to force the people to purchase a program against their will.
So we eliminate wasteful government spending, which I would include reducing the salaries of congress, along with the perks, and streamline the federal government to be more effective in their “constitutional” duties. Eliminate the federal income tax, which would in turn reduce the size of that criminal agency tremendously, putting more money back to the people who then could afford some of the health programs, and retirement concerns, among others. Above all, encourage the people to be more responsible for their lives and less dependent upon government.
