If “We The People” continue to elect those unwilling or unable to understand and follow the Constitution, we will surely deserve the resulting enslavement.
Some of the changes necessary to get us back on the right tract are:
Pay Congress based on their performance by deducting from their salary the cost to the average taxpayer of any legislation that a Congressman supports which is not clearly authorized in Article 1, Section 8 of The U.S. Constitution.
Reduce the size of the Federal Government by abolishing or returning to the states all federal departments, agencies and programs found lacking constitutional granted authority (See Article 1, Section 8 of The U.S. Constitution).
Repeal the 14th Amendment or remove the words that gave the federal government jurisdiction over ALL people. Before this Amendment, the people were citizens of the State wherein they resided ONLY. The States should be sovereign and make all law concerning the lives, liberty, and property of the people, except when the citizen themselves volunteer into that jurisdiction by accepting employment from the federal government or by violating constitutional federal law. Today most federal law is UNconstitutional, including laws concerning abortion, homosexuality, guns, drugs, social engineering, regulation, direct taxes (I.R.S.) etc.. Fifty governments seeking solutions to problems rather than one is the goal of STATES’ RIGHTS.
Repeal the 17th Amendment so that the Senators would again be appointed by their state legislatures to protect States’ Rights as the Founders intended. We would again have one branch of government with a vested interest in keeping the federal government small.
Replace all direct taxes with indirect taxes by replacing income tax, property tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax with sales or consumption tax collected at the State level. Article 1, Section 9, of the US Constitution states, “No capitation, or other direct tax shall be laid,….” The income tax was imposed briefly after the War Between The Federal Government and The Southern States. However, the US Supreme Court overturned it with these words, “The income tax is indeed a direct tax and therefore unconstitutional.” Pollock v. Farmers Loan & Trust Co., (1895) The income tax was unconstitutional then and is unconstitutional NOW along with all other direct taxes “…unless in Proportion to the Census…”, Article 1, Section 9.
Reform Social Security by gradually replacing it with Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA’s) which would allow workers to retire with more income than that received while working. Our current system is destined to fail regardless of all the promises made by dishonest or ignorant politicians. (more here)
Stop Activist Judges From Making Law by exercising the authority granted to Congress in Article III, Section 2, of the U.S. Constitution, “…the Supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, …with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make”. Congress also has the authority to impeach activist judges.
Get us out of the United Nations and get the United Nations out of the United States. One World Government under socialism is the goal of this Godless organization started by communist. Even though the U.S. provides more than 25% of the funding for the U.N., we only get one vote.
Promote morality and traditional family values by teaching the principles upon which this country was founded rather than the LIES of evolution, humanism, and socialism (more here and here).
Build a strong military recognizing that “Peace Through Strength” is always our best policy. Learn what motivates terrorist Here Stop illegal immigration by joining Congressman Tom Tancredo who offers solutions Here.
Declare War on Socialism and Humanism. These two interlocking philosophical points of view have gradually replaced the Founders’ self-evident truths with lies designed to deceive and enslave the masses.
Control Criminals not Guns. Criminals by definition are lawbreakers and will not alter their behavior in deference to a law. Enacting gun laws to control criminals makes as much sense as trying to require rapist to wear condoms.
“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” Thomas Jefferson
