America's birth did not come easily. Nothing about it came easily or on the cheap. American Citizen Liberty is not a "bargain" or a simple deal; it is costly. It took courage, resolve, blood and guts to earn it, and it took lakes and rivers of blood just to preserve it, expand it to others, and to keep it. The question before you is, how much do you love it?
Do politics still bore you?
When legitimate American government authorities come to your house, and you and/or your family members are un-Constitutionally prodded and herded onto trucks, buses or cattle cars, what will you do about it? Nothing? Do you still continue to believe that such terrible things as have happened elsewhere could not ever possibly happen here? If so, well ... go back to your entertainment, in your fog of disbelief, and just wait your turn.
At this point, at least, the rest of us can still hope and pray that it doesn't come to that. The Obamunist drive is toward social and economic break-down and chaos; but such break-downs and chaotic situations are rather unpredictable things, are they not?
The ordinary American citizen has always been the real source of American power and national greatness. They work, they get their hands dirty, they get things done, they build things and fix things, and they make a little profit and get ahead, which is to say, they are the sole source of the original creation of wealth. The people, not the government, make wealth. And they will not hesitate to take up their weapons when and if they have to.
Lots, and lots, and lots of them have done it.
That is why we are still here.
To begin, let us assume, for the sake of calmness and rationality, that we will somehow gain back American Conservative control of both Houses of Congress and the White House. What do we do then? How do we get back to Foundational Principles and Constitutional Principles of good American government?
It won't be easy, and it won't make everybody happy.
In fact, it will be quite painful. It took a hundred years of compromising the Constitution to get America to the perilously unbalanced position it was in when Obamunism took it over. That means, just to get back to pure Constitutional sanity, huge government bureaucracies will have to be destroyed and eliminated, leaving thousands if not millions of government employees jobless. They will all have to find real work to do.
Does that sound Revolutionary? I wonder what America's original Revolutionaries would think about it.
First, we need to get down on our knees and pray in thanksgiving for having been allowed this opportunity, after having squandered our inheritance as did the Prodigal Son, and having neglected our duties to God and nation so badly that we have allowed abomination in among us and deadly enemies in power over us, bringing us to the brink of physical an spiritual calamity. We need to swear to never again fall from grace, and to pursue Truth with all our might, for all of our remaining days.
And, most importantly, we need to teach truth to younger men.
Second, we need to clean house, meaning, get our enemies, be they Marxists or Moslems, out of office, in the Legislative Branch, the Executive Branch and the Judicial Branch. Which means, impeachment proceedings, on a massive scale. Anyone who violated his oath of office needs to go. We need to get Marxists, Moslems, homosexuals, gangsters and criminals out of the armed forces. We need to get women out of combat roles and out of units that go in harm's way, and out of any existing co-ed barracks arrangements. We need to get Marxists and Moslems out of intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies, and out of any security-clearance required positions on government contracts. This will require a Commander-in-Chief who is packing the required equipment to get the job done in the face of strong opposition.
Impeachments may mean a flurry of special elections, appointments and approvals of judiciary appointees, but America cannot stand for long with people whose guiding lights oppose the Constitution they falsely swore to uphold in their oaths of office.
Third, we need to Outlaw Marxism and Outlaw Islam as recognized enemy ideologies of the United States of America. Marxism, in all variants to ever exist, stands directly opposed to the Judeo-Christian Ethos of America, to the Founding Principles as laid out in our Declaration of Independence, and to our Constitutional Principles as laid out in our Constitution and Amendments. Islam, in every variant to ever exist, is just as opposed to the American ethos, the American foundation and the American Constitution as is every variant of Marxism. Islam is an aggressive and invasive theocracy that seeks to impose itself upon the whole world, by war if necessary. It is more of an invasive ideology than a religion. In that regard is is quite similar to Marxist ideology, which is designed and intended to be used to take absolute control of the world, by violent revolution or war if necessary.
There is nothing in Marxism, and there is nothing in Islam, that is not hostile to the American Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land.
Fourth, we need to pass the Fair Tax using the Fast Track method to get it operation before we successfully repeal Amendment XVI. This will at least get us to the point where all of our current entitlement programs, including Social Security and Medicare, are funded on a year-to-year basis. Once they are funded, we can look at killing them, not for current beneficiaries, but for future retirees. How to do that?
Pick a date, any date in the future; on that date,
With the elimination of the annual need to file for income taxes and the death or near death of the IRS, huge mountains of un-Constitutional anti-Christian regulations and other behavior-modifying regulations will disappear, along with the un-Constitutional regulators who made them and the giant, super expensive bureaucracy that enforced them.
Fifth, we need to drill baby drill, release holds on any pipelines or any mining or drilling permits, review the permit process itself with a view toward easing access to energy, allow licenses or permits for building or upgrading nuclear plants, and any other existing or new methods of producing power. We need to become energy independent, and an energy exporter.
Sixth, we need to Cut The Spending by killing un-Constitutional bureaucracies (listed in the right column link-list in the above link.) Every existing bureau must be examined for:
When a giant bureaucracy is eliminated, its costs are eliminated, and its employees are fired. Any regulations it un-Constitutionally created become nul and void, and there are no regulators left to enforce them.
From my point of view, using the EPA as an example, I see no legitimate reason for it to continue to exist. There is nothing about it in Article 1 Section 8, and that puts it out of scope for the federal government. Its regulators, and its myriad regulations, are un-Constitutional, since the Constitution nowhere grants Congress the power or authority to delegate its sole ability to make law to anyone outside the Congress. Law is supposed to be representative law, which is to say, legislated. Not regulated. Only Congress legislates; no one else. The Constitution says so.
Note that the Cut the Spending page, or rather the pages linked-to in its right hand column, is a work in progress; it is not completed yet. I intend to address every major federal bureaucracy there eventually. But there are only so many hours in each day.
Some eliminated departments, such as education, might mean taking the dollars that we currently spend on it and adding them instead to the people's monthyly prebate payments to aid people in paying tuition to schools or tutors of their choice.
I predict that shutting down federal bureaucracies will, all by itself, raise more hackles and resistance than any other thing we could do. Have you ever heard a pig squeal when someone, or another pig, gets between him and something he wants? Well, you ain't heard nothing yet. Just wait until a giant thundering herd of petty bureaucrats suddenly comes to the end of the gravy train.
Seventh, we need to bring back the principle of three co-equal branches of government in a strong and forceful way. What I propose is the institution (through doing it) of Congressional Review and Presidential Review, built on the model of Judicial Review. What that means is this:
There is nothing in the Constitution granting special Constitutional interpretation to any of the three co-equal branches. Judicial Review was established by legal precedent, not by the Constitution itself.
Maybury v. Madison, 5 US 137 (1803) was the landmark Supreme Court case that established Judicial Review as a solid legal precedent for all such future cases. The Court held that any law that violated the Constitution was no law. The decision was perfectly justified and the right thing to do.
It is my contention that the Congress and the Executive have exactly the same ability to set such a legal precedent. The Constitution is written in clear, simple, black and white English. I frequently have a copy in my shirt pocket. Anyone can read it and fully understand it. For any of the three branches of government to declare something to be un-Constitutional, it must truly be clearly against the Constitution as written.
An example might be the 1965 Griswold v. Connecticut decision, involving the infamous Black "penumbras formed by eminations" decision. An un-Constitutional legal precedent should be declared to be no precedent.
Other examples might be Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, which were decide based entirely on the "penumbras formed by eminations" Black decision above. As un-Constitutional legal precedents, they should be declared no precedent. These decisions had the effect of nullifying legislated state law in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and the further effect of making new law at the federal level, where new law is the Constitutionally exclusive domain of the Congress. See the details in the Abortion in America page.
Abortion is not listed in Article 1 Section 8, and none of the three co-equal branches of federal government have any Constitutional business even addressing it in law.
Another example might be the 1947 Everson case, another of Justice Black's contortions of law, in which he flagrantly lied about what the Constitution said and intended, establishing the legal precedent of Separation of Church and State. See the details in the Separation of Church and State page. This legal decision should be declared to be un-Constitutional and therefore no precedent from that day forward.
We began with quite an assumption, that we survive Obamunism and somehow get back both Houses of Congress and the White House. The way things look right now, that's quite an assumption; however, that's the only way to put these things down on paper. We (a hundred years of American history) never should have let the Constitution be "compromised" to this degree, or any degree. It worked fine just as it was written; there was never any legitimate reason to deviate from it. Government is supposed to be small; there is no need for it to be huge and complex. All it is supposed to do is govern. All it is supposed to do is written in the Constitution.
Very simple. Nothing to it.
I still say Sarah Palin is, far and away, the best man for the job, and I don't particularly give a damn what the SLIMC1 , the Democrats, the official Republican Party or any inside-the-beltway-sophist-clique members, such as Karl Rove, Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, Charles Krauthammer, etc., etc., etc. have to say about her. She's better than any of them.

Well I sure hope that Rush and Glen don't get tired of nagging at them. Fear, cowardice, and apathy will get us ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE. We are not spectators at a football game, there is no buzzer, and the program does not end. This is a matter of life and death, and the survival of decency among men.
Why are we so patient to tally up all the offenses against us, and just wish it were different. Our brethren traitors are quite resilient, aren't they? They have no intention of stopping. They know how to outlast us, delay us, and distract us. But, I assure you they do not know how to fight us, and that is what they fear.
