It’s time for a do-over.
Like you, I am tired of unkept promises and rampant special interests. Faith in government has never been lower. Patriotism is in short supply. I hear a countdown clock in my mind ticking off the remaining days of our grand experiment before it becomes ancient history.
Widespread Corruption in Political Processes:
Most Americans realize our political processes are corrupt. For far too long, you can smell the pungent stench of partisanship and self-dealing. From the Chicago Political Machine to the Whitehouse Plumbers and the election abuses undertaken in the name of a COVID emergency. Marxist policies and Progressivism have been layered over our old politics, further suppressing the one thing most of us had in common: a strong sense of what should be in our national interest and the fact of open, fair, and consistent elections, which are destroyed through endless Long Voting.
Can’t we all agree that it is in our national interest to count the vote on election day? Who could be against that? Massive voting by mail could be tied to the undoing of our country. This is the nexus concern for many conservatives who don’t trust Democrats. Why not fix this unnecessary and divisive fear for millions of us for the sake of national unity? The jaded among us know all too well why this won’t happen. Prove me wrong.
Few Quick Facts Highlight in Our Nation’s Landscape:
Just a couple of quick facts should remind us that we no longer live in the same America where we grew up:
- About seven million people have diedfrom Covid-19, with almost 700 million more sickened. Given the broad debate on the origins of COVID-19, it is becoming increasingly clear that the Wuhan Lab and the Chinese military, with support from our own country, are all complicit.
- The American Middle Class shrankdue to government policies following the takeover of the economy during the Pandemic Era. This is entirely different than the issue of the disease itself and flies in the face of Biden’s claimed Bidenomics Nearly half of Americans would have trouble coming up with $500 for an emergency.
But what are we going to do about our conclusions? Nothing? So where’s the deterrence for the next time, by another enemy? Mass murders and those that deliberately weaken our country must face the consequences. Bideneconomics is a sham; who will call him out on it? The MSM?
On an average day, about 140 people die in the U.S. from Fentanyl, more than from any other drug in history. China is also the culprit of our Fentanyl crisis. Precursor chemicals are made in China and sent to Mexican labs to be made into Fentanyl. The penalty for manufacturing and distributing most illicit drugs in China is death, while here, you get a clean needle or a shot of Narcan. China exports this deadly weapon of death to America to disrupt and distract our country. Secretary of State Anthony Blinkin, engaging in meaningless negotiations with China that somehow expect our enemy to change its ways is another symptom of our weakness. How many ministerial-level Chinese have come here recently compared to the wave of high-level officials we sent, hats in hand? Isn’t it obvious our strategy is wrong?
The Civil War saw ‘only’ 500,000 dead. But, because it was a virus this time, we seem to treat this differently. Covid-19 was likely weaponized. Whether through accident or intent, it was an attack on our country. Try to prove me wrong. You can’t. Why? The Chinese won’t cooperate. In a civil trial, you only have to prove that the preponderance of evidence would make a reasonable person believe the assertion was true. I think we have exceeded that bar in the Covid-19 contention. China is responsible, just as President Trump stated. Now the question is, again, what will we do about it?
Economy Control & Pandemic Powers:
Our government’s now almost complete control of our economy has led to the introduction of initiatives impossible without the extraordinary power it granted itself during the still ongoing ‘Pandemic Emergency’ that unofficially continues. Unprecedented concepts such as the Green New Deal encompass everything from energy, population control, universal government, and even more government-enforced Wokeness. Government control and policy decisions in the new economy created through coercion of financial institutions, major corporations, and local governments and the initiation of a winners-and-losers economy have reordered our country without anyone voting to do so. Our country has been overthrown in a bloodless revolution. How many truly understand this? Worse, how many care enough to answer a call to action?
Perhaps the most significant limitation any free country has is the ability to efficiently and reliably share an understanding of what’s true and what’s not against a higher political class. Our country is confused fundamentally as this or that authoritative-sounding person or group uses highly scripted and tested language to influence you to adopt their position. Freedom of Speech is under attack in a manner and means few can fully comprehend. We must understand who is behind that Speech, particularly when the government tries to deny others their Free Speech rights.
As previously discussed, the government no longer exists to serve you, the people, but rather itself. Unfortunately, the fox runs the hen house in D.C. So, as an American Thinker, I present to you a modest proposal in order to defeat a political class. Let’s dump the Deep State. Let’s gut it and take the short-term hit to save our Republic. Such dramatic action would signal to all Americans that we have an irreconcilable crisis requiring drastic measures to fix.
Decentralize Government: Disband Washington Bureaucracies:
Why not move large parts of the government out of Washington, D.C., to decentralize our government? We should demand that entire departments be disbanded, such as the $80 billion a year Department of Education, which interferes with how States decide to educate your children. We could keep the White House, the Capital, the Supreme Court, and the Department of Defense in D.C. but move everything else out. We outgrew Washington, D.C., years ago. Two hundred fifty years of the Potomac two-step has mainly delivered a better-paid political class that considers itself superior to the rest of us. Mockingjay anyone?
Technology has eliminated the need for centralized government. Although many nominally work in D.C., many are still at home. That is all the proof you need. Time to spread around some of the largesse of working for the U.S. Career Civil Service, where the average employee makes $117,228 a year! You need to look that up! That’s more money than the average entrepreneur who takes on risk and hard work earns, all without guarantees. Yet, federal workers take their jobs as a right.
Some Federal workers do work hard, but comparisons are striking. 364,000 Federal employees ‘work’ in the District of Columbia. Hundreds of thousands more lawyers, lobbyists, contractors, and others there aim to figure out how to game the system in a client’s favor, frequently successfully! Since murdering those parasitic leeches is illegal, we’ll have to live with them like the fleas they are. Smarter people than me have tried to figure out how to undo this abomination.
Political Class Curbing Influence: Reforming the Revolving Door
There’s nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come. What’s your favorite way to save the Republic?
God Bless America!
