2nd American Revolution!

What do I mean by the ‘2nd American Revolution’.

I close most of my politically oriented blogs with the same statement: “Wake-Up America… It’s time for the 2nd American Revolution”. Someone ask me… exactly what do I mean by that statement? Do you mean a full civil uprising? A violent takeover of Congress?… maybe the White House? … and then there’s the Judicial Branch? A Coup de Grace of sorts? An unprecedented use of the Military? Citizens marching into the Capitol and offering the lying, self serving scoundrels a simple choice: 1) leave now… never to return inside the beltway… or 2) be machine gunned in your seat?

What exactly do I mean when I say… “It’s time for the 2nd American Revolution! It’s pretty simple… any or all of the above! I really don’t care how it’s done but we need a dramatic change in Washington D.C. We need to return to the ideals established by the founding fathers and the principles of the U.S. Constitution. Our nation’s Capitol is full of corrupt politicians, lobbyists, liars, tax cheats, modern day money changers, criminals in white collars…basically… almost all of our representatives are scum bags and need to be removed from inside the beltway.

Here’s a few suggestions:
1) We need ‘Term Limits’. 2 terms in the House and one term in the Senate. If you’re in now… you’re out at the next election and you must stay out for at least 2 terms before you can return. No longer can being a politician be a ‘full time’ job. It's a privledge and honor to serve your constituents… not a career! In addition, ALL elections will be publicly funded. Evenly funded with no outside organization trying to buy politicians!
2) Nullify ALL CFR’s (Codes of Federal Regulations) and return to State Law for your legal system. Yes there will be some confusion but the States will work out the details.
3) Outlaw lobbyists. Anyone attempting to influence a politician with any type of financial gain will face a minimum of 30 years, hard time, with no chance for parole on the first offense… the death sentence on the second offense!
4) Congress will only be in session a maximum of 3 month per year. If they are not ‘in session’… they can’t spend billions we don’t have!
5) Eliminate deficit spending unless in the case of a national security approved and confirmed by a majority of State Legislatures.
6) The Executive Branch of the Federal Government should only be involved in a very limited number of matters.
a) the use of active duty military on foreign soil and Veteran affairs (DOD)
b) foreign relations (State Dept)…
c) the safety and efficacy of pharmaceuticals and medical devices (FDA)
d) International Intelligence (CIA)…
e) Domestic Security (Homeland Security and National Intelligence)
f) Monetary policy (printing money, Treasury)

Eliminate the majority of Federal agencies: Send these Federal employees home!
Dept of Energy:Failed to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
Dept of Education: Education is a local and State issue… not a centralized government issue.
Dept of Agriculture: Let the free market determine farm markets. Free markets work!
Dept of Labor: Labor is a local issue.
Dept of Transportation: The FAA can handle aircraft issues. NTSB the rest.
Dept of Interior: Each State can handle its own affairs.
Dept of Commerce: Free markets work… government planning does not!
Dept of HHS: now a State issue.
Dept of Justice: now a State issue.

Any proposed new law must be published for public review for at least 30 days prior to any vote.

Congressional Representatives are subject to the same laws and programs as U.S. Citizens. No special retirement or healthcare programs specifically for Congressional Representatives.
Federal Taxes can never be more than 5% of individual or Corporate net income unless approved by a 2/3 majority of State Legislatures. No citizen should have to work more than ½ day for the Federal Government. (each State will develop its own tax policy)

I’ve made some suggestions that will reduce the size of the Federal Government and reverse the massive power grab we’ve experienced over the last 70 years. I’d like to hear your suggestions!
