Default The BASICS are so simple....


From the Book: Liberty & Tyranny, pages 199-205 by Mark Levin
President of Landmark Legal Foundation

1. TAXATION: Eliminate the progressive income tax-replace with a flat or national sales tax-for its purpose is to redistribute
wealth. Eliminate withholding of taxes, for it conceals the extent to which the federal government is confiscating income from
citizens. Eliminate corporate income tax for it is nothing more than double taxation on shareholders and consumers, and penalizes
wealth and job creation. Eliminate the death tax, for it denies citizens the right to confer the material value they have created during
their lives. Limit federal spending each year to less that 20% of the gross domestic product.

2. Environment : Eliminate special tax exempt status to environmental groups. Eliminate Special statutory granting environmental
groups standing to bring lawsuits on behalf of the public. since their purpose is to pursue the Statist’s agenda through
litigation. Fight all efforts to use environmental regulations to set governmental policies and diminish the nation’s standard of
living, such as ‘cap and trade---.

3. Judges : Limit the Supreme Court’s judicial-review power which far exceeds the Framers’ intent, by establishing a legislative
veto over Court decisions--. Eliminate lifetime tenure for federal judges---.

4. THE ADMINISTRATIVE STATE: Sunset all “independent” federal agencies each year, subject to Congress affirmatively reestablishing
them. Require federal departments and agencies to reimburse individuals and enterprises for the costs asociated with
the devaluation of their private property from the issuance of regulations that compromise the use of their property. Eliminate
unions for federal government employees, since the purpose of a civil service system is to promote merit and professionalism
over patronage, and the purpose of federal unions is to empower themselves and promote statism. Reduce the civilian federal
workforce by 20 percent or more.

5. GOVERNMENT EDUCATION: Eliminate monopoly of government education by applying the antitrust laws to the National
Education Association and American Federation of Teachers
; the monopoly is destructive of quality education and competition
and is unresponsive to the taxpayers who fund it. Eliminate tenure for government schoolteachers and college/university professors,
making them accountable for the quality of instruction they provide students. Strip the statist agenda from the curricula ---
reinforce curricula with actual education and the preservation of the civil society through its core principles. Eliminate the federal
Department of Education, since education is primarily a state and local function.

6. IMMIGRATION: Eliminate chain migration, which grants control over immigration policy to aliens and foreign governments
and which the Statist defends to expand his electoral and administrative state constituency. Secure the nation’s borders. End multiculturalism,
diversity and bilingualism in public institutions--promote allegiance to American culture, and English as the official
national language.

7. ENTITLEMENTS: Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid is going bankrupt. These programs have accumulated more than $50
trillion in IOU’s and payable by subsequent generations. Educate the young people about the intergenerational trap the Statist has
laid for them--. Fight nationalized health-care, the mother of all entitlement programs, for through it the Statist controls material
wealth and personal well being.--

8. FOREIGN POLICY AND SECURITY: Reject all treaties, entanglements, institutions and enterprises that supplant America’s
best interests for the purpose of “global” interest. Ensure that America remains the world’s superpower. Ensure that at all times
America’s military forces are prepared for war to dissuade attacks, encourage peace and, if necessary, WIN any war.

9. FAITH: Oppose all efforts to denude the nation of its founding justification-that is, God-given unalienable, natural rights that
the government can neither confer on the individual or deny to him.

10. THE CONSTITUTION: Demand that all public servants, elected or appointed, at all times uphold the Constitution and justify
their public acts under the Constitution. Oppose all efforts to “constitutionalize” the statist agenda. Elliminate limits on and rationing
of political speech through unconstitutional “campaign finance” laws which benefit incumbent politicians, the media, unions,
and other Statist relate dgroups. Any American citizen or group of American citizens should be free to contribute as they wish as
long as the source, amount, and recipient of the contributions are made known. Defeat all efforts to unconstitutionally regulate the
content of political speech on broadcast outlets--. The Statist seeks to silence noncompliant voices through regulation---.

Good Read. Makes you wonder how these lairs are going around the Constitution with bills & amendments that are unconstitutional... such as the new Obama-Care being a PERMANENT fixture that cannot be reversed????

I think these CROOKED officials should be taken to the United States Supreme Court for Treason!!! Our founding fathers would ROLL OVER in their graves!!!!
