A SMALLER, GENTLER GOVERNMENT OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE

THE CONSTITUTION WAS CREATED IN A SLOWER, GENTLER TIME, BEFORE TV AND THE INTERNET. THERE WAS NO INCOME TAX, NO IRAN (AS FAR AS WE KNEW), NO WELFARE. THE RULES FOR THE GOVERNING OFTHE US WERE RELATIVELY SIMPLE. PUBLIC SERVICE WAS PUBLIC SERVICE!! AND EVERYBODY WAS PRETTY MUCH EQUAL.

TIMES HAVE CHANGED. WORLDWIDE COMMUNICATION IS VIRTUALLY INSTANTANEOUS.  THE GOVERNMENT, INTENDED TO BE "OF THE PEOPLE", HAS JUST ABOUT ABSORBED THE PEOPLE, SOMETIMES BY A LOOSE INTERPRETATION OF THE CONSTITUTION.  STRICTLY LEGAL, "THEY" SAID. STRICTLY BY THE RULES!! AND WE FOUND THAT SOME OF US ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS

WE NEED SOME NEW RULES OF THE GAME. WE NEED A STRATEGIC PLAN TO METHODICALLY UNDO THE DAMAGES DONE BY UNWARY BUREAUCRATS OVER USA'S LIFETIME. WE NEED TO RESPONSIBLY MODIFY OUR PRECIOUS CONSTITUTION!!! IT WILL TAKE TIME.

HERE ARE SOME OF MY IDEAS AS TO HOW TO GET BACK ON TRACK.   WHAT I HAVE IN MIND IS FOR A GENUINE CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE TO DEVELOP AND RUN ON A GENUINE PLAN WITH MEASURABLE GOALS, STRICT TIMELINES, AND MANDATORY PERFORMANCE STANDARDS, INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING. FEEL FREE TO EMAIL YOUR COMMENTS.
