"r" is for Republican

From Mike Church, here is an action list to bring our republic back to the vision of the founders. Scary! Crazy! Unworkable! If you have this kind of reaction to these issues, ask yourself: what would the founders think of our present system? They would not recognize the government which they gave to us, let alone be able to describe what type of government we have.


1. Freeze all federal hiring, this includes funding requests from the executive branch to hire.


2. Repeal the Budget Act of 1974 and all it’s contingent COLA “mandates” no matter the agency or program they are applicable to.


3. Freeze under threat of rescinding funding any and all new regulations currently under review or consideration


4. Have an up or down vote on a Declaration of War with Iraq and with Afghanistan. if either fails then troop withdrawals must begin immediately.


5. Pass the Private Property Restoration Act which among other things shall forbid any federal magistrate from hearing any cases to restrict use of private property.


6. Repeal the AMT permanently by statute.


7. Repeal the capital gains tax.


8. Refuse to fund the Education Department and the Department of Energy, any programs, grants projects or construction begun under these agencies must cease. The EPA’s charter must be rewritten to make it clear that it only has jurisdiction over federal and or territorial waters and land. [The EPA can be eliminated by executive order, and should be.]


9. Repeal ObamaCare and all contingent legislation. Congress must then use legitimate Commerce Clause powers to “make commerce regular” and remove from the tax code all subsidies, all claims of tax credit, any and all restrictions federal law imposes on the sale or use of major medical health insurance. This must include federal recognition of PPO, HMO or other plans created to satisfy Congress.


10. Repeal the FICA and sunset the program by Jan 1, 2030. Establish a cutoff date for continued payment eligibility such as born on or before December 31, 1959.


11. Repeal the Patriot Act of 2001, 2005 and sunset the Department of Homeland Security on or before December 31, 2012.


12. Repeal all mandates, taxes and law pertaining to the SCHIP program.


13. Announce the return of U.S. Gold and Silver bullion coins as legal tender and order the treasury to begin the purchase of bullion with the intent of eliminating paper currency in favor of gold and silver coin and gold and silver coin backed notes.


14. Pass the Debt Consolidation and Repayment Act. This Act will require the sale of all lands currently “owned” by the U.S. government which do not house “needful buildings, docks, arsenals, forts and magazines”. This is not limited to “Parks” and “National forests”. All proceeds are to be solely applicable to the repayment of the U.S. Governments outstanding debts both domestic and foreign.


15. End the federal tax designations enacted and known as 501 (c), (g), 503, 527 e.g. “non-profits”.


16. Repeal the “Income tax withholding act” and enact an immediate and deduction free, flat income tax law, payable once per year by each citizen.


17. Repeal all corporate and business interest, income and profit taxation.


18. Heed the call of 38 states that shall call a convention to amend the Constitution under Article V of the U.S. Constitution.



Mr. Church admits that this is not an exhaustive list. I would add (as part of an Article V convention or on its own) the repeal of Amendment XVII, the direct election of Senators by the people.

Wake up and swallow the founder's red pill. Your country needs you.

CORRECTION --

Number 18 should read: 18. Heed the call of 34 states that shall call a convention to amend the Constitution under Article V of the U.S. Constitution.

38 States must ratify amendments.
