How To Fix The Country

Dear Editor,

I’ve started leaning more and more to the idea that we need a third political party, and maybe even a fourth, fifth or more. After all, we are a representative republic, (sorry, we are not a democracy) so how can you say there can only be two parties?

Why? Well, look at what’s going on. Democrats and Republicans, on a national level, seem to be spending more time going after each other and not doing their job as “‘representatives of the people.” Here is what I see should be done:

  1. Repeal the 17th Amendment, which gives power back to local governments at the state and lower level.
  2. On the federal level implement term limits on House and Senate officials. We need to do away with “professional politicians.” Additionally, cut those ridiculous salaries, limit staff sizes, and look hard at all the perks, how they are abused, and fix or eliminate them. Franking is a good example.
  3. Please enforce the 10th Amendment.
  4. Elected judges should not be permitted to run under party affiliation. Lady Justice wears a blindfold for a reason.
  5. If you break the law, you go to jail, regardless of whether you are a citizen or Representative/Senator Joe Blow. Lock them up – for years!
  6. Finally, dissolve, shut down, eliminate the Department of Indoctri…I mean Education. You’ve said it enough times. Do it! Put it back where it belongs, with parents!

Now this would mean people would have to start getting more involved on a local level and that’s not a bad thing. Contrary to what some politicians say, D & R, we can do it. We may even want to consider going back to the gold standard and make the Lords and Ladies on the federal level give back the money they stole from the Social Security system. Also, stop this system of handouts federal politicians use to buy votes, funding things like teapot museums in their districts, and yes that was a real thing. As the commercial says, “it’s your money, you use it.”

Lastly, here is where they, the (National Socialist) Democrat Party, wants to move us to…socialism: a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community (read “the government’”) as a whole.

Carpe diem,
