The Constitution, an imperfect document, is perfect for these imperfect times, and is the moral fiber necessary for maintaining our limited government Republic and defending every human’s right to their life, their liberty, and their property.
Bring our troops home. Only Congress has the authority to declare war per Article 1 of the Constitution and we cannot afford to police the world. If you understand the flawed economics of the Green New Deal then consider the same economic principles of American regime change wars and nation building. In addition, we need to cut all taxpayer funded foreign aid and put America's taxpayers first again.
War on Drugs
The federal government's war on drugs has been a social, political, and economic failure. I believe in a human's right to their liberty and to peacefully choose how they live their lives. It is not the role of the federal government to manage our lives. This liberty over our body is the fundamental objection of the idea that somebody else knows better than we do, how we should live our lives. As a proponent of small government, I don't think big government solutions are the answer.
Let's audit, then abolish the Federal Reserve. Why? Because of their failed history of intervention in markets, creation of artificial boom and bust cycles, and utter destruction of the money supply through currency inflation. The debasement of our currency is evidenced by the 97% devaluation of the dollar since the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913. This hidden inflation tax punishes savers, and most severely harms the poor and middle class.
Taxes, Spending, and the Federal Budget
Federal spending is out of control! The continued deficit spending and growth in the national debt is a bipartisan failure. We cannot tax our way out of this. Taxation is a moral dilemma and we should minimize the immorality of forcibly taking peoples' property. In the case of the massive national debt, it is textbook 'taxation without representation' for future generations of the country.
"...shall not be infringed." I believe in a human's right to their life and their ability to defend it. Especially for women, the elderly, and the disabled, firearms provide equality in their ability to defend their lives.
Government programs, subsidies, and over-regulation have failed in the healthcare industry. The solution is most certainly not more government programs, subsidies, and regulation. We should foster free market solutions in order to make healthcare more affordable.
Government programs, subsidies, and over-regulation have failed in the education industry. The solution is most certainly not more government programs, subsidies, and regulation. We should foster free market solutions in order to make higher education more affordable.
We should continue improving the process for hardworking people to migrate to the United States while simultaneously minimizing the taxpayer funded incentives for people to become part of a welfare system. In 2020, we should secure the border with appropriations from Congress per Article 1 of the Constitution of the United States.
I believe in a human's right to their life and to not be killed. By definition, life is the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body. Therefore, personally, I believe that life begins at the heartbeat. With the federalist and Constitutional approach, states can administer policy in a way that minimizes the federal governments role in our lives, including ending taxpayer funded abortion.
I mean climate change -- Look, there is a lot of conflicting information out there. The federal government doesn't have a role in forcing personal responsibility when it comes to taking care of the environment, and I care about the environment, that's why I don't want the government involved. It is a shame we only have eleven years and two months left to live, otherwise we could more thoroughly debate this...
