In my view, our federal government is off the rails. This condition is not limited to the daily stories of the FBI, DOJ, IRS, but they certainly do highlight the problem. When federal institutions become so highly politicized, the preferred political agenda of the party in control becomes the agenda of the nation, political loyalty begins to determine legal outcomes, and the expansion of government infringes on individual liberty. All of this allows partisan loyalty to overshadow transparency, corruption and abuse of power begin to erode individual liberty, and the concept of limited government, and the polarization/division begin to erode our sense of unity.
Add to this the lack of understanding of who America is and what America stands for, and you have the perfect storm we face today.
We are now in our 7th year of desperately searching for something that would remove/disqualify Donald J. Trump from any important aspect of our governance. In that time, we have seen no shortage of important, plugged in movers and shakers, that seemingly could not possibly be charged with a crime, even though the evidence of a crime is dripping from them. If you are loyal to the progressive agenda, you seemingly have all the protection in the world, but if you are loyal to the concept of limited government, and individual liberty, you clearly must be prosecuted in a manner that makes an example of you. There isn’t even a fear of saying the quiet part out loud.
Our federal government no longer feels bound by the constitution. Our federal government lies to us routinely. Our federal government seems to work towards the undermining of our children and grandchildren’s future. For these reasons, and to preserve our republic, I call for an overhaul, and/or elimination of several key cabinet level departments of our Federal Government.
The FBI and DOJ clearly have crossed into the realm of political advocacy. Hillary Clinton, Hunter Biden, and everything about the investigations into each, juxtapositioned with the Donald Trump investigations, and how everyone associated with him was treated, illustrate clearly the issue. The only way the FBI, and DOJ should be allowed to continue to exist as they are, is if there is a thorough house cleaning, and those organizations can return to objective law enforcement. The most reliable way to do that is to rebuild them from the ground up.
The Department of Education should be nearly eliminated. States can see to the education of their citizens, and the Department of Education’s only role should be to return the money to the states if they teach the constitution and the Bill of Rights. Our country will only survive as the beacon of freedom if our citizens understand how unique our country is, and how important it is to protect our founding ideals.
Generally, our government has grown much faster than our population or inflation. Since 1985, our population has grown by .33%, our annual budget has grown 700%, and our national debt has grown 1000%. It is staggering, and considering the inflation has been nearly non-existent, and wages have only doubled, the result is a much larger federal bureaucracy working daily to ensure its continued existence rather than ensuring liberty, freedom, and security.
It is for these reasons that I call for the Congress to overhaul the FBI, and the DOJ, as well as nearly eliminate the Department of Education. Once complete, a reduction in the size and scope of our government as a whole is required to weaken our federal bureaucracy enough that citizens once again control the fate of our republic. It is our choice. Send people to congress who will seize control of our future from the “deep state” or sentence our progeny to the mediocracy of socialist Europe, and hand the future to the communist Chinese.
