I never swore an oath to protect and defend the constitution. I'm not a government employee or military service member or a politician & I do a better
job at trying to defend & protect the constitution than many of them do, especially leftists. I'm grateful for the military/police/politicians who are
actually trying to defend & protect the constituion & in turn protect our country & I have the utmost respect for them.
There are more jobs available than can be filled in the private sector right now. If my job stopped paying me I'd be looking for another job. Also,
our country is $22 trillion in debt. With the debt increasing exponentially, there may come a time soon when the government can't afford to pay its
employees because the dollar may become worthless through more hyperinflation of the money supply (Quantitative Easing). Our border will be much
easier to defend with volunteers and a wall vs volunteers and no wall.
Fyi, I would like a smaller government & I believe we should replace all federal social/welfare programs with a UBI (Universal Basic Income). For the
same cost as all current federal social/welfare programs, each U.S. citizen who is over 18 & who doesn't receive a federal pension can receive a UBI
of @ $1,600 per month, regardless if they have a job or not. People can use their UBI money in the free market on basic needs like food, housing,
health insurance & higher education. Criteria can be established to be eligible to receive consecutive years UBI, like a requirement to have health
insurance. A UBI which replaces all current social/welfare programs can be implemented without raising taxes or touching military spending.
I'm also for giving men $10K when they turn 18 if the volunteer to have a vasectomy and/or give women $10K when they turn 18 if they volunteer to have
their tubes tied. If they can afford to have the procedure(s) reversed and/or In Vitro Fertilization with frozen eggs, they can afford to have
