A true relationship of equality. Using both of your strengths and weaknesses to form a strong unit of harmony. What I would give.....

Now the unanswerable questions. How do we change? When there are so few of us that want to try living by that 'antiquated' document. To try and reduce our government and the control it has over us is almost impossible when we are outnumbered by those who love the handouts and the full insulation from failure of their own bad decisions.

The only way I see it at this point in time is states rights. Then somehow come up or even revert back to the constitution where delegations of responsibility not directly attributed to the government are the sole rights of the states. But even then we have to come up with an agreement between all of us on which powers will be left to the feds. If we don't reach a majority consensus, we will never be able to topple the oligarchs who are in power and restore our republic back to its rightful form.

At least if we had 50 states to choose from, a person could live where the population shared similar values for the most part. Then we could truly see what works and what doesn't. Every state would have to live within its means and would not be able to produce currency/fiat out of thin air anymore. If they were able to support a vast welfare state, good for them. But if not, they would be forced to confront reality and limited resources.

I think our greatest challenge is to educate and empower the individual and the family to minimize dependency on government, and to promote and encourage innovation, independence, self-sufficiency and resourcefulness. A strong republic is dependent on a strong people. We need life skills to be taught to our kids. We need shop classes and other marketable skills to be returned to our schools. We need to find ways to keep more parents at home raising young kids and providing daily life lessons and a good role model. We need to reinstate Glass-Stegall and repeal Leach Bliley and return to affordable housing. We need to focus on proper food shopping and preparation and eating, on nurturing and maintaining our health, and how to nurse ourselves when necessary.

We need to revisit the Social Contract, re-declare that government governs at the consent of the governed, and must act in the best interests of the people. We must return to true transparency in government, and demand the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. We need to end the Federal Reserve and the personal earned income tax. We need to reform incorporation laws and charters, as well as intellectual property laws (copyrights and patents), which limits opportunities and therefore competition and creates monopolies and price gouging.

Perhaps most of all, we need to stop trying to force anything on anyone, stop trying to punish and hurt people we don't like, but find ways to promote and reward the best behavior that benefits all of society.

More healthcare professionals speaking up for these kids:


While respecting individuals’ right to a different viewpoint, it is neither mandatory to affirm their beliefs nor automatic that transition is the goal, particularly when dealing with children, adolescents and young adults. These risk closing the ‘open future’, as well as life-long physical problems including lack of sexual function, infertility and medical dependency. With 85% desistance amongst referred transgender children (8) and increasing awareness of detransitioning (9, 10), unquestioning ‘affirmation’ as a pathway that leads gender dysphoric patients to irreversible interventions cannot be considered sole or best practice.
