Well, I have a plan. That plan is simple on paper but very difficult to be carried out by those who are unwilling to make a commitment.
First of all a Republic, as we are stated by our Constitution, is a form of government based on law, the law being the Constitution itself. While some
of the later amendments will certainly have to be revised to return from the corrupted state we have entered, the Constitution is the supreme law for
a reason, and should the articles be ENFORCED, then there shall be no need for any disagreement.
First of all, in terms of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion - they shall give no reason to persecute or discriminate. If you decide to tread
upon another persons rights and freedoms you will be punished and prosecuted. The same goes for both sides of the table.
In terms of people who feel their children are being indoctrinated by such things such as "gays" or "religious nuts" then that will be up to the
parent to seek another means of education. All school bodies will be required to provide open syllabus and curriculum to parents so that they know
what their kids are being taught and they are given the choice of what that might be.
In the terms of Congress, the current administration will be removed from office immediately. For the time, a stand in congress will take control
until such time is given that the people are able to properly vote for new candidates. However, this is the portion that NEEDS an amendment
immediately. Their must be an amendment added to the Constitution that places a spending cap on all political office elections and makes accepting any
form of monetary donations or influence, whether it be as a candidate (on the campaign trail) or as a member of congress (lobbyists), illegal. The
exchange of money within Congress or between candidates and outside parties will be strictly prohibited and should this law be violated, the offender
will be removed from their position, voided from ever running for public office again, and charged in a criminal court.
Also, the same term limits that apply to President of the United States will apply to all other positions in the political spectrum, from Congress to
Supreme Court justices.
As stated by others, income tax must be abolished and a restructuring of of monetary gain by the government body must take place. Seeing as how the
government will be severely limited in power compared to now, significantly less monetary funding will be needed.
Foreign policy will be next to non existent as I believe all American troops would be pulled out of foreign bases and brought home. The extend of
foreign policy will be in the issue of defending out borders and managing imports and exports. We are not here to be a world police.
Another idea I happen to be fond of was posted by littlebunny in another topic, that was the addition of a fourth branch of government made up of
people strictly appointed to watch over the other branches and prosecute for corruption. They will have no legislative power, only the power to assess
and prosecute those who are guilty of corruption within the other three branches.
In terms of most other stuff, that is really it. Government is not necessary to regulate our daily lives. Business will go on, people will continue
living, and as long as everyone lives within the boundaries of their own rights guaranteed by the Constitution, and does not infringe upon the rights
of another, then that will be the Republic that America is supposed to have.
Those are just a few of the things off the top of my head. Many may have been mentioned thought I did not read every post in this topic.
All I can say is that anyone who advocated racism or discrimination and calls themselves a "Patriot" or "Constitutionalist" really needs to take a
look at that document you all claim to be defending. The rights guaranteed within are INALIENABLE, which means they apply to everybody, regardless of
personal beliefs or differences.
Some people need to get that through their heads if they ever hope for a real revolution.
