I dont see the point of posting a quote stating the english crown nover relinquished control over american commer ce. Lol who cares if they gave us
permission, or even acknowledged what happened, the fact of the matter is we never asked permission, we took this land and our freedom from them,
there was nothing they coukd do to stop it.
You act like I have to give permission to the guy that robs me to be abke to steal and hock my stuff.
To the op, I have a lot of answers to some of this stuff, and honest souktions that I think woukd go a long way to fixing quite a lot, I will give you
several examples, and a brief descriotion of each, and how they woukd help.
The minimum wage should be repealed, forever, as it is not fair at all to require a mom and pop business to pay the same as walmart mcdonalds
Instead mnimum wages should be comoany specific, more to the point, they shoukd be linked to comoany profits, as walmart makes hundreds of billions in
profits, by forcing their workers into welfare, meaning the people are simply cutting a check to the richest corp on earth for billions dexaue they
are too cheap to pay their employees enough.
Make it illegal for any company that has overten million a year in profits not to comply, upto and inckuding the IRS seizing and redistributing assets
of companies that dont comply. The rule should be your pay roll should be equal to or greater than half your profits, as the ones making all that
money for you (the workers ) deserve a fair shake.
Now before some of you try to claim walmart employess dont deserve that much pay, I disagree, and so does the market and reality. As they are making
the money for walmart, obviously your mistaken, as their work is worth hundreds of billions a year to the company. They are obviousky worth a lot.
No politician shiuld be paid more than the average worker in their district, if your in a district where the average is $12, 000 a year, thats your
salary. No more voting yourself a pay raise, and this shoukd also help with the wrong peopoe getting into it for the wrong reasons.
No more special intersts or lobbying, period. If you take a penny from anyone when serving the people in public office it shoild be an automatic
mandatory minimum of 10 years without the possibility of early release. Forfeture of at least half your pubkic holdings, and no sirt of pubkic
assistance at all ever for the rest of your life, pelk grants welfare etc... nothing.
No war should be possible without congess declaring war, period, full stop. I mean it too, literally no war, of any type, not one single boot on the
ground anywhere for any reason without congressional approval, as the office of president has already proven his powers to send limited amounts of
troops without congressional approval has been used and abused to often for too long, for too many frivolous reasons.
Our job isnt paying others bills when we are going bankrupt, we should cut off all foreign aid to all countries for good, I mean all, without
exception. The people bmp of africa starving isnt our problem, if they woild have 35 kids a family there woikdnt be to many mouths to feed, as it is
onky that they have more people than the land can sustain, so let em figure it out, we didnt cause the problem, so we are not gonna be able to fix it
either onky they can come up with somtujng that is going to work for them.
Cut iur navy into 7 pieces and use 6 of them for scrap metal ( budget problem solved, and that wasnt even trying) as at present our navy is by far the
largest in the world, but do you understand what that means? Yes it is the largest, but my god... if you take the next 17 largest navies in the world
and add them together, ours is only slightly larger. WHAT? Yes I said ours is slightly larger than then next 17 largest combined. Absolutely
ridiculous waste of rescources.
Use several of our now decommissioned nuclear carriers for other more profitable means. How much does the worlds largest freighter ship cost to
ooerate just in fuel? Hhmmm we have these giant ships, thT are faster than just about anything that floats of any size, that doesnt require standard
fuel, in fact, it can run at full speed for 15 years before it is on half a tank. Woukd make one hell of a cargo carrier, if is big enough, it is
faster than any other container ship on the planet by far, and it doesnt drink fuel. Great way for the .gov to finance itself, so the tax payers arent
on the hook so much.
Close every single base over seas, period, no exceptions at all. The world hates us so much, let em have what they want, stop providing securit for
all these countries at our own cost. I bet money in less than a year they would beg us back into most places, unfortunately, for them, we wont be
End all funding and troop deoyments to the UN.
Just for staters, I could go on.
