Conservative and America-loving ideas to preserve free markets and our way of life are considered radical and extreme by the regressive minority running the country. Even individuals who are trying to do the right thing and respect their oath of office are constantly harassed and intimidated by the political correctness (read free speech censorship) running our government.
We must honor existing international agreements, alliances, and treaties and fulfill ethical and legal obligations to our allies. Nobody should be allowed to enter into new treaties through backdoor legislation that overrides the power of the Senate to ratify treaties and any such agreements, no matter what the title; the agreements and private-public partnerships formed under the aegis of U.N. Agenda 21 should benefit the American people, not the globalist corporatist interests who have no allegiance to our country.
President Obama’s trade agenda, the trade promotion authority (TPA), would allow him to fast-track new trade deals like Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) with 12-nations from Asia to Latin America. The trade promotion authority (TPA) bill, sponsored by Senators Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Ron Wyden (D-Oregon), and Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin), would give Congress a vote on trade agreements “negotiated by the administration, but lawmakers would not have the option to amend those deals.” http://thehill.com/policy/finance/239810-obama-trade-fight-engulfs-the-capitol
If you liked the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with its millions of jobs lost and the huge U.S. trade deficit created, and none of the benefits advertised before its passing, then you are going to love the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
“This job-killing trade deal has been negotiated in secret,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). “It was drafted with input by special interests and corporate lobbyists, but not from the elected representatives of the American people.”
TPP removes any remaining impediments to shipping American jobs overseas; it will rob consumers of product safety and labeling. It will also allow for unchecked flood of immigrants from the 12 signatory countries into the United States. Foreign companies can sue the U.S. government for any damages deriving on American soil. They can pollute the environment and the fees levied by the EPA against them will be paid for by the American taxpayer directly and indirectly.
TPP is a worse threat to our national security than the declared climate change, a.k.a. seasons. Our national debt will grow exponentially and we will become consumers suffocated by debt with jobs left only in the domestic service sector.
The military should be used as a last resort with a defense apparatus based on realistic and truthful understanding of threats. Foreign policy should identify issues that may result in conflict and attempt to resolve them diplomatically first. Women in power with college activist experience should not be allowed to make decisions for the entire country when they have no real understanding of battlefield conflict issues or historical precedent.
Qualified leaders should be chosen based on their work that benefits the American people, not corporate interests, political donations, and charismatic personalities.
Redundancy in appropriations should be eliminated. The out-of-control spending that doubled our national debt in the last eight years should be curtailed.
Responsible top military leaders should build the strongest defense on the planet by using technology in every area possible, even cyber space. Decisions based on the cold war era format that started in 1947 may or may not be applicable today.
Instead of declaring climate change a national emergency and security threat, energy independence should become a defense issue by developing domestic sources of energy, an independence steered away from the Middle East countries which are steeped in religious hatred, turmoil, wars, and centuries-old tribal conflict.
The College of Education and the Common Core national standards should be immediately eliminated. They represent the “progressive” (read regressive) indoctrination into the global communist ideology and Islam.
Even though some regulations are necessary to maintain a relatively clean environment, the Environmental Protection Agency should be defunded and controlled as it overtly attempts to destroy the coal industry, the main engine of affordable energy supply for our vast economy, and the use of our land and private property.
If we are to remain an independent country, we must protect the largest source of cheap energy derived from fossil fuels, oil and coal. Because scientists have demonstrated that the earth continues to produce oil, the name fossil fuel is somewhat inaccurate and deceptive. Alternative sources of energy should not be entirely discounted but maintained as a plan B in the event of an EMP attack.
Defund any attempts to promote Green Growth, to socially re-engineer our towns, cities, our agricultural land, and stop any attempt to reshape every facet of our economic lives based on a debunked scientific hoax and a non-existent danger to the planet earth as promoted by the climate change industry and U.N.’s Agenda 21.
Do not buy into “living with less” environmentalist/global warmists agenda of housing, herding the population into “stack and pack” tiny apartments and shipping containers turned into homes smaller than most hotel rooms and prison cells, while the global elites live in mansions on the most beautiful beach front pieces of real estate in the world, the very beaches that environmentalists tell us are supposed to be underwater due to global warming melting the ice caps. As Mark Steyn said, “environmentalists are communists, green on the outside and red on the inside.” http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/steyn-environmentalists-are-communists
The Department of Energy as the main distributor of college research grants duplicates other departments. Its stated mission is now “to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions.” It has been years since we built a nuclear power plant, but we have wasted billions giving grants and subsidizing failing solar power plants and windfarms, many who have produced few and expensive kilowatts of energy, while destroying wildlife.
Can we right the ship of state before the point of no return? Are Americans willing and interested in doing so?
Is it possible to realistically right the ship of state when misguided young Americans destroy and torch their own city and businesses that could employ some of the 70 percent jobless youth? Why would a mayor “give them room” to destroy a city?
Why would useful idiots riot to turn our country into a third world basket of lawlessness, corruption, and racial hatred egged on by professional agitators who make the empty promise of non-existent communist social justice?
