TEOTWAWKI, What I Want.

After yesterdays post even I was depressed. I tried to point out what could happen and maybe cause some to rethink their ideas.
I hope the worst does not happen, in fact I hope for the best. I would really like for us to elect true patriots who value and defend the constitution and who would overturn all the social programs except to those who are truly in need.
Personally I think they should do away with corporate tax. Corporations don't pay tax anyway they just collect it from us and pass it along to the government, what it would do however is start a stampede of business trying to get into the United States and people would have to go into hiding to avoid getting a job. Manufacturing would be back in force and government revenue would be maxed out from all the growth and spending. I would like to see the federal government loose all power except that over the military and maybe the interstate highways everything else would be controlled by the state, this is basically what the founding fathers envisioned anyway, If this would happen you would have 50 different states to move to in order to find the one that allowed you to have the freedom you desired. People who wanted tight controls over their lives would gravitate to certain locations while others would move to less restrictive states, this is the way it used to be and to a small degree it still is but the federal government can over ride the states.



I know all this may be a pipe dream and maybe it could never happen but I do see some young people speaking out so maybe there is hope. I don't really think the occupy movement is anywhere near the majority of the young people they just get the most media coverage. It took us generations to get into this mess and it may take generations to get us out. It will have to be done in small steps and that would be better than TWOTWAWKI situation as I have tried to point out. I tend to think anything is possible. In the 70's the USSR was the big bad wolf who wanted to control the world and nobody really saw a solution to them but now they are not a real threat so nothing is ever beyond hope. We just need to vote out any self-serving politicians and replace them with true patriots....one at a time.  Anyway, that is what I hope for.

  1. Hey Duke, and if you read about the lives of the founding fathers they were real people with real lives to lead. They did what they did as a service to their country, not as a life long, never ending feeding at the hog trough. They had farms and businesses and families to get back to as soon as possible. These career politicians that never go home. that are always trying to think up the next wonderful thing to do for us, they need to leave us alone and go get a life. And that goes for all of them, regardless of political party. Don

    1. As a matter of fact, I redid the photo over on my blog and put a stupid satire story to it, just for kicks and giggles.

  5. Duke -

    Sounds like an excellent business plan for the US, and for us. I'm raising my young people in the vein to do what's right, and hopefully teaching by example, too.

    From our wishes to voters' ears......
