The growing concerns of
encroachment on individual freedoms and pressures from government regulations
on free enterprise have in the last half of this century entrenched themselves
in such a way that there is nothing left to do but cut out the problem
from the core.
The first goal is to outline the
already obvious attacks on freedom and then implement solutions of true
The problems stem from many socialized
bureaucratic branches of government such as zoning. Zoning is one which
forces the smallest industries into high valued areas of taxation unreachable
by many, holding back natural growth of industries. Especially effected
are cottage type industries by which zonings stringent, erratically changing
policies and ordinances force individuals into the open arms of the federal
government whose growth is un-tethered.
It is sad that we will spend billions
of dollars to support a huge bureaucracy of 'paper pushers' who do nothing
but regulate freedoms and who receive huge benefits most can not support;
then proclaim a social medical assistance program seems so terrible.
Unchecked taxation continues to increase
dependency by creating more government jobs that simply regulate but do
not actually produce anything of value.
Government worker benefits are
socialized medicine. When most of the country cannot afford the doctor, dental,
health, insurance and retirement benefits of their public servants, yet
must pay for their public servants to have them, there is something very
wrong. Jealousy is not a factor when people jump ship into socialism just
to ride on the backs of others hardships. Either we socialize medicine altogether
or make all government agencies cancel all benefits and make them pay for
it out of their own pocket so they can have a sense of what its like in
the real world. I believe first in the latter, so that the government can
afford be gracious to all those in real need when necessary and not just
the few who have secured a government position.
Another travesty is the inability
to fire government employees because they are backed by a union who fights
tooth and nail for its union "employees". Freedom has no use for unions in
the government. All employees should be subject to the peoples stringent
requirements and accountabilities for the job and protected only by their
record of good service and public need. If there is no need, there is
no job. Government service should
not be considered job security at the expense and on the backs of others.
Check on Corruption
Because free enterprise in the medical
field has not been curtailed in price gouging, a practice considered a crime
when arising in other areas of business practices, they have incited reason
for their own controls under the monopoly laws. Monopoly laws were created
to keep individuals or groups from completely controlling all factions of
wealth in any given area of manufacture and to keep price fixing out of
a free country; which is the same as any other organized crime. Most technology
is paid by the public, and whenever that technology has became common place,
the prices should drop to allow the lower income people access, not by government
programs, but by "Real Value" worth. An example: MRI's have been out long
enough to be had at the price of a McDonalds hamburger, if made that freely
available. As it is no science to move people in and out of those machines
at a faster rate. Instead they charge a $1000.oo or more plus ridiculously
high doctor, short stay and other fees. By lowering the price you would
increase the numbers of people access.
It is accepted that property, sales
taxes, income taxes, insurance and other factors such as government controlled
electric power prices are part of the high cost factor, however these have
also been a subject of concern of waste. With the presenting of a new tax
system and the abolishment of property, income
and sales taxes, these prices could be lowered even more by reducing price
gouging at every level.
Food / Health
Services and Company, Corporate, Government Subsidized Profits - Price Gouging
Lets say a farmer has to sell his
$1.oo goods at $2.oo. There is no excuse, that aside from his
.50 cents to $1.oo he pays in taxes, (25%-50% of his income now paid that helped finance the schools,
roads, power, and programs that helped build that technology), that he should pay more than 2 or 3 or more dollars
for a .0000001 cent piece of film and 25.oo for 1 hours work from a technician
who really needs no more education than a gas station attendant to seat the
patient in the proper position a push a button to let a computer automatically
take a picture(s). In charging $1,000.oo to $2,000.oo there is no difference
here to a thief ripping a two thousand dollar bill out of a mans wallet
or charging the same amount to a man dying for thirst in the desert for
a canteen of water. Don't give me this free enterprise or supply and demand
excuse, it doesn't fly here. Not in a industries such as food or medical
that people must use to to live. There is a tremendous difference between
gouging a person for a toy he does not need and a health service he must
have to live.
Technology in the health fields should
be given a limit to pay for its development then forced down to reality
so that the people that financed it can benefit from it. No one person
makes money on his own, people support him through their patronage.
If you don't think so, try making money without customers. The crime comes
when government takes money from you, the common citizen, to pay corporations
to develop technology who in turn sell it back to you for a unfair profit
spouting that technology of this sort is expensive. They are right, it is
expensive, and you as the public collectively have paid for it already.
The supply and demand issue is fine
in luxury items, but is never acceptable in human health needs, in the affordability,
availability and in all technological accessibility.
Free enterprise in corporate
form and the government has become intelligent enough (wilely actually)
over the years to begin corrupting the country by working the two sides
one against one another; much to the delight of special interest groups
that feed themselves in the turmoil, and do the same on a regular basis.
Two good recent examples of corporate
corrupt strategies have been seen in the Oil companies and the Auto industries.
A recent move to sell out the rest
of the country by the oil companies, was a attempt to buy rights to continue
pumping oil in Alaska. This was attempted by proposing to give the government
billions of dollars in the CARA bill. The bill would have transferred the
money paid by oil companies (so they could continue to pump oil) to the
government to buy up thousands of acres of private land throughout
the U.S. for the purpose of turning the land into wildlife refuges.
Why would a free enterprise spend
billions selling out others instead of spending the billions fighting for
not only themselves, but others to drill in Alaska? The answer is plain:
they did not want others drilling in Alaska. What fools and traitors.
For freedom to work, it has to be
affordable and available to every single person with no exorbitant fees or
unattainable feats because of regulation.
The auto industry has been no better
if not worse. How could a country with such technology build such useless
engines for which parts have become so complicated and fall apart almost
like clockwork. Especially in and through a auto regulatory commission that
spouts safety and quality.
Just look at the recalls on American
vehicles compared to foreign. If you still can't see the implication, let
me spell it out. It is not conspiracy, it is simply free enterprise extending
itself past legal bounds and which has not been checked.
Auto industries lobby for "so called"
safety and pollution standards for only one reason, and that is to regulate
and control the auto industry field through public relations, legal construction
and device standards. This is done so they are the only ones that can compete;
regardless that their cars offer no real safety features that in any way
represent modern technology; that has been readily available for the last
twenty years - i.e. roll cages.
Case in point: An Indy car
can withstand an impact of 250 mph into a brick wall without killing its
occupant in most incidences; and without implementation of an 'so called'
high tech air bag. By mass producing these methods an Indy car would be less
expensive than a two door sedan. Why is there a requirement for air bags?
Why not simply a safe car ?
Companies and Corporations are also selling American property, freedoms
and opportunities out to foreign interests, sorry, America is not for sale.
This should be completely illegal.
Want to lease? OK, but this is renewable every 25 years and revocable if
their country or they themselves are involved in any conflicts with the
US. Also there should be a limit to activity; If they want to have more,
have them become American Citizens.
The answer is obvious; It is because
of this continual encroachment on True freedom by the government, by free
enterprise and corporate strategies, by legal system job security bureaucracies,
by unions strategies and yes, in the free enterprise citizenry benefiting
from government programs and regulations tampering.
It is from the
above type corrupt practices prevalent in this country that we present and
propose these below requirements of all forms of government agencies and
legal institutions within this country to insure true freedom:
• Freeze on all nonessential federal
jobs. Offer early retirement; and as federal offices become unable to serve
have employees shift to essential agencies to fill vacancies if immediately
available; or as programs are reduced to maintain other agencies until
• De-unionize all government agencies.
• All government positions must be
• Eight year maximum service for all
government jobs aside from military. This is all total which would stop
the creation of making government work any type of a profession; and keep
it as a temporary public servant position and a service to the country and
a means of education. No more.
• All state lands owned by federal
government transferred to state and respective County ownership and control.
• Abolish all powers of property condemnation
but for needs required by government during war and returned to the private
property owner immediately after wars end.
• Implement a no names no numbers
tax system or "True Patriot Tax" -Which See. Import
and export taxes to pay for federal government and military and toll or
Entry taxes to pay for state, county and city. These to be clearly divided
systems with no gray areas from where taxes are collected and which segment
of government revenues go to.
Patriot Tax (Entry Tax, No Name Tax,
The Patriot Tax is a very simple tax.
It is simply a collection booth on a major highway in and out of a state,
city and/or county for the collection of tax money.
There are three ways of collecting.
Change, credit card or a bank card not unlike a phone card that you use
until the money is gone and a postal money order card used in the same way.
No names or numbers registered or kept track of.
Taxes are retrieved by the postal
service and delivered to a bank for counting by machine.
This would abolish the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) completely. Replacing it with a branch of the Postal Service
to simply move collected funds to a bank for collection.
Once the amount of tax money which
has been voted on by voters for that years expenditures is satisfied, the
booths close and no more tax money is collected.
All federal taxes are collected by
Import / export taxes only and are never collected from individuals income;
only item value. All percentages of tax governed by vote of the people in
a general election.
• Abolish all property, income, sales,
death, gift, inheritance taxes and any other tax that requires the individual
be known to the government for taxation. (see a free system of taxation
at this site: True Patriot Tax).
the True Patriot Tax (which see site)
• Monopoly laws governed
and implemented state by state and where applicable, county by county.
• Abolish all forms of zoning.
A law and bureaucracy which destroys free enterprise.
• Adherence of all laws to the Declaration
of Independence and Bill of Rights - literally.
• No regulation by any government
agency for any combined purpose shall exceed a single 8"x 5" sheet of paper
on one side, size 12 print, 300 words maximum.
• All written laws must be written
in plain English understandable by any eighth grade education.
• All legal language shall be written
in plain English understandable by any eighth grade educated person.
• All courts shall respect a person
of plain background to represent himself in all courts and simply directed
throughout the process.
• The process of the courts shall
be easily understandable to by anyone with a eighth grade education.
• All mysteries of the present court
systems procedures will be erased providing for ease of understanding and
application by the common man.
• All courts shall have in clear view
above and behind the judges bench the Ten Commandments which outline God's
absolute laws that dictate natures and man's basis for law and order. It
should be noted that without this most basic form of "morality", it would
be ok to murder, rob and act out many other forms of criminal activity. These
laws are what all our laws are based upon.
Declaration of Independence: "When,
in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve
the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume
among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they
should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
• All courts shall have in clear view
the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights for which Freedom
is based upon and was won. Further "the Grievances" that define tyranny in
government numbered and outlined to indicate what freedom fought against
and what freedom is not. Beside each Grievance define the opposite meaning
as the Certain Inalienable Right each Grievance represents and is. It shall
also be printed in every voters pamplet.
• All courts shall have in clear view
the American flag with the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights
sewn into them so that there is no question, and will never be any question,
as to the flags symbolic meaning and freedoms true representation.
• It should be noted that the Declaration
of Independence is the document and the meanings by which freedom was fought,
and by which people died for, not the Constitution. That the Constitution
would never have been ratified without the Bill of Rights which the Declaration
of Independence fist described as "Among these are..." in describing further
"life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" when defining inalienable
rights; Further, that the Declaration of Independence even governs over the
Constitution by presenting each and every Americans first "Right and Duty"
in concern of "any government", federal or other, that resides with
a free people.
• All United States military forces
must recite their protection of the meanings set forth in the Declaration
of Independence and Bill of Rights as first written; then the free people
of the United States who protect these rights; and only then, the Constitution;
so that there can be no doubt of the bases for which we fight. And that
is Certain Inalienable Rights which are defined in the Declaration of Independence,
its Grievances that define Tyranny in government, The opposite of which
are 40 Certain Inalienable Rights of True Freedom and of a Truely Free People
• It should be noted that freedom
never changes. Those who wish to destroy freedom, however, will continue
to try to interpret it. The Constitution itself has fallen by some extent
because of devious interpretation; and has begun to confuse those who live
in it, protect and die for it. Therefor it's definition needs the clarity
presented by the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights that neither
falter, nor waver, nor need interpretation.
