The US Federal Government MUST abide by the following, and OPERATE ONLY WITHIN its limitations on power and authority as decreed by the United States Constitution.
- The federal government exists to preserve and benefit the life, liberty and property of its citizens, not to rule over them. The federal government’s powers are limited to those enumerated in the Constitution. Powers assumed over the decades which exceed those enumerated in the Constitution shall be revoked, and all agencies, departments, laws, regulations, & policies established with those assumed (and thus illegitimate) powers shall immediately (within 3 months) be abolished, repealed or terminated.
- The 2nd amendment means what it says. Every regulation and restriction is an infringement, and as such those currently in place must be abolished.* This includes the NFA, the GCA, the Hughes Amendment, and any statute that portends to police or regulate the ownership of firearms, knives, swords, etc. All the horrible implements of war are the birthright of every American citizen.
- Judges must interpret and apply our laws and the Constitution based on their original meaning when written, not upon judges’ personal and political predispositions.
- Individuals and families—not government—make the best decisions regarding their and their children’s health, education, jobs, and welfare. The family is the essential foundation of civil society, and traditional marriage serves as the cornerstone of the family.
- Congress members shall read every bill into the record, and debate it prior to voting. Each bill shall be limited to a single subject and 100 pages. Omnibus bills are prohibited. Voting for or against a bill a member did not read is henceforth a hanging offense.
- The federal deficit and debt must not place unreasonable financial burdens on future generations, and to guarantee this, the budget must be balanced annually. Agencies and departments not authorized by the Constitution must be abolished within 3 months.
- Tax policies must raise only the minimum revenue necessary to fund constitutionally enumerated functions of government, and taxes are only to be collected as a 15% corporate profit tax and a flat national sales tax on retail goods. The greater the company profit, the larger the tax. The more you buy, the more taxes you contribute. There is no tax on individual earnings.
- America’s economy and the prosperity of individual citizens are best served by a system of free enterprise, with special emphasis on economic freedom, private property rights, and the rule of law. Regulations must not breach constitutional principles of limited government and the separation of powers. The federal register is already tens of thousands of pages too many, therefore, every new regulation requires the elimination of 25 current regulations.
- America is a welcoming nation—one that promotes patriotic assimilation and is governed by laws that are fair, humane, and enforced to protect and benefit its citizens. Those who wish to immigrate must apply for acceptance. All who invade or attempt to illegally enter the United States disrespect our laws by doing so, and shall be immediately removed and forever barred from returning.
- Justice requires an efficient, fair, and effective criminal justice system—one that gives defendants adequate due process and requires an appropriate degree of criminal intent to merit punishment. The rule of law must be applied to all, equally. Those connected to government must be, if anything, more severely investigated.
- International agreements and international organizations shall not infringe on American’s constitutional rights, nor should they diminish America’s sovereignty.
- The best way to ensure peace is through a strong national defense. The department of defense will be audited every five years.
* While debating the NFA, records of testimony on the House and Senate floor clearly demonstrate that the Congress and Attorney General in the 1930’s fully understood the restrictions and limits of their power, as defined in the Constitution: “Under the Constitution, the United States has no jurisdiction to legislate in a police sense with respect to firearms.”
