We can become a nation that values life, liberty, and property (pursuit of happiness) and values each individual citizen.
In order to do this, we will have to take some radical actions such as:
We will have to become a nation that operates under the concept of “rule of law.” That means that the law is applied per each individual. We ignore any reference to sex, race, religion, political beliefs, or anything but charge and whether or not it violates the law. This will take a herculean effort in that any and all laws that refer to things such as sex, race, religion, political beliefs, or anything other than that the law will be as applied to individuals and not to groups will have to be rewritten. Prior court precedence referring to anything other than application of law to individuals will have to be ignored. We all, as citizens, will have to view each other as individuals. This will be much easier to accomplish when the law does not require us to make distinctions.
We will have to become a nation with a limited government. The federal government will only be involved in those areas where the Constitution gives them specific powers. This will mean that departments such as Education, Health and Human Services, BLM, EPA, and so many others will have to be abandoned. This will diminish the presence of government and number of government personnel by at least 50% I would think. The states and local governments would become involved, but since they are not receiving block grants or other federal funding, they would be legislating based on the demands of the citizens of the respective state. If states wanted to legislate in the manner of New York, California, Washington, Oregon, Illinois, Connecticut, so be it. If you did not like it, you could move to other states or become involved in state affairs and work to elect people with different ideas. The right to vote would be encouraged and protected. A concerted effort would have to be made to be sure that only legal citizens could vote and could only vote once.
We would have to become a nation with a divided government. By limiting the federal government from usurping the role of the states, we would automatically restore our divided government in that power is to be divided between individuals, states, and the federal government. We would also have to restore the designated duties of the different branches of government. The legislative branch would be required to assume the power and responsibility it was given, and that is to legislate. Laws that do not legislate but are passed as a concept and then designate the executive branch to complete with regulations would have to be refused as not legitimate legislation. All laws would have to be complete before being passed to the executive branch for a signature or veto. The executive and judicial branches would have to refuse to legislate and throw it back to the legislative branch, as distasteful as that is to those in congress.
The people must again assume the role of being the sovereign. This means several things. We the people would be responsible for our own decisions, including the consequences of those decisions. We could not be excused by blaming negative consequences on society nor could we be punished or demonized by government for the positive aspects of our choices. We would have to become interested, involved, and informed citizens once again. Public employee unions of any kind would have to be eliminated. This would place public service employees on a level playing field with private citizen employees and prevent political factions from taking funds from other citizens to be used to promote policies that indoctrinate and influence. School choices such as Charter schools, private schools, and home schooling would be available to all without any form of government or union interference.
You might recognize these suggestions as not being suggestions that I made, but simply taking the ideas from our founders as to how they established our Republic and believed we sould continue to operate. Of course, in 1787 when our Constitution was drafted, we did not have political parties. We did have political factions. Those factions had different ideas, but they had a common goal and that goal was that liberty and freedom be preserved for all with all citizens having the freedom to live their own lives and have their own thoughts. Today, we have political parties, and one of those parties has as its goal to eliminate freedom and liberty and have government assume the role sovereign telling each individual how they are to live their lives and what thoughts they can have.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
