A Quick and Simple Plan For Politicians to UNFUCK AMERICA

 

So what Jefferson was saying was,
"Hey! You know, we left this England place because it was bogus.
So if we don't get some cool rules ourselves, pronto,
we'll just be bogus too." 

 -Jeff Spicoli, Fast Times at Ridgemont High

 

I was recently asked by a person in the UK government to list the steps I would like to see the US government take in order to actually Make America Great Again.

Here are my first ten actions, in no particular order, with a little bit of color commentary:

 

1) Re-institute The Glass-Steagall Act ,and require FASB to re-institute Mark-To-Market

Or the next bailouts are far less likely to be as peaceful as the last bailouts.

2) Require an independent and public audit of all of the Federal Reserve Banks, every year

I know you snuck the 99 year renewel by us, but never in more than 100 years is just a bit too long between audits.  

3) Pass and actually enforce a Balanced Budget Amendment

Stop enslaving us, our children, and grandchildren with more debt just to buy yourselves votes and provide passive income for the very wealthy.

4) Pass a Flat Tax Amendment, not to exceed 10%, no deductions, with an equivalent rate for income and capital gains

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

5) Enforce The War Powers Act and repeal The Patriot Act

Stop it with the boogey man scare tactics.

6) Close all 800 or so overseas military bases and cancel all foreign aid

Make America great again, not Turkistan, not Israel, not Afghanistan, not Poland, not the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, but America.

7) Pass a law that only people eligible to vote for a candidate may contribute to that candidate

So, it is bad for Russia to influence our elections, but ok for Mexico, Israel, and Saudi Arabia?  Stop the hypocrisy.

8) Pass a law that limits US Senators and Congressmen to two terms

Let us have more democracy and less oligarchy.

9) Protect privacy; enforce The 4th Amendment; and prosecute government employees when they spy and collect data on American citizens 

Pardon Ed Snowden!

10) Move all spent nuclear fuel to Yucca Mountain

Fuck Harry Reid!

I know, naive, right?  Well, I fear that if we stop dreaming, then we lose hope.  I am not ready to lose hope.  I love the USA too much.

 

I wish we could hear our so-called elected representatives argue against these ten simple items, but I realize that it will probably never happen.

Who are they really working for?

14.  Read, Animal Farm, by George Orwell.
15.  Research your two senators and one congressman at www.opensecrets.org Make a list of their 10 biggest donors, and send the list to your "representative" in an email or letter.

Please share what you see as the pros and cons of each step, or suggestions for other steps, in the comments below.

Peace, prosperity, and liberty,

It may sound conspiratorial but Zero point energy aka "energy from the vacuum" declassification should be a top priority.I've had to wade through alot of misinformation to find the truth.http://www.cheniere.orghttps://youtu.be/eNU3MLqyzPkBtw "free energy" is just a transformation of energy. Like a hydro dam, all the energy is "free". We just have to pay to harness it in a useful way.Electrical engineering hasn't changed any of its fundamental assumptions to reflect all that we've learned since the 1880's. Quantum mechanics has most of it worked out and fully supports the ability to harness quantum zero point fluctuations. And yes Tesla had some of it figured out but got on JP Morgans bad side.

I disagree with point 2.  Don't just audit the Fed.  End it.  I also disagree with 4.  Repeal the 16th Amendment all together.  That will make point 6 a necessity.  I would take point 7 further:  You have to show a working knowledge of how our government is SUPPOSED to work before you can vote.  No more low information voters.  I would also add another point that all laws should have an automatic sunset clause.  The piling up of laws is synonomous with mission creep.  Politicians have to "do something" in order to garner short term political gain.  With an automatic sunset clause, and a requirement that the law be read aloud in front of a quorum, that would be giving politicians something to do.

The Constitution is as big a joke as the Republic, there is no saving the country and HH is really letting his statist colors fly.The empire must be dissolved.  This would mean freeing not only Guam and Puerto Rico, but Alaska and Hawaii as well.  But that is really just the start.  The federal government has no right possessing upto 90% of the land in the western states, and they will never give it up, so the west has to split off into at least one seperate country.  There is no other way.So there is no real hope outside of the Norks nuking Washington DC.

ZPE It does not work, never did. If it worked there would be people building ZPE generators in their garages.

"Tesla had some of it figured out but got on JP Morgans bad side."

The Current electrical grid was invented by Tesla. Telsa wireless power transmission using Tesla coils was never practical. It wasn't an energy source, just a means to transport energy wirlessly, but it was never very efficient and never would be very efficient.

Not as such, but there is a lot that has yet to be discovered about vacuums. Some interesting science implicating matter creation has already been conducted. It is worth exploring and thinking about in new ways. That is why I upvoted him.

They're all over YouTube. But over half or more are dis-info. It can be difficult to measure with typical instruments. It acts like a completely different type of energy (very nonlinear) until it's converted chemically (battery/capacitor) Tesla called it radiant energy. Others have called it negative energy.The threshold when the feds get involved is when it's big enough to power a house and/or if it's scalable or intended to be sold. Energy falls under "national security" just like food and everything else. Think about the time frame when Tesla discovered those things. 1900 +-15yrs. He lived all the way up to the 1940's. His tesla coils could be used to exploit quantum phenomenon and go over unity. But no-one at that time could explain the phenomenon well enough to refine it. This is all I've came across on over unity Tesla coils. And he doesn't explain things as well as the links in my original post.https://www.youtube.com/user/zeropointinstituteIf you torrent, the first 18 parts of the "Energy from the vacuum" science series are available free. There's 36 parts total now I think.

I learned about it in quantum chemistry class. It's a theoretical number that arises from assuming a particular shape to the distance-energy curve between particles.

However, since it involves subatomic particles standing perfectly still relative to each other, instead of engaging in their usual vibrational patterns, it is debated whether this is actually possible, and anyhow it hasn't been observed.

Science is full of cases where a system is described by an equation, but the equation points to mathematically valid states that have no physical validity. An example would be modeling a thrown baseball, but the model implies that the ball could land both in front of you and behind you (parabola). Or more famously, the equations for a black hole have a mathematical "white hole," which if existing would make the black hole into a wormhole, but we have yet to observe white holes in our universe, so they might not exist.

You left out the dick pics. Seriously though, nothing changes until there are trials and hangings. It's all unicorn shit skittles and rainbows till then.

Perhaps this 'person in the UK government' should be more concerned about fixing his/her own steeming-hot-mess of a nation, and not worry so much about ours, but everyone is entitled to hold their own opinions.  A good thought-provoking list, nonetheless.

Don't know anyone in the British government. Most of the Brits I know would ask whether it was ever all that great to start with and point out that most of what 'America' is comes from its own propaganda and the ignoring of inconvenient historical facts.America Has Been At War 93% of the Time – 222 Out of 239 Years – Since 1776 - is that what makes America 'Great'

This list would not make the United States of America great again; it is a glaring example of why it wouldn't.Until the People recognize that their natural responsibilities require they govern themselves rather than lazily expect it of someone else, then, there will always be unjust, cruel, and non-representing governance. Any and all forms of taxation are unjust, cruel, and non-representative.

End the Fed. Seize its $4 trillion in assets to reduce the debt; it was obtained by printing our money. The Fed reported $9 trillion unaccounted for. The Fed is a giant moral hazard, wherein Janet would never ever report any Fed employee skimming/selling-inside info to protect the Fed. Seizing the Fed's books would allow recovery of some of that missing $9 trillion, which could further reduce the debt.

Presently, the Treasury issues debt, while the Fed buys that debt with our printed money and we pay interest to the Fed. The Treasury can print money directly and not create any more debt. We can vote the Treasury vermin out, but the Fed is forever.

Print to pay off all debts and to get the economy going post debt money. Put together a decent starting budget and hard cap increases to say 3% a year. Get international cooperation and calculate currency exchanges based on a mathematical formula rather than trading.

If you actually want the US to continue, it will have to decentralize. Literally the blues will go blue state the reds will go red states. If you expect that to have a chance with a common currency, there can be no government debt, nor can it be used as collateral. Oddly, the original conspiracy to have banks bailing out banks and not buying US papaer has merit. The trouble HH that your scenario has the same problem  that mine has, it does not change the outstanding debt .

9/10 educated Americans have equally intelligent solutions yet the debauchery continues uncontested.  Without a malitia, and the ability to organize in peace as per our constitution, the tyranny rolls on. "Constitution Classes" should provide a forum for peaceful change and a solution to tyranny.  Start one in your town today.  If 1000's popped up on, oh, let's Say Nov 4 for example, the the class leaders could represent each group and could then organize and become one voice.  You have a little over 3 months, folks.  Let's get it started.

This fucker ain't got a clue.  Just listen to Ron Paul for the real way out.  End the Fed.  No foreign intervention.  Can the MIC.  Get the fuck out of people's business, here and abroad.  BINGO!  Peace AND Prosperity.  Now, wuddant simple?

I agree with most.  Exceptions:1. A flat tax of 10% kills the little guy, while billionaires laugh.A progressive tax is fair.2. The budget does not need to be balanced. The deficit does not matter.It's a phony digital value represented by phony digital money.  The governmentcan always repudiate the debt or pull a Rentenmark trick.3. Animal Farm is a cute story about the Trotsky-Stalin fight. Not worth a read.4. Nuclear power is a ticking time bomb that has already poisoned the Earth.

  "2. The budget does not need to be balanced. The deficit does not matter."You are a complete fucking idiot.  The Bank Bailouts ALONE cost of 26 TRILLION DOLLARS since 2008 you MORON.If we just had that money back, let alone the 2.6 TRILLION that rummy mentioned on Sept 10th....we'd be in a lot better shape.  Christ you're stupid, you suck at trolling and you're an even bigger idiot when you actually try to contribute something.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgI914jTzBACatherine Austin Fitts – We Need Our $40 Trillion In Stolen Cash Back

As long as no one has the ability to "control P" an account full of fiat with which to "invest."  That's a deal-breaker every time.

I can guarantee that the federal government will NEVER reform itself peacefully.That is why the Founding fathers put a powerful tool in the Constitution called Article V.  It allows the state legislatures to call a Convention of States to which they will send delegates to debate and propose amendments to the legislatures to reign in, or even abolish the three branches of federal government.  The delegates have no power to change the Constitution, only to propose amendments.  After 3/4 of state legislatures ratify an amendment, it becomes a new law of the land.  And Congress, the Prez and Supreme Court have absolutely no say in the outcome.It's our last chance before breaking out the molotovs and evil black rifles.
