Statement from the Candidate
In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

What we need now is Constitutional "Extermism"
To repeat, the Ryan budget for 2012 is a great place to start, but it's too specific and exacting in its proposals and a bit too pointy-headed to grasp, and there are other enormous constitutional issues that Ryan didn't address which will not only save hundreds of billions of dollars but would also eliminate the liberal mischief and threats to our prosperity and liberty that reside in the executive branch of government, especially the EPA.
The major source of mischief and regulations that negatively impact our lives and prosperity is the EPA, which is inventing emergencies in order to minutely regulate and control our lives and business. We must abolish this bunch of rogues and save in excess of $9 billion each year.
The Department of Education has destroyed education in the U.S. and is a shill for the far left teachers' unions, and the only way we will improve education is to abolish this corrupt department, eliminate the political influence it represents in the education of our children and return control to local school boards, and save $77 billion each year.
The Departments of Energy and Interior have caused oil and gas to become more scarce and more expensive and have shut down drilling in this nation at the cost of thousands of jobs and a reduction of our competitive ability and our security. We must abolish these departments to save our nation, and save $41 billion each year as a result.
The Department of Commerce costs $6 billion each year and restricts and controls commerce nearly to death, so this leftist, statist organization must be abolished.
The IRS costs us $13 billion each year, on top of the cost of tax preparation and the invisible hand-in-the-pocket of payroll deduction. The FAIR tax would save our citizens money and would assure that all illegals and visitors to America were paying taxes that they avoid under the current IRS income tax system.
