Balancing the budget while saving the economy

The federal government is known for screwing things up. Historical evidence points to the government as the cause of every economic downturn in the history of the US. This same evidence indicates that government intervention extended these downturns causing greater damage to the economy that just leaving the system alone.

The first move to fix the economic woes of the US is for the government to sit down, shut up, and let the people do their thing. We don't need a continuously expanding pattern of spending. We need responsibility. We need morality.

Next the government can repair the damage by eliminating all spending programs that are not authorized by the Constitution. This actually is quite simple to accomplish. If the program is not to pay the debts, and to provide for the common defence and general welfare of the united states, then it is not constitutional. Note that paying the debts, providing for the individual defence, and the general welfare of a single state or or individuals is not covered. The expenses must be for the body-politic, the political entity, the united states. A proper understanding of these restraints on spending would provide benefits to the country unheard of. If the government were to spend only what it is constitutionally allowed to spend, taxation rates would plummet and the people and the business of the US would be able to manage for themselves. With more money in the hands of those who produce wealth, spending would increase as would charity.

The entire system would benefit just by having the government obey the rules We the People wrote to control them.

Is this a dream? Probably. Should it occur? Absolutely.

Honor

Short and simple.

Without Honor,

You have NOTHING.

You are NOTHING.

You need not wealth, status, riches.

But you need Honor. We currently have an honorless society.

If you are honorable, you don't need to tell anyone.

If you are honorable, you are not offended by my rant.

If you are not honorable, may you pay the price.


Dominus providebit!

We still got no President

As everyone knows, the first inaugural oath was beesed up by Justice Roberts which led to a fumbling by Barack Obama. So on Tuesday the 21st, Obama retook the oath to remove any question of his being "sworn" in. HOWEVER, Obama took the wrong oath. And all the Presidents back to at least FDR took the wrong oath.

Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 8 states the oath as: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." This is the complete and unalterable oath that every President must take. For at least 70 years, the name of the President has been inserted into the oath which makes the oath not correct as per the Constitution. Is this knitpicking? Of course, but honor dictates that there is only one way only one oath and any alteration of that oath, is not Constitutional. If the oath is incorrect then the person tkaing the oath has not met the obligations of the oath and has not met the requirements of the office.
