I generally don't like to have the terms "manifesto" and "conservative" in the same sentence, but Mark Levin has put them together and this is EXCELLENT! Here it is:
I would add that if you really want people to understand the taxes they pay AND hold their elected representatives accountable, you would have income tax paid once a year, and it would be the same day as Election Day.
Let's be honest - the environmental movement is the last refuge of the socialists that tried to destroy the country during the Vietnam War. These groups have an agenda that would take us back to the Stone Age. There is room in the environmental agenda for a conservative view that would focus on preservation and sustainability...the proper maintenance of God's creation...and it should be pursued.
No argument here.
Great suggestions here. Especially the reduction in the workforce. I would add that we should institute performance incentive pay for Federal employees.
Our education system has become a joke - it is at best a semi-effective daycare and at worst an indoctrination camp. Take the shackles off and let the states compete!
Exactly. I would only add that we should seek to encourage immigration to the United States by trades and skills that we need.
Here's a craaaaazy idea: let's fix what is already broke - Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid - FIRST, before we start a whole new system of flushing money down the drain.
Doing! Might want to add a clause that spells out everyone we've apologized to and end the worldwide mea culpa tours. We have to act like grown ups in the world.
John Adams spoke often about the need for a moral society founded in faith. Those without true faith will follow false prophets - how do you spell "Obama?" The republic depends on this.
This noble document, our Constitution, is under full frontal assault. As I pen this, reports are coming over the wire about a bill working its way through the Senate that would give the President power to control the Internet...let's get back to the instruction manual now!
Levin has done an excellent job pulling this together. We should make this a rallying cry.
