After decades of muddled thinking, we finally have a president who understands that the United States is Republic: 50 co-equal states which have the responsibility for the day-to-day business of American life and the welfare of their citizens. No! President Trump isn’t perfect by a long shot, but he’s the best chance we’ve had for decades to rid the Federal Government of a whole lot of freedom-choking redundancy and useless bureaucracy.
Although it’s hardly a consensus opinion, I firmly believe that the Federal Government’s most important job is to keep the United States and all American citizens safe from foreign interference and intervention. There are other important functions, of course, enumerated in the Constitution, but, like the nearly forgotten 10th Amendment says: “all prerogatives not explicitly given to the Federal Government, nor prohibited of the states, are reserved to the states or to the people (i.e. Individual Americans).
Utilize the Free Market
Take health care! Right now the Federal government is spending millions of hours and dollars working out a health care plan for the entire country. While that is going on, enterprising doctors and hospitals around the country are creating free market healthcare systems that are actually working and serving citizens. Wouldn’t it be great if we could get these two powerful forces, the free market and the Federal bureaucracy to work together.
As I see it, that is exactly what President Trump intends to do but to do it, he has to fight the forces of anal-retentive Conservatives; Liberals who refuse to see the error of their ways and the damage those ‘ways’ have done to the United States (especially over the last 8 years); and entrenched bureaucrats who are more worried about being re-elected next time around than they are about the condition of America or Americans.
It’s one hell of a tough ‘row to hoe’ but he seems to be getting it done.
We all need to help in any way we can!
