ALL Government Policies & Candidates Need Reform Our government and society is totally broken. The Public Policies advocated by BOTH Parties, AND the Thirds for that matter, conspicuously do not serve the Individual, the Nation, or Humanity very well. We need to take a fresh and complete look at every single law and public policy that is in place as to whether such laws and public policies really serve our informed interests as individuals and as a nation. EVERYTHING needs to be on the table, including the Constitution, all of its Amendments, and every past decision of the Federal Courts since our Founding. Then when we look at EVERYTHING from scratch, nothing can be off the table, absolutely nothing. We must look at all the salaries, pensions and benefits handed out by government at every level, and those of non-profits, and even private companies. Nothing must escape scrutiny if we are to have real reform. We must look at Social Security and Unions, Medicare and Medicaid, Unemployment Compensation and Workers Compensation, the so-called "Practice" of Law and the "Practice" of Medicine, Debt, Credit and its collection, Schools, Churches and their tax exemptions, Government owned and operated Schools, the Military, the Police, and Prisons. In short, every single institution must be scrutinized as to in what way it is serving the nation and the individual, and what ways it is not, and the cost benefits in each instance. There is a general consensus that the Nation as of now is a bloated pig, overfed, and underworked. The best things that need doing, it is not doing, and the worst things those it is doing. Now, all these ideas of reform will be controversial, (reform always is) because we, like past nations, have become totally enslaved to every special interest, and interest, imaginable. These "Interests" have crowded out totally, the National Interest, and the Interest of the Individual. We even have nit-wit professors teaching students things like that the sum of all Special Interests equals the National Interest and thereby meets the needs of the Individual. Fact is, they absolutely do not. Every Special Interest, or Interest by its very nature is contrary to the National Interest, and contrary to the Interest of the Individual. This needs to be clearly recognized from the start. No matter how painful this process is, it must be done or the Republic, and the dream it represents, is dead. Just as an old house must be remodeled from time to time, or it will fall down, so societies must be remodeled from time to time or they collapse. Presently not one single candidate in this country advocates such an examination and audit of our society, but here and there there are encouraging signs that the idea is not dead. There are examples of reform, but they are very, very few indeed. We elect people who promise "change" all the time, but they never change anything, and when they do, it is something that is worse than the problem it was designed to solve. We can't go on this way. In a Republic, we the people can produce non-violent change, but it must work to actually produce that change or the nation will descend into violence to try to solve its problems. This is the problem and these are the choices.
