If we are going to discuss politics, then I think it's important to discuss policy goals. What do you want to accomplish politically and how do you intend to do so? Anyone is free to post, but my one request is, if you want to respond to what others say, post your own goals first. That way we all have a good idea where each other is coming from. I'll start. I want to empower individuals Cut taxes Cut government spending Eliminate corruption Restore States to their Constitutionally given power. I want to see this done by: Simplifying the tax code Eliminating any non-constitutional departments in the Federal Government. Make those that remain more efficient. Move any Federal regulation that should be at the State level to the States Repeal the 17th amendment Eliminate all "mandatory" spending so that Congress actually has to budget that instead of letting it go on autopilot. Use technology to keep Congressmen in their districts more as well as cut the days they meet during the year. Cut Congressional pay. Im sure I could come up with some other ideas if I thought about it longer. So what about you?
