5. Economy / Growth

Socialism is un-American and always leads to poverty and oppression.

We will stop it. We will shrink the federal government, reduce the government work force by 25% in 5 years, sell government buildings and assets, and get rid of the old, slow, closed, top-down, government-run-everything system we have today.

  • Socialism will be treated as a foreign combatant which aims to destroy our prosperity and freedom.
  • Other than essential core functions, government should not be doing anything that the private sector can do better and cheaper.
  • We will apply the “Do It Better” Test: If American businesses can serve the American people better and cheaper than government, the work goes to them.
  • No government assistance unless you are disabled or aggressively seeking work. If you can work, but refuse to work, you cannot live off of the hard work and sweat of your fellow Americans.
  • We will require “truth in governing.” If government passes a law that does not achieve what it promised, the program will be shut down.
  • We will balance the federal budget. It can be done. States do it all the time.
  • If Congress does not pass a budget, the members of Congress do not get paid. Full stop.
  • Other than disaster relief, the federal government must stop spending money on non-essential state and local projects until the budget is balanced.
  • Eliminate truly non-essential government employee positions, because they are non-essential.
  • Implement the line-item veto. It works in state capitols. It will work in Washington
  • Expedite all federal permit applications to be granted or denied within 30 days.
  • Able bodied Americans under 60, who do not have young children or incapacitated dependents, should work. We need them pulling the wagon and paying taxes, not sitting at home taking money from the government. Currently, far too many Americans who can work are living off of the hard work of others, and have no ‘skin in the game’. Government must never again incentivize people to not work by paying them more to stay home.
  • Prohibit debt ceiling increases absent a declaration of war.

We will grow America’s economy, starve Washington’s economy, and stop Socialism.

Endorse This Plan

Among the things the militant left plan to change or destroy are American history, patriotism, border security, Christianity, the nuclear family, gender, traditional morality, capitalism, fiscal responsibility, opportunity, rugged individualism, the Judeo-Christian ethic, dissent, free speech, color blindness, law enforcement, religious liberty, and private ownership of firearms.

But America’s future can be bright. This is my plan to make it so.

Endorse my plan that shows what we will do when given the chance to govern.
