The state of affairs for the United States as a whole looks pretty grim. Whether it’s the 17 trillion dollar debt, or the fact that nearly a third of the population is on some form of government assistance , it’s pretty easy to see that America is in trouble. But, what can we do to fix this? After all, if it were easy, it’d already be fixed. The truth is, it won’t be easy and won’t be embraced by politicians and other elected officials. Below I will outline a few steps I think would help to return America to the great power we once were.
Implement Term Limits
The halls of Congress are filled with people who have forgotten what it’s like to live in the real world. The problem with allowing politicians to stay in office indefinitely is that it creates corruption. The longer a person wields power, the more opportunities they have to abuse that power. Is it any wonder why nearly half of all Congressman are millionaires, yet the salary is 180,000 per year. We need fresh blood in Congress, people who aren’t locked down by special interests and party line ideology.
Pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
For too long, our government has been able to run up wild debts that we have no hope of ever paying back. On top of this, the national budget remains in deficit with no signs of slowing up. In the past 6 years, we’ve added nearly 10 trillion dollars to the national debt, and what do we have to show for it? I can’t see anything! Adding a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution would ensure that our leaders only spend what they have.
Dismantle the National Security State
According to a recent study by Excel College Online, More and more the U.S. government chooses to violate the rights of it’s citizens on the grounds that it’s necessary to keep us safe. Between the NSA collecting the phone data and emails of everyone and the President executing U.S. citizens without due process of law, our country has sacrificed too much liberty for the illusion of safety. Benjamin Franklin said it best, “Those who sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.” We all have inalienable rights, and its about time we stand up for them. The government has no business snooping in my communications, or yours! There is more information available at Excel High School, an accredited homeschooling program.
These are just 3 of many things that need done to help get our country back on the right track. Check back frequently as I go over some other things we can do to set things right. You can also by elevator shoes at 7shoes.
