A Vision to Restore America
America is in a crisis caused by the borrow-and-spend, tax-and-regulate policies of President Obama and Senator Casey. The Obama-Casey Agenda has led to the loss of millions of jobs and caused the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression.
That is why I feel compelled to go to Washington to help stop the Obama-Casey Agenda in its tracks – from their czars, to their job-destroying EPA to ObamaCare – and return our country to the Constitution and the principles our our Founding Fathers – freedom, liberty, independence, self-reliance and personal responsibility. This is my Free America Agenda.
The Free America Agenda
Free America from the burden of our massive annual budget deficits and National Debt by passing a Balanced Budget Amendment. The uncontrolled borrowing and spending has ground our economy to a halt and brought us to the edge of ruin. We must cut significant amounts of government spending now, abolish entire federal departments and balance our budget this year and every year. A Balanced Budget Amendment will save us from bankruptcy, restart the economy and result in a smaller and more limited government.
Free America from the stranglehold our career politicians have over our government by passing a Term Limit Amendment. Too often our career politicians do what is in the best interest of the special interest groups who get and keep them elected, instead of doing what is right for our country. The result is a massive federal government that controls every aspect of our lives and businesses and takes our freedoms and liberties from us. A return to government of and by the people, instead of government by a protected political class, will restore the ideals of our Founding Fathers — self-government by a free people.
Free American taxpayers and small businesses from the oppression of the federal government by repealing the 16th Amendment, abolishing the Internal Revenue Code and the I.R.S. and eliminating job-crushing regulations. By freeing Americans from the federal income tax, allowing us to keep the fruits of our own labor and by eliminating these job-crushing regulations, we will unleash the entrepreneurial spirit and energy of the American people and will lift our economy up, put millions of Americans back to work and bring prosperity to all.
Free America from our dependence on foreign energy and once again make America not only energy independent but the leading energy producer in the world by developing here and now coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear energy. The Marcellus Shale natural gas deposit is a great gift to the people of Pennsylvania. The Marcellus Shale is adding billions of dollars to our economy and tens of thousands of good paying jobs. We must stop Senator Casey’s attack on the Marcellus Shale and allow Pennsylvania to resume its proper place as the leading energy producing, mining, manufacturing and industrial state in the country, if not the world.
Free America from the harmful policies of the Federal Reserve by stopping it from manipulating interest rates, printing money out of thin air and trying to plan and control our economy. We must return to a sound money monetary policy and put the Federal Reserve on the path to extinction. Returning to sound money and private banking, will restore freedom to our “free” enterprise system, stop the malinvestment and monetary “bubbles,” foster real economic growth and job creation and stop the scourge of inflation.
Free America from this self-imposed moral duty to “Police the World” or “Make the World Safe for Democracy” or establish a “New World Order” that at the end of the day means more American blood spilt and American treasure spent fighting other people’s wars. We must have the most powerful military on Earth, but we must use it only to defend the national security interests of the American people. We must stop nation building around the world, stop intervening in the internal politics of foreign countries, end all foreign aid and bring our troops home. We must return to the foreign policy of our Founding Fathers — we are a Republic, not an Empire.
