A group of us decided we were going to list the steps necessary to address some grievances that we (and pretty much most of the people I know) have with decisions that have been implemented in the name of “The People”. Some of the names at the bottom of the letter you might recognize. I did not come up with the idea or write the letter, but I am endorsing it as if I had. At this point I have a reluctant optimism, which is tempered by my understanding of the prevalent, greedy human nature in our government. I also understand that words are not deeds, and President-Elect Trump needs to “Show me” that his bold words are always followed through with honest deeds

An Open Letter to Republicans:
America has been granted a reprieve. You are being loaned one. In the name of whatever you wish, such as ‘Making America Great Again,’ do the following with dispatch:
All immigration for 25 years. After that time, resume at 1950 levels, in accordance with the pre-1965 standards and enact a point system. See also, Australia.
All Executive Orders issued by the Obama, Clinton, and Bush administrations. Both Bushes.
The Patriot Act.
The FISA Court.
The Affordable Care Act. Enable cross-border purchase of insurance, to include internationally.
All subsidies, to include abortion and contraception.
Government licensing, subsidies, and any other interference in marriage, to include tax breaks.
Dual citizenship for elected or appointed officials, lobbyists, and staff members.
All departments except State, Defense & Treasury (exception – BATFE – they need to go). Start with BATFE and Education.
All bureaus except the FBI – for now – we’ll revisit that one in a couple of years. Should you need to pursue terrorists overseas, give it to the CIA and tell them to call Fort Bragg.
All agencies: In the meantime, while that’s being done, disarm all agencies save for the FBI and CIA, and that part of the Treasury Department necessary for the protection of the President.
The National Firearms Act of 1934 and subsequent gun control legislation, to include ending gun free zones.
Abortion. If it’s really about choice, then you have chosen poorly. The grownups will now take over.
The war on drugs.
The war on poverty.
Stop and frisk.
Civil service protection.
All environmental legislation should be replaced with bills specifying CY 2017 as the baseline, all emissions to hold there, with a hard-science peer-reviewed/open source review to be conducted five years after passage as to any outlier emitters/emissions requiring action, along with cost/benefit of same.
Special prosecutor for treason/corruption as far back as statutes of limitation allow. We ended both the Clinton Crime Family and the Bush Crime Dynasty, now you prosecute. Investigate all living presidents and administration lackeys, with specific concentration on the relationship with the Saudis, going back to Prescott Bush. RICO applies here. Commute their sentences, if you must (except for Treason), as needed for “healing” but it is imperative to restore the Rule of Law to America. Do not pardon anyone. This is decidedly not a case of, ‘some pigs are more equal than others.’
Pass the Hearing Protection Act.
Nuclear power generation on DOD property by 2022. We think sooner:
Drill, baby, drill. Then frack.
Re-open all coal burning power generation plants.
Build refineries and enable manufacturing.
NATO members pay treaty obligations, to include back pay. With interest.
Immediate deportation of illegal aliens. This may be accomplished by ending any .gov benefits they are receiving and enforcing existing laws with regard to employers.
Draconian penalties for employers of illegal aliens. Start with Tyson, in Arkansas. That should help your RICO case.
Health savings account limits up to $25k/yr offset versus income– $500k lifetime, self-directed (think 401(k)), with tax-free transfer to next of kin per state estate law.
Don’t steal. Don’t hurt people. It’s not that difficult.
Investigate George Soros as a Nazi war criminal.

With you except on the nuclear power thing.
We need and should have more nuclear power.

I think you misunderstood. The ‘nuclear power thing’ was under the ENABLE area. AND I fully agree with the letters objectives.
Good deal then.

“enforcing existing laws with regard to employers…. Draconian penalties for employers of illegal aliens.”
Dragooning employers into enforcing immigration law? That’s fine, if you don’t mind not having much employment! It’s hard enough, as it is, to run a business in this country, without adding this burden. Employers should employ anyone they please, hire and fire as they please (within the lines drawn by the employment contracts they themselves created). That’s how you get more employment (“If you want more of something, tax it less.”). Deal with immigration in other ways – for example, by handing out less free shit.
The rest of it looks pretty good. However, given past history, I wouldn’t be holding my breath if I were you.
So instead of having employers “enforce” something that is easy for them to figure out, you want the Feds doing the job by visiting.inspecting businesses unannounced? Most who hire illegals know exactly what they are doing, and are trying to circumvent the rules to pad their pocket through manipulation of the “illegal” employee by paying them less. Their is a system in place for immigrants to adhere to. As an employer you follow those guidelines, or get penalized. I guess you’re a fan of “sanctuary cities” too? It’s the same thing just a bigger scale.

Please, restore the republic.
I completely support this though with the nuclear power have alts in line/ready to go.
James Carter,carpenter/,average guy/rock “n”roller/firm believer in personal responsibility and freedom,reside Boston area when working,N.H. is the homeland.
As has been stated here and many other good sites(I am a site slut)this kind of actions begins locally.I believe we will all have to make some sacrifices beyond time to get the country on a good track but worth it.
So its end “The National Firearms Act of 1934” which would make suppressors in the law just the same as lawn mower silencer i.e. nothing. Then its pass “The Hearing Protection Act” which would turn these “lawn mower parts” into a firearm how does that help?
Considering the fact that getting all of the things listed as “End” is possible but not probable, enacting the HPA is a way to at least lessen the regulatory BS for the average American.

Well thought out letter, definitely support it
Former CPT, OMR HHD (ret)
I concur with all the points in the letter. This would let freedom ring.
USAF 494th Bomb Wing
Not a bad start…..
I would add :
1) Term limits. 4 years across the board.
2) Establish a Congressional office to establish cost/benefit analysis of ALL Federal regulations. Dispose of those that don’t stand up to scrutiny. In time we can apply the same to proposed legislation, which brings up..
3) All passed laws have to be proven, within a reasonable amount of time, say 2 years, to have a positive effect or they’re destined for the dustbin.
So let it be written, so let it be done.

Im for it Jason .. i could add another half dozen things but we gota start somewhere !!
Agree with the whole thing. This should be posted on the Whitehouse petition site on January 20th and word passed to all our fellow citizens to sign.
Agreed ! ! !
Definitely a good start. I am with this.
Idaho Falls, ID
also….implement thorium based nuclear power
Abolish the 17th amendment, this will force each party to work at the state level by making them have the state ledigislative and governorships also under their controls. Have trump pardon several members that were convicted of sharing classified info with others,
There is marine officer that sent classified info via social media to his troops in harms way.. General David Petraeus is another. One more would be the spec ops MSG that struck a Afghan politician because he was raping you boy and Carter kicked him out of the army.
Petraeus did what he did for ego and a piece of ass. There was nothing noble about it.
I while copy this and on Jan.21 send said copy to the new administration,can’t hurt.I suppose a organized across sites e-mail campaign with many sending in might get the message/ideas at least a glance,need to try.
Please post up any ideas and links, if that’s OK with JC, you may have. We’re looking for widest dissemination. Please feel free to forward to all your friends and enemies.
Fine by me
Reblogged this on The Defensive Training Group.
I would if I thought it would do a damn bit of good…But like all the other petitions I’ve signed begging the Tyrants to relinquish power over someone or something this one will also have no effect unless it benefits the Tyrants in some way…
Maybe you’re right. We’ll see
I hope I am wrong Brother…Until we make them irrelevant or shoot them all we are doing is chasing our tails…
ideas I readily endorse. Small govt, cheap energy and an elimination of subversive forces in our country. Want to live here assimilate!
Term limits. 2 terms max, dog catcher to POTUS. No pension, VA medical care while in office nothing after.
Those are good ones Top.

You forgot :
Defund and evict the U.N.
I would suggest no firearms for the FBI, either. They need to make an arrest, they can involve the local sheriff if any firepower is needed.
