Solutions

Richard J. Medicus

Congressman Bradley,

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend your “Solutions” townhall meetings. Regardless and maybe better suited of what you are asking; I am providing a list of my suggestions for solutions to our economic problems. These suggestions will necessarily provide solutions to other problems that our nation faces.

1. At the top of my list of problems that could provide economic relief is Immigration.

To stem and then reverse the flow of immigrants, legal and illegal, would provide a huge economic relief to this country. Billions of dollars are spent to house, feed, educate and provide medical assistance to nearly 15 million illegal, and therefore, criminal aliens. This, while nearly 100 million American citizens are unemployed or underemployed is an unconcionable lack of respect for Americas citizens. As evidenced by the internment of Japanese and Americans of Japanese descent collecting and deporting illegals is clearly within the realm of possibilty. A huge number would self deport.

An additional 25 million immigrants from Asia, Africa, Europe, the middle east, South America and Central America are all destroying the Constitutional Republic in which we live. These immigrants are not assimilating into America. They are actively working to overthrow and replace our way of life with their third world belief systems.

Mexicans have openly called for the “Reconquista” of the Southwest U.S. MS13 and other Mexican gangs are being treated like fish. That is to say “catch and release”. These Mexican gangs, with regularity, attack, rape, murder and kidnap for slavery American citizens. Numerous stories have been reported of previously incarcerated Mexicans being released only to murder again and again. I have seen reports that nearly 30% of prisoners incarcerated in U.S. prisons are of Mexican or Hispanic descent. The cost for their incarceration runs well into the millions of dollars. Billions of dollars are sent to Mexico by immigrants. Stop it or put a tax on money sent to Mexico from America.

The U.S. government is working against the American citizen by actively importing and subsidizing immigrants from the middle east, Africa and other locations. These immigrants openly strive to replace the American system of justice with Sharia, the moslem system of laws. Moslems have declared time and again their desire to destroy the American way of life. Moslems openly refuse to provide services for which they do not believe while American businesses are forced to provide those same services against their expressed beliefs. At every turn the moslems demand that we accomodate them. They do not want to become U.S. citizens. They want the U.S. to become the same third world country from which they originated.

By forcing immigrants of all stripes to return to the worlds from which they came the U.S. would save billions of dollars in a very short time.

2. The bloat of the U.S. government is second on my list. Like immigration the expense of our bloated government at all levels wastes 100’s of billions of dollars every year.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the latest employment figures there are currently nearly 22 million federal government employees. The quickest way to save nearly 1.5 billion dollars in salaries, wages and pensions every year would be to fire 20 million of them. Additionally, every employee of the federal government or contractor or subcontractor of the federal government is a net drain of American tax dollars. To accomplish this feat the House of Representatives would have to shut down nearly every federal department, federal agency and organization.

According to www.usa.gov/federal-agencies there are over 400 federal departments, bureaus, agencies, administrations, boards, commissions and schools. Departments such as the Dept of Interior, Dept. of Education, Dept. of Labor, Dept. of Agriculture, Dept. of State and so on and so on and so on. DHS, Secret Service, FEMA, TSA, BATFE, Coast Guard, ICE and border patrol, Marshal Service, DEA, Denali Commision, English Language Acquisition Office, Voice of America, White House Commission on Presidetial Scholars, Millennium Challenge Corporation, Selective Service Administration and many others that not needed or are redundant.

By defunding the Departments, bureaus, agencies, etc. not only would the taxpayers save the cost of the salaries, wages and pensions the taxpayers would save billions in the cost of the enforcement of the rules and regulations, not laws, created by these bureaucrats. These laws, rules and regulations would be erased as well. Billions of dollars would now be available for the U.S. citizens use to create and produce the products and services for which this country was renowned for 200 years.

Another part of the bloat of the U.S. government is the subsidies provided for U.S. citizens, illegals, farms, businesses as well as foreign subsidies.

How many billions of dollars do we the taxpayers through the largesse of the federal government spend to subsidize this, that or whatever? By eliminating subsidies at all levels thousands of dollars would again be available to every man, woman and child citizen of the U.S. No longer would the unemployment numbers be lies because everyone that could would be earning a productive living. 100 million Americans would no longer be on the dole from the state or federal government. The cost of higher education would decrease. The cost of fuel and food and medicine would decrease. The time it takes to get from development to market of many products would be reduced.

Just as important, foreign governments and the U. N. would be forced to live without U.S. money. Despots and tyrants could no longer count on the support of the U.S. government. Mexico, Iran, Kenya, Egypt, Isreal, Germany, Syria, Saudia Arabia, Japan, China and all of the rest would have to figure out how to take care of themselves. With this independence other countries would blossom or die due to their own internal abilities or problems.

I’ve only provided two basic areas as part of a “solution” to the problems that we in the United States address every day. Through these two examples I have saved several billion dollars every year.

What other areas could I include? How about repealing the 16th, 17th and 26th amendments to the Constitution of the United States. Shut down the Federal Reserve and the IRS saving billions. Wall Street would no longer be subsidized by the taxpayes. The Senators would again be responsible to the state governments as originally intended. Foreign governments have more representation in Washington, D.C. than do our individual states. Children of less than 21 years of age are not old enough and have not experienced life long enough to be able to cast a vote wisely. Create a loser pays tort system so that the number of frivolous lawsuits are reduced. Restrict the scope of the SCOTUS to U.S. Constitutional Law and strict interpretations of the Constitution based on the writings of the creators of the Constitution.

I could go on for some time, but the two that I have provided encompass a vast area of governance and a potential for huge economic gains for the citizens of the United States.

Thank you for your time,
