Cleaning up the FBI, DOJ, State Department, etc., etc.

This is so obvious I don’t know why it hasn’t already been done. It is clear that the upper echelon of leaders and directors in the FBI, State Department and the Department of Justice have been involved in collusion in an attempt to subvert the election of 2016, and all subsequent actions against properly elected president Donald J Trump.

They have repeatedly stonewalled congressional requests for documentation. It is CLEAR that they are involved in the criminal activities of the previous administration. There is no other explanation as to why they would refuse to provide the documentation. Trump’s campaign could provide 1.2 million documents in a week. The Department of Justice and the FBI have failed to provide even a modest fraction of that amount in over a year’s time.

It is time to stop playing the game with the leaders of these departments. President Trump should have a national address during which he asks all rank-and-file FBI, DOJ and State Department workers to come forward with any knowledge they have concerning the upper echelons attempts to manipulate the election of 2016 and any subsequent efforts to invalidate Donald J Trump’s presidency.

In the meantime, the president should go directly to the National Security Agency and request the documents which have been stonewalled by the DOJ, the FBI and the State Department. The NSA captures every bit of data generated or transmitted in the United States each and every day. THEY HAVE THE DOCUMENTS. The president should bypass the FBI, Department of Justice and the State Department and get these records directly from the NSA. Hopefully the NSA has not been corrupted as the other departments have been.

It is possible that the NSA has been corrupted as badly as the FBI, DOJ and State Departments have. That is why Pres. Trump should go directly to the rank-and-file members of these three agencies or departments and get PROOF of election interference and/or collusion by their superiors in an attempt to cripple the presidency of the United States. Most of the men and women in law enforcement are honorable individuals and they should recognize the wrongness of what their leaders have done. To NOT correct this problem is to DOOM our country to political cronyism, corruption and personal attacks using the IRS, DOJ and FBI as tools.

Freedom School

Freedom School

Over and over they feed us the line,
Time and again they commit the crime.
They know it’s wrong to impose on us,
and stab our backs when they have our trust.

But the Almighty dollar rules our lives
and makes us cheat and live with lies.
One thing about our country that’s great
is that we don’t have to participate.

As much as it seems that we have no control,
they may own our body but not our soul.
It’s time to put democracy to the test,
It’s time to put the inequities to rest.

Our government is the masses
who’ve forgotten how to rule,
We must educate the people,
We must go to freedom school.

Rule number one at freedom school,
“Find out for yourself, don’t be a fool.”
The second rule that we always teach,
Is “Be silent, or practice what you preach.”
Then we have trusty rule number three,
“You must be aware if you want to be free.”
Now we move on to rule number four,
“It’s fair play that matters, not the end score.”
Rule number five is easy to learn,
“Don’t butt in if it’s not your concern.”
Next in our school is rule number six,
“Blind trust makes victims of dirty tricks.”
Rule number seven says, “Don’t let your vision,
Be fogged by con men selling religion.”
Our personal favorite is rule number eight,
“Personal rights overrule the state.”
Number nine continues number eight,
“Don’t let others control your fate.”
Not last or least is commandment ten,
“You have no right to rule other men.”

The only freedom that’s truly fair
is the freedom we all can share.

The HeinLineback Plan for Fair Government and Representative Taxation.

Shouldn’t you have the right to determine how your tax dollars are spent? Of course you should. Shouldn’t you have the right to representative government? Of course you should.

One of the main contributing factors in the American Revolution was taxation without representation. American colonists were forced to pay taxes to the British government but they had no say in how much or how often the taxes were collected and they had no say in how the taxes were used. The British took their crops, their livestock, and quartered in their homes without the consent of the colonists and without recompense for what the British took. Many colonists had left Europe to get away from oppressive regimes only to have the British government follow them.

Eventually the colonists had enough, they held a little tea party, and they let the British Crown know how unhappy they were. When the British refused to listen to the colonists or to give them any rights other than the right to pay taxes the colonists decided that they had had enough and the seeds of revolution were sown.

The same conditions exist in America today. Our elected misrepresentatives create agencies, bureaus and programs and spend our tax dollars without our consent or approval. When was the last time the US citizen was allowed to decide what government agencies and programs their money was being spent upon? I know it wasn’t during my lifetime.

Our tax dollars go to support things which we would choose not to support. We are stuck paying taxes for items that our corrupt and / or uninformed misrepresentatives have decided to force upon us, many times as a result of special interest groups, or in an effort to reach out to small segments of the population to get their votes. They do not care if they saddle 85% of us with something  WE DON’T WANT in pursuit of the votes of the 15% of the people that do.

They care not how much they spend or how much our government goes into debt. Until a few decades ago the United States had a AAA+++ credit rating, the highest of all credit ratings. Now we are over 20 TRILLION dollars in debt and the AAA+++ credit rating is gone. Republicans have failed repeatedly to rein in government spending and to protect the rights of individuals. They talk the talk without walking the walk. They easily cave to the slightest threat that someone may not vote for them. They believe that getting reelected is far more important than what is best for this country. They care not about the future of the United States or the condition of its citizens, they only care about their own personal power and wealth.

Worse yet, the Democratic party absolutely refuses to entertain any ideas of spending reductions. Each time the budget comes up the Democrats hold the budget hostage until everything they want is paid for. They don’t have any real ideas or solutions so they just want to make everyone a government employee ala Bernie Sanders or to pass out money THAT IS NOT THEIRS to buy votes for their party. Not only do they spend money that is NOT THEIR OWN, they spend YOUR money, your CHILDREN’S money, THEIR children’s money and the money of children yet unborn. They are willing to steal from the future to buy votes today, because they have no real solutions on anything. I do. It is called The HeinLineback Plan for Fair Government and Representative Taxation.

Our elected misrepresentatives have shown that they are not responsible with our money and they should not be able to decide how it is spent.

In the first American Revolution shots were fired and people died. I do not propose violent methods. The Second American Revolution can be bloodless. I now propose a plan which will enable the citizens of the United States to take the government away from the irresponsible and put it back in the hands of the people.

The HeinLineback plan is a combined government reduction and taxation plan that limits the ability of our government officials to sell us out in pursuit of their own ends. It is very simple and it is the ONLY fair tax plan being proposed. A great side benefit is a more responsible government.

The bare bones are as follows:

In the first year all tax rates will remain exactly the same as they are. The ONLY difference is EACH AND EVERY PERSON in the United States that pays taxes will be able to designate how the tax dollars will be used.

Each person that so chooses will be able to log onto a site monitored by citizen watchdog groups and designate how their tax dollars are used. Each person will be able to designate by program, agency or governmental department where they want their tax dollars to go. If, for some reason, they choose NOT to designate where their tax dollars go, they can opt to have their taxes go into a general fund. It is not the idea of this plan to force any citizen to do anything they don’t want to do, in fact it is quite the opposite.

If you believe that it is important to support the poor then you can designate your tax dollars to go to programs such as welfare and other public assistance. If you believe that having a strong defense is vital to our national security you can designate your tax dollars to be largely used there. If you are concerned about our infrastructure there will be a place for that. If our national debt is your concern there will be a way to apply your taxes to that.

The benefits of this plan are threefold. First and foremost it will limit our elected officials ability to add and/or fund programs for special interest groups against the will of the American voter. The second effect will not be as immediate, but it WILL lead to a reduction in government spending as Departments, Agencies and Programs which the American people refuse to fund cease to exist. As the agencies that Americans choose not to fund cease to exist more funds will be available for what they DO want to fund. Eventually only programs citizens CHOOSE to fund will be funded and the tax burden will be reduced as people will no longer be paying for programs and services which they choose not to pay for.

This will also have the effect of forcing governmental agencies and departments to be more responsive to the American people because if they fail to provide the services they are supposed to provide to the American people they will be defunded and they will cease to exist.

Ideally, AT EACH LEVEL, from the local to the federal, the American citizen will be able to decide how those taxes are applied. The tax plan will include use-based taxes such as gasoline taxes, property taxes, etc., etc. No longer will the average citizen be forced to pay for things they do not want or do not use, such as playgrounds for the rich (i.e. opera houses and art galleries) sports arenas, medical treatment for noncitizens, housing for noncitizens, or education for noncitizens.

People that do not want a border wall will not be forced to pay for one. If the funds to build a border wall are not able to be raised there will be no border wall. If some city, populated by radical leftists, decides that they would be better off without law enforcement, they can defund the police department.  Again the public defunding option is the FASTEST way to bring about responsible representation. Agencies that realize there is a possibility they will have no operating funds if the citizens so choose will provide services in a responsible and timely fashion or they will cease to exist.

Our government has ignored the will of the people far too long. It is time to institute the HeinLineback plan and take back America.

The Near Death of Pride

There are many problems in American society today. They range from the smallest issues for the youngest people to the largest issues for the oldest people. They span the societal, intellectual and economic strata. One problem lying at the root of many of those problems is a lack of pride. The behavior of individuals, governments and corporations are all suffering from a lack of pride.

The Bible teaches that pride is a sin. It is not. As long as our pride is not misplaced and we do not feel pride for things which are sociopathic like murder, robbery and rape, pride is a very good thing. Being proud of oneself leads one to live a virtuous life. People that have no self pride are willing to participate in the lowest acts. They care not about their reputations or their integrity.

Recently we had a president who went out of his way to squash American pride. He went on a world-wide apology tour. He preached that everything Americans had done and had previously known was wrong. He taught them that they should feel shame for living in a good society, for having a high standard of living, and for being world leaders.

He tried to shame us and take away our pride so that he and other like thinking individuals could do whatever they wished to do to our country. They hoped we would be so ashamed of ourselves and our country that we would not feel like we were worthy enough to even question any of the decisions the elite left made or to have any input as to which direction America and the world was going. Fortunately it didn’t work on everyone.

America has its problems. It always has and always will, but there is absolutely no reason to be ashamed of being in America or being an American. In fact there are lots of reasons to be proud of being an American.

Following World War II United States was the undisputed world power. With the use of the atomic bomb we could have conquered the entire world. The United States could have stripped the resources of every conquered country and left them with nothing. The United States could have made them all colonies of the United States. We did not. In fact we helped rebuild those countries and reinstituted a government for their people.

Does anyone believe that the Germans, Japanese or Russians would have done the same thing following World War II if they had possessed the atomic bomb?

Americans are the most generous people in the world. We have sent disaster, economic and medical aid to virtually every country on the planet at one time or another. We have helped 3rd world countries who were unable to help themselves and who had nothing to offer us in return.

Do not let the “Moral Superiority” shame you. If they feel shame they are welcome to it. They should know if they deserve to feel ashamed or not.

Be an honorable person with integrity and be brave enough to speak your mind. Do not let others browbeat or bully you with their political correctness and/or their moral superiority for frequently those traits exist only in their stated ideals and not in their daily practices.

Do the right thing. Be PROUD of it. Reject shame unless YOU have actually done something shameful.

To Rise Above

To Rise Above

To rise above anger, hate and despair,
to sail unchained in the rarified air,
to stand your ground when no one cares,
to bravely go where no one dares,

to find your principles and hold them fast,
to remain self-true when you’re the last,
to say “enough” when you’ve had your fill,
to rise above is a matter of will.

Down here is unreason, pain and bad love,
they cannot bind when you rise above.
There is a difference between truth and lies,
to see what it is just open your eyes.

Many are mired in financial gain,
without great wealth their world is a pain.
Things besides cash can we have a wealth of,
and all can bring joy when we rise above.

To find your principles and hold them fast,
to remain self-true when you’re the last,
to say “enough” when you’ve had your fill,
to rise above is a matter of Will.

I think a large majority of people of all political affiliations will tell you that they are not happy with our government. There are many varied and valid reasons why. Depending upon who you ask the government is too big, or it is not big enough, it is too controlling or it isn’t responsive enough, it doesn’t care about the poor or it doesn’t care about the working man, etc., etc.

Even though each citizen may have different ideas about which way we think the country should be going almost all of us can all agree that our elected officials are not leading us there. It is long past time to take control of our government back from those who would subvert it.
