10 Steps to Save America

Original Article

Posted By: GustoGrabber, 12/19/2022 7:22:52 AM

Most Americans know something has gone terribly wrong—and very abruptly—with the United States. They are certain that our wounds are almost all self-inflicted. The current pathologies are not a result of a natural disaster, an exhaustion of natural resources, plagues, or an existential war. Crushing national debt and annual deficits, spiraling food and fuel costs amid “normal” seven-percent-plus annual inflation, bread-and-circuses entitlements, a nonexistent border, a resurgence of racial tribalism, pandemic violent criminality, and humiliation abroad—all these pathologies are easily cited as symptoms of a sick patient. Our crises are not as the Left maintains

Most of which can be implemented by adoption of a strict definition of Constitutional "interstate commerce". Much of what is regulated by the Feds today is dependent on a ridiculous interpretation of "interstate commerce" as anything that could theoretically affect interstate commerce if done en masse. (It is a corruption of the doctrine brought to us by Roosevelt's corrupt Supreme Court.)

VDH gets it right, again. On reforming higher education, the most realistic reform needed is ending the current student loan program, financed and administered by the government. A one-time forgiveness does nothing to fix a broken system. The system needs to go back to what it was before the Obama administration changed it--bank loans guaranteed by the government with strictly enforced caps. No Parent Plus loans for unlimited amounts with exorbitant interest rates. Graduate students should be allowed to participate in the government-backed program but also be subject to caps. Graduate students should also have to submit parent financial information until they are 24. This would force the colleges back into awarding need-based grants to make up the difference between the loan amounts and the cost of attending. There should be three components to college costs--family contribution, loans in a capped amount, and need-based grants from the schools. Scholarships should take the place of loans in the calculation.

The animals are out of the barn, VDH, and they’re not coming back. Typical conservatism, we need to return to a halcyon past. We indeed did this to ourselves. We borrowed and spent for all sorts of nonsense, from welfare to warfare. I didn’t hear much “conservative” opposition to tossing $14 TRILLION away for COVIDS welfare and “vaccines.” Conservatives have no program to do anything, except build that wall and overlard military and law enforcement spending, furthering our “security” state. Six Republican states confirmed Biden electors in ‘20 under highly suspicious circumstances. No investigation of note anywhere. Lock up innocents for J6. No conservative response of note. Conservatives can’t win sustainably with charlatans “leading” and lack of a serious agenda. Politics ain’t beanbag.

Of course he is right. But again, he isn't telling us anything we don't already know. Many years ago Milton Friedman told us that inflation is caused by government printing and spending money, and nothing else. It's A GIVEN. Sure his 10 points are correct, but none of them can be implemented until we defeat the left. On the method for this first step, Hanson is silent.

I "liked" #3, but immediately did more thinking. The whole loan program needs to be even more strict. We know from experience that if one is a homeowner, with any money in the bank, FAFSA loans (what they called them back in the day) are nearly impossible to get. Which basically make the whole program just another form of welfare, probably funding a lot of "-studies" degrees. I wonder how much defaults are prosecuted. Like insurance in the health industry, it drives up the cost of everything.

VDH only dreams. Half the US population sees nothing wrong with the way things are and, truthfully believes that we've yet only enacted half-measures towards what they believe are desirable goals. Hanson is the philosopher historian yelling 'the sky is falling' - and in this story it really is. The Old Testament Jews never believed the prophets God sent. Too few will ever believe Hanson until America is also carted away by Babylon into some ChiCom gulag as the new Uyghurs.

VDH is an excellent commentator, a national treasure . . . however I think he should have started this article with 2 Chronicles 7-14 as the very first step, then all the other steps to fall in line. Without a change of heart, without a change of conscience . . . as "they" say . . . ain't gonna happen. IMHO, of course.

These are common sense thoughts which are all well taken. The biggest difficulty to overcome is the idea that we have to accept all the corruption without question and that we cannot go back because of a "new 'normal'". The new normal which began to unravel our society began with NoBama and the perversion of the 10 ideas mentioned in the article are almost impossible to overcome due to fear and manipulation of our information sources presenting 'agendas' and 'narratives' which take over any opposition. VDH is a national treasure of common sense and his columns at American Greatness are must reads.

Reminds of a movie scene where the doctor walks into the hospital room, takes one look at the patient (in this case, the United States), and mutters to himself "Terminal', and quietly walks out. Seriously, does anyone think Washington will save America? They are the ones destroying it. The only thing I did not see in the VDH article is growing business and jobs to increase tax revenue. Can't raise taxes anymore considering how it has reached a point of diminishing returns.

VDH is becoming as insufferable and obvious as Hannity. The very things that are destroying our country are those upon which our politicians thrive. Overspending, crushing debt, handouts to parasites, division, wasting money on imaginary causes and problems - if not for that horrible mismanagement, politicians would cease to exist. They are not going to fix what keeps them alive so the solution is to get rid of the politicians and install leaders.

Great suggestions to get things started Unfortunately this administration and Congress are not interested in saving America at least not for the average American nor for ideals of what this country was founded on and a sense of nationalistic independence. The Shock and after affects that are about to happen cannot be avoided at this late date and it will occur in a few months. I know that is a negative assessment but sometimes systems especially complex systems simply fail with devastating consequences.

Some of the solutions are possible with the right leadership and Congress but much is unattainable because of "Drain the Swamp". Political and criminal blackmail is currency in the swamp and, like organized crime, no one will thrive until the swamp bosses have control of them. They cannot control Trump and it is why they constantly try to destroy him by other means.

#10 is correct. Election integrity (or lack thereof) is THE reason Dimocrats are able to run the country into the ground. Nothing will improve until we fix that. Then it will take 50-100 years to undo their damage. By then, China/Russia will own the USA. For once there’s a benefit to being older. Fewer years left to watch us slide into the abyss

In the 1870s, the term “robber baron” was first used to describe an exploitative class of industrialists who utilized their wealth to create monopolies of resources and amass control in the fledgling United States. The name describes an illegitimate aristocracy of unelected plutocrats. John D. Rockefeller, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Andrew Carnegie; all American industrial royalty whose names line the streets of America and the pages of our history books. One hundred fifty years later, we face a new global class of robber barons. Once a year, the world’s richest and most influential people meet behind closed doors in Davos, Switzerland, to discuss the future direction of the globe.

Why Does the GOP Elite Hate Its Own Base? 44 replies

It is one of the most bitter and tragic ironies of our contemporary politics that the leadership of one of America’s two major political parties, the Republican Party, utterly despises that party’s very own voting base. The GOP elite’s scorn for its own voters has, at this point, been a long time in the making. The trend accelerated during the 2009-2011 rise of the Tea Party, a grassroots movement fueled by constitutionalism and anti-elite populism. The crustier elements of the Republican establishment ran as far away as possible from the Tea Party, and the 2012 presidential coronation of private equity plutocrat Mitt Romney effectively killed the movement.

On November 15, 2022, several of the world’s biggest banks agreed to a shocking new plan — one that could lead to a complete overthrow of the U.S. dollar as we know it. Sponsored by the New York Federal Reserve, participants in this plan include banking giants like Wells Fargo, Citigroup, HSBC, and Mastercard, just to name a few. The pilot program — dubbed “Project Cedar” — would convert regular U.S. dollars into a brand-new type of dollar, which could have massive implications for all American citizens. But “Project Cedar” is just the second step in a complete overhaul of the U.S. banking system.

Reports surfaced two weeks ago that Florida Republicans are considering changing the state’s “resign-to-run” law so Governor Ron DeSantis could throw his hat in the ring for the 2024 presidential nomination without losing his governorship.

DeSantis is a promising politician with a real future on the national scene. He should want to be president. But not yet. DeSantis needs to understand his true self-interest. Running for president in 2024 isn’t it.

Trump. Idealists who pushed a globally managed new world order after the Cold War, they advocated failed nation-building around the world, compromised domestically with tax-and-spend neoliberals, contentedly ceded control of cultural politics to the Left, and ended up a dainty, bow-tied coterie of controlled opposition subsumed by Washington’s ossified elite.

The question in the title needs, I believe, critical examination. Why DOES the Left hate Trump so much? The answer, as usual, can largely be found by analyzing history. But first. Do they hate him because the average price of a gallon of gas in his administration was far lower than under Biden? Is it because inflation was low (around 2%) and trending downward? Is it that the USA was energy independent and didn’t need to beg our enemies for oil, deplete our strategic oil reserve or sell it to China? Is it because black and Hispanic unemployment was lower than at any time in history?

PORTLAND, Ore. — Policymakers for the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality on Monday approved a rule that prohibits the sale of new gasoline-powered passenger vehicles in Oregon by 2035.

The transportation sector accounts for nearly 40% of greenhouse gas emissions in Oregon.
