Here are some Tweets I posted this past week:
To establish capitalism, man’s need to be free, & therefore prosperous, must be recognized.
We should demand de-regulation of our economy. We should declare the new health care law unconstitutional.
We should begin to phase out some of the most strangulating regulations, such as the Anti-Trust Laws.
We should begin to dismantle the welfare state. We should restore individual rights, limited government and free markets.
Gov’t does not create values. Only free minds working voluntarily create values—such as food, shelter, clothing, transportation.
Gov’t does not create jobs. Offering values, private individuals create jobs, which they offer to other men.
Big gov’t stifles innovation, strangles free competition, invites corruption and wastes money.
The present number of gov’t employees is about two million individuals. Their salaries range from $50,000 to $150,000 per annum.
2 million times an average of one hundred thousand dollars = $20,000,000,000,000 per annum that taxpayers pay for.
To restore individual rights and implement capitalism, we should start to de-regulate the economy.
We should de-regulate transportation, returning buses, subways and trains to private enterprise from which they were confiscated.
We should start to de-regulate the banks, savings and retirement accounts. Get the gov’t out of our pocketbooks.
To restore individual rights and implement capitalism, we should get gov’t out of education and gov’t control of textbooks.
We should start to phase out gov’t regulation of agriculture, trucking, shipping, the importing and exporting of goods.
We should start to de-regulate real estate, mortgages, land, business and residential development. Close Fannie and Freddie Mae.
De-regulate communications including radio, TV, telephone and telegraph.
Gov’t employees number about 2 million. Average salary is $75,000 per year, which sums to $150,000,000,000, which taxpayers pay.
Terminate all the jobs held by those individuals presently in the agenices that regulate the economy.
Sell or rent to private enterprises the buildings that presently house the regulatory agencies.
The money saved and the revenue gained should be used to off-set and lower income taxes on all Americans.
Spending earnings increases trade; saving earnings expands production. Both actions raise the standard of living.
Gov’t salaries don’t raise living standards. Elected officials salaries exceed taxpayers’, whose taxes pay gov’t salaries.
Reps and Senators number 535. Salaries range from $160K to $237K. Average is $198,500 times 535 = $106,197,500 per annum taxpayers pay.
