Working Together for a Better America

american-flag-009Donald Trump was always a roll of the dice. We rolled the dice because the only alternative was to accept our destruction as a country and as a people. Now, we must work together to rebuild America for all Americans, regardless of our disagreements.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Only federalism can unite a vast country like America in which large groups of people have irresolvable differences of opinion about morality, politics, and religion. Our Constitution left most decisions to states and localities, limiting the federal government to enumerated powers for specific national interests: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” (10th Amendment, in The Bill of Rights)

  • Equality under the law for everyone. Special privileges for no one.

  • Limited only by basic human rights, the good of the many outweighs the good of the few. Law and social policy should promote the interests of the majority while respecting the legitimate rights of minorities.

  • Immigration policy should protect Americans and American society.

  • Americans and Somalis (et al) are not interchangeable.

  • Men and women are not interchangeable.

  • There are only two sexes. Accept reality.

  • Corporations (including banks) are legal fictions chartered by the government. They should serve the public interest. The public is not here to serve them.

  • The mission of education is to educate, not to babysit, to humor the mentally ill, to foment social destruction, or to provide jobs for people with worthless victims-studies degrees.

  • The mission of the courts is to interpret and apply the law, not to create new law from the bench.

  • The American flag symbolizes our country, its people, and its history. If you feel like burning it, spitting on it, or stepping on it, then you may leave. Saudi Arabia would be happy to take you.
