    I LOVE your “Designated Conservative” idea and description. I’ve had it with moderate/liberal quick-to-compromise-conservatism Republicans like John McCain. I started a petition recently which reprimands RINOs and demands a return to Reagan Conservatism. I’d love it if you took a look at the petition, signed it if you agree, and then passed it on:

    Conservatism works. Why do Republicans keep abandoning it?

  2. Re: Taxation of Individuals by the Feds

    Dear Conservative Friend and Fellow Citizen,

    I hate the IRS for many reasons, not the least of which is that each INDIVIDUAL American is at the mercy of the federal government as well as the states. What if the tables were turned?

    I would like to see a system in which the federal government got its funding from the states, then the states got their funding from its citizens. Therefore, the citizens would have a layer of protection (the state) between his checkbook and the long arm of Uncle Sam.

    The states, then, would dictate how much money the federal government would receive, limiting central government power (hoo rah!) The amount owed by each state would be based on the census. Therefore, states like California who have allowed illegal immigration for political purposes would have to die by the same sword and owe more money as a result of their political policy.

    Think about it: how can it be that the federal government has SO MUCH MONEY that they can send money back to the states? It almost smacks of money laundering. If the feds did not an almost unlimited ability to tax, they would not have the ability to return money that they should not have taken in the first place. We could shrink the federal government and strip Congress of a LOT of power. We definitely need that now with the corruption at levels you would not believe if someone had written it into a novel.

    The Fair Tax is better than the current IRS, but I would like to see it taken a step further, and thus my proposal. If you think this idea has merit, please post it on your web site, blog about it, propose it to your elected officials.
