Ron Paul wins the election. Then What?Submitted by wraiththirteen on Sat, 09/24/2011 - 16:26
Lets fast forward too Ron Pauls inauguration, he gives his speech orders the troops home drastically weakens the fed and then what? Can he fire everybody in the DOE, or IRS or any of the other unconstitutional, unlawful, unhealthy government agencies?
Are we going to elect hundreds of liberty congressmen and dozens of liberty senators, so that the federal government can save us? I said that to say this, from what I understand philosophically ron paul and most of us are for government that is from the bottom up, or local first. SO my question is what are we doing at the local level to change stuff. If we believe that government should be from the bottom up then we should as best we can change it from the bottom up. That said I dont think government is meant to manage us at all, so when I say change government from the bottom up I mean shrink government from the bottom up.
For instance one of our biggest complaints is how much money the federal government spends, but lets be honest your local school board probably spends tens of millions of dollars a year. In fact in every state it is the number one expense. How difficult would it be for us as individuals to get together in a meetup or in our local churches and find people that are absolutely disgusted with the school system and get several of them together to run for every seat on the school board? If a majority wins then it will take a couple of weeks to get the system from red to black and cut out fifty percent of the expense and not take anymore money or mandates from the FED gov or State gov.
Another example would be what if we could get our guys to run for sheriff all of this country? who would then arrest tsa agents for several charges of possessing child pornography from the body scanners and or charges for groping people?
Or maybe get into some of the county councils and get rid of the red light cameras and add a couple of seconds to the yellow light to reduce accidents.
What I am trying to say is this, if Ron Paul wins (and chances are good) the best we can hope for with just that is a four year stop gap for stupidity from all the bills he vetos. But if we add in a lot of local government rejecting big government and top down government (particularly with our guy in the white house vetoing anything that the other top down government guys send up to keep it that away) Things would get better a lot faster. In military terms we would be flanking our enemies. Ron Paul on one side as president, us on the other side as school board members, sheriffs, county council members, etc reducing the side of government.
