Section 1. The Government of the United States shall not engage in any business, professional, commercial, financial, or industrial enterprise except as specified in the Constitution.
No more: Welfare, Medicare, Medicaid, EPA, NASA Non-Military Research Branch (military applications still okay), and a whole host of other things. Basically: Bye-Bye non-violent or regulatory citizen protections. Probably not his INTENT but that’s what it…Continue

Are you serious people? The reality of limiting government in a free market is allowing corporations to run rampant like the Republicans just did for 20 years.

If I close my eyes I can see a great society, a golden age, a superpower of social equality and liberty. I see a powerful nation, not on the might of the military-industrial complex, but on the might of the liberated-innovation complex.
