Republican Weight Loss Program March 4, 2009

Are you tired of that bloated legislative feeling? Feeling over taxed?
Worried about that growing waste line? Uncontrollable spending urges?

Then try my new 42-step program: San-eat-y.  Guaranteed to add juicy vote-ables to your diet for a leaner party platform to stand on.  No point system to compromise on.  Just a good foundation of principles you can be proud of.  And each meal is PORK free!

Sound too good to be true.  It might take 2 years to see results? Or 4? But let’s not take 8 years to solve this problem.

Over time I will lay out a plan of sites and material to guide us all, from beginner to experienced, to become more aware of what needs fixin’, how to do it, who to support, and where, why and what ever other questions need to be included.  I’ll share discoveries of efforts that encourage me when the political forecast is scary, and I invite others to help create a guide to prepare for future elections.  Please don’t just drop names and sites and leave it at that.  Or point to a politician’s own website (but do include it with supportive material).  We need to focus on what works and why, and what doesn’t work.  We need more than the maintenance programs that government current supplies (using the same “patch it and ignore it” solutions expecting different results).



1. Sanity - March 10, 2009

Ok, this isn’t exclusive to the Republicans. I just have more optimism more of them can live without pork.

I haven’t had time to visit certain sites to organize steps of my ‘plan’ yet, but I’ll start now, renumber later, back peddle after that, recycle the paper and finalize the plan on ‘green’ webspace.

Step 1: Believe things CAN change for the better.
Corollary: Not all change is good and a LOT of change all at once is worse.
There are people that have the courage to prove things and/or illustrate what works and why.

Adam Shepard one person on the rise. He will be on 20/20 on ABC this Friday 03/13/09 in a segment on “Bailouts, Big Spending, and Bull”. Check out his website to see why, based on his book “Scratch Beginnings”. Best of luck to him. We don’t need government spending $1000 on a toilet seat or maintenance programs that don’t solve problems. We need experience like Adam’s showing them how to wisely spend money.

I’ve also mentioned David Barton before at http://www.wallbuilders.com. I’ve been listening to podcasts of his radio program and it is amazing how much there is to learn of and from our founders.
(Trivia: How did Washington D.C. get its name?)

Through his site, I learned of http://www.patriotacademy.com/ which really boosted my hope for future leaders, but they still need our understanding and participation to strengthen this country.

For the more advanced participant (i.e. more time, faster reader…), http://www.govtrack.us/ is supposed to be good for tracking legislation and what individual politicians are doing. I have not had the time for the site yet, but accountability is high on my list for the next election.

That’s enough for now. 41 more steps to fill in.
