The Department of Common Sense (DCS)
Over the course of the last several days, I have had a revelation on how I think this country should handle the current mess it has gotten itself into. I believe the time has come that we be more open minded and somewhat progressive. I believe perhaps we need expand our government with a new agency. This agency is designed to restore, revitalize, and to return this land back into the nation our forefathers once believed it would/should be. More importantly, its main focus will be to restore Common Sense back into the daily functions of this country.
That is why I am suggesting we start the Department of Common Sense (DCS). This would oversee ALL of the cabinet positions. It would be led by the Secretary of Common Sense.
To advance logical thinking by utilizing common sense to develop and procure the freedoms and liberties for the American people. Providing common sense in an official, timely and accurate manner to apply to all government related organizations, functions and operations. To create policies, to promote logic and to eliminate the poorly informed, ill-mannered, unlawful, the unintelligent and obtusely elected officials from furthering the destruction of this Nation.
The main mission of this job would be:
- Turn over as many of the current federal responsibilities back to the State and Local governments to run.
- Reallocate as many federal jobs back over to the private industry.
- Reduce the fraudulent acts, the abuse and the waste that is currently swallowing us up alive.
- Allocate the new Secretary to utilize their God given sense of reasoning to do what is best for the Country….and report back to the White House with their newly found goals and ideas.
As the founding “dude” of this new entity, I would like to nominate Will Starr and Old Poolman to be the first Co-Secretaries of the Department of Common Sense to head off this mission. I can think of several wonderful folks from hubpages that would be fantastic, but these two constantly have displayed Common Sense on a regular basis since I have been a member.
I suggest that they be free to hire a staff to fulfill these obligations, and give them a per-Diem for meals and board, plus any expenses they deem appropriate. After all, they are entrusted as our forefathers were, to utilize the brain God gave them for the betterment of this Nation.
Even though it may appear I write this in jest, I think there could be much to this thought process, and honestly would love nothing more than a return of Common Sense in America.
If you have suggestions of members to add to this department or ideas to add, please feel free to do so.
