My Plan to Unite Americans

Americans Unite!

I published an article entitled Partition America, which received mostly excellent reviews and enjoyed wide readership.

The only naysayers were Liberals who felt that instead of Partition, a way should be sought where Americans can stop squabbling and unite behind a common agenda.

I would love to be a uniter—not a divider. Therefore, I have a plan to do just that: Unite Americans.

Illegal Immigration

To solve the immigration problem, I propose that we make it law that every illegal in this country must come in and register with the government—with a promise of no deportations for anyone who has steady employment and no criminal record. Issue them a three-year work visa.

Anyone who does not show up to register or come back for an interview after the three-year visa expires, is to be deported immediately. If they keep employment for three years straight, paying taxes and FICA, without committing a crime; start them on a process to become permanent residents of America, on the condition that they can never receive any public assistance; and they can never vote or register to vote or try to vote.

If they don't want to become a permanent resident but are employed, they may receive another three-year visa instead. Anyone convicted of a felony will have their visa revoked and be deported after their sentence if fulfilled.

Eliminate the automatic citizenship by birthright, which is very rare in the world anyway. No more 'Anchor Babies.'

We outlaw Sanctuary Cities. We end the Immigration Lottery. We end Chain Migration. We build a Wall.

A Solution to our Medical Care Costs

To solve the medical care crisis, I propose that we overhaul the system. My plan starts with tort reform, to limit settlements in medical malpractice claims to $250,000—saving at least $25,000,000,000 per year and thus lowering the cost of health care. And to win any settlement it has to be proved that the doctor was willfully negligent, not just that as a human being who is only practicing medicine anyway he simply made a mistake.

We should open up competition among medical care insurance companies to where they compete for customers nationwide, just like GEICO, State Farm, and Allstate do now for car insurance. Competition always drives down prices.

Insurance should be decoupled from employment. We should buy health insurance individually the way we buy all other insurance. This will spur employment by removing the burden of this cost from employers who must offer the exact same plan to everyone.

This industry should be deregulated so that dozens of medical insurance companies can offer many more insurance plans for people—freedom of choice. If I want no insurance, because I do not believe in traditional medicine, or don't believe I am going to get sick, I should have that right. If I want an inexpensive policy that only covers serious illness or accidental injury, I should have that right. If I want a full boat policy that covers dental, eyewear, holistic medicine, chiropractors, Viagra, plastic surgery, every trip I make to a doctor or even coverage for my pets, I should have the right to buy that.

I would ban insurance companies from investigating existing conditions, only allowing the charging of any rate they want to charge—against stiff competition—to vary by age (as life insurance does). The rate you pay when you sign up should remain the same until you reach retirement age.

I would turn over billing of Medicare and Medicaid to Visa/MasterCard—savings $90,000,000,000 per year (by reducing fraud).

Lastly, I would stop health care providers from reporting their deadbeats to the credit bureau. Getting unexpectedly sick or hurt is not the same as signing a contract to borrow money, and it shouldn't ruin one's credit when disaster strikes. I don't think it helps collect the funds anyway. All it does is hurt people.

Community Organizers, NEA, NPR & PBS

I propose that the taxpayers no longer provide funds to any community organizations of any stripe. If what they are doing is worthwhile, let them find private funding for their activities. This system is rife with fraud and exists mostly to game the taxpayers. 99% of them are partisan to one political party and it is egregious for people of both parties to fund them with the sweat of their brows.

I propose that we defund the National Endowment for the Arts. Any art that people want to see they will pay to see; or private endowments will be made because someone deems the art important enough to fund it for all. The government has no business deciding the public value between my art and your art.

I also propose no more federal money for NPR or PBS. States can fund them, private donors can fund them.

Fannie & Freddie, Public Employee Unions & Grant Money

I propose the government sell Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, thereby getting out of the mortgage business.

I propose that unionization efforts continue to only use the secret ballot.

I propose that all unions for public employees be disbanded and public employees barred from unionizing - as they were for all of American history until the 1960s. The public is not a robber baron that some little helpless guy needs defense against. And the endless cycle of billions of taxpayer money finding its way back to the Democratic Party after being laundered by unions - a scam if there ever was one - has to cease.

I propose that all grant money be accounted for and transparently distributed, and distributed 50% to Conservative organizations, with a web site where any citizen can view where their tax dollars have gone. Further, any money dispensed must be voted on by Congress. Let's eliminate 'pork' spending, as well, by making Congress vote on any line of a bill that includes tax monies.

Education

I propose we allow parents to send their children to any school they see fit with vouchers. If it costs $7500 of taxpayer money per year to educate a child, a taxpayer should have the right to send their child to the government run schools—or a Christian, or Jewish, or secular private school of their choice.

This way, Conservatives can stop bellyaching about the homosexual public school agenda; the Darwinism; the religion of Secular Humanism; the religious songs about President Obama; The denigration of President Trump by leftist teachers who tell the children he is like Hitler; the indoctrination of our children into ideas they staunchly oppose (while using their money to do it).

Conservatives can have the same amount of funds to send their child for the type of education they want their children to have—and Liberals can implement any agenda they want in the public schools because there will be no one left who cares to oppose them. The can promote Atheism, hedonism, America-hating, white privilege, 20,000 'genders', or even pure Satanism.

I propose that all federal funds for universities be forfeited unless 50% of the faculty and invited speakers are Conservatives.

I propose that the federal government no longer have any involvement in student loans. Private companies and banks can loan to creditworthy folks, and states can have special programs.

Abortion

Lastly, I turn to abortion. It's hard to find common ground on this one. The trend is not good for Pro-Abortion folks. The last poll shows Pro-Life up by 52% to 41%.

I have a solution that will stop the fighting over it. We pass a Constitutional Amendment repealing Roe v Wade, devolving the abortion question to States Rights.

Therefore, by voter referendum or by state legislatures, each state can have their own abortion laws, appropriate to the kind of people (the majority anyway) who live there.

In some states it may be banned altogether, in others paid for by state funds, in others somewhere in between regarding parental notification, health care provider conscience clauses, methods used, live birth problems, trimester restrictions, infanticide etc.

With this, I propose the Federal Government no longer support Planned Parenthood with taxpayer funds, but individual states may, and private donors, of course, may.

I hope this plan can be agreed to by the vast majority of Americans, thereby uniting us, not dividing us.
