According to shocking new numbers that were just released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 20 percent of American families do not have a single person that is working. So when someone tries to tell you that the unemployment rate in the United States is about 7 percent, you should just laugh. One-fifth of the families in the entire country do not have a single member with a job. That is absolutely astonishing. How can a family survive if nobody is making any money? Well, the answer to that question is actually quite easy. There is a reason why government dependence has reached epidemic levels in the United States

Determine the difference between import and U.S. manufacture. Impose an excise tax equivalent to the difference. The assessed amount per item and set aside in an entitlement account. The money to be used as interest free long term loans to responsible individuals or registered U.S. companies to manufacture nonessential goods covered by the fund. Efficient, manufacturing and labor standards established by industry to be maintained. Project companies are also to be free of corporate taxes for a three year period of time.
Fiscal means: financial or pertaining to the treasury or revenue parts of the government. Responsibility is having a legal or moral obligation to or being accountable for something or someone.
Although the definition of the two words making up the term fiscal responsibility means having an obligation to or being accountable for the finances or the revenue and treasury departments, the term is used to describe everything from financial reform to tax cuts.
Taxes: HR 25 (For complete article go to www.cfabamerica.com )
Earmarks: An earmark is a legislative (especially congressional) provision that directs approved funds to be spent on specific projects, or that directs specific exemptions…
Health Care: Is a right and when funded through taxes collected by authorizing a cost spilt across all sector it will be affordable. When HR 25 the fair tax law is passed all individuals will pay according to their purchases.
Most Americans believe, as I did, we should have representation in taxation. We do not, however when H.R. 25 is passed we will be represented by what we purchase. Which in fact means every individual regardless of their immigration status or race, creed, color, religion or sexual preference, will also be represented. Non-profit organization as well as the rich and poor will pay federal taxes one time, at the time of purchase, thus allowing manufacturers to return to producing items made in America
Is an issue where individuals have taken a stand for or against, as a governments right to force their will against that of a woman and or her spiritual advisers’. If a religious group is against abortion then that organization should and must provide the health care and support required for the woman and child. No government should set or pass laws which go against the church because this would be constitutionally incorrect. The separation of church and state is such that the government can not set any laws that would violate an individual’s religious freedom, however it should be noted that “we the people” have a right to voice our opinion at the polls.
The safety of the whole should be protected by one of the organizations, which would be under commerce, a committee made up of representations from each state as represented by our congress.
The public school system is unconstitutionally structured due to the influence of the Federal Government; the responsibility of education belongs to the parent and the State. The State and a committee should be formed by each State to better organize and equally distribute educational reforms. In order for this to take place a constitutional amendment may be needed, but until such time funds collected by the State for the Federal Taxes as outlined by HR 25 should fund education. No State or community should lack funds for education. A hybrid school system should be formed and cost of education should be reduced and provided free to all individuals. The current school system is teaching evolution and not creation. The teaching of evolution violates the constitution of separation of church and state.
Immigration policies will become a lesser issue when HS 25 is passed. Consumption tax will make money from everyone who buys anything.
To promote freedom, fairness, and economic opportunity, repeal the income tax and other taxes, abolishing the Internal Revenue Service, and enacting a national sales tax to be administered primarily by the States.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances
The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights.
In 2008 and 2010, the Supreme Court issued two Second Amendment decisions. In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the
Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. In dicta, the Court listed many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession as being consistent with the Second Amendment. In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government.
The Tenth Amendment (Amendment X) to the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791. The Tenth Amendment states the Constitution’s principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the federal government nor prohibited to the States by the Constitution are reserved to the States or the people.

Bring back draft-all 18 years serve one year
A military draft is beneficial because it expands the military in size and age range. A draft provides a quick way for the military to expand its size because of the thousands of people who will be required to join. The military will also benefit from fewer expenses in advertising for recruits. Military drafts help to reach young people who may not be in touch with their government system. People in their early 20s will be required to join the military and learn about how the government functions. Young people are also strong and can bear the military life longer than those who are older.
A benefit of enlisting a military draft is to secure America’s status among other nations. WashingtonMonthly.com published an article by Phillip Carter and Paul Glastris called, “The Case for the Draft.” The authors state that a draft helps America remain as the world’s superpower. A modernized draft would ensure that everyone in the country participates, including the privileged. If everyone participates, the U.S. military will remain one of the largest in the world. The article suggests creating a large number of ground troops with a draft. According to the article, an all-volunteer military will not help American remain as a superpower in the 21st century.
Train and release, after review, individuals incarcerated except for murders, rapist and child molesters, in return they commit to four years of duty to help protect America in foreign lands. Upon receiving a honorable discharge four years of college or cross trained in to another field
Anyone receiving benefits, due to unemployment, from the government other than Social Security, Education and or Medical care should be required to either be in a school: cross training, education or performing a voluntary service to the communities for three hours per work week day during the time that they are unemployed and receiving assistance,
The age for those to start paying into a new social security system should be 13 years of age and these individuals age of retirement will be 70 years old, all others will continue in the current system with funding coming from taxes collected pursuant to the passing of HR 25,
Medicare or medical coverage:
Is a right and will be funded by taxes collected from HR 25,
The two party systems have failed. We the people must form a new system. A third political party made up of Citizens for a Better America which would make government more competitive. Politicians have become richer at the expense of the poor and middle classes. No one serving the people should, while in a political office, benefit personally from the holding of such office that they were elected into for the purpose of serving the people.
Citizens, stop supporting individuals with your time and money who are only running for office for their own political gain, but support those who will defend your constitutional rights of freedom to educate and teach your children your own ethical and moral standards.
It is about time that “we the people” stand up and use that what God gave us. Our future is derived from the use of that which we have learned. To believe in our current system of governmental operation would require re-writing history. Educating our children to spend everything we may have accumulated and counterfeit money to spend more is not the American way, we the people must take back our government.
PROJECT “BRING JOBS HOME: MADE IN AMERICA”
To establish a condition which will enable allow U.S.A. manufacturers to compete with foreign imported products. To manufacture at least 62 to 72 percent of non-essential items sold in the United States on American soil until such time that the Fair Tax bill HS25/S296 is modified and passed.
The meaning of nonessential is described as: products not required for basic survival. The number of these items we purchase every day is staggering, beyond one’s imagination. Furthermore to base our livelihood on tourism, service industries and continued technological advances, which may be ready for market in the near future is absurd, and unrealistic. Using this agenda, sitting and waiting, we are essentially waiting for the rest of the world to NEED us. This is no way to turn our economy around. Our exports principally involve agricultural, agricultural equipment, military equipment and automobiles
To remain solvent and secure we have to manufacture the majority of products sold in this country on American soil. Regardless of the fact, the nonessential products will cost a little more. Those who are either protecting their own position or lack “street smarts” will say Americans are hurting now, it cannot be done. With that kind of thinking, they could be part of a mathematical group that scholastically placed the United States number twenty six (26) in the world “Production”, China ranks number one. Remember, money re-circulated within the country produces the foundation for expansion. The object is to attract investment by those who have money in opposition to our government borrowing from countries selling us product. Once in business, owners will inevitably develop new products, many suitable for exportation. All of which generates higher paying jobs and benefits.
The equal opportunity manufacturing program insures stability of product pricing. In other words, cost will not be affected by the non competitive labor of other countries.
Failure to recognize imports far exceeding exports is inexcusable. Political parties and elected personnel steering clear of issues that might affect their future is not acceptable. Since when can a family, company or country continually spend more than it produces? Our annual trade deficit has progressively escalated for many years. In 2010 the deficit exceeded the highest amount recorded in our history. In fact we are outsourcing our military to private security companies whose main objective is to make a profit not to defend our country.
The political position of other countries could change at any moment. Energy and transportation may be delayed or discontinued at anytime. Last but not least, it is understood that an unfavorable percentage of our military equipment or parts are also manufactured in other countries. This places our armed forces in a highly vulnerable precarious position. We should be very proud of our military. Keep in mind that every soldier depends on teamwork for survival. Failing to do our part by supporting home based manufacturing could result in non military personnel having to deter insurgents at our back door.
Yes, there are benefits with free trade, greater stability, understanding and generally an improved level of security. It’s better than trying to buy an alliance by giving money away, “in moderation” also apply. We must remember. Moderation as measured by the rich would be greater than that measured by the middle class and poor.
Visit several of your local retail establishments. Check labels for country of origin. No leader, council, senator, congressman or citizen in service of his or her country, should have ever allowed import goods to far exceed an equitable level. Common sense suggests no more than 28 to a maximum of 38 percent of that which we use. Not 85 percent manufactured in other countries. Today we suffer high unemployment and economic failure because of our lack of attention to protect our land and family. Now we as Americans fear the end of the year when we have to file out our tax forms only to pay the Government (city, state and federal) approximately forty percent of our income.
Whether well to do, average or working pay check to pay check, we are all owners, partners, and stockholders in this country. If we fail to use common sense, others worldwide will reap the rewards. Is losing that which our predecessors built, protected with life and limb and freedom important to you? Stop for one moment! If you are not already experiencing that which you never expected, imagine your family living with the consequences. Wondering where the next meal is coming from and forced to live under government control. We are teetering on the brink of no return. Prompt action is required to reverse this condition. This should include the restructuring of our educational, health care and how we pay taxes.
Our system of government, with all of its shortcomings, has outlasted every other political regime in spite of ourselves. The attempt to do what is right must be respected by a higher authority or we would have failed a long time ago. Our constitution was written by individuals honestly concerned with life, liberty, justice and the pursuit of happiness. Since then elected personnel added many laws. Some serve the good of mankind, while others were designed to benefit a limited number of citizens because of our tax laws.
More recently changes in policy and regulations or lack of enforcement, enabled irresponsible actions within the financial industry. Terrorism and military response as well as the unsupported debt of American citizens further escalated economic instability. “The American Dream” has been reduced to a struggle or for survival for millions of families because of business outsourcing due to our tax requirements.
Like other societies the world over, we have jeopardized the future of our country by failing to stress the importance of family values.
What comes first?
Power or the unit of which we are a part.
Early settlers opposing the original inhabitants of this land learned a valuable lesson. The tribe functioned as a democracy. Supporting the Nation meant protecting the land, community and family. This knowledge carried forward for generations. This allowed each state to govern themselves as a Federation. We worked as one Nation to provide for the good for all Americans.
The industrial revolution altered our concept of existence whereby the pioneer spirit slowly diminished. It changed from teaching our children basic fundamentals, such as: how to survive, make and repair things; to expecting finished goods, one might say, “on a silver platter“. In addition there is a lack of desire for the younger generation to protect and defend this Federation (Individual States joined together to defend the rights of the whole.)
Striving to produce a better life for our children reflects good sound logic. It also leads, however, to self indulgence as well as living beyond our means. Goods and services could be purchased without saving. This condition frequently results in divorce with offspring suffering the consequences. Working parents ultimately passed on the responsibility of teaching their children to public and private schools. To fill the shoes of a good, loving mother and/or father and function as a enthusiastic educator is close to impossible, which has now lead to the destruction of family values, traditions and a skilled labor force.
Instructors are historians, stimulating young minds to store and recall that which humans have discovered. The vast majority of teachers have little or no experience in physical implementation of that which they pass on to our children. Furthermore, it is difficult to avoid influencing students with their own opinions. This could be good or bad, but without firsthand experience more than likely it will produce marginal results. Without families passing on “Street smarts” as it may be referred to today (that is practical knowledge or an apprenticeship) decisions frequently lack foresight. In history, each generation passed on to the next the concept that a university degree was the key to “the American Dream”. The rethinking and restructuring of how our children are taught has changed their perception of values and traditions.
Today many of our children are part of the work force and a large portion searched for avenues of personal gain regardless of how it might affect their brethren. The essential foundation, upon which this country was built fell by the wayside. Creativity no longer meant using local talent and resources within our country. It could be purchased for less in other parts of the world. Contributing to this dilemma included corporate taxes, environmental protection issues and employee unions. This either forced local companies manufacturing similar products to follow suit or go out of business. Manufacturing currently represents a small percentage of our economy. Astonishing, yes! Therefore, who is responsible for overbearing unemployment and poor economic conditions?
SO, WHERE DOES THE RESPONSIBILITY START?
It is somebody else’s fault….right?
1.1. Who allowed political parties to place candidates obligated to satisfy favors or for financial support; often leaving us with a choice of selecting one we would otherwise not consider at all? Given this we have to elect and form a third political party made up of Citizens for a Better America ( www.cfabamerica.com )
1.2. Who made the filing fees for running for political office, out of reach for the average citizen? Cost for the 2008 election exceeded one billion dollars and forced many good leaders out of the arena of the government political system. In many cases the funding came from sources unknown to the American people. These funds could have been used in community assistance programs (CAP)
1.3. Who allows sponsors, corporations, unions, etc. to spend millions in support of candidates to secure a government position? To think large amounts of money is spent without a return on investment is ludicrous. Had we not had tax shelters or the IRS the funding would not have been provided and each candidate would have free access to the media.
1.4. Who permits salaries and benefits of federal, state and community to hold offices to exceed that of the average amount paid within private enterprise?
1.5. Who permits lobbyists, governments, associations, unions, corporations and more to influence our elected employees and sub offices to see things their way?
1.6. Who has the right to vote, yet fails to participate in selecting individuals with objectives that will honestly serve country and family?
You know who! “You the average American Citizen”
The Nation – country, state, county, community and finally the family is our responsibility, “yours and mine“. Failing to do our part, as owners, proprietors, of that which we support, pay for; will collapse our society and the freedom we cherish before our eyes. Has it already happened-look around- single parent home, and the increased number or our citizens incarcerated.
Let’s get things straight. Historically, our position has always been to react to problems after the fact. We must turn around and plan ahead for the future or other countries will do it for us. Is that what you want? Is it possible to reduce the Federal Government by thirty percent and turn responsibilities back to our Governors of each State?
Ok, let’s climb out of the first pit by reinstating lost jobs resulting in a strong economy. The second mountain to scale is to structure government to run as a cost conscious entity helping to save families. Only then can we expect a balanced budget, as well as maintain a positive cash flow position. Procedures can be found in Appendix A, Response commentary Appendix B, and a reasonably accurate example of import vs. U.S manufacture is covered in Appendix C and D
Bill to be submitted through Congress approved and implemented within months not years. The future of our nation is at stake. We cannot afford to allow personal motives to further jeopardize our country and family Operation “BRING IT HOME” to be established upon approval of the bill designating specific duty and minimum time allowed.
DEPARTMENT RESPONSIBILITY TIMING
And others as may be determined for maximum efficiency.
This plan will serve to influence all who read it to support our effort to reverse this devastating condition.
The plan enables all who wish to manufacture and distribute products produced here, on American soil, to benefit from this program. We are not limiting or prohibiting those currently marketing goods in the United States. They have the same opportunity to continue to sell imported goods or manufacture products within this country.
Action as described herein will reduce unemployment to a manageable level. Not a hopeful decade or decades. Our economy will then reinstate “The American Dream”.
Those who profit from keeping things as they are will use every means at their disposal to stop America from growing. Protecting their own position in opposition to “remains what’s best for our country“, workforce and families. The fact is that manufacturing only represents about fifteen (15%) of our economy. To say, we have digressed from the industrial capitol of the world to depending on everyone else to satisfy our requirements is unrealistic. We are responsible for this we should not try to pass on our responsibility to others. Our passive attitude enabled others to make decisions for us. Elected officials work for us the American citizen. To protect the family involves, paying attention to the fine print to defend the principles upon which this country was founded. Enforce that which we know to be constitutionally correct.
As citizens, owners of this great and beautiful land we must pull together and serve as directors instead of followers. To be led, told what we want to hear and act as if we were peasants, accepting the consequences, should be an insult to our intelligence. Your thoughts and action are necessary.
As we all know, situations change on a daily basis, therefore some of the stated information and dates may already have changed. The basic principles will apply regardless of these changes.

PROCEDURE “BRING JOBS HOME: MADE IN AMERICA”
1.A. Categorize a list of all non-essential merchandise imported into the United States. Data to include monthly/annual volume, type, style, model, numbers, etc. Necessary ingredients not available or cannot be sourced within our country without depleting raw material supplies are excluded. It must be understood Homeland Security must not be compromised by depending on foreign sources.
1.B. Establish the cost of freight from port of origin to U.S. port/s of destination. This is to include, import duty if any, customs brokerage, port and transfer expenses. Also establish the average inland freight expense to service all points throughout the U.S.
1.C. Compile cost of U.S. manufacture data from within our own factories…Minimum and maximum levels based on volume, materials, location, labor, etc. Establish cost plus reasonable marketing and profit margin figures. Data chief financial officers prepare for any new or existing business daily.
1.D. Determine the difference between import and U.S. manufacture. Impose an excise tax equivalent to the difference. The assessed amount per item and set aside in an entitlement account. The money to be used as interest free long term loans to responsible individuals or registered U.S. companies to manufacture nonessential goods covered by the fund. Efficiently manufacturing and labor standards established by industry, to be maintained. Project companies are also to be free of corporate taxes for a three year period of time.
1.E. Publish data and accept proposals for manufacturing. Loans to be determined by the extent of unemployment per state. This will induce states, counties and cities to further support manufacturing with incentives. Should available financing exceed that used within a reasonable period of time, other states in order of unemployment level may request excess funds for financing.
1.F. All data in items (A through D) are readily available from private and Government sources. A reasonably accurate example of import vs. U.S. manufacture is covered in Appendix C and D.
1.G. The import of nonessential goods is expected to continue, regardless of U.S. Manufacture. That is unless the foreign supplier capitalizes on the opportunity by operating a registered U.S. company on American soil. The excise tax revenue to be used only as specified to enhance U.S. manufacturing for as long as unemployment exists. Surplus revenue, if any, to be used in order of importance for: education, health care and social security.
PROJECT “BRING JOBS HOME: MADE IN AMERICA”
1.1. Post war Germany and Japan produced many low cost non essential items. Generally inexpensive duplicates of items sold within the United States. Quality was something left to be desired. As money started pouring in, quality improved, eventually surpassing that of U.S. manufactured products.
1.2. You have to plant the seed before one can smell the roses.
1.3. Essential items:
Transportation, autos, trucks, aircraft, ships. etc.
Clothing and shoes, etc.
A review of the import registrar will enable exclusion of essential materials.
1.4. The percentage of funding available per state is dependent upon the extent of unemployment.
1.5. The “equal opportunity manufacturing program” will give the affluent a reason to invest in American land based enterprise. It will also generate renewed interest in trading stock.
1.6. All candidates for congress and the president to be required to have at least five (5) years management experience within private enterprise. The equivalent in military leadership is acceptable.
1.7. All essential goods have escalated many times in retail pricing. Non essential products have increased only slightly. This demonstrates the focus of labor Unions or their effect on private enterprise.
1.8. Question? What authority do we have on a direct basis to eliminate members of congress and the senate?
NON ESSENTIAL PRODUCT IMPORT VS MANUFACTURE
The consumer purchase cost is approximately 26 per cent more for the U.S. manufactured vs. the imported product. The excise tax for this one item produces more than one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) per month. The amount of money generated by this and thousands of other products will more than provide sufficient financing of enable financing of manufacturing on American Soil Of the consumer purchase price approximately 18.% is used to support labor and associated taxes.
Approximately 21.5% of the selling price of one item is the overhead, circulated throughout the community including profit and corporate taxes. Materials used in the manufacture of this one item exceed more than six million dollars ($6,000,000) annually. All of which may be could sourced within the United States. Money re-circulated within our country multiplies jobs, something has to be done about the overwhelming government debt. Made in the U.S.A. further reduces our trade deficit. This is the first solid “shovel ready” step.
NON ESSENTIAL PRODUCT COST AND SALE COMPARISON IMPORT VS U.S. MANUFACTURE
The difference between import and U.S. manufacture ranges between eighteen to twenty eight percent. It is understood an increase in the cost of import goods are expected. This will narrow the differential as political, transportation and/or devaluating currency occurs.
