A Solution For Ossification of Stiff JointsOpinion October 28, 2019
One must wonder why government bureaucrats, appointed and elected, don’t fear the electorate
or more importantly, the American people. It’s because they are rarely challenged for their
perfidies, are able to employ the slow tactics of dragging their feet on important issues until the
electorate forgets about ‘em and, if those tactics fail, sic the enforcement arm of government to
harass, impede or even deny American challengers their individual rights, often without due
process, including imprisoning or murdering them. Keep in mind Ruby Ridge and Waco.
If the Federal Government is too big as it incubates new laws in the swamp to oppress the
citizens, then it’s past time that citizens remind their elected legislatures that they are servants
of the people, not the other way around, and that the true roadmap for citizen happiness lies in
the Constitution of the United States, not in the Communist Manifesto or the Democrat party.
Bureaucrats are not elected! Responsibility for making laws, painful as some may be, lies with
the Congress not unelected Deep State job holders no one hears about until it’s too late. The
question then becomes, what to do with the massive stiff bureaucracy running our government?
One department of government, the DOD, already knows the answer. It rotates, transfers or
PCS’s, however you want to call it, its military and some civilian members every two or three
years and that especially includes the officer corps all the way to the top. For Generals and
Admirals to move, promotions are their anticipated reward.
I just read that one department of 2300 workers in the DC Swamp, have threatened to quit
enmasse if their agency, as is proposed, is moved the seven miles away the department wants.
What a gift to the American taxpayers that would be. Do it! Also, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tn)
signed on to a bill proposed by Sen. Josh Hawley, (R-Mo), the “Helping Infrastructure Restore
the Economy” (HIRE act), that proposes breaking up the DC Swamp and spreading the wealth
around to other areas of the nation. Here are their proposed changes:
1 Department of Agriculture — Missouri
2 Department of Commerce –Pennsylvania
3 Department of Education –Tennessee
4 Department of Energy — Kentucky
5 Health and Human Services –Indiana
6 Housing and Urban Development — Ohio
7 Department of Interior — New Mexico
8 Department of Labor — West Virginia
9 Department of Transportation — Michigan
10 Veterans Affairs — South Carolina
There will be hell to pay but, if government can’t move its civilian employees like the DOD does,
then move the agencies. What a splendid idea. Or, short of that, perhaps every two or three
years, employees in one agency would be transferred into another agency whose mission is
totally opposite of their previous assignment. This would specifically include those at the SES
level. What’s SES you ask? Its civilian executives operating their agencies as civilian Generals,
so to speak. For the others of course, pay grades would stay the same. Think of it as exercising
ones elbows, knees and wrist joints to keep them limber. If they are not moved from time to
time, they become stiff and ossified, just like government.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
