“I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”
-- James Madison, father of the U.S. Constitution
2016 America's Party presidential candidate
Where I live we have a weed that is, I think, technically, known as ground ivy. But we call it Creeping Charlie.
The thing about Creeping Charlie is that, left unchecked, it takes over and chokes out everything else. And I do mean everything. The stuff is prolific.
Unconstitutional spending is exactly like Creeping Charlie. Once it gets a foothold, look out.
Unless we act swiftly and thoroughly to restore respect for the limits placed on government by our Constitution, in just a couple of years, the entire budget of the United States government is going to be spent on unconstitutional so-called "entitlement" programs and interest on the debt. That's right, THE WHOLE BUDGET. This, my friends, is unsupportable and unsustainable.
As a gardener, I can tell you, you have to be merciless to Creeping Charlie. You can't be lax about leaving even one tiny root of the stuff in the ground. Because if you are lax, the next time you turn around, the stuff will have taken over everything again.
My two main opponents come November, Clinton and Trump, brazenly lie to you and tell you that they're going to give you a lush, green, fruitful garden while not laying one finger on any of the Creeping Charlie. Which is, of course, pure nonsense.
Their deceptive course can only lead us to economic ruin.
Please, join with us to act, before it is too late.
