MY FANTASY

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY MAY 18, 2020

         WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN IF MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WERE LIMITED IN THEIR TERMS, LIMITED IN THEIR SPENDING, LIMITED IN THEIR SALARIES IF THEY DON’T SHOW UP FOR WORK, AND LIMITED IN THEIR PENSIONS?

         NONE OF THIS WILL HAPPEN, OF COURSE, BECAUSE CONGRESS WOULD HAVE TO AUTHORIZE IT, BUT IT’S FUN TO IMAGINE.

         MORE SCALED-DOWN GOVERNMENT LEADING TO MORE EFFICIENT GOVERNMENT THE WAY THE FOUNDERS CREATED IT. THE SUPREME COURT FORCED TO RETURN TO CONSTITUTIONAL BOUNDARIES. UNNECESSARY COMMITTEES AND SUBCOMMITTEES ELIMINATED. PARTISAN INVESTIGATIONS LIMITED.

         OUR GOVERNMENT IS BROKEN NOT ONLY BECAUSE OF US, BUT BECAUSE OF CAREER POLITICIANS WHO BROKE IT. WE HAVE SOME RESPONSIBILITY BECAUSE WE VOTE THEM IN. THE COUNTRY IS DIVIDED AND SO CONGRESS IS, TOO.

         I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A COMMISSION DECIDING WHICH AGENCIES, PROGRAMS AND POLICIES WORK ACCORDING TO AN OBJECTIVE STANDARD AND WHICH DON’T. GET RID OF ONES THAT DON’T AND KEEP ONES THAT DO.

         THAT IS AS LIKELY TO HAPPEN AS TERM LIMITS BECAUSE OUR CORRUPT CONGRESS AND WORSE MEDIA WON’T LET IT. I’M CAL THOMAS.
