The Law of the Lord is Perfect in every way. A country is blessed when its leaders follow God’s Law.

The President elect has promised in his words, “To drain the swamp.” Perhaps a better analogy would be to drain and dismantle the cesspool. This is a daunting and enormous task which begins with the careful selection of the right people over seeing each department in the Executive branch.

He needs someone to take hold of the vipers den known as the IRS and rid it of those who were involved in persecuting organizations that stood for the government our Founders established. He must also cull those snakes who were part of Obama’s weaponization of the IRS as the scourge of every Obama opponent. That might take out more than half of that agency, and it would be best that no one replaces those empty seats. The next bold step for the new Commissioner would be to return to the Constitutional standard which completely prohibits capitation taxes on citizens. That prohibition is contained in Article One Section nine clause four, and don’t believe the lie that the Sixteenth Amendment altered that prohibition as the Supreme Court itself just after the Amendment ruled that the Amendment gave no new taxing powers to the Federal government – meaning the prohibition on capitation taxes still stands to this day. That would mean the IRS could only tax corporations and resident aliens, legal aliens and illegal aliens. The individual’s fair share of the Federal Tax bill is zero. Wouldn’t that make April 15th and wonderful day, a day we could celebrate the restoration of Constitutional taxation in America?

Another Department that is a rat’s nest is the Department of Education. It has no Constitutional authority and therefore should be abolished. I am encouraged to see the President elect has chosen one who, as her critics say, has been working hard “in an effort to dismantle public education in Michigan.” I pray that there will be success at dismantling the Federal Department of Education and once and for all breaking the monopoly on education that has existed America since the 1850’s. Perhaps the Eduction Secretary, while weaning States from the teat of the Federal Department of Education, could bring an end to the education monopoly. The Secretary could bind those States who receive Federal Education dollars to legislatively breaking the link between property taxes and education such that only those who choose to use the Government run system pay for the Government run system. Every one else, would be set free from the existing monopoly. What an idea. That would be a true service to the parents of America who want to actually choose where their family’s education dollars go. Then once the monopoly is broken, the tap of Federal education money must be sealed forever and that illegal organization known as the Federal Department of Education closed forever.

There is a long list of the other alphabet soup agencies and departments that need to receive similar treatment, things like the completely unconstitutional EPA, BATFE, Department of Energy, National Labor Relations Board, and how about the Department of Homeland Security and Agriculture and Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, Interior and on the list goes. Just consider the A’s in the list of unconstitutional Agencies – 57 in the A’s alone:

• Administration for Children and Families (ACF)

• Administration for Native Americans

• Administration on Aging (AoA)

• Administration on Developmental Disabilities

• Administrative Committee of the Federal Register

And that is just the A’s, it is a much longer list before you reach the W’s with Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars being the last. There are all unconstitutional, they should all be abolished. There is a whole lot of undoing to be done by the new Administration.

And would to God that Washington D.C. would obey the command of Scripture in Ephesians 4:28, “Let him that stole, steal no longer.” Every expenditure of funds by the Federal Government not directly authorized by the Compact We The People made in forming that government, which is our Constitution, is not simply an illegal expenditure, it is actually theft; the taxation is theft and the expenditure is theft. So “Let him that stole, steal no longer.”

What would it take to achieve that kind of dramatic change in America? A total change of heart on the part of Americans – a return to our Founders understanding that There is a Creator God, the God of the Bible, that our Rights come from Him alone and that the sole purpose of human civil government is to secure those God given rights, nothing else.

This reminds me of what Jesus taught in Matthew 9:17:

“Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.”

New wine needs new wine skins.
