To Save America, We Must Abolish the United States




Current Issues

"The Powers that Be" should
  • terminate attempts to "reconstruct" Iraq using military imperialism and occupation
  • end all sanctions

Americans should

  • impeach any government official who plans an aggressive war
  • flood Iraq with needed medical and humanitarian aid, to undo the damage done during the eariler gulf war and the recent destruction
  • flood Iraq with high-quality, low-cost goods and services needed by the people of Iraq, as a vivid demonstration of the prosperity that results from "Liberty under God."
  • flood Iraq with the ideas of liberty; become once again "a city on a hill."

Al-queda is not the first group of terrorists Americans have had to deal with. President Thomas Jefferson dealt with terrorists during his administration. Those terrorists were called "Indians." Not all Americans treated all Indians in a consistently Christian manner, and not all Indians were terrorists, but many Indians attacked not only American settlers, but other Indians as well. In 1779, Jefferson explained to Sir Guy Carleton, the Governor of Canada:
"The known rule of warfare of the Indian Savages is an indiscriminate butchery of men, women and children."

Not all religions are equal. Any religion which kills innocent people is a "false religion," to use the words of James Madison.

Jefferson and America's Founding Fathers knew how to deal with terrorists from false religions. Jefferson compiled a collection of his favorite teachings of Jesus Christ in order to civilize the Indians. Congress appropriated funds to various missionary agencies to Christianize the heathen. This was good foreign policy.

We should not support coercing taxpayers into funding missionary agencies, but the direction of America's Founding Fathers is a direction we must follow today.

The Bush administration initially estimated that the cost to taxpayers of rebuilding Iraq after a U.S. invasion would be only $1.7 billion. After the postwar costs to U.S. taxpayers soared over $100 billion, the Bush team "fixed" the problem by removing all traces of the earlier low estimate from government web pages.
—James Bovard, "Bush's Top Ten Farces"

The cost of our war against Iraq is in the neighborhood of $300 Billion. What would Thomas Jefferson and America's Founding Fathers have done with 300 billion dollars (besides return it to taxpayers)?

With 30% less ($200 billion) they could recruit a million Christian Capitalist missionaries. They could spend $10,000 training each of these missionaries in the principles of "Liberty under God": the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and Capitalism. Missionaries would also learn Iraqi culture and language.

1,000,000 number of missionaries
$10,000 training per missionary (constitution, capitalism, Iraqi culture)
$10,000,000,000 educational expenses

Jefferson would recommend paying these missionaries so that they could devote their full efforts to intensive study to gain these essential compentencies.

1,000,000 number of missionaries
$40,000 training stipend
$40,000,000,000 wages (and expect disciplined learning)

These missionaries would then be qualified to impart the principles of "Liberty under God" to the people of Iraq, and would be paid for one year of service, and would be expected to raise private support for a second year.

1,000,000 missionaries
$50,000 stipend for one year
$50,000,000,000 wages

Each missionary would be given $100,000 to "bribe" Iraqi civilians into attending classes on Christianity, capitalism and constitutional government. This "bribe" would represent an extraordinary amount of start-up capital for small Iraqi businesses. Such businesses would be allowed tariff-free trade policies with the U.S. These businesses would raise the standard of living for Iraqis and put a human face on Americans.

1,000,000 missionaries
$100,000 start-up capital
$100,000,000,000 reconstruction of Iraq

Total cost: $200 billion, same as the war. But this program would truly create a New America in Iraq. Millions of Iraqi civilians would learn the principles of "Liberty under God," the principles that made America the greatest and most admired nation in the history of the world. Imagine the effect this would have in the Middle East.

Instead, both Republicans and Democrats approved using $200 Billion dollars of your money to systematically convert one Iraqi neighborhood after another into rubble and dust, killing thousands of innocent Iraqi non-combatants in the process, and angering adherents of false religions around the world.

Saddam Hussein was a dictator, but he was also more secular than Muslim, and Christians had freedom in Iraq, which is now being lost in Bush’s Global War on Christians.

The other Iraq war - The Washington Times: Commentary - March 29, 2005

America missed her opportunity to "reconstruct Iraq."

"Liberty under God" is the only principle that will bring international peace.

Saddam Hussein was put in power by the United States.

The U.S. Federal Government has had a continued relationship with Saddam Hussein since the 1950's. As we pointed out in our Foreign Affairs page, America's Founding Fathers did not believe in this kind of perpetual foreign intervention:

The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations to have with them as little political connection as possible."
— Washington, Farewell Address (1796) [Washington’s emphasis]

I deem [one of] the essential principles of our government, and consequently [one] which ought to shape its administration,…peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none.
— Jefferson, First Inaugural Address (1801) 

The federal government wants credit for "fixing" the problems in Iraq, when those problems were created by the federal government in the first place. We must get the federal government out of the "entangling alliance" business.

  • When War Gets Personal
    An insight into President Bush's motivation may have been provided by the President himself during a fundraising speech. He pointed out that Saddam Hussein "is a guy who tried to kill my dad at one time."

Impeachable Offenses

Article II Sec. 4 of the Constitution states that: "The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors." International Law Professor Francis A. Boyle of the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign says that waging a war of aggression is a crime under the Nuremberg Charter, Judgment and Principles. "It's very clear," he adds, "if you read all the press reports, they are going to devastate Baghdad, a metropolitan area of 5 million people. The Nuremberg Charter clearly says the wanton devastation of a city is a Nuremberg war crime."

"We sentenced Nazi leaders to death for waging a war of aggression."
