The road back is to get in place a Congress that can start reversing legislation, de-funding departments, and terminating programs. Legislators that come to Washington should be validated for every law they RESCIND rather than PASS. Ron Paul is your model. He votes for very few bills. He never expands the government. Almost all the other congressmen expand the government. These congressmen are violating their oaths of office to serve the Constitution and its doctrine of limited government. WE THE PEOPLE must not continue to allow these violations. These violations are grounds upon which we must continue to vote out incumbents.

Take the first step. Continue to vote out every incumbent UNTIL a congress arrives that is willing to enact term limits. That's the litmus test. If we can't accomplish this simple task, we will NEVER be able to accomplish any of the other tasks.

A congressman who won't limit his term, will not limit the government.(2)

(1) But when the poor get tax refunds, they often must use these refunds to pay for their state and local school and property taxes. We are way over taxed as a nation. We have a tax revolt 200 years ago when taxes were only a fraction of what they are today. Why is everyone so scared? They are scared to revolt because they know we now live in a police state.
