A Challenge to Republican Candidates

Current mood: amused, cynical

This is a challenge for all of those Republican candidates who like to portray themselves as supporting free markets, fiscal restraint, individual rights and Constitutionally-limited government.

For legislative-branch candidates
(U.S. Congress, the Roundhouse, County Commission)

Name TEN (10) EXISTING instances of spending that you want to eliminate outright from the budget that you’ll have some say over, should you be elected.

Name TEN (10) EXISTING regulations over the private sector that you will sponsor legislation to repeal, should you be elected to office.

Name TEN (10) EXISTING agencies that you will seek to defund and shut down, should you be elected.

For executive-branch candidates
(President, etc.)

Name TEN (10) EXISTING instances of spending that you want to eliminate outright from the budget that you’ll have some say over, should you be elected.

Name TEN (10) EXISTING regulations over the private sector that you WILL push your corresponding legislative branch to repeal, should you be elected to office.

Name TEN (10) EXISTING executive-branch actions over the private sector that you WILL FULLY REVOKE, should you be elected to office.

Name TEN (10) EXISTING agencies that you will seek to defund and shut down, should you be elected.

My intent here? Simple – Republicans generally like to spin themselves as being the fiscally-restrained “adults” in the poliitcal arena, as the people who will respect your Constitutionally-guaranteed individual rights and the free market. Then once elected, they govern like moderate Democrats, sponsoring “emergency” legislation for public buildings to be built in five to ten years, appropriating 300K for a study to determine whether it’s safe or unsafe to drive while drowsy, stuff like that. So let’s get them on the record for some specifics where their “free-market” rhetoric is concerned.
