About the author: Wes Walker

Clashdaily's Religion Editor, Wes Walker, believes that freedom, faith, family, and the flag need more than to be simply cherished. They need to be understood, articulated, defended and promoted, not just by a few voices in prominent places, but by every man or woman who truly prizes them. In fact, the reason he wrote "Blueprint For a Government that Doesn't Suck" was so that every "ordinary Joe" will be able to do just that... and do it with confidence.

    The main reason governments don’t solve problems is because they are too busy CREATING problems. They become entranced with becoming communistic and adopt the notion that they, the people in government control, absolutely MUST help all of the people, when the problems are far less. But to be able to CONTROL ALL of the people they must communize the entire country and make all of the people think that they are all alike. This is biggest mistake that communist leaders make. They ignore the fact that God created all creatures and He created them in millions of different looks and ways of doing their daily activities. Communism, often called socialism, has never been a successful way of living; it just doesn’t work. And the key word there is ‘WORk’. Those who want to work can never live with those who do not want to work. Obama’s plan to strip the rich and “redistribute” the money to the poor will just make the indolent that much less inclined to do any work. The workers will eventually beat down the lazy lay-abouts and their so-called leaders. Communism just does NOT work, in theory or in fact.

    My exact thoughts, why doesn’t the govt. ever ever
    solve anything? They skip around and nothing is
    accomplished. You do one thing at a time and do it right.
    Disgusting how congress etc. get paid soooo much and
    do nothing but sit on their tails. Most are too old anyway
    and don’t give a D—

    Today’s Constitutional Republic doesn’t solve problems because the framers failed to expressly establish the Constitution upon Yahweh’s immutable morality as found in His commandments, statutes, and judgments. It’s for this same reason that every problem we’re facing today (infanticide, sodomy, the economy, etc., etc., etc.) can be traced back to this moral failure of the framers.

    The “government” and politicians from both sides do not solve problems because “problems” are political weapons. If you solve them, they lose talking points to denegrate the opposition. As the article pointed out “problems” aslo create the ability to create a huge infrastructure that employs those that support one side or the other, supposedly trying to solve the problem. It boils down to money and politics, not the best interest of the public.

    “The first possibility is that government has a busted Midas touch. Everything they touch turns to crud, and costs a lot of gold.”
    Perfect.

    Believe me, if you had been around government for 40 years like me you would know. Government is run by crooks and thugs, staffed by loafers and morons, and demanded by slugs and degenerates.

    How can anything outside of Gods standard work?

    I’m still choking on that first statement? Patience? Socialism has never worked Todd and it won’t work for Obama and America either. “Angry teabaggers” … really. Bitter much Todd? Tell me, how is it these “angry salad tossers” blocked the chosen one from accomplishing his eutopia during those first two years when the Democrats owned both houses of Congress? One more thing, if facts mean anything to you Todd, no President in modern history has presided over a greater decline in the conditions for poor people then your popgun messiah. No one.
