Rule of Law: nothing shows this more starkly than Congress' failure to deport illegal immigrants. It's been exacerbated by President Obama making an EASILY DEFEATED end-run on immigration. Easy because ICE agents and Justice Dept employees need only hear "this is the law...fail to enforce it and lose your paycheck". The Resistance members want all immigration to be legal, and swiftly processed. Most of us want MORE immigration. But we Americans should CHOOSE who enters our nation. Yes, we can deport 90% of all illegals using Greyhound, school buses and transport ships in one summer.
Better opportunities for Children: The Resistance pushes for every child to have choice in schools, and a voucher that gives parents the power to take their child to the school that is best. This not only elevates every child (far more than "Common Core") it makes schools better and causes bad schools to die within 3 years ("3-and-out" is bad for Tom Brady, but very good for children!). Some Resistance Members would like to give children an equal VOTE, held in proxy by one parent until the child reaches majority age.
Good Careers for Millennials:The Resistance will end the 29-hour rule that keeps many of you from being fully employed, and keeps you from truly climbing a career ladder. The Resistance will end the 49 employee distinction that keeps many of you from being hired by mid-sized companies. And once hired, The Resistance seeks to tax you at 0%. Taxing spending and wealth is far fairer. Those age 20 - 35 who are not yet wealthy will keep ALL of what they earn.
Sensibly helping the poor, at last: The Resistance Members recognize that after $3 trillion has been spent in Federal Welfare, the condition of city housing, education, and family life has barely improved. Resistance Members running Congress means better help for the poor, because private charities are FAR more responsive than blunt government bureaucrats.
Helping the elderly: The Resistance will help poor-yet-deserving elderly far more than the current system, particularly Veterans, who will have a choice in hospitals and clinics, and not be tied to the VA or suffer long delays in care.
Ending Crony Capitalism: The Resistance members in Congress take an axe to corporate welfare. Indeed, for most of us, it's the first target. Wall Street bankers perform valuable functions, but they don't need government help.
Better opportunities for African Americans: The Resistance members will repeal Davis-Bacon, and make Social Security (the most regressive tax on Blacks) optional. We will deport the illegal immigrants who take jobs away from deserving African Americans. Resistance Members will give choice in schools wherever possible. The most vile racists right now couldn't be more pleased with the miserable public education most urban Blacks receive.
Ending the drug war: Your incumbent did NOTHING to censure those behind "fast-and-furious". Your incumbent did nothing to stop SWAT raids on innocent motel owners or restaurant owners whose property is seized. The Resistance will stop the war against non-violent drug offenders. The Resistance will de-fang SWAT teams that steal innocents' property and scare citizens in night-time raids.
Ending EPA oppression: The Resistance members give each American a property right in their air and water; The Resistance will use government where private property rights cannot be enforced, but that will become rarer and rarer.
Supporting women's rights:The Resistance members recognize the value of women working in the home. We promote their credentials when they return to the workplace. We support start-up businesses, which are now launched by women about as frequently as by men.
Getting choice in Health Care: Resistance Members are committed to applying the beauty of the Free Market to health insurance and health care. Once real defenders of freedom become a majority in Congress, Obamacare is toast. Until then, Resistance members will give weekly illuminations about the destructiveness of ACA and the beauty of free market health care. Literally, if it's Tuesday, expect a "Resistance Riposte" to Obamacare.
Ending Teacher Union Tyranny: The Resistance elevates good teachers to higher salaries and benefits. Choice in education means good teachers become more in demand, and ditching rigid union contracts allows teachers to be paid more. Bad teachers re-train or get fired.
Elevating industrial workers: The Resistance offers industrial workers more benefits to safety and higher wages than the tenuous system you now have. We unburden you and your employers, and end silly regulations that stifle your growth.
Ending Bureaucratic abuse: Your incumbent has not been willing or able to fire a single promoter of the VA scandal, the IRS scandal, Fast-and-Furious, or the porn-watching EPA bureaucrats. Good conservatives have been victimized by ALL FOUR agencies, and your Congressman has stood by, impotent and/or not-really-concerned.
Greatly reducing bureaucracy: if you believe in republicanism, you can't abide by bureaucrats controlling your rights. The Resistance members are committed to phasing out or ripping out EVERY page of the monstrosity called the Code of Federal Regulations. Laws are to be VOTED upon, not foisted upon us.
or just plain
Freedom: The Resistance mantra is to keep expanding your freedom. Big industry and Big governments will lose their power, while individuals can regain theirs.
