How to Defund Unconstitutional Government Programs
Defund the police has become the rallying cry of the Left. The real truth is⏤the Left wants the police. They just want to abolish local police forces in 19,500 towns and incorporated villages in the United States that they can’t control. According to Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA, they want a national police force that they can control. Gestapo anyone? Or do you prefer the KGB?
Since “defund” is a popular slogan of the Left, let’s use it to the advantage of Constitutional Conservatives. Let’s make our own “defund” demands under the name of the United States Constitution. We need to copy the slogans and the methods the Marxist left are using to pit American against American. Allow me to share a few examples that need immediate attention.
1. Defund Schools
Defund public schools and public school boards. These institutions are now pushing Critical Race Theory and other anti-American ideologies on our students. They are incompetent when it comes to teaching reading, writing, arithmetic, science, and history. In effect, we pay public schools to make our children ignorant instead of educated. Cut the property taxes that fund schools and refund the money to the taxpayers.
Instead of public schools, fund private schools, homeschooling co-ops, and charter schools. None of these come under the control of school boards, teacher unions, or the Federal Department of Education. They can teach the truth without being penalized by Federal Stasi Agents.
2. Defund Public Universities and Colleges
These institutions of higher propaganda manufacture Socialist school teachers and community organizers. The teachers then teach our children that America is racist and evil. The community organizers divide citizens into grievance groups which then press for special privileges. The primary mission of public universities and colleges is job creation for Marxist professors and administrators. The ratio of administrative staff to teaching staff is top-heavy. Also, defund the federal guarantees of student loans. These loans come with federal strings attached, which make even private schools and colleges de facto government-funded and controlled propaganda machines.
Instead, please encourage students to pursue independent certification in the job skill of their choice. For example, there are private certification tests for building contractors and civil engineers. There are certification prep courses you can take which prepare you for the exams. There are flight schools that prepare you to take a pilot’s test. These professional certification tests are based on the real-world knowledge and skills required to do the job. Becoming an electrician requires passing a certification exam.
There is no “politically correct” way to fly an airplane. The laws of aerodynamics do not conform to “social justice.” You either learn the piloting skills, or you don’t. Knowing Critical Race Theory will not enable you to navigate a ship across the ocean. There is no “equity of outcome” in wiring a building for electricity. The electrical outlets are either grounded properly, or they will give you a potentially lethal electric shock when you plug in a lamp. Electricity will kill you, and it will kill you whether your life is black, blue, brown, yellow, or white.
3. Defund Food Stamps / Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
Although this federally funded program says it aims to help needy families “move towards self-sufficiency,” in fact, it functions as a federal drug pusher. Once you are hooked on the “drug” of free food, it is too easy to keep getting free food from the government instead of getting a job and paying for your own.
From there, it is easy to convince you that free food is a “fundamental human right” that you are entitled to. Tell a corn kernel that it is obligated to plant itself, water itself, fertilize itself, harvest itself, package itself, and deliver itself to your supermarket shelf where you get it for free with your SNAP Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card, which works like a debit card. In reality, human beings plant the corn, water the corn, fertilize the corn, harvest the corn, can the corn, and deliver the canned corn to your supermarket shelf. These human beings don’t work for free. So the corn is not free. Someone else paid for your “free food.” The taxpayers who work for a living paid for the “free” food.
Instead of the taxpayer-funded SNAP, there are thousands of privately funded food banks, faith-based food kitchens, and food pantries across America. These are locally funded through voluntary donations and locally controlled. Since their staff actually see and interact with those in need, they are able to provide for the truly needy yet recognize con artists and malingerers taking advantage of the charity of others.
The upside of privately funded food banks is that volunteers can identify and cut off the con artists so that the con-men and con-women have to go back to work to earn money to buy food. That is the true “move toward self-sufficiency.”
Defund Unconstitutional Government Programs. Less Government = More Freedom
These are just a few examples of how Constitutional Conservatives can use the “defund” movement to move the country back in the direction of constitutionally limited government. There is nothing in the Constitution about government-funded elementary schools, government-funded universities, and government-funded free food. Defund them all.
Defunding these programs means more taxpayer money stays in the pockets of the taxpayers who’ve earned it.
Defunding these programs means more private entrepreneurs will fill the need for schools, universities, and job skills training and certification.
Defunding these programs means local groups, faith-based and secular, will feed the needy with voluntary donations and let the able-bodied get back to work.
Defund all government agencies not enumerated in the Constitution. Call your elected representatives and demand they get started today to restore the U.S. Constitution.
