The Constitution provides no role for the Federal government when it comes to job creation. Of course jobs are created when the government hires people to carry out every aspect of the constitutional purpose. The Federal government has plenty of people already on the payroll to do that important work. Unfortunately, there are hundreds of thousands—millions—of people now employed by the Federal government doing unconstitutional jobs. That must be addressed and corrected beginning in 2013. It will take years to correct but let us begin.
The Federal government must do two things immediately. One is ending the web of rules and regulations that stifle our domestic petroleum production. It will be addressed in a separate post. The other, like the first, must be ending the suffocating regulations and taxes on all of America’s entrepreneurs. It must be done quickly. There is no place on earth that can match job creation in a free America. 2012 Liberty Listers will be passionate about getting the Federal government out of the way and passionate about the morality of free enterprise.
