These are simply some “First Thoughts” and the NCCPA will forever remain flexible
Abortion: Abortion is wrong, it is a sin, and should be discouraged. However, we are all sinners – no one is perfect, and it should be left up to the States to determine what type of Abortion Laws they would like to have rule in their State. Federal Government money should never be used to help finance abortion and it is permissible to allow the States to put certain restrictions on abortion, such as: 1) Requiring a minor to have the permission of a parent in order to obtain an abortion. 2) Requiring a 72 hour waiting period, unless the health of the mother is at risk. 3) Limiting abortions to pregnancies that are in the first or second trimester only. 4) Prohibiting “partial-birth” abortions. 5) Requiring abortion clinics to donate a small percentage of their profits to abortion alternative groups. 6) Creating a registry of couples desiring to adopt a baby and of mothers with unwanted pregnancies in an effort to save lives in stead of aborting them. 7) Prohibiting a State from an all-out ban on abortions.
Income Taxes: Income Taxes should be abolished. For over 100 years our Country survived quite well with no Income Tax. It wasn’t until the 1900’s that the first Income Tax was put into effect. Income taxes inhibit personal ambition and penalize people for hard work. In stead we will first, massively cut our current federal budget. Second, we will be re-instituting reasonable import taxes on all foreign goods being sold in America. This will not only help raise money to run the federal government, it will also attempt to start leveling the playing field for American manufacturers. Free trade is BS because everybody else is subsidizing or taxing in one way or another. “Free Trade” has led to the loss of millions and millions of American manufacturing jobs. Fair Trade, on the other hand, will level the playing field and help American businesses be competitive in the world market.
National Defense: Get out of the over 100 treatise we are entangled in around the world. Send Germany and Japan a bill for all of the Defense costs to protect those countries for the past fifty years. Pull all our troops out of Europe and Japan and place them on the Mexican and Canadian borders. Leave a few small “staging” areas across the globe that we could use in the case of a real, international emergency incident, perhaps two or three per continent. Invest heavily in research and development for future weapons and space defense. Maintain and improve our Navy, Air Force, Army, Marines and Coast Guard. Consider making 1-2 years of service mandatory for all 18-20 year olds, men and women. In exchange for the service, give them money for college or trade schools.
Welfare: Welfare shall be limited to only those willing to participate in job training programs or those with a physical or mental disability that prevents them from working. People on welfare will be given up to one year, and one year only, to participate in free job training program(s) and get a job. After the one year is up, no more welfare. Corporations, in stead of being taxed to death, will be required to contribute to job training and job creation programs.
Promote Limited Government: Budget Cuts: The following Federal Bureaucracies will either be eliminated entirely, or in the alternative, severely diminished. 1) The Department of Education (leave education up to the States, it is a State responsibility); 2) The Environmental Protection Agency (leave it up to the States, it is a State responsibility); 3) The Department of Housing and Urban Development (A State issue); 4) The Department of Agriculture; 5) The Department of Labor; 6) Department of Commerce; 7) Department of Transportation; 8) Cut all funding to the United Nations, let them pay themselves, no more free ride on our backs; 9) Severely limit or completely abolish numerous Administrations and Agencies. Cut, cut, cut!
Gun Control: Make it a requirement that all households in America have at least one handgun and one long gun and everyone in the house is trained on how to safely use them. Permit Concealed Carry by law-abiding citizens in every state and eliminate all “Gun Bans.” Have the federal government help low income people to purchase a handgun for their self defense and learn how to use it safely (everyone gets a 10 hour gun safety and use course free of charge)(paid for by arms manufacturers and not paid for by the federal government). Ban fully automatic machine guns and prohibit convicted felons and the mentally defective from possessing firearms. After 10 years a convicted felon can petition for possession of a firearm. Every child by age 14 shall be trained and proficient in the use of a .22 caliber pistol and rifle. Every citizen by age 18 shall be proficient in the use of at least a 9mm/38 caliber pistols, a 30 caliber rifle, and at least a 20 gauge shotgun. Felons in possession of an illegal firearm and any criminal who uses a firearm to commit a crime will receive an additional penalty, on top of whatever else they get, of an additional 20 years in prison.
Bailouts: No more bailouts of failing companies. Let the free market run its course.
Intelligent Design: Permit schools to teach the theory of intelligent design along with the theory of evolution in our schools.
Immigration: Seal our borders. Build a wall or a fence or whatever is necessary to seal our borders and prohibit anyone from illegally entering our country. Take our armed forces that are currently stationed all over the world, bring them home and place them on our borders. Ease up the regulations to obtain legal entry and citizenship in our country. People here illegally can stay and have five years to apply for legal citizenship and must pay a serious fine for having entered illegally before they can obtain citizenship.
Anti-terrorism. Maintain the world’s greatest anti-terrorist network the world has ever seen. Squash the bugs while they are small, before they grow and multiply. I.E. kill the terrorists before they can kill us. Machiavelli must be studied and his strategies and tactics must be employed. Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” will be taught to all American children in High School. Intercept and destroy arms shipments from places like Iran, North Korea, and Russia that are bound for terrorist groups or terrorist friendly nations. Be pro-active in the fight against terrorism. Defeat our enemies before they can even think to oppose us!
Gay Marriage: Contrary to popular, liberal beliefs, the NCCPA loves gays and lesbians and transgendered individuals. We are not to judge, but rather to accept people as they are and love them and serve them as best we can. That having been said, we can still disagree with the homosexual lifestyle and try to convince gay people that heterosexual relationships are God’s plan for all people. Gays should have equal rights, and should be allowed to be legally joined to each other through a Civil Union Ceremony. Gays joined in Civil Union should have the same rights as Married people do with the same rights to divorce each other that married people do. However, we will not refer to Gay people as married; marriage has always been, in every civilization throughout all of recorded history, a union of a man and a woman. This will not change. But as far as rights to community property and to shared health-care benefits and in every other respect, gays will be allowed to join together in Civil Unions.
Energy Resources: Immediately begin construction of at least 100 nuclear power plants throughout the United States to provide clean, affordable electrical power to our people. Europe has gone nuclear, so should we! This will create thousands and thousands of jobs too. Lift the ban on oil exploration and drilling on the continental shelf and in ANWAR and start producing our own oil in stead of being dependant upon foreign governments for our oil, many of whom are hostile towards the United States. Immediately start to build dozens and dozens of oil refineries here in the U.S. so we can refine our own oil. This will also create thousands of jobs and secure our energy needs for the future. Invest millions into the pursuit of alternate energy sources so we can wean ourselves off of our dependence on fossil fuels and oil.
Healthy, Twelve-Step Principles. The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous can, and should be, applied by everyone to their lives. The Twelve Steps, which I believe are biblical in nature, should be taught in all of our high schools as a required course. These are only “suggestions” but they are some of the best damn “suggestions” evah. Millions and millions of people are leading healthier, happier lives thanks to their learning and employing the principles of the Twelve Steps to the everyday lives. These tools will not be forced on anyone, but they will be made available to everyone.
Fatherless children: Promote marriage and make it economically more beneficial in an effort to promote two-parent families. Fatherless children are nine times more likely to have trouble in school, or to get involved in criminal activity or with drugs. Responsible fathers should be exalted and promoted
Labor Unions: Abolish them as unconstitutional. While labor unions were necessary during the beggining of the 20th Century, ever since the middle of the 20th Century they have turned into corrupt organizations that look out more for themselves than for the common worker. Workers should be freed from the constraints Unions impose on them. Millions of American jobs have been shipped overseas thanks to the Unions who were supposed to be looking out for the common workers. The Unions ended up screwing the common worker out of decent jobs and screwing up the American manufacturing base.
No more sitting around like a bunch of morons while we let others, and liberals, take over our country. The America I grew up in the 80’s is gone and gone forever. We can’t bring that back and we are not trying to bring that back. What we are trying to do is move America in a healthy direction for the future based upon Judeo-Christian culture, beliefs and principles.
We are NOT Racist in any way shape or form. We try to love all peoples equally, as Christ would if he were here because he is here, in us. People are not to be judged and to the extent we fail in this endeavor, for we will surely fail sometimes, we will only judge the content of their character and not the color of their skin, their gender or sexual orientation.
