My Contract On America

Today at the Heritage Valley Tea Party I was lucky enough to be one of the speakers. I was very well-received by a terrific audience when I revealed my Contract On America. If I am reelected to Congress in November, I will make the following promises:

(1) Protest the Constitution:
At any point, where I am called out on my opposition to the Obama agenda, I will protest that it is unconstitutional.

(2) Reject Cap & Trade: Despite praising this idea when John McCain was pushing it, I will vote against that and instead refer to our atmosphere as "crunchy"

(3) Demand a Balanced Budget: We should have no problem supporting a balanced budget while fighting two wars and still keep social security and medicare strong if we just eliminate all other federal funding.

(4) Enact Fundamental Tax Reform: Adopt a simple and fair single-rate tax system by scrapping the internal revenue code and replacing it with one that has no words longer than 2 syllables and avoids all those foreign words. The tax forms should also have pictures for when we don't feel like reading.

(5) Restore Fiscal Responsibility & Constitutionally Limited Government in Washington: Create a Blue Ribbon taskforce because there is no better way to limit government than by creating a new committee. We will then follow the Constitution's original meaning and return all land acquired after 1803 to the proper countries. We will demand that France return to us the $15,000,000 dollar purchase price for Louisiana territory plus interest minus a reasonable and appropriate retroactive security deposit for New Orleans.

(6) End Runaway Government Spending:
Impose a statutory cap limiting the annual growth in total federal spending to a sum not exceeding the total prize winnings of the preceding year's NASCAR top finisher times 1,0000.

(7) Defund, Repeal & Replace Government-run Broadcasting: I will move to arrange for Ruper Murdoch to take control of NPR and require PBS to broadcast at least 2 hours of programming per night showing older Americans acting cool and solving crimes.

(8) Pass an 'All-of-the-Above' Spelling Policy:
We will stop the totalitarian rule of one size fits all spelling in our school system by demanding that teachers accept all variations on a word as long as it sounds kind of right.

(9) Modify Black History Month: Change the focus from black people through history who have overcome great odds to black people through history who didn't have it too bad like Amos McGee who in 1932 bought his own car and became and instant hit with his neighbors in Forest Park, New York.

(10) Stop the Tax Hikes: Permanently repeal all tax hikes that would force corporations to pay federal income taxes. Nearly 1/3 of America's corporations were forced to take on the unfair burden of paying taxes at a time when many unemployed and working poor Americans are ducking their tax liability by not making much money.

Congressman Kimble Opposes Obama Supreme Court Nominee

Today, my friends, the United States Supreme Court is at a tipping point. With the announced retirement of Justice John Paul Stevens, it is extremely important that a suitable replacement is found for Justice Stevens who will support those laws which our government was founded on that still remain popular to this day.

When George Bush was President, he picked two justices in Samuel Alito and John Roberts who were not only the epitome of judicial temperament, but also strict Constitutionalists who follow the ideals our founding fathers had for this country, its people, and its corporations. I had hoped that President Obama would follow President Bush's lead, but instead he has selected unqualified radicals in Justice Sotomayor and now with his latest nominee.

Right now, the Democrats have a majority, but we must not allow them to pack this court with another radical. We need only look at this nominee's judicial record to see a long history of supporting liberal special interests and turning their back on the family values and fiscal conservatism that this country was founded on.

As I mentioned earlier, judicial temperament is just as important as strict adherence to the Constitutionalism. That is why I can't understand why Obama has selected a nominee who is alternately bookishly withdrawn and prone to rage. Surely, there were other potential nominees who were better qualified. Obama's nominee seems to be defensive about both gender and race in a way that is unbecoming of a justice and would make me wonder if a white male could possibly get a fair hearing in front of them. The nominee has made repeated racist and/or sexist remarks that should disqualify anybody from the highest court in the land.

This nominee has not only shown a fondness for socialist philosophers, but also a liberal bias that will seriously endanger rights that we hold dear like the Second Amendment. I urge everybody to please call your Senator and let them know you will not support such a radical nominee.

Representative Jack Kimble (R-CA)
