On Jan. 26, John Stossel suggested closing down the Federal Departments of Education, Housing and Urban Development and Commerce. He shouldn’t have stopped there. In order for American workers to be free of governmental interference, the Departments of Agriculture and Labor must be closed.
Stossel wants to sell Amtrak. That’s a positive step, but why not free up all methods of transportation by closing the Department of Transportation. While we’re at it, The Departments of Energy and Health and Human Services also have to go. Energy and the nation’s health are too important to leave to the federal government to control.
Finally, the American people need a little happiness in their lives. Therefore, eliminate the Federal Income Tax and replace it with nothing. Now, that ought to be good for a start.
