APA Administrative Procedure Act (APA June 11, 1946) [Congress gave Executive Branch authority to make, execute, and judge administrative law (regulations)]: What happened to the oaths sworn or affirmed to support and defend the Constitution? Federal agencies and departments shouldn’t even exist that have powers that are not enumerated in the Constitution of the United States. Regardless of the wording of acts or legislation, the final results are based upon those officials that are supposed to be bound by the Constitution.
Our current president violates his oath to the Constitution. The supreme law is in place, but not followed. We need acts and laws to enforce the Constitution in regulating/eliminating unconstitutional agencies and departments. We need a well instructed people enforcing the laws of the Union (the Constitution) which is in place to protect the unalienable rights of the people in order to recover and retain our liberties disparaged by Federal agencies, departments and executive orders that usurp the enumerated powers of the three branches of government.
Transportation: The Federal governments powers are restricted and enumerated in the Constitution. Most Federal departments names could be reversed to reveal their true nature including this out of control agency that in many ways wastefully contributes to the Federal debt and compromises the rights instead of protecting the unalienable rights of the people.
Impeachment: Criminal charges of treason are less expensive and more effective. Article III, Section 3 defines treason as giving aid and comfort to enemies of the United States and it does not state “in time of war.” Two witness can convict anyone of treason in a court. The penalty for treason is death or imprisonment. Isn’t that as good as impeachment?
Economy: We need to understand that the economy is mostly in trouble because of a major book keeping error that happened under the Nixon administration. The privately owned “non-profit” Federal Reserve was allowed to go off the gold and silver standard and Nixon forgot to tell them that going off the gold standard automatically converted all Federal Reserve Note Dollars not redeemed by the Federal Reserve, into pure profit for the Federal Reserve’s share holders, which made the Federal Reserve no longer a non-profit entity. Those profits are staggering in size and need to be returned to the treasury. This would have a tremendous reduction effect on the Federal debt and the money creating power returned to government would bolster our economy in ways far exceeding most economists expectations.

- Department of Labor (DOL) – savings: $116 billion
- Department of the Interior (DOI) – savings: $13 billion
