Guest Commentary – Fantasy Candidate Part 5

Tonight for the guest commentary we have the final installment of Jon Smith’s Fantasy Candidate series. I have enjoyed reading the series that Jon has offered and I have even further enjoyed the discussions that have followed. I hope that this final installment will continue that trend. As we move forward into next week, we may see some changes here at SUFA. I will be starting my new career on Monday, meaning that my schedule is going to drastically change from what I am used to. My hope is that I will not see any significant change in my posting here but until I get started over there I really cannot say for sure. I will be writing Sunday night like usual and I intend certainly to offer the open mic on Tuesday night. After that we will take it as it comes. At any rate the posts will more than likely be published earlier than they have been in the past. I simply won’t be able to stay up until 5:00 am now that I will have a set daytime schedule that gets me up early again. I imagine, however, that once I get settled into my new schedule that my postings will be more regular because of the new set schedule, something I have not had in over a decade.

Guest Commentary – Fantasy Candidate Part 4

Tonight we delve back into the fantasy candidate series from Jon Smith. For those who read Jon’s site as well as this one, he has already posted this article there. However, there are quite a few of you here that do not regularly frequent Jon’s site, so I wanted to make sure that this gets seen by all of you as well. Tonight we delve into the positions that Jon’s fantasy candidate would take on existing legislation that we should be working to repeal. I have tried to think about everything on the list and I don’t see any of these that would be bad to repeal. But I do absolutely agree with Jon that on many of them we would have to take a slow approach that allows the pain from elimination to be minimal. I think that this part of the series will perhaps be the one that has the most constructive discussion around it. I will be interested in seeing what areas you think he missed, or what areas that he hit that you disagree with. I know that some of them seem to be simply “anti-Democrat” positions, such as health care, but if you are against repealing it, please explain why. I will do my best to be involved in the discussion on this article over the next few days as well.
Jon Offers Legislation that Needs to Go Away

Guest Commentary – Fantasy Candidate Part 3

And a hearty good evening to all of SUFA. I must again apologize for my sporadic posting lately. To say that things are hectic right now is an understatement. I have a lot of things that are transitioning which has made my schedule chocked full for the majority of the last month. I don’t see it really slowing down for another month for reasons that I will share later. As promised earlier this week, I tonight offer the third installment from Jon Smith’s fantasy candidate series. Tonight’s addition deals with new legislation that should be proposed, but not including anything that would be a repeal of current law, as that will come in a later section. I highly encourage everyone to talk out the proposals that Jon offers below. Would they work? Are they the best step in each of their respective areas? Are there other forms of legislation that should be offered that Jon has missed. With a government as bloated as the US federal government, there should be no shortage of legislation necessary to start paring things down.
