You've all heard of the "Fairness Doctrine."
Today I would like to introduce you to the "Farahness Doctrine."
Here's the way it works:

- Instead of limiting the choices American citizens have for gathering information, I propose we expand them. Government has no constitutional authority regulating speech or the press. I say lift the existing obstacles – like the McCain-Feingold law that tramples political speech – and expose attempts to kill the First Amendment altogether by reinstituting the euphemistically named "Fairness Doctrine."
- Instead of new restrictions on our Second Amendment-guaranteed right to defend ourselves with firearms, the Farahness Doctrine proposes scrapping the existing limits on our freedom to bear arms. They're not biblical and they're not constitutional. What else do we need to know? Oh yeah. Every dictatorship in the 20th century maintained control over the population by first forcibly disarming them. Let us never make the same mistake. And the facts are in on the big gun-control experiment in this country. Fewer guns equal more crime. More guns equal less crime.
- Instead of bailing out failing multinational corporations, why don't we instead provide tax incentives for production of goods and service right here in the USA? Like I proposed a couple weeks ago, why not offer, say, a $5,000 income tax credit to Americans who buy cars from U.S. automakers instead of forking over billions directly to them – just to keep them hanging on and giving government more authority to regulate how they do business?
If you like the Farahness Doctrine, you should know there's a lot more to it. No, there is no political party yet adopting this agenda. But there is a book that outlines it in much greater detail. It's Joseph Farah's own "Taking America Back." You can get it personally signed by the author only from Shop.WND.com.
- Instead of handing over bailout money to failing banks and investment firms and mortgage lenders, why not put the money back in the hands of consumers through massive tax cuts? Isn't that a better way to stimulate the economy? Isn't that the best "stimulus package" money can buy? I thought the party in power in Washington believe in trickle-up economics? Doesn't trickle-up economics mean allowing ordinary working people to keep more of their own hard-earned money? It seems to me what we are doing with bailouts is a perfect example of the trickle-down economics they claim to detest.
- Instead of turning our kids over to government schools where they can't pray, can't study the Bible and are indoctrinated into the religion (yes, the religion) of secular humanism and the perversion that comes with it, I say we all look for alternatives – beginning today, right now. The Farahness Doctrine holds that parents are usually the best teachers and homeschooling the best option. But, for heaven's sake, stop complaining about what the government school monopoly is doing to our kids and pull them out of those institutions. What is more important than the future of your children?
- Instead of giving away even more money to foreign countries, most of which use it to pad the pockets of corrupt and unaccountable government officials, I say stop all transfers of taxpayer wealth abroad – today!
- Instead of putting your faith in government to take care of you, I say put your faith in God and work hard. Be an example of self-governance. Take charge of your own family. Be a leader in your community. Meet the needs of the widows and orphans through your churches and synagogues. Get involved in feeding the hungry and clothing the naked yourself, as we are commanded to do in the Bible, and stop believing this is the proper role of government.
