Razar's Rules for Czars

Mike Razar
Here are a few rules to help our Congressmen and Czars do their job properly.

Private Subsidies:

  • 1. Never give a subsidy to any for-profit company. By subsidy, I mean money, cash, loans, loan guarantees, special tax concessions not available to people and businesses that don't make campaign contributions. Example: green energy
  • 2. Did I say "for-profit"? The same rules should apply to not-for-profit organizations. Examples: ACORN, Planned Parenthood.
  • 3. These rules do not preclude private entities from doing business with the Government on a contractual basis. Specific purchases and carefully monitored scientific research are example of allowable transactions.
  • 4. Charities and religious institutions should get by on voluntary contributions. However they may use facilities that are generally available to the public on a nonpartisan basis like schools and parks. Specifically, religious symbols may be placed in areas open to similarly sized non-religious displays.
Transparency:

Every document, every e-mail, every conversation among government employees....they all belong to the American people. Unless a document is legally classified for national security, it should appear online in real time. That goes for the Bengazi docs and for everything the Justice Department has on Fast and Furious.

It goes for every document or video that local police generate when they beat up minorities...or non-minorities. It goes for every shred of evidence generated to prosecute a white collar criminal. It goes for ALL the taped conversations of Rod Blagoyavich. It goes for every bit of research generated by the Warren commission. It goes for the Kennedy autopsy....all of them. It goes for every internal memo or document generated by Congress. It goes for revealing which staff members draw up the legislation that congressmen don't even read. It goes for every statistic developed by the govt.

Here is a message to both the left and the right on this. If you work for the People, then the People own everything you do or write or say. If you want privacy, work for McDonalds.
