American Serb Hall, Milwaukee, WI

Threats to Our Freedom, Right Here at Home

Our liberty and freedom are under attack. Threats continue to come from overseas, but we are increasingly seeing dangers coming from within our own borders. Socialists, communists, anarchists sharia law, and the shadow of home grown Islamic jihad all aim to harm us in our own backyards.

The Midwest Security Conference will feature discussion on the current state of national security, what we should be watching, how to communicate this threat to others, and how we can demand action from public officials at all levels of government.

The event is designed to inform and create action.

Efficient Government Agencies

How to cut government spending where bureaucrats will WANT to cut!

It is a well known and quite understandable reaction of any bureau to make sure that the current year’s budget has been spent by the end of the fiscal year, even on unnecessary projects, else they lose it. Personal interest should have every employee watching for any possible waste of the taxpayer’s dollars.

A new budgeting policy for each bureau should be established, where any unspent budgeted funds at the end of the fiscal year shall be equally divided up and paid out to all of the employees in that bureau, and, then the lower budget figure, pre-disbursement, would be used for the next fiscal year, with, again, any unspent surplus being distributed to the employees who made the surplus possible.

No money would be saved the first year, but from then on every department would have continuously lowering budgets. Could the cost of running the state be cut in half in three years? I think so. The bottom line would be far more efficient and less costly state services.
