Sen. Rick Scott Senate Re-Election Chair’s GOP Plan
Daughter1 provided this clear-text draft of the GOP 11-point plan from the eye-poison on the Scott website. It is still recursive as created, crowded and full of codewords, but much more readable. The “Sundown” clause alone is enough to end the Federal government as we know it. This is the plan, this is the real stuff:
Rick Scott’s GOP-Approved and Backed 11-Point Plan
1. Our kids will say the pledge of allegiance, salute the Flag, learn that America is a great country, and choose the school that best fits them. We will inspire patriotism and stop teaching the revisionist history of the radical left; our kids will learn about the wisdom of the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the founding fathers. Public schools will focus on the 3 R’s, not indoctrinate children with critical race theory or any other political ideology.
» Parents, not government, will choose the best schools for their kids.
» We will enact equal opportunity in education (school choice) so no child will be sent to a failing school simply because of their zip code.
» Kids in public schools will say the Pledge of Allegiance, stand for the National Anthem, and honor the American Flag. We must foster national unity.
» We will open our schools to parents. Parents must have the right to know what their children are being taught, who is teaching them, and which organizations are receiving school contracts.
» The FBI, DOJ, and all government entities will be expressly forbidden from intimidating parents who dare speak their minds at school board meetings.
» Public schools will teach our children to love America because, while not perfect, it is exceptional, it is good, and it is a beacon of freedom in an often-dark world.
» No child will be taught they are inherently racist because of the color of their skin, or that some Americans are oppressors and others are oppressed.
» Teacher tenure at public schools must be eliminated because it protects inadequate teachers, not good teachers.
» We will not allow political or social indoctrination in our schools. Teachers who refuse to comply will need to find new jobs.
» No public school will be allowed to discriminate against voluntary prayer or force children to check their faith at the door.
» We will close the federal Department of Education. Education is a state function. If Congress wants to spend money on education, they can cut out the middleman and send it directly to schools and parents.
» It will be America’s goal to be number one in the world in math and science by 2030.
2. Government will never again ask American citizens to disclose their race, ethnicity, or skin color on any government forms. We are going to eliminate racial politics in America. No government policy will be based on race. People “will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” We are all made in the image of God; to judge a person on the color of their epidermis is immoral.
» We will stop dividing people by race, skin color, ethnicity, or country of origin, which is an immoral and corrosive habit of the woke crowd.
» We will be a nation where people will be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.
» Ban the Box. Government will not ask American citizens to disclose their race, ethnicity, or skin color on any government form.
» No government policy can be based on race or ethnicity.
» Our military will engage in ZERO diversity training, teachings on critical race theory, or any woke ideological indoctrination that divides our troops. Our fighting force must be completely united and completely colorblind.
» Military leadership that prioritizes racial politics over the security of our country must be relieved of their duties.
» Colleges and universities that favor or discriminate against students based on race or ethnicity in the application process will be ineligible for federal funding and will lose their tax-exempt status.
» Government will base hiring decisions on qualications, not quotas of any kind.
» America will strive to provide equal opportunity for everyone but will not guarantee equal outcomes.
» We simply do not give a damn what color anyone’s skin is. That’s the colorblind future America deserves.
3. The soft-on-crime days of coddling criminal behavior will end. We will re-fund and respect the police because they, not the criminals, are the good guys.
We will enforce our laws, all of them, and increase penalties for theft and violent crime. We will clean up our cities and stop pretending that crime is OK. We have zero-tolerance for “mostly peaceful protests” that attack police officers, loot businesses, and burn down our cities.
» We will fund the police and stop all efforts to defund or “re-imagine” policing.
» We will bring back respect for people who put their lives on the line to keep us safe.
» We will support mandatory strict minimum sentences for all assaults involving serious injury to law enforcement officers.
» We will strengthen qualified immunity and legal protections for law enforcement officers to protect them from frivolous lawsuits.
» We will demand a nationwide crackdown on theft and violent crime by imposing stiffer penalties so we can restore law and order to our city streets.
» We will force prosecutors to prosecute. At present, many prosecutors in big cities are allowing criminals to go free with no justice, and they are doing it on purpose.
» We will make it a federal crime for any prosecutor, including the US Department of Justice, to pursue prosecution based on political ideology.
» We will eliminate no-knock warrants in any case that does not involve violent crime.
» We will increase penalties for spousal abuse and failure to pay child support.
» We will enact Marsy’s law which ensures victims of crimes have rights and constitutional protections equal to those who commit crimes.
» We will oppose every attempt to deny our 2nd Amendment freedoms and will defend our gun rights always, at all costs.
4. We will secure our border, finish building the wall, and name it after President Donald Trump.
Nations have borders. We should give that a try. President Trump’s plan to build a wall was right. We welcome those who want to join us in building the American dream, immigrants who want to be Americans, not change America. We are a stronger nation because we are a nation of immigrants; but immigration without assimilation makes us weaker. Politicians from both parties talk big about border security and do nothing. We are done with that.
» Countries have borders. We will control ours and secure it, once and for all.
» No one will enter without our permission. We lock our doors at night, not because we hate the people on the outside, but because we love the people on the inside and want to keep them safe.
» Many potential immigrants love America. Those who don’t will not be allowed to come here. This is our country, and no one has a “right” to come to America.
» We will employ military assets on our borders as needed. Border security is not simply a matter of domestic policy, it’s also a matter of national security.
» Immigrants will not be eligible to collect unemployment benefits or welfare for the first 7 years after arriving in the US.
» We will stop incentivizing people to come to America to receive government benefits. We have plenty of welfare recipients – we need productive citizens instead.
» We will strip all federal funding from “sanctuary cities” and prosecute any elected officials who flout our immigration laws.
» We will oppose all “comprehensive” immigration reform measures until we stop the lawlessness on our border, and our border is secured.
» We oppose cultural segregation. We believe in the ‘melting pot’, where people from many backgrounds go all-in on becoming Americans, “one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
5. We will grow America’s economy, starve Washington’s economy, and stop Socialism. Socialism is un-American and always leads to poverty and oppression. We will stop it. We will shrink the federal government, reduce the government work force by 25% in 5 years, sell government buildings and assets, and get rid of the old, slow, closed, top-down, government-run-everything system we have today.
» Socialism will be treated as a foreign combatant which aims to destroy our prosperity and freedom.
» Other than essential core functions, government should not be doing anything that the private sector can do better and cheaper.
» We will apply the “Do It Better” Test: If American businesses can serve the American people better and cheaper than government, the work goes to them.
» No government assistance unless you are disabled or aggressively seeking work. If you can work, but refuse to work, you cannot live off of the hard work and sweat of your fellow Americans.
» We will require “truth in governing.” If government passes a law that does not achieve what it promised, the program will be shut down.
» We will balance the federal budget. It can be done. States do it all the time.
» If Congress does not pass a budget, the members of Congress do not get paid. Full stop.
» Other than disaster relief, the federal government must stop spending money on non-essential state and local projects until the budget is balanced.
» Eliminate truly non-essential government employee positions, because they are non-essential.
» Implement the line-item veto. It works in state capitols. It will work in Washington.
» Expedite all federal permit applications to be granted or denied within 30 days.
» All Americans should pay some income tax to have skin in the game, even if a small amount. Currently over half of Americans pay no income tax.
» Prohibit debt ceiling increases absent a declaration of war.
6. We will eliminate all federal programs that can be done locally, and enact term limits for federal bureaucrats and Congress. Many government agencies should be either moved out of Washington or shuttered entirely. Yesterday’s old government is fundamentally incompatible with the digital era. The permanent ruling class in Washington is bankrupting us with inflation and debt, so they must be removed. For you to have more, Washington must have less.
» Enact term limits for the Washington ruling class – 12-year limits for Congress and government bureaucrats. (Exceptions for national security reasons only.)
» Begin paying down debt. Debt = politicians stealing from our future and stealing from all of us right now with inflation.
» Forbid politicians from becoming lobbyists and “cashing-in” on their public service.
» Eliminate federal programs that can be done locally. Any government function that can be handled locally should be.
» Move most Government agencies out of Washington and into the real world.
» Sell off all non-essential government assets, buildings, and land, and use the proceeds to pay down our national debt.
» All federal legislation sunsets in 5 years. If a law is worth keeping, Congress can pass it again.
» All government bids and contracts should be publicly available on the internet.
» If government fails to comply with the law, citizens must have the right to sue to force them to comply.
» No government employee can make more than 5 times the national median individual income.
» We will bar the federal government from using your tax dollars for advertising campaigns.
» We will drastically simplify the tax code, and eliminate the advantages of those who can afford tax lawyers and lobbyists.
» We will immediately cut the IRS funding and workforce by 50%.
» We will allow Veterans to choose how they access health care, either through the VA or private providers, whichever they prefer.
» Force Congress to issue a report every year telling the public what they plan to do when Social Security and Medicare go bankrupt.
7. We will protect the integrity of American Democracy and stop left-wing efforts to rig elections. Today’s Democrat Party is trying to rig elections and pack the courts because they have given up on Democracy. They don’t believe they can win based on their ideas, so they want to game the system and legalize voter fraud to stay in power. In true Orwellian fashion, Democrats refer to their election rigging plans as “voting rights”. We won’t allow the radical left to destroy our democracy by institutionalizing dishonesty and fraud.
» We will fight for maximum voter participation and zero percent voter fraud.
» Voter ID, requiring a voter to validate their identity, must be the law. Democrats support requiring ID to get a COVID test, vaccination card, or enter a restaurant. All arguments against Voter ID are in favor of fraud.
» ‘Ballot harvesting’, which the Democrats favor, and which allows political operatives and activists to collect and clone ballots from voters, must be banned.
» Ballots can only be submitted to a polling location by a voter or the post office. No ballots that show up after election day will be counted, ever.
» Many Democrats now advocate allowing non-citizens to vote in American elections. New York City now does this. This is too insane for words and must be stopped.
» The Democrats favor using your taxpayer money to finance political campaigns. No serious person would ever favor this. It must never happen.
» Counting of ballots must be done in full public view, expeditiously, and continue without pause until all votes have been tabulated.
» There must be no same-day registration, as this does not allow election officials to verify the validity and accuracy of voter information.
» No one should be automatically registered without their consent or knowledge, as this opens the way for multiple registrations by the same individual and registration of ineligible voters.
» Unmanned or unmonitored ballot boxes in public areas to collect unlimited ballots must be prohibited.
» No American citizen can be denied their sacred right to vote or be given special voting privileges based on race, religion, zip code, or ethnic origins.
8. We will protect, defend, and promote the American Family at all costs. The nuclear family is crucial to civilization, it is God’s design for humanity, and it must be protected and celebrated. To say otherwise is to deny science. The fanatical left seeks to devalue and redefine the traditional family, as they undermine parents and attempt to replace them with government programs. We will not allow Socialism to place the needs of the state ahead of the family.
» No federal program or tax laws will reward people for being unmarried or discriminate against marriage.
• Even though many single moms heroically do the job of raising a family (as my mom often had to) children need and deserve both parents – and government should not be shy about saying so.
• Families are crucial in raising young men and women of character and responsible members of society. The best form of governing our society is not government, it is family.
» Abortions are a tragedy. We must make adoption accessible and affordable.
• We currently make it very expensive for prospective parents to adopt, even though many kids desperately need families. This is insane and we will change it.
• We will help low income single women who are considering abortion choose life instead, by paying all costs associated with carrying the child to term and placing the child for adoption.
• We will STOP Democrat Party efforts to discriminate against faith-based adoption agencies. We will do just the opposite. Most faith-based groups provide far superior service than government agencies do. We will utilize and empower them.
» School administrators and teachers will work for parents.
• Parents, not government, will choose which schools their kids attend.
• We will end the Biden Administration policy of using the FBI to intimidate parents who speak up at school board meetings.
» We must defend the American family from societal elements that erode it.
• We must enforce existing federal obscenity laws. Our society has almost given up on demanding decency, we must aim higher.
• We must protect our children from the explosion of pornography and cyber predators. The FCC must hold online platforms and broadband providers accountable for not adequately providing tools for parents to keep this trash out of their homes.
» We will make it impossible for deadbeat dads to avoid paying child support – beginning with paternity. They will either pay up or go to jail, with no other options.
9. Men are men, women are women, and unborn babies are babies. We believe in science: Men and women are biologically different, “male and female He created them.” Modern technology has confirmed that abortion takes a human life. Facts are facts, the earth is round, the sun is hot, there are two genders, and abortion stops a beating heart. To say otherwise is to deny science.
» Abortion kills human children. To deny that is to deny science.
» Whether you believe in God or not, as a civilized people who accept science, we must protect babies, born and unborn, from all acts of violence.
» All government policies will favor having more babies adopted, not aborted.
» Humans are born male and female, there are two genders, and to deny that is to deny science.
» No government forms will include questions about “gender identity” or “sexual preference.”
» No doctor will be allowed to perform irreversible surgical or gender-altering procedures on any minor child. Once they become adults, they can do what they wish.
» We will protect women’s sports by banning biological males from competing. It is hugely unfair and would erase many of the gains women have made in athletics over the last 50 years.
10. Americans will be free to welcome God into all aspects of our lives, and we will stop all government efforts to deny our religious freedom and freedom of speech. The Democrat Party and their Big Tech allies are not merely secular; they have virtually created a new religion of wokeness that is increasingly hostile toward people of faith, particularly Christians and Jews. They are determined to drive all mention of God out of public view. We will not be silenced, canceled, or told what words to use by the politically correct crowd.
» Americans will not be required to go against their core values and beliefs in order to conform to culture or government.
» We will reject both the roots and the adherents of cancel culture in America.
» Every American will be free to live out their religious convictions in the public square, not only in the home or a place of worship.
» We will forbid government programs from discriminating against the 350,000 religious entities which operate schools, pregnancy resource centers, soup kitchens, drug addiction programs, homeless shelters, and adoption agencies.
» All social media platforms that censor speech and cancel people will be treated like publishers and subject to legal action.
» We will require big tech platforms, like Facebook and Twitter, to receive express consent (not as a condition of use) before using Americans’ personal information in any manner, and make it simple for users to opt out.
» Big Tech platforms will also be required to obtain user consent to sell, share, or convey user data to a third-party entity.
» No tax dollars will be used to pay for any diversity training or other woke indoctrination that is hostile to faith.
» Churches and faith-based groups will not be forced to hire employees who disagree with their tenets and convictions.
» We will stop investing federal retirement dollars with ‘woke’ fund managers and companies that put le‑-wing politics ahead of profits.
» Remember – the Second Amendment was established in order to protect the freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment.
11. We are Americans, not globalists. America will be dependent on NO other country. We will conduct no trade that takes away jobs or displaces American workers. Countries who oppose us at the UN will get zero financial help from us. We will be energy independent and build supply chains that never rely on our adversaries. We will only help countries that are willing to defend themselves, like Israel.
» We will unapologetically lead the world by example. A world without American leadership would be a very dark world.
» Adhere to the New Monroe Doctrine – America will not allow any global enemy, such as China, Russia, or Radical Islam, to grow their presence in our hemisphere.
» No foreign aid to any country that habitually opposes us at the UN.
» We will not pay any dues to the United Nations or any international organization that undermines the national interests of the USA.
» We will make our international allies pay their fair share for their own defense. We will not send our kids to do what their kids will not do.
» Our military will not be used as a peace-keeping force, it exists to protect us by intimidating or killing our enemies.
» Nation-building does not work, we will not waste our treasure or troops doing it.
» We will always defend our allies, starting with Israel.
» We will treat our enemies like enemies.
» No adversarial foreign government or corporation controlled by an adversarial foreign government can purchase American land.
» The weather is always changing. We take climate change seriously, but not hysterically. We will not adopt nutty policies that harm our economy or our jobs. America will be dependent on NO other country. We will conduct no trade that takes away jobs or displaces American workers. Countries who oppose us at the UN will get zero financial help from us. We will be energy independent and build supply chains that never rely on our adversaries. We will only help countries that are willing to defend themselves, like Israel.
» We will gradually end all imports from Communist China until a new regime honors basic human rights and freedoms.
» We will build supply chains that rely solely on American workers and allies. We will not be at the mercy of our enemies for medications or any essential commodities.
» We will terminate any trade deal that takes away American jobs.
» America will be energy independent.
