ANNOUNCEMENT: Dave's new book 'Build the New GOP: New Policies to Guide
Republican Candidates and Leaders' was published on March 11, 2013. It offers new ideas and policies that should
be adopted by the emerging new leaders of the new GOP. Dave will send copies to DC, State, and County leaders, and potential
candidates, nationwide. The goals are to:
1. Better serve the USA by achieving more Liberty, Peace, and Prosperity,
and less war for Empire and oil, and
2. Win more elections, by restoring tradional Republican principles,
as used by Taft, Goldwater, Reagan, and Kemp.

USA is a failing empire, with all of the major signs such as;
1) A fiat paper currency (not redeemable
for a commodity such as gold) falling in value (purchasing power),
2) A corrupt government which ignores the Constitution
and many laws, and
3) Consumer-oriented citizens that expect the government to take care of them using 'other people's
All empires in history have failed, and the USA is in the failure stage. Over 90% of our Congress persons
are careerists who will do almost anything to keep and enhance their plush jobs and pensions. The same applies to the
Executive branch and all the bureaucrats who work for it and Congress. Most of them are self-serving parasites. We must fight
them and restore our government to its proper role of just defending our rights, as written in the Constitution. It is not
the government's job to manage the economy and control our lives and the world! Our current economic and social
problems show they make things worse! History, and the world around us today, proves that free enterprise and limited
government work best to create more peace, prosperity, liberty, justice and morality (less lying and theft) for all.
The message of the Forward-USA Foundation consists of this web site, and my books; 'Build the New
GOP' (New Poliies for Candistae and leaders), 'Rebuild America Now' (US problems
and solutions; most of the text is from this web site), and 'Monetary Revolution USA' (abolish
the Federal Reserve System and allow private mints to make gold as money) The text of two books is at Parts 1 and 2
in the left margin of this site, and all are available on Amazon.com. See my bio at Part 6 in the
left margin of this site.
The goal of the project is to bring awareness to US citizens of
the causes of, and solutions to, our serious social, economic, and governance problems, so we can all enjoy more peace,
prosperity, liberty, justice, and ethics. As more people become concerned about the likely crash of the US Dollars'
value (purchasing power), the precarious state of our economy, and our illegal and immoral (power and oil
seeking) ‘Empire-USA’, we will have mass support to bring pressure on Congress to make changes in our national

This plan includes spending cuts, elimination
of unconstitutional federal departments and agencies, abolition of the Federal Reserve System, and conversion to the gold
standard with private mints. Deficit spending will be ended in two years. History shows us that this approach ALWAYS results
in more peace, prosperity, liberty and justice for all. Let's get started!!
The 2013 plans in Congress shows
deficits 25 years or forever, and allows the Fed to continue creating fake money. This is unsustainable, and doomed for

and at Part 8 'Dave's Writings' in the left margin. Please tell your friends about my issue positions.
Our StoryPlease keep in mind this fundamental
issue: Our Founders wrote in the preamble, ‘We the People … do ordain and establish this Constitution...’. I say the time has come for We the People to
again ordain and establish our Constitution, and make our government officials, and judges, comply
with it. Most (over 50%) of our laws and spending since 1932 have been unconstitutional! As discussed in Part 8-A and B in
the left margin, ALL of our wars since 1776 have been unconstitutional, and started based on lies. It is time
to fight back to restore the rule of law, and stop the abuse and crimes done by self-serving politicians and their
corporate and 'more-government' Progressive friends!
What you read here will expose how greedy, self-serving, people and groups since our nation's founding have sought money,
laws, and court rulings from our government at all levels (city, county, state, federal) to support their 'projects'
(or for personal gain) while they and Congress ignore the constitution. The result has been a counterproductive increase
in government spending, and control of our economy and lives. The analyses herein are fully supported by fact and
logic. All conclusions are based on cause-and-effect correlation of events (results of policies and actions). Many writers
settle for just correlation, and assume or imply cause-and-effect; a fatal error in logic. I take a comprehensive, integrated, approach,
and will show how power-seekers use lies and fake-money (Part 8-A2 in the left margin) to control national economies
and restrict personal liberty. Imperial-style governments, and complicit 'banksters', create and use central banks to
fund their treachery. History shows us that these empires always fail due to excess spending, debt and corruption (Part 5
in the left margin). Sadly, the USA is heading for failure unless we move quickly to mend our ways.
A Constitutional Republic such as the USA depends on constant vigilance by its citizens to prevent takeover by the always
present self-serving power seekers in our midst. Our citizens have become lazy in this regard, and our government's orientation
toward empire, spending, corruption, and war are the bitter fruit of this neglect. It is my mission to renew our
into our present economic and moral mess in the same way most nations in history have: Corrupt leaders (political
and financial) using war, fake money, and debt to enhance their power. In order to get more re-election votes, campaign
donations, wealth, and power, it has become 'normal' for our leaders and Congresspersons to support; a. Expensive,
unconstitutional, programs, b. Counterproductive distortions of the free-market, and c. Non-defense wars for Empire based
on lies. Many of their votes in Congress are to serve their friends and campaign donors, not 'We The People'. Our
Federal government, and most States, have gone far astray and need to be restored to their proper roles in compliance
with their constitutions. States Rights have withered as power, control and funding move to DC, where the (fake)
money is. We have all the traits of a failing empire (see Part 5 in the left margin), as briefly stated in the three points
below, and in detail on this site.
1. Economics: Our once productive economy has been weakened by fake money (Federal Reserve 'notes' made
from thin air, not redeemable in a commodity, such as gold, with market value). See Parts 1 and 2 in left margin for
the text of my 'Monetary Revolution' book that describes our monetary system problems, and shows how to convert our
present monetary sytem to Gold as Money! The current Fed Notes can be made for just the cost of paper or computer
digits, which allows us to spend to excess on wars and welfare, and import most of the goods we once made (and thus jobs
are exported) so we have become a 'consumer economy' using debt for our high life style. Politicians and Banksters
love it, but the party is over when the money drops in value (as the Dollar has, and continues to). This spending is only
possible because the US Dollar is the primary world's reserve currency (nations and firms buy and sell with it worldwide),
and anybody will accept and keep it as we create more (monetary inflation). However, it is losing value as we expand the money
supply to pay our bills and debts (and 'stimulate' the economy with QE1, 2, 3, etc.), and will crash within 2 to 5
years unless we reduce spending and debt! Crony-Capitalism and corporate subsidies have replaced free-enterprise and competition.
Corruption is routine and rampant.
2. Personal Rights: Our civil rights are being voided and abused as government (especially the Feds, who have all the money)
and the police act like our boss, rather than our servant as defined by the Constitution. Warrantless wire-tapping,
FISA, TSA, absence of habeas corpus, and SWAT teams restricting our right to assemble, are but a few examples.
We are becoming a Police State!
3. Morals: Our leading faults are; a) The death, maiming and displacement of people, and damage to their
land, caused by our wars for Empire (oil, etc., not defense), and b) Our income tax system that is based on gang-theft-by-vote
(group A votes to take money from Group B, 'the rich, etc.', to give to Group C, 'schools, the poor, farmers,
pals, etc.'). Once the majority of a nation's voters accept this form of taxing (often using the excuses
'we all benefit', or make the rich pay their 'fair share', etc.), the door to excess taxation and spending
is open, and the government grows like a cancer. Use of 'progressive' rates to increase the percent tax on higher
incomes (a penalty on success) adds to the offense. The government is soon viewed as a 'money pot' to do anything
'nice' or 'needed' (the Constitution is ignored), and most people strive for a part of it. Some say 'we
need taxes in order to adequately fund our social welfare projects'. I say if you want to help someone, voluntary charity
is the best way. It's more work to seek voluntary donations, but moral, and less is needed in a prosperous,
work-oriented society. No fair using immoral funding methods to support your projects.
Reduce Government Spending by 50% or More
To help solve both the economic and moral issues
above, we need at least a 50% reduction in government spending, and more use of fully compensatory 'user fees' (school
tuition, parks, libraries, buses, etc.), would be a good start to needing less tax revenue, and end of the invasive
and damaging IRS. See my Internet article at Part 8-A-1-g in the left margin. This would bring a form of free-market
pricing (voluntary purchases; no subsidies) to government services: 'If people won't pay the full cost (not worth
it), don't provide it!' If people really want a service or product, the free-market will always provide
it (if allowed by the government !), and history shows the cost to create, operate, and maintain it will be far below
what the government cost would be. 'Rapid rail transit' is a good example. Contractors love to build them (and
donate to the legislators who approved them), but ALL of them require subsidies to attract customers, and even so often have
low usage. Buses are cheaper and allow more flexible (and adjustable) routing, but don't help politicians get elected!
There are a million examples, and they are all dragging us down!
End Empire-USA, and Its Wars
Many of our problems relate to building and operating 'Empire-USA'. We don't own many colonies
('territories'), but we have a lot of control over other nations, and have over 800 bases worldwide to 'assure
compliance'. This is called an 'interventionist foreign policy' at best; some would say 'boss and bully'.
The secret Grand Plan for our wars in Afghan (access for a pipeline to Turkmenistan), Iraq (oil and defense of Israel),
and Libya (oil and evict China) is about getting their oil, and land for bases to control all oil and gas in the greater mid
east , from the east of Caspian 'xxstans' to North Africa (Iran and Syria next?). We want it all, and want
to exclude China, Russia, and India. All the Bush and Obama reasons for these wars (and the entire 'War on Terror'),
such as the Taliban, Al-Qaeda, WMD and nation-building, are lies! They 'used' 911 as an excuse to bully the world
and US citizens. See the 'True Reasons for War' essay at part 8-B-1 in the left margin. These wars, and
our worldwide Empire projects, are illegal, immoral, unconstitutional, expensive, and counterproductive, and must be stopped
promptly! They are for economic and political goals, not defense. It is a tragic abuse of our troops to send them to die,
or be maimed, for these non-defense wars!!Empires cost a lot of money to run and also create enemies. People don't like to have foreign troops
on their soil, and violations of their culture. They especially hate invading 'occupiers', hence the attacks
on our troops by locals and their 'insurgent' friends. Our bases create a lot of animosity, some violent, as we have
seen with various bombings and 9-11 (see W. Pape's book 'Dying to Win', about suicide bombers; the poor man's
nuke). The counterproductive results of Empire-USA are also covered in C. Johnson's three books 'The Blowback Trilogy'.
Our current economic and military problems are the classic symptoms of an Empire in decline (see #5 'Empire' in the
The Imperial Presidency
of our Executive branch of the federal government has continued to grow since the Spanish-American War in 1898 (our
first war of aggression for lands abroad) because of its accepted role in leading foreign affairs. The fake 'Gulf of Tonkin'
incident led to the Vietnam War and LBJ's massive 'Guns and Butter' spending.Then Nixon abrogated our last monetary
connection to gold in 1971, and spending took off even more!. (see #1 'Fake Money', and #2 New Money, in
the left margin)
A big increase in executive power was forced by Bush and Cheney, who were the
most aggressive in creating an 'Imperial Presidency', assisted by a meek, self-serving Congress. Long 'Signing
Statements' changed laws already passed by Congress! Existing laws and the Constitution were ignored. After their election
mandate in 2004, the Democrats took reform 'off the table', hoping to use the new powers later for themselves
(and Obama is!). The Bush-Cheney plan was to rule the USA and the world from DC, with a focus on controlling access to
cheap oil. Pre-emptive wars for economic and political goals (for oil and Israel, not homeland defense), bribes to foreign
rulers, domestic pork and welfare, intimidation, assassinations, torture, and sponsored insurrections were their primary
tools. The problem with such Imperialistic plans is that they are not only illegal and immoral, but they never
work. Expenses, corruption, and backlash/blowback grow faster than the 'benefits'. Death, and destruction abroad,
and a depression, loss of rights, and crushing debt at home, are the results we see around us today.Thus, the
USA has declined from its peak of military and economic strength in the 1950 to 1970 period, and now faces serious problems.
All empires fail in a similar way; a. Corruption, and b. Excess spending at home and abroad.
Since history, and our own experience, shows that empires eventually do more harm than good to their homeland, it is
obviously smart to not be one. England, France, Spain, and Russia had sense enough to back-off, and give up their colonies,
when they faced going broke. The USA should do the same, and emerge as a good customer (with a strong negotiating position)
as it enjoys peaceful trade worldwide. This is not a weak or 'peacenik' approach, it is the smart way to avoid economic
and political failure. Fortunately, I have a plan to minimize the decline, and recover our strength. It is named;
