Do you want to …

- halt the growth of government?

- reduce government’s size and scope?

- get politicians to start actively limiting government?

- eliminate deficit spending?

- pay off the national debt?

- fight inflation?

- get rid of taxes altogether?

- live in a truly free society?

Then add the following provisions to the United States Constitution.

The Fiscal Restriction Amendment:

Section I. The United States Federal Government shall henceforth be prohibited from annually spending in excess of the dollar amount allocated for the 2008 Federal Budget. This amount shall under no circumstances be adjusted for inflation in the future. Payments of the existing national debt and the investment of public funds into interest-bearing accounts are exempt from this provision.

Section II. The United States Federal Government shall henceforth be prohibited from raising tax rates above the percentages which existed as of January 1, 2007.

Section III. The United States Federal Government shall henceforth be prohibited from spending in excess of its revenues.

Section IV. At least twenty percent of the total money spent annually by the United States Federal Government shall be allocated for military purposes.
