 Bronze For Brent Thompson: Statue in the Works for Slain DART Officer

DART Officer Brent Thompson
By Deanna Kirk - Corsicana Daily Sun
Heroes have been memorialized and immortalized in bronze for generations, dating back to wars early in our nation's history.

So it is only fitting that a bronze is being sculpted in memory of DART Officer Brent Thompson, who was killed in the line of duty in Dallas the night of July 7, 2016. Thompson saved the lives of fellow officers and peaceful protesters that night from a crazed gunman, but gave his own life in the process.

 A Better Way -- U.S. House Republican Vision For A Confident America

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan -- A Better Way 2016
A Better Way To Grow Our Economy
A Confident America is the best place in the world to live, work, build things, start a business, and raise a family.

Regulations are important. They help protect our health, safety, and well-being, and provide firm rules for us to live by. But taken beyond their initial purpose -- and to an extreme -- regulations can stifle innovation and infringe upon liberty.

The current system is costly and closed to innovation. In 2015, regulations cost us $1.89 trillion in lost productivity and growth. Put another way, if our regulatory system were a country, it would have the world's 9th largest economy, behind India. Indeed, red tape is an empire in its own right.

There are no limits in the amount of regulatory costs Washington can impose each year. Few old regulations are taken off the books. And where we see new sources of innovation -- from energy to the internet itself -- regulators see new chances for control. Even Congress is complicit, having delegated broad authority to unelected bureaucrats. Regulators can regulate first and never have to answer questions later, while you have little recourse or say in the process. All this adds up to a system that favors established interests -- big government, big labor, and big business -- over hardworking Americans and consumers.

A Better Way To Uphold Our Constitution
In a Confident America, the government upholds the Constitution and works for the people, not the other way around.

Just as the size of government has grown, so has its arrogance. Washington spends money it isn't authorized to spend. It takes power it isn't given. It ignores laws it is required to execute. It doesn't listen, and it certainly doesn't care to learn.

The Founders insisted on a separation of powers to protect our constitutional liberties. But over time, especially in recent decades, the executive branch has collected more power for itself, enabled by a judiciary that defers to the bureaucracy and a Congress that has yielded some its most fundamental duties. James Madison warned that the Constitution is "a mere parchment barrier" unless each branch asserts its powers to keep ultimately comes at the expense of the people, who rightly feel detached from -- distrustful of -- their government.

A Better Way For Tax Reform
We send too much money to Washington, D.C. and too many jobs overseas. In a Confident America, the IRS and the tax code work for people, not against us.

We need a new tax code. It needs to be fair and simle for everyone. It should be so simple that most Americans can do their taxes on a form as simple as a postcard.

Our tax code should be built for growth. It should be built for growth. It should help make the United States the best place in the world to hire and invest. And if we're going to have a better tax code, we need a better IRS, one that puts the taxpayers first.

This blueprint offers a better way to dramatic reform -- without increasing the deficit. It does so by promoting growth -- of American jobs, wages, and ultimately the entire economy.

A Better Way To Fight Poverty
If the American Dream isn't true for everyone, it isn't true for anyone. All of us should have the chance to make the most of our lives no matter where we start.

Our country is all about striving, but too many of our people are stuck. Over the years, Washington has made many promises, created many programs, and spent many trillions to fight poverty. Yet today in America, if you are raised poor, you are just as likely to stay poor as you were 50 years ago. The key word here is "stay."

Our welfare system is rigged to replace work, not encourage work. Washington measures success by how many programs it creates, not by how many people it helps. The system traps families in a cycle of poverty, shuffling them from program to program instead of helping them break free altogether.

A Better Way To Keep Us Safe And Free
A Confident America keeps its people safe, and keeps the peace in a dangerous world.

Our nation's foreign policy is failing at nearly every turn. From refusing to enforce its red line in Syria, to legitimizing Iran's nuclear enrichment program, to its failed reset with Russia, to cavalierly dismissing the retreat while the most dangerous terrorist organization in history emerged. the Obama administration has experimented with a new foreign policy concept -- leading from behind -- that can now be declared an unambiguous failure.

Our enemies no longer fear us and our allies no longer trust us. Terrorists and rogue regimes are stepping up to fill the void, leading to a humanitarian catastrophe in Syria that is causing the worst refugee crisis in World War II.

A Better Way To Fix Health Care
In a Confident America, everyone has access to quality, affordable health care.

Obamacare is making health care worse by the day. It drives up premiums and deductible costs for individuals, families, and businesses. It forces people off the plans they like. It fuels waste, fraud, and abuse. And it cannot be fixed. Its knot of regulations, taxes, and mandates cannot be untangled.

Obamacare must be fully repealed so we can start over and take a new approach.
