    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    This reminds me of a thread that we had in 2009, when Obama was filling his cabinet with tax cheats, communists and assorted academic hacks. My choices then:

    http://www.conservativeunderground.c...net+dream+team

    Imagine that you are the President-Elect of the United States and have to assemble a cabinet. Who is your dream team?

    Here's mine, with the caveat that some departments would be eliminated and merged into other departments IOT scale them back to their few legitimate functions at the federal level:

    Vice President of the United States
    Sarah Palin

    Department of State
    John Bolton

    Department of the Treasury
    Thomas Sowell

    Department of Defense
    Ralph Peters

    Department of Justice
    Attorney General
    Mark Levin (until a Supreme Court position opens up)
    Solicitor General
    Ann Coulter

    Department of the Interior
    Rudy Guiliani

    Department of Agriculture
    Eliminated, functions merged under Department of Interior

    Department of Commerce
    Eliminated, functions merged under Department of Interior and Department of State

    Department of Labor
    Eliminated, functions merged under Department of Interior

    Department of Health and Human Services
    Eliminated, functions merged under Department of Interior

    Department of Housing and Urban Development
    Eliminated, functions merged under Department of Interior

    Department of Transportation
    Eliminated, functions merged under Department of Interior

    Department of Energy
    Eliminated, functions merged under Department of Defense

    Department of Education
    Eliminated, functions merged under Department of Interior

    Department of Veterans Affairs
    Eliminated, functions merged under Department of Defense

    Department of Homeland Security
    GEN David Petraeus

    Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers
    Milton Friedman

    Environmental Protection Agency
    Eliminated, functions merged under Department of the Interior

    Office of Management & Budget
    Walter Williams

    United States Trade Representative
    Lawrence Kudlow

    United States Ambassador to the United Nations
    Victor Davis Hansen

    White House Chief of Staff
    Bobby Jindal

    Press Secretary
    Rush Limbaugh
    The only change that I'd make to that is that if Bachmann is the POTUS, then I'd want somebody with a really sharp tongue as the veep. Chris Christie has the style, but he's not conservative enough. Maybe Rush Limbaugh, and put Mark Steyn or Dennis Miller in as the press secretary.

    I would go one step farther and say "Eliminated by executive order repealing the Department of Education Organization Act (Public Law 96-88) with functions returned to state control"

    But that's just me.

    That goes without saying, but any Constitutionally legitimate educational functions at the federal level could be handled by Interior, not that there are many.
