Constitutional Convention Call Redux – Rexford G. Tugwell & The New States Constitution

March 22, 2013 Leave a comment

There are numerous organizations promoting a Constitutional Convention under the guise of a Balanced Budget Amendment. Tom DeWeese wrote about the 10 Amendments for Freedom, Inc, chaired by William Fruth, President of POLICOM Corporation. He covered this in his articles, “Powerful Forces Calling for a Constitutional Convention,” and “Constitutional Convention Cannot be Controlled.”

Back in 1995, model resolutions for the Conference of States (COS) came from the National Council of State Legislators (NCSL), the organization that indoctrinates liberal (mostly Democratic) legislators, just as American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) does the conservatives (Republicans). The NCSL is presently backing the internet sales tax, and the rotten E-Verify.

The guy interviewing seems to grow somewhat uncomfortable with what he is saying.

 

Jessie should have body~slammed him through the table.

 

I feel he does help bring awareness to some who may only get their daily news from mainstream media. The majority of people watching TV or the news believe everything they are told for the most part.

 

For the ATS crowd much of the things he says wont shock us at all, but to have him speak on live TV and say these things is good to maybe shed some light on those who choose not to deny ignorance.

How Many 2008 McCain Voters Went Libertarian in 2012?

November 19, 2012 2 comments

Campaign Spot reader Michaelwrites in, having examined the claim of the missing Republican voters — the drop off from McCain’s 2008 total to Romney’s 2012. Immediately after the election, many were left incredulous in response to the apparent news that Romney received 3 million fewer votes than McCain did.

Contra Randy Barnett on the Libertarian Party by Walter Block

November 9, 2012 Leave a comment

…..Last night, I was rooting, of course, for Gary Johnson to break that 5% barrier. But, as between Obama and Romney, I favored the former. I did so for precisely the same reasons as I supported Obama vis a vis McCain in 2008: foreign policy.

My fear was that if elected, Romney would start a war with China, Iran, and who knows who else. In contrast, Obama had four years to do that, and refrained. Another reason: at least we can trust Obama to be the socialist, interventionist, moderate war-monger that he has proven himself to be. In contrast, with Romney, he has been on every side of every issue; you just can’t trust that man to cleave to any principle. Also, I’ll never forgive Romney for what he did to my man, Ron Paul. Yes, yes, Romney might have been better on economic policy than Obama.

Should our federal government be big and “green” or small and frugal? That question is likely to be at the heart of the final debate of the 2012 presidential campaign, when candidates Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party meet in an election eve debate between “alternative candidates” for president.

…..How do we drive large-scale change during moments of crisis? How do we use this election to do so? Well, voting third party or even just honestly portraying Obama’s policy architecture is a good way to identify to ourselves and each other who actually has the integrity to not cave to bullying….

We need to put ourselves into the position to be able to run the government.

After all, if a political revolution came tomorrow, could those who believe in social justice and climate change actually govern?

***

[If we had had more courage, we could have] reorganized our politics. Instead the oligarchs took control, because we weren’t willing to face them down when we needed to show courage. So now we have the worst of all worlds, an inevitably worse crisis and an even more authoritarian structure of governance.

A vote for one of these candidates is a vote against the plutocracy

Third Party Presidential Debate Moderated by Larry King

Four alternative candidates for president of the United States debated Tuesday night in Chicago and agreed America needs a good dose of what they could provide ~ clear, straight talk that has not been market-pasteurized. Jill Stein and Gary Johnson were very effective. Video

It’s still fabrications, showbiz and entertainment for the two prime candidates of the Plutocracy and as an example the drama “SEAL Team Six,” about the raid that ‘ supposedly ‘ killed Osama bin Laden, was edited to give a starring role to the president. It will be shown on television two days before the election. See article ~

And as you probably already suspected ~ Obama care is a total scam and most definitely not what Main Street wanted ~ but here are the funny and illuminating details in two hilarious minutes 2 minute Video:

Back to the debates~ Paul Craig Roberts correctly writes in his must read article In Amerika There Will Never Be A Real Debate ~ ” You would never know that US citizens can now be imprisoned and executed without due process…What is the process to vote when the outcome is the same ? Both candidates represent the interests of Israel ~ not the interests of the United States. Both candidates represent the interests of the military/security complex, agribusiness, the offshoring corporations, the suppression of unions and workers, the total demise of civil liberty and the US Constitution ~ which is the way of unbridled executive power… In the US today, the power of money rules. Nothing else is in the equation. Why vote to lend your support to the continuation of your own exploitation? ”

Libertarians Should Vote For… (“…Ron Paul supporters that are now mostly split between Johnson and not voting at all…”)

October 22, 2012 7 comments

In yet another appeal from Republicans, Brady Cremeens, writing for The Right Sphere, is urging libertarians to set aside their differences and vote for Mitt Romney. The piece is so full of political clichés about “American prosperity and strength,” how destructive another Obama term would be, and how Romney “gives us the chance” to save the republic, that I got half way through it before realizing he wasn’t writing tongue-in-cheek. It seems he actually believes what he writes, or at least makes a pretty decent attempt to convince us that he’s serious.

I’m certainly not the first to point this out, but it’s important to note how utterly disrespectful the Republican party and many of its members treated the very group they are now pleading with to vote for their candidate. I’d like to believe that had they not excluded Ron Paul voters, used police violence against them, changed party rules ex post facto, and employed other dishonest tactics, that libertarians would still have rejected the GOP. But assuming they (the GOP) weren’t so bent on repressing the libertarians, they might not be so desperate for their support now.

Larry King To Moderate Third Party Candidate Debates

 

Larry King, the celebrated talk show host accustomed to A-list interview guests, has agreed to moderate a debate featuring a squad of minor-party presidential candidates.

The former CNN giant will guide next Tuesday’s debate in Chicago, which will be broadcast on the Internet. The candidates taking part are the Libertarian Party‘s Gary Johnson, the Green Party’s Jill Stein, the Constitution Party‘s Virgil Goode and the Justice Party’s Rocky Anderson.

 

King told The Associated Pressthat it’s clear none of them will win, but he said they all deserve a voice in the presidential race. Democrats and Republicans are keeping tabs on Johnson and Goode, two ex-Republicans who could be factors in key battleground states.

Most informed, decent Americans realize that we as a nation are faced this election with a choice that is entirely unthinkable on the one hand (Barack Obama), and profoundly unacceptable on the other (Mitt Romney), for President of the United States.

 

We can all agree — as moral conservatives — about the first choice. It’s the second that divides us.

 

Some of us have resigned ourselves to the now-cliché “lesser of two evils” rationalization and are planning to support Romney for purely pragmatic reasons: “Obama’s got to go, and Mitt is our only realistic hope of stopping the radical communist.”

 

gophum

gophum (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)

 

Some of us instead are third-party supporters who are aligned with someone like Ron Paul (as a write-in), Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party, or Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party, in the hope of influencing public policy (if not the outcome of the election itself). And some of us are platform-minded Republicans who support the unifying published principles of the GOP, but can’t tolerate the thought of voting for Mitt Romney — who is arguably the most liberal-socialistic (not to mention opportunistic) Republican nominee ever, despite his feigned conservatism, and who, by the way, has distanced himself from the party platform.

Do the debates unfairly shut out third parties?

October 15, 2012 14 comments

The presidential and vice presidential debates are sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates, a nonprofit corporation that mandates that a candidate have at least 15 percent support in national polls to participate.

 

English: Gary E. Johnson

English: Gary E. Johnson (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

Since the CPD took over running the debates in 1988, only once has a third party candidate been allowed to participate: In 1992, when Ross Perot joined Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush on the debate stage.

 

The dominance of the two major parties at the debates has critics charging that the system is effectively rigged to shut out other voices. Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party nominee for president and former New Mexico governor, has sued on anti-trust grounds to be included this year. The CPD, he said in an interview, is designed “to protect the interests of Republicans and Democrats.”

…..”I don’t know how anybody could be against transparency,” Paul said during debate on the bill, arguing that the American people have a right to know the details of the Fed’s rescue deals and its support of foreign central banks.

“It’s time that we stood up to the Federal Reserve that right now acts like some kind of high, exalted priesthood, unaccountable to democracy,” Rep. Dennis Kucinich, (D-Ohio) charged during the House debate.

A companion bill in the Senate has been introduced by Paul’s son Rand, a Kentucky Republican, though there is little chance of it passing this year.

Libertarian Johnson could help Romney in Nevada

October 13, 2012 Leave a comment

While some may roll their eyes at Libertarian Party presidential nominee and marijuana-legalization champion Gary Johnson, recent polling shows that his presence on the ballot could have an effect on the presidential race, at least in Nevada.

English: Gary E. Johnson

English: Gary E. Johnson (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey released Wednesday found President Barack Obama has a four-point lead over Republican nominee Mitt Romney in Nevada (51-47 percent). But when Johnson is thrown into the mix, the former New Mexico governor garners three percent of the vote, largely pulling voters from Obama.

“When Gary Johnson’s included he gets 3 percent and actually takes mostly from Obama, pulling his lead over Romney down to 48/47,” PPP explained. “That could be something worth keeping an eye on.”

The former New Mexico governor this week took his case for inclusion in the presidential debates to U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. Johnson’s presidential campaign filed an antitrust lawsuit alleging that the Commission on Presidential Debates is colluding with the Republican and Democratic parties to prevent third-party candidates from participating.

 

“It’s antitrust. We’re being excluded by a private organization, and it is fundamentally unfair,” Johnson told the Journal on Friday.

Gary Johnson Gains Support And May Take Ohio Out of Play for Romney

September 28, 2012 3 comments

 

The usual wisdom is that, as election day grows closer, support for third-party candidates tends to shrivel as the voting public heeds the tribal war drums and comes home to Team Red or Team Blue in a ritualistic display of political masochism that could be topped only by the sight of actual hair-shirted flagellants lined up to enter the polling booths.

That third-party shrinkage may not be happening this year, though — or not yet, at least. A new poll from Ohio shows Gary Johnson gaining support, even as press reports emphasize the hold-your-nose-quality in which both major-party candidates marinate, and which may have voters looking elsewhere for options.

At every step, mainstream media attempted to censor information regarding the revolutionary Republican candidate nominee, in some cases even censoring the utterance of his name.

 

The candidate was even ousted from his speaking role at the Republican National Convention last week, where his delegates were thrown to the nosebleed seats of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, and where he faced, still, further persecution as the Romney campaign’s lawyer, Ben Ginsberg, presented a vote to change party rules concerning the binding of delegates, the outcome of which was later revealed to have been predetermined.

Gary Johnson–Libertarian for President-Proven Budget Cutter From New Mexico

July 24, 2012 1 comment

English: Gary E. Johnson (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

We met up with Gary Johnson, former governor of New Mexico and present Libertarian candidate for President. Gary was a former governor of New Mexico. During his two terms in office, of an overwhelmingly Democrat state, he vetoed 750 bills and exercised thousands of line item vetos. He was so effective that his opposition referred to him as Governor Veto. He ran for the Republican nomination this year, but he was kept out of the early debates by CNN and CNBC rules, which were created to keep out minor candidates.

 

 

As a result, he never attained the status of serious candidate as far as the Main Stream Media was concerned.

Devvy Kidd — End the Violence, Legalize all Drugs – A Pipe Dream

There has been a major push in this country for many years to legalize all drugs – especially by Libertarians and two presidential candidates, U.S. Rep. Ron Paul and Gary Johnson (who dropped out early on):

“During a “lightning round” where candidates were asked to answer questions about the issues that would give them the most problems during the primaries, both libertarian candidates– Paul and former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson– were asked to defend their liberal stances on drugs. First was Rep. Paul, who Fox’s Chris Wallace confronted with his controversial position that drugs and prostitution should be legalized. His unapologetic response elicited cheers from the crowd, as he argues that, just as “you don’t have the First Amendment so you could talk about the weather,” civil liberties do not exist to protect personal rights upon which most agree.

Speaking to Australia Financial News Network (AFNN) December 23, Rogers said: “The problems are going to continue to get worse until someone solves the basic underlying problem of too much spending and too much debt.”

He sees the biggest risk to global growth in 2012 as “too much debt…too much consumption…and the central bank in the US which keeps printing money.”

Rogers, seen as one of the world’s most successful investors, highlighted the scale of the problem to his host: The problem is that the measures America needs [to solve the crisis] would cause huge pain for a while, but, if we don’t take our pain now, and we wait until the market forces the pain on us, then it’s going to be systemic collapse.”

Refusing to get drawn into US politics, Rogers nevertheless provided a tacit endorsement: “Gary Johnson and Ron Paul seem to understand the problems that are facing America,” he said.

Romney Has Shovel-ready Rhetoric for Schools

Romney Has Shovel-ready Rhetoric for Schools: Consider:

(READER RESPONSE: Gunny G…)

All politicians (R & Ds) should be seen as “flush-ready” at all times.

We spend too much time and thought on poly-tiks and their operators. Remember Cong David Crockett’s quote on poly-tiks.

“Blond” vindication: Megyn Kelly AND Shannon Bream to ask questions at Thursday’s FOX/GOP debate

“Blond” vindication: Megyn Kelly AND Shannon Bream to ask questions at Thursday’s FOX/GOP debate:

Well, at least ALL attention Thursday night won’t be focused on deciding who has better hair..Perry or Romney..FOX has decided to “promote” two of its stable of blond bombshells…Megyn Kelly AND Shannon Bream to ask questions of the candidates, along with Chris Wallace. The always capable Brett Baier will host and moderate.

Perhaps the suits at FOX are attempting to atone for their inane decision to include Gary Johnson on the stage..as if that’s what we really need..another distraction from a serious debate among the major candidates. Hey, why not Buddy Roehmer?……………………………

Ron Paul’s Vice Presidential Choices by Walter Block and Steve Berger

Andrew Napolitano. The Judge has a print and electronic record a mile long. And, he keeps hitting home runs; no Gary Johnson, he. Judge Napolitano is a charismatic, telegenic presence who is always willing to stand up to the Fox News neo-nuts clamor for war-mongering and Wall Street bailouts. With a Paul/Napolitano ticket, the Republicans would finally have a team that has read, understood, and would honor the original intent of the Constitution. This includes reducing the power of the imperial presidency, engaging in wars for only self-defense purposes, not imperialism, ensuring that Congress declares them, freeing up the economy and promoting personal liberty and responsibility. In any one-on-one debate, Napolitano would overwhelm Biden.

Rand Paul. There have been father and son presidents in the past. The Adamses and the Bushes come to mind. Well, let’s forget the latter duo, please. There has never been a father son pair running for President and Vice President at the same time, however. Well, there is thus a case for breaking that particular pattern. A Paul-Paul Republican ticket would be unique, and attract global attention on that ground alone. It would certainly lay to rest any fears about Ron Paul’s age; should he, God forbid, perish in office, there would be another Paul immediately ready to step into the breach. (Not that this is a reasonable fear: the present authors bet that Dr. Ron Paul could beat any of his competitors for the Republican nomination in any reasonable test of strength or endurance. A former track runner, Congressman Paul could run rings around any of them. However, we make a concession here: if there were a pie-eating contest, our money would be on Newt Gingrich). One more reason for a Rand Paul Vice Presidential run: think of how that would upset the Republican hierarchy!…………………….

The Reagan Libertarian Contract with America

September 24, 2010 1 comment

A Detailed and Specific Plan to Save the U.S. Economy

“If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism.” — Ronald Reagan

I am a proud Reagan Libertarian. Ronald Reagan turned the worst economic slump since the Great Depression into the greatest economic turnaround and expansion in world history with one simple stroke of genius — the largest tax cut in U.S. history ultimately reducing top marginal tax rates from 70% down to 28%.

That tax cut benefited and motivated the groups that produce virtually all of the jobs and tax revenues in Americasmall business owners and taxpayers.

These are the very groups that President Obama chooses to punish, instead of reward.

Obama redistributes money from taxpayers and small business owners to his voters — who create virtually nothing, pay almost no taxes, create no jobs, and ask for handouts and entitlements from cradle to grave.

In short, Obama’s voters are bankrupting this once great country. This is precisely why the U.S. economy has fallen off a cliff. We are staring at the abyss — economic Armageddon, chronic massive unemployment, and worldwide depression.

It is time for dramatic measures to stave off disaster, deficit, debt and depression.

“I don’t believe in a government that protects us from ourselves.” – Reagan has taken to using the term “libertarian” (or “libertarian-conservative”) to describe his political philosophy”

Inside Ronald Reagan

A Reason Interview

July 1975 Print Edition

“I don’t believe in a government that protects us from ourselves.”

Those of us concerned about liberty have had good reason of late to be interested in Ronald Reagan. Increasingly, California’s former governor has been turning up in first place among Republican figures in political opinion polls, among Independents as well as Republicans. In addition, in recent months Reagan has taken to using the term “libertarian” (or “libertarian-conservative”) to describe his political philosophy. All of which naturally made us interested in taking a closer look at the man and his ideas. Thanks to the efforts of the late Ned Hutchinson (a former Reagan aide), REASON was able to obtain time out of Reagan’s busy schedule for him to be interviewed by Editor Manuel S. Klausner.
