The Fifty State Solution
By Jim Cox
August 20, 2016

*** begin quote ***

Disgusted by the prospect of Hillary Clinton and/or Donald Trump having the power of the presidency? I certainly am. And for full disclosure here, I don’t think any individual should have the powers that have accrued to the president over this country’s development. As has often been stated, “It’s not the abuse of power, it’s the power to abuse” that we should worry about. Even with some substitute candidates we’d still face the power to abuse problem.

*** end quote ***

I am a firm believer in “secession” as a solution to all our political problems.

Of course, unwinding the Federal Gooferment’s knots would be a challenge, if the political elite would permit it. Argh!

Clearly imho Texas, Alaska, Hawaii, Utah, North Dakota, and New Hampshire have substantial support and have taken some steps to facilitate it.

Who will be the first out?

LIBERTY: Could Trump actually bring back freedom and liberty to the USA?

After Brexit, a Trump Path to Victory
By Patrick J. Buchanan
June 28, 2016 

*** begin quote ***

What might a Trumpian policy of Americanism over globalism entail?

A 10 to 20 percent tariff on manufactured goods to wipe out the trade deficit in goods, with the hundreds of billions in revenue used to slash or eliminate corporate taxes in the USA.

Every U.S. business would benefit. Every global company would have an incentive not only to move production here but its headquarters here.

An “America first” immigration policy would secure the border, cut legal immigration to tighten U.S. labor markets, strictly enforce U.S. laws against those breaking into our country, and get tough with businesses that make a practice of hiring people here illegally.

In Europe and America, corporate, financial and political elites are increasingly disrespected and transnationalism is receding. An anti-establishment, nationalist, populist wave is surging across Europe and the USA.

It is an anti-insider, anti-Clinton wave, and Trump could ride it to victory.

*** end quote ***

One can only hope!

Slashing the corporate income tax would lower everyone’s cost of living.

“Corporations are merely tax collectors; not taxpayers. They merely pass their costs along.” Lawrence Alan “Larry” Kudlow is an American economist, television personality, and newspaper columnist. August 26, 2014 0830 on WMAL Mornings on the Mall Brian Wilson and Larry O’Connor

Only real people pay those “corporate” taxes.

I’m sure that the D’s and the R’s won’t cooperate since we all know who pays them off!

LIBERTY: Can join the Army but can’t drink

Bill would allow 18-year-olds to drink in N.H.

*** begin quote *** 

SEABROOK — A Seabrook state representative is seeking to allow limited underage drinking in New Hampshire under the supervision of an adult who is at least 22 years old.

*** end quote ***

Doesn’t this seem a little stupid?

No wonder there’s a Heroin epidemic.

They can’t keep drugs out of prisons or schools.

This is NOT a great concession to the cause of liberty. 

Have a long way to go to freedom and liberty in NH!

LIBERTY: A lot of establishment type hate Trump — a reverse recommendation?

Political Theater on the AirLew Rockwell and Alex Jones on Trump, Hillary, and everything else.
April 20, 2016

# – # – # – # – # 

I used to think that Alex Jones was profiting on the mental illness of Conspiracy Theories.

Now I am not so sure.

Lew and Alex brought up a great point. 

Trump may be a closet libertarian. Operative words “may be”. They gave the following evidence: (1) He wants to avoid war with Russia; (2) He seems to think NATO is obsolete; and (3) he’s has a lot of non-libertarian enemies.

I thought the third was most powerful. 

The guy sure has the “Establishment” shorts in a knot. 

Have to go back to the Republican Rockefeller Establishment stealing the nomination from “Mr. Republican” Bob Taft and give it to the Rockefeller Republican Dwight Eisenhower. 

Argh!

Perhaps the “theft” of this nomination would be a good thing to wake up “We, The Sheeple”?

LIBERTY: The REALID database is like the Social Security Number

The IRS could Stop You From Flying. Here’s How…

*** begin quote ***

Then there’s the matter of whether Real IDs will actually be, well, real. Proponents say the high-tech identity documents produced under the initiative will be tamperproof and nearly impossible to counterfeit.

But this claim is a bald-faced lie. We need to look no farther than the newest generation of US passports – those equipped with a supposedly tamperproof radio frequency ID (RFID) chip similar to the one inserted into all Real ID compliant driver’s licenses. Hackers have shown it’s almost child’s play to clone an RFID passport. Is it too much to imagine that clever hackers will similarly find a way to hack Real IDs?

But the most threatening aspect of the Real ID initiative is its creation of the equivalent of a national database to include details on 250 million licensed drivers. Each state must provide electronic access to the information contained in its motor vehicle database to all other states.

Stopping REALID is a very important to our liberty!

LIBERTY: The FCC is another unconstitutional out-of-control Gooferment appendage

FCC Expands it’s Powers Over the Internet
By Jason Stapleton –  Apr 1, 2016

*** begin quote ***

I remember when I first warned about the FCC’s talks about regulating the internet. I took more heat for my position on that issue than any other issue we’ve discussed.  I, of course, warned everyone that this was not, as the FCC suggested, an effort to “keep the internet free” but rather was a massive power grab by the government to regulate an industry it had no business overseeing.

*** end quote ***

Jason (correctly) points out the abuses and corruption of the FCC.

First, they are immune to Congressional oversight of their budget because they fund themselves out of the “fees” and “fines” that they themselves “legislates”. 

Second, they are “regulating” to “keep the internet free”. “barbara streisand”!

Third, they play the poor and children as proxies for their “bleeding heart” liberalism.

Argh!

No one “needs” the FCC!

It’s an unconstitutional infringement.

Argh!

LIBERTY: Proper role of Gooferment

What IS the Role of Government?
By Jason Stapleton –  Mar 30, 2016

*** begin quote ***

Now to be fair Trump did say that his top three were security, security, security but let’s not kid ourselves, that was a cop out, and he went on to say that healthcare and education were very important. I wonder if he can show me where in the list of enumerated powers he finds healthcare and education listed.

*** end quote ***

While I am NOT a Trump fan, he may well be the “prettiest nag in the glue factory corral”.

It’s clear that NONE of the Republican or Democrat candidates have a clue about the proper role. 

(Spoiler alert: It’s the protection of life, liberty, and property. Equal opportunity; not equal outcomes. A level playing field where everyone can be their “best” and be secure in their “papers and property”!)

Even some of the Libertarian Party candidates get it wrong. (See they think to win they have to not be too “out there”.)

Ron Paul was 99% of a great candidate but he was labeled “crazy”.

SOoo instead, “We, The Sheeple” get more war, more welfare, more Gooferment, more “laws”, more “regulations”, more “diktats”, and more unacceptable behavior by politicians and bureaucrats!

Really, Hillary’s email, Bernie’s “free college”, and on and on and on.

Time to put a stop to the whole merry-go-round.

How?

Just refuse to consent.

Look at the “respect” that the average motorist has for “speed limits”.

It’s the reason that Alcohol Prohibition ended. “We, The Sheeple” stopped cooperating at the jury box and the ballot box.

So remember, “no victim; no crime” if you get on a jury.

And, every time you vote, make a statement!

p.s., Who said: “If  nominated, I will not run. If elected, I will not serve.”?
