You have my vote EV.
I’ve always liked you, now I have more reasons.
God be with you.
Well then how about you let everyone know your own positions, and why we should vote for you.
Rather than resorting to the tired old meme of constantly criticizing Romney.
Thanks in advance.
Go read Tom’s website and you’ll see the contrast between him and Mitt-Witt in no uncertain terms.
I’m not questioning his positions.
I’m just getting tired of wading through 24/7 hatred against Mitt Romney.
Seriously. The election is 168 days from today.
It’s time to start focusing on defeating Obama. Then we can fight amongst ourselves, and get a real president in 2016.
I’ll start, by suggesting Sarah Palin.
But first things first.
I would suggest you read post number one on the thread.
God Bless you for your forthright, determined positions and for having the courage to undertake this campaign!
I have just finished reading the Wikipedia page for America's Party. Good stuff!!
As a registered Independent voter all my life I heartily applaud your worthy addition to the otherwise insupportable candidates and platforms of the two Big Government Parties. I have voted Third Party fairly often in the past and have sworn this year (numerous times, check my posting history) that I will write in Sarah Palin unless a suitable third party appears.
So naturally you have attracted my attention.
I'm a resident of NY State (upstate, in the Finger Lakes region). Do you expect to be on the ballot here in November?
Thanks in advance, and Godspeed!
But here, I’ll make it easy for you:
We’re One Nation Under God.
The first sworn duty of every officer of government is to protect the God-given, unalienable rights to life, liberty, and private property of every person, from creation to natural death.
The God-given institution of one man-one woman marriage and the natural family must be protected.
The right of the people to Keep and Bear Arms shall not be infringed.
Our national sovereignty, security, and borders must be defended.
Our republican form of representative self-government must be adhered to.
The oath of office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States must be fulfilled.
I also support the Platform of America’s Party.
As a free citizen of the United States I stand in agreement with the founders of our American Republic. Following their example, I declare to the world that my first governmental premise is the self-evident truth that our rights to life, liberty and private property come from our Creator God and are therefore unalienable. With those patriots, I understand that just government can only exist by the consent of the governed.
My pledge is to seek to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. I will diligently work to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity, and thereby fulfill the stated purposes of the Constitution of the United States, and the political organizations with which I find common cause.
In recognition of the multitude of ways in which our nations leaders have departed from Americas founding principles, I hereby petition local, state and federal government for redress of such grievances, with the urgent imperative demand that each and every officer of government henceforth faithfully perform their sworn duty to defend innocent human life and constitutional republican governance.
My work is dedicated to my God; to all the patriots who came before us in self-sacrifice for liberty; to all of those who now faithfully serve our country; and to the posterity that will enjoy the blessed fruit of all their labors.
Together, as Americans, let us find the principled grounds for cooperation that will allow us to fully restore moral government of, by, and for the people.
E pluribus unum.
I have as my goal the return of our nation to a set of foundational principles. I call them “America’s Principles.” The word “principle” comes from a Latin root that means “first things.” America’s Principles are the “first things” that our country should consider in all of our domestic and foreign policies.
I recognize that these “first things” are clearly defined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.
However, I also believe that there is room for debate over prudential policy matters within certain parameters of fundamental American political thought and a framework of ordered liberty. I seek a return to an approach to government that facilitates that respectful and necessary debate, but that never compromises the moral premises that made this country great.
Our civic duties
Though in civic terms I call myself “Independent,” I fully acknowledge our utter dependence, as individuals and as a nation, on Almighty God and His divine Providence and Protection.
I also recognize, and seek to actively fulfill, my God-ordained obligations as an individual citizen to the whole sovereign body of the people, as well as my responsibility to maintain standards of high moral character, both personally and in my public life.
The imperative duty to protect Life
I have publicly pledged that all governmental policies I endorse will be in complete accord with the principles and purposes stated below. I have also pledged to henceforth offer my endorsement or financial support only to other political leaders and organizations who live up to these principles.
The Equal Protection for Posterity Resolution
A Resolution affirming vital existing constitutional protections for the unalienable right to life of every innocent person, from the first moment of creation until natural death.
WHEREAS, The first stated principle of the United States, in its charter, the Declaration of Independence, is the assertion of the self-evident truth that all men are created equal, and that they are each endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, beginning with the right to life, and that the first purpose of all government is to defend that supreme right; and
WHEREAS, The first stated purposes of We the People of the United States in our Constitution are to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity; and
WHEREAS, The United States Constitution, in the Fourteenth Amendment, imperatively requires that all persons within the jurisdictions of all the States be afforded the equal protection of the laws; and
WHEREAS, The United States Constitution, in the Fifth and the Fourteenth Amendments, explicitly forbids the taking of the life of any innocent person; and
WHEREAS, The practices of abortion and euthanasia violate every clause of the stated purposes of the United States Constitution, and its explicit provisions; and
WHEREAS, Modern science has demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt that the individual human persons physical existence begins at the moment of biological inception or creation; and
WHEREAS, All executive, legislative and judicial Officers in America, at every level and in every branch, have sworn before God to support the United States Constitution as required by Article VI of that document, and have therefore, because the Constitution explicitly requires it, sworn to protect the life of every innocent person;
THEREFORE, WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES HEREBY RESOLVE that the God-given, unalienable right to life of every innocent person, from biological inception or creation to natural death, be protected everywhere within every state, territory and jurisdiction of the United States of America; that every officer of the judicial, legislative and executive departments, at every level and in every branch, is required to use all lawful means to protect every innocent life within their jurisdictions; and that we will henceforth deem failure to carry out this supreme sworn duty to be cause for removal from public office via impeachment or recall, or by statutory or electoral means, notwithstanding any law passed by any legislative body within the United States, or the decision of any court, or the decree of any executive officer, at any level of governance, to the contrary.
The reason for being of government, and of the Hoefling-Ellis 2012 campaign
The protection of the life, liberty, and private property of the people is the primary reason for the existence of human government, and more particularly, our precious American republican form of self-government. This is why I willingly accept no breach of the rights of the free exercise of religion, free speech, free press, free assembly, free association, and the right to petition government for the redress of grievances. I defend all of the enumerated rights listed in our Bill of Rights, and, in addition, all natural rights that are not enumerated, as per the Ninth Amendment.
The Right to Keep and Bear Arms
The right of self-preservation and self-protection is inherent in all persons, communities and societies, which is why I fiercely defend the indispensable provisions of our Second Amendment. Liberty cannot be protected if the people have been stripped of the physical means of doing so.
Private Property Rights
Private property, the ownership of the means of production by the people, is a cornerstone of American liberty. Without it our free enterprise system, our free markets, and our republican form of self-government cannot endure. Without it, we cannot prosper. That is why I will defend against any trespass against this most basic, cherished, and necessary of our God-given, unalienable rights. That is why I will only pursue policies that will strengthen the economic position of the individual, the family, and the local community.
Restoring limited government
I seek to restore the intended balance between the three separate branches of our government, and to strictly limit government to the Enumerated Powers granted and expressed by the will of the people of the United States in our Constitution.
All existing functions of the Executive branch that are outside of those Enumerated Powers must be eliminated.
All spending and regulation by the Legislative branch that lies outside the Enumerated Powers must cease.
Judges who attempt to legislate from the bench, or who abandon the clear principles of our Constitution, must be checked if liberty and justice are to prevail in our society once again.
I demand a return to adherence to the provisions of the Tenth Amendment: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Peace through Strength
I believe in a supremely strong, prepared, and well-equipped civilian-controlled United States military, and a bold, visionary and intelligent program of principled constructive engagement with the rest of the world. For me, “peace through strength” is not a mere slogan. It is the means of survival for our country in a very dangerous and often hostile world. Our friendship should be a sought-after possession of all men and women of good will everywhere in the world. Our enmity should be something that all rightfully fear.
As Ronald Reagan opposed and defeated the designs and desire of the Soviet Union to dominate the world and place it under the tyranny of their Evil Empire, I stand unalterably opposed to all who approve of, plan or commit terrorist acts. Since the first principle of America is the protection of innocent human life, any who would use acts of terrorism targeted at innocent civilians to forward their political, ideological or religious aims incur my effective and determined enmity.
I completely oppose any action that surrenders the moral, political or economic sovereignty of the United States and its people, and demand the immediate restoration of that sovereignty wherever it has been eroded.
I demand the immediate securing and continuous vigilant maintenance of our sovereign territory and borders. I oppose any private or governmental action that rewards illegal entry into the United States in any way, and demand speedy and full enforcement of our laws concerning all such activities.
Repeal of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Amendments
I consider the federal income tax to be destructive of our liberty, privacy, and prosperity. Therefore, I am working to bring about its complete elimination and the repeal of the Sixteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I recommend that the current system be replaced by an equitable, simple, noninvasive, visible, efficient tax, one that does not destroy or even infringe upon our economic privacy and liberty.
I also call for the repeal of the Seventeenth Amendment. Its enactment greatly reduced the power of our state legislatures and state governments which are much closer to the people and damaged our system of federalism.
Marriage and the natural family
I seek the passage of a Federal Marriage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and oppose all attempts everywhere to redefine marriage as being anything but what it has always been: the union of one man and one woman. Since the natural family is the basic God-given institution of our civilization, and the nursery of our future, it must be protected from all who would destroy it.
Americas Principles work
I believe that America’s principles work whenever the people diligently put them into practice.
So, I invite all like-minded Americans to join in the fight to restore moral, constitutional, self-government in Liberty.
By the grace of God, together, we can deliver a free, secure, and prosperous republic to our Posterity.
The Platform above is a personalized derivation of the Americas Party Platform, of which I am the original primary author.
Mind if I ask please, this is without agenda (other than the obvious), and meant as an honest question.
What please are your thoughts about Sarah Palin? Feel free to go into as much detail as possible. What you think about her VP candidacy in 2008. What you think about her sliming at the hands of every liberal and Mitt Romney functionary in America, beginning about 30 minutes after McCain announced her selection.
What you think about her current role, and would you select her as your running mate?
Thanks in advance.
You Romaniacs wetting your pants crack me up! I’m reminded of the couple shopping for a new car. They drive onto the lot in their old junker. The wife is so sick of the no AC, sagging springs, worn rings blowing smoke, etc, that when a salesman walks up she says,
“Whatever you’ve got—we’ll take it! Whatever you want, we’ll pay!” leaving the husband flabbergasted.
No shopping, negotiating terms, price, financing. Just:
“Shut up dear and sign on the line!”
I’ve lived it. The first nice car my wife and I ever considered buying. I wasn’t happy with the car, and made that clear. I was ready to get up and walk away. The salesman got his supervisor. Eventually we hammered out a price.
But you guys, jeez ... Do you all live in your parents’ basements? You don’t go up to a salesman at Sears and say, “I’ll take that fridge there. Now, tell me what you want from me.”
You say, “Conservatives, get on the Romney Love Train! Now! We’re running out of time!” Blah blah blah, rinse, repeat.
There’s nothing said about a quid pro quo, or a `something for something’. All you talk about is unloading the old junker.
Worth repeating, that strategy that I explained above: It only works if you’re ready to get up and walk out/go into the booth and fail to vote for the GOP candidate. Used car salesmen and politicians have radar for a bluff, regardless of how good you think you are. If they don’t believe you, they say, “List price, sorry.” Or, “Yeah we know he supports infanticide but that’s just too bad ... “.
It’s hard to take you series. You say to us, `Trust him.’ and we say to you, ‘No, we want him to put in the platform, to put it in writing’ and then you say, “That’s not gonna happen, that’s too bad. Hey! Why do you want to vote for Obama/keep that old junker?”
It’s the same circular s*** from all of you. Give us a break! Tell your boy to make some serious offers or we’ll stick with Plan B: working for conservatives down ticket.
Now, go clean up your rooms.
Pavlov had nothing on you guys...
Thank you very much for your kind words!
In New York we need 15,000 signatures by August. It’s very doable. Shoot us an email when you get a chance and we’ll get you linked up with other good people around the state.
God bless you.
Its time to start focusing on defeating Obama. Then we can fight amongst ourselves, and get a real president in 2016.
If we elect Romney in 2012, he’ll be the GOP nominee in 2016 as well.
I’ve never been reticent here, or anywhere else, about expressing my disagreements with Governor Palin on critical matters of public policy. I have years worth of posts on FR that deal with those important points of disagreement.
However, last time I checked, she’s not running.
As to her treatment by the liberal media and Mitt Romney, I consider it to have been despicable.
Of course, none of that was the least bit surprising to me, since that is who and what they are.
I can understand why you would think so.
I would posit to the contrary, that your fears are based on seeing the media lick Obama’s boots 24/7/365, and the ensuing brainwashed condition of much of America.
The single point upon which I would base my claim to the contrary is, the media will always, always.
Did I mention the word “always”?
Always, spin to elect democrats. Romney will not have the media acting as his fawning lapdogs. They’ll tear him to pieces. He’ll have less support than George W Bush did after he accused his own base of being “vigilates”, within two years. Romney will not be re-elected. He might make a name for himself, and become part of the solution, but he’ll not win in 2016.
Romney is destined for one term. Might be a good one, might not be. I’m grudgingly finding myself respecting his abilities as a competitor, perhaps he’ll surprize a lot of us, and turn out to be a good president.
But once he’s in office, all bets are off. It’s all Romney-bashing, all the time. From (both) sides of the aisle!!!
Then we can nominate Palin.
