As many here know, I'm the 2012 presidential nominee of America's Party, and like all leaders in our party, at every level, I recognize the personhood of the child in the womb and their protection by the explicit, imperative requirements of the U.S. Constitution.

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.

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.

Hi Tom,

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:


I believe...

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.

http://www.selfgovernment.us/platform.html


My Platform

Dedication

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 nation’s leaders have departed from America’s 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.

Preface

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 person’s 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.

Sovereignty

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.

America’s 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 America’s 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.

I’m not questioning his positions.

I think EV's positions are pure Constitutional-conservative. He has been a consistent and unwavering FReeper for more than 12 years. (and the fact that EV and I have March 24th as our signup date is a coincidence I'm rather proud of.)

I’m just getting tired of wading through 24/7 hatred against Mitt Romney.

I understand what you're saying. I have to point out however that if there is hatred directed at Mitt Romney, it is Romney himself that is responsible for that, due to his never ending flip-flops, outright lies, and currying favor with whoever and whatever is expedient for his political needs of the moment. Is he better than 0bama? That's like asking if Clyde Barrow is a better human being than John Dillinger, they're both bank robbers! My view of Romney is that while he probably doesn't hate America like 0bama does, he is still a big government statist, a socialist at heart who believes in big federal mandates and directives, as I've said in prior posts, 0bama if re-elected, will continue to pour the bottle of socialism down America's throat, if Romney is elected, we still get force fed the bottle of socialism, but it will be served up in ornate crystal goblets, you know "kinder and gentler II".

I hear the meme all the time about how "if we don't vote for Romney, we're voting to re-elect 0bama" and that is quite frankly, crap: I intend to vote for our fellow FReeper and FRiend Tom Hoefling, if someone tells me I'm wasting my vote, too damn bad for them - I'm voting for someone that I can in all good conscience, support. You (and others) may see it differently, but that is my stand.

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.

Again, I hear what you're saying but let's be honest among ourselves about that "real president in 2016" idea: IF perchance Mitt Romney ends up winning the Presidency this Fall, unless he ends up being even a greater screw-up than 0bama, he will win renomination in 2016 with ease, due to the natural advantages of incumbency, and the likely reluctance for any true conservative (a conservative Republican with some heavy political capital) to challenge a sitting President, especially if that hypothetical President Romney has even made marginal progress at slowing up, if not halting the destruction of our Republic that 0bama has initiated. And even if we take the longer view that we rally around a true conservative for the 2020 election cycle, it will depend greatly upon what Romney's VP does, Vice Presidents are generally a shoe-in for obtaining their Party's nomination, especially if the perception is that their boss has been even a nominal success. Is there an answer at all? I honestly don't know.

I’ll start, by suggesting Sarah Palin.

I have serious doubt that she will ever seek the Presidency. If she were drafted at a brokered convention, there is no telling what could happen.

In the meantime, I'm going to stand with EV.

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!!!

:D

Then we can nominate Palin.

In 2016.

My Heart says NO to this call to break ranks from the Republican Party.

The Republican Party is the Party of Lincoln, under whose leadership the Union was saved, and the slaves freed. We have deep historical roots.

Without that Union, there would have been no force of freedom strong enough to save the world from the expanding grip of totalitarianism that arose in the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's.

What freedom the world enjoys today, was built on the foundation of the Republican Party under Lincoln's leadership, a Party that stood solidly on the deeper bedrock foundation of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

"Don't Give Up the Ship" is a patriot cry that should reach all of our ears today.

Please don't give into the subtle influence of the darkside which can so easily instill in the soul feelings of hopelessness and frustration tempting us mightily to leave our assigned positions on the battlements.

That the forces of darkness, in the form of rebellion against the Laws of God are marching into the Republican Party in unprecedented numbers, does not signal to us that it is time to flee. It signals to us that it is time to stand our ground against, yes, the RomneyZombies.

God's sponsorship is with us as we defend with our lives the foundations he has provided. And with His help we can save the Soul of the Republican Party.

Mitt Romney has no allegiance to any of that. In fact, the positions he takes in this one video clip show him to be the polar opposite of every good thing you’ve described.

Stand firm for the Republican Party if you want. Fight for it. But don’t give the force of your sacred franchise to someone whose entire record and even his current positions on the most crucial public policies are clearly anti-republican.

You have to choose what is more important to you: your republicanism or your Republicanism. Because in 2012 you can’t have both.

I`m one who doesn`t hate Mitt Romney. He did some admirable things in his time, specifically his work in pulling the SLC Olympics out of the fire. But I simply don`t agree with his positions on global warming, abortion (at least that for which he`s on record) and homosexual “marriage.” I don`t buy his supposed recent position changes on those subjects.

He`s just not someone with whom I agree on a host of issues. It`s not hate; rather it`s about policy positions.

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.


Yes EV, don't you know we shouldn't let a man's actual record of Progressive Liberalism and lying about his record and his political opponents get in the way of voting for him.

It's the new Republican way!

EternalVigilance says, "Mitt Romney has no allegiance to any of that. In fact, the positions he takes in this one video clip show him to be the polar opposite of every good thing you’ve described."

Yes, I get that. We are on the same page in that regard.

You might take a look at my latest threads to get a good dose of soul affirmation:

A. WE MUST FIGHT THE
GOOD FIGHT AGAINST
THE INVASION OF THE
REPUBLICAN PARTY BY
THE ROMNEYZOMBIES

B. Willard M. Romney - The
Rat and Horror Connection

C. VOTING FOR ROMNEY
IS TO VOTE FOR THE
DEATH OF AMERICA

EternalVigilance, I think you should came back on board so you can point your own cannons at the real enemy, the pirates that are trying to take over the Flag Ship of the Fleet of Freedom.

We’ve been devoting most of our attention first to the states that are the most difficult.

And NY isn't on that list?????????

Sheesh, they're really slipping.

North Carolina is FAR worse than NY for third parties. It’s virtually impossible for a third party to get on the ballot down here. Doesn’t NY actually have “state” parties like the Conservative Party, actually?

I honestly don’t know. There are a lot of other parties on the ballots but I never paid attention to any but the conservative party and whether or not they were state parties.

Well I’m going to back EV here.

By standing against Palin, he’s ... how to phrase this ... decided for me. I long ago decided Palin represented everything the GOP needs, and I would support her.

That hasn’t changed.

But that doesn’t mean I disagree with, or take issue with EV. It’s just one of those things.

I’m a supporter of Palin from way back.

That’s just the way it is. EV seems like a pretty good guy, actually.

I would not bring up Pavlov.

It is only we anti Romney dogs who are not rising to the Pavlov bait, the same old GOPE/RINO/ROMNEY bone we’re tossed over and over.

I would rethink who it is, actually, seen rising to those ridiculous commands.

I hope I can prove to be worthy of your vote.

Thanks.

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.

I’m not saying that he’d be reelected just that he’ll be renominated.

The Republican Party is the Party of Lincoln, under whose leadership the Union was saved, and the slaves freed. We have deep historical roots.

At present, the Republican Party is the Party of Boehner, McConnell and Romney, under whose leadership it abets the Democrat Party in subverting the same liberty it once strove to protect.

Without that Union, there would have been no force of freedom strong enough to save the world from the expanding grip of totalitarianism that arose in the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's.

Today's Republican Party appears willing to gamble away that strength through budget 'agreements' that do not have significant impact on any spending except the defense budget.

What freedom the world enjoys today, was built on the foundation of the Republican Party under Lincoln's leadership, a Party that stood solidly on the deeper bedrock foundation of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

The Republican Party was not founded by Abraham Lincoln.

"Don't Give Up the Ship" is a patriot cry that should reach all of our ears today.

Agreed. However, the ship has given up on us.

Please don't give into the subtle influence of the darkside which can so easily instill in the soul feelings of hopelessness and frustration tempting us mightily to leave our assigned positions on the battlements.

And who 'assigns' us these positions? Whose orders do we follow, forsaking our better judgment and Christian principles to support those who work to subvert our ideals at every turn?

Do the elites 'assign' us? Our betters in Washington who have given us the least palatable Presidential candidate in our modern history, replete with Congressional leaders with so little backbone as to become laughingstocks to the people they are elected to serve?

That the forces of darkness, in the form of rebellion against the Laws of God are marching into the Republican Party in unprecedented numbers, does not signal to us that it is time to flee. It signals to us that it is time to stand our ground against, yes, the RomneyZombies.

It does not, however, signal to us that we must support the forces of darkness with our vote.

God's sponsorship is with us as we defend with our lives the foundations he has provided. And with His help we can save the Soul of the Republican Party.

I trust you are a Christian. You therefore are surely cognizant of the concept of free will. He who will be saved must first, of his own free will, accept salvation. It is painfully clear that the Republican Party has chosen the path that leads away from salvation. In fact, it can be argued that in many states, at the local level, the Republican Party is now closer to Libertarian control in the form of Paul supporters than it is to conservative control.

The Republican Party has left us. It is time for a renaissance.

I sincerely doubt your support of Palin, given your support of Romney.

It's like oil and water since Romney is a Progressive Liberal and Palin is a Tea-Party conservative.

I do diverge from EV on Palin, but on the issues and his record, he much more in line with conservative thought than Romney is exactly because of Romney's lying, left-wing, Progressive Record that you don't seem to want to hear about.

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.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^ This

I don't think Mittens is first choice for any of us, But the alternative unthinkable, 4 more years of OBOZO will make this country unrecognizable if it exits at all
