Skip to comments.Another woman jumps into race for president (This is for the guys)
Posted on 11/05/2011 8:08:28 AM PDT by Baynative
Laurie Roth from Washington state is running not as a Republican, but as a self-described patriot and conservative on the American Independent Party ticket. She says she's already on the ballot in California, and will take steps to make sure her name is listed in the other 49 states.
Another pledge by Roth is to become totally energy independent in four years.
"America will be the largest exporter of energy in the world," says Roth. "Disconnect from OPEC. Employ 20 million people in energy infrastructure jobs [including] natural gas, oil, nuclear, solar and alternative fuels."

"Roth is a singer/songwriter with five CD albums to her credit, with one track landing her on Billboard's top 40 and on the cover of Cash Box Magazine. She also holds a Ph.D. in counseling and a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
"She is equally at home on horseback or motorcycle and enjoys scuba diving. She loves to watch NASCAR Nextel Cup Racing and has always liked vintage cars. Her favorite food is ... well ... just a hamburger, but with the works!"
Since she is a NASCAR fan...
no, need for pictures. wtf, do you get a cut on the clicks that you send to the source site?
Wow. Yeah, she is definitely not guilty.
Dr. Laurie, eh? Singer, Black Belt...independent thinker?
Clearly not qualified ;-)
Shees. The left is holding this country underwater trying to drown it. Our survival is at stake.
Can we PLEASE leave sex appeal out of it?
Are we really this adolescent that it makes any difference?
I’d rather look at a Ben Franklin-looking TRUE conservative than some “sexy” woman described as both a singer-songwriter and political activist.
A step above what we have now.
I've never heard of her but she IS a step above what we have now if she can walk on 2 feet and she has a life span.
Great, another talk radio host thinking they can run the country.
Don't be a killjoy.
Even as the Titanic sank into the icy waters of the north Atlantic on a cold April night nearly one hundred years ago, the band kept playing.
So, let 'em have their fun - if we're going to go down, at least, let's go down fighting, singing, and having fun.
What is the platform of the American Independant Party?
If the Republicans nominate one of the Romney/Perry twins there are people evaluating who to write in.
I totally agree! Life is way too short, not to be silly.
"No group will be exempt," she says, claiming annual collected revenues would be in the range of $10 to $20 trillion, "while citizens are liberated from massive, controlling tax oppression."
Interesting math here. Isn't the total gross domestic product $14.6 billion? How do you tax even $10 trillion out of that?
14.7 trillion for 2010, but still hard to see revenues of $10 trillion. Sales taxes can increase revenues beyond what you might think possible because of the velocity of money (spent several times a year), however with no national sales tax...?
If she's the least bit serious, she better get herself onto a serious server.

In other words, let the juvenile boys be juvenile boys.
TRUE Tax...taxing stock and bond trades...It seems to be a great idea to me. The problem is the details are in a book I will not buy.
I don’t care who you are, that’s funny right there!
The 2010 GDP was $14.58 trillion. However, she indicates a desire for a 2% transaction tax on retail sales. Total retail sales in the US for 2010 were roughly $4.35 trillion. A 2% tax would only generate $87.1 billion on those retail sales.
Economics are, obviously, not this woman's strong subject - Hell, basic math either for that matter.
I’m not questioning the form of tax, I am questioning her revenue estimates. $10-20 trillion a year? Having a tax rate near or above the current GDP doesn’t make sense.
She will have a hard time beating old Bruce Gidner, sr. http://www.votesmart.org/election/2012/P/NA
Oh come on, not even a quick peek?
It's a different party. The "IAP," or "Independent American Party" in Nevada is a Constitution Party affiliate. The American Independent Party is only in California and as far as I know currently has no national affiliation.
Hey! No dissing singer/songwriters and political activists, please! We are fully capable of being intelligent patriots, too.
[Just teasing, kind of... I get your point, though - looks don’t matter, character and substance do.] :)
No snark interned but all we have had for the last 50 years of my life are politician who think they can run the Country.
I don't need to point out the result of that.....
Our job is to get out there and find new voters, disinterested people who don't vote and those who are disillusioned with Obama. If we spend our time sniping on websites where we are preaching to the choir and sending email jokes to our friends, we are doing nothing.
In the last election I converted a long time blue collar democrat to voting conservative and in turn she converted her two daughters. If every FR user made the flip of three voters (which is a 6 vote swing), Obama would not be in the White House.
We can make a difference if we decide to make a difference.
It would tax all forms of gambling...called stock and bond trading. How many world wide are doing it? I think it is based upon the numbers traded yearly. 1% of yearly trade is $10 Trillion, that is the theory.
re: It’s a different party.
I stand corrected. Regardless, both parties sound pretty much the same to me. The effect of both would be the same and my criticism and concerns would stand for the American Independent Party as well.
Stop with the Chicken Little kvetch. Cain will be the next President of the United States.
I don’t believe Onada will be on the ballot—at least not in all states—because he will not be able to prove he’s even eligible to be pres.
Logical replacement will be Biden. Cain will chew Plugs to pieces.
The birth showdown is coming.
Yo, yoyo—Why are talk show hosts automatically unfit to run for president? I’m sure you’re aware Truman was a failed haberdasher. He was a democrat back in the day when country came first and, IMHO, one of our best presidents.
According to you, who is qualified to run for president?
She will fight for Judeo-Christian Values and AGAINST Islamic fundamentalism!!
A net EXPORTER of fuel??? She did forget about one source we have lots of... COAL!!
Sounds like another lib mole like the one who elected the frankenstein monster in Minnesota.
Listen to these freepers. All talks and no actions. Jump to conclusions about some one, male or female, famous or unknown...
Ms. Roth is a woman and right away innuendo of sex...,
She is a well-rounded, smart person and jealousy explodes all over the board in form of ridicules, mockery.
You who are so smart and good at talking, why aren’t you brave enough to run against soetoro/obama? Why do you attack some one who does? Because you want 4 more years of soetoro/obama?
It is precisely because of you incessant talkers who attack people with the courage to act that we don’t have a leader against the soetoror/obama tyrrany!
Have you checked her out on her qualification? No, don’t think so.
Have you ever considered a candidate who dares to challenge obama eligibility will bring the issue to the forefront and force the lamestream and congress to address this issue?
No candidate can do it if all you people can do is sneer and attack he/she who has the courage to do so. We have enough sneers and attacks from obama and gang. Why attack your own?
Obviously a simple typo, as I'm sure you know the GDP for 2010 was $14.6 trillion.
2% of that is $292 billion, and we have a $2 trillion annual budget.
Someone who has experience in how government really works, knows how to get things done, and someone who knows how far they can push to change things, and won't be a laughing stock for their naivety.
Reagan was an actor, but was also a union president and a state governor. His first political job was not POTUS.
If I want an educated woman I want a teacher or a nurse. No deal. PhD in counselling?
Stay away. Stay very far away...
She is in it for the money to make Obama a winner in California
regardless, teacher, nurse or psychologist..
This nation needs some series healing.
any of the above may do just fine compared to what we have now
I though she looked familiar--
Then I realized she is a dead ringer for Paget Brewster... of "Criminal Minds."
Nice looking, good actress but most likely another... liberal pinhead!
Yet that never stopped me... from hitting on one!
Have you taken any psychology in the last 10 years?
It’s a cesspool. I’d want to see her thesis before I’d even take a second look.
about the only thing I’ve taken the last 10 years is aspirin and antibiotics. and beer. :-)
a niece is close to getting her degree,, I wonder how much she’ll charge the family for her services.. oy, do issues galore abound ..
“On her list of issues, she highlights her contention Obama is not even legally eligible to hold the presidency.
“’He has presented a verified forgery of his long-form birth certificate on April 27, 2011,’ she said.”
Dr. Roth is a solid constitutionalist (a.k.a. “birther”) who has invited Dr. Corsi and others at the forefront of articulating Obama’s ineligibility onto her radio program for in-depth interviews.
I expect her attempt to challenge Obama’s eligibility and obtain subpoena's of Obama's original 1961 HI LFBC and rulings on his NBC status being a claimed UK subject at birth using her qualification as a candidate “with standing” consistent with numerous federal court rulings, as some other candidates are doing.
I haven’t seen much to speak well of it. I know one really good psychology professor, but she focusses more on physiology, and the connections between the brain and the rest of the body. Especially with respect to exercise as a form of therapy. It’s an interesting field, that tends to be much more rigorous than Skinner and his minions.
Beyond that, I’m not fond of the discipline. I hope it works well for your neice, but I’ve seen it destroy more families than it has helped.
