Another woman jumps into race for president (This is for the guys)
WND ^ | 11/4/11 | Joe Kovacs

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."

This campaign won't go anywhere. But, this woman has all the right stuff, eh guys?

"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!"

I'm sorry I used to work for this woman. She made me feel very uncomfortable so i filed a sexual harassment suit but due to a confidentially agreement, I cannot talk about the details.

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.

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.

She's looking to abolish all current taxes and institute a federal 2 percent point-of-purchase consumption tax she believes will create millions of jobs.

"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...?

I have come to despise this party. Not that it doesn't stand for some good things that I agree with. What frustrates me about it is that it perpetually runs a slate of 3rd party candidates in Nevada that siphons votes off of viable conservative Republican candidates. They rarely win any races at all (maybe never), but they are always there to smugly attack any Republican who runs. Their efforts inevitably help the Democrat candidates. Case in point, Nevada almost got rid of Harry Reid a couple election cycles back. He won reelection by less than 600 votes.

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.

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.

Like I said, that was a post for the guys who would likely find interest in an educated woman who loves NASCAR and hamburgers. I doubt she will make a dent in the vote count.

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.

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.

From the article:

“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.
