The Des Moines Register finally acknowledged I exist today. They pretty much had to.

They characterized this as “a David vs. Goliath race to the extreme.”

They’re right, of course, but, as always, they forget who won that particular fight. :-)

Congratulations Sir, and THANK you!

If you need to bounce an idea off of a red-white-and blue group of Conservative Intellectuals, (pardon the redundancy), please consider us first!

We may not live in Iowa, but lots of us, myself included, have friends and relatives in Iowa.

Back in the day, Radio Announcer Paul Harvey had a quote that may be helpful to you and your Campaign Staff as follows:

“WHEN YOUR OUTGO EXCEEDS YOUR INCOME, YOUR UPKEEP WILL BE YOUR DOWNFALL.”

BTW, use the appropriate arm gestures when delivering this quote in Public.

Congrats.
If you nominate me as VP I have four amendments I'd like to propose and, IIUC, I could do so as President of the Senate:
Tax Reform Amendment Fiscal Responsibility Amendment
Section I
No tax, federal or state, shall ever be withheld from the wages of a worker of any citizen of either.

Section II
No property shall be seized for failure to pay taxes until after conviction in a jury trial; the right of the jury to nullify (and thereby forgive) this debt shall never be questioned or denied.

Section III
The second amendment is hereby recognized as restricting the power of taxation, both federal and state, therefore no tax (or fine) shall be laid upon munitions or the sale thereof.

Section IV
The seventh amendment is also hereby recognized, and nothing in this amendment shall restrict the right of a citizen to seek civil redress.

Section V
No income tax levied by the federal government, the several States, or any subdivision of either shall ever exceed 10%.

Section VI
No income tax levied by the federal government, the several States, or any subdivision of either shall ever apply varying rates to those in its jurisdiction.

Section VII
No retroactive or ex post facto tax (or fee) shall ever be valid.

Section VIII
The congress may not delegate the creation of any tax or fine in any way.

Section IX
No federal employee, representative, senator, judge, justice or agent shall ever be exempt from any tax, fine, or fee by virtue of their position.

Section X
Any federal employee, representative, senator, judge, justice or agent applying, attempting to apply, or otherwise causing the application of an ex post facto or retroactive law shall, upon conviction, be evicted from office and all retirement benefits forfeit.
Section I
The power of Congress to regulate the value of the dollar is hereby repealed.

Section II
The value of the Dollar shall be one fifteen-hundredth avoirdupois ounce of gold of which impurities do not exceed one part per thousand.

Section III
To guard against Congress using its authority over weights and measures to bypass Section I, the ounce in Section II is approximately 28.3495 grams (SI).

Section IV
The Secretary of the Treasury shall annually report the gold physically in its possession; this report shall be publicly available.

Section V
The power of the Congress to assume debt is hereby restricted: the congress shall assume no debt that shall cause the total obligations of the United States to exceed one hundred ten percent of the amount last reported by the Secretary of the Treasury.

Section VI
Any government agent, officer, judge, justice, employee, representative, or congressman causing gold to be confiscated from a private citizen shall be tried for theft and upon conviction shall:
   a. be removed from office (and fired, if an employee),
   b. forfeit all pension and retirement benefits,
   c. pay all legal costs, and
   d. restore to the bereaved twice the amount in controversy.

Section VII
The federal government shall assume no obligation lacking funding, neither shall it lay such obligation on any of the several States, any subdivision thereof, or any place under the jurisdiction of the United States. All unfunded liabilities heretofore assumed by the United States are void.

Section VIII
The federal government shall make all payments to its employees or the several states in physical gold. Misappropriation, malfeasance and/or misfeasance of funds shall be considered confiscation.
Commerce Clause Amendment Senate Reform Amendment
Section I
The federal government shall directly subsidize no product or industry whatsoever, saving the promotion the progress of Science and useful Arts.

Section II
The federal government shall never prescribe nor proscribe what the Several States teach. Neither the federal government nor the several states shall ever deny the right of parents to teach and instruct their children as they see fit.

Section III
The congress may impose tariffs, excise taxes, and customs duties on anything imported or exported, provided that they are applied uniformly and in no manner restrict, subvert, or circumvent the second amendment.

Section IV
No law may impose prohibitions of any sort on the commerce between the several states due to the item itself.
Section I
The seventeenth amendment is hereby repealed.

Section II
The several states may provide by law the means by which their senators may be removed or replaced.
Well, just as long as these get out — I got a "thanks but no thanks" from the Convention of States.

Well, just as long as these get out — I got a “thanks but no thanks” from the Convention of States.

Too bad, and I would add:

All money earned within the borders of any state by individuals, corporations or any one or anythng paying Federal income tax, will send their forms and check first to the department of revenue for the state. The state will take what is necessary for running said state and remit if anything remains, no more than 10% to the IRS. Anything remaing thereafter will be returned to the remitter.

This system to be effective, must first collect all monthly withholding from individuals and entities paying Federal Income tax within the state. This would be an ideal time to employ ex IRS employees doing their work at the state level rather than at the Federal.

This would put a stop to Federal Blackmail and return power to the states to turn off the Federal spigot of cash that keeps the leviathan alive and tyrannical. IOW the Federal Government would be put back in the box from which it emerged and unable to do anything other than enumerated powers as the cash cows would be udderless. Even at 10% we are wealthy and prosperous enough as a nation that the possibility still exists for Federal malfeasance.

Godspeed, and hopefully congress will cut the office of the presidency back to constitutional levels. We are dangerously close to having an “imperial presidency”, and nobody should have that much power, no matter how convinced they are that they can “use it wisely.”

Nice. No one knows who I am yet. Not at all unexpected.

I had 12% name ID in that poll, and 11% support. And a lot has happened since then.

That’s one of the reasons we run campaigns, is to give the people a chance to get to know the candidates.

Stay tuned, staytrue.
