Because so few American lawmakers understand that, 'it is the duty of the legislators to protect the liberty of the citizens,' I have declared my candidacy for the 32nd Congressional District. My entrance into the 32nd Congressional race addresses the need for incontrovertible leadership, primarily by narrowing the discourse to five central themes which follows the acknowledgement of the passing of Harry Browne, the Libertarian Party Candidate for President in 1996 and 2000:
"Americans are likely unaware that their armed forces are propping up third world thugs in 130 countries around the world that should be placed on our borders protecting US citizens from the onslaught of a foreign invasion that has come to exploit our welfare state. And by that, I mean the public schools and the health care system."

Plagiarized from the Communist Manifesto, Amendment XVI remains the most important mechanism for the theft and redistribution of your wealth. It serves the special interests of politicians who create and live from the trough of the welfare state, the plethora of alphabet agencies, and the monstrous unspeakable abuse it wields against its own citizens--or should I say subjects? >>Read More
P Repeal All Firearm Statutes
---2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution
As Harry Browne has written, restrictions on gun ownership don't reduce crime. They either render innocent people defenseless, give the police more power than they should have, or they are simply stupid, unenforceable laws. The only valid policy is to have no laws regulating the ownership of guns, but to hold every citizen responsible for whatever harm he initiates against others---with or without a gun. People should never be prosecuted for what they own, for what they think, for what they eat, drink, or smoke, or for what they believe. They should be prosecuted only for the physical harm they do to others. And people who do harm others should be prosecuted---whether or not a gun is involved, and whether or not there is hate in one's heart or liquor on one's breath. >>Read More
P Repeal the State Monopoly on Education
---Plank 10 of the Communist Manifesto
The elimination of the Marxist income tax would transform our social requirement for both parents to work, enabling one parent to remain in the home for the first time in a generation, and permit children to be educated ideally, in the home.
Because, in traditional government education, more funding, smaller classes, higher-priced teachers and merit pay, and more educational bureaucracy have all been tried and failed. In fact, the only thing that hasnt been tried is competition: The freedom of parents to use their own money to send their children to the non-profit, religious, or private school of their choice--non-government schools that effectively teach the values parents want.
John Stossel's 'Stupid in America'
"Just as bootleggers were forced out of business in 1933 when prohibition was repealed, making the sale of liquor legal (thus eliminating racketeering), the legalization of drugs would put drug dealers out of business. An added plus: There would be far less crowding in our prisons due to drug-related crimes. Its something to consider."
---Abigail Van Buren, "Dear Abby," May 3 1994
The current policy of prohibition and criminalization of drugs does not reduce drug abuse or the harm that drugs cause. In fact, The War on Drugs actually exacerbates the problem far beyond the dangers of the drugs themselves, by making criminals of drug users, and transforming our society into a police state. I will no longer vote for, or advocate any political party or politician, which utilizes the War on Drugs as a get votes strategy. Anyone who does this is simply an accomplice to totalitarianism. >>Read More
P Repeal the Social Security Pyramid Scheme
Again, Harry Browne: "For all your working years, 15% of what you earn (up to $60,600 of earnings per year) goes to the politicians as Social Security tax. They might spend your money on other people's retirements---or use it to buy votes, build monuments to themselves, or prop up the Russian government for another half hour. But the one thing they'll never do is put your money in an account with your name on it, where it can be invested and grow and build up for your retirement.
Anything Social Security eventually pays you will be taken by force from the paychecks of younger people---probably including your own children and grandchildren."

"I feel liberated. ... I no longer am gonna have to carry the water for people who I think don't deserve having their water carried. ... If those in our party who are going to carry the day in the future both in and the administration are going to choose a different path than what most of us believe, then that's liberating."
---Rush Limbaugh, 11/08/2006
"In the aftermath of the bojinka attack, in the World Trade Center debris trucked over to Staten Island's Fresh Kills Landfill, lies the demopublican foreign policy of the Empire of America. As hideous as this crime against our civilization was, Americans should cleanse the apparatchiks of our own Foreign Policy Establishment before they go policing the Ottoman empire, with their legions of Islamic jihadists nostalgic for the 14th century."
