Liberty-Candidates.org, A Sought After Stamp of Approval in the 2012 Election

Apparently the media is starting to take notice that being listed as a Liberty Candidate is an important stamp of approval in the 2012 election.   Being listed as a Liberty Candidate, voters know what they’re getting when they check them off on the ballot!

Many 2012 Candidates Seeking a Particular Website’s Stamp of Approval

This year there seems to be an added step to the process of running for political office. That step is seeking the stamp of approval from Liberty-Candidates.org.

What started off as a small mom & pops website run by Gigi Bowman & Sally O’Boyle in 2009, has now blossomed into election HQ for those seeking support from the politically educated. Liberty-Candidates.org prides itself on not asking which political party you belong to when applying, but rather what your political beliefs are. Supporters of the website tend to be very knowledgeable of the U.S. Constitution, monetary system, & foreign policy.

In local politics the 2012 political season has just started but Liberty-Candidates has already been flooded with interested candidates. Over 30 candidates have gone through the Liberty-Candidates.org litmus test.

Nullify the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

Nullify the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

By Tisha Casida

Both Political Parties in Washington, D.C. are completely out of touch with the people.  The Republicans and the Democrats are discussing and passing legislation that should never have even be a talking point on the floor of the Congress, let alone law.  They took an oath of office to uphold the Constitution and look at what they have done!  Are they trying to “protect us” or is something more sinister going on?  Conspiracy is certainly on the minds of Americans these days as both parties support and pass unconstitutional and yes, treasonous legislation against the American people.  What is happening?

WE MUST stop them!   I am talking about the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).  Anyone who reads this assault on us is asking “WHY do we need this type of law”?  How is it that they think we need this?  What are they not telling us?  We all like to call our elected officials ‘stupid’ at times but I am certain they are not stupid enough to not have a plan and understand what is going on here.  Why does this have so little opposition from either party?  Why is it not talked about in our “main-stream” news media?

Enough!  Every state, county, and city must draft legislation to nullify this unconstitutional declaration of war against Americans.  They can’t even call it a war against terror anymore because they just declared “us” the American people terrorists, extremists, committing “belligerent acts”.  They clearly have drawn the line, it is our elected officials against the American people.  How is this possible?  Why would they do this?  Check out the actual verbiage (Title X, Subtitle D, Sections 1021 and 1022 – Page 81 of 371) and you decide.  It is now WAR – they provoked and declared it.

Our founding document The Constitution of the United States of America means nothing to them anymore or they would not have drafted or passed this treasonous act.  They have failed to uphold their oath of office.  So do we follow them or follow the Constitution?  The Constitution warns against what they have done to us and clearly states what is necessary for “we the people” to protect ourselves from the disastrous effects of power freaks, cowards, and dictators.  Read the bill and decide for yourself.

We can combat all of this in a non-violent way.  But you must get off the couch and put down the TV remote.  Americans have become complacent and think it’s all gonna be okay.  Time to walk the walk and stop screaming at the television which goes on deaf ears and does nothing to empower yourself.  This is exactly why I am running for Congress – to protect our liberty and freedom from an oppressive government.  Every state has the opportunity to fight back and I am fighting for Coloradans.  This is not a “sky is falling message”, this is real and in force since New Years Eve 2012.  You have already lost your liberty and freedom, it is just not enforced yet.  Elect me to restore your liberty and freedom and stop this egregious act against YOU and all of us.  I stand for you and all of Colorado, I will not stand down.  I got off the couch, please join me. http://www.casida2012.com/ndaa/nullify-the-national-defense-authorization-act-ndaa/

Please support our efforts to educate America about the NDAA and the Enemy Expatriation Act, please consider a donation to our campaign.  Every bit helps!

Obama’s New Defense Plan: Is it right for a war weary America?

by Liberty Candidate, Danny de Gracia II


HAWAII, January 14, 2011–The Obama Administration’s new defense strategy as outlined in the sixteen page document Sustaining U.S. Global Leadership: Priorities For 21st Century Defense has defined the first and primary mission of America’s military as “Counter Terrorism and Irregular Warfare.”

But in an era where Osama bin Laden is dead and nearly ten years have passed by since the al Qaeda attacks of 9/11, is Obama’s blueprint the right plan for a war-weary America? In America’s military service academies and war colleges, the ancient strategic wisdom of Sun Tzu’s famed Art of War is still taught for its timeless advice on command and tactics.

“[I]f you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle,” Sun Tzu writes, and says further “to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.”

Sun Tzu also presents an interesting economic warning about prolonged war: “if the campaign is protracted, the resources of the State will not be equal to the strain. Now when your weapons are dulled, your ardor dampened, you strength exhausted and your treasure spent, other chieftans will spring up to take advantage of your extremity. Then no man, however wise, will be able to avert the consequences that must ensue.”

As America experiences continued fiscal challenges in the form of a rising national debt and a weak economy, these warnings almost perfectly describe the condition of our military and country. History demonstrates that the correct course of action for a declining power is not to commit to fighting a global war in search of peace but rather to seek to avert conflict altogether through a combination of shrewd diplomacy and a well-equipped military that can strategically deter both small and large aggressors alike.

This wisdom was the default posture of the United States for most of the Cold War, especially in the early post-WWII years when America’s policymakers realized that her enemies abroad could quite easily seek to whittle her into exhausting conflicts by starting flashpoints around the world.

In a January 1954 address to the Council on Foreign Relations, Eisenhower’s Secretary of Defense John Foster Dulles remarked, “If the enemy could pick his time and his place and his method of warfare – and if our policy was to remain the traditional one of meeting aggression by direct and local opposition – then we had to be ready to fight in the Arctic and the tropics, in Asia, in the Near East and in Europe; by sea, by land, and by air; by old weapons and by new weapons.”

Instead, the solution offered by Dulles and others throughout the Cold War was to provide America’s enemies with an absolute assurance that initiating aggression against the United States would be met with overwhelming response.

While Obama has been compared by conservative critics to Jimmy Carter, the presidential election year memorandums of the Carter Administration draw sharp contrast to today’s new defense outline. In July 1980, Carter issued Presidential Directive 59 in which his vision of American defense meant “it is necessary to have nuclear (as well as conventional) forces such that in considering aggression against our interests any adversary would recognize that no plausible outcome would represe

My New Year’s Resolution to My Country – Help Ron Paul Get Elected!

By Gigi Bowman

President of http://www.liberty-candidates.org

My New Year’s resolution to my country. I will do everything I can to get Ron Paul elected and here is why:

Notice all this negative propaganda about Ron Paul only started coming out a week ago calling him a racist, anti-Semite etc, when the “right” saw they were losing in Iowa to the pro-peace, pro-freedom, Constitution and liberty loving candidate, Ron Paul. They had nothing else on him –he has never flip flopped or changed his convictions. He has stood by the Constitution and his oath of office for his 30+ years in office. So the media in coercion with those that OWN the media, do what they do best –they use negative propaganda to bring people down to have it their way. I think we’ve been through enough of this to know the game and how it’s played.

Ron Paul only gains supporters –he never loses supporters. Once you understand the message of our founders, of liberty and freedom you realize you must fight in order to keep America sovereign or in the end we will all lose –especially our children. We are broke. Our country is broken –yet we are supporting other countries militarily and monetarily while people in our own country can’t get jobs and lose their homes to foreclosure. Our roads and bridges fall apart while we rebuild those we bombed in wars we should not be having. The only one making out here are the war profiteers. They want to continue their cushy incomes so they will make sure to install those who will help them to do that. Apparently that seems to be the goal of all the candidates including the POTUS –all except for Ron Paul. Is it any wonder they don’t want him to win?  He is a man of the “people” NOT a man of the Corporations!

But the people are fighting back. I think the occupy movement proved that (or at least the beginning of the occupy movement before it was taken over by the very corporatist it was fighting against and the political hacks who wanted to use it for their own gain.)

I think the people are tired, hungry and verging on poor in this country. We need to begin again. These people running our country are crooks, traitors and obviously not doing what they are doing for the good of the people any longer (did we not just find out that Congressmen are ALLOWED TO INSIDE TRADE IN THE STOCK MARKET???).

We’re killing American citizens with drones –now you’re guilty and have no way to prove your innocence. Instead you are dead. NDAA, Patriot Act. Monsanto. Lobbyist. They are telling us what to eat, what medicine we have to take. Probing us at airports and radiating our children just to get on a plane to go to Disney World.

The people are fighting back and Ron Paul is the only choice we have left to make this country work before our monetary system collapses thanks to the biggest crooks of all –The Federal Reserve–the PRIVATE banking cartel that has robbed our children of their future.  Our legislators sit around fighting about how high to raise the “CREDIT” on what is seems is the limitless money supply because they can just print it up if they need it! So what if it’s not backed by anything….we’ll worry about that tomorrow!

None of the other candidates or the President are talking about these things. They want to keep things the way they are. They want to bring us back to the time of slavery. Our kids –sure they go to college and they take out loans to do it (because their parent’s can no longer use their homes as ATM machines) and they graduate and can’t find jobs because we no longer produce anything in this country –and they graduate in DEBT and can’t ever see a real future or buy a home or afford to have their own kids.

I lost a child to Big Pharma. They keep pushing anti-depressants and vaccines on our kids through the schools run by a “department of education” that pays administrators $400,000+ a year  but we can’t afford to keep our teachers or buy paper for the schools though our property taxes –which are so high that retired folks who own their houses outright still can’t afford to live in them! –yet in my State, NY, our Governor writes executive orders to grow our government with more “teams” who sit around getting paid to figure out how to save the taxpayers money. It’s almost comical it’s so absurd!

When my generation was growing up no one died from pharmaceutical drugs. Today it’s the norm. Who are our biggest lobbyist? Those that get the most “FAVORS” from those running the country? Big Pharma.  Amazing how many commercials and ads in magazines are those to push drugs on us and our kids.  Aspartame is killing us slowly. It is in almost everything we eat! It was pushed through by, yet again, someone who at the time was “running the country”. High Fructose Corn Syrup is in practically EVERYTHING on our store shelves –yet it’s born from GMO produced Corn. Again, lobbyist —MONSANTO…..

Do I need to keep going on?

We are a broken nation and we need to fix it. Vote for Ron Paul if you care about America. It’s our last chance and our last hope.  If you don’t believe me, take a look at some of the bills Ron Paul has tried to put through –they all seem to be about giving the American people more freedom FROM Government.

Make your 2012 Resolution to help Ron Paul take our country back and begin the big fix that we need…..  and while you’re at it, check out the Liberty Candidates who are running for office all over this country because of the inspiration of Ron Paul because one man can not do it alone!

We can’t keep going on this way.

The Constitution v. Legislation by RJ Harris

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It is often said that there is not much the Office of the President can do to right the wrongs currently plaguing our Republic; I disagree. Precedent would argue that new legislation is required to repeal old. However, there is NO support for this notion anywhere in the Constitution. An unconstitutional Law is NO LAW at all and the President’s oath REQUIRES him/her to NOT enforce said measure. Moreover, given that the recent House vote failed to achieve the necessary 2/3 standard for override, the Constitution’s supremacy over all other legislation, the Patriot ACT’s obvious disregard for the 4th Amendment, the MANY unconstitutional provisions in Obama Care and in accordance with the oath of office found in Article II to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” I will not take care to execute the Patriot ACT or Obama Care since they are both most certainly unconstitutional. Furthermore, since Legislation in conflict with the Constitution cannot rightly be said to BE the Law, I would also remove from these two measures the Office of the President’s signature by way of executive order and if the Congress wants them back they would need to comply with Article I, Section 7 and pass them with a 2/3 vote.

 

But all of this talk about 2/3 votes to override, and the fact that the recent passage of the Patriot ACT got VERY close to the 2/3 needed from both the House and the Senate, brings us to consider the “political question” (and I use that term on purpose and will explain why later); If the President knows a Law passed over his veto by the 2/3 vote needed to do so IS STILL unconstitutional, it may well be the Law, but shouldn’t the President then simply refuse to enforce it?

 

Certainly the Constitution requires that the President “take care that the Laws be faithfully executed,” but when a Law, even one passed by a 2/3 majority conflicts with the Supreme Law of the Constitution itself which one should he/she take care to execute? The President is OATH bound to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”; not so for mere legislation. Thus, on the books the Law passed by the super majority may remain for the next President to enforce; but if enough Presidents refuse to enforce the errant measure might this eventually push the Congress to fix what makes it unconstitutional?

 

By now some of your are screaming ‘yes but if any President did this the Congress would impeach him/her.’ Not so; the President may ONLY be removed from office by the Congress upon “conviction of, Treason, Bribery or other high Crimes…” So wouldn’t a President who’s greatest commitment belonged to the Constitution and the Republic be willing to stand up to the Tyranny of the Majority when it is made manifest and blatant as has been done with both Obama Care AND now the extension of the Patriot Act? NO WHERE in this sparring over the political question between the President and the Congress is it necessary for the Supreme Court to intervene if the President is upholding his/her oath. And if he/she is not the remedy is STILL NOT for the Supreme Court to USURP this power for itself as it did Judicial Review in Marbury v. Madison.

 

And now that the Supreme Court has been brought into the discussion I return to the “political question” mentioned earlier. The Supreme Court has held time and again that it will not involve itself in issues it considers turning upon the “political question” since these issues are supposed to be settled by VOTERS, We the People, NOT the Court. Moreover,  Judicial Precedent IS NOT our Supreme Law, the Constitution is. Judicial Precedent and Construction DOES NOT represent the will of We the People or our Consent to be governed, the Constitution does. So before you start quoting cases to me as if I was arguing before the court instead of before the highest authority in the land, that being We the People, I would ask you to recall that the Supreme Court broke the 5th Amendment to allow Slavery to continue. It did that again when it allowed Eugenics to be used upon us and again when it allowed all Citizens of Japanese ancestry to be sent off to internment camps. So you see, the Supreme Court is NOT the moral edifice to which so many offer it that deference…it is merely the third branch of a federal government all three of which have grown FAT and DRUNK off the power they have USURPED from We the People.

 

We should NEVER allow our consent to be governed to be infringed no matter what percentage of legislators in the Congress are willing to infringe it and we should certainly be prepared to support a Presidential Candidate running on a platform of checking legislative and judicial tyranny. Of course should the President, as has happened in the past, go too far with all of this, again We the People have the power of redressing THAT political question simply by voting him/her out of office at the next election and into office the opposing Candidate arguing to be the instrument of that redress.

 

Claiming that providing for the common Defense conflicts with the Constitution is nothing more than a lie told by tyrants to make us agree to the absolute despotism of a tyrannical government. Claiming that some Citizens MUST give up their earned wealth for the common good of other Citizens is another lie told by tyrants to make us consent to involuntary servitude. Fellow Citizens, it is well past time that we threw off these nefarious designs, tyrannies and usurpations of OUR POWER and elected a President who is actually prepared to conduct his/her office so as to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” as well as the Lives, Liberty and Property of We the People.

The Constitutional Libertarian’s Defense Against Progressive Socialism

Written by Rj Harris
Libertarian Presidential Candidate 2012

With so many key conservative world leaders reading Hayek, and with Hayek himself not being able to confront socialism’s most insidious back-door entry points, those being the foot in the door safety net arguments, it is no wonder that the legacies of Thatcher and Reagan have descended into neo-conservative compassionate conservitivism which is little more than a softer and slower form of socialism. What is needed then and has been missing is the ability of all Libertarians to articulate the message of economic freedom to the emerging Liberty conscious constituency sans any allowance for socialism at the federal level beyond what the Founders allowed in through the Constitution. Therefore I propose that we all learn these following three points in defense of economic Liberty against socialism and be prepared to speak them forcefully and consistently whenever and wherever we may be called upon to do so:

1. Taking from one person to give to another under the auspices of charity, while altruistic, IS STILL theft and that action by a government is only accomplished under the presupposition that the labor of We the People, and the fruits which are bestowed by that labor, belong first and foremost to the government to be redistributed at the whim of that government. Of course this entire scheme has at its heart the insidious notion that while people think they are free because they are allowed to keep a portion of what they produce and make some of their own choices, in reality their “first fruits” being appropriated by the government proclaims for good and all that they are in fact involuntary servants to the state which is in direct violation of the 13th Amendment.

2. Even if state sanctioned theft for the purpose of social/individual welfare was not a moral evil and unconstitutional, governments have proven time and again that they have neither the requisite knowledge nor the level or altruism to efficiently distribute the stolen resources to those in real need. Moreover, when the state fails to husband this forced charity (taxes) to its greatest potential those patrons from which it was appropriated, the taxpayers, have nothing other than the long slow slog of political or judicial recourse to rectify the waste or graft which expends even more of their money to ends other than the supposed charity. Contrastingly, were those same patrons able to choose private charity services which engaged in similar wasteful behaviors to those of the government, that waste and graft could be immediately rectified simply by selecting a more proven efficient charity by the patrons themselves. Try doing this with the government and one will end up in jail or worse.

3. And finally in response to the very predictable socialist retort that people are inherently greedy and must therefore be forced by the state to provide charity through taxation we must be prepared to present the empirical TRUTH that despite the gross over-taxation of We the People there are more charities which exist today, husbanding more resources in the United States alone, than have ever existed in the history of the world. Based off of the economic prosperity which existed under the last vestiges of economic freedom, and lingered on until the last few decades, it can only be concluded that were it not for the greater and greater levels of forced charity through government taxation to provide social welfare, that the free market of charitable services would be even more robust than it has been of late. For how is it even possible for the People to donate to causes of their choosing when they have been taxed directly, or indirectly through deficit spending and inflationary policies, to the point of their own near total impoverishment?!

Thus, unless we are willing to continue allowing socialism and the insidious practice of involuntary servitude which follows in its wake to continue robbing We the People to our complete and utter impoverishment on a generational scale, then we must remain resolute and unwilling to concede the necessity of any socialism beyond that which the Constitution allows.

Helpful rebuttals to predictable and weak socialist retorts:

Roads are not forms of socialism as it has always been possible for them to be funded purely by those who use them. Moreover, while the Constitution allows for the appropriation for post roads nowhere does it preclude Private Enterprise from funding and building private roads for profit nor the federal government from paying for its need of post roads through user fees rather than taxes. The exchange of a valuable good or service for a fee is not a tax, it is commerce.

Similarly, courts may also be provisioned through user fees charged to their customers, the litigants. So again we have no need for socialism in our civil courts. In fact our Founders only conceded the need for socialism in the provision for the common Defense of the Lives, Liberty and Property of We the People and if we are successful in restoring Freedom and re-binding socialism back to its Constitutionally limited state this generation would have done more for the cause of human Liberty than any since our Founding.

Natural disasters are often used by socialists as their trump card when all of their other arguments fail. However, arguments to the inability of private markets to provide relief and recovery assistance are easily overcome by reiterating point thee above, by pointing out that the Republic suffered many natural disasters prior to the invention of FEMA and recovered from all of them through the use of charity, insurance or private investment. Moreover, it is a completely legitimate use of the National Guard to protect and secure domestic aid shipments and relief workers enroute or on-scene without the aid itself or workers labor having been purchased by the government. It is also completely legitimate to use National Guard Airlift or ground transports to deliver initial aid to U.S. civilian populations under direct threat of loss of life in the immediate aftermath of disaster as this falls under the constitutional protection of Life and Property. However, once the immediate threats to lives and property are thwarted, Private Enterprise is best positioned to continue with rebuilding efforts; all the federal aid provided to LA has not rebuilt New Orleans any faster nor any better than was San Francisco rebuilt after its great quake/fire by charity, insurers and private investors.

Fellow Patriots, do not be afraid to defend the virtues of Liberty against the FALSE claims that statecraft and socialism are required to provide safety nets which are most certainly more adequately provided either through charity, insurance or private investment. Meet rhetorical steel with steel and never be ashamed of standing up for your Freedom and Liberty in the face of socialism’s seductive assertions of security and safety which have yet to materialize in our lifetimes despite nearly a century of its proselytization.

Coming Together for Liberty: Free and Equal to Co-Host Liberty Fest NYC

Free & Equal to Co-Host Liberty Fest NYC

New York City, August 30, 2011 – On September 10th 2011 liberty activists, authors, bloggers, artists and musicians from different political backgrounds and parts of the country will gather at Club Amnesia in West Chelsea, Manhattan to celebrate the cause of Liberty. It’s been hailed by some as “The Liberty Event of the Year”, but what isLibertyFest? The organizers of LibertyFest, four grass-roots activists, describe the event:

“LibertyFest is a building of coalitions from the entire spectrum of the liberty movement. We must come together if we are going to bring liberty back to our country. What better way to start rebuilding than to begin at the place where liberty was lost as we come together to bring it back on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 ,” says Gigi Bowman, co-organizer of LibertyFest and founder of Liberty-Candidates.org.

The event has drawn an impressive roster of speakers, including NY Times best-selling author and Senior Fellow of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, Tom Woods. Other speakers include voluntaryist philosopher, Stefan Molyneux – former Arizona Sheriff, Richard Mack – former Congressional candidate,  Adam Kokesh – Gary Franchi, founder of the RTR.org social network – and 2012 Libertarian Presidential Candidate, RJ Harris. In addition, many current and former candidates from Liberty-Candidates.org will be speaking and celebrating the launch of the first official book from the same organization, titled: How to Run for Office on a Liberty Platform.

This event is truly drawing people from all arenas, as stated by co-organizer, Ian Cioffi, “LibertyFest NYC is about bringing people from various political views together, under one roof, to discuss what we can agree on, and how to build from there. It’s an event for people who understand that both parties are to blame, and how we can go about fixing our broken political system.”

Co-organizer, Amanda Trbovich adds, “LibertyFest is about coming together and working with one another. We all have such different viewpoints and we all think very critically – not everyone is going to agree and that is healthy, it keeps us vigilant, as we were meant to be. This event celebrates the differences in the Liberty Movement and invites everyone to come together to share ideas on the best way to preserve our inherent human freedoms.”

Book signings, Liberty themed music & clothing, precious metals by Del Valley Silver and much more will be available in the vendor loft.

“We will be honoring 9/11 heroes and victims, discussing philosophy, debating solutions to national political and economic challenges and having a great time while doing it!” said co-organizer Danny Panzella.

An American Politburo by Howard Houchen

An American Politburo

By Howard Houchen August 8, 2011

    Liberty Candidate for Congress 2010 Oklahoma District 2

An American Politburo has materialized before our eyes.  Yes, our Congress is the result of a two-party system (those Rs and Ds) and, on the surface, doesn’t fit very well with the one-party USSR system, but, let’s look at those little pesky things called facts.

Administrative actions are already replacing legislative acts as the primary governance mechanism.  Just examine the number of regulations emanating from the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Health and Human Services, etc, etc.  Unelected officials (unaccountable to the citizenry) all around this land are producing laws we must abide by, or face some form of punishment, without ever coming under scrutiny by those we elect to represent our interests (and to protect and defend the constitution of these United States of America).  By the way, governance is not government (as Americans know government).  Governance is, very simply, rule.

Many large- and medium-sized cities in America have formed Councils on Sustainability, Councils on Urban Development, Councils on Transportation, Councils on Economic Development, and Council, after Council, after Council.  Hmmm…most of these councils are appointed, not elected, here in America.

Just exactly what is a council?  The Russian term for council is soviet.  In the Council Union (the Soviet Union), rules were laid down by local soviets, regional soviets, and the national soviet.  Notice there is no mention of a state council.  Councils (Soviets) were responsible for regions.  Regions did not have political boundaries so, for all intents and purposes, you had regional governance, outside the political structure, unelected and unaccountable.
