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.
December 7-10th, 2010, we are asking EVERYBODY to buy at LEAST one (1) ounce of PHYSICAL Silver either online at a primary dealer or secondary market like eBay.com or offline at a local coin dealer or pawn shop. Do NOT buy any fraudulent silver certificates or speculative silver mining stocks.
Help crash the corrupt J.P. Morgan who has committed silver fraud and broken dozens of federal and state laws in manipulating precious metals while helping the Government prop up the over-valued and nearly worthless U.S. greenback currency.
Vote with your feet and buy as much Silver for yourself or loved ones on that day!
Independent Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont gave an impassioned speech on the floor of the Senate yesterday. Mr. Sanders railed on the top 12th of the top 1% of the wealthy in the United States. Highlighting their oligarchical control of the congress, their use of taxpayer money in the form of subsidies, grants, special tax exemptions and bailouts to continue to force the middle class into poverty.
While I disagree with Mr. Sanders assertion that the “Bush tax cuts” should be repealed, and the Death tax should remain in place, I whole heartedly agree with his assessment of the economic situation.
The government already taxes far beyond its authority, the Bush tax cuts are an attempt to limit the amount the federal government can tax, does it benefit the wealthy more than the poor and middle class? Certainly. Should it be repealed allowing the Government to confiscate wealth that does not belong to it, skim off the top and then redistribute a pittance to the little guy? Certainly not. As far as the death tax goes, that money has already been taxed once, to tax it again upon death only serves to ensure people spend their money before they die leaving no wealth for the younger generations to improve their economic status.
So if Sanders is wrong on the solutions to the very real crisis we are in, what are the solutions? It all begins with a sound money system. We need to Audit the private corporation that controls our currency and monetary policy. This will expose the corruption of the Federal Reserve system which will convince the American people it is time to abolish the Fed.
With the currency and monetary policy back in the hands of the congress who is accountable to “we the people” we will start to see economic policy that benefits the people. The next step in this process is to repeal the 17th Amendment, putting the election of Senators back into the hands of the State Legislators. This will ensure that these Senators are loyal to the State, and NOT special interest groups or the Federal Government. With direct election by the people the Senate is loyal to the Federal Government because that is how they protect their own power. Campaign finance reform is the third crucial step towards true Constitutional Government. In a world where dollars translate into political speech; the top 12th of 1% that Mr. Sanders mentions have all the voice while they have reduced we the people to little more than a vote. In the age where the main stream corporate media are the gate keepers to decide which Candidates are given opportunity to address the people. Keep in mind that top 12th of 1% OWN the 6 corporations that OWN ALL of the main stream media.
The tea party has been a very important part of this process of getting our country back on track, yet much of the tea party is being co-opted by fake neo-conservatives like Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich. I can hear the groans now as people dismiss Bernie Sanders speech because he is a socialist. We the people need to unite on our commonalities so we can defeat the real enemy, that 12th of 1% that rules the United States through corporate monopoly control and the media induced illusion of choice.
The left and right need to put aside their ideological differences and build a coalition on the common interest of self preservation, preservation of our natural or human and civil rights. The tea party & coffee party for the most part desire the same goal. To bring true change to the United States. Peace, equality, to stamp out hunger and empower the poor to be successful; for each successive generation to enjoy a greater standard of living than the previous. Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness for ALL mankind. Let’s work together to counteract the main stream propaganda media, identify the real problem and eliminate it. Then the tea party and coffee party can argue over the solutions once we the people are in control of our country once again.
Re: the government’s finger pointing at the JOURNALIST which has uncovered its lies and tyrannies and is forcing it to account. DON’T BE FOOLED BY THIS NEWEST MISDIRECTION ATTEMPT! Keep your focus laser-sighted on the officials that have done things that require explanations NOT on the whistle blower that has thankfully made us aware of the illegal/unethical activities.
It is so easy to point one’s finger at a scapegoat and bray about the harm he is “causing” while the real wicked people scamper on with their tyranny and their vices unmolested. Will we all be fooled again? I say that if government officials don’t want to be forced to answer hard questions about their unethical behaviors then they should…STOP DOING ILLEGAL/UNETHICAL TYRANICAL CRAP THAT ENDS UP ON WIKILEAKS AND OBEY THE RULE OF LAW!
When will the press stand up and FIGHT for one of the last real journalist of our time? It seems that Assange, and a few others (AJ;), are the only journalists NOT on the government dole. They should all do as the founders intended them to do and close ranks around a brother that is TRYING to force our government(s) to be honest to us. Why is the freedom of the press in the very FIRST amendment? Because the founders KNEW that government conducted in secret is inherently corrupt. Oh, by the way, are we really supposed to believe that some LOWLEY PRIVATE, the lowest rank in the U.S. Military, is the sole source of all these leaks?! If you believe that crap I have some ocean-front property in Arizona to sell you:) From these claims about this soldier we can deduce one of two things…either our government is lying to us…AGAIN…or our intelligence departments are the most inept government entities in the history of the Republic. I’m not sure which is more damming.
Demand to have your government conduct its business in the OPEN for all eyes to see. Your Freedom and Liberty depend upon this for government conducted in secret has made slaves of us all.

Liberty Candidate, Cisse Spragins, Speaks Out against Body Scanners
Adam VS The Man with Adam Kokesh Naked Body Scan or Pat Down
I think there is something not being discussed here, which is that the Federal Gov’t should not be conducting security for private airlines. The very existence of the TSA shows an overreach of the commerce clause, and is an unjustified expansion of gov’t. What SHOULD have happened is that the airport or the airline in question should provide its own security, and if the company then required body scans or pat-downs, then it would not be a violation of the Constitution, and if the customer did not like it, he could take his business to another airline or another airport. Because of federal involvement, every airport will soon have the same standards, and therefore every citizen will be in a position of having their 4th amendment protections violated.
So for me, the answer is to end the TSA.
It is truly amazing how far we will infringe on the liberties of our fellow Americans. This is where we must take a stand. What does the government have to do in order for people to understand this will not end until we decide it is enough? I will not fly until the body scanners are removed.
Steve Susman and David Smith
It is the choice of the airlines in these airports-Participate in tyranny and we will put you out of business. This time, the public will not bail you out. If the incumbents bail you out, we will get rid of them too.( We in Houston have joined forces with Oathkeeper Jay Stang(son of the late Alan Stang) and will organize a massive protest 11/24. David Smith and I are bringing in WAC Houston, the Houston Free Thinkers and more to combat this agregious rights violation) Planning begins immediately after the End the Fed Rally http://lptexas.org/meetup/end-fed-rally
I think it’s very telling that among the apologists for the TSA, no one has suggested the obvious way to resolve this nonsense.
I, for one am only flying privately because the minute some governmonkey touched me, my wife or any child, I’d probably end up with a felony on my hands. This thing is just a way to desensitize the public and destroy any sense of personal modesty.
Why must you appear naked before the Emperor and his minions? How can it be explained to a child that an adult ‘touching’ them inappropriately is “okay” if it’s an idiot with gloves? The whole thing flies in the face of being a “free” person with a government that is charged with protecting our individual rights.
The mental midget’s who think any of this makes them safer deserve their degradation, but I don’t. I am not afraid, to any degree of any so-called ‘threat’. I refuse to live in fear and under the delusion that somehow all this inconvenience and personal invasion makes me ‘safer’.
The obvious way to really make us “safer” is to simply declare Peace on the rest of the world and take away any reason for anyone to threaten any of us. Coupled with an armed Citizenry (yes, even on board the planes) we would all be as safe as is humanly possible. The Constitution was very well thought out, and the Declaration of Independence explicit in its intent
have refused to fly now for some time. I simply refuse to have my Fourth Amendment rights violated & I “walk my talk.” Until “The People” wake up to what is really going on ala Nazi Germany & fight with all we have against this (latest) assault on our civil liberties it will get worse! I am currently on vacation & doing “The road less traveled,”as I always do. It has amazed me that so many Americans are clueless as to what a truly beautiful Country we have. BOYCOTT the airlines! Tell Homeland Security that our LIBERTY means something to us. The sad part of my recent travels however are so many Liberties which have been taken away; something when I get back home I’ll be sharing a great deal about. Please be aware though that as usual we are also fighting the MEDIA & their propaganda machine. We must also spread the message that the bottom line to all of this is “Follow the Money!” And that it has NOTHING to do with “security” but also everything to do with CONTROL. “We the People” are the protectors of the Constitution, NOT the politicians & it is high time we began acting like it! If we do not stop this now, the next thing will be “checkpoints” for vehicles at all of our State borders, & I don’t think that is too far-fetched to believe.
The TSA is a red herring. They’ll concede and Republicans will take credit as liberators… Meanwhile we will still have war with Iran, the Fed won’t end, and the IRS will continue to terrorize Americans. We must stay focused and not be satisfied with false victories. We must not be satisfied with anything less than total liberty.

“Those who would give up essential liberty for a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin
This nation is a nation of delusional freedom today. It no longer resembles the national of our forefathers when the elected pass laws that violate and supersede the Constitution. We as a nation exist in a state of despotism and deny it claiming freedom which does not exist for U.S. under the law. Freedom is as real as a thought, a belief, a faith. It is the forgotten practice of agent-hood, and is the knowledge to make decisions and to take actions on ones own will or upon ones morality.
If we believe that liberty only exists because government allows it or that freedom is guaranteed by laws that dictate how individuals act and interact, then we are blinded and blinded unto a state of tyranny that we proclaim as liberty and we are doomed.
The reality is the government exists because the people permit it, and that liberty existed before governments and will continue even after they fall.
It is not the Government nor its laws that restrain me from killing another person it is my GOD given morality, the natural sense of right and wrong. It is not a “Red-light” law that prevents me from running a red light, it is my common sense and self-preservation that prevents me from pulling out into the intersection and being t-boned by another car.

“Following Orders” No Excuse for Sexual Assault!
Serving as I am here in Afghanistan many of you have asked me why I am here. I have replied that if asked to execute an illegal or immoral order I would refuse and I still hold to that. My point here is that were I a TSA agent…I would refuse orders to do what they are now doing. Those of you still clinging to the notions that our government is not corrupt and that it considers the defense of our liberty as anywhere near the priority that the founders did need look no farther than what is going on at the TSA. These are not solitary random acts of disgruntled agents which does not reflect the ethics of the rest of the agency…this administration and this agency are perpetrating these acts upon us knowing full well what they are doing and yet they tyrannize us anyway. When will you rise up America and fight for your freedom? Will it be after your sisters and your mothers and your wives are molested by government agents? When will you say that the degradations are too great? The founders who espoused to the notion that no exchange of freedom for security was a worthy bargain would be ashamed of what we have allowed already and I say it is time we told the government enough. Don’t fly if you can avoid it. Don’t go through the scanners if you must fly and video any and all searches to be used in court against the agents and agency at a later time. “Following orders” has never been a viable excuse for committing sexual assault and those of you being grope searched should seriously consider filling charges against even individual agents. WAKE UP AMERICA, ITS TIME TO FIGHT FOR LIBERTY
As a liberty candidate I’d like to start off with displaying the Fourth Amendment:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
The Fourth Amendment was written in direct response to British general warrants where the Crown would grant general search powers to British law enforcement officials. These officials could search virtually any home, or person, they liked, at any time they liked, for any reason they liked but were not bound to having justification to do it, it could be on a whim or for folly.
The “right of people to be secure in their persons”, as already ruled by the supreme court, is your right to privacy and by being forced to display yourself naked, or face an intimate groping physical search, removes this right. If this can be done in airports, what is stopping the government from using this as a precedent for doing this in all public places? If, as a citizen, I was to perform any of these actions I would be jailed so how is it legal for the government to not be liable for breaking our battery, child abuse and child pornography laws?
The government is installed to preserve and protect our natural rights not strip them away, under any circumstance. The public is no safer now than we were before the Christmas bomber or September 11th. If someone is determined to bring down an aircraft there are methods available that are way beyond the technology of a strip search so believing that degrading people and stripping their rights makes them any safer is ludicrous at best. As we continue to move deeper and deeper into this “police state” we are telling the terrorists, they won. Their desire is to control through terrorizing and our government is completely following their desire.
‘Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietum servitium’- I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery. By willfully accepting the actions of our government we are accepting slavery as we are no longer the masters of our bodies, we are giving away that mastery to the government. As we give away our rights, we are also dissolving our republic and the rule of law which it was founded upon.
Where does it end? When do the people realize they have become slaves to the master in Washington? When do we fight back? If not today, when?
VIDEO! Ron Paul Introduces HR 6416: The American Traveler Dignity Act
Stepped-up security screening at airports in the wake of foiled terrorism plots has provoked an outcry from airline pilots and travelers, including parents of children who say they are too intrusive. (Reuters)
Since the inception of the porn scanners at our airports the Freedom Movement at large has been up in arms about it; blogging, commenting, and making the case for the unconstitutionality, backwardness and ineffectiveness of such intrusive electronic searches and intimate pat downs.
There are three distinct facets of the tea party within the local communities and within those facets there are more arms and legs running nowhere.
The Tea Party which began in 2009 represents The Republican Party. They say they don’t but they put Sarah Palin at the helm as it’s voice to show that it was a NEW version –and really, they aren’t any different –she rubs shoulders with Kissinger and she pals around with it’s controlled opposition in the form of Glenn Beck and they fight to get Republican’s in office to replace Dems.
Then there is the Tea Party from 2007 which represents Libertarian/Ron Paul Republican’s who have a Mission Statement that guides their rationale as a whole which includes Sound Money, Free Market, Individual Liberty, Constitutional Government and Non-Interventionist Foreign Policy. This mission puts them at odds with the Tea Party/Republican Party because of the anti-war/non-interventionist stance which doesn’t sit well with the Religious Right of the Tea Party troopers. Also, They feel that the Fed does not only need to be audited, but Ended Completely which seems a bit conspiratorial for the Republican/Conservative Tea Party. With a penchant for Austrian Economics the voices that represent this sect of the tea party are Judge Napolitano, Tom Woods, Lew Rockwell, Michael Badnarik to name a few. They are Libertarian bent but many of the Ron Paul rEVOLutionaries are also Conservative Republicans, Anarchist, Minarchist, Voluntarist, big and small L Libertarians and on and on with labels for every sort of personality. As you can see this group is broken into numerous facets in itself. The only thing that ties the group(s) together is Ron Paul.
And last but not least, there is the Tea Party Express Tea Party which is represented by the Newt Gingrich, sect of the Tea Party. The Neocon Republicans who are truly sitting at the head of the table alongside the Left though acting as it’s enemy –we can see that they are at work together through the implementation of everything from loss of Individual Liberty through legislative policies like The Patriot Act and FISA (and Obama voted for both as Senator). We can put John McCain in this group with his recent hosted bill titled “Detain Americans Indefinitely without Trial” http://smargus.com/2010/03/sen-john-mccain-authors-bill-to-detain-americans-indefintely-without-trial/ . These People are the most vile Anti-Liberty subhumans and they are in control of our country along side the left. The most uncanny thing about the Republican Tea Party and the Tea Party Express Tea Party is that they led an entire movement to get Scott Brown elected (based on his single vote against Obamacare –yet he helped to implement Socialist Romney care????) and as soon as he was elected, based on “Tea Party Principles”, he turned right around and was the FIRST to jump on John McCain’s outrageous bill –which just proves that both facets are really one very polished diamond who know exactly what they are doing and how to gather the troops (tea party people) to do exactly what they want while trying to disguise themselves as PATRIOTS.
These Tea Party Patriots favor legislators like Jim Demint and Michele Bachmann who actually VOTED TO CONTINUE the Patriot Act!
So in reality there is no difference between the Tea Parties….Jim Demint plays all sides and sucks them all in –even the Ron Paul Tea Partier’s have a fondness for him because he helped to implement the “Audit the Fed Bill” (HR 1207) by speaking out for it and being one of the first to sponsor it.
One of the few journalist who knew exactly how to tie together the fact that the Right and the Left were one BIG party was our dear departed Alan Stang who is sorely missed by me! In the 2008 election he explained how both Obama and McCain had the same foreign policy advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and it did not matter who won we were going to continue this war indefinitely! http://www.newswithviews.com/Stang/alan170.htm .
Alan Stang also, right before he died, had a lot to say about The Tea Party and it should be heard by all. This is a man who was Awake, Aware and unfortunately no mold was made of him 😦 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgiRVgfN7j4
So the same “Politicians” are playing all sides…..and meanwhile no one is even talking about the fact that the right and the left are truly one big TEA party playing two sides AGAINST Liberty –and while everyone is fighting Right vs Left —Agenda 21/aka Communitarianism has it’s tentacles enmeshed in all our lives and it keeps creeping in little by little every single day –from Red Light Camera’s to GMO foods to the Green Revolution and Climate Change and Obamacare on the left while John McCain wants to make sure no one can buy vitamins and the Military Industrial Complex is an excuse to call ordinary citizens terrorist on the right.
EVERYONE IS FULL OF SHIT –and no one has a clue how to fight back!
I started an organization called Liberty Candidates http://www.liberty-candidates.org because I wanted to help real, aware, awake humans who are making a run for office –inspired by their “swallowing of the red pill” which basically occurred when these people reached out during 2008 to get Ron Paul elected. (you can see documentation of this in the movie “FOR LIBERTY: How the Ron Paul Revolution Watered the Withered Tree Of Liberty” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emaeln–tzo . We have had up to 260 Liberty Candidates and I stand by them because I believe that if anyone is going to change things through politics and fight the good fight by making people aware about things like Forced Vaccines and Sustainable Development and Corporatism destroying our food supply through Monsanto and our drug supply through Big Pharma –at least these people know what the hell is going on!
I had hoped the “Tea Party” would show it’s strength and take on wings and stand behind these liberty candidates…but they HAVE NOT! What has the Tea Party done? What is their purpose? To fight Right vs Left. Their ultimate goal is to get Democrat’s out and Republican’s in –and that’s just more of nothing.
So all we have left is education. And the first place to start is by passing on Niki Raapana’s “What is the Hegelian Dialectic”http://nord.twu.net/acl/dialectic.html which I do every day because there is NOTHING else that explains how we are mere pawns in the big game of RISK that a handful of Vampire Ghouls are playing with our lives, our American Sovereignty and our Planet.
