That Means NO to your Parties & your Candidates !The ruling class elites and their redheaded step-children the GOP have fought over my vote for 145 years and both of you have promised everything and delivered nothing but failure and economic slavery to your bloated leviathan called the U.S. Government.
You see I am that "Conservative" Independent voter that you 2 are fighting over, that was once a very loyal "Blue Dog" Democrat that dropped them after Carter: the last great savior they forced down my throat. I have watched you two fight for control of the same country with the same desire just different ways to create it and that is a permanent ruling class that effectively negates the will of the people who elect you to office. All of you have taken your oath of office and within days, month's or years pissed all over it for personal gain and financial profit. Most of you while raising your hand to take this oath: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God" put your party loyalty oath above this sacred commitment. And here is the key " I will bear true faith and allegiance" to the Constitution of the United States, well you both are nothing more than liars because both parties and especially the Democrats who, over the past 50 years became the Socialist Marxist ruling class and only represent themselves, have been guilty of failure to uphold that oath which is treason! Your genuine fear that both of you exhibit when true "Conservatism" is demonstrated or espoused by anyone that can lay waste to your pathetic existence and moral bankruptcy immediately sends you into a predictable and pathetic Pavlovian response. Democrat's create a false narrative and then reinforce it through their propaganda machine (their favorite of course being the race card second favorite is the denial of life saving services) and Republicans who quietly behind the scenes smear and falsely accuse their objector. Such was the case recently with Herman Cain and his bid for their nomination and his true connection to the 40% of Americans who readily identify themselves as "Conservative" not Republican not Democrat but "Conservative". Romney and his pals in the northeast corridor Rockefeller Republican power base felt so threatened by this person that they created a lie then purchased the necessary participants to perpetuate that lie until it almost destroyed a man's marriage and family.
I have no words for the contempt and anger for them that I have without resorting to a profanity laced tirade that would melt the Internet and ban me from most of the hosting sites you are reading this on. Anyone who professes moral certainties and then openly supports either of these 2 parties or their candidates for any office must ask themselves 1 question, who are you trying to fool? And to my Conservative brothers and sisters who are right now getting ready to defend their candidate and or party and jump on me for telling the truth get in line, you are not the first and won't be the last. Telling the truth is like choosing not to be be PC which I stopped being a long time ago, it is very cathartic, it beats paying for couch time and I love watching peoples faces when you smack them in the mouth with the unbiased, unvarnished and unadulterated truth.
Well get ready for the next smack in the mouth, your getting played the fool again in this election:When George Soros comes out and says that Mitt Romney is OK the hair on the back of your neck should not just stand up it should choke you!
For the first time in 40 years of voting I registered as a Republican to try and move the party back to Conservative values and principals only to see the people I could support without reservation slowly get removed from the equation, so by the time I can finally choose a representative the game is fixed again so my support is negated by the establishment RINO's and CINO's who have done everything short of physical assassination to shrink the field to force their candidate on me. The Republican establishment has become so paranoid of Conservatism that they are screwing themselves in states where redistricting (like here in Florida where they control the outcome through redistricting) would rather give up guaranteed victories in districts where existing candidates like Allen West would easily win re-election. They are redistricting the state of Florida and in the process have left every single gerrymandered district intact as to not offend the "minority" voter representation of the likes of the eloquent Corrine Brown but force Conservatives to fight for new seats with little to no support and the GOP boot on their throats.
This is supposed to motivate me to support the GOP and its candidates? Guess again!
If you are new here cowboy old grandpa here is one the people who started (along with many others) this little thing we like to call the TEA PARTY! In 2008 I started the Florida Freedom coalition which was then absorbed by the Florida Tea Party and the Tea Party Patriots. (I left my registered practice with one of the big broker houses because of their policies concerning compliance with my political speech) I have let them convince me for the last time that a 3rd. political party is not viable and only guarantees the liberals victory because the right party that represents the 40%+ of Americans that are Conservative makes us the Majority and that is really what scares the SHIT out of them, they lose their power! I belong to over 25 local and national Tea Party organizations and over half are nothing more than shills for the Republican Party and other than the most recent election have been kept in check by the them.
And did you check the latest voting record on the last bill passed in 2011 the NDAA 2012 you will see even the above named Rep. West and other supposed "stalwart" defenders of Conservative values like Marco Rubio who were voted in to represent the electorate according to the Constitution, voted yes to a bill that gives this Marxist socialist totalitarian in the White House the power to arrest and detain any America citizen without trial. these guys give a whole new meaning to "keep your friends close and your enemies closer" , I don't think Tsun Tsu meant we were supposed to elect them to federal office.
There is a clear opportunity to unite the Tea Party's and their members into a true representative party that can unite all of us into the major political power in this Nation and direct us back to a true Representative Republic:
CONSERVATIVE PARTY USA:The Conservative Party USA will rectify the consistent failures and corruption of the current two-party system. CP-USA will impose fiscal discipline, restrain the reach of the federal government as outlined in the Constitution and defend America’s traditional family values.
The American two-party system is broken. It has become a system of elite political insiders who only serve the special interest groups that help keep them in control. Some elites call themselves “Democrats” while others call themselves “Republicans”.
The elite of the two major parties continue to fail America based on our spiraling national debt, trillion-dollar annual budget deficits, off-budget Earmarks, escalating illegal immigration, weakening Dollar and loss of traditional American values. They are stealing America’s future because they are only dedicated to getting re-elected.
The Conservative Party USA is emerging as America’s real “Second Party” because true conservatives, Independents and Tea Party activists will soon relegate the GOP into political irrelevance. Republi-Dems are two sides of the same losing coin.
The Tea Party is mainly united by fiscal conservatism; the desire to get Congress to follow the Constitution and spend the people’s money wisely. However, the Tea Party is not united by a socially conservative agenda because its membership consists of a broad spectrum of political views.
Who will address important social issues consistent with traditional American values beyond the fiscal and monetary problems facing America today?
Critical moral, social and Constitutional issues must also be considered. These include: Illegal Immigration; Welfare; Gay Marriage; Gays serving openly in the Military; Abortion; Religious Freedom; Saving American Jobs; The War on Drugs; Maintaining a strong Military; Affirming States’ Rights; Clarifying the 14thAmendment on “Anchor Babies”; Stopping the Discrimination of Affirmative Action, to name a few.
America will not survive if it abandons its traditional values for the sake of solving only fiscal problems… we assert that both traditional values and fiscal solutions are equally important.
What happens to the Tea Party and like-minded groups beyond budget and fiscal issues?
The Conservative Party USA is the next evolutionary step of the Tea Party because it combines fiscal restraint with traditional American values that are outlined in a clear Platform and is managed by a strong leadership team that has a unified, long-term vision for America.
Conservative Party USA is the answer to those critical questions and Project Mayberry® is the key!
CONSERVATIVE PARTY USA
July 2010 – New Orleans, Louisiana
National Platform Plank – VotedPREAMBLE
The Conservative Party firmly embraces in the concept of American Exceptionalism. America is a country of a distinguished founding, unique historical experience and has a grand path to the future. We also believe the United States has contributed more to the political, economic and financial betterment of the human condition than any previous collection. Our Party’s Platform reflects this belief.
Federal Government Must Enforce Current Immigration Laws
The U.S. Government shall use all legal means under current Federal Law(s) to protect our borders, halt illegal immigration, deport illegal aliens who are caught and fully prosecute companies that knowingly hire them. No federal or state funds should be used to provide health care (except in cases of emergency), social services and education benefits for illegal aliens or their children. Safe haven cities should lose Federal funding and be prosecuted. Illegal aliens shall not be granted drivers licenses nor have the right to vote in any local, state or federal elections.
Repeal Health Care Reform Bill of 2010
Support candidates and legislation that help repeal the Health Care Reform Bill of 2010, AKA “ObamaCare”. Support federal lawsuits promulgated by State Attorneys General to halt implementation of said Bill.
Comprehensive Health Care Solutions
Health Care solutions must include Tort Reform that limits liability for pain and suffering. This cuts malpractice premiums and reduces the cost of needless “Defensive” tests. The law should allow posting of local prescription drug prices on the Internet so that people can shop for the lowest price. The Law must also allow: individuals and small businesses to purchase health/dental insurance across state and regional lines; encourage the medical industry to digitize medical records to reduce paperwork related costs; eliminate the Anti-Trust exemptions for Health Insurance companies which currently allow them to collude in setting prices and coverage.
Adopt a Fiscally Responsible Monetary Policy
The U.S. Government must adopt monetary policies that reverse our nation’s headlong descent into unsustainable debt, ongoing fiscal irresponsibility and progressive slide into de facto socialism. These policies should include auditing the Federal Reserve Bank to increase its financial transparency.
Promote Economic Prosperity
America should adopt measures to help revive and sustain economic vitality.
A. Tax Credits, Incentives and Penalties. Congress should: enact Payroll Tax credits for small businesses to spur growth; provide U.S. multi-national corporations with tax credits for hiring U.S. citizens to work in America; impose tax penalties for every American job sent off-shore.
B. Stop Off-Shoring Jobs. We encourage American multi-national corporations to stop sending jobs offshore. We should also encourage Shareholders and Boards of Directors to help sustain the U.S. economy by halting this short-sighted practice by building more manufacturing plants and Call Centers in America.
C. “Buy American”. We encourage the American public to do its part in sustaining the U.S. economy by purchasing products “Made in America” whenever possible. They should also encourage stores to stock American made products. A “Buy American” initiative will help U.S. companies create jobs in America.
The United States must adopt a comprehensive Energy Policy
This policy should be driven by private industry to include: wind; hydro power; clean coal technologies; solar; domestic and offshore oil drilling (including ANWAR); new forward looking technologies; and realistic, economically viable conservation programs. Nuclear power is a viable option and should be encouraged when using new technologies and environmentally feasible disposal systems for spent fuel.
Enact Reciprocal Trade Laws
International Free Trade is only good if it is Fair Trade when all countries conduct such trade by the same rules. The U.S. trade deficit sends much of America’s wealth to foreign countries since many of them engage in unfair unilateral trade practices that include adding numerous Tariffs, Port of Entry Taxes and Import Duties on American products. Congress should enact laws that Reciprocates (Copies) those fees on products from each country that exports to the U.S. This will level the playing field since countries will then pay the same fees imposed on U.S. products.
End Automatic Congressional Cost of Living Increases
Congress should amend the Ethics Reform Act of 1989 to remove the automatic Cost of Living (COLA) pay increases for Congress. In order for Congress to initiate pay increase they must bring a Bill to the floor for a majority vote and the pay increase will not take effect until the next Congress.
Require a Balanced Budget
Require Congress to enact a Balanced Budget annually except in times of war or National emergency
U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights are the Supreme Law of the Land
The U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights are the Supreme Law of the land and shall be taken literally. Our rights are natural rights and are given to us by our Creator that no man can take away. All laws infringing on these rights must be repealed. All treaties that impose International Law on Americans which usurp the Constitution or Bill of Rights must be revoked.
Write Bills Plain, Common Sense English
Important legislation can be written in comprehensive language, as the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights clearly demonstrate. All Bills enacted by Congress must be written in plain, common-sense English prose that is comprehensive and understandable by citizens.
Reject all Forms of Affirmative Action
Affirmative Action based on race, gender or ethnicity must be banned at all levels of education and employment. This act of soft tyranny engenders latent hostility between and among ethnic groups and encourages the cultural “Balkanization” of America. It also lends de facto support for the unsound concept that certain minorities are incapable of advancement without institutional intervention.
Eliminate the Federal Government’s Power to Charter Organizations
Eliminate the Federal government’s powers to charter organizations like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mack.
Government Employees Should Not be Unionized
Unions have created a divisive dynamic within government agencies which should be accountable to the people alone. A government of the people, by the people and for the people should not be compromised by special interests.
No Automatic Citizenship for Children of Illegal Immigrants
Support the “Birthright Citizenship Act of 2009” (H.R.1868) that rejects the concept of giving automatic citizenship to children of illegal aliens who are born within U.S. borders.
Life Begins at Conception and Ends at Natural Death
Human life is nature’s continuum which begins at fertilization and is not interrupted until natural death. Constitutional personhood is the secular legal definition of the continuum of life. It is a law of logic that contradictory statements cannot be true at the same time. If nature’s continuum of life is true, then the secular continuum of life must also be true because if the secular continuum of life contradicts nature’s continuum of life, one is false.
Make English the Official Language of the United States
English should be the official language of the United States. Individual States and Congress should enact laws that reflect that principle with exceptions for State Department, U.S. Immigration office functions and international ports/airports. Congress must mandate that all language in the public domain must be English and other language forms in the public domain should cease under penalty of the law. This does not restrict the rights of States to print materials in other languages as they deem necessary.
While it may appear to be a civic gesture of good will, giving foreign languages equal status with English results in eroding the unique culture of our country. The United States was, is and must always remain an English speaking country.
Marriage is Between One Man and One Woman
That true marriage is only between one man and one woman. Support a Constitutional Amendment that would outlaw gay marriage. Support the current Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that allows any state to not recognize the same-sex marriage license issued by another state.
Carry Weapons on Military Bases
The United States military should allow military personnel to carry firearms while on base. The 1993 Clinton ban should be lifted so that soldiers can be prepared to defend themselves at any time.
United States should Secede From the United Nations
The U.S. should secede from United Nations and remove it from American soil. Foreign powers have conspired against the United States, the Constitution, its sovereignty and its people.
Project Mayberry®:The time has come for all true Conservatives, like-minded Independents and Tea Party activists to join the Conservative Party (CP-USA). We are emerging as America’s real “Second Party” because the two major parties are duplicitous in their ongoing failure to properly govern America. Their main objective is to get re-elected, not govern.
CP-USA is the next evolution for those in the Tea Party movement who share traditional conservative family values. They will soon understand the Republican Party – and its leadership – does not share those traditional fiscal and social values. Both are critical.
Project Mayberry® was inspired by the erstwhile “Andy Griffith Show” about the sheriff of a small town called Mayberry. Don Knotts portrayed the bumbling deputy (Barney Fife) while Ron Howard (Opie) grew up to become a very successful Hollywood director. Of course it was all held together by the Helen Crump, Opie’s school teacher who also taught life’s lessons for all. The people in that small town held traditional, patriotic, common sense values seldom seen in today’s America. Project Mayberry® will restore that ethic.
What Is Project Mayberry®?
Project Mayberry® is a coordinated, national effort to break the Democrat-Republican elite stranglehold on Lady Liberty by uniting America’s diverse, conservative, traditional family-value Patriots at the local level.
CP-USA and its strategic partners will identify, train, groom, support and campaign for “down-ticket” conservative candidates for local elected offices for the 2012 election cycle and beyond. The targeted offices include: Small-town mayors and city council members; Local school and education Boards; Water and Utility Commissions; Local sheriffs; Judges and District Attorneys; State Legislators.
Project Mayberry® will build the conservative movement from the ground-up by creating the solid political foundation needed gain state ballot access and to elect experienced conservative candidates for future state-wide and national offices.
Why America Needs Project Mayberry®?
CP-USA is determined not to repeat the failures of previous third parties that adopted a “top-down” approach. Examples include: John Anderson’s failed run at President in 1980; Ross Perot’s 1992 ill-fated campaign for President with The Independent Party; The Libertarian Party’s affair with shock jock Howard Stern when he ran for NY Governor in 1994; The Constitution Party’s campaign with Chuck Baldwin in 2008.
They all failed mainly because they either did not first establish a solid political base before running (Anderson and Keyes) or because their respective parties were built on personalities rather than solid principles and values (Perot and Stern). Their parties collapsed when their candidates faltered. Despite their longevity, neither the Libertarian Party nor the Constitution Party has gained the requisite sustained grass roots support needed to mount winning candidates for these reasons.
CP-USA and Project Mayberry® avoid these mistakes by establishing small, attainable goals built on durable conservative foundations and values that transcend personalities or transitory fads.
What Are The Benefits (Value Proposition) of Project Mayberry®?
◊ Creates a unified political infrastructure that allows disparate conservative groups and Tea Party activists to cooperate and advance shared goals.
◊ Has a long-term vision rather than short-term goals.
◊ Builds a solid conservative base from the ground-up.
◊ Requires fewer resources and avoids expensive campaigns needed for major offices.
◊ Mayberry candidates can run campaigns without compromising their conservative values because the costs are lower; less beholden to contributors.
◊ Does not always require major party support or official state ballot status. Many down-ticket offices are non-partisan.
◊ Develops a “Conservative Farm System” that grooms conservative candidates for future major offices. Down-ticket offices like school boards, county commissioners and judges often set (or thwart) a state’s political agenda.
How Project Mayberry® Works (Outline)
◊ Each CP-USA Affiliate and strategic partner assigns a person(s) or team to manage all facets of the Project in their respective states.
◊ Each team will become familiar with relevant state/local election laws and local office requirements. They will also develop relevant Candidate Pledges to help the screening process.
◊ Teams will strategize on what specific offices would best exemplify the spirit of Mayberry in their states. It will be advantageous to identify non-partisan or down-ticket offices or races where primaries are not required.
◊ In parallel, team leaders, rank-and-file memberships and strategic partners will seek out and identify potential conservative candidates for those specific down-ticket offices.
◊ By the end of Q1 2012, teams will select candidates they feel best exemplify true conservative values and who can best win their respective races.
◊ Teams coordinate and support selected candidates for office as required during the 2012 election cycle.
Additional details will be developed and shared as this Project moves forward.
How Can You Help Project Mayberry® Succeed?
All new initiatives like this need a solid combination of dedicated people who share the vision and financial resources to drive the Project. CP-USA will solicit help from a variety of sources for Project Mayberry® during 2011 to include various Tea Party groups, conservative political parties such as the 9/12 Project, local Tea Parties, The Constitution Party, The American Conservative Party, The American Independent Party and many others. Conservative educational organizations like the Heritage Foundation and media assistance from Fox News and various talk radio hosts will also be enlisted.
So my fellow Conservative's "now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country" and stop being told that we are the minority or the fringe or the radical or the racist, we are the silent majority that can be silenced no more. Take the next step with me and research this for yourselves and then ask yourself this question: Who in my heart really represents my core values and beliefs about this Great Republic and the future I want for my children and their children? Then GET INVOLVED BEFORE IT TRULY IS TOO LATE!
