BTP Response to the 2012 State of the Union

BTP Response to the 2012 State of the Union

by Darryl W. Perry, National Chairman

President Obama wants us to imagine an America that is within reach. I would rather have you imagine a world a little further down the road. The President wants "[a] country that leads the world in educating its people. An America that attracts a new generation of high-tech manufacturing and high-paying jobs. A future where we're in control of our own energy, and our security and prosperity aren't so tied to unstable parts of the world. An economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded."

I prefer to imagine a world in which governments allow you to educate your children as you see fit, without interference. A world in which governments allow you to start and run your own business and create jobs without interference from bureaucrats. A world where you are allowed to purchase energy from any number of sources or companies that do not have special government privilege, or supply your own energy from wind or solar and be able to share the excess with your neighbors without government regulation. A world where you are able to use the currency of your choice without threat of violating a legal tender law. Such a world would have an economy built to last, where hard work pays off, and responsibility is rewarded.

The President also said "We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by. Or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules."

If the President were serious about having an economy where everyone plays by the same set of rules; he would immediately ask Congress to revoke all government contracts, abolish the IRS, abolish the Federal Reserve which serves to protect the large banking institutions, and work with the Governors of the 50 States to abolish the use of eminent domain, abolish special privilege given to "corporations," repeal zoning laws & abolish welfare and licensing laws which do little more than stifle the free market. A world without government interference would be a world where everyone gets a "fair shot."

President Obama additionally said that he will "fight obstruction" in Congress. As long as bills that create more laws, continue funding the military occupation of foreign nations, take away more rights of the people and increase spending are being proposed, I believe that obstruction is the only admirable action that any member of Congress could commit.

In closing, the President says "millions of Americans who work hard and play by the rules every day deserve a government and a financial system that does the same." I am curious what President Obama means by this statement. I doubt that he intends to remove the special privilege given to the Federal Reserve System. I doubt he will remove government contracts and privatize all government agencies. I doubt he will ask Congress to abolish the postal monopoly that prohibits competition on delivery of first class mail. I also doubt that President Obama will request the repeal of "sovereign immunity" which protects governments from civil suits when a government (or government employee) violates someone's rights.

As long as there is a central bank (whether private or government run) there will be "phony financial profits" and "bad debt:" two things Obama says he wants to eliminate. If the President were serious about moving forward with a blueprint for an economy built to last; he would heed the advice I've already mentioned. The only way forward, is to remove the obstacles – placed by government at all levels – from the road.

Boston Tea Party Response to the 2011 State of the Union

Boston Tea Party Response to
the 2011 State of the Union

by Darryl W. Perry, BTPUSA National Chair

President Obama began the 2011 State of the Union address by congratulating the freshman class of the 112th Congress and asking people to be "mindful of the empty chair in this Chamber, and pray for the health of" Gabrielle Giffords. The President then mentioned the supposed "debate" between team blue and team red over the last two years saying, "that’s what a robust democracy demands." Though, as a Constitutional law "scholar," President Obama should know that the United States of America is supposed to be a Republic, not a democracy.

The President mentioned the recent mid-term elections saying, "governing will now be a shared responsibility between parties. New laws will only pass with support from Democrats and Republicans." Unfortunately for the American people, the only things that will be able to get the needed bi-partisan support will not be laws that reduce the size, scope or power of the federal government. One need only look at the bi-partisan legislation passed during the Bush & Clinton administrations.

President Obama claims tax cuts were passed in December, there were no tax cuts passed by Congress or signed by President Obama in December. There was an extension of tax rates that were scheduled to expire, however there were no tax cuts passed in December.

He then went into the purpose of his speech, "winning the future."

President Obama did not propose to "win the future" with plans to eliminate the IRS, war on drugs, legal tender laws or any other number of failed policies and agencies that have caused the condition we live in. President Obama said, "We need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world. We have to make America the best place on Earth to do business. We need to take responsibility for our deficit, and reform our government. That’s how our people will prosper. That’s how we’ll win the future. And tonight, I’d like to talk about how we get there." The easiest way to make sure America is the “best place on Earth to do business” would be to eliminate the regulations and licensing laws that prevent new businesses from opening. Congress should also abolish the Federal Reserve and legal tender laws, which allow the private central bank to manipulate the money supply which causes the "boom-bust" cycle.

"The first step in winning the future," Obama says, "is encouraging American innovation." Though when he says "encouraging American innovation" he doesn’t mean removing subsidies that support existing business in certain industries which intentionally hinder or prevent competition. Instead of eliminating subsidies, the President called for an increase in subsidies for "biomedical research, information technology and especially clean energy technology." Obama wants to use government force to "have 1 million electric vehicles on the road by 2015" and "80% of America’s electricity will come from clean energy sources by 2035."

The President also wants to spend more taxpayer funding to replace No Child Left Behind and "prepare 100,000 new teachers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math."

President Obama said, "America is the nation that built the transcontinental railroad, brought electricity to rural communities, and constructed the interstate highway system." The transcontinental railroad was built by private business, electricity was originally provided by competing companies (until companies were able to get government granted monopolies) though the interstate highway system was built with taxpayer money without explicit constitutional authority to do so. He also wants to spend taxpayer funding to expand infrastructure, with a goal "to give 80% of Americans access to high-speed rail" within 25 years and within 5 years "we will make it possible for business to deploy the next generation of high-speed wireless coverage to 98% of all Americans."

The President then mentioned the complicated tax code being enforced by the IRS and written by lobbyist and special interests. Instead of asking Congress to abolish the IRS and the income tax while reducing wasteful spending and eliminating unconstitutional spending, he asked Congress to "simplify the system" and eliminate loopholes; optimistically hoping that lobbyist will not be able to get tax breaks in the future. He also proposed a $400 billion "freeze" on spending, which amounts to not increasing spending on 12% of the federal budget.

President Obama says he has "ordered a review of government regulations. Only when we find rules that put an unnecessary burden on businesses, we will fix them. But I will not hesitate to create or enforce commonsense safeguards to protect the American people." I hope the President keeps his word on this, though I will not hold my breath.

Obama claims the "Iraq War is coming to an end" though last August, he declared the undeclared war to be "over" while keeping 50,000 troops in Iraq. The President also warned the world, "we will not relent, we will not waver, and we will defeat you."

President Obama’s State of the Union address on "winning the future" was nothing more than a message on spending tax payer money on central planning while giving lip service to cutting government spending and lowering federal taxes.

Quote of the Day for 30 December 2010

"What’s really ironic is that, if someone claims to see a flying saucer, which hurts no one and costs nothing, debunkers come out in force. But let a former vice-president claim environmental apocalypse is upon us, and suddenly we’re appropriating billions and changing our lifestyles."

Questionnaire from the Alibi -- My Answers

Name:Mike Blessing
Party:Libertarian Party / Boston Tea Party
  1. What qualifies you for this position?

    I am a sapient (self-aware) resident, registered voter and taxpayer of the District.

    What qualifies me over my opponent? What qualifies him over me? What qualifies either of us over any other resident of the District?

    Beware the person who tells you that they have all the answers to all of your problems, if only you surrender a bit of your liberty to them. To paraphrase what Lord Acton said, "Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. All great men are bad men." And no, I don't see myself as being immune to this tendency.

  2. What should be done to address ethics reform and transparency?

    Open up all closed-door conference committees in the Legislature.

    Require that all State spending over $1000.00 be posted to a publicly-viewable website within twenty-four hours. Considering that you can be tracked in real time when you use your credit card to pay for gas, fast food, etc., this is a very doable idea.

    Allow private citizens to make audio and video recordings of all Legislative and regulatory-agency proceedings.

  3. How can we balance the state's budget?

    We can start by using a zero-services baseline, and put all of the State budget onto the table for discussion.

    As for cutting specific budget items, we can start with the Rail Runner and the Film Office.

    Refrain from expanding existing programs without cause, or from creating new programs or agencies that do the jobs of existing agencies or programs. Consolidate duplicative programs and agencies. Require every agency and program to justify its existence and budget on an annual basis.

  4. Should New Mexico allow domestic partnerships for same-sex couples?

    Inasmuch as the State requires any form of permission slip for two consenting adults to engage in romantic or sexual relations, the State should NOT discriminate against anyone of the gay / lesbian / bisexual / transgender / polyamorous / kinky persuasions, especially when it's often clear that such discrimination is done just because of this factor.

    Still, it should be remembered that marriage-licensing laws started out under "Jim Crow" in the post-Reconstruction South as a way to enforce segregation, by outlawing interracial marriages between whites and blacks.

  5. Do you favor rehabilitation instead of jail time for nonviolent drug offenders?

    The current "rehabilitation" programs offered by the State as an alternative to jail or prison can often be more intrusive and onerous than incarceration.

    Instead, let's try repealing the stupidity, insanity and evil known as Drug Prohibition. Consider that all it really does is corrupt law enforcement. Until I hear otherwise, I will assume that anyone who supports Drug Prohibition also supports the 10,000 drug-related murders per year in America caused by Drug Prohibition. Drugs being illegal won't stop people from wanting them, and someone else will find ways to make money providing them.

  6. What do you think of the state's film initiatives?

    The Film Office is just as much a corporate welfare handout program as was Isotopes Stadium when it was built, as is the Balloon Fiesta Park. Eliminate them from the public budgets, and then cut the gross receipts tax, cut the personal income tax, so that poor people can save some more money to support their kids. Let the Hollywood studios, all owned by multimillionaires, pay their own way. How many of the jobs created by the production companies still exist after the movie is completed?

  7. How can we improve public education?

    APS is one of the State's biggest spenders and employers, yet apparently the following was written by someone in the eighth grade:

    ABOUT THE "All Work, No Play" article, I disagree with the run artical on how if the students do poorly on the standard based test then they cant have an elective. I feel bad that you feeled on the test.

    See http://tinyurl.com/2a7fmuf for more.

    And we should give APS MORE money?! When I was that age, I would have been ashamed to write that. Is APS even fixable?

    I'm more focused on charter schools, private schools, and homeschoolers.

  8. Should New Mexico change its laws surrounding immigration?

    All of this hysteria about Mexicans coming north like Genghis Khan's Golden Horde is just that – hysteria. Joe Miller, the Alaska GOP's candidate for U.S. Senate, unwittingly reinforced my point when he said that East Germany was "effective" about enforcing its border around West Berlin – http://tinyurl.com/25mf2ml – nice guy, isn't he?

    Seriously, what kind of society do we want to end up with – one with fences, walls, scanners, regulations and subgun-toting guards all over the place, or one where people can interact with each other on a basis of voluntary consent?

  9. What kind of infrastructure improvements does your district require?

    The usual kinds that just about every other district needs – the roads are the most visible ones. Driving around some parts of Albuquerque can be like four-wheeling, considering the potholes, cracks, bumps, etc. that I often see around town. This is what we spend millions on road bonds for every two years?! There has to be a better way to build roads.

    One thing that needs doing around here is speed-bump removal – people still routinely go over them at 40 MPH, and I wouldn't want to be a patient in an ambulence going over them.

  10. What issues do your constituents care about most?

    I haven't had the cash to do any surveys or polling, but I'm guessing that they would want their individual rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness to be respected by State government. I suspect that they want to provide for themselves and their families in a productive manner by interacting with others on a basis of mutual consent. State (and local, and federal) government should do what it can to defend that liberty, while not infringing that same liberty. Other than protecting those freedoms, government should leave people to their own devices.

BTP National Committee opposes National ID

Branson, Missouri, United States of America (Free-Press-Release.com) August 25, 2010 —

On August 24, 2010 the Boston Tea Party National Committee passed a resolution opposing a national ID "or any other bill that would establish a National ID card that includes biometric scanning or tracking devices" 5-0 (with 2 not voting).

Whereas governments that truly want to protect liberty have no need to track the every move of their citizens; and

Whereas privacy from government is a chief cornerstone of our liberties, enshrined in the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution; and

Whereas in the past, many Members of Congress, instead of taking steps to actually end our illegal immigration problem, have chosen instead to use the issue to dramatically expand government intrusion into our lives; and

Whereas the so-called "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" proposal being touted by Senators Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham includes a de facto National ID card that would be required for all U.S. citizens in order to hold a job legally; and

Whereas biometric scanning technology would be included in the card which could allow government bureaucrats to track citizens' every move; therefore,

Be it resolved, the Boston Tea Party National Committee urges the Congress of the United States of America to vote to defeat any legislation requiring U.S. citizens to obtain a National ID card just to get a job — or any other bill that would establish a National ID card that includes biometric scanning or tracking devices.

Party Chair Darryl W. Perry writes, a national ID system would include a "National database of personal information that can be accessed by any Law Enforcement Officer and/or Fusion Center anywhere the barcode on the Driver's License can be scanned. This database of personal information would be controlled by the very people with access, so you will have no say as to what information they keep. This could include not only your driving and/or criminal record, but could potentially include unrelated information such as your medical records, library records and any other host of information that some bureaucrat deems 'necessary'. Voting history perhaps? How about party affiliation?"

Plank 4 of the 2006 program of the BTP reads "The Boston Tea Party calls for the immediate repeal of the REAL ID Act and any and all National ID plans." Perry adds, "it only takes two more steps to become Germany's Third Reich, 'Where are your papers? Your papers, please!'"

The Boston Tea Party was founded in 2006 with a one sentence platform, “The Boston Tea Party supports reducing the size, scope and power of government at all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope and power of government at any level, for any purpose.” In October 2008, the party's National convention adopted the four point program of the Campaign for Liberty. Their program calls for an end to overseas occupation, a restoration of privacy and other liberties, no increase in the national debt, and a thorough review of the Federal Reserve. During the 2010 convention the Party adopted a new program to End the Wars of Aggression, End the Fed, End the War on Drugs, End the Abuses of Liberty, End the Immigration Fiasco.
