Being Left High & Dry By The Law

Attempting to legislate away issues is like creating motion-censored bathroom facilities (e.g. toilets, towel dispensers, faucets).

Creating legislation to stop people from engaging activities makes these “smarter-than-thou” politicians automatically feel like they are creating a “safer” environment. For instance, some people believe that outlawing guns will stop crime (does that mean that police officers and politicians also must not carry weapons?). Pretend you believe that – you go walking around town feeling like you are safe because guns are illegal. What if – hypothetically – a criminal still gets a weapon (which they will – remember, the United States was arming criminals in Mexico just recently (Fast & Furious). Now that this criminal is armed, are you glad that you have no way to protect yourself?

This is the same as creating public toilets that flush automatically when you walk away. Sure, you think that they are going to flush, but they are not fool-proof (nothing is), and sometimes your excrement is left. If you want to be sure it flushes, you have to push the button yourself. You have to take responsibility.

Creating legislation that is supposed to solve problems, can create a lot more problems. For example, some people want laws that coerce other people to buy health insurance (first of all, if the economy was better and we could get our monetary policy in check, most people would willingly purchase insurance on their own). The people who want these laws believe that this will solve all of our sick-care problems – if people are paying into corrupt insurance companies (including the government through your taxes) that have in fact hidden the true cost of medical services – then somehow this is going to make us healthier. Will being forced to pay something you can’t afford right now help you take care of your health and well-being?

This is the same as having faucets that the only way to turn on is by wafting your hands underneath at the perfect speed and distance so as to get a flowing stream of water. It is magical – and no one is sure of the exact calculation – sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn’t – and there is no way to turn it on for oneself. We can’t even attempt to take the responsibility for ourselves because we have no option – that is the same type of choice-scenario that is being discussed with “health-care” – where is my choice to know what medical services cost and pay for them out of pocket?

I believe in taking responsibility for myself, and I am sick and tired of politicians deciding my path for me – whether through legislation, laws on the books, mandates, etc. , it leads to an inefficient experience while trying to “earn a living”. I am not a criminal, and feel I deserve a less intrusive path to “the American dream”.

The same goes for these ridiculously “efficient” and “smart” bathrooms that attempt to think for me and don’t let me push the button – having “others” think for me and decide when the toilet flushes, when the faucet flows, and when the towels dispense, has left me high and dry enough.

A Proof For Liberty, Individual Responsibility – Ditch Your Party

After some candid discussions and exchanges, I thought it pertinent to write a quick proof of the hypocrisy at hand in an effort to educate those willing to listen to reason (versus rhetoric) about the fight for liberty.

It has been said by multiple people and multiple organizations that the key to ending the corruption in Washington, D.C. is to “get them all out”, “uproot the system”, and “vote in new representatives”.

It has also been illustrated that the two major parties, are working together to maintain the levels of corruption and secrecy necessary to be able to continue to create economic slaves of the American people.

Political parties are groups of people colluding for a special interest – the thought is that by joining these parties, that a group is more powerful to be able to create the desired result.  This is in essence, the concept of a democracy.

A constitutional republic has one goal – to protect the rights of the individual.  Which means no special interest or the desired result of any group, could be used as a force.  This would include the special interest and desired results of a lobbying effort, a faction of extremists, a multi-national corporation, a banking cartel, or a political party.

Political parties as machines for ending corruption are impossible because political parties, or any collusion of interests are in fact the machines that cause corruption in our system in the first place.

Therefore, for anyone saying that to “beat the system” we have to work “within the system” of a political party are voiding the very logic of their initial premise.

That’s not to say we should not have political parties, and have groups of people who get together to voice their cause, that is a healthy American thing to do. What I am saying is that you cannot use a political party as a machine to protect liberty, because liberty means standing as individuals.  Individual responsibility means being able to work and operate as an individual – including when it comes to electing representatives and voting for someone.  We should not need a political party to tell us what to do, because these political parties have a tendency to collude interests (democracy) and only serve the interests of those at the top of the party.

Want to “beat the system”?  Get out of it.  It is not working for YOU, the individual.

Warning About Political Parties

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
– GEORGE WASHINGTON, Farewell Address, September 17, 1796



Why abandon the GOP and Democratic Parties?  Because they are the same in too many ways. They are the problem, because they are not representative of the people. The Tea Party figured they could fix the GOP by electing Constitutional Conservatives and it worked!  In fact, it worked so well that the internal GOP elites have declared war on this type of invasion into ‘their’ choices for us.


The internal party elites see us ‘the people’ (not just the Tea Party) as invaders of their kingdom – a big corporate government. They fear independent minds that think and verify. We need to wise-up and stop trusting the people feeding us what they want us to eat – the opportunity to be a Republican as a constitutional candidate no longer exists where I am from; the GOP elites have and will stop us if we work within their framework.


We have seen this type of planned resistance in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District where I am running.  The Colorado GOP destroyed the clear winner of the state convention (Bob McConnell) and fed us their primary choice (Scott Tipton) by heavily funding him and demonizing others.  They did this while adapting to the talking points of “the people’s choice” (McConnell) with no intention of living up to the voters’ needs.  And then they drilled in the fear of what would happen if the Democratic challenger got elected.  The GOP voters took a reluctant bite.  Now, two years later, things don’t taste too good and the independent and swing voters of the GOP and Democratic parties are ready to spit out the candidate that was fed to us in 2010 by the GOP.


Now what? Who can take on the established party candidates?

Some will say that I’m a “spoiler” who can’t get elected and will only “help the Democrat” get elected.  Honestly, looking at the polling and track record of our current congressman (Scott Tipton) and talking to many of the voters who voted Republican, it is obvious he won’t win even if I don’t run.  I spoil nothing.  I offer a true choice of a fiscally conservative constitutional candidate that isn’t tied to big money and controlled by lobbies and big government corporate cronies.

We can’t change the system overnight.  There are options, if you dare to take charge of your vote and vote with your conscience.  We must stop the fear planted in our heads by the party elites and make sensible choices that we can live with. It’s no longer a ‘you have to vote the party, lever puller world’ since both sides, both political parties, have clearly aligned to stay in control.


Demonstrated track records of both parties are now visible to us if we take a realistic look. The Internet has ratted out the biased media.  Some are even now worried that the parties will start to control the Internet in the same way that they control the main-stream-media.


I say re-elect none of them and lets start fresh before more damage is done – that is one of the reasons I am running as an independent/unaffiliated candidate. There are many of us across the country running for our rights and liberties with no party affiliation. This time, more than ever, people are listening and supporting us and dare I say, actually winning!  This is why you see the blow-back from both parties against Independents as we take the seats away from them more and more.  Look at how many people are becoming Independent voters – that is what we should have been doing all along.  Several of our founding fathers warned against political parties – and we can see why.


If you are in Colorado’s 3rd District, I invite you to take a walk on the wild side and vote for someone who cares and dares enough to fight the battle for you regardless of which party you currently associate with. We are all really independent-minded and we share so many common goals and ideals.  We must stop the corporate parties who dictate how we should behave and what is good for us. We are smarter than that.  I challenge you to sort it all out and vote based on common sense, dignity, historical fact and the visionary perspective our founding fathers blessed us with by creating the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Only then can your vote come from your heart.


Nationally, I encourage people to do the same and take a hard look at the parties and ALL of the candidates, including those that are unaffiliated/independent. More and more of us are winning and we need your help.


My campaign is traveling Colorado, listening and talking with all of the citizens who want to be heard. Please come and visit me when I’m in your town, or write/call anytime.  All viewpoints are welcome because I will be representing all of us, not just a political party.  This is about THE PEOPLE versus the established failed big corporate government party system that have completely ignored the people’s freedom of choice and liberty which I shall tenaciously fight for every day.  I listen.  I am accountable and accessible to the people’s voices.  I want your vote and support to change our path.  To the Republican and Democratic parties – if you can ever come back to representing the people of this great country, please let me know.  Until then, please accept my sincere invitation to join me in the fight for our freedom and liberty.
