Vetting Candidates

Monday, December 07, 2009

In a three-way Generic Ballot test, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds

Democrats attracting 36% of the vote.

The Tea Party candidate picks up 23%,

Republicans finish third at 18%.

Another 22% are undecided.

Among voters not affiliated with either major party, the Tea Party comes out on top.

Thirty-three percent (33%) prefer the Tea Party candidate, and

30% are undecided.

Twenty-five percent (25%) would vote for a Democrat, and

just 12% prefer the GOP. FULL STORY

Perhaps the Michigan GOP should take notice of this poll. Having followed Ron Paul's request of his supporters, I along with many others here in Michigan put our names on the ballot in 2008 to become GOP Precinct Delegates. What were we met with? Well, when I attended my first state convention, I was standing by a group of women who were talking about how those Ron Paul people were taking over and running everything.

I spoke with a Campaign for Liberty member the other day who attended a state GOP meeting recently, who told me the climate has not changed. So what's the answer? If the GOP party leaders and current members don't want or welcome us, my question is, why should we work to save their party for them?

We could just as easily join the Michigan Taxpayers Party/ Constitutional Party who's values and platform conform more with the Founders Original Intent as well as what we all consider American Values. The GOP needs to rethink how they treat these hard working Campaign for Liberty, Ron Paul Republicans because they could just as easily support a Constitutional Candidate if the GOP fails to produce one.

The Tea Party's are a mixed bag of people from across the spectrum with different degrees of knowledge and values and don't necessarily agree when it comes to sticking to the Constitutions Original Intent.

Lets take a look at some of the GOP candidates for Secretary of State. Remember, these people if elected are going to take an Oath that requires them to protect your Unalienable Rights.

One of those Unalienable Rights is YOUR Right to Privacy, yet the state of Michigan now demands that you MUST give them a SS# in order to drive. I refused to give my number and was denied a drivers license. So, under duress, I had to give my SS# to the state or give up my right to travel in my car.

Act 119 of 1980

207.211 Definitions.

(h) “Public roads or highways” means a road, street, or place maintained by this state or a political subdivision of this state and generally open to use by the public as a matter of right for the purpose of vehicular travel, notwithstanding that they may be temporarily closed or travel restricted for the purpose of construction, maintenance, repair, or reconstruction.

Why is the state now demanding a SS# on our drivers license, because they would loose One Billion Dollars in Child Welfare Funding from the Federal Government if they didn't comply. So for those of us who do not have dependent children receiving this aid, are now put at risk to have our identity stolen not to mention our Right to Privacy breached.

Now lets listen to these interviews and see if any of these candidates are concerned with our Unalienable Right to Privacy.

An Interview with Anne Norlander Republican Candidate for Michigan Secretary of State.

An Interview with Senator Cameron Brown Republican Candidate for
Michigan Secretary of State.

An Interview with Michelle McManus Republican Candidate for
Michigan Secretary of State.

We need to start asking candidates the right questions and then hold them to their promise to Uphold Their Oath of Office.

Our Social Security

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social
Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be
completely voluntary.

2.) That the participants would only have to pay
1% of the first $1,400 of their annual
incomes into the Program,

3.) That the money the participants elected to put
into the Program would be deductible from
their income for tax purposes each year,

4.) That the money the participants put into the
Independent 'Trust Fund' rather than into the
General Operating Fund, and therefore, would
only be used to fund the Social Security
Retirement Program, and no other
government program, and,

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees
would never be taxed as income.

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are
now receiving a Social Security check every month --
and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of
the money we paid to the federal government to 'put
away', you may be interested in the following:


Q: Which political party took Social Security from the
Independent 'Trust Fund' and put it in to the
General Fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the Democratically-
controlled House and Senate.


Q: Which political party eliminated the income tax
deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.


Q: Which political party started taxing Social
Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the
'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the
Senate, while he was Vice President of the U.S.


Q: Which political party decided to start giving
annuity payments to immigrants?


A: That's right!

Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.
Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65,
they began to receive Social Security payments! The
Democratic Party gave these payments to them
even though they never paid a dime into it!
