As the G-20 and many others have been telling us how warm and fuzzy this one world system will be, that we are all in this together, and other things to attempt of disarm and reduce our loyalties to the United States, here is another article that will you an idea of how people and governments around the world want to tell the USA what would be good for them at our expense:

As we continue to lose our autonomy to this one world system, I believe the current administration will be going it into warp drive to join these international governing and regulatory groups. With the end result of our position in the global community will be equal with all other countries, except of course the largest consumer nation.

 

I understand the world is getting smaller due to technology but my questions is why do we in the United States have to give up so much while much of the world is gaining economic and political power? Someone had to pay for this economic transition to this one world system and we are the ones who have and will pay for it. By shipping our industrial base out of the country, with the help of our government through tax incentives to do so, it supplied many countries around the world the economic base to compete for our sovereignty.

 

In other words, as they increase their economic position in the world economy and we are reducing ours, due to our industrial base being shipped off shore and we being the largest debtor nation, many more countries will have the economic where-with-all to influence our global and internal decision making processes. Bottom line, we are selling off our sovereignty for the benefit of the bottom lines of these huge international corporations and financial institutions, with the help of Washington’s unrelenting appetite to spend our way into indentured servitude to stronger economies like China and India.

 

Final thing, for you that live in the 3rd Congressional District of Tennessee and other people in the East Tennessee area who are aware of Zack Wamp’s performance while in office, the Republican Liberty Caucus has asked me to attach a survey they are producing. Go to it and please answer the survey questions, thank you.

Hamilton County Libertarian Party Update-May 03, 2009

April 24, 2009

May 03, 2009

Friends of Liberty,

It’s once again time for another edition of the HCLP Liberty Update
(ok, actually I’m a few days late; I apologize … it’s been a very,
very busy week).

As always, if you know of anything that might be of interest to
members of the Hamilton County Libertarian Party (and since we are
providing a home for some folks in North Georgia that don’t have local
LP affiliates, that includes those areas as well), please let me know,
or feel free to send an email to the group at
libertarian-381@meetup.com.

1. Libertarian Party of Tennessee 2009 Convention – The TnLP
Convention was held this past weekend in Knoxville. Approximately 40
people, including our own Mo Kiah, were in attendance. John Sebastian
was been elected to serve as the TnLP Chairman. John replaces Tony
Wall, who stepped down after serving for the last two years. Izaak
Standridge was elected Vice Chairman; he replaces Charles Wilhoit who
was appointed last July to fill the position after the resignation of
Christian Wilson. Ray Ledford and J.R. Enfield will continue to serve
as Secretary and Treasurer. Many thanks to Tony Wall and Charles
Wilhoit for their service!

A brief article about the Convention, including a photo of our new
officers, can be found here: http://tr.im/kjbw.

Video of some of the presentations is also available on the TnLP web
site (http://www.lptn.org).

2. Chattanooga City Council – I was unable to attend this week’s city
council meeting, and it looks as if I won’t be able to attend the one
scheduled for next week either. The agenda for next week’s meeting has
been posted here: http://tr.im/k5yV. The minutes of this week’s
meeting are also available online (earlier than normal!) here: http://tr.im/k5z0
(PDF).

3. Letters to the Editor/Local Talk Shows – From time to time, people
ask me how they can work to advance the cause of liberty locally. One
easy way that doesn’t take much time is writing letters to the editor
or call locally-produced talk shows. When writing letters, short (200
words or less) letters that address one topic are more likely to be
published. Be sure to use the word ‘libertarian’ in your letter
somewhere. Good luck!

4. Audit the Fed – H.R. 1207: Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009
(http://tr.im/kjdo) – There are now *112* co-sponsors of this bill!
The bill is now in the House Committee on Financial Services; we need
it to get out of this committee so that the House can vote on it.
Please take some time out of your day to call or email Barney Frank,
the Committee Chairman and other members of the committee and ask them
to support this bill. You can find a list of members here (http://tr.im/kjUk
; under “Step 2: Financial Services Committee”).

Tennessee Folks:
TN District 3 Rep. Wamp and TN District 2 Rep. Duncan are already co-
sponsors. For those of you who are in District 4, Rep. Davis has not
signed on as a co-sponsor, so take some time to call him or write him,
and perhaps we can convince him to sign on as well! If you’re not sure
which district you’re in, you can find a map of TN House Districts
here (http://tr.im/kjSA) and a list of Representatives here (http://tr.im/kjSD
) along with links to their web sites.

North Georgia Folks:
GA District 9 Rep Deal is already a co-sponsor of the bill.

If your representative is already a co-sponsor of the bill and you
haven’t already done so, let them know you appreciate what they’ve
done! Let’s make sure that our reps don’t just hear from us when we’re
unhappy with them.

5. Tennessee 10th Amendment Sovereignty Bill/HJR0101 – This bill is
currently in the House Subcommittee for Civil Practice & Procedure. It
was to have been considered this past week, but due to time
constraints has been scheduled for Tuesday, May 5. Please take a few
minutes to let committee members know how you feel about this bill;
you can find a list of members here (http://tr.im/kjYg).

That’s all! Hope everybody has a great weekend!

Best,
Jeremy

Flat / Fair Tax? Be Careful What You Wish For

Libertarian “Prosperity Plan” repeals income tax, ends corporate welfare | Libertarian Party-April 14, 2009

April 19, 2009

Excerpt:

WASHINGTON — The Libertarian Party seeks to abolish the income tax, enact a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution and eradicate corporate welfare under an ambitious three-point legislative plan unveiled by America’s third largest party Tuesday.

“Tens of millions of Americans are angry, fed up and demand real reform,” said William Redpath, Libertarian National Committee Chair.  “The Libertarian Party is the only party that agrees with those tens of millions of Americans that government should stay out of both their pocketbook and their personal decisions.”

Tea Party Time!

April 10, 2009

“The current grass roots efforts across the country, in approximately 450+ cities, is the result of various circumstances.

Foremost, is the current spending frenzy in Washington, D.C.. When government approves any new laws or pork programs (and most, if not all of them are unconstitutional), the Federal Reserve (a cadre of non-government-private bankers) prints and loans the fiat currency to the government with interest to cover the expense, there’s nothing of value to back it up.

The burden of this interest is passed on to the constituents, and taxpayers in the form of debt. There is no consideration given to the input of the people because the “Representative Government” knows that the people aren’t worthy of controlling how their money (or their great grand children’s) money is to be spent. (sarcasm added)

We cannot spend our way out of a recession or a depression. There is no money to spend and there are way too many unnecessary projects. Most folks know when they’ve erred on the side of careless spending and they curtail spending to control their budget. Unfortunately, current representative government has no conscience. It considers itself as a nanny that can do no wrong.

Secondly, there are approximately forty thousand lobbyists that direct the “will” of our elected government employees with their corporate agendas that are comprised of monetary favors and corporate deals. These lobbyists pay no loyalty to the U.S. Constitution, Bill Of Rights or any moral ideals whatsoever. In fact, they strive to destroy the fact that our country is a Constitutional Republic. The United States Constitution “is” the Supreme Law of the Land. Our elected employees swear an oath to abide by the Supreme Law of the Land. Why aren’t most of them in jail right now?

Last, but not least is… People don’t like their employees stealing their hard-earned money and using it on wasteful, illegal programs that continue to regulate their lives against their will. Our country was founded on the principles of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”. It wasn’t founded on the principles of theft and redistribution of the peoples’ money at the whim of the proponents of the Communist Manifesto, though that’s just where this country is headed. The Declaration of Independence placed King George III on notice and followed through with “The Notice”. This sentiment is now being re-kindled, and rightfully directed at our ” insubordinate  employees”, the ones we “supposedly” elected into office to be bound by the chains of the constitutions of our state and national governments. Not to waste the fruits of our labor on draconian projects designed to bring the country into a third-world-status by some tyrannical global governance agenda.

This “Grand Experiment” known as the constitutional republic of the United States has been under fire even before its very conception. The Founding Fathers knew that “Power Corrupts and Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely”. That’s why the U.S. Constitution with its Bill Of Rights was implemented. The Constitution defines the specific duties of our elected servants in the categorical manner within it. The constitution  does not “give” rights to anybody or any entity. The Bill Of Rights “guarantees” the inalienable rights of people, granted to them by their Creator; they cannot be taken away! It also acknowledges that the states or the people respectively are the ultimate authority in government – “Of, By and For The People”. The Bill Of Rights specifically defines checks and balances to limit abusive powers within the federal government.

Since the careless looting of the people went into overdrive, starting last September, people are “FED UP” and are calling their elected servants to the carpet.

It’s about time. It’s high time that “We The People” demand a representative government that will actually represent “The People”, not the Corporate Lobbyists or Globalists Agendas.

It’s very difficult for me to be non-partisan during this movement for real constitutional representative government; as I’m a Constitutional Libertarian who believes in liberty, smaller government, more freedom and fewer taxes. I just keep praying that folks will wake up, take action and realize that our children, our grand children and their children will have no possible chance of passing the torch of freedom and liberty on to future generations if we keep allowing this globalist course of constitutional destruction to proceed.

The time to self-govern is now!”

Take Action Report for Tennesseans – Anti-Real I.D. Legislation on Floor in Tennessee House & Senate

April 9, 2009

Motions to reject 1984-type Big Brother legislation (National I.D. Cards) need your input! Contact your TN rep’s and let them know that Big Brother is way too big and intrusive already, let alone the unconstitutional Real I.D. Act. We can take care of our own without the expense and intrusion of Big Brother. That’s what the tenth amendment is all about!
