I do the best I can here. I’m not an organizer, but I do hand out DVD’s of Freedom to Fascism and the Citizens Rule book by the hundreds and did a radio interview last year at a Silver City radio station and have a 23 minute copy of the show if you would like to have a copy. I talked about the Constitution, Fully Informed Jury and Freedom Fest.
——– Original Message Ends ——–

I’d like to put this interview on the LPNM site.

I’ve passed this on via email, as well as included in the next New Mexico Liberty, and sent it on to the National Chair, Mark Hinkle.

Agenda for this event

  1. Round-robin introductions (if needed)
  2. State of the Party speech by LPNM State Chair Mike Blessing
  3. Notices about upcoming events
  4. Getting Started as an Activist


After-event review

What went well

  1. We stuck to the posted agenda fairly well – we didn’t get sidetracked much at all.
  2. We had a few new faces at this event – total attendance was twelve, which is double last month’s number.

What needs improving

The venue’s management seated us in the separate room after another group had previously reserved that same room for every Thursday. So at 7:00 PM, we had to move from that room to the main dining room, where we had to raise our voices to be heard over the piano.

Boston Tea Party Response to the 2011 State of the Union

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , — weeklysedition @ 1:17 AM

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.
