Andy Nunez (R? — Hatch)

2012 Hero Update — It sounds like 2012 NMBC HERO Andy Nunez has plans for improving our state and is making an important announcement TODAY [August 6]. Former State Representative and Mayor of Hatch, will hold a press conference at the Secretary of State’s office in Santa Fe today, August 6th, 2013 at 10:00 am. According to information out yesterday, Mr. Nunez will officially change his voter registration and then make an announcement about his future endeavors on behalf of this great state.

The NMBC knows Mr. Nunez well, a native New Mexican who has always been dedicated to the well-being of our state. He served as a state representative from 2001 through 2012 and is currently serving as the Mayor of Hatch. We can’t wait to see what his plans are!

——– Original Message Ends ——–

Since 2011, Nuñez has been registered as an “Independent” (officially known as “Decline To State” or “DTS” in New Mexico) since dropping out of the Jackass Clique.

Yesterday (Tuesday, 6 August 2013), Nuñez announced that he’s now a Republican in order to seek a return to the State House seat he once held as a Democrat and an “Independent.” See here for the details –

http://watchdog.org/99493/nm-politician-goes-from-democrat-to-independent-to-republican/

So he’s joining the Republicans after the McCleskey Clique of the NMGOP stabbed him in the back in the 2012 elections – from the above article:

Despite consistently voting with Republicans and carrying a controversial bill aimed at repealing the state law granting driver’s licenses to undocumented workers, Nuñez saw a political action committee of Republican Gov. Susana Martinez send out mailers against him, Nuñez said.

The question for those who support the ideals of free-market economics, Constitutionally-limited government, individual rights and public-sector fiscal restraint is this:

Now that Nuñez is in the GOP camp, will he bend his knee to accept the leash and yoke from the McCleskey Clique?

Will Nuñez sign off on the Bush / McCain / Romney version of Big Government Keynesianism when McCleskey et al deem doing so to be politically expedient?

Will Nuñez become a rural version of Albuquerque’s Richard Berry, stumping for big, expensive projects like the APS West Side stadium and the 50-mile bike path around Albuquerque?

That IS what seems to be necessary to get into the good graces of the GOP party-archs headed up by John Billingsley. As it seemed to be during the reigns of Harvey Yates, Monty Newman, etc., etc.

For example, Susana Martinez has basically signed off on ObamaCare, creating a “state-level health-care exchange” as mandated by Obama’s copy-and-paste job from RomneyCare in Massachusetts. It was initially billed as a website where consumers could compare health care plans – sort of a medical version of Priceline.com (or Pricewatch.com) or Travelocity. So why exactly does such a site require a thirteen-member Board of Directors?

And then she supported expanding Medicare, as called for in ObamaCare.

What gives?

Those who put the principles of free-market economics, Constitutionally-limited government, individual rights and public-sector fiscal restraint above any sort of partisan affiliation want to know.

Another question for Billingsley and McCleskey:

Why should we care about your Democrat-wannabe candidates who profess to support the above-mentioned principles during election seasons, then blow off those same principles after getting elected?

I cite both of the Bush Presidents, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Heather Wilson and Rudy Giuliani as examples here.

I prefer an up-front opponent than a back-stabber professing friendship any day of the week.

About the CPB, Republicans and Statism

FYI: In addition to foundation money, tax dollars are also given to the CPB which runs PBS stations around the nation. The taxpayer is not asked whether he wishes to contribute. That should be stopped and we have the right to demand it.

Starting in 1994, the Republicans have been promising to do exactly this – defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting – during most if not all election seasons.

From 1994 to 2007, the Republicans held majorities in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate.

Yet the CPB never lost a penny in funding.

Thus, either the Republicans are so incompetent that they are unable to organize enough votes to defund the CPB while they hold legislative majorities . . .

OR

There are enough Republicans for whom this particular issue is nothing more than PR copy for their re-election campaigns – “red meat for the conservatives,” soon to be forgotten after getting another term. Then when CPB’s budget comes up for renewal, they find “reasons” to vote in favor of it.

I disagree that “we have no voice.” We have plenty of voices. And we do have access to the media.

In these days of Blogspot, WordPress and YouTube, media access for the common citizen keeps getting easier and easier.

In my judgement the causes of the Republican point of view not being disseminated merits an essay.

What exactly is the “Republican point of view” ?

There seems to be a misconception out there in GOP circles that the Republican Party is about free markets, Constitutionally-limited government, individual rights and public sector fiscal restraint.

Given the track records of John McCain, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush and Richard Nixon, that can hardly be true. The federal government never shrunk much if any in terms on expense or intrusiveness under any of the administrations of the above presidents.

Even under “The Gipper” Ronald Reagan, the GOP’s patron saint of the 20th Century, the expense and intrusiveness of Washington DC expanded greatly. Reagan talked a decent game, but never really walked the walk.

Nor did President-wannabe Romney shrink government at the state level while he was Governor of Massachusetts.

While Senator-wannabe Heather Wilson was in the U.S. House as a “representative” for New Mexico’s 1st District, she enthusiastically supported the single biggest expansion of the welfare state in the “Oughts” of the 21st Century – Medicare Part D, signed into “law” by George W. Bush in 2003.

So why exactly should people who DO care about free markets, Constitutionally-limited government, individual rights and public sector fiscal restraint care in the slightest about the “Republican point of view” ?

He made his money through valuable capitalist methods: individual rights of privately owned property, voluntary trade, limited government and free markets. But in his basic premises he is wedded to the welfare state, which means the principle of unlimited government. In other words: statism.

I know the original comment was about Bill Gates, but this was and is also true of Mittens Romney, the GOP’s 2012 presidential offering.

Libertarians Should Be libertarians First

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — weeklysedition @ 11:08 PM

No, that’s NOT a typo in the title. If it’s grammatically incorrect, the mistake is an intentional one on my part.

I simply posit that in order for Big-L Libertarians (members of the Libertarian Party) to be the most effective in spreading the message, they should first strive to be the best small-l libertarians that they can. This goes not only for what they say on the campaign trail, but also after being elected to office, should they win that election. And, more importantly, in their private personal lives.

For candidates, party officials and members in public office, I recommend the same sort of stance that I’ve adopted as the editorial stance of New Mexico Liberty — at least, do no harm — don’t make government worse, more expensive, or more intrusive. We may not agree on how much government should remain when we’re done, what to cut first or how fast to go, but let’s not make the problem worse.

Candidates, Purges and Principles

Re: Time for a Purge?

Neil —

I just read your article “Time for a Purge?” and am somewhat amused at the latest from the Watergate Gang.

This press release from Cory really makes me wonder what the dues of the LPUS’s Sustaining Members are going for. I was under the impression that Cory was hired to run the day-to-day operations of the Libertarian Party’s Watergate office.

A question for Shane Cory — How does calling for MORE State action help to fufill the LP’s professed mission of SHRINKING the State?

My answer — It DOESN’T. So what business does the Executive Director of organization supposedly dedicated to shrinking the State have in calling for more State activity?

And I think that the War on Kiddie Porn will go the same route as the Wars on Drugs and Terror — as an excuse for Democrats and Republicans to expand the reach and expense of the State, regardless of what their constituents say, never mind common sense, the Constitution, the rule of law. And where Cory & Co. are concerned, regardless of the Non-Aggression Principle.

As for the presidential candidate who congratulated this insanity, it wouldn’t be Christine Smith, would it?

KC Photos; Shane Cory; Buttons
Open letter to Shane Cory (LP Exec. Dir.) & Andrew Davis (LP Media Coordinator)

This comes as a disappointment to me, as I was operating under the assumption that Smith was one of the more principled candidates. My main fear about her was that she would burn out, being such a high-energy candidate.

But not to fear — another potential nominee has been dropping the ball. This would be former GOP congressman Bob Barr. Allegedly the Bob Barr Leadership Fund has been making campaign contributions to Republican candidates who were opposing Libertarian candidates, while the BBLF wasn’t making ANY donations to the Libertarian candidates. All of this while Bob Barr has been a sitting member of the LNC.

The page from the FEC ‘s PAC database

We in the LPNM had a guy who did this kind of schtick. Back in 2005, he had announced that he was seeking the LPNM’s nomination for U.S. Senate. At the time, he was the Vice-Chair of the LPNM. Come March 2006, he says that “If nominated, I’ll use my campaign to stump for Jeff Bingaman.” Bingaman was (and still is) the Democrat incumbent. He didn’t show up at that year’s (rump) State Convention two weeks later in Rio Rancho. I wonder why?

Fast-forward about two months later, and he announces that he’s forming the“Independent Voters of New Mexico” with the Green Party’s perennial traitor, Abraham Gutmann. As one of the leaders of this outfit, he endorsed then-New Mexico Attorney General Patsy Madrid for U.S. Congress, 1st Congressional District, against Democrat-wannabe Heather Wilson. (I’m NO fan of Wilson, either.) Given that Madrid had used her powers of office as State Attorney General in an attempt to kill off the LPNM as an organization, what business does a sitting officer of the LPNM do having ANYTHING good to say about her?

As for purging the undesireable members from the Libertarian Party, I don’t know that the Party has any specific mechanism for doing that. Is that good or bad? I’ll leave that question for the readership to answer for themselves. It seems to me that those who think along the lines of Carl Milsted and Eric Dondero like to conduct their purges by playing games with the membership and credentials rules, so as to cut the radical and principled elements out of the loop [1].

I say this in sharp contrast to those of us from the radical side — when we are deemed to have purged someone of the Milsted/Dondero side from the LP’s ranks, it’s mostly that person who was “purged” simply heard, “You’re full of shit” one too many times from other LP members.

[1] The current State Chair of the LPNM, Jay Vandersloot, while a member of the “Reform” Caucus started by Milsted, has no problem with Bill Koehler and I being in the radical camp. In fact, when Jay hears complaints about Bill and I from others, Jay will back us up, asking the complainer, “What have YOU done to advance the cause?”

UPDATE — 12 May 2008 11:28 PM — Apparently Shane Cory is no longer working at the Watergate, resigning last week.
