to endorse John Jay Myers for US House from Texas’ 32rd District

I think this is a distinctly bad idea. Have you any information to suggest that Myers endorses the platform?

He appears to favour increasing the size and scope of government at the local level. This is not consistent with the platform.

He appears to favour a major border policy that would involve at least as much size and scope as the current border. He does not indicate a desire to reduce the size and scope of government on this issue, at any level.

He does not have published positions on his web site about any number of issues. He should certainly be quizzed directly by a member of the national committee, such as Darryl who now shares a central Missouri connection with Myers.

If he endorses the platform, fine. All sorts of weird people seem to think they can do so without giving up their absurd Iron Curtain ideas.

Agreed. This seems to be part and parcel of operating a “third” or “minor” political party. I’ve seen this before with the LP as well — there are plenty of shitbirds with an axe to grind or a pet project to publicize who seek to run for office on the LP or BTP ticket.

What to do about this? I have some ideas, but I can’t release them at the moment.

I have no problems with immigration, i have a problem with illegal immigration. That’s where the problem is. I live in a state with a dry foot, wet foot policy. I think Slick Willie( Bill Clinton) started that, because of the boat load of Haitians coming to South Florida.

Immigration, legal or illegal, is a red herring. The real problems are the welfare state and Drug Prohibition.

Quote of the Day, 21 September 2010

“I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is ‘needed’ before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents’ ‘interests,’ I shall reply that I was informed their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can.”

    Always remember that “Nazi” is a contraction of “National _Socialist_” –

    “We are socialists, we are enemies of today’s capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are determined to destroy this system under all conditions.”
    – Adolf Hitler, Speech of May 1, 1927
