STOLEN GOVERNMENT

WHY YOUR REPRESENTATIVE CANNOT REPRESENT YOU,

AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT.

By Charles Key

Outline

1: Representatives Cannot Represent

2: The Tyranny of the Rules

3: Protecting the Status Quo

4: How Good Legislators Go Bad

5: Government by the People – the Proposal for Open Government

6: Three Avenues for Change

7: Answering Objections

8: What Can I Do?

Abstract:

The person you elected to protect your interests and propose policy on your behalf has no assurance of being able to do anything because all the legislative power in the state is concentrated in the hands of the Senate President Pro Tempore (Pro Tempe) and the Speaker of the House of Representatives (Speaker).

It does not matter what our elected officials want to accomplish on our behalf.  The Pro Tempe and the Speaker meet in secret caucuses and in private offices to decide which bills to hear and which bills to kill.


I will outline for you one of the biggest reasons why representative government does not work as it once did. This problem exists in almost every state and in Congress. 

When you understand what this problem is, you will clearly see that it underlies many other issues, and that changing it will help make other reforms possible. 

I am going to teach you the step-by-step system you can use to fix this problem in your state. Once you see what needs to be done, you will be prepared to take action and remove a major barrier to true representative government.

Yes, the Ron Paul Institute is coming back to town!

The third annual Ron Paul Institute Washington, DC, Peace and Prosperity Conference includes a special focus on the symbiosis between the mainstream media and the warfare state.

How does the mainstream media promote war and how does the war machine promote the mainstream media?

How do the militarist interventionists collude with the mainstream media to prevent alternative media from having a voice?

Remember "Prop Or Not"?

The Atlancic Council?

“Hamilton 68"?

How does the US government misuse its citizens' money to propagandize them into supporting endless, winless, pointless wars?

To propagandize them into viewing any alternative media questioning the permanent warfare state as "unpatriotic" or even "agents of a foreign power"?

Keynote speaker will be retired US Representative and former three-time US presidential candidate Ron Paul.

And a great line-up of the most cutting-edge thinkers on the topic of media and war:

Nassim Nicholas Taleb: essayist, scholar, statistician, former trader, and risk analyst.

Author of New York Times Bestselling books, The Black Swan  ("one of the twelve most influential books since World War II") and Skin in the Game, among others

Gerald Celente: World renowned trends forecaster and founder of the Trends Research Institute.

Col. Lawrence Wilkerson: former chief-of-staff to US Secretary of State Colin Powell. Professor, William and Mary University. Ron Paul Institute Board Member.

Col. Douglas Macgregor: A frequent guest on the top-ranked Tucker Carlson show, Col. Macgregor is a decorated combat veteran, Ph.D. and author of four books.

John W. Whitehead: founder and president of the non-profit, champion of civil liberties, Rutherford Institute.

James Jatras: Attorney, former US State Department official, and former US Senate senior staffer. View his article archive here.

Caitlin Johnstone: Self-described "rogue journalist" focusing on war, peace, coalition-building, ruffling establishment feathers.

Daniel McAdams: Former Ron Paul Congressional staffer. Ron Paul Institute executive director. Co-host, Ron Paul Liberty Report.

Paul-Martin Foss: Former Ron Paul Congressional staffer and US House Financial Services Committee staffer.

Adam Dick: Former Ron Paul Congressional staffer. Author, A Tipping Point for Liberty: Exposing and Defeating Leviathan Government.  Senior Fellow, Ron Paul Institute.

Norman Singleton: Former Ron Paul Congressional staffer. President, Campaign for Liberty.

Chris Rossini: author, Set Money Free: What Every American Needs To Know About The Federal Reserve. Ron Paul Liberty Report co-host and webmaster.

Conference tickets include coffee and tea throughout the day as well as a full, hot lunch.

The cost to attend is $175 per person.

Constitution Party attending June 7 - 9, 2018, Road to Majority conference

posted May 5, 2018, 11:46 AM by Website Administrator   [ updated May 5, 2018, 11:54 AM ]

Constitution Party attending
Road to Majority conference


The Constitution Party has a table at the Thursday, June 7 through Saturday, June 9, 2018, Road to Majority conference hosted by the Faith & Freedom Coalition at the below location.

Omni Shoreham Hotel
2500 Calvert Street, NW
Washington, DC 20008

More than 2,000 grassroots activists from across the country plan to attend.

The purpose of the conference is to energize, train, and equip activists on voter registration, voter education, get-out-the-vote, lobbying their legislature, talking with the media, building a precinct organization, and utilizing social media to mobilize supporters.

The Constitution Party will be on promoting the party's "Three Pillars" of good government policies at the conference.


Pillar One INTEGRITY

We are committed to restoring honesty, integrity, and accountability to government.

Do you laugh when you hear a politician say that they are a person of honesty and integrity?

Do you disbelieve just about every promise that political candidates make when running for office?

Do you think that this is the proper relationship between the people and their elected officials?

The Constitution Party solemnly makes this promise to you:

We will hold all our party officers and leaders strictly accountable for their conduct.

They will be held to the highest ethical standards in dealing with the public, donors, government officials, and candidates.

Corrupt candidates come from corrupt parties. Honest and honorable candidates can only come from a party that insists that all its leaders have the same characteristics.

When interviewing potential candidates, a history and reputation of their character, integrity, and commitment to honesty will be just as important as their commitment to Constitution Party principles.

We will only be seeking candidates that accept and recognize that all elected officials are Public Servants.

We are seeking Representatives, not Rulers.

Most importantly, Constitution Party candidates will be strongly encouraged to sign a contract with the voters that lists the campaign promises that they will guarantee to accomplish while in office or face consequences.

WHY A CONTRACT? When you deal with businesses and people that you do not know, the contract is the instrument that we use to ensure that both parties will keep their promises.

Our politicians have shown that they cannot be trusted with their promises and we are not going to ask you to trust us.

We will EARN IT  by signing a contract that specifically lists the promises that our candidate makes and requires them to keep them.

The Constitution of the United States is a contract between the government and the people. Why should candidates be exempted from a contract?

Pillar Two LIBERTY

We feel that: “Government is the most ineffective, inefficient, and most expensive way to get anything done.”

As such, we are offering innovative and effective non-government solutions to the country’s social spending issues.

Are you tired of government spending trillions of dollars on social issues and the problem seems to be getting worse?

Do you think that we should SOLVE the issues of poverty, hunger, and homelessness instead of just FUNDING them?

Do you feel that most of the money that is taken from you for social spending is just ending up in the pockets of government bureaucrats and organizations that donate heavily to politicians?

The Constitution Party boldly declares to America that:

The Federal Government should only be involved in government roles as outlined in the Constitution.

The best government is local government.

As a society, we should be solving social spending issues via non-government organizations that want to SOLVE the problem, not just FUND the problem.

We should seek out those organizations that have the best solutions.

The solution is to slowly and responsibly transition America from ineffective government programs to effective non-government institutions.

Our solution will ensure that recipients of current government programs are still cared for but allows for more effective solutions to be implemented.

The solution is not to simply cut funding and abandon those that need our help. Instead, we need to responsibly ensure that we fulfill our social responsibilities to take care of those in need.

We also need to work on SOLVING the problems and coming up with innovative programs that will help restore American families to being productive citizens that are self-sufficient and able to pursue the happiness that America offers to all.

Government has had plenty of time and plenty of money. 

They have proven that they aren't effective in resolving these complex issues.

It is time for a change.

Pillar ThreePROSPERITY

We want to create the greatest economy for the U.S. that the world has ever seen.

We will do so by restoring True Capitalist (vice Crony Capitalist) principles to our economic policies.

Are you aware that over 50% of all small businesses will fail within 3 years and that only 33% of all businesses can make it to 10 years?

Does that sound like a country of prosperity and opportunity to you?

Did you know that government involvement in business is listed as one of the largest factors for these failures?

Did you know that Small Businesses make up 99.7% of the businesses in the United States yet share a higher tax burden than the large corporations that make up the 0.3%?

Is This Fair? Is This Right? Is This Healthy for Our Economy?

The Constitution Party believes:

That Small Businesses, not large corporations, are the key to a healthy economy.

That True Capitalism is achieved by allowing strong competition among companies.

In order to have the best pricing, the best products, and the best services, you need to ensure that every company has an even playing field and can fairly compete for our business.

That job creation comes from business creation and growth.

Removal of restrictive government regulation, fees, and taxes combined with responsible trade agreements with foreign governments will ensure massive business and job growth.

It is both dangerous and illogical to think that we can have a sustainable economy without having manufacturing in our country. We need to start producing the products that we use if we want jobs and economic security.

True Capitalism rejects restrictive government taxation and over regulation of businesses.

Government should only be involved to keep things fair, keep us safe, and prevent criminal activity.

Businesses can't be the government piggy bank for supporting uncontrolled spending habits.
