My political positions are an admixture of those which would be considered Liberal with those which would be considered Conservative. I believe in protecting individual property rights, and my political guiding principle is the Libertarian Axiom, “No man or group of men may aggress against the person or property rights of any individual”. My philosophy is also radically protective of the environment. I am pro Free-Market and Capitalism. I oppose animal cruelty and exploitation that results in cruelty.
Politically and economically, I’d define myself as a Jeffersonian Minarchist and an adherent of the Austrian School of Economics, especially as refined by Professor Murray Rothbard, although I disagree with him on many issues. In the last presidential election, I voted for Governor Gary Johnson.
I will not be spending any money during my campaign, since I feel the reporting requirements for spending amounts over $750, and the records keeping, are forms of involuntary servitude, and actually make it virtually impossible for “Everyman” to run in an election. These requirements are unconsitutional in my view, and intentionally designed to keep out competition against the two major Fascist parties. Since Libertarians should not comply with involutary servitude unless the legal coercions are so great that the servitude is less onerous than the punishment (for example, not showing up for jury duty and getting cited for contempt of court vs. serving), I will not comply with this form of involuntary servitude, which carries no penalty except that a candidate usually cannot run an effective campaign without spending well in excess of $750.
But elections are won by votes, not money.
As to why I am running, I’d answer with the words of the wise man who asked, “If not me, who? If not now, when?”
I hope you will vote for me, and help bring about a radical non-violent revolution, within the legal framework of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, in America’s putrid political system, and Americans’ consciousness.
Postscript: In 2017 I left the Libertarian Party of Oregon and registered Non-affiliated voter, not because of anything they ever did, but because he National Libertarian Party had failed to remove individuals whose views were, in my view, pernicious and antithetical to Libertarian philosophy. Tragically, the Libertarian brand has been tainted, and the true Libertarians, who don’t believe in races, will have to reform as a Classical Liberal Party, or some-such. The Libertarian National Committee has proven, by its namby-pamby feckless responses, has once again proven that in bureaucracies, (and political parties) the worst rise to the top.
My platform of about 70 specific measures remains online for anyone who cares to adopt it.
