2012 Presidential Election

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , — Joe De Luca @ 8:39 pm

Just voted for Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party) for President.

Now, let’s sit back and watch the results come in.

A couple things to note:

  • Election judges at my polling place did not ask for any ID. I think that’s kind of odd.
  • Not getting a voting receipt is always frustrating.
  • Also, polls closing at 7pm is kind of early. Let’s remember that a lot of people work!

I live in Illinois (suburban Cook County, aka Crook County).

My Political Platform

Filed under: Economy, Politics — Tags: , , , — Joe De Luca @ 4:51 pm

I’m not running for office, but if I were, the following would be some of my platform issues:

Electoral Reform:
Reform or abolish the electoral college. End the two-party system. Open and non-partisan primaries. Open ballots. Open and fair national debates. Direct democracy. Referenda. No gerrymandering. No media-bias. Political recalls.

Monetary Reform:
End the Federal Reserve,  and fractional reserve banking. Introduce usury-free money. Allodial title.

Education:
Stop dumbing-down our children.

Plus:
Restore value to life (pro-life does not just refer to abortion, it also includes capital punishment, and wars). End daylight saving time (let’s stay on standard time). Promote natural law. Tax pollution. Let’s embrace “alternative” / free energy, like: solar, wind, geothermal. Let’s phase out “safe” nuclear, “clean” coal, and hydrocarbons. Freedom, and civil liberties. No government interference, and over-regulation. No corporate lobbyists. Stop frivolous lawsuits. Less doctors. Less lawyers.

The presidential candidate that best embraces these ideals is Ralph Nader.

Simple Election Day Checklist

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , — Joe De Luca @ 9:41 am

On Tuesday, November 4:

  • Ask for a paper ballot, if your precinct / polling place has that choice.
  • Vote third party for every race… national, state, local… not just for the presidency.

Thank you!

Gomorrah

Filed under: Ecology, Economy, Health, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , — Joe De Luca @ 2:29 pm

Gomorrah, by Roberto Saviano, is an excellent read for anyone who would like to better understand the intricacies of the camorra. You will see how the camorra controls the economy and influences politics at the local and international level. I applaud the author for his courage and integrity. The last chapter of the book “Land of Fires” covers the neopalitan waste management racket.

Letter To CNN Goes Unanswered

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , — Joe De Luca @ 3:36 pm

About two weeks ago I sent an email to CNN, mostly to show my disgust with the current presidential race coverage.

[Dear CNN, as “the most trusted name in news” you have the moral responsibility to be fair, honest, and unbiased in your reporting. Your job is not to influence and condition the will of the people.

As it pertains to the current presidential race, it may seem that your network gives preferential treatment to Clinton, Obama, McCain, and Huckabee, while ignoring the “unelectables”.

Let me politely point out that Mike Gravel, and Ron Paul are still in the race. They have not dropped-out as far as we all know. Not to mention your lack of coverage of the third parties.

Please just report the facts and don’t take sides.]

CNN has not responded. I wasn’t expecting a direct response, however, not even a hint of a cookie-cutter acknowledgement?

Ralph Nader Makes Another Run

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , — Joe De Luca @ 1:46 pm

To paraphrase Ralph…noboby should tell you not to vote, or who to vote for, and anyone wanting to run should be able to. That is a true democracy. No bureaucracy. No red tape. There are only three requirements to run for the candidacy. Minimum of 35 years of age, be a natural born US citizen, and 14 years of residency.

It goes without saying that the more people run for office, the more choices we have. Forget about whether a third party candidate has any real chance of winning. The answer is, at least under the current system, no. What this is really about is giving people a voice. It’s about non-violent protest. It’s about sending a message to the establishment.

When enough people wake up to the fact that the current system is closer to an oligarchy than a democracy, only then will we get closer to a free and open society.

Presidential Family Tree and the Windsor Connection

It may be a shock to some, but the reality is that most United States of America presidents have a genealogical connection to the British royal family, or other European monarchies. Even the “unbiased” mainstream media has reported that Barack Obama and Dick Cheney are not so distant cousins. We also know that Obama and George Bush are cousins, and the same with Bush and Cheney.

We know that the people don’t choose the president or vice-president. Our trusted presidential electors have the privilege of doing that, with the help of our infamous electoral college and duopoly system. Can we say, without sounding like crackpots, that our leaders are chosen by birth, not by ballot?

Super Duper Tuesday: Vote for Ron Paul, the Real Change

Tomorrow twenty-four states will hold either primaries or caucuses for at least one party. Whatever you do, vote for the presidential candidate that best represents your beliefs. Don’t be swayed by polls, the media, or whether your state is historically considered a blue or red state, or by people telling you that your candidate has no chance of winning.

Do not vote for your typical, cookie cutter, status quo politician. Vote for real change, vote for a cultural revolution. Vote for Ron Paul!

If you are for peace, for life, against big government, against forced vaccinations, there is only one choice. Ron Paul!

The two issues that are perpetually raised, by presidential candidates and the media, are the Iraq War and the Economy. First all all, let’s remember that the U.S. military is not just in Iraq but all over the world, whether fighting an undeclared war or acting as “peace keeper”. Ron Paul will stop the Empire building. As a result, fewer lives will be lost and terrorist threats will decrease, if not stop all together.

As far as the economy, the U.S. military is one of the biggest expenses that we have. It’s very simple: no wars = no debt. We could finally balance the budget and put an end to the slumping economy, this just by stop being the bully of the world.

Let’s vote for good change, not bad change. We cannot allow another George W. Bush to be put in office.

And as a final note, I would encourage everyone to use a paper ballot. That will increase the chances of your vote being counted.

The Truth Hurts!

Question: Why is Dennis Kucinich systematically excluded from national debates?

Answer: For the same reason that Dr. Ron Paul is excluded from most national polls conducted by the media. The powers that be, are afraid that if we are allowed to listen to their message, good will prevail over evil. The media does their best to condition and passively brainwash us, by feeding us the same garbage 24 hours a day. By systematically pretending that the two best candidates don’t exit, they hope that Americans will just give in and decide to not vote for their “unelectable” candidate, and vote for one of the chosen ones.

As we know, the mainstream media is simply a mouthpiece for the corrupt elite that have been running this country for quite some time. CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, CNN, MSNBC…they are all the same!

And, stop reporting on the life and times of Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and the likes whenever there is a lull in the world of news. There are other networks (MTV, VH1, E!…) that cover those fascinating news. If it’s a slow news day, put up a map of the world so our children learn some geography.

Ron Paul is for real change. Good change. Not the “change” that all the other candidates are babbling about. Take a close look at the issues and voting records, and give me a good reason why this man shouldn’t be our next president.

So, why is Dr. Paul shunned by the media, big government, and corruptorations? Well, because he is for less government involvement in peoples lives. He is for free markets. Against the war and Empire building. But, the biggest reason is that he wants to eliminate the Federal Reserve and Income Tax.

What does our not so distant American history tell us about revolutionists speaking against the mighty Federal Reserve? The independently owned Federal Reserve. The institution that creates money backed by NOTHING!

President John F. Kennedy was assassinated because he was going to eliminate the Federal Reserve. Ohio congressman James Traficant is serving an eight year prison term for his Bankruptcy of the United States speech. What’s happening to Ron Paul irritates me, but doesn’t surprise me. In the end Ron Paul and the revolution will prevail.

Let’s take back our liberties.
