"The estimated depletion date for the Medicare Hospital Insurance trust fund is 2026. Neither of the two old parties is willing to consider Medicare reform that addresses the root cause of the problem. See my solution here.
California's "Top Two" primary system has achieved one of its unstated objectives. No third-party or independent candidate will appear on the ballot in the November General election in the Governor, Lt. Governor, Senate, and 49 of the 53 House district contests. If there's one thing the two old parties agree on, it's that there should only be two parties when it counts.
I will be attending this event on June 12 in Allendale. I plan to use it as an opportunity to speak with voters in the District about how more choices in K-12 education can provide better quality education at a more affordable price.
"A strong case can be made that—with the possible exception of New York—American cities shouldn’t restore deteriorating rail transit systems and instead should shut them down as they wear out, and replace them with buses where demand for transit still exists." As a candidate, I will work to make sure that voters are aware of this approach to providing quality mass transit at an affordable price.
Earlier today, I filed my candidate petitions with the New Jersey Division of Elections in Trenton. Many thanks to the friends, neighbors, and colleagues who helped me exceed, by a large margin, the number of signatures I needed to qualify for the ballot. Looking forward to the campaign.
It is heartening to know that both the liberal and conservative justices (with the exception of Alito) are still committed to protecting our Fourth Amendment rights.
So far, nearly 200 companies have cited the adverse affects of Trump’s tariffs (or the tarriffs imposed in retaliation by foreign governments) in their calls to analysts. Adverse affects include laying off workers, the inability to increase wages, and the need to raise prices to consumers. While the Democratic and Republican parties have both turned protectionist (albeit for different reasons) only the Libertarian Party continues to stand up for the principles and values of free trade.
Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse: "NJ State Treasurer Muoio announced plans to raise the investment return assumption for the state’s grossly underfunded state retirement system from 7.0 to 7.5 percent, which would likely exacerbate its funding shortfalls. Last year, the Public Employees’ Retirement System of New Jersey was just 36.8% funded and $48.9 billion in the red."
Enjoyed collecting signatures for my campaign at the Revolutionary War Roundtable at The Iron Horse Restaurant this evening in Westwood, New Jersey. Nice to be with a group of liberty-oriented individuals, who understand and believe in personal and economic liberty.
Of the top three political parties, only the Libertarian Party is committed to reforming the big-ticket spending items in the Federal budget, controlling spending, reducing taxes, and begin paying down the debt.
Most of the bill's subsidies will not go to small, struggling farms, but rather to the largest and wealthiest agribusinesses. I will work to eliminate this and all other corporate welfare.
It’s not left vs. right. It’s libertarians vs. authoritarians. We reject both the nanny state and the daddy state. We advocate for the grown-up state. You decide how to live your personal and professional lives, while allowing others to do the same.
“The RFS program has failed to achieve its stated policy objectives of improving the environment and promoting energy independence. Rather, it primarily exists today as a handout for corn farmers.” If you elect me in November, I will vote for immediate termination of this program.
57% of respondents also said a third party or multiple political parties is necessary. I will give voters in NJ’s 5th congressional district that choice in November. Please help me get my message of personal and economic liberty out to them by making a donation to my campaign.
Pleased to be here with Pete Rohrman, Vice Chair NJLP and Maria Bell, Chair Northern Region.
Ranked choice voting would help level the playing field for third-party and independent candidates. It would enable voters to vote for their true first choice, without the concern that doing so might tilt the election to the major party candidate they hate the most. There is nothing more frustrating for a third party candidate than to be told, “I’d vote for you if I thought you could win.” Ranked choice voting eliminates that obstacle. It should be implemented at both the Federal level and state level. Given that the largest number of voters are registered as Unaffiliated, and dissatisfaction with the two old parties is at an all time high, the time is now.
"Hope Anthem" will be the theme song for my campaign. Hope is on the way.
