Gage for US Congress
May 23, 2014
End oppressive, unaccountable government. The size of the federal government must be greatly reduced and the welfare/warfare state ended by restricting the government only to those powers granted to it by the Constitution, and returning control of government to the people at the local and state levels.
End the surveillance state. Dismantle Washington, D.C.’s police state spying apparatus, and will end all guilty-until-proven-innocent roadblocks and other Big Brother policies and will return to Americans their privacy rights.
Stop the uncontrolled immigration invasion. Americans never wanted their country to be overwhelmed and fundamentally altered by allowing tens of millions of legal and illegal immigrants to enter and drain endless billions of taxpayer dollars in services. A free country is defined by its borders, language, and culture.
Freedom to Keep and Bear Arms. The ongoing attacks against the Second Amendment only serve to illustrate its primary purpose – to allow the American People to defend themselves when necessary against an abusive government. No gun control or gun confiscation.
Protect traditional Western values. A free people in a healthy society have strong family and marital bonds. Militant feminism and radical homosexuality have been foisted on the American people against their will. It’s time to end the hatred and demonization of men in the media and the bias against men in family law and return to a harmonious and positive balance between men and women that benefits society and both nuclear and extended families.
Freedom of association. Return to Americans their traditional right of freedom of association, including freedom in racial matters, along with the abolishment of all forms of government- and corporate-mandated racial discrimination and racial preferences, such as affirmative action, quotas, and all forms of “sensitivity training.” Freedom of association means that all races, ethnic groups and religions may openly celebrate their heritage and beliefs without interference or harassment from government and from media outlets and privately financed organizations.
Freedom of choice. Freedom of choice in all matters concerning health and medical treatments, as well as the right of parents to home-school their children without governmental interference, and for the return of public schools to local community control.
End oppressive taxation. The Internal Revenue Service with its thousands and thousands of indecipherable and arbitrarily enforced regulations needs to be abolished and replaced with a modest national consumption tax that can fund the legitimate functions of the federal government.
Reject internationalist organizations. America should not be participating in NAFTA, GATT, the WTO, the IMF, the International Bank, the UN, and myriad other globalist institutions. Americans need an ‘America First’ government that protects American jobs and interests rather than always promoting globalism and empire.
Freedom from internal and external interference. Self-determination for all peoples and nations, including the right of secession, while opposing the exploitation or oppression of any country or group of people.
End the bankrupt, unwanted global empire. Freedom is not compatible with a financially and morally bankrupt government that is trying to run the world. It’s time to terminate NATO and substantially reduce the United States’ worldwide military empire of over 700 overseas bases and troops stationed in more than 100 countries and end internal meddling in other countries, while maintaining a strong military for legitimate defensive purposes only. Armed neutrality is America’s traditional foreign policy and is the policy of a free people.
Clean up the environment. A clean environment can be promoted through a balanced approach that doesn’t hurt the free enterprise system. Individuals, businesses and industry should be encouraged to use abundant, non-polluting energy sources such as solar energy.
Freedom to live without fear of crime. A free society recognizes that career criminals need to be off the streets permanently. That said, the U.S. prison complex is inhumane and barbaric and incarcerates far too many people who have committed victimless crimes. The War on Drugs must be ended and marijuana decriminalized.
Freedom of choice in politics and government. Ballot access laws must be equal and fair for all political parties rather than grossly discriminating against “third” parties as most currently do. All votes should be cast on paper ballots to eliminate potential electronic vote fraud. Campaign finance laws must be fair toward all political parties instead of favoring the Democrat and Republican monopoly. The news media has an obligation in a free society to cover all candidates and parties. All candidate debates must include all the candidates on the ballot, not just the Democrats and Republicans.
Freedom of information. The corporate media monopoly and the controlled “news” and disgusting “entertainment” it broadcasts must be broken up as only a well-informed people can be free and retain their freedom. The internet must remain completely unregulated by government and/or large corporations.
