A Republican, who is currently a Whitley County Council member, today announced his bid to win the Indiana 3rd District U.S. Congress seat as a Libertarian.

This begins Scott Wise’s America First Campaign which is based on 3 planks:
1). Put America First: America deserves a government that addresses our most pressing concerns directly. We must change the “Business as Usual” mentality of our government, especially after 9/11 and the newly understood realities of the world we live in.
2). Cut the Fat: The overwhelming size and waste in our bloated Federal government is suffocating us. We should strive for negative growth in the Federal budget for the next 10 years.
3). Control Immigration: America needs orderly, enforced immigration and secure borders.

“Washington is out of touch with the American people. It is a sad state of affairs when the best interests of the American people rank behind re-election concerns and party loyalty,” said Wise. Wise seeks to build a bi-partisan coalition in the House of Representatives focused on the best interests of the country, its people, and its future.

Wise is 38 years old. He is a lifelong resident of the 3rd district having lived or worked in Whitley, Noble, Lagrange, Elkhart and Kosciusko counties.
He graduated from Westview High School in 1985, and from Indiana University – South Bend in 1993, where his studies included public affairs and foreign relations.

Scott has been involved in his community by coaching boys ½ pint baseball and kindergarten soccer, he is a former board member of the Columbia City Area Chamber of Commerce where he helped develop a team that started a community leadership training program in Whitley County. He currently serves on the Whitley County Council as a Republican and has worked hard for the local Republican Party in fundraisers and events.

“The Republican Party talks a good game,” says Wise, “but its record is far from fiscally conservative, and they do not seem to act responsibly on the pressing issues of the day. It is time for a third party to stand up and demand the American people’s place at the table, and the Libertarian Party of Indiana is poised to do just that.”

So, near as I can figure it, the political scene has turned into three camps;
Democrats
Republicans
and Professional Politicians.

I fear that the later has become the majority, and to be sure, there seems to be absolutely nothing we can do about it.

I am a registered rep[ublican, and believe me, when the contract with america came down the pike, I WAS ON THAT BOAT! For one big issue.

TERM LIMITS!

Without term limits, there will be only a continuance of the dribble those clowns call government.

And, of course, they did vote on it, those professional politicians, and of course, what was the vote?

Why don't we just ask the weasels if the farmer should put up a fence?

Mike what are your views on a return to Constitutional money and ridding the US of the Federal Reserve?

LP Mike Sylvester said...

Boneman:

Term limits are key.

Mike:

Wow. I have no idea... I know that are policies are selling us up the river; but, I know little about money systems on the whole.

What do you think?

We operate under a fiat money system which our Founding Fathers warned against. Money was specifically defined in the Constitution.

Congress was given the money over money in the Constitution, but gave away that power to a cabal of banks with the Federal Reserve system. Our currency has lost over 90% of its value since Nixon closed the Gold Window in 1971.

You can read "Creature From Jekyll Island; A Second Look at the Federal Reserve" for an education. It is fascinating reading.
I would be happy to answer any questions to further your education. Sounds like you are moving in the right direction if you adhere to Libertarian principles.
As to the Drug War, "If we can't keep drugs out of prison, how do we keep them out of the U.S.?"
