Ballot Access: A game designed by incumbents for incumbents; The reason why few good men and women run for public office — Part I
by on August 28, 2012
Around the time of my life that I became eligible for an AMAC card, I began to pay a lot more attention to the machinations of our local, state and our national governments. As I approached sixty years of age, I turned my attention from computer topics and I began to research and write about political and patriotic subjects. In the 1980’s, I began to write books. I mean a lot of books. I stopped for about ten years as I got my technical consulting practice going, but I picked it up quite a bit as the millennium approached. So far, I have written forty-seven books and well over 100 articles for various magazines and e-magazines on a number of topics—technical and patriotic. Prior to my latest book, which is titled, Take the Train to Myrtle Beach, my last seven books were about patriotic topics. As a computer consultant for IBM and in my own consultancy in recent years, I found that the best way to learn a topic was to figure out how to teach it. The more interested I became in our US government, the more I read; the more I researched; and the more I wrote. I titled my first patriotic book Taxation Without Representation, as like many of you I had gotten more than annoyed that our representatives in all aspects of government choose to represent themselves, rather than the people. It got me so riled up that I decided that I was going to do something about it. I ran for Congress in 2010 and I ran for the US Senate in 2012.
Ballot Access: A game designed by incumbents for incumbents; The reason why few good men and women run for public office — Part II
When I ran for Congress in 2010 in Pennsylvania, trying to unseat a 13-term statue that had made family profiteering an accepted ritual, I chose not to accept a dime of contributions. I wanted to have nothing to do with the corruption that brings good people down and makes them indebted to their benefactors. I had all good intentions, and because of that I refused to permit anybody to call me a politician. One day, I was a professor at a University and an IT consultant in private practice, and the next day, simply because I chose to run for elected office, just about everybody that I knew saw me as a politician and they told me so to my face. They did not see it as a slight. They figured that anybody who runs for office has a hidden agenda and is thus a politician.

All citizens know that it is the incumbent politician who, in the end, benefits the most from all of the restrictive ballot access laws that they are able to write while in office. By writing the laws, the incumbent is the only one who knows where all the gates are located, and the incumbent has the keys to all the gates. He or she knows the passwords and the incantations, the special handshakes, and all that is necessary to open all the gates necessary to assure a head-start for the incumbent above all challengers in any election. As you too have experienced in your home towns, incumbents are not merely satisfied with rigging the ballot. They pull the same stuff on the public (voters)—well, more particularly, their loyal constituency. Many citizens feel that they and they alone have favored access to incumbents. So, they unabashedly become part of the problem. The favored often have their hands out for alms, hoping to jump the line and receive something for themselves from the raw power of the incumbent’s office.

Corrupt media vilify Romney’s 47% comments but absolve Obama of total incompetence! Part I
Don’t fight City Hall and don’t try to fight a corrupt and spineless national press corps, especially the newspaper and TV industries. Radio is our last best hope. Sarah Palin in frustration with the media making news rather than reporting it aptly labeled the new corrupt press as the “lame stream media.” Though this label resonates well with conservatives, this media is not lame at all. They are quite alive and quite vicious. Their message however is lame. The old adage to “believe half of what you hear and none of what you see,” does not apply to this new media. Believe none of their blather and your conclusions will be sounder. Radio, an inferior media for sure, is the best chance at getting good and factual news today. The TV and newspaper sides of the media are a willing extension of our progressive government. They are cold and calculating and in cahoots. The truth does not matter at all. They are 100% in the tank for Obama or any socialist progressive and are for themselves and not for the people. They mirror today’s government and provide cover for its actions. Rather than exposing lies, they tell lies to advance progressive agendas. They are devious and dishonest and not deserving of any of America’s attention. More and more Americans have written them off, yet they still stand. In many ways, they convince only those who are already convinced.

The corrupt media and progressive politicians have been in celebration mode since their 47% onslaught created big issues for Mitt Romney. Just when it was needed the most, they were able to create a diversion to make up for Obama’s abject failure in the Middle East firestorm that’s been going on the last several weeks. The outright lies put out unabashedly by administration minions regarding the Libyan murders had not helped Obama’s cause. However, the corrupt media did its best to make it all Romney’s fault by changing the issue. Apparently Bush was not available. Once they decided to scald Romney for the motherjones.com tape that they began to play about the 47% gaffe, Obama seemed to be off the hook for good. But, now all of a sudden, the Obama team is scrambling trying to find cover for their cover-ups.
