GOP Nomination Contest Could Be the Ballgame

We support Ron Paul for president, at least for now; not that we would support any of the Republican presidential candidates except Paul (and possibly Gary Johnson if we knew more than next to nothing about him), but their nomination contest is beginning to look more important everyday, since it looks like Obama will soon be signing the nullification of the Bill of Rights codification that just passed in the pathetic 112th Congress. Even though this particular provision in the defense authorization bill may become law if Obama signs the bill, it would really not be the law, since it clearly overrides the Constitution, and Congress cannot do that through a simple bill that is not an amendment to the Constitution, and not ratified by the necessary super-majority of the states. We think that Obama would be undermining his re-election campaign if he actually signs the bill, which at this time, we're not really sure if he hasn't already. We have a feeling that there won't be a signing ceremony for this one, and if it is signed, it will probably be signed as secretly as possible, and perhaps the mainstream media would let us know one way or the other.

Back to why the Republican nomination contest is suddenly very significant, because if Obama signs the nullification, it's beginning to look like they will actually nominate the next president, barring a strong third-party or independent presidential contender getting in the race. Obama will probably lose about 20% of his base by signing this bill, including that part that he's already lost by his poor to mediocre performance in the executive office. We don't think he can win with one-fifth of his base gone, which makes us wonder why his political advisers are not telling him that signing the aforementioned bill is political madness. Speaking of madness, this bill got broad bi-partisan support in Congress, and we still don't know who the particular members of the Washington state delegation, if any, who voted for it, because the mainstream media has been playing down this very important story, the same way that they play down many other very important stories that they would rather not the common folk, like us, get too excited about. We will do our own research on who voted for this bill from Washington and will be publishing their names right here on Commoner. Anybody who voted for it should be voted out of Congress, of course. In effect, those who voted for it don't respect the 5th and 6th Amendments (USC), which guarantees our right to a trial by jury if we are charged with a crime. Just because you think that you will never be charged with a crime is not a good reason not to support this long cherished part of our Constitution. This bill makes indefinite detention without trial "legal" for both American citizens and non-citizens alike.

Since the Republican nomination fight is beginning to look like the whole ballgame, that is all the more reason to support Ron Paul for president, who is vociferously against this bill, and as far as we know the only top-tier Republican candidate against it. Please, support Paul for the nomination.

The Lieutenant Governor has only one official duty and that is to preside over the State Senate, therefore Mark will study the Robert's Rules of Order. If elected, in unofficial duties, Mark will concentrate on emergency management in a state that is susceptible to earthquakes, and one having the Hanford nuclear waste debacle on its hands, and one nuclear power plant. We must learn from the Japan crisis earlier this year, and begin to phase out nuclear energy altogether and transform to solar, wind, geothermal and other non-nuclear and non-fossil fuel energy systems. Where to put the nuclear waste that has already been made will be a major headache for society even as we begin to phase out nuclear energy, but one we'll have to deal with. If elected, I will also be trying to phase out genetically modified food in Washington state by mandating labeling. People, generally, won't buy GMO food if it is labeled, which is why the shady Monsanto Corporation fights proposals for labeling so vigorously. Please, send an e-mail to to get a petition page (and anywhere from 2 - 10 signatures) that will get Mark on the ballot. Thanks.

If possible, please, consider contributing to campaign: click on the title link above and make selections of how you want to donate, or send check or money order to Mark Greene for Lieutenant Governor Comm., P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Also, Mark is depending on supporters to spread the word about the campaign to get around the media bias regarding non-establishment campaigns. Thank you! Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2011 and to call out names. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
