Vote for Ron Paul

The Party of Commons is endorsing Ron Paul for the Republican nomination, and if there is not an acceptable strong independent or third party candidate in the general election, we'll probably endorse Paul for the general election as well if he gets the nomination.  Please, if you are able to vote in the Republican primaries, vote for Ron Paul.  After this disgraceful 112th Congress nullified one or two of the Bill of Rights on the very day that celebrates those first 10 amendments to the Constitution, we need a strong principled person that actually upholds his oath of office as president.  Unbelievably, the Bill of Rights nullification this week received an overwhelming majority of the vote of Congress, which just goes to show that's there's not a dime's worth of difference between the two major parties.  There are exceptions within those parties however, and Ron Paul is one of them, which is why the Republican Establishment doesn't like him.  Ron Paul's son, Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, also did not support the nullification within the military funding bill, so congratulations to him, too, for being against it. 

This is a very dangerous bill, and it should be receiving more attention than it has thus far.  See our blog, Statesperson, for more about our statements and opinions regarding this bill.  Barack Obama, the so-called constitutional scholar, supports the nullification, and in fact successfully intimidated the Senate into taking out a provision that protected the constitutional due process rights of American citizens.  This president is one of the biggest frauds, going by his '08 campaign, that ever managed to win the presidency.  We don't care if he was good on a thousand other things, which he's not that either, but if he trys to nullify the Bill of Rights, we wouldn't support him even if his main opponent was absolutely deplorable, because there will probably be at least one acceptable 3rd party or independent candidate on the ballot, weak or strong.  The paradoxical dilemma regarding Ron Paul's candidacy is that he's excellent on foreign policy and civil liberties, but not good on general domestic policies.  However, the threat to our democracy is so great that we would rather take the chance that Paul's domestic agenda could be stopped in Congress than to support the deterioating status quo.  So without an acceptable strong non-major party alternative, we hope that Ron Paul will be taking the presidential oath of office in 2013.

Update:  The Obama rule made a big show about possibly vetoing this bill (and later indicated it would be signed), but that was more likely about politics than anything else.  As indicated above, Obama pressured the Senate to take out the provision protecting the due process rights of American citizens, as was related by Senator Carl Levin in so many words; so Obama's veto threat had everything to do with protecting unconstitutional presidential powers and perhaps, like in '08, trying to bamboozle his base into thinking that he is a progressive.

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.
