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, …

Blog News LVIII

There is a new post on our blog Statesperson about pragmatism versus idealism and how that relates to the preposterous preposed nullification of the Constitution that the Levin-McCain bill is.

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 gene…

Corporate PACs in Brad Owen's Pocket

... or is that the other way around.

Corporate chieftains and the Establishment are lining up behind the incumbent Lieutenant Governor, Brad Owen, as Public Disclosure Commission reports are currently showing. Of course, they enjoy the tax loopholes that their underlings in Washington's official political circles provide for them, as the budget crisis here squeezes the poor and the needy, and big businesses use storefront offices, or maybe even mere post office boxes, in other states to avoid taxes. The State of California and some other states, if not most, don't allow that, but the cozy status quo in the Evergreen State is just fine for the political/corporate establishment, here, and Mr. Owen shall continue to be the beneficiary of their P.A.C. money largess. Not to mention that they have probably heard of Owen's main opponent's (Mark Greene's) environmental reforms and general doctrines that really represent the people. Owen will have the money, Mark should hav…

Young Adult Political Training Program

Update (May 14, 2012): The country of Austria is at least one country in the world that allows the vote for citizens as young as 16 years of age. Hopefully, the State of Washington will follow and lead the way for America to get high school students more interested in civics and politics.

The Party of Commons is starting a political training program for young adults and older teenagers in Washington in which classes will instruct Commoneers about civics and governmental matters, our party platform, how to run a political campaign, including lessons on Public Disclosure Commission regulations, election laws, and how to get on the ballot. Parental permission will be required for aspiring Commoneers that are 16 or 17 years old.  Like the country of Austria in central Europe, the Party of Commons believes that 16 and 17 year olds should have the right to vote, and we are working towards that goal.  This program is basically getting our future members ready to take up official positions in…
