2012 Election Cycle: We of
the Hard Right need to be there. We need to
take point this cycle - we've seen what happens when
we permitted the Tea Party crowd to run things.
The real Tea Party folks are our allies, and those
who claim the Tea Party Brand as they chase the
power and perks of Washington...not so much.
We need to be clear on one matter, Patriots.
Politics is a vital aspect of this
Polygonal Battlespace. We can not afford
to neglect politics, nor can we simply wait to
permit others to select candidates, then choose the
least offensive. We must identify, recruit and
cultivate candidates who share III values and then
do the work to get them into office. It will
take hard work.
Understanding the fact that we can not afford to
ignore politics, we must not devote so much
energy to politics that we neglect prepping and
other aspects of prudent action. The
economy may fail before we get to 2012, which means
we need to pivot to Plan B. But, if we
make it to the 2012 elections and we have squandered
the political opportunity, we'll never get it back.
I mentioned this over the weekend, and it bears
repeating: Even if you think politics doesn't matter
at this point, I urge you to consider that if the
economy tanks or some other form of collapse occurs, Continuity of Government
protocols will go into effect. Those
politicians who are currently in office will end up
in bunkers, taking decisions in our names.
Who do you want in those bunkers?
Target: I am going to devote my
efforts to electing
III Approved candidates into the
US House. As I have said before, I think that
is the most important ground to take and hold in
election cycle. Please do not forget, for
even a moment, that this election cycle is a battle
for the existence of Liberty in America.
State Legislatures are just as important, though far
more numerous. If we managed to encourage a
strong coalition of States who are willing to wield
economic leverage, to stand up and assert States
Rights, Fed power could be blunted. Look at
the States and what they contribute to the economy.
Any coalition including Alaska, Texas, Pennsylvania,
Ohio, Georgia and Florida as a core group would not
only wield brutal economic force, but also
But there are only so many hours in a day, and a
limited number of days in the next 23 months.
So, I am going to thrust for the US House.
There is no reason why we can not set up our House
efforts and create a template that will work well
for State races. I hope many of you will take
the responsibility to work on the race for your US
Representative, as well as your State level races.
Platform: Candidates run on a
Platform, which is typically a simple list of issues
upon which they intend to stand and promote to earn
votes. We of the III Community must build a
Platform that satisfies most of us, hopefully 80% of
us will agree on about 80% of the Platform.
That will be a strong Platform.
Once we have decided to move forward with an agreed
Platform, we begin finding potential candidates and
we use our Platform as a litmus test.
An effective Platform will appeal to the III
Community and it must be crafted in such a way to
appeal - or at least to not offend - the voters of
the political middle. Social and Cultural
issues can not be part of the Platform if we want it
to succeed. But, if we recruit strong
Constitutionalist candidates, then our social issues
will take care of themselves. You know where
most III candidates stand on GGG issues, we don't
need to make it an argument during a campaign.
Get our Team elected, they know what we want.
The Economy is the singular issue of import to
Americans during the 2012 cycle. If we stay
on-topic with smart positions regarding the Economy,
we can win a significant number of House races.
The moment our candidates begin debating abortion or
God in schools, we lose the middle and the race.
I drafted a Platform about two 2 weeks ago just to
see if there was interest. Concerned American
picked it up and improved on my effort, and reading
the comments at his site made it clear that there
are those of us who see value to the premise.
So, below I have melded the first 2 versions into
Platform format, and labeled it Version 2.0. I
think we should spread it across the III Community
and refine it, and see where we end up.
The language of the Platform is in black.
Notes are offered parenthetically in red.
So, I offer the 2012 III Political Platform
v2.0 for your consideration:
2012 III Political Platform v2.0
A) Constitutional Authority:
We believe that the United States
Constitution and Bill of Rights, as amended, say
what they mean and mean what they say.
The Commerce Clause and the General Welfare Clause
are not license for Congress to violate a single
enumerated power described in Article I, Section 8 or
elsewhere. Our Candidates shall cast no vote in
Congress on any legislation without obvious and
explicitly stated Constitutional Authority.
B) Second Amendment:
...shall not be infringed... says what it
means and means what it says. All Federal statutes
and regulations which, when read in accordance to
the plain meaning of their contents, infringe
directly or indirectly on any Constitutional Right
shall be immediately repealed.
Fourth Amendment: The plain language of the Fourth
Amendment shall be restored to original
intent. Such violations including TSA Scanners
and Pat-Downs, Stop & Frisk procedures will end
immediately. Searches of a Citizen, his papers
or effects shall only be permissible upon signed
warrant from a Judge. The PATRIOT Act shall be
D) States Rights:
Our Candidates shall
fully support the
intent of the
Framers, and to this
end shall support
the repeal of the
E) Scope of Federal Government: Our Candidates will
submit legislation to de-fund and disband every
extra-Constitutional Department and Agency within
the Federal Government within one year, including
but not limited to the Department of Education, the
Department of Energy, the Department of Commerce,
the Department of Homeland Security, the Department
of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of
Health and Human Service, the Department of Labor,
the Department of Agriculture, the Department of
Transportation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,
Firearms and Explosives, the Drug Enforcement
Administration, and the Transportation Security
Administration. All other Federal Departments
and Agencies shall submit a written justification
for continued operations to the appropriate House
and Senate Committees within six months of the
effective date of the Legislation.
F) By separate
Legislation our Candidates shall move to end every extra-Constitutional
policy and program and law currently in effect.
G) Impeachment: Our Candidates
shall support and actively seek Impeachment proceedings for Treason
against politicians, bureaucrats, and judges who are
believed to have violated their oath of office.
H) Entitlement Programs:
The proper place for Entitlement programs such as
Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and
sponsored healthcare is in the respective States,
and are prohibited to the Federal Government.
Candidates will immediately submit legislation to
abolish all Federal transfer payment programs and
every American shall receive a refund of all money
paid into these programs, including interest
calculated at fair market rates had the Citizen been
permitted to save this money in private interest
I) Military Deployment: Our
Candidates shall submit legislation that all US
Military bases around the world on foreign soil
shall be closed within one year, and all American
troops brought home.
(Any threat that may have once been
posed to America from Iraq or Afghanistan has now
been eliminated, and all US troops should return to
the safety of the US.)
J) Defense: The Navy has the
primary responsibility for American Force Projection
around the world, and the Navy and Air Force shall
jointly and immediately begin to establish American
supremacy in space from Earth's atmosphere to the
far side of the moon.
(Space is the High Ground. Until the Nature of
Man is fundamentally altered, there will be
a militarily dominant Tribe on the planet - I
contend that Tribe must be our own.)
K) Guantanamo Bay: It is
inappropriate for the United States of America to
hold prisoners without judicial resolution.
Those currently held by the American Government for
Terrorism related activity shall be tried by a
Military tribunal, and executed or released to their
home country upon final judgment of that proceeding.
L) Economy: America should
immediately set course to engage the markets of the
world on a genuine Free Trade footing. With
the goal of eliminating all Federal Government
interference in Global markets within one year, a
Presidential (or Congressional, if the President
fails to act) Committee shall be established to
deliver to the President and Congress within six
months of formation a report on how to achieve that
M) The Fed: Our Candidates shall
submit legislation for a complete and public audit
of all operations and holdings of the Federal
Reserve System, with joint hearings to effect the
abolition of the Federal Reserve System to be
commenced within ninety days of said audit.
N) Energy: Energy is a strategic
aspect of our economic and national security.
Dependence upon foreign sources of oil are
unacceptable, and most alternative energy sources
are insufficient to achieve national security goals
in a timely manner. Federal restrictions on
the construction of Nuclear Power facilities must be
Our Candidates will submit legislation to compel the
US Navy, within one year, to commence construction
on 100 Nuclear generation facilities located on
Military facilities within the continental United
States. All facilities and the commencement of
commercial power generation shall be completed
within four years of the effective date of
legislation. Transfer of Generation Facilities
from the Navy to appropriate private companies shall
occur within two years of coming online.
Consider this Platform. Spread it to III
websites to start the discussion. Consider the
realities that obtain in the world of Politics, and
getting a Candidate elected. If we have
overlooked an essential item, or if we come to
consensus that an item should be dropped for
practical reasons, speak up.
I think this political Platform will appeal widely
on the Right and Hard Right beyond the III
Community, earning wide support. But the
reality remains: The job is simply not getting done
to our satisfaction. The folks running various
elements of the Tea Party are not chasing the same
outcomes as are we. Too many of them are
willing to compromise.
I'm not a compromise kind of guy.
Those of us who self-identify as a member of the III
Community pride ourselves on taking point, on
action, rather than simply spouting rhetoric that
goes nowhere. We are not afraid of taking
fire, and we will fight on every necessary front to
rid our republic of the Collectivist filth who are
enslaving us and our posterity.
So, let us step up now and lead the Hard Right with
our own brand of no-compromise values and lead our
Countrymen back to a Constitutional republic.
III Percent Patriots are not rabid, blood-thirsty
radicals who must be restrained by more pragmatic
elements of the Right from starting a violent war.
We are simply Patriots who are finished passively
backing up. We are Patriots who have decided
to take action...and if you are an enemy of the
Liberty of the republic, stand aside, shut your
mouth, or face the consequences of trying to enslave
a group of men and women who have no intention of
accepting the chains.
Remember: The concept of the III Percent is a matter
of historical fact and state of mind. It is
not a club or private group. No Patriot need
submit an application to any Leader seeking
acceptance, and no entity may strip you of the III
If you are an American who shares the ideals of that
historic III Percent of Americans who took arms
against the King and took to the field when we
needed serious men and women who were willing to
fight, kill and die for the ideal of Liberty, you
are a III Percent Patriot.
Now is the time to be prepared for a Ruckus...and to
fight with all of our passion on the political
front, so that our children may be spared the
ugliness of violence.
comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate
as the only option on the table. Dare we not offend the
sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our
midst who are ruining and destroying our republic? Are we
to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for
the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin,
poverty, tyranny, and death?!
we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and
women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls
that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our
sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of
the United States of America? We ask you, is not our
republic worth the risk of being castigated? Is the soul of
our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our
lives, and our Sacred Honor? Have we lost so much of our
heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will
stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who
work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we
will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny
as the world has never before witnessed?
Excerpt: You are a
fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would
use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many
of their edicts. In drafting healthcare reform, they use
the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and
prison if you refuse to buy health insurance!
How is that not only a
degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are
undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to
Russians, Germans, and the Chinese. It starts with
Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism,
Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.
We have a
culture of people whose first response to a physical threat
is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer. We have a nation of
people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the
restaurant – and win! We have a nation of educators
who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or
for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and
We have a nation of
people so removed from the food chain that many would starve
to death if the local supermarket closed. We have a nation
of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most
of the people in the world every day, and as a result we
have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common
Excerpt: The Bill
of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that
are not bestowed by government, but rights that are innately
ours as human beings. These rights may not be taken from
us. These rights were written in plain language so that no
clever interpretation and manipulation of the intent was
possible. These rights may not be restricted, narrowed, or
infringed. Any attempt to do so is a violation of the
relationship between Man and Creator.
restriction, infringement, and clever interpretation imposed
upon us in the years since our Constitution was ratified is
simply a violation of our natural rights.
We hold that every
violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by those in
Government is an act of Treason, as these violations are
unjust, undermining the fundamental foundations of our
republic, breaking the pact between citizen and government,
and desecrating the relationship between Man and Creator.
Any man or woman who enforces these unconstitutional laws on
behalf of government is a treasonous soul and an enemy of
Liberty and humanity.

Current political leaders are only the face of the problem
confronting America today. The underlying cancer
eating the American Soul is Liberalism. But for your
Liberal neighbors, Liberal politicians would never be
elected to office.

the polls. Liberalism must be defeated in our society
and Liberals must be marginalized, or this disease will kill
Every patriotic business owner should immediately fire every
Liberal on staff and hire an employee who respects the

owner suffer an employee who will simply vote for

entry into your social circle. These stupid people are
responsible for the insanity that affects everything from
your property taxes to the curriculum taught to your

they are the reason your bread costs too much? Why
would any parent permit them access to their children, when
they are responsible for ruining your child's future?

government employees at the Local, State, and Federal levels
who support federal Healthcare Reform, the Assault Weapons
Ban, TARP, Stimulus I, Free Trade Agreements, PATRIOT Act,
the new “Jobs” bill, or a host of other such Federal

United States of America.
Secondly, businesses, multi-national corporations and
special interest groups that support Liberal politicians
and/or Liberal programs, Cap & Trade, Global Warming

United States of America.
Finally, we will demonstrate that those private Citizens who
support or vote for any of these politicians—once the nature

equally guilty of Treason by knowingly lending material aid
and support to a Traitor.
