Mr. Dillard, you say, “we already have a representative”.
Well, first off, it’s Darrell (not Mr. Dillard). For I want to work for you, and not the other way around. Secondly, where is this so-called representative, you supposedly have? Oh, yeah, he is frivolously abating your hard-earned dollar. Probably trying to thwart your liberties, as I stand here flapping my jaws. Thirdly, when is the last time this representative approached you, asked you about your concerns? What has his representation done for you as a citizen?
Now, don’t get me wrong. I appreciate the time put forth by Rep. Robertson. My question is, “has he represented, you, the individual? How about your neighbor? Any family members? Come on, just let me see one hand. Surely, someone here has something good to say about his duties, being fulfilled since being elected. How long has it been, 30+ years? Wow, you all must have seen alot of good works come from the fulfillment of his duties, towards the 70th District. Now, let’s see those hands.
I am sure, Rep. Robertson is a good person. Is he a good Democrat? I’m sure he is. Along with his peers, in both houses, have raised taxes, assumed a tacit of citizen’s liberties, attacked the very heart of the Indiana Constitution. These government bodies have belittled the Constitution to that of a scrap of paper. I wonder if any of them have ever really read this grand document? I hope they have, it is the very base of their duties, as our representative government. How many of you have read this document? I have, but need to read it again, and again. Everytime I read it I feel that I have learned something new.
Listen to this:
”TO THE END, that justice be established, public order maintained, and liberty perpetuated; WE, the People of the State of Indiana, grateful to ALMIGHTY GOD for the free exercise of the right to choose our own form of government, do ordain this Constitution.”
Does anyone know where this can be found? That’s right, the Indiana Constitution’s Preamble. Read the words. Feel these words. Now after reading this, has your General Assembly performed their duties and responsibilities?
What about this:
”WE DECLARE, That all people are created equal; that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that all power is inherent in the people; and that all free governments are, and of right ought to be, founded on their authority, and instituted for their peace, safety, and well-being. For the advancement of these ends, the people have, at all times, an indefeasible right to alter and reform their government.”
Strong words, aren’t they? Do you recognize this from anywhere? You should, it is Article 1 (Section 1) of the Bill of Rights (Indiana).
Do you completely understand the meaning of this statement? Sometimes, I wonder if the writers of such documents phrase these words so that we, the average citizen, won’t question their actions. Think about it. If we are ignorant of the facts, how can we question the usurped authority, of said parties? For instance, the term indefeasible. Can anyone tell me the meaning? Not capable of being annulled or voided or undone. Ineresting, isn’t it?
When you read these statements, you get the sense of authority over said representative government. These words are very important, in that it grants us, the citizen, the overall say in what is to be taken care of. Do you think that they (General Assembly) think this, NO! They seem to think that we are here for their leisure.
By these statements, we can see several things that might intimidate most governments. Let’s see:
1) The mention of God (ALMIGHTY GOD, CREATOR)
2) Inherent rights of the people
3) Government being founded on the people’s authority
4) The people’s right to choose their own form of government
5) The unvoided right to alter and reform their (the people) government
Amazing, the foresight of the framer’s of our Constitution. How they knew that the very liberties and rights granted by the Document that it was important to have the explicit authority of the people.
Me, I believe in this decree. What about you? Enough with the gab.
As a candidate for the Indiana State Assembly, I must explain my platform. Bare with me and I will forebear you, the punishment of my speech. My general beliefs and platform are pretty much in line. The nice thing about politics, is that you don’t have to agree 100%.
Let me explain my platform:
As a candidate, I seek the protection of personal liberties; in the individual lies the personal representative over their own lives and these truths are inherent rights to the benefit of self, and not that of others.
Individual rights are motivations for freedom, and is the personal value of such that sets into motion the iedeals of freedom itself. In this lies the belief in peace and prosperity for all.
In defense of these rights freedom brings. For this reason dreams are what make the foundation for the world we live in.
With this comes the basic principles:
To challenge the cult of the omnipotent state and defend the rights of the individual.
To hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose.
Governments throughout history have regularly operated on the opposite principle, that the State has the right to dispose of the lives of individuals and the fruits of their labor. Even within the United States, all political parties other than our own grant to government the right to regulate the lives of individuals and seize the fruits of their labor without their consent.
Thus, on the contrary, deny the right of any government to do these things, and hold that where governments exist, they must not violate the rights of any individual: namely, (1) the right to life — accordingly we support the prohibition of the initiation of physical force against others; (2) the right to liberty of speech and action — accordingly we oppose all attempts by government to abridge the freedom of speech and press, as well as government censorship in any form; and (3) the right to property — accordingly we oppose all government interference with private property, such as confiscation, nationalization, and eminent domain, and support the prohibition of robbery, trespass, fraud, and misrepresentation.
Governments must not violate individual rights. The opposition of any and all interference by said government. People should not be forced to sacrifice their lives and property for the benefit of others. They should be left free by government to deal with one another as free traders; and the resultant economic system, the only one compatible with the protection of individual rights, is the free market.
My beliefs in the basic rights of the people are as follows:
1) Personal liberty
2) Expression and Communication
3) Personal privacy
4) Personal relationships
5) Abortion (the conscience of the individual, not government perview)
6) Crime and Justice (restitution, common-law right of juries)
7) Self-defense (legitimate use of force in defense of rights: life, liberty, and acquired wealth)
8) Economic Liberty ( free trade; only task of government is to set forth guidelines and protect rights of property)
9) Property and Contract (entitled as that of human rights)
10)Environment (keep government out of natural resouces-sighting their track record)
11)Energy and Resources (oppose gov’t control and regulation over energy pricing, allocation ,and production of such)
12)Gov’t finance and spending
13)Money and Financial Markets (free-banking market;end to compulsory gov’t units of account)
14)Monopolies and Corporations (oppose gov’t subsidies business, labor,and special interest groups)
17)Healthcare (reviving free-market healthcare system)
18)Retirement and Income Security
19)Securing Liberty (the protection of individual rights is the only purpose of government)
21)Internal security and Individual Rights (gov’t intelligence actions should never over-ride that of the rights of the people)
22)International Affairs (no foriegn intervention; rights of resistance of tyranny)
23)Free Trade and Migration
24)Rights and discrimination
26)Self-determination ( when destruction to individual liberty, the inherent right of such to abolish said government)
Well, I am not going to bore you any longer. I would like to thank you for your time and cooperation in listening to my ramblings. It is time to take a stand and reform the current government back to its inherent founding. With family values and traditional founding we can find ourselves. So, with your vote and support, we can take back our rightful place, as the people’s inherent authority. Remember that I would work for you. My door will always be open to you for Q&A, and any other matters set forth in administration of such duties.
