Our Votes Validate the Election Sham – BOYCOTT THEM

Republicans and democrats, far from being opponents, are accomplices in the mismanagement of New Jersey. The two dominant parties control the political process in a manner that our vote, far from being cast in a fair and free election, is used by the political establishment to stake a claim of legitimacy while any real opposition is muffled.

Yes, we get to choose freely but our choices are ham-and-cheese or cheese-and-ham.

That is why, with a heavy heart, I urge you all to cast a protest vote tomorrow, either by not voting at all or voting for a write-in “someone else.”

This will be the first year that I will not vote since I became a citizen in 1992.

I believe our electoral process is rigged and I also believe that at this moment, a no-vote is the most appropriate form of protesting and demanding political reforms

Class warfare: Who pays the fair share of taxes? My answer

Class warfare: Who pays fair share of taxes? – Oct. 14, 2011.

Both sides have valid points but their partisan loyalties override the national interest. That is why there is no agreement.

Yes, I agree with Bachmann that “even the poorest should pay at least $1”, that everyone should a make a bit of an investment in the common good.

At the same time I agree that the richer should also see higher taxes (Obama) to get the nation on a sounder fiscal footing.

I am not entirely certain what the final structure of a reformed New Jersey tax code will be if I am elected governor and all the reforms I propose go through. I have outlined 10 and 20% rates in my platform. That could change for a number of reasons, the most important of which are how much we reduce the enormous political bureaucracy, input from others, legislative demands,  and what economic situation New Jersey will be in in 2014. But the two principles enumerated above: Universality of taxation (Bachmann) and a more proportional table (Obama) will be in the tax plan I present to the legislature.

One other factor that will play in New Jersey is that not all the rich will be taxed equally. If they invest in New Jersey, they will have much lower taxes than those who chose to invest outside our state.

Campaign organization

I do not accept campaign contributions. That places me at a disadvantage as a candidate. The two established parties not only have standing organizations, partly funded by taxpayers’ money and partly by donations; they also have a fundraising capability unmatched in history. That entrenched bureaucracy will make an extraordinary effort to continue  exploiting each and everyone of us for as long as we live. To dislodge them will require effort and coordination.

I cannot do this alone. I need  your help.

If you believe in my program and consider its implementation necessary to save New Jersey, join with me. Phase 1  is you talking to your family and friends about this campaign to retake New Jersey and to ask them to talk to their friends and relatives and so on. Show them my website but you should also become aware of the issues: New Jersey is home. We must protect it together. Not only for us but for our children.

We can not save New Jersey without knowing the issues. Getting to know the links between parts: I.E. Why strengthening civil service laws will save you in taxes. Why raising the minimum wage is important. Why having different tax rates for different dividends.

Phase 2 is organizing. That step must begin in as soon as possible. You and your family and friends must elect a local leader. The leaders must contact me via e-mail first and I will link you together. Once that is done we should all meet and discuss plans, tactics and strategy, ask and answer questions, and above all get to know one another. We can arrange the meetings by regions to minimize your travel. In order to simplify subsequent meetings, we may select region coordinators under whom several leaders will function.

Phase 3 will be the petition. This begins in early 2013. We must gather 800 signatures of registered voters. I will help with that too, like another foot soldier. It would be very helpful if one attorney can volunteer some time to review all the documents. The worst scenario is if either party tries to mount a challenge to my petition. I know I meet all the residence and citizenship requirements but that may not stop them. Both parties are full of dirty tricks.

I will also need a lieutenant governor and he/she will be one of you.

After my Lt. and I are certified as candidates and are placed on the ballot, we must return to phase 1 and mobilize the voters, the people.

This sub-page will appear as a post at least once every week until October 2013. All depends on you.

Long live New Jersey.

U.S. CEOs’ pay up 23% in one year

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/03/business/03pay.html?nl=todaysheadlines&emc=tha25

My point of contention is not that they are making so much more but rather that wages for the immense majority of Americans have increased very little or nothing at all. Also, although the unemployment figure is officially around 9%, I suspect that the true figure is much larger than that and it could be twice as high.

This wide unbalance in our society is not good.

N.J. Democrats, republicans will throw a few bones at taxpayers in 2013

http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2011/06/homeowners_shuld_not_expect_pr.html

What the governor truly means is that the two parties will throw a few bones at New Jersey taxpayers in 2012 and 2013, just prior to the elections, but the property taxes will continue to increase ad infinitum. Keep in mind that that the appetite of the huge political class is insatiable.

The true relief for the majority of New Jersey residents lies in the abolition of property taxes and other reforms which I have outlined – a program that both parties make an effort to ignore in the hope that it will go away.

There is very little chance that our economy will rebound unless we carry out those reforms
