The Ithaca Journal gives us the run down on the candidates to represent the 24th congressional district. Nothing very inspiring in this race.
They both believe the Federal government needs to rule over the abortion issue (using the commerce clause of the Constitution). I guess that is reasonable since the birth delivery of a child is reported to the Department of Commerce.
They agree on carbon credit trading, a scam to make environmentalist think government is saving the planet while the politicians fill the pockets of their donors.
They both either have no clue or wish to ignore the true problem associated with a fiat monetary system. Either way, you can not fix a problem by tinkering with a symptom.
Arcuri swore an oath to the Constitution to guarantee free health to all. I guess that is in the general welfare clause. It looks like Hanna just wants to nationalize regulation of health care; I get the feeling we don’t need States at all.
On energy, they once again quibble about bits and pieces and ignore the relationship of gas price to fiat money ratio. Inflation is not a natural event. It is a product of a monopoly banking system. It is a product that the average American can live nicely without.
Iraq; there was no way the Dems could stop the war (unless they cut funding). I’m not buying that stuff.
Campaign finance is the golden goose to be protected at any cost. Somehow I think it might be related to the fiat money system.
So here is my bottom line. I’m going to vote for Richard Hanna. Like Thomas Paine, I think we can do better without a political class. Mike Arcuri and 433 of his associates should be returned to the working class. And in two years we can get rid of Richard Hanna too.
