  • ’Welcome to all you amateur politicians. This lecture is designed to answer the question as to why amateurs should be involved in political action.
  • It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that things are drastically wrong in the American of today.
  • This of course is a mind-boggolling number that none of us can really understand For instance, it takes 10,000 years of continuous counting as fast as you can to count a trillion. 24 trillion will take over 2 1/2 thousand years of such counting.
  • So what’s wrong with counterfeiting. If it’s good for the economy why don’t we all counterfeit a few million dollars of our own?
  • Using the $14 trillion dollars of money in circulation in 2009, it’s instructive to calculate the various resulting inflation rates various levels of the national deficit.
  • The Tax and Cap program represents the politics of engineered shortages. By Caping the amount of energy that can legally be produced and selling it to the highest bidder you can be sure that only the wealthy will have warm homes in the winter and coo homes in the summer. Al Gore’s famous mansion is an excellent example of this concept. AndHenry Lamb’s book on the history of the United Nations makes excellent bed time reading if you enjoy horror stories at night.
  • Do we have a trumpet sounder in the audience?
  • For those of you who live in Sandy you’ll be interested in the message David Perry (State Vice Chairman of the Constitution Party) has for Sandy residents.
  • What’s a latitud-a-denanrian? A Latitud-a-denariun is an ambivalent voter. He combs his hair nice. I like the way he talks, or even, I guess I’ll just flip a coin.
  • This means you can choose between four different political paradigms.
  • Maps of course are important to our election officials since they operate not really on the philosophy of what does it take to run a minimum government, but rather, how much tax can we get from the various households on this map.

  • 22.
    • A Short Course in Politics 101
  • 23. We all know that: Each November voters struggle to vote for the Best of the persons whose names appear on the ballot.
  • 24. :
    • Question :
      • How do candidate’s names get to appear on the November ballot?
          • By magic?
          • By some other process?
  • 25.
    • Answer:
      • By some other process.
      • and
      • This process begins at the grass roots level.
  • 26.
    • Understanding the details of this grass roots process will make you into a political expert---
    “ Voila” “ We Win!!! I Want You
  • 27. Elections are held every year
    • Every even numbered year
    • for County and State Officials
    • Every odd numbered year for
    • City Officers
  • 28.
    • For County and State offices the election season begins in March---
    • some 9-months before the November election .
  • 29.
    • Hint: Professional politicians know a political secret
    • Shhh
    • (March 2010 is only a few months away.)
  • 30.
    • Now you know it too--
    • March 2010 is only a few months away .
  • 31.
    • In early March anyone can file as a candidate for any office including that of President by only doing two things :
      • Registering in one of the political parties that have ballot access,
      • And paying the filing fee.
  • 32.
    • Filing Fees
      • President $ 500
      • U.S. Senate $1,239
      • U. S. Congress $ 413
      • Governor $ 536
      • Attorney General $ 509.20
      • Treasurer $ 509.20
      • Mayor (Salt Lake County) $ 597.36
      • State Senator $ 32.40
      • State Representative $ 16.20
  • 33.
    • So you’ve filed to run for office.
    • Now What?
    • It’s back to the grass roots level.
  • 34. What do we mean by “Grass Roots”?
    • “ Grass Roots” refers to your neighbors.
      • .
    The ones you work with and live around.
  • 35.
    • On a night selected by Utah State
    • “ Like-minded” neighbors meet together in what’s called a
    • “ Neighborhood Caucus ”
  • 36.
    • At this meeting:
    • one or more of those attending are selected to represent their neighborhood in an larger assembly of “Like-minded” neighbors.
  • 37. How do you find “ like-minded” neighbors?
    • Political parties have developed over the years to help you identify neighbors who have the same political “ paradigm “ that you have .
  • 38.
    • Political paradigm?
    • What in the world is that?
  • 39. Political paradigm: Your personal thought pattern about politics-----------
    • Are you a Conservative?
    • Are you a Liberal?
    • Are you a “Moderate”?
    • Are you a Latitud-a-denarian?
  • 40. A Latitud-a-denarian is an ambivalent voter!
    • He chooses his candidate by:
      • The way he combs his hair.
      • By the sincerity of his speeches.
      • Or maybe just by flipping a coin.
  • 41.
    • Many voters try to express their political paradigm by joining
    • (or creating) a political party.
  • 42. So How many political parties are there in Utah? Take a guess????
  • 43.
    • There currently are a total of Twenty (20)
    • But
  • 44.
    • Only FOUR have Ballot Access
    Republican Party Candidate Republican Party Candidate Democratic Party Candidate Constitution Party Candidate Libertarian Party Candidate
  • 45.
    • This means that when you vote you will be choosing between only four different political paradigms
  • 46. Political Terminology
    • Precinct: An official neighborhood grouping of about 1000 voters.
    • Election District: A grouping of precincts from which individuals will be elected to represent their District in a political office.
  • 47. Utah Election Districts--

      • to elect five State officials every 4 years.
      • and two US Senators for six year terms.

    • The 12 Salt Lake State Senate Districts have
    • 70 precincts (each)
    • The 30 Salt Lake State Representative Districts have 30 precincts (each)
  • 51. Precinct Maps

    • Chairman: 30 in SLC
    • Area Chairman : 4 to 6 in SLC
    • County Chairman: 1 for SLC
    • State Chairman: 1 for Utah
    • National Chairman: 1 for the US
  • 54. Road to the Ballot
    • Candidates file for office.
    • Precinct Caucuses elect Convention delegates.
    • In the Convention delegates vote for candidates.
    • Primary elections are held for the major parties.
    • Winner’s name placed on November ballot
  • 55. Where Do Candidates Come From?
    • Personal Ambition and Talent
      • ---- Example: Barrack Obama
    • Patriotic Dedication and Talent
      • --- Example: Ron Paul
    • Dedication but Limited Talent
      • ---“You may not be much but
      • you‘re all the Lord has!”
  • 56. Winning Candidates Need
    • Personal Dedication
    • Campaign Volunteers
    • Money
  • 57. What’s so important about
    • Because the unaffiliated voter is the 500 pound gorilla in each election .
    Money?
  • 58.
    • It’s a fact—no one knows the prevailing political paradigm in Utah!
    • Let’s look at the voter registration!!!
  • 59. Registered Voters Who Vote in Salt Lake County
    • Unaffiliated Voters 55%
    • Republicans 31%
    • Democrats 12%
    • 3 rd Party 2%
  • 60. Question for the Unaffiliated Voter: If good people stay out of political parties, who does it leave the political parties to? That’s a Good Question!
  • 61. Other Questions?
    • In general, do the unaffiliated voters know what’s really going on?
    • If we are going to make a political difference in Utah do we have to do a better job of educating the unaffiliated voters?
  • 62.
    • So who’s going to do that???
  • 63.
    • You !
    • and
    • The “Like Minded Neighbors” you’ve recruited to attend your March 2010 Caucus
    I Want You
  • 64. So Take the Ball and Run With It!
  • 65. But: Don’t be a wrong way Corrigan !
  • 66. Wrong Way Considerations
    • Let’s Reform one of the major parties.
  • 67.
    • Problem:
    • They’re really not
    • reformable!!!
  • 68. Reformability is only a mirage! There are no “CONSERVATIVE ROOTS” for Republicans to return to? When in total power, Republican Administrations sell the Constitution down the river of “ Compassionate Socialism.” since
  • 69. Other Wrong Way Considerations
    • I need to vote for
    • the “ Lesser of Two Evils ”
  • 70.
      • Problem:
      • Isn’t the Lesser of Two Evils still Evil?
  • 71. Also
    • Since The Constitution Party is only
    • a 3 rd Party it can’t win .
  • 72.
    • When you vote for candidates who belong to political parties with a demonstrated track record for compassionate socialism
    • Do You Really Win ????
  • 73. Political Fact: Despite rhetoric and prestige--
    • You need a party with candidates who give more than lip service to fighting the unpopular war against
    • Socialism
  • 74. Winning
    • Principles
    If you vote for PRINCIPLES you’ll always win your own responsibility race! “ Politics ”
  • 75. Are you a Patriot willing to Sacrifice your comfort zone for the Cause of Freedom?
    • If so
    • Then Do Something!!!
  • 76. It’s True
    • The Constitution Party is the only Politcal Party dedicated to Actually
    • Restoring the Constitution!!!
    • In the Tradition of the Founding Fathers
  • 77. Action Plan
    • Join us in the Battle to Restore the Constitution
    • And volunteer to be
    • Chairman of your Precinct .
  • 78.
    • And help bring us back to the Limited Government of
    • Checks and Balances
  • 79.
    • As a Constitution Party Precinct Chairmen
    • You can help cause these miracles to occur!!
  • 80. Remember that changing things require us to change the people who make the laws.
  • 81.
    • And in order to change the people who make the laws, your candidate must be on the ballot.
  • 82.
    • And it’s the Precinct Chairmen who initiate the mechanism for candidates to get on the ballot!
  • 83. As Precinct Chairmen We Will Help You Educate Your Precinct With:
      • Preplanned Seminars on the Constitution.
      • A Lending Library of Constituional Books.
      • Promoting educational nights for your Precinct.

    • Participating in Fundraising Projects.
  • 85. An important consideration ----
    • Precinct Chairmen should work only within the time frame they can spare in the cause of freedom.
    • Remembering that---
    • A little bit of work that’s actually done is very much better than a lot of work not done !
  • 86. -----And Last of All-----
  • 87. Help us become worthy of Divine Intervention in the cause of freedom.
