2018 Elections

Postby lundbaek » Sun Oct 01, 2017 3:45 am

It is not too soon to start looking for good candidates for the 2018 elections. I'm already getting notices from candidates. Here in Arizona there is effort to oust John McCain from the US Senate and to replace a few other socialist legislators. What's cooking in the political arena in Utah ?

Will John McCain even be alive by November of 2018? I mean let’s face it the reason he was able to vote as he did in the senate is because when your a “dead man walking” no political pressure can be applied to you.

John McCain is not the only legislator I'd like for us to be shod of. I'm toying with the idea of running for the US "House" again, although I'm waiting to see if there will be a better constitutionalist candidate.

About Utah, I don't know, I just got here. And I still have a lot of other things to tend to before I get involved.

I hope that the votes are put behind a winning candidate, rather than a "perfect" or "ideal" candidate. Because the first job is to ... win the election.

Not feel good that one cast their vote to feel good.

It may seem too early to be concerned about next year's elections, but voters need to be awakened to the importance of next year's elections, and need to start getting informed about the danger the nation and the individual states, and even the individual communities are in at this time. Here is Arizona Senator Flake has just announced his intent to "retire" from the senate, and Senator McCain has health issues that may open up his seat for grabs also. Both of these senators have been supportive of illegal immigration and amnesty, and are otherwise true RINOs. My congressional representative will vacate her seat in the "House" as she runs for the US Senate.

So what's happening in the political arena in Utah ? I would expect a lot more members of this forum to be interested in this topic and would have chimed in by now.

What good does running or voting for a Constitutionist candidate do? A solid 1% vote. What does that do?

If you received this campaign notice from a candidate for the U.S. Congress, how might you be influenced by it ?

If elected, I will uphold and abide by the principles of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States as it was originally meant to be understood , and the Bill of Rights. It will be my goal to help limit the federal government to its delegated, enumerated, Constitutional functions.

Originalist Interpretation
I interpret the Founding Documents according to the meaning originally intended by the Founding Fathers.

States’ Powers
Everything not specifically delegated by the Constitution to the federal government, nor prohibited by the Constitution to the states, is reserved to the states or to the people.

Education
Since the Constitution grants the Federal Government no authority over Education, the 10th Amendment applies. This includes funding.

Gun Rights
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

Foreign Policy, Defense, & Terrorism
American government must be committed to the protection of the borders, trade, and common defense of Americans, with no entanglement in foreign alliances. Any and all wars must be declared by Congress.

Veterans
I will resist the attempt by any government agency to nullify or reduce earned benefits to veterans and their survivors, including but not limited to, compensation, pensions, education, and health care.

Immigration
I stand firmly against any proposals for a “Pathway to Citizenship/Comprehensive Immigration Reform/Amnesty”. I will insist that the U.S. President enforce all immigration laws and support efforts of the U.S. Border Patrol to stop any and all border jumpers.

Treaties & Trade Deals
I believe that any so-called free trade deals and/or treaties that usurp American Sovereignty and/or the Constitution are unconstitutional and the U.S.A. should withdraw from them immediately.

United Nations, Agenda 21, & Global Organizations
I vehemently oppose Agenda 21 and feel we should part ways with the UN and any other global agency that attempts to subvert American Sovereignty.

Religious Freedom
All Americans have equal right to worship according to their beliefs. Government is to be kept out of the religious realm.

Healthcare & Social Security
I believe in the privatization of Healthcare and Social Security, with Social Security being phased out.

Judiciary
I reject the notion that the Supreme Court’s decisions are binding as law beyond those parties to whom the case pertained. Activist Judges should be impeached, as permissible by the Constitution.

Drugs
The federal government’s only responsibility in preventing drug abuse is to control our borders. Drugs are a state issue.

Life
Life for all human beings: from conception to natural death.

Personal Liberty
The Federal Government must be restricted to its enumerated powers as such that it does not impede the Liberty of the People whom it serves.

Property Rights
Each individual possesses the right to own and steward personal property without government burden.

Family
Family is the Bedrock of a healthy Society. It is imperative that government maintains a favorable position to the divinely instituted nuclear family, not one that leads to its destruction.

Personal Responsibility
Americanist ideals are rooted in self-sustenance. Government social and cultural policies have undermined the work ethic, even as the government’s economic and regulatory policies have undermined the ability of our citizens to obtain work.

Sound Money & Constitutional Banking
We must abolish the Federal Reserve and Return to the stability of gold and silver based money. This is essential to stop the devaluation of U.S. currency


In the United States today we have been beset for over 100 years with a carefully and methodically executed conspiracy intent on destroying the constitutional government the American Founding Fathers gave us and making a shambles of the society and government established by the U.S. Constitution. The goal of the conspirators is to saddle the United States with a centralized socialist government and make our nation subservient to a single, world government, a.k.a. the New World Order. If America is to break free of this conspiracy, we must learn the principles of the Constitution in the tradition of the Founding Fathers, and espouse, uphold, and abide by them.

Probably the best person for the job (Congress, President, or any local official) is the one who doesn't want the office.
However, that's rarely ever the case. It's always some bloated self righteous ego that goes after it, musters the money and rallies support.
One of the beauties of Donald Trump was that he wasn't a politician and to that extent he didn't want the job. But he saw an opportunity where he was needed. He didn't need to be President. That bloated self righteous, money grubbing, power hungry monster he ran against needed it to feed the pathetic ego. That was another beauty of the election. That monster (I can't stand to say the name) had it's villainy thwarted; was denied the opportunity to gloat and lord the power over us 'deplorables'.

What's the politicians first job?

To get elected.

I have 2 acquaintances, both LDS, who ran, one for POTUS and the other for Congress, because they felt prompted by the Spirit to do so. The candidate for Congress was elected. And another LDS is considering running for Congress next year, again, because of what he feels "may be true promptings of the Spirit". None of the 3 want to be in the FedGov. All 3 are really concerned about where this nation is headed.
