Other facts

The goals of the American people are simple: Return this country to a Constitutionally based limited federal government. One thing that I would do is abolish the IRS and income tax on a federal level (repeal the 16th Amendment), and go back to the states funding the federal government as we did before income tax. The next thing that needs to be done is we need a full audit of the Federal Reserve. This private institution, who currently controls our money supply, has destroyed our monetary system over the last 100 years by creating money out of nothing. This has led to things like bigger government, out-of-control spending, endless wars, and eternal poverty as the debt gets dumped on the people. We need to know what these people are doing and who they have been giving money to. Congress needs to go back to "coining money and regulating the value of," as stated in the Constitution, and return to a commodity-based monetary system.

Another important thing that needs to be done (and really should be at the top of the list) is to end all of these wars and bring the troops home. The wars that are being fought now are not only unconstitutional (war was never declared), but illegal, as the countries we occupy are not a threat to our national security. By ending the wars, we can use our resources to focus on a true national defense and a non-intervention foreign policy as our founding fathers had spoken about. We would also be saving trillions of of dollars by not being the world's police force. While we're on the subject, all foreign aid must end as well. There's no reason why we extort money from our people and give to leaders of another country.

We also need to restore our civil liberties and natural rights. This can be done in repealing several horrific pieces of legislation. The biggest one that has to be repealed is the Patriot Act. This will end warrantless searches by the federal government that include searching our home, monitoring our phone conversations, phone records, bank statements, credit card charges, library books, and so on.

Others include repealing NDAA and indefinite detention, stopping the TSA and end the groping and molestation that is happening at our airports, ending the federal War on Drugs and repealing the current CISPA bill that continues to violate our 1st and 4th Amendment rights. Cutting domestic spending has to happen as well, which I plan to phase out all departments not related to the Constitution. This includes, but not limited to: the Departments of Education, Energy, Commerce, Homeland Security, Agriculture, Transportation and others which are too many to name on this list. I would allow the states to take on these functions if they wish to do so. The only spending that would be allowed is the spending authorized by the Constitution.

There are two final things that need to be addressed: our monetary system, and holding politicians accountable. With our monetary system, not only does Congress have an obligation to "coin money and regulate the value of," but it must also make sure that our monetary system is not manipulated or destroyed. This can be done by eliminating fractional-reserve banking. Banks lend out money by using depositors' money, not their own. This deceptive practice has caused widespread economic collapses and bankruptcies of the people at the benefit of the bankers. With holding politicians accountable, they must not only be removed from office, they must also be investigated for criminal charges. They took an oath to uphold the Constitution, and by violating that oath, they have committed perjury and obstruction of justice at the minimum. These people are not above the law. We need to bring people who violate the Constitution to justice.

That's a pretty snappy blue shirt...Wasn't this guy in a boy band back in the day? His ideas are good, he doesn't sound like a whiny Dem who likes to give tax dollars to those who think it is their right to collect a check while watching daytime TV.

I agree with 90% of what he says.......

It's odd that we've gotten to the point where someone that actually wants to follow the constitution is an outlier. A real shame. Fortunately there seems to be more people waking up to this fact and "unplugging the matrix cable".

Oh wow! Jon Runyan is the man! Thanks for serving us Congressman Runyan! We look forward to seeing you soon! You are everywhere to meet with us discuss the issues in the 3rd district when not in DC. Let's rally behind Runyan for Congress!

He sure phoned it in today, pops...weak as a kitten. Couldn't explain away 10% approval rating, no budget, or Birdsall... Rob, nice job, today.

Pops, I agree Runyan looks like a winner! Let's rally and get Jon Runyan re-elected. Hope to see you in Moorestown before the election.

He was outclassed on Tuesday - with two 'handlers' in tow. Said to raise the retirement age to '75, um, 72'...then was asked why his written responses to the questions given in advance disagreed with that (question posed by one of the editorial staff of the APP). When I mentioned that some households had to make a choice, and shopped competitively for their health insurance, his response was "People don't really shop competitively for health insurance." In my house, we shop competitively for milk. Audio coming on this, also. He's a nice enough guy, and he believes in conservative values, but he votes lock-step, after promising to be an independent voice. He did not come off well at all, so, unless T-croft guy is the fellow who sat behind JR with his head in his hands after the retirement comment, he knows not from where he speaks. Shelley fared even worse...they both spouted the exact same lines that NJPoliticker blasted them for - because, I guess, if you tell them often enough, you'll believe them yourself.

The real message Tuesday was that there are three things that will fix the grid-lock in Congress, and remove the special interests from the decision making process. 1.) Recognition of Ratification of Article the First - which restores the true power of Congress to "We, the People". 2.) Ballot Position - equitable and fair placement for those who have gained access to the ballot by the proscribed means. No party "owns" privilege in placement, although the State's Attorney essentially said, no, wait, exactly said that they do. 3.) The Change the Rules pledge - where all incoming and returning Congresspersons and Senators agree that they may not serve on committee in a voting capacity where a conflict of interest due to campaign dollars received is evident...this does NOT deny them what they were actually elected to do - serve in the "committee of the whole", and/or propose legislation...and it defeats the influence protected under the Citizens United v Federal Board of Elections decision, because, under the Separation of Powers, the House and Senate "Rules" set at the beginning of each session are not in any way subject to review or modification by either the Judicial or Executive Branches - that's right, even the SCOTUS has no say on the "Rules", once the doors close.

All three? Proposed and promoted by YOUR "Democratic-Republican" candidates. "Stand for what's right, or settle for what's left" - Frederick John LaVergne, "Democratic-Republican" for Congress, NJ Third District.

Runyan and Adler were terrible in the Asbury Park Press editorial meeting. Rob Witterschein howver brought up very critical issues: Witterschein brought up ending out imperialistic foreign poiicy and bringin our military home. He also called for ending the DHS police state, stopping TSA molestation at the airports and ending the wasteful War On Drugs. He also brought up ending the Federal Reserve and restoring honest money, getting rid of the IRS and its unconstitutional and illegal collection tactics, and the only one to state Social Security is bankrupt. There was also mention of the Patriot Act and NDAA, of which was never brought up by the media panel. The whole panel was a fraud and a charade. Here is the audio on it. Some of it you may have to put in headphones, as it was recorded by a phone (the media does not want this to be out there) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6reofzkePS4
