Stafne Challenges whether DelBene is a good Congressional Representative

Stafne challenges whether DelBene is a good representative when she won’t support Bernie The democratic party has put its Congressional representatives in an untenable, but familiar position by anointing them “super-delegates” but then requiring them to support Hillary regardless of the fact that Bernie is clearly the better candidate. Obviously, the democratic party has long since forgotten that under the United States Comstitution the role of a “representative” is to represent the people, not the democratic party. The dictionary defines “representative” to mean: ” having people who are chosen in elections to act or speak for or in support of the people who voted for them.” My opponent for Congress in District 1, incumbent Suzane DelBene said on her 2014 campaign web page that she wants to lead people. Specifically she writes: We need a leader who understands the power of innovation and who has the experience and determination to get things done in Washington, D.C. We need a leader who values creative and lasting solutions over empty partisanship. We need someone committed to the Democratic principles of honesty, integrity, equality of opportunity, and fair play. We need someone who will never lose sight of our shared commitment to the common good, but who also knows how to reach out across political divides to bring together diverse and competing interests to create progress. Given her steadfast refusal to support Bernie notwithstanding that he is the presidential candidate her constituents prefer one must wonder if she is content with the job … Continue Reading

Why I support creating the new state of Jefferson.

  WHY I SUPPORT THE NEW STATE OF JEFFERSON.  This map shows those counties in Northern California which have expressed a desire  to create a new State.      Mainstream media has been trying to foist the notion that those persons who want to create a new State out of parts of California and Oregon are gun toting rednecks who don’t have an intelligent bone in their body. Don’t be fooled. This nose in the air disdain for us normal people is the same type of crap the media originally used to write off Bernie and the Donald before we showed the media it doesn’t matter to us. Republicans and democrats scoff at the notion that California should be divided into two because they don’t want any disruption of their monopoly on power. But that monopoly must end. And we need new governmental entities which will support those constitutional principles the two party system has sacrificed over and over again for their own good and greed. I support the formation of the State of Jefferson because our federal government is not working for the people, i.e. us, in the ways our founders intended. Many have forgotten that our founders created a federal system of government so that we, the people, would be better protected from that type of abuse of power which is now rampant in the empire. The idea was that multiple republican governments inside one nation would protect the people. The goal was that each government would endeavor to protect their … Continue Reading

Media Coverage of May Day Protests illustrates Bias

Media Coverage of May Day Protests illustrates Bias I don’t watch much television. But last night while attempting to watch the news I got stuck watching Channel 7’s coverage of Seattle’s May Day protests. It was obvious that their comments were scripted by those who support the empire as it is. They kept calling the protesters “anarchists”. That’s just flat out misleading. An “anarchist” is  a noun defined as: 1. a person who advocates or believes in anarchy or anarchism. 2. a person who seeks to overturn by violence all constituted forms and institutions of society and government, with no purpose of establishing any other system of order in the place of that destroyed. 3. a person who promotes disorder or excites revolt against any established rule, law, or custom. To protest a corrupt government that evicts millions of vulnerable people to die in the streets, incarcerates innocent people who have not committed a crime solely for purposes of keeping private prisons full pursuant to the terms of government contracts, and perpetuation of a pharmaceutical system developed to keep people sick does not mean you are an anarchist. It more likely means these people want a better government; not that they are against all government. Most of us so-called “anarchists” want governments that are more local in nature and provide a meaningful link between those who are elected to represent us. We do not want the Republican and Democratic parties filtering our access to our elected representatives. Ironically, the media has become an … Continue Reading
