Boston Tea Party endorses Libertarian Barry Hess for Governor: “Restoring Freedom for Arizonans”

Emailed to by Darryl Perry, Boston Tea Party National Committee Chair. Barry Hess is seeking the Libertarian Party nomination for Governor of Arizona and has run for office several times as a Libertarian.

By a vote of 5-1 (with 1 not voting) the Boston Tea Party National
Committee endorsed Libertarian Barry Hess for Governor of Arizona.
Hess, the “favorite son” VP nominee for Arizona by the BTP in 2008, is
running a no compromise campaign based on the philosophy that,
“Freedom’s the Answer,…. What’s the Question?”

He has a mission: “Beyond running a campaign free of the taint of
“Public Funding”, our objective is to offer Arizonans a real, clear
and distinct choice as to who will be the next Governor.

Never has it been so clear that the Democrat Party ‘is’ the Republican
Party (and vice versa), and never have they/it inflicted so much pain
on the very people they promised to help…

Never has it been so clear that the problems Arizonans face are not
because a Republican/Democrat ‘won’ or ‘lost’, like the Olde Media
outlets would have you believe, but because government continues to
grow with either.

There’s a simple rule of thumb to remember: The bigger the government, the smaller the individual.”

And he has a vision “of an Arizona where its government is honest and
open and protects the freedoms and liberties of all of its Citizens;
where the opportunity for entrepreneurs goes unhindered; where
opportunity and prosperity are boundless; where a person’s privacy and property are respected; where every Citizen is safe in the public
thoroughfare, and where the Constitution is upheld to safeguard all of
these things.”

“On the matter of the issues,” Hess writes, “you will see a common
theme; that the solutions are based on what the brilliant minds of
entrepreneurs can do with us, rather than what the government can do for us… Government, by nature, is inefficient. Government solutions
are cumbersome, not very adaptable, and loaded with bureaucratic
rules, regulations and red tape that make implementation slow and
expensive. Additionally, without free market competition, there is
little pressure to improve the product or service and/or reduce it’s
cost. Choice is the gift that liberty gives to us.”

Will you make the right choice?

    A lot of people think that Congress isn’t covered by Social Security. This simply isn’t true. You can check

    The Boston Tear Party is making no noise about career politicians. I would like to see some party talk in this country of ours about talk about term limits for A Senator and Congress. We no longer have a government of the people by the people for the people. What we have is elite People who have become career politicians governing the people and excepting them selves from the laws they pass for the rest of us to follow and obey.

    How about three # term for senators and 6 terms for representatives and no more special pensions and medical plans. If the 545 elites in Washington were under Social Security and Medicare both programs would get straighten out damn quick. Our Founding Fathers are more than likely throwing up on themselves watching our bureaucratic status quo in action.

    I’m wondering what the deal is with all the candidates in this race. There are four of them, and at least one has taken public financing (that one pretty clearly isn’t a real Libertarian).

    Fun fact: the last time there were multiple Libertarian candidates for a statewide office in AZ was (if I remember correctly) in 1998. That year, LP primary turnout was only 9% of registered LP members. That led to some strange outcomes. For example, in the gubernatorial primary, a county supervisor who had raised $100,000 lost to a hairdresser/madam with a felony record for abusing horses. In the AG race, the real LP candidate asked his friend, a Republican from Nevada, to run against him in the primary in order to gin up interest in the race — and lost to the Nevada Republican by more than two to one.

    Recently Public Service Gas & Electric Co NJ started putting up a solar panel on each of their telephone poles. You know, the ones that every once in a while somebody gets killed when they hit it. Each solar panel is a finger wave to the LOSERS who are too stupid to put up their own silar panels. So even though I can’t afford it, I decided to buy myself a solar panel for my birthday. About $300 for a 50 watt Duracell from Lowe’s where I have a credit card which is nearly maxed out but they haven’t closed it like Citi or Chase closed my ccs.
    So here is a finger wave right back at you filthy bastards.
    & when the revolution comes, we are going to nationalize all those solar panels. So enjoy your profit while you can you filthy bastards.
    & have fun polluting the Gulf while you can because we are going to shut down all those off shore oil wells too.
    Filthy bastards.

    Today is my birthday.
    Happy Birthday to ME!
    Just another losing day for you LOSERS!

    What is needed is for the BTP National Committee to endorse PLAS.

    What’s Barry Hess’s opinion of SB1070? I hope he takes the libertarian position on that issue.

    Gov Jan Brewer is one of the modern day US politicians most richly deserving of a good old fashioned tar and feathering, along with Sheriff Joe Arpaio and DA Andrew Thomas in the Phoenix area.

    If the BTP can help get that meme out there, if nothing else, in however small a way, it’s all for the good.

    I am sure Gov. Jan Brewer is worried over this turn of events. The BTP has maybe 10 voters in Arizona.
