The Boston Tea Party National Committee by a vote of 3-0 (with 3 abstaining & 1 not voting) has endorsed Dr. Cisse Spragins for US Senate in Missouri. She is the only candidate in this race with the courage to say, “Reducing the size, scope and power of the federal government is the core solution to every issue we face as a nation. We must work within our present reality, but be guided by an unflinching commitment to the ideal of liberty. As a realistic means to start down this road, I subscribe to the agenda of the DownsizeDC organization.”
There are six Downsize DC Agenda bills:
* * The Read the Bills Act
* * The One Subject at a Time Act
* * The Write the Laws Act
* * The Free Competition in Currency Act
* * The Enumerated Powers Act
* * The Fiscal Responsiblity Act
Dr. Spragins is campaigning on the slogan: “A Principled Stand for
Individual Liberty, Free Markets and Peace.”
Dr. Spragins will work to end the war on drugs… “an expensive,
unconstitutional failure. Prohibition creates a violent sub-culture
where profits are high enough to kill for. Our courts and prisons are
crowded with millions of non-violent offenders who could otherwise be
leading productive lives, or getting real help if they do in fact have
an addiction problem.” Spragins adds, “In a broader sense, we should
not look to government to determine the standards of our moral
behavior. Such decisions should be left to individuals and their
families, churches and chosen communities.”
Dr. Spragins writes, “The three “economic sins” of government are
taxation, regulation, and inflation. All three must be reduced, to
create economic prosperity. Their ultimate elimination will result in
the greatest prosperity for the greatest number of people…We need to remove the disadvantages of onerous and intrusive regulations and
punitive taxation if we want more jobs in this country.” And “The Fed
is authorized by Congress to print money out of thin air. This is how
the Fed “lowers interest rates”. Each new dollar created is an
invisible tax because it decreases the value of the dollars you have.
I will fight to bring transparency to our monetary system and restore
the strength of our currency. My ultimate goal is to end the Federal
Spragins supports a vast reduction in military presence around the
world. “The United States has no business policing the world and we
cannot afford it. I support the orderly closing of our bases in more
than 150 countries around the world, and the removal of our troops. I
will work to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and to begin the
orderly and immediate withdrawal of our troops from those countries.
It is not necessary to occupy other countries to defend our nation,
nor is it our right or responsibility to allegedly “spread freedom at
the point of a gun”. In war, even the victor loses. We lose lives,
resources and goodwill. We cannot promote the blessings of liberty and
free markets at home, while executing a global military central plan
She says, “There is no limit to what the human spirit can accomplish.
We the People will achieve liberty when we commit ourselves to it.”

The Boston Tea Party was founded in 2006 with a one sentence platform, “The Boston Tea Party supports reducing the size, scope and power of government at all levels and on all issues, and opposes increasing the size, scope and power of government at any level, for any purpose.” In October 2008, the party’s National Convention adopted the four point program of the Campaign for Liberty. Their program calls for an end to overseas occupation, a restoration of privacy and other liberties, no increase in the national debt, and a thorough review of the Federal Reserve. During the 2010 convention the Party adopted a new program to End the Wars of Aggression, End the Fed, End the War on Drugs, End the Abuses of Liberty, End the Immigration Fiasco.
Cisse Spragins is the state chair of the Libertarian Party of Missouri, on the ballot as a Libertarian Party candidate.
