NYC Libertarian Mayoral Candidate Carl Person Said Obama Has Adopted Two of His Proposed Economic Reforms

Carl Person was a candidate for the Libertarian Party’s 2012 presidential nomination. He is an attorney and graduate of Harvard Law School who resides on Long Island. He is running for the mayor of New York City in the November 2013 election as an LP candidate.

OBAMA ADOPTS 2 ECONOMIC REFORMS PROPOSED BY NYC MAYORAL CANDIDATE CARL PERSON

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact:           Carl Person, (FORMER) 2012 Candidate for Libertarian

                  Presidential Nomination, 212-307-4444

 

New York, New York, February 122, 2013 –  

Carl Person, candidate for NYC Mayor during the November 2013 elections, announced today that “President Obama has twice adopted a unique economic issue of mine.”

Person went on to explain, “during my campaign to obtain the Libertarian Party nominated as its candidate for President, Obama pushed through his JOBS Act in a 2-week period, signing the Act on April 6, 2012, which adopted one of my 3 campaign issues – that the 80-year ban on advertising for capital by small business.”

This ban resulted from the Securities Act of 1933 which made it illegal to either offer or to sell securities in a business unless the offering was registered.  As a result of the JOBS Act, it is now legal for a small business person to advertise or publicize his/her need for capital.

Person went on to say, “In my website election-issues-us.com, in my 12/21/12 revision, I stated:

Wanted – Town and Village Wanting to Increase Income
and Standard of Living For Its Residents and Small
Businesses – At No Cost To It – 12/21/12 Update

 

* * * Here are the 4 major changes I can implement for your town:

 

FIRST. I will create a 4th Year High School curriculum and related evening/weekend adult education program to enable high school graduates and their parents to obtain jobs paying $1,000 to $2,500 per week being the assistant to the owner of a small business or professional firm – for residents only This will be an option to train for immediate, high-paying employment rather than to go to college (which leaves too many with no skills, no jobs and a lifetime of debt) – the 1-year computer-Internet training program should not be open to non-residents because of the added costs and dilution of value to the community – this training program will give the town a competitive advantage over all other towns in the U.S., and these other towns should set up their own programs and make them better and more competitive, ideally. By having the training open only to residents, the town will have greater prosperity, land values will rise to higher levels, and other parts of the country will have to do the same thing to compete, which is what the country needs to be able to escape from the present economic imprisonment of the U.S. economy. Keep it exclusive to the town. For example, you wouldn’t want to share the following program with towns throughout the U.S.: “Bringing Manufacturing and Jobs Back into Your Area”, a program designed to make the selected town a Little Silicon Valley and create new manufacturing and agricultural jobs. This 4th year of high school should be free to students and eliminate the need to attend a high-cost college or university such as NYU, for example, which charges about $70/hour or 35 times more than the $2/hour per student cost of this training program). [substantially revised on 12/21/12 from prior 4-year $2/hour college equivalency program]

 

During his State of the Union address on February 12, 2013, Obama stated that he was going to do something very similar, changing the curriculum in high school to prepare students for working in the high-tech economy.  Obama said:

 

Tonight, I’m announcing a new challenge to redesign America’s high schools so they better equip graduates for the demands of a high-tech economy. We’ll reward schools that develop new partnerships with colleges and employers, and create classes that focus on science, technology, engineering, and math – the skills today’s employers are looking for to fill jobs right now and in the future.

 

President Obama does miss his mark, however, because he is not directing the high-tech education toward small business employment, where there are 27,500,000 jobs waiting for  high school graduates trained in broad-based information technology.

 

The Libertarian Party in New York City is getting set to nominate ex-madam Kristin Davis (whose campaign manager is Roger Stone, who engineered the nomination of Gary Johnson as the National Libertarian Party’s Presidential nominee in 2012) as their NYC Mayoral candidate, which I think is a big mistake in the making. Wikipedia states that Davis

 

formerly known as the Manhattan Madam, is a former madam famous for having run a high-end prostitution ring in New York City that offered its services to several high-profile clients.

 

Kristin Davis is a nice person but is not offering any significant ideas for creating jobs or business opportunities for New Yorkers, and her candidacy could hurt the Party.

 

The Libertarian Party in New York City should be nominating a candidate who has worthwhile ideas for creating jobs and other economic reforms, to give these ideas publicity and a greater possibility of being implemented.  Also, the Libertarian Party in New York City would get more votes and more members, if that is really what the leaders are seeking.

    Why does he think Kristin Davis is bad for LP image? At least she’s honest. Politicians are prostitutes in a different way. They will sell their souls to get elected/re-elected. Look at Sen. Menendez of New Jersey. How about Sen. Vitter in Louisiana? If the LOVE = GOV Spitzer didn’t go to her she would be out of business fast. Plus, he kept his socks on (quick escape). I am curious though no women politicians are going to prostitutes. I guess they haven’t caught up to the “benefits” of being a politician.

  2. johnO

    Another question will the LOVE=GOV Spitzer(D) endorse Christine Quinn(D) or Kristin Davis(LP)?Client #9 tell the truth….Does sexual intercourse trump ideology?

  3. johnO

    LOVE=GOV Spitzer(D) should also donate money to Kristin Davis (LP) campaign. He’s already shown he had no problem giving her money before why change now? DON’T donate the socks!

    Depends on what you consider Long Island. Brooklyn and Queens are part of Long Island as well as NYC, but are not what New Yorkers typically mean when they say Long Island, which usually just refers to Nassau and Suffolk counties.

  5. Robert Capozzi

    Yes, if Person lives in say Queens, that IS on LI, but no one that I know of would refer to him living on LI. They’d say he lives in Queens, NY.

    We should get clarification, but this could be another example of oddness coming from this quarter….

  6. Mark Axinn

    There is no residency requirement to run for office in New York.

    If he wins the application, Carl will have to move back into the City, but that’s not very likely.

    Didn’t she come out against that Mosque – which was actually a Muslim Community Center, not a Mosque – being built a few blocks away from Ground Zero? I thought that was a pretty ridiculous, and anti-libertarian stance to take on that issue.

  8. Eric Sundwall

    Kristin Davis was opposed to the Park51 project in Manhattan during the 2010 cycle as a candidate for Governor.

    Whatever media bauble she may attract as a candidate should not overshadow the above fact.

    I would give consideration to opposing both her and Person for the nomination if there were any interest in the NYC LP.

    Apparently the strong intellectual component of New York libertarianism is now left to the upstate hicks.

    If victorious, I would gladly take residence with the homeless near the Bowery section in Manhattan. I know Axinn would occasionally throw me a back alley meal . . .

  9. Robert Capozzi

    MA, thanks for clarifying. Seems like a weird place to campaign from: If I win, I’ll move to Gracie Mansion. Has a Jimmy McMillan feel to it, as the rent is NOT too damn high.

  10. Eric Sundwall

    Owing to a an irksome delay in providing services to the free market, I can respond to the Gracie Mansion issue.

    If elected, I will introduce legislation to the city council to de-comission Gracie Mansion as a public good. If a title covenant to preserve it as a monument to abuse and corruption prevents sale in the first three years, a full free market proviso will insure proper and final sale by my final year of office.

    For the record, I first met Jimmy McMillan on a Sunday morning in the Bowery to film the third party debate for Governor in 2006. Not so charming at the time . . .

    Yes, but I don’t think that’s what he meant. He’s taken some stances many people would not consider libertarian either. I’m guessing he means her former career as a madam/pimp. I have no problem at all with her on those grounds, although I don’t like her views about Cordoba House.

    If victorious, I would gladly take residence with the homeless near the Bowery section in Manhattan. I know Axinn would occasionally throw me a back alley meal . .

    Since you plan to decommission Gracie Mansion, if you want to show solidarity with the Occupy movement, I know some good grates to sleep on on the Lower East Side. The key is to get them early, it can be pretty competitive.

  12. Robert Capozzi

    ES, are you running, too? Or are you advising the LP’s mayoral candidate to take that position, which has some appeal to me?

    I’m not surprised that behind-the-scenes Jimmy wasn’t as electric as his on-stage persona.

  13. Krzysztof Lesiak Post author

    Carl Person… that was the guy who hired Tom Stevens, who publicly supported bestiality to be his campaign manager, right? Well than… I guess the NY LP should avoid both him and Davis in that case.

  14. Krzysztof Lesiak Post author

    Well, at least he fired him (but that was AFTER initially defending Stevens’s comments):
    https://independentpoliticalreport.com/2011/12/lp-pres-carl-person-fires-campaign-manager-apologizes-for-bestiality-comments/

    Wait is Stevens still the PA LP chairman? Does he still publicly support that moronic idiocy and quite frankly SICKENING and DISGUSTING stuff in that capacity? Well then…good luck winning elections my Pennsylvania friends. Lol and isn’t Stevens the founder of the Objectivist party, and he ran as their candidate AGAINST Gary Johnson and racked up 4,000 votes? Why is he still in a position of state leadership then?

  15. Jill Pyeatt

    Yes, it’s the same Tom Stevens who is currently the chair of the PA LP. He’s currently in hiding after his assassination attempt (see latest PA thread).

  16. Q2Q

    Carl Person is a good guy. Plus, he did win 30000 votes in his race for AG as a Libertarian. He’s worked hard to build and promote the LP and it’s values. Then, when you look at Davis, you have to ask yourself what she’s done for the party? The answer, nothing. So the choice is pretty clear, Carl is the better candidate.

  17. Thomas L. Knapp

    To be fair to Stevens, he didn’t precisely “support bestiality” himself.

    What he did was, for unknown reasons, feature Person’s position that bestiality is a victimless crime.

    There’s a difference.

  18. Jeremy C. Young

    @22, “feature” is a bit mild. I would say he convinced the rather clueless Person that being pro-bestiality was a Libertarian position, then mocked his own candidate for supporting a position he himself had encouraged the candidate to support, all in some bizarre attempt to torpedo the political career of his friend and close associate. Which seems to have worked, by the way.

  19. johnO

    To Andy
    I didn’t know about the Mosque. However, I bet she is opposed to the idea of forced burqa on her. Sharia Law and all that.

    “The Libertarian Party in New York City is getting set to nominate ex-madam Kristin Davis (whose campaign manager is Roger Stone, who engineered the nomination of Gary Johnson as the National Libertarian Party’s Presidential nominee in 2012) as their NYC Mayoral candidate, …..”

    If you believe Roger Stone engineered the nomination of GJ, I have Pacific Ocean beach property in Mississippi to sale you cheap ! And why is Stone her CM ? Last I heard Stone has moved to FL and enjoys it.

    Good for Person. Hope he runs a strong L campaign for such a high profile position !
    If not him, whoever runs could get some good media for the LP possibly helping the LPNY Gov candidate get the much needed 50,000+ to hold statewide ballot access for ’16 and ’18.

    As for the unspeakable, let’s be truthful how many of you haven’t watched a horse on female or a dog and woman vid ? Be honest now. Perversion is but a few keyboard “licks” away…..

    @16 – Paulie,

    I have good camping gear, I wouldn’t suffer much being “homeless” in NYC, other than being victim to NY’s finest stop and frisk.

    @17 – RC

    I would consider at least presenting to the NYC LP as a candidate because of the poor quality KD and CP are as candidates.

    My pitch would be that it is so bad in the “City” and the LP is making such a bad choice, that disgruntled upstater has to come down the river to do it right . . . otherwise no, I wouldn’t share such intentions as serious at IPR.

    I have good camping gear, I wouldn’t suffer much being “homeless” in NYC, other than being victim to NY’s finest stop and frisk.

    They’ve been known to do more than just stop and frisk when it comes to camping gear in the city.

    I would consider at least presenting to the NYC LP as a candidate because of the poor quality KD and CP are as candidates.

    My pitch would be that it is so bad in the “City” and the LP is making such a bad choice, that disgruntled upstater has to come down the river to do it right . . . otherwise no, I wouldn’t share such intentions as serious at IPR.

    Sounds like a good idea. I encourage you to follow through with it.

    From the article

    “The Libertarian Party in New York City should be nominating a candidate who has worthwhile ideas for creating jobs and other economic reforms, to give these ideas publicity and a greater possibility of being implemented. ”

    We believe that the way for politicians to “create jobs” is by getting government out of the way. Despite my disagreement with Kristin Davis regarding Cordoba House, I sense that she gets that. I’m not so sure about Carl Person in that regard.

  24. Mark Axinn

    Guess I should add a comment.

    Kristin Davis is the front-runner to get the nomination for NYC Mayor, but as the nominating convention is not for another six weeks, someone new may come into the picture. If she is the LP nominee, or if she is not and runs as an independent such as she did in 2010 for Governor as the candidate of the the Anti-Prohibition Party (APP), any sentient being knows that Roger Stone will act as an advisor behind the scenes as he did for her in 2010.

    Her closest opposition for NYC Mayor nomination was from Randy Credico, LP and APP candidate for Senate in 2010 against Chuckles Schumer, but Randy now is only going to seek the Democratic nomination and not the LP.

    Carl Person is a very nice man. He has been maligned here and elsewhere because of the atrocious campaign he ran for President when Dr. Stevens was his campaign manager. He ran a very respectful campaign for New York Attorney General in 2010 and obtained more votes than any other Libertarian candidate ever had for that position.

    Jimmy McMillan is a total fraud.

    I am currently baking a cake with a file in it to give to my friend Sundwall when the stop and frisk and let’s take him down to the station and fuck with him a while NYC cops arrest him for exercising his first amendment rights in the big apple. You hicks should stick to ice fishing or whatever it is you do upstate.

    RC @ 14–

    Our current tyrant, Big Gulp Bloomberg, never moved into Gracie Mansion.

    He likes his own house on 79th Street, a block from Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum, a whole lot better.

    It’s actually one of the things I admire him for.

  26. johnO

    Heck he may ban money. Barter with bike lanes. Don’t forget your helmet and body armor. AH, NYC is going to miss the Nanny State………oooh wait. Ban the Nanny’s boobies too.

  27. johnO

    Heck ban smiling. will cause wrinkles. ban the camera! pUt GPS in your head. I’m BIG BROTHER Mayor of NYC.
