Twelve Visions Party Candidate Richard Hesos Will Be on Ballot in Massachusetts Special Senate Election

From an April 14th post on the Twelve Visions Party of Massachusetts Facebook page:

Richard A. Heos has achieved ballot status in the U. S. Senate Special Election on JUNE 25th for the TWELVE VISIONS PARTY….

For the election, Libertarian Daniel Fishman and independent Jack E. Robinson III were running, but have since withdrawn. This means that Hesos will be the only other candidate on the ballot besides Democrat Ed Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez.

In 2012, the Twelve Visions Party ran Jill Ann Reed for U.S. President and Thomas A. Cary for Vice President. The ticket received 2,914 votes, coming in 17th out of 27 candidates on the ballot in at least one state.

  3. paulie paulie March 29, 2018

    I have a vision that says that the Twelve Visions Party will never amount to anything.

    You’re quite a visionary.

  4. Vicente San Martin Jr Vicente San Martin Jr March 28, 2018

    Twelve visions party. Members. Hear me out this party needs. Very. High numbers more then. What mark Hamilton or Steve Fagan has said hundreds will not cut it it is more of like thousands upon thousands the Sunday night call. Will not cut it one other thing I fear that members that are part of this will get FUCKED over. Just like what happen in 2012. Now in 2018. They have a Con artist. Running this party. In that no one should. Trust. Him or this party

  7. Vicente Vicente November 10, 2017

    Twelve Visions Party has a Con Artist running it for right now and back in 2012 they fuck people over and now they are going to do it again what a shame

  8. Thomas Mundell Thomas Mundell October 5, 2017

    Not yet!!! But the day is coming when we will need a party such as this on the ballot!!!

  9. Luke Luke September 21, 2017

    Haven’t heard of it. Are they on the ballot somewhere?

  10. Thomas Mundell Thomas Mundell September 21, 2017

    Depoliticizing America and doing away with government and bureaucrats will allow the medical profession to advance rapidly to find a cure for aging and death. The Twelve Visions Party is about cutting through the illusions to the essence of happiness!!!

  11. paulie paulie February 4, 2016

    So they still exist?

  12. Kerry Kerry February 4, 2016

    I started working at age 14 . By law, I paid federal taxes out of each paycheck up until April 2015. I expect to continue paying taxes again soon since I am in training for another job. The federal gov told me my SS will be cut in half and I now pay $100+ for my medical care. I have been told I could not have necessary surgery to live and they could quit sending me checks. I got the surgery. I am voting for this new party because I researched it extensively. I believe in their plan. I do not believe it is a scam. I know I signed their petition out side a grocery store some years ago without understanding what it was about. I know they were volunteers because I asked. Many people signed as I talked to one before I signed. There were 3 people getting signatures. All volunteers. They were there 3 days. They were at other stores. They had several sheets of signatures at each store. I feel sure 15,000 signatures were not difficult to get across the country. Now Obama wants me to give back the money I was forced to pay in. Isn’t that paying taxes on taxes making my payment’s higher than any rich person pays? Obama wants us to pay in but clean out the bank account for his own pocket. Government help does not help. It keeps us so poor we can’t help ourselves. Food programs are a joke. Outdated cans, cereal, bread and hopefully enough meat for 1 meal a month. I qualify for $6 a month in food stamps. I ask you to please vote for this party. Thanks.

    ROFL – seems legit

  14. Robert Capozzi Robert Capozzi February 19, 2015

    Of course, the Boston Tea Party didn’t either, iirc….

  15. Robert Capozzi Robert Capozzi February 19, 2015

    No mention of the alleged cult of the omnipotent state? 😉

  16. paulie paulie February 19, 2015

    OK, then what is the point of having a separate party?

  17. Dale H. Dale H. February 19, 2015

    Actually, The Libertarian Party & The 12 Visions Party basically share a common interest.

  18. paulie paulie February 19, 2015

    So in what way would the Libertarian Party not work for you then?

  19. Dale H. Dale H. February 19, 2015

    I truly believe that it is time for a change in venue. The Democratic Party & The Republican Party have had their day in the sun. It appears that the 12 Visions Party has indeed found a solution to our current “political issues” and to our current “government issues” as well.

    Frankly, I think using a “voluntary pay” program is better than a “forced pay” program any day!
    I believe that when you pay for a service, it should be because you are satisfied with the service that is provided to you. If you’re not satisfied, then you should not have to pay, right?

    I truly believe that “Depoliticizing America” is a starting point. The “PRIME LAW” & the “PROTECTION-ONLY BUDGET” are key elements in getting our country back on track! I refer
    this statement to a post made back on May 21st, 2014 by Cheryl Jones, and I believe this idea IS the only way of correcting problems within our Government.

    IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE!

    “It sounds like a party where some dude took a bunch of acid and had Twelve Visions.”

    OR… made up by somebody that didn’t get the twelve step program right the first time!

  21. Andy Andy May 21, 2014

    “paulie May 21, 2014 at 10:06 pm
    I would just say third party or new political party. If people ask I would tell them the name and a short summary if they need that. I don’t think I would have had any problem getting sinatures. It is a goofy name though, you are correct.”

    I’d be kind of embarrassed to say the name because it sounds so goofy. Yes, the smart move would be to give a generic but still accurate pitch, and hope that nobody asks what the party is called.

  23. Andy Andy May 21, 2014

    Twelve Visions has got to be one of the goofiest names for a political party of which I’ve ever heard. That’s right up there with the Blue Enigma Party and the Cool Moose Party (which is actually a goofy but still cool name).

    Could you imagine collecting petition signatures for the Twelve Visions Party? “Hey, excuse me, could you sign a petition to put the Twelve Visions Party on the ballot?” It sounds like a party where some dude took a bunch of acid and had Twelve Visions.

  24. paulie paulie May 21, 2014

    I had to close the thread to further comment because (s)he kept having attention whore attacks and bringing it back demanding that the thread and/or her comments be removed, threatening us with lawsuits and what not. After that she did the same on email and we told her to go pound sand on there too.

  25. paulie paulie May 21, 2014

    Royalist Party?

  26. Matt Cholko Matt Cholko May 21, 2014

    Paulie, do you remember a commenter, presumably a female, that pretended to be a “prominent” member of some BS party, then posted under a different name, from the same IP address, claiming to be someone else, “correcting” the comments left by the first name…. or something like that? Maybe 6-12 months ago. If you remember, do you remember what party that was?

  27. paulie paulie May 21, 2014

    Where do you see your major differences with the Libertarians being?

  28. Cheryl Jones Cheryl Jones May 21, 2014

    Hello!!!
    I just came across this on the internet and was intrigued by the conversation!!!
    The Twelve Visions Party is a party built for the purpose of “Depoliticizing America” and then the world!!! The people in the Twelve Visions Party (TVP) are regular people (business -small and large, office, industrial, construction, cooks, chefs, waitresses, you name it) that have formed this political party according to the rules to become a political party! But we are not politicians and do not want to be politicians!!! It is our intention to take politics out of our government. We feel that “The Prime Law” along with the “Protection-Only Budget” is the only thing that will correct the problems within our government!!!

    The Prime Law

    (The Fundamental of Protection)

    Preamble

    *The purpose of human life is to prosper and live happily.

    *The function of government is to provide the conditions that let individuals fulfill that purpose.

    *The Prime Law guarantees those conditions by forbidding the use of initiatory force, fraud, or coercion by any person or group against any individual, property, or contract.

    Article 1

    No person, group of persons, or government shall initiate force, threat of force, or fraud against any individual’s self, property, or contract.

    Article 2

    Force is morally-and-legally justified only for protection from those who violate Article 1.

    Article 3

    No exceptions shall exist for Articles 1 and 2.

    The name “Twelve Visions Party” comes from our Twelve Visions:

    Vision One: Become the person you were meant to be
    Vision Two: Live the life you were meant to live
    Vision Three: Feel extraordinary every day
    Vision Four: Slow down aging permanently
    Vision Five: Land the job of your dreams
    Vision Six: Build the business of your passions
    Vision Seven: Experience the love of your life
    Vision Eight: Have the body you always envied
    Visions Nine: Become a genius of society
    Vision Ten: Have everything you always wanted
    Vision Eleven: Ride a prosperity wave to riches
    Vision Twelve: Enjoy nearly perfect health

    It is our goal to

    eliminate poverty,
    bring back our jobs,
    eliminate excessive regulations,
    give the people back their freedom,
    cut all taxes by more than 50% (with the Protection-Only Budget),
    eliminate politics from our government,
    protect the people,
    and bring back our government as it was intended
    “Of the people, By the people, and For the people”

    The Twelve Visions Party (TVP) is here to lift America back up to the Great Nation It Once Was!!!

  29. paulie paulie November 7, 2013

    KG, how is it better than the LP?

  30. KG KG October 29, 2013

    I also agree with Jill and Paulie…even Bruce. Although, when I vote for the TVP, it won’t be out of spite towards the Republicans and Democrats; it will be because they have the best and smartest plan to fix America and subsequently the WORLD’s problems. It would be wise for everyone to read the TVP National Platform at tvpnc.org. I did and it was genius..I must admit.

  31. johnO johnO June 25, 2013

    Will this party get major party status if it reaches 5%?

  32. Um Um June 25, 2013

    Actually, they sound like they would limit government to less than that if anything.

  33. L Deninger L Deninger June 25, 2013

    Unfortunately, the 12 visions party philosophy fails in the same way our founders failed. That is, they do not fundamentally limit the size of government. Even God only asks for 10%. Therefore, government, local, state and federal combined, should not be allowed to SPEND more than 10% of the gross domestic product of the United States. Our representatives can argue about how to divide up that 10%. The reason I say spend, rather than tax, is because otherwise government will print or borrow money. Even at 10%, government would be spending over a trillion dollars per year, so that should be plenty for any legitimate purpose.

  34. Mark Jones Mark Jones June 12, 2013

    “For some reason, the 12 Visions Party just makes me think of the 36 Chambers.”

    Makes me think of the Twelve Monkeys.

  35. Miro Miro May 17, 2013

    One of Winslow’s signature gatherers mentioned an individual standing outside a supermarket gathering signatures.
    I assumed it was either Laura Garza or Jack E. Robinson, but it makes me wonder if it was actually this fellow.

    That was pretty much the first and only interaction I’ve heard of with the TVP so far.

  36. bruce a smith bruce a smith May 17, 2013

    Thank you Paulie and Jill for your excellent points. Agree whole heartly. If I lived in Mass. I would gladly throw my vote away for Twelve whatever party. I dispise the demoRats and RepubliCONS that much.

  37. paulie paulie May 17, 2013

    years ago a great deal more public money was spent directly on giving people a leg up

    I’ve seen how that money gives people a “leg up.” I grew up in slums. More like kicks people’s legs out from under them.

    and to create social stabilty.

    That’s actually a lot closer to the mark. It creates social stability by preserving the wealth of those deemed “too big to fail” and preventing their upstart competition from rising to challenge them.

    building and maintaining our infrastructure

    At a far higher price and lower quality than the market would, but look on the bright side…at least it pads some people’s pockets at the expense of everyone else.

    protection of civilization

    It does the reverse,

    feeding of starving people.

    Actual charities do that. They are all over the place and were even more prevalent before government got in the way. BTW, feeding starving people without government approval is being made illegal in cities all over the country, and businesses are actually forced by law to throw away perfectly good food. Speaking BTW as someone who has both actually starved (once very closely to death, although you certainly wouldn’t know it by looking at me now) and fed starving people many times.

    a very small percent is used for true altruistic reasons.

    None whatsoever. Taking money from people with the threat of force, distributing most of it to well off bureaucrats and government partnered corporations, and using the crumbs that are left over to keep poor people trapped in poverty is a lot of things, but altruism is not one of them.

  38. paulie paulie May 17, 2013

    Incidentally, they had to collect something like 15,000 raw signatures to get on the ballot. It seems to me to be unlikely that they are big enough to do this with volunteers, so someone must have dropped $30,000 give or take a fair piece into their ballot access effort.

    Yes, that was mentioned in in one of the articles I read about it, I think maybe on BAN. I’m surprised I did not hear about it on the petition grapevine as well.

  39. George Phillies George Phillies May 16, 2013

    12 Visions affects to be quasilibertarian. However, I am here in Massachusetts, and this is the first I have heard of them, even though they appear to espouse orthodox Libertarian stands including an interpretation of nonaggressive behavior.

    Given that the other choices are a Democrat and a Republican, I am inclined not to be hostile to them.

    When you research 12 Visions, so much of their jargon is followed by a Refgistered Trademark symbol. They remind me of Scientology, if Scientology had decided to set up a political party.

  41. Deran Deran May 16, 2013

    30_ years ago a great deal more public money was spent directly on giving people a leg up and to create social stabilty. Since Reagan, really since Carter, the federal budget has been more and more tilted toward the Pentagon. imo.

  42. Jill Pyeatt Jill Pyeatt May 16, 2013

    CT @ “Taxes are necessary for the protection of civilization and the feeding of starving people.”

    It wish that was the case. Our taxdollars now are being used to murder people in other countries, empower legislators to make more and more unecessary laws, and to prosecute and incarcerate the unfortunate souls who are caught breaking them. Certainly some taxes are used for building and maintaining our infrastructure, which is valid in my view, but I’d be willing to bet that a very small percent is used for true altruistic reasons.

  43. Catholic Trotskyist Catholic Trotskyist May 16, 2013

    Taxes are necessary for the protection of civilization and the feeding of starving people. What would the TVP like to spend tax money on?

  44. Stewart Flood Stewart Flood May 16, 2013

    If it’s a cult, what makes it different from the Democratic Party or the Republican Party? They’re both cults, and both are fronts for ponzi schemes to tax us to death.

  45. Dr. Jimmy Rustles Dr. Jimmy Rustles May 16, 2013

    Whoops, #4 should say “Neothink.” It’s basically a cult.

  46. mARS mARS May 16, 2013

    I saw this on the Wikipedia page for the election a few days ago. I’ve been trying to figure out what on Earth they’re supposed to be.

  47. Dr. Jimmy Rustles Dr. Jimmy Rustles May 16, 2013

    It’s not a real ideological party, it’s a front for a Ponzi scheme called Neotech.

  48. Richard Winger Richard Winger May 16, 2013

    The party’s presidential candidate in 2012, Jill Reed, had a web page.

  49. Miro Miro May 16, 2013

    From what I’ve heard, they’re supposedly a libertarianesque party.

  50. Krzysztof Lesiak Krzysztof Lesiak Post author | May 16, 2013

    What the hell is the TVP? I’m guessing they’re really insignificant, since no one has bothered creating a Wikipedia page for them.
