Red Pill Politics Returns To The Internet

    I had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Dave Kopacz in 2012. He was working with the Rand Paul crowd and the Liberty Clubhouse on the 8th floor of Brad Wyatt’s old building in Worcester Mass.. He was so gracious to invite me to many events over the next couple of years. In 2014 he came to my Candidate’s Symposium at that same building and brought so many people with him to make that event shine.

In 2016 I was honored to be asked to film his 2nd Amendment Rally in Belchertown Mass. The link that begins the many speakers filmed is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFP…
Dave has now asked me to once again come and film, hook up sound and witness the two great Americans who carry on the legacy of their Patriarch. On Feb 18th at the AMVETS in Haverhill Mass; wife and daughter Jeanette and Challice Finicum will wind up their Northeast visit to speak once again about the tragedy of the murder of their husband/father at the hands of Obama’s BLM and FBI; Lavoy Finicum.
Dave himself has been targeted by government, police and has been the target of Mass Republican Politics as well leading up to the split in the Mass Republican Assembly. That split was one of the major causes of Charlie Baker being elected as our Governor over Mark Fisher. I have interviewed Mark twice on my show. I was (also) thrown out of the same amount of events held by Baker’s campaign team. This pales in comparison to what Dave has gone through.
So, I write this piece in Solidarity of Red Pill Politics. At two opposite ends Dave and I have worked hard to bring politcal sense to this state by way of our broadcasts. Dave was a major influence of mine. I watched him work his magic at The Liberty Clubhouse and on Youtube. It was watching him that I got the idea of my own Network. Dave Kopacz and Red Pill Politics was one of the original, Liberty online broadcasts here in Massachusetts and has spurred on many. Those who have, can only claim to be following in his footsteps, including me.
It has been far too long since Red Pill Politics returned to the Internet. On February 18th, it will…

From Here On Out.

 

With the inauguration of the 45th President there is now a sea change in the way our nation’s government will run. From this point forward it will become incrementally difficult for elements within and without to counter a surge of Americanism, Patriotism and accountability of our elected. As I have stated on my radio show and on my many blog postings it was virtually impossible for grassroots candidates to get a snowball’s chance in Hell of getting on the ballot let alone elected. Once and a great while we would see a win in some far flung district but, that was it.

I have had the honor to speak with many of these candidates over the 9 years of broadcasting in various forms. Time and time again I would see them lose. Not because of lack of message, virtue, fortitude or a clear policy but because of party politics working behind the scenes to marginalize them. More egregious was most of it was from within their own party.

Allen R Waters is a Candidate for Massachusetts Senate. I had the great pleasure to speak with him on my show January 17th. His candor and decorum is seldom seen in a candidate. Allen has come up the ladder the old fashioned way. His success is his and is well deserved. He has not let his ethnicity be a factor on his way through life but rather has just persevered by his own grit and determination as an American.

His opponent, Elizabeth Warren is the polar opposite. Here is a woman who lied on her Harvard application about her ethnicity, charged an outrageous sum of money to teach at that college, has spent the majority of her adult life as a 1%-er, ascended to the Senate with the sole intention of rubberstamping every government rule, law and regulation that crossed her desk. At the same time she has purposely worked to make life difficult for small businesses, middle income families, upholding the Elitist status of her small clique and bullies any one who challenges the status quo as a racist. Her treatment of Trump supporters and his Cabinet nominees is nothing short of shameful.

 

This has been a constant for decades from both parties. Obstructionism is the policy. Change is a dangerous thing to those who benefit most from stagnation for it means the very real potential of being left behind. Populism is a dangerous thing to those who benefit most from Elitism for it means the loss of power.

And power, the acquisition of it and maintenance of it, is the reason why Obstructionism and Elitism exist.

This ‘sea change’ can usher in a new wave of American Populism. For most of the 20th Century the political pendulum swung right to left never returning to where it was intended to be at by our Founders; at center-right. Progressivism always pushed the settling needle further left until we have reached the point where our youth truly believe we are a Democracy. With the election of the 45th President the obstacles preventing the needle from returning to it’s original position have been removed.

In the upcoming election seasons of 2017 and 2018 we could potentially see more of that Obstructionist policy whittled away. Candidates like Allen R Waters represent the opportunity to replace the Leftist Elitism that has represented Massachusetts for half a century. Scott Brown’s stint was a fluke in an era of controversy over Obamacare. The election of a true grassroots candidate under a new White House Administration will be the wheel that turns in making America great again.

Principles

Principles

“Independence is my happiness,
and I view things as they are,
without regard to place or person;
my country is the world,
and my religion is to do good.”

Thomas Paine, The Rights of Man

 

When Thomas Paine wrote these words in 1791, he was writing in opposition to Edmund Burke’s defense of the aristocracy and the corrupt system that they had built for their own benefit.  In a previous 100 years, the taxes imposed by the English government had increased almost tenfold (from 1.8 million pounds to 17 million pounds). By comparison, the budget of the U.S. government has increased to 14 times the U.S. budget of 100 years ago (after adjusting for inflation).  Much like U.S. citizens of the 21st century, English citizens were oppressed by a government gone wild.  The aristocrats were shielded from the taxes and regulations that were causing much grief among the lower classes.

Paine pointed out how useless the aristocrats were:

“The aristocracy are not the farmers who work the land, and raise the produce, but are the mere consumers of the rent; and when compared with the active world are the drones, a seraglio of males, who neither collect the honey nor form the hive, but exist only for lazy enjoyment.”

 Paine believed that the national character of the English had changed over the previous century and that this was why they put up with the abuse:

“It would have been impossible to have dragooned the former English, into the excess of taxation that now exists; and when it is considered that the pay of the army, the navy, and of all the revenue officers, is the same now as it was about a hundred years ago, when the taxes were not above a tenth part of what they are at present, it appears impossible to account for the enormous increase and expenditure on any other ground, than extravagance, corruption, and intrigue.”
Like the English of the 18th century, has the national character of Americans changed such that we continue to believe the lies put forward by Progressives for the past 100 years? Dismally, it almost looks so.
Many freedom loving Americans are confounded by the 2016 Presidential campaign.  If the polls are to be believed, we are headed for one of most bizarre choices in the history of Presidential politics.  How did we get here?  It seems like far too many Americans have lost sight of some of the most fundamental aspects of liberty.  We are being driven by personalities and policies, but lack the rudder of principle.
Thomas Paine was a man of principle, who had suffered much by the end of his life because he refused to compromise those principles.
“To me, who have not only refused offers, because I thought them improper, but have declined rewards I might with reputation have accepted, it is no wonder that meanness and imposition appear disgustful.”   
Some of the choices offered to us for President this year seem to be lacking principle altogether.  Can we survive?  Yes!  What is important is that the citizenry adhere to principles based on limited government, a free market, and individual rights.  These are the principles that the Tea Party movement sprouted from.
Do not worship those who fail to acknowledge the most basic principles of liberty, of the free market, and of our natural rights.  What is the most important characteristic that you are looking for in our next President?  Is it only that they beat the other team?  Is it that they are the least offensive?  Or, is it that your choice has the resolve to defend liberty?
As an organization, the Worcester Tea Party does not endorse candidates, but we do ask that you consider their belief in our principles.  Are they for limited government, Constitutional rights, and a free market?  It’s a tall order, but you should not settle for less.
