This is a brief video clip that underscores the differences between saying what you have to, to get elected and then doing almost the exact opposite. Full deceptions film can be viewed on line at www.deceptionsusa.com

This clip clearly shows that in the big scheme of things whether it is a Democrat or a Republican the people always lose and the elite always win. Don’t forget this guy sold himself as representing REAL CHANGE.

Romney or Obama … What did Bette Midler say? Elections or erections either way we get screwed.

Calling all Liberty-loving Vermonters!

If you are waiting for a President, Congress, Governor Shumlin or our sitting VT legislators to fix all of our growing political and economic problems, to restore our freedoms and livelihoods, you will still be waiting when hell freezes over.

We have got to fix the situation ourselves, with grit and courage.

There is a simple and dramatic way to get real change in Vermont and from here to change the Nation:

The Vermont Thirty is a coalition of Independent candidates, running together for ALL 30 SEATS in the VT Senate. –Retire the entire sitting Senate!– The Senate will be full of US!

And remember this: A majority of the VT Senate can say NO to anything a governor or the President or the Congress wants to shove down our throats. That “NO” includes NO to higher taxes, oppressive regulation, borrowing, debt, corporate power, austerity, Agenda 21 and other restrictions on freedom and opportunity… And we will find a way to stand against these brutal wars, occupations and rapid centralization. Small is beautiful. And effective.

Just say yes, and we’ll all say “no” together, and make our “no” stick.

Say “yes”, to a new life for business, farms, and attractive opportunities for our children to make a life in Vermont. Yes, to local solutions and THE POWER OF YOU in your Legislature and your town….Yes to that kind of Revolution in Vermont this year!

Revolution 2012 in VermontAnd since such a thing as 30 INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES RUNNING FOR EVERY SEAT in a state Senate has never been done before… we will be noticed and written about by the press, both here in VT and nationally. And our run will catch fire! And the people will rise with us.

Join us! We will have fun while we say what needs saying and then do what needs doing. Let us pledge ourselves to being politically “outragious” because BOREDOM IS DEATH. So is fear.

Governors and Presidents do not make laws or vote on laws. Only legislators do that. (So now you understand why corporate criminals have focused on buying up Congress and our legislatures for so long.) Our congressional delegation utters platitudes about ending the wars, and then all three vote for continued funding of those wars. Politics 101.

To break the corporate hold on us, WE THE PEOPLE WILL BECOME THE VERMONT SENATE. Then you will see if the VT House, the Governor, Congress or the corporations and their lobbyists can keep us down. They cannot! Join us. Run with us at them all.

Though the movement for Vermont’s political independence has been in existence for a number of years, its size and profile has been recently increasing. Last year, almost a dozen Vermonters openly ran for political office as advocates of independence, and the outreach done by their campaigns brought many fresh faces into the movement. Furthermore, we’ve also recently received an unprecedented level of coverage from the press, which culminated recently with Vermont being named by TIME Magazine as one of the world’s top ten “aspiring nations.”

To build upon these gains and bring the independence movement to the next level, we’re pleased to announce the formation of a new organization: the Vermont Independence Alliance (VIA). Intended to be grass-roots and democratic, VIA will provide a “big tent” under which the diverse supporters of a Free Vermont can organize locally around the following principles:

  1. Local Action: We believe that increasing the resilience, autonomy, and self-reliance of our communities is essential to the prosperity and happiness of the people of Vermont. We are therefore dedicated to supporting service projects which strengthen our communities and strive to meet local needs with local resources.
  2.  

  3. Electoral Reform: We believe that the two-party system fails to honestly represent the interests of the people of Vermont; consequently, we support electoral reforms aimed at allowing for the true diversity of Vermonters’ opinions and ideas to be represented in a fair, multi-party political system.
  4.  

  5. Political Independence: We believe that Vermont should return to its status as an independent republic through peaceful withdrawal from the United States of America, and affirm that such an act of self-determination is both legal and legitimate as long as it reflects the will of the people of our state. As such, we are committed to educating our fellow citizens about the advantages of independence, and actively back candidates for public office who support that goal.

In order to advance these shared principles, VIA chapters will first be organized in each of our state’s counties. These groups will serve as local hubs of both political activism and community service, forming the movement’s sturdy, grass-roots foundation. Once a sufficient number of counties are organized, a convention will be held to constitute a state-wide organization. While most resources and responsibilities will remain at the county level, the state organization will take the lead in coordinating large events and supporting state-wide candidates for public office.

If you support our principles and goals and would like to get involved in your county, please enter your information into the form here. Once enough people in your county have expressed interest in starting a VIA chapter, we will schedule an organizational meeting and help you get this project underway in your community!
