The Veterans Party of America is currently organizing to take on the two party system in November with our platform of restoring the Constitution and bringing the troops home.
Concerned originally with Republicans and Democrats in Congress cutting benefits and pensions for both active military and our armed service veterans, veterans came together to take on the political establishment. The VPA national convention is set for May 17th and will take place online.
I recently spoke against HB1608, an attempt by gun grabbing Democrats to put gun owners in prison for merely owning a magazine (a metal box with a spring) that has the capacity to hold more than 10 rounds. Many stock firearms already come with a higher capacity magazines when you buy them. Under the Clinton Assault Weapons ban, gun owners were sent to prison for ten years because a shotgun or rifle in their collection ended up on the AWB List!
Among third parties and many political reformers, SCORE-THEN-AUTOMATIC-RUNOFF (STAR) voting has gained a lot of traction, and appears to do well for high profile offices like the presidency.
"STAR Voting is a new proposed system where voters use a 5 star ballot to give each candidate a score from 0-5 to show their preferences. The two highest scoring candidates are finalists. The finalist that was preferred by more voters wins."
Politicians in Manchester, Cheshire County, Deerfield, Lyme, Harrison, Lawrence, and other towns and states have turned their communities into so-called Sanctuary Cities, which career criminals and illegal immigrants have admitted that they target because they can evade deportation while committing crimes in those cities and towns. The public were not notified beforehand and didn't find out until after the decision had been made. Police are prevented from enforcing federal immigration laws, complying with federal immigration retainer requests, or sometimes even opening emails from ICE.
"Abramson also found support for his petition among local officials. Hampton Selectman Regina Barnes, a President Donald Trump supporter planning to run for state Senate, said the school ballot may not be the place for the petition but still applauded Abramson for submitting it. She said she believes strongly in enforcing the nation’s immigration laws and wants to prevent New Hampshire communities like her town from becoming sanctuary communities. 'These people think Hampton’s got this big shield around it that’s going to prevent (sanctuary cities) from happening here. That’s not the case,' said Barnes. 'I understand why Max did it, completely, and I actually support his effort.'”
Rep. Max Abramson, L-Seabrook, thought there might be another loophole, because of the large amount of duplex condos in his area. Wouldn’t that law not just allow for a tax break on a small apartment, but a property tax break on half of the property, he asked.
And Margaret Byrnes, executive director of the New Hampshire Municipal Association, testified that it would be difficult for towns to decide who is a non-family member, and more importantly, the municipalities have nothing to gain by this, and only revenue to lose.
“Wouldn’t it discourage towns from wanting to approve ADUs?” Abramson asked later.
Well, the Academic Industrial Complex, that is both the public school system, which is about a trillion dollars a year, and colleges and universities are about 560 billion dollars a year. That's a big Democrat Party contributor, or I should say, constituency. The hospital industry and the medical industry is like 3 trillion dollars. They are also a big Democrat contributor. So, together they're called "Meds and Ed." In my opinion, the reason that the Democratic Party is no longer the party of the working class, is that their biggest constituency: trial lawyers and advanced education are no longer about helping ordinary people. They've really become about the almighty dollar. Our college campuses almost always go Democrat, every single year, no matter what. So no matter what you do, just like a lot of high-crime ghettos, they don't have any political clout, the college students don't have political clout, and so they kind of just keep getting raked over the coals year after year. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, which is the college I first went to, now charges students about 71,000 dollars a year to attend, and it's almost all student loans.
Rep. MAX ABRAMSON
