Chuck Baldwin Issues Flyer

I’ve been asked by several people where Chuck Baldwin, the Independent American / Constitution Party Presidential candiate stands on various issues.  I saw a flyer on and thought it was pretty good.  It has taken several issues and then had Chuck Baldwin’s quotes about that topic.

Reduce Oil Prices by Regulating Speculators?

I was reading an interesting article over at  The article asked regulating speculators would reduce oil prices.  It’s a good read.  Check it out and tell me what you think.


Government intervention will make the problem worse.  Didn’t we already experience what happens when government interferes with the free market while Carter was president?

Speculation makes markets react faster and increases liquidity.  Without liquidity the market could be much worse and subject to larger price fluctuations.

Speculators are not the problem.  The number 1 problem is government created:  The Gulf War has cost 600 Billion dollars.  Rather than force Americans to pay for this in taxes, the government has borrowed and printed money.  This has caused the dollar to crash in value.  Oil is a commodity, just like gold, copper, and steel.  All of these items have gone up in dollars as the dollar has gone done in value.

If the dollar held it’s past value, oil would be under $100 a barrel.

Besides the crashing dollar, other significant causes are:  increasing demand from Asia, decrease in new discoveries, subsidized gas in China, and high per capita consumption in the U.S.

Speculation is a debatable factor.  I don’t think it hurts us, but I know government interference will!”

Quote of the Moment

I believe it was Albert Einstein who said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.  Americans have been electing Republicans and Democrats over and over again, and we have been getting the same results.  Let’s try something different this year.
What do you say?

Josh likes Mikey

Its been a couple of busy days, so I’m behind on blogging.  🙂

Josh is teething, so of course, he’s crying a lot.  Yesterday (Sunday) morning, Josh woke up crying.  I picked him up and tried to calm him down.  No luck.  Mommy took him, still Josh cried.  So, Amanda & I took turns getting ready for Church.  Josh was still crying.  I went and put him in his crib and then went and got Mikey from his room, waking him up.  I laid Mikey on our bed and started to get him ready for Church.  I went and got Josh and laid him on the bed next to Mikey.  Josh saw Mikey and Mikey reached out and held Josh’s hand and… Joshy stopped crying.

Election Guide for the 2008 Primary Election

Tomorrow is the Primary Election in Nevada.  After consulting with my friends and my own individual study, I’ve decided to create my own Election Guide.  I’ve spent quite a bit of time on this, so I hope it is helpful.  I didn’t do list every office, nor every candidate.  Let me know what you guys think.  If it’s popular, I’ll try to create one for future elections.  And, I’ll try to have it ready in time for early voting.
