Gaining Power Via the Dependency of Her People

“We must remember that nations that choose socialism suffer the slow and agonizing
death of moral and cultural decay and disintegration. Why?
Because the high priests of socialism who offer the temptations of statist programs and benefits
aren’t seeking the welfare of their people. Socialism at its heart is atheistic and has no moral compass.
Its lifeblood is power—power gained through dependency, and
once dependency is accomplished, socialism becomes the great destroyer!
It destroys:
Wealth
Dignity
Faith
Family
Freedom
We cannot allow our beloved nation to go down the path of totalitarian states.”

Criminalized for the Lack of Bail

“Money bail is ruining the lives of literally millions of poor people
and costing the country unnecessary billions of dollars
in incarceration costs every year.
Local jail populations grew by 19.8 percent just between 2000 and 2014,
with pretrial detention accounting for 95 percent of that growth. …
… The single feature shared by almost every defendant in pretrial detention is that they are poor.
Rich people make bail; poor people don’t.
Regardless of actual guilt or innocence,
poor people are criminalized for their inability to buy their way out of jail.”

Pleading GUILTY While Innocent

“The major shortages of judges, prosecutors, and public defenders,
coupled with the number of people being held in jail awaiting trial
has led to a crisis
in which it is not possible
for every defendant who wants a day in court to get one.
So, the courts need a way to keep the trials from taking place.
By imprisoning poor people who cannot put up money for bail,
the system uses the threat or reality of extended imprisonment
to extract guilty pleas, even from people who are innocent
or have other valid defenses.
Not able to get a timely trial, they have only one option – plead guilty.
It is a Hobson’s choice, more so even than many of the defendants realize,
because the guilty please have serious collateral consequences
they may not even be aware of and which stay with them for the rest of their lives.
But, pleading guilty is what they do by the thousands, every day, all over America.”

American Independence By, Of, & For the People

 

“Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare their independence.
Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies that put our citizens first.
They will have the chance to reject today’s rule by the global elite, and to embrace real change
that delivers a government of, by and for the people.”

For Our Americans

 

“Decades of record immigration have produced lower wages and higher unemployment for our citizens,
especially for African-American and Latino workers.
We are going to have an immigration system that works,
but one that works for the American people.”
