YANKEE & REDNECK REBELLS OF THE ENLIGHTENMENT

the true heirs of the Daughters & Sons of Liberty


Science has confirmed what was common knowledge; men with erections lose approximately 50% of the cognitive functions and over 75% of their ability to reason. Obviously this explains a lot, particularly with teenage boys and young men in their early twenties, both whom always have an erection.


Therefore, we are rebranding Teddy Roosevelt’s progressive Bull Moose Party based on a more enlightened Progressive ideology reflected by a true progressive from Teddy’s area, Mark Twain. This entails international economic and social justice, the only way to create a sustainable environment.


Teddy’s concept of Progressive politics included imperialism and racism, or Nativism as it was called in polite society and the press. Nativism also permeated Andrew Jackson and William Jennings Bryan progressive, populist politics sentiments echoed by today’s Tea Party. But racism & imperialism are an abomination and goes against the true progressive principles of the Enlightenment.


However, Teddy was an environmentalist who nationalize private land to expand the Commons by creating parks. He also created anti-Trust laws against corporate monopolies and malfeasance while fighting the Robber Barons. The title of Robber Barons was not a euphemism, they earned that name by breaking the law while amassing outrageous fortunes and damaging the Commonwealth of the Nation. In addition to these anti-corporate measures, Teddy was in favor of independent civil servants to regulate corporations and individual businesses.














The next generation of Roosevelts produced Franklin Delano Roosevelt, one of the most popular presidents in American history. FDR was also one of America’s greatest presidents because he was an American Socialist. FDR’s New Deal provided food, shelter and jobs at home during the Great Depression, which was also caused by Wall Street and their Corporate Cronies. FDR’s Foreign Policy was based on the Good Neighbor Policy that help to establish economic suability across the southern boarder to Latin America.



HISTORICALLY, FDR’S NEW DEAL LAID THE FOUNDATION FOR THE LONGEST PERIOD OF PROSPERITY IN AMERICAN HISTORY.


IT WAS AMERICA SOCIALISM AT IT’S BEST.


HOWEVER, WE CAN DO BETTER!




New Moose Party

The New Moose Party understands that Tax Dollars invested in Infrastructure is the engine that drives the economy. Historically politicians have understood this basic economic principle. Alexander Hamilton, our first Treasury Secretary, did not believe in Free Market or Free Trade. Hamilton imposed tariffs to protect American businesses. He also believed in a planned economy where he would direct not only the development of infrastructure but who would profit from the government programs.[1] But we must also remember that Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson correctly accused Hamilton of creating an economy based on the British system that the Colonies had rebelled against. Hamilton’s two-tied economic and tax system disenfranchised workers and small framers and created a new Aristocracy of Speculators based on Wall Street.


Within this context, corporations involved in the Oil industry claim that innovations to establish a clean, sustainable environment are too costly. But what they are actually concerned about is their potential loss of profits, not what is best for the Commonwealth of the Nation. If the cost of the Wars in the Mid East were to be included into the price of Oil, then the price would accurately reflect the true cost of this commodity.


Be assured that there are alternatives to Hamilton’s economic model. Thomas Jefferson, Aaron Burr, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson all supported progressive and socialist programs, the only successful policy for the peace and prosperity.

NEW MOOSE PLATFORM

  1. 1.Debt remission of all liabilities incurred through fraudulent financial transactions. This includes both the National Debt and Personal Debt. Prosecute to the full extent of the law all criminal activity of banker and financial institutions. And remission of all student debt, both current and future student debt till 2036.

  2. 2.A Constitutional Amendment that clearly states that Corporations DO NOT have the Rights of Citizens.

  3. 3.Nationalize the Federal Reserve Bank [Fed] and give low interest loans directly to the People. Ron Paul and Conservative Libertarians want to close the Federal Reserve Bank. Progressive Libertarians want to nationalize the Fed and restore the productive potential of the People. Dennis Kucinich proposed The NEED ACT that would nationalize the Fed and place it in the Treasury Department. Kucinich proposed using Wall Street’s profits for The People’s Equity paying for education, health care and infrastructure to build local communities.

  4. 4.All Corporations that utilize research and development financed in whole or in part by Taxes must pay a licensing fee before taxes. If such policies were in effect during the development of the computer and cell phones, Health Care, Education and other Public Services would be Free and the National Debt would not be an issue.

  5. 5.Require that all electronic devices be designed to reduce power consumption.

  6. 6.Require all products to be either biodegradable or recyclable.

  7. 7.Rebuild the Commonwealth of the Nation by ending subsidies to Corporations and instead subsidize economic strategies that allow individuals and local communities the ability to be producers rather than merely consumers. This would include, but not be limited to, subsidizing local, cooperative ventures to install and produce alternative, clean energy.

  8. 8.A National Tax on all Corporations and Businesses to pay for infrastructure and social services. This would also reduce the competition that states and local communities face when corporations ask for tax breaks and subsidies to move into their communities causing local residents to pay higher taxes.

  9. 9.Repeal NAFTA and all Free Trade treaties and replace them with Fair Trade and  an International Living Wage. This is the only hope for a clean, sustainable environment because you cant have a clean environment without international social and economic justice. And it is directly related to FDR’s Good Neighbor Police [above].

  10. 10.Change the color of the American Flag to Red, White, Blue and Green with Green signifying the environment and economic justice.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

First Inaugural Address

Saturday, March 4, 1933

[Teddy quotes below]


    “...This is preeminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly. Nor need we shrink from honestly facing conditions in our country today. This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory. I am convinced that you will again give that support to leadership in these critical days.”

    “Stripped of the lure of profit [Wall Street and their corporate cronies] by which to induce our people to follow their false leadership, they have resorted to exhortations, pleading tearfully for restored confidence. They know only the rules of a generation of self-seekers. They have no vision, and when there is no vision the people perish.  

    “The money changers have fled from their high seats in the temple of our civilization. We may now restore that temple to the ancient truths. The measure of the restoration lies in the extent to which we apply social values more noble than mere monetary profit.

    “Happiness lies not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort. The joy and moral stimulation of work no longer must be forgotten in the mad chase of evanescent profits. These dark days will be worth all they cost us if they teach us that our true destiny is not to be ministered unto but to minister to ourselves and to our fellow men.” [However we did not learn, so Wall Street’s tyranny has returned! And Obama is no Roosevelt, definitely no FDR but not even Teddy.]



Teddy Roosevelt

quotes

http://kenfran.tripod.com/teddy.htm



“... let me say again that my plea is not for immunity to, but for the most unsparing exposure of, the politician who betrays his trust, of the big business man who makes or spends his fortune in illegitimate or corrupt ways. There should be a resolute effort to hunt every such man out of the position he has disgraced.”

    Theodore Roosevelt, speech, "The Man With The Muck Rake" (April 15, 1906)



“If our political institutions were perfect, they would absolutely prevent the political domination of money in any part of our affairs. We need to make our political representatives more quickly and sensitively responsive to the people whose servants they are. More direct action by the people in their own affairs under proper safeguards is vitally necessary. The direct primary is a step in this direction, if it is associated with a corrupt-practices act effective to prevent the advantage of the man willing recklessly and unscrupulously to spend money over his more honest competitor. It is particularly important that all moneys received or expended for campaign purposes should be publicly accounted for, not only after election, but before election as well. Political action must be made simpler, easier, and freer from confusion for every citizen. I believe that the prompt removal of unfaithful or incompetent public servants should be made easy and sure in whatever way experience shall show to be most expedient in any given class of cases.”

    Theodore Roosevelt, speech at Osawatomie, Kansas, "The New Nationalism" (August 31, 1910)



“No man can be a good citizen unless he has a wage more than sufficient to cover the bare cost of living, and hours of labor short enough so that after his day's work is done he will have time and energy to bear his share in the management of the community, to help in carrying the general load. We keep countless men from being good citizens by the conditions of life with which we surround them. We need comprehensive workmen's compensation acts, both State and national laws to regulate child labor and work for women, and, especially, we need in our common schools not merely education in booklearning, but also practical training for daily life and work. We need to enforce better sanitary conditions for our workers and to extend the use of safety appliances for our workers in industry and commerce, both within and between the States.”

    Theodore Roosevelt, speech at Osawatomie, Kansas, "The New Nationalism" (August 31, 1910)



“The men of wealth who today are trying to prevent the regulation and control of their business in the interest of the public by the proper government authorities will not succeed, in my judgment, in checking the progress of the movement. But if they did succeed they would find that they had sown the wind and would surely reap the whirlwind, for they would ultimately provoke the violent excesses which accompany a reform coming by convulsion instead of by steady and natural growth.”

    Theodore Roosevelt, speech, "The Man With The Muck Rake" (April 15, 1906)



“To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.”

    Theodore Roosevelt, Seventh Annual Message to U.S. Congress (December 3, 1907)

quotes


“There is not in the world a more ignoble character than the mere money-getting American, insensitive to every duty, regardless of principle, bent only on amassing a fortune.”


“...let us prohibit in effective fashion all corporations from making contributions for any political purpose, directly or indirectly.”
